Sam Travis lives in a Civil War era farmhouse in Gettysburg, PA, where he awakens one morning to find an old journal with an entry by a Union soldier, Lt. Whiting…written in Sam’s own handwriting. When this happens several more times, both at night and during waking “trances,” Sam begins to question his own sanity while becoming obsessed with Lt. Whiting and his bone-chilling journal entries. As the entries begin to mimic Sam’s own life, he is drawn into an evil plot that could cost many lives, including his own.

Can the unconditional love of Sam’s daughter, Eva, break through his hardened heart before a killer on the loose catches up with them and Sam’s past spurs him to do the unthinkable?

I’m making awesome progress on the fencing project. We finished the second stretch of fence yesterday. Only one more to do, and it’s a short stretch. It is a tangled up mess though, so it’s not going to be a walk in the park, but we’ll manage. Hopefully I can get it done within the next week or so, and then I’ll be completely done!!!

Today I am taking the day off from the fencing project so that I can get my work done here at home, along with some other business that needs taken care of as well.

RZR Power Steering

Posted by Vicki on May 28, 2011

I was thinking the other day that it would be nice if the tree loppers or chainsaws came equiped with rzr power steering. Kind of silly I realize, but I might not be afraid to use a chainsaw if it had power steering, and loppers would be immensely easier to use if they had power steering. *LOL* However I realize I wouldn’t be getting near as much exercise and muscle building if they really did have power steering.

Best Muscle Building Supplement

Posted by Vicki on May 28, 2011

I had to laugh when I ran across something that said ” the best muscle building supplement“. I’ve been building my own muscles lately, without any special diets or drinks. The fencing project that I’ve been working on is quite laborous at times. Dragging all the tree limbs and attempting to pull out half buried fence is great for building muscles.

Today must be my day for unknown words, or at least words that I can’t remember the meaning. I just ran across “creatine” and while it does sound familar, for the life of me, I can’t remember what it is, or what it means. One of these days I might have a few minutes to look it up, but that won’t be any time in the near future. I just have too much else to do.

I ran across an interesting word today, the word was “myoripped“. Does anyone have any clue what this word means, or what it is?? It sounds like a medical term to me, but not one that I’ve ever run across before. It doesn’t seem to be in a dictionary, at least not the one I have. However I am sure that if I looked around online I could find out what it is.

This week’s topic for Sunday Scribblings is “surrender”. I have to say that I think this is a tough topic for me to write about. They ask “Is surrender about letting go or giving up? Is it a process or a quick decision? What do you make of surrender?”

I guess the easiest way for me to write about this, is to answer their questions, so…..

I think surrender is both about letting go, and giving up, depending on the cirrcumstances.

I believe that in most cases it is a process, instead of a quick decision.

And to be honest, I have no idea what I make of surrender. I know I’m not one to surrender easily. I’m a fighter to the end.

Emergency Assistance

Posted by Vicki on May 18, 2011

I love it when I get a variety of work assignments. I get tired of doing the same ones time after time. Today I’ve got subjects like emergency assistance, jeans, sunglasses, dna testing, and jewelry. It makes the work a lot more interesting when I can write about different topics!!

Even when I do have the same topics repeatedly, I still love my work. I love that I can work from home, spend so much time with the girls, and work around my life schedule.

Gold Bars

Posted by Vicki on May 18, 2011

Wouldn’t it be nice to have some gold bars lying around somewhere, or maybe when the lottery. There is so much I would like to do. Buy our own small ranch, buy some more horses, get at 1 other vehicle that is in perfect condition, be able to put the girls in dance and gymnastics, buy a sewing machine, and the list goes on and on.

Olive Garden: My Top Choice

Posted by Vicki on May 18, 2011

Thanks for the guest post by Esteban Vinson

I really enjoy going out to Olive Garden. They have the perfect food and the family atmosphere feel is fantastic! One of the things I really like is that many of their restaurants have great gluten-free products for those of us who can’t digest gluten. Their salad is great as well.

Olive Garden is the perfect place for a date night. In fact, I can’t tell you how many times my best friend and her husband have gone out on a date for them. It’s fun to go with them. I’ll leave my house, set my home security alarm system from www.Home-alarm-systems.com/, and then eat out at a great restaurant.

With Olive Garden, I never have to worry about the food quality. I never hav! e to worry that the food is poor. The excellent staff always manage to make me smile. I also like the restaurant’s decor; it’s fantastic!

When looking for a great restaurant, be sure to choose Olive Garden. They’re family friendly, fantastic, and easy. Your kids can eat there, too! Who wouldn’t love a restaurant that’s so simple and easy to eat at?
