I adore these pictures. Her dad bought her a fishing pole and she was so excited. Hard for a 3yr old
to realize they dont always get a fish...
When I took her home the other night she wanted to drive with Gammy so we did! Just in the driveway of course. Have I mentioned I love this little girl so very much. She really is my saving grace. She is coming over today and I think we will try my(new to me) kitchen aid mixer and make chocolate chip cookies. Have a great Sunday! Blessings Pam

Melinda over at alabaster rose designs is so inspiring. I look forward to each and every post... Imagine my surprise one day when I happened to be looking through her list of blogs and my name was on it! I could not believe that little old me had something to offer people to read and inspire. Made me feel special. Not only that but she takes the time out to read each comment and always responds back. Thanks Melinda!!!!
What a beautiful weekend! I am exhausted however! I have not sat down all weekend. Do you ever feel like you just pace around and are not really getting anything accomplished? I did manage to paint, paint, paint stuff for our booth.. Lots of white!!! I am getting better and proud of myself! I also got some small stuff ready as well. Had yard done and hedges trimmed today.. Lawnmower in shop! It drives me crazy as I am the type when I want something done I do it myself and get it done. Made my laundry soap for the week, got my hair done, and have done two great workouts in the last couple days. It is no wonder I am tired.. Also got a trip into Trader Joes.. They have an awesome wine selection (speaking of which) I have a bottle chilled and waiting. Enjoy your Sunday.. Blessings Pam
It is hard to see these beautiful flowers. They are in a little vintage looking teacup and saucer..
But they were delivered today from my daughter Jordan.. What a nice surprise. Thanking me for helping her out so much.
Is it really so hard? Look at what I have to put up with! My saving grace as I say. She is the easiest little girl.. She is so smart, beautiful, and likes to be right where her gammy is.. I took the day off today to spend with her. We had a good day.. Jordan lives in the house that I gave birth to her in. She has the same bedroom in fact. The house has been in the family for years. It is always kinda weird when I go over to visit... Sorry for the poor pictures. Until I get my camera fixed I am stuck with cell phone shots.. Hope you have a great evening. After a day of playing, cooking, cleaning, laundry I think I will just relax! Blessings Pam
The weekend was so beautiful! Finally!!! Normally it is nice while I am working and raining when I am off. Off to bed and it is pouring outside.. That is okay because it is back to work tomorrow! I received these two old bikes a few weeks ago and they have been on the side of the house. I decided to put one on my porch. Ignore the pink chair in the right hand corner.. No it doesn't belong there. OOPS! The other bike will go to Not to Shabby as soon as it gets a little makeover! It is cute and Green! Has a cute basket on the front. Had lots of energy with nice weather went to mow the yard and the lawnmower doesn't run. Ugh so bummed.. Off to the shop it goes.. Anyways hope you all have a great week! Blessings Pam

Londyn learned how to snap April 12th.. I wanted to journal that for keepsake.. Started working on the spare room today for Londyn when she spends the night. Tonight she went to bed in there by herself. She was so excited. After a very long day of fun and play I am off to bed.

I spent the weekend enjoying the spring weather with a list so big that I really didn't feel like I got much accompished. However one thing I did alot was think about the blessings in my life! Today as I picked my mother a fresh bouquet of flowers along with myself(at my moms) I was reminded of being a child growing up at home. I thought about how I had been married and out of the home now longer than when I lived there. I always remember this bush outside and when it started to blossom spring was right around the corner. I remember taking buckets to that bush and picking up all the ones that had fallen off. Just a childhood memory that came out of a cut of a flower.
What better way to spend some of Easter reading my book that came Friday. I find that I cant put it down. I am not a book reader and most of the time the magazines I buy I seldom read, but just look at the pictures. This book is hard for me to put down. I have followed Stephanie since right after her plane crash. The way she wrote this book makes you feel like you are right beside her living her life. She is an amazing woman.
I guess these are the same picture.(oops)! This is a small area at our space at Not to Shabby!
Penny and I spent some of our afternoon adding stuff to our space. It is really coming along. We were giddy and proud of ourselves as we finished with little touches of flowers and staging our space. We have sold several items already. It looked so cute I kinda hoped things wouldn't sale right away so it stays cute. Funny huh? We feel honored to be a part of it and cant wait for our friend Laura to be able to add her touches to the space as well.
My daughter Jordan who I am so very proud of.. She did an amazing job for Londyn at Easter.. They colored eggs last evening and did a hunt this morning at home! Went on a egg hunt this afternoon in the country.. She dropped Londyn off to us for awhile this evening so we could spend time with her. Gammy is practical and bought Londyn clothes for Easter instead of candy.. While she was here I was reading my book and she picked up the bible went to the couch and opened it and said God helps us with the fruit, God helps up take care of the dogs and cat, god is good! She gets it! I am truly blessed...
My son Noah, who truly amazes me with his kindness and generosity! Hi is truly one of the most giving people I know. He moved out last week.. He was back home for a year and now is out again. We are an empty nest now. It is strange. I am silly because everyone talks about how nice it is when their kids move out but I on the other hand feel misplaced a little. No matter how old they are when bedtime is here I long for them to be home. All of them!
Hope your Easter was a wonderful blessed day! Mine was! Blessings Pam
