Hailing.....Storms....

 Storms & Hail.......3 30 2012
I have seen it hail in my lifetime, but never this much at once! It was crazy, it was pouring down hail it covered everything! It was a little bigger than a dime,  a lot of it when it melted when it hit the ground.  It had been 78 degrees earlier in the day. I wasn't about to get too close to the window. Hubby closed all the mini blinds because it was hitting the windows so hard. Some people in the State reported quarter size hail, uggh can't imagine that like this! Oh how I'm dreading our weather this year. What a crazy March we have had. Record breaking warm temps, oh my! what is April going to bring....
April showers bring May flowers....do you see the Mum right there. I don't know how this poor flower is making it in the weather we've had!

Oh yeah storms coming our way!

Noah weather radio is not working, nice. Sirens went off and it didn't, a lot of good it's going to do, I fear it's going to be a loooooong night! Oh yeah, we have thunderstorm and possibly tornado warnings coming our way! After everything that's happened last year and already started this year, I'm getting freaked out! Ugghh!!!

Got my Vagabond Keys today!!!

Hubby just got the mail, and I got keys to my Vagabond that is still at JoAnn Fabrics....but when I do get it, I've got the keys to get it started :O) I told hubby wouldn't it be wonderful if one just showed up at my door....I know wishful thinking, but Hey! I've had things happen to me like this...so I'm going to stay positive :O) You know when you get a car key in the mail and if it fits, you win? Hmmm maybe I should try these keys :O)
Mostly it's been things like a check in the mail that I wasn't expecting when we needed it so badly!
Just this week, I had prayed Lord, we need money to get us through, and it's my fault because I had over spent money that I shouldn't have...That night or rather a.m. I had checked and sure enough money had been put in the bank that we were waiting for....the first thing I said was "I love you Lord, you are so good to us"
So thankful he supplies our needs and has mercy on us when we don't always do what we should!
I love stamping, and there is always new products and things coming out, and I have just decided that I'm going to be good! These are wants, and yes a need for me to have something to do that I enjoy, but I know I can live without, hope I don't have too :O)  It is so easy to spend money on things we want, and not the things we actually need! We pay our bills first, and then I usually buy things for stamping...and well sometimes things come up not expecting, and that's when I feel bad! I am strong enough to say "I DON'T NEED THIS OR THAT!
 "Everyday holds a possibility of a Miracle" This is a verse that is on my wall above my bed, and just about every night, I look at it and say it to myself! I don't know how many times I go to bed with a burden or need and I look at it and read it to myself, and to my hubby, and so many times those Miracle's have come just in the nick of time! Thank you Lord!!!

Haven't felt so great the last couple of days :(

I haven't felt so great the last couple of days. I've had a headache every night about the same time. Felt like I was taking the flu yesterday, feeling better today, but still not feeling so hot...
I don't know if it's from the weather front coming through or what, but I've had no energy...
Sorry I haven't been around to comment much! Hope tomorrow I'll feel better and feel like doing some stamping...
Hugs! Leah Ann

Happy Birthday Carrie Ann

Thinking back when my daughter was born on this date March 21st, and I'm not telling her age, uggh makes me feel soooo OLD! She looked like a little Papoose with tons of dark hair and her eyes so dark and a gorgeous complexion. The nurses had her hair in a curl on top of her head. The nurse carried her in to me and said here's your little Papoose :O) Then all of that dark hair fell out and she's my blue, blue eyed blonde haired little girl, and today she has a little boy with the blue eyes and blonde hair, our little miracle baby!
Happy Birthday my sweet daughter, love you bunches!!!!
