Rainy Fall Day

This tree was full of color just showing off by itself on the banks of the Ute River in Ukraine! What beauty and glory it shows. Just one tree made all the difference in the way you look at this scene. We can make a difference in this world, just like this tree... one by one! I hope I made a difference in someones life while I was there.

I just love Fall... There is nothing like cuddling up with a cup of java and watching Martha Stewart. But the best thing about today is... my oldest Ryan is here with us for a couple of days! That makes it so special to me.

If you know me, you know that my boys and hubby are the light of my life. I love my guys! Sometimes life deals a crappy deck your way and the best way to deal with it is to come home and sleep, eat, and visit. That's just what we are doing the next couple of days.
When I was in the Hospital the other day, one of the guys were calling every hour. They are so protective of Momma!
Love, love, love 'em! MY GUYS!

I am still off waiting for my cultures to come back. I certainly don't want to pass any of this to my kiddo at school. Fall Break starts on Wed. so I will stay home all week and get well. We will hit the ground running next week.

Ok, now on a happier note... my friend at Little Town Big Life, posted them funniest picture of the yaya's. Gee, we are so bee-u-t-ful! Not, we had gone to eat at our favorite haunt in Tulsa and couldn't leave until we created some laughs. Well, I don't know who laughed more us, or the people starring at us! Don't care! Go check it out.

My BFF got tickets to Chonda Peirce! Have you seen her? Oh goodness, she will be in Tulsa at 1st Baptist Church Tulsa. Get tickets now. We will be the ones laughing our heads off. She is so funny and such a woman of faith. She is from the south and a preachers daughter! She will give her testimony and create such a wonderful afternoon. I cant wait to go. Its the last Sunday of Oct. Call now, put down the jave and do it, now!

BFF also talked about the Sweet Potato Queens. Yep, we live vicariously through them! We all want to be them, but as BFF said we are just 'spuds in training'. I am not at all shy. I can do about anything. I think next year we will dress up and be in the Cville Halloween Parade. I don't know if we can pull it off this year, but maybe, be there and see! The group on the mission trip found out how 'unshy' I am , when we were at the Slovakian/Hungary border and I had to GO! I got my toilet paper, got off the bus and went over to the stern guard. I pointed to the TP, and asked in my nice 'southern drawl', and I do a good one, where the nearest toilet would be located! The entire bus was laughing so hard i could hear them. Well, they don't have women border guards, so NO women's toilet. I would have used the men's. The stern border guard in his broken English explained that the toilet was very dirty! Like I wasn't already infected with a parasite! But, No potty for me, we had to go 5 km. to the potty. Now being American, I don't know how far 5kms. would be!!!! I took longer because the driver missed the potty place. Yikes, I was so glad to finally stop.

Ok, so enough rambling, I need to get on with the day. I have a PEO meeting tonight. I just scared the bejeezer out of Ryan. I need to get a surprise pkg. to take/send. I mentioned when we go to Owasso, I need to stop and get something. He about crapped out thinking it was here. These boys know the difference between 'clean' and 'PEO clean'. If we had to PEO clean this house today we would need to call for reinforcements!!!!

Have a great comfy fall day!
