My Baby Fell Over

She's my little director. She directs the day when
I'm with her. She's all sunshine most of the time.
Today, her tummy hurt and she cried a little.

Lola fell over before I could catch her.

She loves Grandma anyway. Today she was saying, "ma

2007 BMW meets 2009 DEER

This was not "my" idea. I had no prior knowledge that we would meet so abruptly.
I was happily and I do mean "happily" driving along early that morning before
dawn enjoying myself because I had an extra hour of sleep the night before.
The sun was beginning to come up and the weather had turned cold. I was wearing
my warm camoflauge hunting jacket with sherpa pile lining. Quite a coincidence if I do say so. I don't think the deer could use that for an excuse. "I couldn't see
her. She was camoflauged!"
So what did I see to the right of me in the ditch? What a funny looking dog!
Oh no, look at how high it jumped! Oh, it's a deer jumping the fence. Cool.
Then I remembered there are always more than one. Oops, too late!
Here comes a truck with bright lights in my eyes. What was that thud? Oh my!
We met in the middle of the highway. It all happened so fast. I was driving with
my cruise control on exactly 65 mph. It was such smooth sailing. Until we met.
In that moment I felt remorse for the life of that deer. Then my mind switched to
my little beautiful car. I did not want to see the damage. It seemed such a small
thud. Maybe, just maybe I only lost a headlight. After all, my car dash control did
send me a signal that looked like a big headlight pointing downward. Maybe my
car's computer was telling me it's only a dream. You only have a headlight out.
I drove on twenty more miles to the next town before I stopped to survey the
damage. I guess I really should have stopped very soon after but I just couldn't.
I wasn't shaken by the ordeal at all for some strange reason. I didn't cry at all.
I kept thinking to myself this is only a car and not the most important thing in life.
I thought of the necessity to get to my daughter's apartment to watch my grand daughter that morning. All I could think of was, Lola. She's important. People are
what's important. I am not hurt and it's going to be all right.

I stopped in Skiatook and got out hoping to see very little damage. But alas, that
was not the case. From the front to the rear, the meeting with the deer left many
scars. I have been reminded many times throughout life that the rain falls on the
just and the unjust. We are not immune from bad things happening to us even though we are children of God. The Bible says in this world we will have tribulations. But we are reminded that Jesus said to be of good cheer because He has overcome the world. Ahhh, I'm not trying to preach, really. I just have this in me and it comes out. It is called peace. I honestly don't know how people can make it in life without peace. But you know the corny answer that beauty contestants always give when asked what they wish for, "world peace." I do so wish the world had peace.

"so may peace rain down from heaven like little pieces of the sky" "little keepers of the promise"

Share a day.

A day in the life of someone I don't know. Just found it interesting.

Ree Drummond-The Pioneer Woman Cookbook

I got to meet Ree at her cookbook signing in Tulsa on Friday.
She was a lot of fun to meet and listen to her talking to others as I
waited. I got to the store first and could have been first in line
but I decided to shop the little store and bought my grandbaby
some cute onesie's. One was a pink Cain's ballroom and the
other was a "I love (heart) Tulsa." I found a very cute purse that
was handmade. I will post a photo soon. It was made out of an
old linen tablecloth, very vintage. I know no one else will ever have
another one like it. I also bought a small Uglydoll. Big toe.
I'm about ten people back from the front of the line.
We all got to watch MM carry in boxes of books. He
didn't have his hat on and he looks even finer in real
life. Forgive me, but I'm much older than both of them!
I had pre-ordered one cookbook from Amazon but
I bought another to give as a gift.

And here I am posing with Ree. She was so very nice
and it was so fun to talk with her. I told her I would
like to go to the Pawhuska signing but I had tickets for
Dracula (the ballet). She said she would have liked to
gone to that. I also mentioned that I had never read a blog
before hers and that was when I started blogging two years
ago. I told her that I had met Swampy and of course she
knew her also. I had a very fine day! I left there and went
to Utica Square and shopped in Williams Sonoma. And
even better, I took home Asian Grilled Salmon from PF Chang's.
I honestly cannot get enough of it. I wish I could eat it every
