I am was a life long slob.      I decided in 2014 to clean up my act.      I gathered inspiration from Dana @ A Slob Comes Clean,   slob, humor, Nony     and others, and started out.      SLOWLY, very slowly.     My First Day was just sweeping, and mopping the living room, and it left me out of breath, and sweating.

I gathered momentum as I went along, and here I am 2 and 1/2 years later, all clean!      (And if you believe that, I have a bridge to sell ya!)        I’ll undoubtedly be blogging about this subject till I’m old, and gray.      You’re already old, and gray!      Does that mean you’re done now??          Uh, nope, I’ll be blogging about this until I forget how to type!

Advice: Hmmmmm…

#1. Have fun!

#2. Proofread each article at LEAST 3 times!!

Vital Valentine

slob, humor, happy Valentine's day           slob, humor, happy Valentine's day

I’ve already written about my Valuable Valentine, DD1!

(Yes, I’m gonna write in purple, red and pink today.    Please bear with me.  The pink are the links.)

Today, I’m talking about my Vital Valentine, Jesus!  slob, humor, heart

Most everyone is familiar with the verse, John 3:16.       (Even if you didn’t before, you probably recognize it now from Tim Tebow. )   

   slob, humor, Valentine                                                                           John 3:16.

Jesus is our vital Valentine.     He loves us so much, He died on the cross for our sin.

If you believe you are a sinner, repent, and ask Jesus to forgive you, you are now a child of God!

You will never be lonely again, because God the Father promises to never leave us or forsake us.      Hebrews 13:5

So, even if you have no human significant other, you will always be loved!!

slob, humor, double heartsslob, humor, double hearts

“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”              Jeremiah 31:3

slob, humor, heart

If you prayed this prayer, please email me and tell me!!     I will be so happy to hear that!!     And, the angels in heaven will be having a party, to rejoice too!!

Luke 15:10 [Full Chapter]

“Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.”
If you have any questions about the Bible, email me those too!!       I love to hear from y’all, and would love to help you in anyway I can!

Frog Friend

My friend, Jennifer, who blogs as Feisty Frog, on Dewey Hop, nominated me for an award!     YAY!!        Thanks, Fro, um Fri, um Fei, um Dew, um Jennifer!!        I got stuck there for a minute, on what to call you!!

https://deweyhop.wordpress.com/2017/01/27/lovely-blog-award/

slob, humor, one lovely blog award

Y’all know the rules, I’m sure.

But here they are, just in case you forgot.

 

The Rules for this award are as follows:

  1.  Thank the person who nominated you and leave a link to their blog     (How bout 2 for good measure???)
  2.  Post about the award. Share 7 facts about yourself.   (Check.   Hmmm, are there 7 things that I haven’t shared???     I feel like y’all have seen me spill ALL my guts already!!)
  3.  Nominate, AT MOST, 15 people.     (At MOST???     Drats!)
  4. Tell your nominees the good news!        (Will do, ASAP!!)

 

https://deweyhop.wordpress.com/2016/11/25/identity-theft/              This is where I got the idea for my post : Frank Fright.

  1. Since I’ve already had 4 weddings, if, and that’s a big IF, I ever get married again, I’m just gonna elope!      (At my last wedding, one of my aunts asked me how many weddings I was gonna have.    I answered, “As many men as I can keep finding to marry me, I guess.”)
  2. My right eye is half blue, and half brown.
  3. I’m ashamed to say this, but I wore white crew socks, with my capris, and Crocs today.  Mama nearly didn’t let me be seen by her side!
  4. I’ve had 5 different phones, in the last 12 months.     They just didn’t work out, so we broke up!      It was me!    Not them!    And the one I have now, doesn’t have a purple cover on it, so embarrassing!
  5. I re-read my posts all the time.    And I laugh at the brilliant writing. Every.Single.Time.
  6. I sniff babies’ heads.     It’s a compulsion.
  7. Yesterday, I mixed up some GF (YAY!) Brownie mix, and put it in the small crock pot.   Then, I plugged it in, and went my merry way.      3 hours later, the cake wasn’t done!  What??       I had plugged in the toaster….

slob, humor, facepalm

Yeah…..

That’s why I should not be allowed to try to cook!!

Ok, now the “at MOST” 15 people.      Ya know this part is always hard for me!    

#1 To only pick 15!          And #2  Counting to 15 is Math!!        (Or should those numbers be reversed??      See??    Math is HARD!!)

Ha!    I figured a way around the hard parts!!      Nominate my last 10 new followers, and let the editing program auto count for me!!          Yay for figuring that out!!

slob, humor, celebrate

       (Yes, I look exactly like that when I’m dancing.      Why ya laughing???)

Okay, now!     As soon as this publishes, I’ll be by to let y’all know I nominated ya!!

 

Wed. 8:33 am

Just informed everybody.   I can’t wait to see what secrets they spill about themselves!!

 

Stellar Stella

Stellar Stella was my first commenter ever!

Day One

What an awesome first post! You just put it out there right from the start.

 

We met on Dana’s A Slob Comes Clean.      And fell into “Like” right away!

We had so much in common!       (Well, not our ages, she’s still a young woman, and I’m a middle aged woman, but age is only a number!)

We both read ASCC, and comment!!

We are both struggling with housework.   

We are both determined to get our houses under control.

We both sew.

We both blog.


We both live in…    Oh wait! I live in Fl, and she lives in Australia.        So, that would be a difference (BIG DIFFERENCE) then, instead of a similarity, right?            Whatever!!       We both live in countries that start with “A”.         Um, Melinda???      USA doesn’t start with “A”.     Well, America does, so there, smarty pants!

We are both photographers.        Ahem, again, I must point out the fallacy of your statement.     You, my dear, are no photographer.      I take pix, ergo, I am a photographer.     I didn’t say I was a great one, like Stella, just that I AM one.        Ah!      Agreed then.

We both ordered Dana’s book, immediately!          

We both took pix of ourselves, peeking over the top of the book, without even knowing the other did it!      (I thought that was too funny!     Just something about that book, I guess!)

slob, humor, Stella  slob, humor, Melinda

(Yeah, hers is better than mine.      Can you tell she is a professional photog???)

Alrighty, then.    Sounds like y’all just might be long lost twins!      Anything else?


Stellar Stella was quoted in Dana’s book!!

“But the real reason I’m sharing this with you – well, other then that it just might be exactly what you need right now – is that I’m quoted in the book!!!!

In the chapter ‘The Truth About Habits” on page 35, under the heading ‘For Those Assuming The Dish Washer Thing Doesn’t Apply Because They Don’t Have Dishwashers” you will find a little quote from yours truly.”

 

Not that I was, or anything, just giving a shout out to my friend!!       (But I was quoted in my BBFFJ’s ebook!)

So, that statement should have been:  “We are both quoted in books.”        Yes, yes, you are so persnickety sometimes!


Okay, I guess that’s all for now.     But seriously, go check out Stella’s blog, Purfylle, and you’ll agree with me that she is stellar!!
