Beautiful Monday Morning!

Here it is, the most beautiful Monday morning I have experienced in a long time this summer.  With the sweltering heat wave that many of the states have been enduring these past few months it is no wonder that I have finally ventured out of my cool air-conditioned home to sit on the front porch and observe the daily activities in the neighborhood.

If you are like me and do not enjoy the excesive heat of the summer months and like to stay inside just browsing through websites and reading and watching television off and on and occasionally going out to do the grocery shopping and pay bills, unless you pay bills online, which I do not for the reason I don’t feel safe doing so, then I usually wait for a break in the heat and then venture outside for short periods of time.

I am not an active person anymore at my age now, although I am not ancient  as I like to tell my little grandaughter from time to time, but I do try to get out and walk about the yard and up and down the drive.  That alone helps me to keep moving and to talk to my neighbors and keep up to date on what is happening in our small community.

I do apologize for not posting anything on my blog site but I have been so busy trying to read so many new blog sites and to follow as many of you as I can.  I don’t know if anybody is still reading me or following me but probably not since I am sure that many people don’t get viewers if they do not post on a daily basis as so many other people do.

I love what I am reading on the websites that I am following.  Love to do this on a daily basis as I just don’t like getting out to go to the library to get a book or 2.  I just find it so convienent to follow blogs everyday.

They make for so much interesting reading.  I am going to be doing that as soon as I finish up my page here. I am still having trouble finding how to put pictures up on my page but I am going to keep trying until I get it right.  After all a person can make so many mistakes trying to do something but if they keep at it they finally accomplish what they set out to do so maybe I can finally master the technique of getting my pictures onto my blog page successfully before to long.

Maybe before I turn 90 years young anyway.  I will close for now and start checking out more blog sites and follow more of you.  Until then keep blogging and take care.

 

See you later,

MONDAY, MAY 23, 2016

It is early Monday morning and I am still awake.  Have no idea what is keeping me up all hours of the night and this has been going on for the last 2 weeks now.

I do not often stay up late unless it is to browse the internet and read the news articles and to follow the word press sites of other writers.

The weather has been rather wet lately and I hope that it starts to improve before long.  I don’t like to stay inside to much during the spring and the summer months.  I like to be out of doors as I am sure that many of you do.

I have been following the presidential running candidates lately and think that Hillary Clinton may become our next President.  She seems to have the right platform at this time such as Health Care Reform and raising the mininum wage for workers across the United States and trying to keep our jobs here instead of moving them overseas to other countries.

I don’t know how other peope feel about her promises that she says she will make happen when and if she gets elected President.  Trump on the other hand is beginning to look like a nightmare in the making and I am beginning to hope that he does not get elected.

If we have to rely on Hillary Clinton to become our next President will she be able to get the Congress and the Senate to work with her and make all those promises that she is reiterating in her campaign speeches become a realitity for all of us Americans.

Is she going to have her husband the former President of the United States behind her telling her how to do the job.  I have no idea what to think about all her promises and the ones that Bernie Sanders is making doesn’t look all that promising for all of us either.

I just hope that the one I vote for will be a good President and work for all of us and not just certain individuals.  That we are all supposed to be deemed equal and treated so justly.Well, however it goes may the best candidate win and do a great job of trying to repair this country and get our debt under control.

President Obama will be leaving the White House next year and leaving the mess behind that he couldn’t fix to someone else to take care of.  Who ever that person may be I wish them all the best of luck in the endeavor to straighten this country of ours out.

Until the next time I write on my blog page keep blogging everyone and I will try to keep following all the bloggers that I have been reading.

See you later and keep blogging,

Jayne

 

 

MARCH 7, 2016

I have been reading the news items I saw on my blog reader page and find many of them very interesting.  However, I think the one about Hillary Clinton supporting Obama’s use of military strikes in the overseas war in Afganastan and Iran not new.

I feel that we should elect a President who will bring all of our troops home and let these countries who are in conflict fight it out with each other on their own.  Hasn’t the United States sacraficed enough young lives in all of the wars that we have undertaken in other countries to bring world peace to.  It doesn’t look like that there will ever be world peace in this time.

We as a country should focus on our own United States and the impoverished circumstances of our own people who live here.  Why are we bringing other people over here from other countries.  We can’t seem to feed the homeless or put them in safe places already without the added burden of our government bringing more over here for us to try to help when it is evidently clear to me that we can’t take care of our own or our government leaders are spending money on themselves instead of putting the funding to the specific uses it was intended for in the first place.

I don’t know if anybody agrees with me about what I have just stated about our country not helping our own.  Can’t any President and any government body, the Senate and the Congress get together on this and do something to stop the suffering of the homeless and end the wars overseas.

I guess I am just ranting on my blog about the government and its lack of caring about people in general but on another note I hope that everybody has had a good day so far.

I am still reading the blog sites that I am following and hope that you are following my site also.  Until I blog again everybody stay safe, happy and healthy and keep blogging.

See you soon,

The Last Day Of February!!!

Thank goodness it is the last day of  February.  I am so happy to know that tomorrow is the first day of March and that in just a few weeks or even days warmer weather will be with us once again.

The winter months here in the state where I live have not been very cold for a winter season.  I am much relieved of that fact because my heating bills have been very low for this season.  When it is warm during our winter months down here we tend to save money on heating bills and that is a plus for many Tennesseans living in the South.

I have no complaints at this time and I doubt if I will have any when it becomes Spring then fast turns into Summer for us.  I know that there will be many rainy days ahead but then isn’t it always like that when Winter is over and the new Spring season arrives.

Spring Break will be approaching for my little granddaughter and other children who are going to school.  I am sure that the college students are looking for a much needed break during their school year.

I haven’t any plans yet as to what I will be doing as soon as it starts getting warmer outside other than sitting on the front porch with the newspaper or a good book and a cup of coffee or a glass of cold sweet tea.

I hope that the approaching month of March finds all of you well and happy and looking forward to getting out and about with family and friends.

Until I blog again stay safe, happy and well and keep blogging.

See you later,

Jayne

 

 

FEBRUARY 20, 2016

This is Saturday and I am sitting here writing on my blog page today.  It seems to be a normal day so far.  Nothing out of the ordinary happening that seems to be so unusual to get my attention.

The weather today is unbelievably warm though to be the last week of February.  I am certainly not complaining as I love the warm weather over the cold any time.

I need to go shopping today so I can pick up groceries and other household supplies.  I am looking outside as I sit here and write this morning and I notice how green and lovely the lawn looks.  It will not be long until everybody in my neighborhood will be rolling out their lawmowers for another summer season of yard mowing and the landscaping companies here will be very busy trying to make the owners of new homes happy with their selection of trees, flowers and shrubbery.

Yes, business will be picking up during the upcoming summer months that will be approaching us again.  None to soon for me as I have been looking forward to the warm days ahead of me.  I am anxious to plant a few more rose bushes in the front and back yards.  I know I won’t be the only one where I live on this street looking forward to improving the looks of their front yards.  My little granddaughter told me just last night that she is looking forward to having time off from scchool during the last week of March for her spring break.

I cannot believe that the kids will be enjoying another Spring Break again soon either.  I bet the college kids will be anxious to get to the beaches in Florida for Spring Break again. I am sure all of us who had the opportunity to go to college have fond memories of our Spring Breaks, especially on the beaches where it was fun to be.  Playing volleyball and swimming and surfing the waves.

Well I am getting ready to go shopping and pick up the neccessities that I have wrote down on my shopping list.  Now to get out the door and get going.  Until then everybody keep blogging and stay happy and healthy and safe.

See you soon,

Jayne

 

 

 

FEBRUARY 15, 2016

It is Monday, the day after Valentine’s Day and it has been very quiet for me.  I got up this morning and had my breakfast which consisted of a waffle and a cup of my favorite moccha latte coffee.

After this I sat down at my computer and logged into my Word Press site and started reading several other posts on different sites.  This is what I love to do when I first wake up each morning.  I enjoy reading all the posts on as many sites as I can visit in one morning.

Sometimes I do this all day long.  It is so interesting to read what other people write about in their lives.  I love the pictures that they put up for everyone to see and to read about all the places that they have visited and the pictures that show the land and the cities that they have been to.

I also like reading about the history of the cities in different countries that the  bloggers have traveled through.  Although I don’t have the money to travel I have a chance to see the pictures and to actually wonder what it would be like to go where these people have been. To see how the people live in these countries and to see how what kind of jobs they work at.

I will continue to keep visiting as many sites as I can on the Word Press site and to follow as many blogs as I can each and every day.  Until then keep blogging and stay happy and healthy out there everybody.

See you soon,

Jayne

 

 

FEBRUARY 14, 2016, VALENTINE’S DAY!

Yes, here it is Valentine’s Day.  What a wonderful time of the year for everybody who are in love. Just think of all the chocolate candy and the flowers and cards that are being sent by special delivery today.  I hope that all of you are on the receiving end of some special gift from your sweetheart today.

All the newly wed couples will be enjoying this day to the fullest I am sure.  I know that I love being remembered on Valentine’s Day by my sweetheart.  There are so many gifts that people can give to one another on Valentine’s Day.  Gift certificates to spend a day at the spa, tickets to the opera, a sports game, a weekend get away at a bed and breakfast.

But whatever the choice is in the way of a gift for your special one I am sure that you will be very appreciated once they receive the gift from you. Valentine’s Day is also a day for couples to get engaged or married. I told my son who was married on Valentine’s Day that it would always be easy to remember his wedding anniversary and he wouldn’t have to be afraid that he would forget it.

I have always wondered what the most unusual kind of Valentine’s Day gift to give somebody would be.  If anybody stops by my website today and reads my blog post I hope that some of you will comment on what kind of gifts that you have received and have thought to be unique and unusual.

Until I blog again I wish everyone out there today a very Special Valentine’s Day and enjoy it to the fullest with your loved ones.

Keep blogging everybody,

See you soon,

Jayne
