Memoir Monday {No. 65}

 Photo evidence of events of the week… Tucker’s tree blooming! Getting familiar with sprayer and settings and lots of details to figure out. All above my head. I just took pictures.

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]

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]

Birthday celebrations and birthday memories! No all-out shin-digs or parties, but special lunches and celebrating that our kiddos were born!

Wherein We Look At Books Being Read at Present, Recently Read, Patiently Waiting

Recently I’ve pulled some books off of my bookshelves to re-read, requested and picked up some new books from the library and noticed some of the books lurking around that we’ve read recently or are waiting. I randomly took some pictures. Then I decided “Hey, it’d be fun to dump all of these into a [Read On]

Three Things {Favorite Finds No. 3} Ottoman, Whisk, Leggings

My No. 1 favorite find for this post is this red, polka-dotty ottoman that was welcomed to our basement. I’m loving it. Stools, ottomans, footrests…they’re just great to have to pair with couches and chairs, plus they can make a nice perch now and then and add a fun bit of decor to a room. [Read On]

A Lifeway Visit {Five Minute Friday}

I stood in the middle of the Lifeway store and looked around me. My sister-in-law had a gift item that needed returned and I was glad to visit an actual, real life, Lifeway storefront. I’d shopped Lifeway online, but never stepped foot inside one of their stores. I felt at home as I looked at all [Read On]

Washi Tape ClipBoard

This is another one of Renae’s projects. I think someone as craft-challenged as myself could even handle this! I’m pretty sure she saw this idea on Pinterest and I had several clipboards around and I had washi tape in amongst my ribbon and gift packaging stuff. It really does look fun to try. I don’t [Read On]

A Touchstone of Remembrance When… {Five Minute Friday}

WHEN   Linking up with Kate   That’s the writing prompt. It turned my mind to a couple of things that have been running through my head anyway. I thought about the beginning verses in Joshua 4.
