End of School Year

I see it has been a month since the last post. It has been a busy month for sure. We were getting ready for our second grand baby to be born. She was born about a week ago! A beautiful girl named ZeQara. She is fun and adorable. Mommy is doing good as well. 🙂 She and mommy are living with us currently. ZeQara is a good baby so far.  🙂  I tell her mom that means she will be ornery when she is older. LOL

Hopefully not, but you know.   🙂

We were blessed with our four kids being pretty good babies. ZeQara’s mom(oldest kid) is so far the orneriest of them all. Still have two going through high school, so one could win that honor yet. The youngest at times tries.

I sure can not believe how fast time flies. I remember as a young kid wanting time to speed up. The adults would say oh just wait, it will go by so fast when you are an adult. I didn’t believe them. Wowzers!

Definitely, they were correct.

Then what will we ever do?

Spoil grand kids? I think that is a winner! We have two now! Bummer the grandson is many miles away, but that might change someday! If not, maybe traveling will be in the plans to see him. Miss his parents as well.  🙂

We are in for some more rain tonight. We have had way too much for the month. Our lake and rivers are getting too high. We did see a tornado two days ago that was along side our neighborhood, a mile or two away, so there was no damage. Hopefully the weather person is wrong for more storms tonight.

Well, I best figure out supper, have a good night everyone! 🙂

 

My January 2019

New lists,
Old goals.
Same work,
Some chores.
Mostly smiling,
Rarely crying.
Birthday approaching,
Crackling knees.
January ends,
February begins.

Simply sums up my month of January. 🙂 It has been a decent year thus far. A few bumps in the road but more good happenings. It is currently cold and a bit of snow on the ground. Though we have had some nice weather this month as well. Tonight is so far the coldest night we have had to deal with. My ideal temp is around 40 – 50 if it has to be cold. I must say yesterday was 32 and it felt nice because the sun was out after hiding for some time and NO wind. It felt really nice. I can handle that. Today it was sunny but that dang wind was there.


Well, I best get off here and hit the pillow. I am trying real hard to get back to bed before midnight again. Sigh. I have been terrible with staying up until 1 or 2 because of my job. It has been the way the schedule has fell. My own fault. 🙂 Night!

A – and A + + Art Day 1

I’m participating in an art challenge this month. Coloring. My art looks pretty simple compared to the other ladies on the site. They have some awesome stuff. I went simple because this will be sent to a LetterMo pen pal. I will write on the other side. LetterMo was last month but I like to reply as long as they send me letters. #thedailymarker30day

People who drive on other’s grass or park on it. I see this everyday picking up my son from school. Drives me nuts. It isn’t just a little bit of the tires. They completely drive on it and turn etc. Then they cause a mess with traffic trying to enter the ongoing traffic. My grandparents taught me to not even walk on someone else’s yard let alone drive. Shaking my head.

It’s March 1st, sunny and warmer than normal! 🙂 Spring is around the corner. I bought a tulip plant the other day because this weather is giving me Spring fever. 🙂 It is sitting on my window ledge in the Creative Cave! 🙂

What do you think about the – and + for the day?

Organizing Fool

I have been very slowly organizing my new Creative Cave. Organizing it means the rest of the house gets some organizing done. Nice to be able to put things in its own place. I had not realized how much little “stuff” I have to find a place for it. 

Unfortunately, I have not done any writing and only a little bit of reading. I feel that will change here soon. I am at least getting to the point where I can get back into that. I am one who is a creature of habit. I need to make it a habit in my daily routine. Part of my problem is beginning the day with a TV show I like and then that leads to another and another. Slap my hand, hide the remote!

Update on beautifying the yard, only mowing is getting done. The weather is still unpredictable so I have not tried planting any flowers yet. I think this next week it might be ok. The hubby and I are going to plant some tomatoes so we can make salsa and pasta sauce with it for the winter time. We eat quite a bit of this so hopefully it will save us some money. 🙂

Our trips back to the Puzzle House will start soon. We would have been back already to work on yards and houses but so many things going on here personally it has prevented it from happening. We are so thankful for the family helping keep on eye on the places for us. 😉

It is hard to believe the boys will be out of school for the summer soon. But that also means baseball season begins for them! Yay! They will be on the same team so that means not too many nights at the field.

That is a wrap for this month! How has your month or Spring been going?
