    second home has wheels…

    There is nothing fancy about my life…as a matter of fact our “second home” is a trailer that we park at a ranch for the summer.

    I honestly don’t think the kids realize just how much “better” it could be. So, taking a cue from the smart young ones, I will simply say…

    it doesn’t get “better” than this.

    may you be blessed

    I just wanted to see missS in a new light!

    may you be blessed

    before and after…

    I have always wanted my kids to have a garden, be one with nature and see where food comes from because I never did. As a matter of fact, when I took my first plane ride (age13) to South Dakota in order to stay with my AuntR and UncleH on there bazillion-acre farm I was beyond speechless.

    The story of me running to get my purse and proper sandals because my AuntR said she was going out to get potatoes and would I like to come? continues to haunt me today.

    “YES, wait for me,” I hollered as I bolted into the house, not believing my luck that we were going “into town” today! “I’m comiiiiiiing, don’t leave, don’t leave, don’t leave,” I continued to shout as I quickly ran a brush through my hair while dashing back downstairs only to find my AuntR standing there with a grin. “Let’s go” she said and led me out the door and INTO THE GARDEN.

    “What?!?! Aren’t we going to get potatoes?” I asked completely confused. “Of course we are, where do you think potatoes come?” from she questioned me like I was 3 instead of 13. “Vons, they come from Vons.” I replied proud to answer her silly question and quite ready to get into town. She responded by laughing and pointing to the dirt which we were now standing in, ” No, honey, they come from the ground.”   

    Stunned into bewildered silence I simply stood staring and waiting for the punchline. It never came.

    I can still feel the disappointment today. No car ride to “town” no new lip gloss from Dell Rapids, just more dirt and now I had to actually dig in it so we could eat dinner tonight. I was not dressed for digging, I was dressed for shopping.

    That was how I learned where potatoes come from and why I needed my kids to have a garden, some sort of a garden so they too could learn that potatoes do not actually come from Vons.

    So, we made raised planter beds (and by we I mean “the mister”) and we cleared out the neglected rose garden (and by we I mean the kids) and we relocated a zillion rosebushes (and by “we” I mean… well you know)

    and eventually we (and by we I mean me too!) finally got our garden! 

    our garden “before”

    and “after”

    “We” also learned that some plants give you one thing, like ONE ear of corn, seriously, one ear?!? who knew?? 

    While others give you an abundance, hope everyone likes watermelon, cantaloupe and pumpkins.

    may you be blessed

    city whisperer…

    Needing someone to take care of that un-permitted room? That illegal garage addition? or facing “other” City issues? Well, help is on the way! There is someone out there that “speaks government” and he can accomplish what neither you nor I have time, energy or know-how to. He runs HpInspects (google it) or call him at 951.225.2988 and ask him some questions: if he can’t help you he will know someone who can.

    Trust me.

    He built me this is in a previously illegal space. All legal now!

    I’m loving it!

    may you be blessed

    hope…

     

     

                             Prayers  Knowledge Needed

     

    …I am hoping that in posting Chassity’s message, one of my readers might have some much needed insight to a very rare type of cancer. And I am a huge believer in the power of prayer, so I am hopeful that we can all make a difference. Please take a moment to read Amanda’s story through Chassity’s voice:

    ……………………………………………………………………………………

    One of my oldest and dearest friends needs some prayers in a major way.  It’s the most heart wrenching story, one that I’ll spare you most of the details, of a young woman with cancer. 

    My story with Amanda begins when we were kids.  We grew up together in the same small town and were close friends all throughout school.  Many, many memories.  Countless really.  We both went to college at Indiana University and were roomies for 3 of those 4 years.  After college graduation Amanda married and started a family in Indiana.  Even though I moved to Charleston she and I have remained close in that sacred “we’ll be friends forever” sort of way that only really good friends can have.

    

    In April of 2011 Amanda, along with her husband Aaron and their two daughters Ava and Ella, welcomed baby Nolan to the world.  The pregnancy had been one that was extremely difficult and painful due to a fibroid and a lymph node the size of a cantaloupe and a grapefruit.  In May, about one month after Nolan’s birth, we learned that Amanda has cancer.  After numerous tests and surgeries and a recent trip to MD Anderson in Houston, the cancer has been determined to be UTROSCT.  UTROSCT is an extremely rare form of cancer which stands for Uterine Tumor Resembling Ovarian Sex Chord Tumor.  Googling will pull up very little.  Sadly, it has already spread to her sacrum, breast, rib and skull.  To make this whole situation even more cruel, Amanda is experiencing unbearable pain.  But you wouldn’t know, I’ve not once heard her complain about it.  She began carboplatin/taxol chemo treatment yesterday, but it is a very hard road ahead, one that is in God’s hands. Because this cancer is so incredibly rare, they’re pretty much throwing darts at a treatment.  If you happen to have any information on UTROSCT (maybe you or someone you know has it) please contact me.  Likewise, if you know or happen to be an OB oncologist, please get in touch with me.  Any information would be helpful at this point.  You can visit Amanda’s Caring Bridge page to learn more about her condition.

    

    I humbly ask that you please take time out of your day to say a prayer for my friend Amanda, her family, her doctors, and for her strength.  I assure you that this amazing woman and her beautiful family are worth every second of your time.  And if you feel the need to do more, please share this post.  You never know who might see it and how it could help.I am taking a respite from Friday Eye Candy for something much more serious and time sensitive.  As you know, Chassity from Look, Linger, Love has become a sweet friend of mine through the blog world. We met up not too long ago in Charleston where she shared with me about her dear friend, Amanda. Since then, more has come to light and I am hoping that in posting Chassity’s message, one of my readers might have some much needed insight to a very rare type of cancer. And I am a huge believer in the power of prayer, so I am hopeful that we can all make a difference.

    One of my oldest and dearest friends needs some prayers in a major way.  It’s the most heart wrenching story, one that I’ll spare you most of the details, of a young woman with cancer. 

    My story with Amanda begins when we were kids.  We grew up together in the same small town and were close friends all throughout school.  Many, many memories.  Countless really.  We both went to college at Indiana University and were roomies for 3 of those 4 years.  After college graduation Amanda married and started a family in Indiana.  Even though I moved to Charleston she and I have remained close in that sacred “we’ll be friends forever” sort of way that only really good friends can have.

    

    In April of 2011 Amanda, along with her husband Aaron and their two daughters Ava and Ella, welcomed baby Nolan to the world.  The pregnancy had been one that was extremely difficult and painful due to a fibroid and a lymph node the size of a cantaloupe and a grapefruit.  In May, about one month after Nolan’s birth, we learned that Amanda has cancer.  After numerous tests and surgeries and a recent trip to MD Anderson in Houston, the cancer has been determined to be UTROSCT.  UTROSCT is an extremely rare form of cancer which stands for Uterine Tumor Resembling Ovarian Sex Chord Tumor.  Googling will pull up very little.  Sadly, it has already spread to her sacrum, breast, rib and skull.  To make this whole situation even more cruel, Amanda is experiencing unbearable pain.  But you wouldn’t know, I’ve not once heard her complain about it.  She began carboplatin/taxol chemo treatment yesterday, but it is a very hard road ahead, one that is in God’s hands. Because this cancer is so incredibly rare, they’re pretty much throwing darts at a treatment.  If you happen to have any information on UTROSCT (maybe you or someone you know has it) please contact me.  Likewise, if you know or happen to be an OB oncologist, please get in touch with me.  Any information would be helpful at this point.  You can visit Amanda’s Caring Bridge page to learn more about her condition.

    

    I humbly ask that you please take time out of your day to say a prayer for my friend Amanda, her family, her doctors, and for her strength.  I assure you that this amazing woman and her beautiful family are worth every second of your time.  And if you feel the need to do more, please share this post.  You never know who might see it and how it could help. 

    Prayers & Knowledge Needed

    …. I am hoping that in posting Chassity’s message, one of my readers might have some much needed insight to a very rare type of cancer. And I am a huge believer in the power of prayer, so I am hopeful that we can all make a difference. Please take a moment to read Amanda’s story through Chassity’s voice:

    Prayers & Knowledge Needed

    I am taking a respite from Friday Eye Candy for something much more serious and time sensitive.  As you know, Chassity from Look, Linger, Love has become a sweet friend of mine through the blog world. We met up not too long ago in Charleston where she shared with me about her dear friend, Amanda. Since then, more has come to light and I am hoping that in posting Chassity’s message, one of my readers might have some much needed insight to a very rare type of cancer. And I am a huge believer in the power of prayer, so I am hopeful that we can all make a difference. Please take a moment to read Amanda’s story through Chassity’s voice:
