My Littles and Easter {Strolling Down Memory Lane}

I found myself looking at our old Easter pictures and laughing and as always, wondering how the years have galloped along so fiercely in such a fast fashion. Oh, these chubby faces and exuberant expressions and short arms and legs! Green has always been this boy’s favorite color. He dyed all his Easter eggs green this [Read On]

When, On The One Hand You Want To Dissolve Into Maniacal Laughter…

Life certainly has its moments. “You seem like you just have it all together.” THAT. That is what a friend recently said to me. Alrighty then. While I appreciated the thought and the compliment, {who doesn’t appreciate a good compliment now and then?} this big part inside of me wanted to fall down on the [Read On]

Memoir Monday {No. 67}

I found this on my counter one afternoon~ handy-dandy pen holder comprised of various items from my paper drawer in the kitchen. Only problem~it doesn’t stand up very well by itself. There’s That Kitty. I really do have a soft spot for him. And I have fun teasing the owner and trying to convince the [Read On]

I Love You Pillows

I’m so in love with these I Love You pillows.   For a couple of reasons. For starters, I think they’re terribly cute. For another thing, my daughter created and crafted them. So, of course!! They are just so fun to me. She had the idea and had sketched it out in a notebook and [Read On]

We Visit Exploration Place

We had a fun daytrip and outing clear way back at the beginning of the year, when my family was here for birthdays and to see us and be with us. We visited Exploration Place. We were there when our kiddos were much younger. Neither one of them remembered it just a whole lot. I [Read On]

Memoir Monday {No. 66}

Pictures and pictures and pictures! I made a stuffed sweet pepper recipe that sounded fun to try. The peppers were so pretty as they patiently waited to get filled with cream cheese.

Spraying With a Sprayer

  I was out and about a bit, at about the same time as my farmer and his sprayer took off on their maiden voyage spraying wheat on our farm. I wandered over to the field and took some pictures. I enjoy it when it works out for me to snap farmy photos. Many times [Read On]

Wherein She-Who-Seldom Crafts, Crafts an Easter Wreath

I’m EXCITED!!! I made a wreath. Well, kind of. I did not make everything with my own bare hands from scratch, from vines and branches grown in my yard and garden, from fibers woven on my loom, and from plastic melted over my own fire and paint stirred together from crushed berries and whatever else.

Marshmallow Peeps Surprise Cupcakes

I clicked over to Pinterest a few weeks ago to browse for a bit. Pinterest has started doing that whole picked-for-you bit and selecting pins for your feed. I hadn’t paid that much attention and probably really wouldn’t have realized they were doing this, except a few days earlier I had read a sarcastic humor comment [Read On]

Good Morning! I’m giving away a favorite of mine today. I really wanted to do it earlier, more of a winter-take-care-of-your-hands, but it didn’t happen. Instead, we’ll celebrate soft hands for spring and an Easter week giveaway. One of my friends gave me a Satin Hands Set for my birthday a whole bunch of years [Read On]

Spring and Easter Decor

I was starting to feel like winter was running a bit long, even though it was only the beginning of March. Just that longing for sunshine and spring and birds chirping and green shoots shooting up. And while I’d enjoyed my touches of Valentine and red, February had zipped past, taking Valentine’s Day with it. [Read On]

When Cookie Dough and a Kitchen Aid Mixer Catch Your Eye, This is What You Get

I walked away from my mixer. Not always the smartest thing for a cook to do. But then I’m far from the smartest. Fact is, I’m pretty simple. I knew that my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe was a big one. I knew it filled the mixer up pretty good. But the dough needed to [Read On]

Memoir Monday {No. 64}

Last week….. We put on fertilizer …. Wow. A lot happened last week and it seems like a long time ago already. We baked cookies. We made Easter/spring cupcakes that I hope to give their own blogpost… We burnt candles. I’ve felt blessed to have the cozy flickering of candles on many days through the winter [Read On]

Hauling Hopper Bin Bottoms

Once again the days are moving along and the mile long list of winter time projects has been shortened a bit, but never as much as my husband would like it to be. I try to comfort him with the fact of, we-wouldn’t-want-to-run-out-of-things-to-do, but he never bites on that very well. I also argue that this-is-life and [Read On]

A Very Disjointed Blog Post About Words and Manners and Wastebaskets

Words interest me. There are old terminologies that make me laugh. There are lots of words that are way over my head. There’s something that I think we all have in common and that would be an appreciation of kind words spoken to us or about us. I’ve heard  and read stories of the opposite. People can [Read On]

Nice weather. Sunny weather. It means work while the sun shines. It means head to the fields and do what needs done. It means spring is coming. Will the rain? It means time to put on fertilizer.

Just Some Thoughts on a Saturday Night

I’ve been more pain free this last week, than I’ve been in a long time. I am beyond thankful. AND we had nice weather, so I’ve been walking again some. Another thing I’m thankful for. AND I even jogged a little bit when I took a walk on Friday. This is monumental for me. Even two [Read On]

A Box of Sunshine

Renae has been sick. She’s had the sinus/cough/sore throat/headache crud. She’s not done much of anything for about a week, and that’s not her at all. I’m ready to have my girl-that-feels-good back. She’s ready to feel better, too. Being sick isn’t fun, but it does always make you appreciate feeling well! One of Renae’s [Read On]
