When You Go Through Deep Waters, I Will Be With You

When You Go Through Deep Waters, I Will Be With You

Good morning, Friends! Today we awoke to the news of so many more of our sweet friends, followers, and family members homes either about to flood, or having already been flooded.

We are okay here, but homes only a few roads down from us are flooded. We are praying that it does not reach us, but the water is still rising, and expected to do so for the next 12-18 hours. Our property has never flooded in the past, but with this record breaking flooding that we are currently experiencing in our area, it isn’t looking so good. Although, we are hoping the water will recede, and we will not flood.ย Continue reading

Record Flooding Here In Louisiana

For those of you who may not know, we are currently experiencing record flooding here in Louisiana. This weather has been some of the worst that we have seen in our parts in quite some time.

Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

After having a few weeks of warm weather, we woke up this morning to some very unexpected COLD, GLOOMY weather. Ever since then, I have been feeling kind of down, and unable to shake these WINTER BLUES. Up until today, I had high hopes that this cold weather was behind us, and have been excitedly looking forward to Spring. But today really knocked the wind right out of my sails.ย 

It comes as no surprise that most people feel down or depressed during the winter months, and it is actually a very common problem that affects a large number of people. It is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). If you think about it, most people are stuck indoors during the winter months trying to stay hidden from the wintery, gloomy, overcast weather outdoors. And we all know that when we are trapped indoors for long periods of time, we aren’t able to get much needed fresh air, sunlight, and social interaction. All of which are essential to a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Well, if you are like us….trying to fight the winter blues, we have a few solutions to help brighten your moon, and get you back on track!ย Here are some of our top tips for a better, and maybe even enjoyable winter for you and your entire family!Continue reading

They Aren’t Going Out In The Rain

This is soooo our little beagle, Gingerbread today. It has been raining here ALL evening, and I have had to FORCE her out of the door to go to the bathroom (WITHOUT a raincoat, may I add)

Our 3 year old keeps trying to CONVINCE me that we can simply teach her to use the potty like she did, but yeah…. I don’t think that is going to work. But if it does, you may just see us on the 5 o’clock news! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Yes! Yes! Yes! Between this GLOOMY weather that we have been having, and the days getting DARKER much SOONER, we NEED approximately 5 of these… EACH!

I told Patrick that I was getting ready for bed a few hours ago… That is, until he informed me that is was only 5:00 pm. I honestly thought it was AT LEAST 7:00! Yowza!
