That was Rosie's comment the other day while she was enjoying her work of redoing a mug display at the store. It is a matter of choice, where we work, and if we enjoy it or not. I finally chose, almost thirty years ago, to love the home I own and to own the home… Continue reading "This Is Why I Work Here"
It's springtime now. The grass greens a bit when it rains and the spring bulbs are all coming up blades of green. Brad went to Nebraska and we miss him. We miss him for him. We also miss him for his chores. When Elv brings in firewood he makes a good job of it to last… Continue reading Spring Stuff

I have spring fever.The article claims that we all have dangerous, toxic bugs hanging off the fridge door handle and everywhere else you've touched the last five minutes, in your… Continue reading Not In My Kitchen
The Pussy Willows are out/blooming/in evidence. So now we have a down payment of spring in hand. And I have discovered how to combat wasting time being sick. This crocheting project is just the thing. Anybody need a large table doily? The husband and son are impressed: husband that I am not bored, and son… Continue reading Pussy Willow and Lace
Charlotte asked me this question.But I want to know, how did you do projects like that when your kiddos were small? Till I make sure my men are fed, have clean clothes, and habitable living quarters; there's not much time left for painting projects. Which makes me depressed, because it takes FOREVER to get one… Continue reading Projects and Messes
We tell our children that tomorrow's world is going to be much different than today's. We tell them that they will have worse or more intense evil to face and to teach their children against. It's a scary future if you get to focusing on the news or listening to too much VCY America radio. Being… Continue reading Wake Up Call For Us Moms
