This is an edited entry I wrote about a year ago of a typical day in my life.  It will show why I feature my blog, “Sugar and Spice and Most Things Nice.” It is a day in the life of an uncommonly blessed woman; however, she, herself, needs a little “editing” once in a while!

My day started with speech participation in local Toastmaster’s Int. Club.  It was titled “The Piggy Parable” it was about 650 words long and lasted eight minutes.  I thought it was pretty good, or maybe near terrific!  (I’ll blog it soon.)  Of course, I had to make my Wal-Mart  stop to get essentials (and a few non-essentials).  Do your non-essentials ever cost more than your essentials?  That’s the part that makes them rich!  Has anybody out there tried out tooth whitener?  Is it worth the time and effort?  Oh, back to my day.  I sent a birthday card to a very pretty girl.  Got a nice response.  Saw a picture on FB of my son.  He is a handsome dude.  Do you notice I get sidetracked a lot?  So, what’s next?  I got fed up with my poor online service and read (company) the riot act (in a Christian manner, of course); maybe it helped.  At least they agreed to lower the price.  Went to Lowes for garden hose, hand spade, and some of those circle thingies Sammy (my husband) needs to fix the faucets.  Grabbed for my purse. Wasn’t there?!  Flew back home hoping mightily that I had not left it on the car trunk.  Pulled in  the driveway.  There stood the most wonderful couple holding my purse and waiting for me to come claim it.  They saw it fall from my car top, checked my ID to see where the “idiot” lived.  I guess you know my reaction to that! Oh, thank God, and thank Doug and Debbie (I think that was their names).  Made a fantastic supper of ground chuck, mashed potatoes and gravy, black beans, and corn on the cob.  In my country that is supper, not “dinner.”  Watched O’Reilly and made some choice comments to Sammy about the VA mess, and about the Senator who charged that Benghazi was a racially motivated ploy.  Comments, comments.  Air conditioning is broken but my fix-it honey is working on it  An average day in the life on a very blessed woman!  (Oh, those circle thingies are called washers.)



About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
