List things or events that changed your life? I have had several things that have been placed on my path thru out my life.
I was hit by a car when I was three months pregnant, Was a little bruised up from hitting the pavement but manage to survive it.
One time I was trying to pass semi and my grandmother was with me, she didn’t scold me, but I ended up going between the semi and car so I was actually going down the yellow line which was scary between a car and semi at the same time. It was nerve wracking. but I just had to push the metal on the pedal.
I haven’t really been in any other kind of danger that I can think of. I did have car accident but it wasn’t my fault, a drunk driver hit me. I had just dropped a girl off after attending church and I was heading back up route 29 when this car side swiped me. The ambulance came, I requested to go to Princeton hospital instead of the Peoria Hospital. My car was total, the dashboard came back 3 feet and I received scar on my knee that I still have to this day and pains me if I run into table leg with it. The only thing the drunk driver had was thumb hurt. I was in the hospital for 4 days and then had to return as I got blood poising. Then I was laid up at home could not sleep in our bed as it was too high off the ground so slept in the living room on sofa bed until I could get around better.
Complete this sentence: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s… a hot air balloon. I met fellow that loved hot air balloons and he was from Iowa. Every summer there is display of Hot Air Balloons that comes to Indianola, Warren County, Iowa. There is Facebook page you can join here is link to it: https://www.facebook.com/Nationalballoonclassic/ and then their is link to the website for more information: https://www.nationalballoonclassic.com/ So if you need a family outing to go to they have one planned from July 27, 2018 to August 4, 2018. I know they have craft show that is usually going on so there is something for everyone. They offer rides on balloons too.
My first encounter with hot balloons was when I would visit my Aunt and Uncle. They lived in Chester County, Pennsylvania out in the country. When I was outside I could hear the pumping of the air and would wait to see what it was and it would a hot air balloon going over their house. I always thought it was such a beautiful site. The next time I have experience with this was I was driving home and going thru Peoria Illinois and could see one up in the air off of route 40. Memories flooded back in as I watched while I was driving and wondering where they had come from and where they were going.
What genre of music do you like? Sometimes I like music that you movie plays in the background such as August Rush, Nut Cracker, Lord of the Rings, Dr. Zhivago etc. Other times I like one called “Putin on the Ritz by Fred Astaire did. I didn’t actually see him do this, but I had cousin that had a 45 record and fell in love with the music she shared with us. Depending what mood I am in I like jazz, rock n roll, classical, blues, country.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?
I went from size 18 to size 16 clothes which was pretty exciting. All the tender mercies that Heaven Father extends towards me. I got some painting done on book case I have been working on. We’re trying to downsize so looking at what we are parting with that we don’t realllllly need. That’s all folks!
