Birthday Hair and Hovering Helicopters

So I did a thing, a thing I have wanted to do since I was 16 years old. I actually did it once when I was 16, my mother took one look at me and said “that’s really pretty, better be out by church tomorrow.”

I cancelled my plans and washed, rinsed, repeated all night long. But the purple was out of my hair by church the next day.

Yes, I had my hair dyed purple for my upcoming 57th year on this planet. My hair stylist, Sarah, is completely brilliant and it looks beautiful. I will post pictures here at the end.

I am completely exhausted by the complete horridenousness (I know that is not a real word) of the new administration here in our country. The things that are happening in just 10 short days, 10’s of thousands of jobs lost, drug prices skyrocketing and so much more.

If no one sees this, they are purposely putting on blinders and are part of the problem.

On that note, I feel something bigger is happening here, in our country and the world at large. I feel massive spiritual warfare going on, and also military, here, it’s weird.

Military helicopters are flying way more than usual here in my part of the world. They are flying often and low, last night my whole house was shaking, and this is not the first time. 

Elizabeth Anne noted an abundance of military helicopters flying low and often over her place as well. 

How do we know they are military helicopters? Well that is hard to miss, seriously, if you have never seen one then you don’t know. If you have seen one, then you know. They are not unusual here in Texas, but the amount and how low they are flying is unusual.

If anyone has any answers please send me a message, you can leave it here or send it privately to angie@angieworld.com.

Speaking of Elizabeth Anne, her birthday is in two short days and I know you are all looking forward to my annual message to her.

I’ll save it for then, oh and I am also having a surprise delivered to her house on that day. I hope she likes it.

I won’t keep you all, I know you are very busy on this beautiful overcast Saturday.

As promised, here is my hair: 

Potassium Nuclei and Purple Pancakes

The best part of this weekend was getting to spend it with Tess. My son and his wife were sick so he offered me his weekend.

I picked Tess up from school on Friday, after she got in the car she proceeded to tell me that she had a project due on Monday.

A science project, she had to create the nuclei of potassium. So off to the Dollar Tree, Target and Michael’s for supplies.

On Saturday we started working on it, we had a different idea, went to Walmart and got more supplies.

It all turned out great, in the middle of creating the creation, she realizes the project isn’t due for two weeks. We both laughed and I told her she would be happy that she did her work in advance.

That’s the way life is, if we do our work in advance it simplifies things. The reality of life is as humans we tend to procrastinate and make things harder on ourselves.

I don’t really know why human nature is that way, I tend to procrastinate, especially if it is a task I don’t like doing.

We also had purple pancakes, those were really good. I’m not the best cook but pancakes are one of the things I am really good at making.

I hope you have a great week, tomorrow I am getting my hair done, in purple.

A Break is Needed

I’m taking a break, a break from all politics, because in 48 simple hours Joe Biden has done a horrible job. 

I’ll list a few highlights and you can simply google it for yourself. 

Bagdag Terrorist Attack

Ready to deploy soldiers to Middle East

Re-Joins the WHO which failed to warn U.S. on pandemic

Re-Joins the Paris Accord; U.S. pays highest fees

Re-Joins the TPP massive job loss to China

Men with wigs can enter girls restrooms, or they don’t even need a wig, they can just say they feel like a woman.

Men with wigs can compete in women sports, or without a wig, they just need to say they feel like a woman.

We’ll be charged a hefty fine for not having health insurance

Revokes Keystone pipeline, 57,000 jobs lost

Corporate taxes jump from 21 % to 28.8%

Income tax and payroll taxes from 37% to 57%

Small business taxes from 29.6% to 39.6%

Capital Gains & Dividend taxes from 23.8% to 43.4%

Not to mention our National Guard regulated to a cold, unheated parking garage with one bathroom to sleep in. 

Oh and we will not talk about the higher price on insulin and epinephrine. 

It’s too much and I need a break, so this weekend I am spending the whole weekend with my granddaughter.

My oldest son and his wife both have covid and I was offered Tess.

I readily agreed, we have been working on her science project, we had to go to three different stores, then scrapped that plan and went a different route, which resulted in us going to a different store. So 4 stores later we are in the middle of it. We have to allow some things to dry so I came in here for a quick post.

Spending time with a 13 year old will really take you back, we watched the current three episodes of Wandavision then The Empire Strikes Back. 

She definitely takes after me in the nerd, geek genetics. Is being a nerd/geek genetic? I don’t know, my mom and dad were not sci-fi nerds, but they both read a lot. I was encouraged to read a lot, I have a great love of reading. 

It could have been when I discovered the Illyad in the 5th grade, no, I loved Star Trek way before then. Also I loved watching all of the old B movies, you know the ones, the attack of the killer tomatoes, those. And all of the scary movies, with Dracula, the Mummy, Frankenstein’s monster, the wolf man and the creature from the black lagoon. 

I’ll leave you on that thought, is the nerd/geek thing genetic or learned? 

As usual, you can comment, question or critique here or email me at angie@angieworld.com.

The Day America Was Sold to the Highest Bidder

Father forgive them for they know not what they do, that is what I would like to say. But it’s a lie, they knew exactly what they were doing. We now have an illegitimate president in America’s house. 

There was a mountain of voter fraud evidence and everyone turned a blind eye. Anyone who saw those videos of suitcases of ballots being brought out after kicking poll watchers out, well you cannot deny it. But they are, so now what will happen.

Has God forsaken us as a country? Only time will tell. The righteous cry out to Him, begging for mercy, begging Him to send His army of Angels to fight for us. To protect us, to protect our children. 

The illegitimate one has already said he will roll back any and all abortion legislation. Giving money to an organization founded by racist, eugenist Margaret Sanger.

They are busy celebrating having someone in office that will more than likely sell us all to the highest bidder.

Protect your children, watch them closer than ever, I highly doubt the illegitimate one will give funding to finding missing children. 

This is one of the saddest days in American history, we had a stolen election and no one cared. The ones that do care, well, it is promised we’ll be silenced. They have already said they want to take our children and put them in re-education camps.

The videos are online of them saying just that, do your research. 

That vaccine, for a man made virus in China, well it has aborted fetal tissue in it. It is killing people world wide, do your research, get off of CNN and all of the others. Look at what it is doing in Norway. Thirty-three people dead from the vaccine, they have halted giving it out. Australia has also stopped giving it out due to deaths associated with it.

If you give it to your children there is a possibility of sterilization.

Stay vigilant, stay awake, stay focused in the Word, I still have faith.

I still have faith God will deliver us, just as He delivered His people from Egypt. 

I am a proud conservative woman, God, family, country. I believe in the 2nd Amendment, I believe in manifest destiny and I am really happy to be living in Texas.

God will reside in my household and in my life, it is all I can do for now.

Voting in the future, well, it seems it doesn’t matter, they are going to put who they want in office. And no one seems to care.

I’ll keep writing, I’ll keep my voice loud and strong, I was raised on a steady diet of patriotism after all. My family has been here since 1636, with another branch coming in 1774. 

We have fought for this country, we helped shape this country and we will continue to fight for this country. 

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad

Well today is a great day in my family. It is my mom and dad’s wedding anniversary. They were married January 13, 1934, which started their amazing journey together.

I know I talk about them a lot, but they very literally saved my entire life. I love them so much and want the world to know how amazing they actually were.

Their love was the real deal, the hand holding, stolen kisses, mutual respect, the kind of relationship that comes when you put God first in your marriage.

They also had a profound sense of humor about life. Life is filled with all kinds of trials and tribulations. Few people will ever experience the kind of challenges my parents faced. They grew up and were married during the worst depression this country has ever seen. They also survived Oklahoma’s dust bowl.

It did not harden them, it did not defeat them, it strengthened them and allowed them to see humor in hard times.

It taught them to rely on God and taking care of each other starts at the neighbor level. They were pros at quietly taking care of people in need.

Especially an unruly 12 year old that no one else wanted. I feel unbelievably fortunate and blessed that I got to witness and learn from those two amazing humans.

So today, on what is a great day for my family, Happy Anniversary mom and dad. I love you beyond belief.

Loyalty and Love of Country

I thought I could be done, but I find I cannot, as a whole anyone who voted for President Donald J. Trump is being vilified and called horrible names. On Facebook, a friend, who didn’t bother to say anything about the cities burning around the country this summer, posted about the Capitol. Then one of her friends said that all Trump supporters were crazy and out of control. She answered IKR, which means I know right. 

We have been friends since we were 13 years old, so I sent her a text message and asked her if she thought that of me. She said no of course not, but here we are, I’m a person that voted for our President twice.

I have laid out very clearly why I voted for him, but no one wants to listen to reason. All they can do is parrot CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, ABC and CBS News. All of the alphabet soup of them. Orange man bad.

Nancy Pelosi wants to arrest anyone who supported him, which is over 75 million Americans. What will they do with us? Good question, will it be like concentration camps or the camps we kept Americans of Japanese descent during WWII? Which was shameful as well.

I am not done praying, God has not finished with this yet, and yes I believe God’s hand is in all of this. It will always be His timing and not ours, even if we feel the full weight of the possibilities of corrupt politicians taking full control of our country. I still have faith that God will persevere, good over evil, I believe He has used this to open our eyes that it is not just the Democrats, it is Republicans as well.

Evilness is the law of the land right now, they believe they have prevailed and will get sloppy because no one wants to be the one that says STOP.

I, for one, was raised differently, I was raised on a steady diet of patriotism, of pride in our Country and my ancestors roll in all of it. I will continue to fight, even if it is just words on the internet.

I will continue to stand for what is right, what is righteous, for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

I did not grow up in a privileged neighborhood, I grew up incredibly poor. It is not something I talk about, ever, it is something I would very much like to forget. But here’s the thing, the areas that were being rioted, looted and burned to the ground, well, that is very much like the neighborhood I grew up in. At least until I was 12, then I was adopted by my Great Aunt and Uncle. Then it was a middle class life for me. 

I know what it is like to have to fight for everything I have, when I got a divorce I was put right back into the poverty level. 

I worked three jobs and went to school full time to try and make a life for my three children. Then a friend made an opportunity with a major telecommunications corporation for me. I got a job that took the place of all three jobs I was working, I didn’t finish college because my three children needed me to be with them in the evenings and weekends.

I don’t regret that at all, everything was worth seeing my children grow up and succeed. They remain my pride and joy, everything was for them and to an extent continues to be. I like to be available for my granddaughter now, and for my children if they need anything for me. God has given us so much, it is now the time for me to stand up for Him and for our country that gave me all of the opportunities. 

This country owes a debt of gratitude to God, for everything, now is the time for us to recognize that and put Him first in our lives.

I’ll continue to stand up for Him and for my country, God, family, country, those are the things that are important to me.

Oh and for my China readers, please let me know who you are. I get a lot of hits from you guys and I don’t know why. Please enlighten me.

Patriotism and Disgust

I’ve said very little about what is going on in our country, my beloved country. A country my family has had an integral part of creating, starting in 1635 when one of my ancestors sought freedom from persecution due to their religion.

It is becoming increasingly obvious that being persecuted for ones religion is going to become the norm IF Biden takes office on January 20th. 

Yesterday at the capitol building that was not who patriots are, we are above that. It is now coming out, not in mainstream media of course, that the instigators were not patriots but paid Antifa agitators.

But no one seems to care, they are more intent on which pronoun to use or defending Antifa and BLM from the riots this past year. You know, the ones that destroyed black communities and small business owners all over the country. 

If you are not willing to condemn them, then you will not stand for anything, at all.

The more I see the more disgusted I am, we are becoming a country that loves lawlessness, that disrespects the elderly, that creates chaos and throws monumental fits when they don’t get their way.

Any so called Christian that voted for the party of abortion up to birth, marxism, persecution of Christians, well, you need to have a conversation with our Lord and Savior.

Representative Emanuel Cleaver, democrat from MO, invoked a false god in his prayer to the the 117th congress. And he ended it with Amen and Awoman, this is a man that claims to be a Christian. We should all be outraged by him invoking the monotheistic god Brahma. Which is a Hindu deity, not Jesus, man oh man, I do not want to be him on judgement day, he has a lot to answer for.

I would like to think this is atypical but it is not, it is a travesty, a sham and blasphemy.

God help every single person who thinks this is ok, as for me and my house, we will worship the one true God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. 

Oh and whoever in China that is reading this, because I can see where the hits are coming from, I pray you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.

Salem Witch Trials and a Clean Closet

You know what I hate more than anything, well, almost anything, when someone says new year new me. Stop doing that, all of you jinxed 2020. 

I started this year like I have started every year of my life, alone, oh wait, last year was the exception due to Alex and Elicia’s wedding. 

I decided I would clean my closet and organize it, you have to know, I have an addiction. Several really, one is shoes and boots, the other is clothes. I love shopping for both, my closet was about to explode. 

I decided if I have not worn something in the past two years I was throwing it out. I now have two giant black trash bags ready for charity. One giant black trash bag to throw away and a box ready to go to my bestie. It is filled with sundresses, she loves those and I have ton that still has the tags on them. I know I am not going to wear them, the way things are looking I will still be living in workout clothes and pajamas this coming summer.

Not to worry, my closet is still packed with clothing, I got rid of none of my evening wear, which I love, nor my costumes. But those are all in a different closet, I keep those separate from the rest. 

One would think I would be embarrassed by all of this, I am not, I love my shopping and I love shoes, boots and clothes. 

I now have to find a charity that picks up the goods, I have to be honest, if I am left to my own devices I will drive around with that stuff in my car for weeks. 

I also spent New Years with Bridgerton, a worthy way to spend my time. It was completely worth every minute spent watching it, I will probably watch it again.

It is based on a series of books, I am going to try and find the books so I can see what happens to these characters.

I found out the most interesting thing ever, I discovered I am related to Elizabeth Howe, who is that you asked, I am so glad you did.

She was accused of being a witch in Salem, Massachusetts, she was found guilty and hanged in 1692. She was my 8th great aunt. I don’t know which one of her siblings is my direct line, but I will figure it out.

But this explains so much, like why I loved Sabrina the Teenage Witch, why as a child I was fascinated with Samantha Stevens. Why I read everything I could get my hands on about the Salem witch trials. I am definitely going to plan a trip to go there, I’ve always wanted to now I have added incentive. 

I have such a connection with this country, going all the way back to the 1600’s. I love this country and I am a proud American. God Bless America and God Bless our President!

2021 and all that Entails

2020 is over, 2021 has begun and with it renewed hope that all will be well with our country. It has begun, I see the signs and on the 6th of January it will culminate. I wish I could be in Washington D.C. to see it all unfold. I will be watching from all of my sources. I follow a lot of people that are going to be there. I feel their excitement and I will be praying for them.

Christmas has come and gone, I hope everyone liked their gifts, with some it’s hard to tell if they liked their gifts. I guess I would hear long and loud if they did not, so perhaps I should take silence as acceptance.

Cooking and cleaning and wrapping takes a lot of energy and well to be honest I am not getting any younger. I still love doing it for my family, I just know there will come a day where they will all have to contribute to the meal. But not this year, maybe next or the next, or when I am ready to relinquish control.

The new year always brings an onslaught of things people are going to change. I have a habit of posting what I will not change, which is another thing I will not change. So here is my list of things I will not be changing in 2021:

1.) my love of all things sci-fi, superhero, action movies.

2.) my love of words, all words, written words, fantastically said words, delicious words. Bridgerton on Netflix is a wonderful example of this. Which reminds me, I must see if that is a book.

3.) my love of my country, I love the fact that I am an American, I love the fact my family fought for the very formation of this country in 1774. I am proud to be an American.

4.) my righteous indignation of all of the wrong that is happening in this country. The one that my ancestors fought so hard for. I am proud that my children are Americans and love this country.

5.) my love of my animals, I am not changing that. I even added to my menagerie.

6.) last but should have been first, my love of Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I am not backing down from my faith and everything that is happening in the world makes me cling harder to Him.

I pray for this country and this world, that peoples eye will be opened to the evil that is on full display. I have faith that God will win in the end and all will be well in our world.

I lost my brother this year, that is a loss I mourn, but I also rejoice knowing with full confidence I will see him in our afterlife in heaven. 

So happy 2021 to everyone, please go out and make it your best year yet on this earth.
