I read this article  There’s a lady at the gym and she hates me on  Lysa TerKeurst’s blog today  and it resonated with me. I’ve made this mistake and others have made this mistake about me! Like she says in her post, there are those who make it clear that they don’t like you either by […]

A couple years ago, we had a big big garden. It was my first ever big garden and I was so excited. But the garden flooded a couple times before it was able to get established. The weeds took over. I mean TOOK OVER. It was like a wilderness. Little guy was small and I […]

Beat The Heat

Monday, June 20th, 2016

What are you doing to beat the heat? It’s not horribly hot here but it’s definitely warm. Nathan and I are about to head out to the Dollar Store to find some pool toys for his little blow up pool. I sit outside with him and put my feet in while he plays. It may […]

Happy Friday

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Happy Friday! What are your weekend plans?   My husband and I get to celebrate our anniversary with a night away. We are looking forward to time to rest and reconnect. We’re thankful for his job, but it makes spending time together difficult! What are you up to?

Walmart Summer Sale

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

Every extra penny saved matters and it’s basically impossible to beat any cash back on top of Walmart’s low prices. So when I heard that Swagbucks is giving you more for every dollar you spend at Walmart, I had to share! That’s right, Swagbucks is making earning Cash Back easier and giving away $1,000 in […]

Encouraging The Encourager

Monday, March 14th, 2016

I like to encourage people. It’s been something I’ve done since I was small. If I see someone who’s having a rough day, I like to send a note or a small token gift to encourage them.   I have been working on letting people know if I’m praying for them. Not only praying for […]

What Are You Up To?

Friday, March 4th, 2016

We are just busy. I think since I’m feeling better, we’re doing a lot more than we had been doing. Which is good in lots of ways and tiring in lots of others. I haven’t done much knitting lately….or reading! I have been working very hard at eBay again and it’s fun but also taking […]

I’m Baaack!

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

The “me” I like to be is starting to show herself and I’m pretty happy about it. I’ve had more energy lately to tackle some cleaning and organizing projects that have been put off  while I didn’t feel well. It makes me insanely happy to see order and cleanliness starting to appear around here. The […]

This & That Chat

Friday, January 8th, 2016

It’s cold, rainy, and gloomy here today. Which is odd for our neck of the woods. Usually this time of year, any precipitation we get would be snow or sleet. It makes me want to curl up and take a nap though but that’s not on my to do list! I have a get together […]

New Years Questions

Monday, January 4th, 2016

Did you make any resolutions or goals?   Did you pick a word?   In years past, I’ve chosen a word for the year, but I didn’t really feel like doing that this year.   I did set some goals in the fall after my surgery that I’ve been plodding along at–working on weight loss, […]
