Friday’s Fave Five ~ The Happiest Place on Earth…

FRIDAY!! This week got away from me. Thank you Susanne for encouraging us with this weekly exercise of “looking back” and being thankful for our favorites from the past week. Click on over to Living to Tell the Story to join in…

 

1. So we made it safe and a little bit crazy back to Southern California on Sunday. My favorite part of our 18 hour trip in the car was listening to Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix on cds. There are 23 cds and we only got up to #15. Listening to books on cd really helps me endure the boredom of road travel especially through Central California.

2. Came home to a nice clean condo which quickly had every inch of floor space filled with inflatable beds because my daughter and her boyfriend made the trip with us and are staying here for a week.

3. On Wednesday I met up with 10 family members to enjoy the day at Disneyland. My sister Lana G! treated me royally that day paying for my ticket and all my food.

4. Spending time with my brother Leonard, his wife Mandy and my niece Hope. We get to see them once or twice a year since they live in Texas.

5. Watching Miss Hope (my niece) and Jackson (my grand nephew) interact with each other. Miss Hope really enjoys having Jack in her sights. She is pointing out his nose for him in the collage.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

Blue Monday ~ Disneyland!

Welcome to Blue Monday. Smiling Sally is our hostess for this weekly event so click on over to see more Blue or to join in with your blue.

My Blue photos were all taken at Disneyland Anaheim last Wednesday. There really was a lot of blue around the park.

I really enjoyed seeing this pretty blue.

So anyone out there up for taking my quiz on identifying these photos and where you’ll find them at Disneyland? Just leave your answers in the comments :0)

Happy Blue Monday everyone!

Travelling South Along the Coast…

Ellen b. is headed down the coast to Laguna Beach today. I hope to explore some beaches and anything else that strikes my fancy.

 

Then 20 of us are meeting at this restaurant for dinner for my niece Debbee’s birthday…

I’m crashing at my sister’s house in Huntington Beach for the night because on Wednesday some of us are meeting at…

 

The Happiest Place on Earth.

All regular blogging will resume (Lord Willing) later in the week…

Blessings to you all…

International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Shiver me timbers! I almost forgot it’s talk like a pirate day Mateys! Here are a few of my favorite pirates and the words to that Yo Ho Song on that ride at Disneyland, Pirates of the Caribbean…

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.
We pillage plunder, we rifle and loot.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We kidnap and ravage and don’t give a hoot.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.
We extort and pilfer, we filch and sack.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Maraud and embezzle and even highjack.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.
We kindle and char and in flame and ignite.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We burn up the city, we’re really a fright.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

We’re rascals and scoundrels, we’re villians and knaves.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We’re devils and black sheep, we’re really bad eggs.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

We’re beggars and blighters and ne’er do-well cads,
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Aye, but we’re loved by our mommies and dads,
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.

Ha! Sounds kind of like a politician’s life to me…

And here is what my daughter carries her lunch to work in…

Now I should go Scrub the Deck!

Pink Saturday ~ Disneyland

Note!! I’ve had a lot of trouble getting into blogger comment windows today. I don’t know what the problem is (if it’s on my end or blogger’s end) I’ve tried to comment on several Pink Saturdays and haven’t been able to. Quite Frustrating. Have a great weekend y’all!

Welcome to my Pink Saturday Post from Disneyland in Anaheim, California!

Pink on the Castle

 

Pink blossoming trees, Pink flowers, Pink on the Fairy Godmother, and Pink umbrellas at the Plaza Inn.

And my favorite splashes of Pink the Tea Cups and the Lanterns.

For more Pink Saturday visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

WFW ~ Jonah 2:1-2

 

Jonah 2: 1-2 ~ “From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. He said: “In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. From the depths of the grave I called for help, and you listened to my cry.”

For more Word Filled Wednesday visit Amydeanne.

Update: To answer several of your inquiries this photo was taken at Disneyland, Anaheim. It is part of the Pinocchio Ride in Fantasyland.

Ruby Tuesday

 

I went to the “Happiest Place on Earth” last Wednesday and these are some of the Ruby shots I took while I was there.

Clarification: For those of you that don’t know, Disneyland in Anaheim, California, is the “happiest place on earth”.

For more Ruby Tuesday visit Mary at The Work of the Poet.

God Holds the Future in His Hands ~ Hymn

 

God Holds the Future in His Hands

Dread not the things that are ahead,
The burdens great, the sinking sands,
The thorns that o’er the path are spread,
God holds the future in His hands.

Refrain

God holds the future in His hands
And every heart He understands.
On Him depend,
He is your Friend,
He holds the future in His hands.

We know not what tomorrow hides,
Of sun or storm or good or ill;
We only know His dear hand guides,
And He will be our Father still.

Refrain

His hand created earth and sky,
The zephyrs and the storms that rage,
And years to come and years gone by
To Him are but an open page.

Refrain

Live close to Him and trust His love,
Assured that while on earth we roam,
Whate’er may come, He bends above
To guide His children safely home.

Refrain

Words by James Rowe, 1922.

Zephyrs are west winds in case you were wondering…

Friday’s Fave Five

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story is hosting a new Friday meme called Friday’s Fave Five. You just have to post 5 favorite things from this past week and link back to her blog. She’ll have a Mr. Linky so you can join in easily. Here are my Favorites from this past week.

1. Having our daughter visit us with her boyfriend. They arrived at the Long Beach Airport on Monday morning and I picked them up and we did some sight seeing on the way home.

2. Meeting up with my walking buddy and having a walk in Old Towne Camarillo with some Antique shopping and thrift shopping along the way.

3. Going to Disneyland and meeting up with family for some fun.

4. Eating out with family. This photo is from Naples Ristorante in Downtown Disney where 8 of our extended family met up to eat and enjoy each other around food again.

5. Last favorite was being able to catch several Olympic Soccer Games and especially the Gold Medal Win by the U.S. Women’s Team. Hope Solo was amazing in goal! Well done ladies!!

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site and have replaced my photos with black and grey boxes of ugliness. I’m slowly deleting those boxes from my blog and trying to update so many posts, very frustrating.
