Organic Is GOOD STUFF! :)
Mood:  hungry
Now Playing: Day 3043-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

 

You BET I'm going to plug more super tasty oh-so-good organic wholesome treats! 

These little bite-size chocolate morsels are not only organic... but are oh-so-good for the tummy...

YUMMY!!

We are finally enjoying some rain-free weather here in the country while finishing up the little details that make a great repairing, repainting living room project PERFECTO... COMPLETE!

And of course why not have a few good belly laughs while we're at it! Hehehehehehehe! 

I am back with hospital oncology later this week in order to stay at least half a foot ahead of an ongoing medical battle... cancer. I really don't want to know how much larger the tumors have grown since last rescan over 4 months ago... however... sometimes you just have to suck it up buttercup! 

At least for now we can enjoy the rest of this absolutely beautiful, glorious, wonderful

supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Monday... right here in the country~

CHANGE... Begins With YOU!
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: Day 3042-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

 

We promise a super cute and quite funny Podcast~Blogcast video soon to follow... but as today's title clearly states...

"Our Crazy Little Life"

Even crazy means receiving ridiculous things that I saw come across the mail this morning.

  I can only hope that this blog and podcast changes the way one person or possibly many people treat anyone or any family members that are struggling or battling medical conditions in this world. Making fun of... poking light of and belittling anyone who may be sick or battling any type of medical condition is not only disturbing... but it's not godly by any means.

True change begins with the person in the mirror in order to make the Next Generation better, stronger and with a whole lot more heart

Another DNA Match! :)
Mood:  surprised
Now Playing: Day 3040-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

 

2 years later after taking my Christmas gift DNA test in hopes of connecting with long lost family...

ANOTHER MATCH!

I sure wasn't expecting the emails that came across the computer today... but what a very pleasant surprise to connect with a few more second cousins as my family tree continues to sprout more roots so-to-speak. I never knew much about my dad's side of the family nor was ever told much about them throughout my lifetime. So it sure was a very pleasant surprise to be contacted by another distant cousin as well as a few others within the family.

As you can tell by today's Podcast~Blogcast video... I really wasn't too sure about the website: ancestry.com... but needless to say it has so far been pretty darn surprisingly accurate when it comes to further connecting your DNA.

Enjoy the video and look forward to sharing more of my connections very soon!

The more family the merrier...

HAPPY DANCE~

Pierre's House Of Brow ••~••
Mood:  surprised
Now Playing: Day 3039-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

 

It sure feels like Monday with these darn BLAHS. Mother Nature has this weather officially all the heck over the place from running the heat to now running the a/c in the house 

Pffffff...

I go from no sleep to now just wanting to do nothing but sleep. Such as life... our "Crazy Little Life." 

As far as getting a HUGE jump start on what feels like a zillion more repairing, repainting, redecorating projects in and out of the house... Eric has already gotten a huge start! YAYYYY!! I do what I can depending on what the day brings me... but does it ever feel oh-so-good to now be able to laugh without feeling so out of breath. As far as other physical activities that I used to be able to enjoy? Well... for right now... not so promising. 

At the end of the day... there is always laughter to keep things light-hearted because life is far too short not to find a reason to wear a s-m-i-l-e!

Enjoy this absolutely hilarious video found on our Podcast~Blogcast at the following link below... brought to you by Pierre's House Of Brow ••~••

How Does Mary's Garden Grow?..
Mood:  surprised
Now Playing: Day 3038-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

 

Just because... it reached 82 degrees today here in the country...

Looks like Mary's garden is doing quite well so early in the season with our first official spring bloom!

B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L

It's going to be a very busy spring and summer as we make our way outdoors to quite a few projects that will need our dire attention. That includes trying to find this 'sinkhole' flagged to us by a neighbor that was 'supposed' to be filled by the prior owners... hmmmmm... we will see about this additional little lemon gem!

I am scheduled to see my oncologist tomorrow so they can re-evaluate everything including the ovarian tumors. That includes my cardiologist who has been flagged by the company that is monitoring my heart after experiencing quite a few episodes over the past 24-hours. At least this could possible be good news so they can continue on the path of getting me stable as possible. It's actually been nice to just step outdoors and enjoy a bit of this super nice weather... rain-free... but still I must be careful not to overstep my limits. We aren't so sure about biking this year along the many trails. But at least I was able to take in a little walk this evening. Needless to say I have a long ways to go just yet...

Stay tuned for the release of Pierre's House Of Brow 2018 summer trends of the season on our Podcast~Blogcast website located at the link below!

1... 2... 3... In Need Of Z's...
Mood:  spacey
Now Playing: Day 3037-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

 

Here we are... almost 48-hours with the inability to actually be able to sleep... any type of decent sleep.

Between Eric making Walmart runs in attempt to find some sort of over the counter remedy and my snazzy heart monitor sending alerts from the kind folks who are watching over my beats per minute... lack of sleep. I am beyond exhausted and it's starting to catch up with me.

If one was smart.. they would just head up to the emergency room for some assistance to be pleasantly knocked out to catch some zzzzz's. But instead... I am trying my best to see if I can remedy my own lack of sleep without hospital assistance. It has not been an easy nor very successful feat so far by any means. Not when your entire body is so out of whack and that's putting it lightly.

So... after a few calls to my specialists who are managing my care at the current moment. They have me scheduled at their office to see them Thursday morning or earlier if I cannot finally get some sleep. 

In the meantime... although today's podcast~blogcast video might not be so funny... at least I'll be able to let you know which Sleepytime tea will hopefully work for me.

Signed,

In NEED of zzzz's~

A SUPER Day Calls For A SUPER Ice Cream! ;)
Mood:  cheeky
Now Playing: Day 3036-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining
 

LORDIE! I've never laughed so hard creating today's video podcast~blogcast...

20180430_001703_resized.jpg

HAHAHAHAHA!

Folks you just can't make stuff up like this ice cream we literally found at our local Walmart. We both had to do a double take... then I took one look at Eric and he knew what was next as it literally made for one heck of a hilarious video! Even a funnier photo opportunity as Eric had no choice in the matter... hehehehehehe!

I have never seen a Walmart store like here in the country that carries so many test market products. Anything and everything that I believe the Walmart department buyers can get ahold of seems to make their way to this Indiana Walmart location. I have never seen so many different varieties of seasonings, salad dressings, BBQ sauces, ice cream, potato chips, cereal, donuts, baked goods and everything else that isn't good for you. 

They say that food tastes better in the country... and it most definitely makes for far bigger waist lines too! 

If you are a bit on the skinny side... as we both must admit... not saying that makes you the healthiest because that's far from the truth. But at least we now know where to live if you want to gain a few pounds or 2 or 10 or 20. Just hop on over the state line to Indiana and visit Walmart here in the country!

You know... a super day does call for a super ice cream...

A Million Thoughts Running Through My Mind=DANGEROUS!
Mood:  d'oh
Now Playing: Day 3035-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining

 

You know what happens when you have way too many thoughts running through your mind? You realize that the load of wash that you just placed in the washing machine... a very large load of wash that is getting ready to start the first cycle has your $6,000+ 24-hour heart monitor piece of equipment in it.

I may not have passed a stress test running on the treadmill at the hospital in front of my cardiologist.... more like... in need of my cardiologists assistance to get off the treadmill. But needless to say I sure the hell wasted no time getting as quickly as I could to that running washing machine after I realized holy **** did I drop that in the washing machine?!!!Surprised!?!!!

I don't know how... and I definitely don't know why I was able to successfully retrieve the equipment out of the washing machine that was already beginning the first cycle full to capacity of water and laundry detergent. Not one single drop of water was on that piece of equipment.

Yeah... I am about as dumbUndecidedfounded as you are reading this!

Needless to say... having a million things on your mind can be a dangerous thing. It can also possibly be one hell of a very expensive thing.

The rest of the day I decided that I better just take it easy... even deciding to look a little bit more like myself instead of Casper the Friendly Ghost for the camera... sharing a smile which is a heck of a lot better than the frown I could have had with an expensive damaged piece of equipment on my hands.

*CLAPPING*

Enjoy this cute little video and have yourself a super fabulous Carefree Cool Sunday...
