First let me say that I am a born again christian and try to follow what JESUS would have me do ..I fail him daily, yet he picks me up and says try again my child !!!! knowing that he is closer to me than the air I breathe !that I am just dust designed by my Redeemer!! Remember when reading my blogs they are not wrote correct but from the heart ! I need lessons in writing correctly and making these interesting. I grew up in a small town and everyone knowing my family to come to a state with my husband that I knew almost no one I will say after 23 years its still hard ...I love to go back to KY as its where most of my family are I come from a large family of 9 me being the 9th ... Some of my interest are Genealogy , Landscaping, photography , love watching HGTV and now learning to Blog Again keep in mind all my posts are from the heart.. I love to laugh love being around good old friends and family I want enjoy each day as each day is a gift from the Master Creator !! my motto is I remain 29 forever !!!!! :)

Simple Life = Joy!!

The Simple Life

A life of no frills
Thats me now

I have found through the years
that as a young person
you seek to be like the
next young person
wanting this , that or whatever
the next one has ...
Yes, that was me in younger days
I know my parents dreaded to hear my next want
my dad even said he wished he would have named me
go , want, come and get me

Years later
I have joined the simple life 
not trying to keep up with 
" The Jone's"
as the saying goes  

I now find
I love the no frills ,
don't have to worry about
all the newest and latest
items out
I know enjoy
A fire in the fire pit
a hot dog on the grill
Porch sitting
Visiting the park
watching in the quietness
early morning walks
listening to the Birds give Praise to GOD
driving around looking at all the beauty
that surrounds me
Yelp that's me
now wearing a t shirt that is older than dirt
shoes that have green paint from
summer deck furniture painting
younger years I would only wear Ainger , Nine West, or Bass shoes was in my day
 now old comfy pants
not the name brand

Finding joy in the simple things !!!

May you too have a joy filled day


  1. Nice post Kay K. There IS joy in simplicity, isn't there?

    I still love my dolls, dollhouse, books, etc. but I'm content with what I have , not necessarily wanting more. Susan
