Ooo isn’t this pretty? A ruffled shower curtain. I was trying to decide if this would work in our bedroom. I don’t think it will because our room is so small but it’s pretty. Easy bed canopy. An easy cheap idea for wall art Cute! A Hello Kitty birthday party Pretty push pins A pretty […]

Change of Plans

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Over the past few years, I’ve been on a mission to decorate our bedroom. Initially, I chose red and black with cream and silver for accents. I had a hard time finding red bedding that fit my ideas. WELL! If I had a few hundred bucks for a bed set, I could have found all […]

Lee has temporary work this week helping a contractor roof. We’re very thankful for that. Although it’s hard for him to work full days of such hard labor when he’s been out of work for 4 months! He’s had a few interviews and a couple call backs. So still waiting on that front. Yesterday, he […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Hello! How is my healthy stuff going? Pretty good I’d say. *I’m still following my plan as well as doing a new exercise routine called T Tapp. It’s really changed my body and I’m happy about that. It’s one of those things that you look at and scratch your head. It doesn’t look like you’re […]

When Lee was “away”, I didn’t sleep well. I spoke with a widow at church and she said she still doesn’t sleep well. I don’t know why–you’d think I’d have learned how to sleep alone after all those years. I started staying up late just so I didn’t have to think about Lee being gone. […]

Last night, I was up late watching election returns. It got pretty late and I decided to just go to bed and see what happened in the morning. I sat forward on the couch ready to get up and turn off the TV. I spied Lee’s shoes underneath the coffee table. I started to feel […]

I saw this idea in a magazine and thought it was pretty cute! I put wheat grass seeds in some dirt and added lollipops. It’s fun! The cats love it too–actually they’ve pretty much just eaten all the grass now. I’ll have to replant it and find some more lollipops.
