Pink Posies


Hello people! What’s new with you? I’ve been busy with this, that and the other…no big happenings, but always on the go. You know what I mean?
When I was out and about last week, I picked up a few more pink tulips. I’m not sure of the variety, but I loved that they were petite and ruffled…a little different than the ones I usually see. I applied a texture to these photos since I didn’t really love the way they turned out. I’m not sure if it helped, but sometimes you just have to work with what you got, ya know?!


Speaking of working with what you’ve got, I’ve been cleaning and purging and arranging my kitchen.I figured I’d paint it and maybe brighten it up a little. I’m also hoping that the Mister will finally see the light and paint the cabinets for me. He likes that look too, but knows that if we paint all the woodwork in that room it would be a big domino effect and we’d have to continue on with everything else…on that level of our house anyway.
All in all, it would be lots of work. I’m thinking it might just be easier to move…to someplace warm would be even better 😉


Well, I have to run to the store before my kids get home…just thought I’d say hello. Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
Chat later…


Snow Days

We’re waking up to more snow this morning…lots of soft and fluffy flakes gently floating to the ground. Yes, it looks so pretty, but I wistfully think back to last year’s relatively snowless winter and wish for spring.
Most of my outdoor adventures over the past few months have involved shoveling, taking pictures in the backyard or going to the park with my little girl.
She likes to tromp through the snow pretending she’s on the hunt for some creature or another. She’ll yell something on the order of, “RUN, Mom! There’s a wild animal…it’s going to get us!” and then she’ll start running in the other direction. It’s almost impossible to get a photo of her since she’s gone before I know it.
My son is a more willing subject, but it seems like every photo I’ve taken of him, he had a snowflake in front of his nose or his eye…I’ll have to try again today.
This morning when he was getting ready for school, he didn’t want to wear his boots. He’s in middle school now and since no one else ever wears their boots, he doesn’t want to either.  I could hardly contain my laughter when I asked him if he wanted to put on his snowpants too 😉
Well, I hope you all have a great weekend!



Although it’s my natural inclination, I’ve noticed that, for whatever reason, I’ve been feeling much more introspective as of late. Often, throughout the day, it seems like there are always certain people and ideas that drift to the surface in my thoughts and then linger there.
I think of my kids, wondering and worrying about their futures, hoping that I’m helping to lead them in the direction that God has planned for them. I think of myself and my dreams, praying that I will accomplish all that I want for my life before the days quickly pass. And I think of my family, friends and all of you too…thankful for the wonderful moments and words that everyone brings to my world.
Anyway, with that in mind, I just wanted to say a little hello, wish you all a very happy weekend and let you know that I’m thinking of you 🙂
