I DID IT!!


Well, I did it!!

They called later in the day and said the clouds had lifted and we could go skydiving if we wanted.

So, Tiff and I headed out to Skiatook - a town about 20 minutes from Tulsa.


We had to go thru an orientation and we suited up. 


Geared up and ready to fly.


I was a little shocked at how small the plane was.



We flew tandum - with an instructor on our back.  It took us 20 minutes to get to 10,000 feet and 6 minutes to dive.  I didn't like the free fall out of the plane at all.  But, once the parachute opened, it was fantastic.  I lost my glasses somewhere along the way.



Tiff chose to wear a jump suit.  I didn't cause I had on jeans.

It's 30 degrees cooler at 10,000 feet.  But the temp outside was 80 so it wasn't bad at all.


We got certificates and applause! 

The crew at Skydive Airtight were fabulous.  They were so good at making you feel as comfortable as you possibly could and making sure you understood everything.  The divers had cameras on their wrist bands and took pictures all the way - some 400.


So, I marked one more thing off of my Bucket List.  I am glad I did it and it was very exciting but

I WILL NEVER DO IT AGAIN!!

When I get the video I will share with you.

Enjoy your weekend.

Enjoying the Beauty While I Can


My yard is abloom (is that a word?) with everything popping up out of the ground.  Yesterday was 85 degrees and the Saturday morning temp is suppose to be 25 degrees.  YIPES!  What are these plants suppose to think?

Anyway, went out and took a few photos of what's going on in my yard...














the Redbud tree is just beginning to bud out.



So hopefully, the freeze won't kill everything.


Won the cutest tote bag from Kris @ Junk Chic Cottage.  Is is so SPRINGY!  Thanks Kris.


Put a pretty blue wreath on the front porch.


This last week I had a new sidewalk poured.  It is so nice.  The old one was cracked and uneven and was really a danger to everyone so, I replaced it.



Don't think I ever told you all the story behind my Toyota Rav 4.  

The day before John passed away, we had been out looking at cars.  We had decided this was the one we wanted.

Several weeks after John passed, I was sorting out some things and in his nightstand by his bed was an envelope.  It said "Judy - for your car".  I opened it and there was cash to pay for the car.  I, of course, cried and never knew how long it had been there.

I was so blessed to have John for so many years and he always took such good care of me.  He still to this day provides for me in amazing ways.  I miss him so.  But, I am so blessed and thankful for the time I did have with him.  He was a wonderful Christian man.

Now on to happier things...


Bella is wanting to try out for the Cadbury Egg Bunny.  Her only problem is she can't leave the eggs alone.  Of course, I know chocolate is very dangerous for dogs and don't let her have it.  But the smell drives her crazy.

Enjoy the weekend.
