Friday Whoopsie!

Nobody was hurt...just the pride of a new driver.  Hugs of reassurance and now laughter...waiting for the garage door repairman as I post this......:)

I hope you all have a Blessed of Whoopsies!

It Snowed Today.....

Yes indeed, large fluffy flakes fell to the ground for several hours....didn't stick but it sure looked lovely while it was falling.

This week is a busy one for me......I hope you are having a Blessed one yourself!

Instant Collections....

I only pick up vintage rolling pins if they're under $2 and only enough to fill this old salt crock.

(Don't mind the dust) collection of vintage enamelware coffee pots on top of my red amoire...the red  lights add a nice touch in the evening.

A collection of husband's photos from when his Grandfather dabbled in race horses, with a remnant of an old metal horse weathervane thrown in for impact. far I've found 19 in cupboards and drawers, and I have a feeling more will surface.

I collect many things, dust and clutter seem to be heading the list but I am trying to keep on top of it.
We are starting to get some very lovely days here and are seeing the sun more....thank GOD.
Just wanted to share....

What's going on?

I didn't realize it had been 2 weeks since I last blogged...WOW!
~ We had Spring Break last week which was nice.....daughter went to Disney in CA with her Jazz choir...they performed there and then had 3 days to play with Mickey and Minnie.
~ Son got his learner's permit so he's been driving his parents around...even to run mundane chores
~ Busy with high school graduation plans, college readiness etc...
~ I still need to get my taxes in the mail...(although they are DONE)
~ Doctors, Dentist visits and all that fun stuff
~ Registering courses with the state for next years school at home
~I am trying to get a handle on the overwhelming amount of stuff that seems to multiply in my home

There are some days I just want to throw my hands up and run from the house screaming but then I realize I won't have anywhere to  Recently I have found that I am very overwhelmed and I just can't please everyone all the time...and that's okay.  I've come to grips with the fact that God has placed me in this role and as long as I keep Him in sight I can be whatever I want to be, regardless of what others think of me.  This is just a season that I need to get through.

It's still damp and chilly here in the Pacific Northwest....we are still experiencing almost daily rain, we had ONE nice day last week where we ran outside and cleaned & vacuumed both cars and mowed the lawn to get ready for Spring.  The house is still chilly and the heat still kicks on at 64 degrees....I am SO READY for warm weather.

Blessings to all for a great day!
