Man cave post to come this summer, Penny! :)
Thank you for sharing your experience and suggestions, Karen! I will print this and file it with our washing machine paperwork. Good to keep in mind - though I have my fingers crossed it will be smooth sailing from here on out! :)
Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and kind comments! Happy Spring! :)

Lol, Penny! Yes, we had a dear sweet calico named Penny. Moneypenny, formally, but Penny to all who knew and loved her. She was so pretty and loving!
Thank you very much, Lisa - you can't know how much those words meant to me! :)
Happy Monday, my friends! I hope your week is off to a great start. :) Are you enjoying the unfolding of Spring as much as I am? Oh my goodness, it's just one happy surprise after another ... and yet... Continue reading

Four days ago, my friends, our (four-legged) boys turned four years old! :) I thought I'd share some silly-sweet pics I took yesterday ... they are both doing well and enjoying the spring just as we are. Noses pressed to... Continue reading

A few pictures from our Saturday, the springiest day we've had yet! Fresh rhubarb I found at the market! I can't wait to turn it into this. Garden seeds purchased at the local agricultural co-op. I am especially excited for... Continue reading

A project in progress! :) The units above were just installed, but we are planning to re-do this laundry closet - spruce things up a bit and make it more efficient for the head washerwoman. (Aka, moi.) But it's been... Continue reading

Thank you, all! I am seeing small changes here ... we may be getting sleet tonight, but the weekend looks to be sunny and near 70 by Monday! April is indeed such a sweet and surprising month!

Thank you so much, Jennifer! Such a kind thing to say - I hope you had a most blessed Easter! :)
Thank you, Lori! I hope your holiday was lovely! :)
Ooh, Penny - a little snow tonight I think? Maybe sleet here, but ... near 70 by Monday! We're getting there slowly ... :)
Thank you so much, Arlene! We did indeed wear our blue this year! And my dad has ordered blue light bulbs for our front doors (we couldn't find last year's!). I hope you and your family are well - keeping Baylor in my prayers!
Thank you so much, Mary! As always, you are so sweet and so supportive of me! Bless you! I hope you had a wonderful Easter.
Love to you and yours, Penny! There was much cake ... :)
Amy, I am so happy for you ... I'm glad you are feeling so happy and hopeful! A diagnosis is absolutely vital in going forward and I am sure you will get the help your son needs. It's all good going forward - even though we have many challenges with Earlybird, knowing that we are doing something, that we have a plan and are moving forward alleviates so much stress. Then we ask God to just steer us where we should go and strengthen us to provide whatever is needed. Thank you for checking in and letting us know where things are!
Thank you, Leah - I wanted to let you know I *finally* got around to answering your housekeeping calendar questions! :)
Thank you, all! You are very kind to share your own celebrations and say such nice things about ours. It was a really nice day ... :)
Heather, your photos are gorgeous!! Thank you for linking to your blog post, it was lovely! :)
Lol, Amy - I know how you feel! Bookworm moves home on Mother's Day! :)
Amy, you have my prayers! I hope you find answers that are helpful and hopeful. Please keep us posted!
Oh, my friends - this post has taken me so long to compose! I see my draft was originally started on March 5th! But let's talk about those cleaning cards, shall we? I currently have a crayon-wielding toddler climbing up... Continue reading
