Spring~ March~ St. Patrick's Day

What a beautiful day we are here in my neck of the woods.  It is a gorgeous March Sunday.  I know it isn't going to last long.  After all I live in northern Utah and the weather can change hour by hour.  But while the sun is shining I am going to enjoy, enjoy.  I know that SPRING will soon be here.

I thought I would show you a little of my March decorating.  Oh, boy have I slowed down.  I don't decorate like I use to for holidays and special months.  After all this is the month of St. Patrick's Day, and it just so happens my daughter was born on St. Patrick's Day.  

This is my little girl.  


I have three sons and one daughter.  She is number two.  She has an older brother, and two younger brothers.  And yes she is spoiled!  But then so are her three brothers.  Isn't that what children are for to "spoil"  love and cherish.  Sometimes "spoiled" gets confused with "cherished."  The older I get the more blessed I am to have my wonderful children, and their spouses and their children.  I love Family!

Well, I have slowly been doing a few things around the house.  I can't wait to do my spring house cleaning.
I don't do it until later in the month.  We still have a lot of bad weather coming.  After all it is called Spring cleaning.  Oh, dear, I won't show any pictures of my sewing/craft room.  It looks like a mad woman nightmare.  Well, actually it is a mad woman's nightmare.  MINE!  

Instead I will show you some March decorating.  
Of course my little March Precious Moment
sits out for the month.  You know I collect them.
Well, I have slowed down collecting them.  I have quite a 
collection of them though.

I love to decorate this little antique buffet.  It sits on a small wall
in my living room.  It is the first thing you see when you come in my house.
It is just a fun area to change and re-change with season, months or when 
I am just in the mood for the change.
You can see the little Shamrock plate and tea pot.  I have the
cups and saucers also, but decided to just display these.

It comes to be this time of year and I want flowers.  Well, I was in
the grocery store the other day determined to find a pretty bouquet
of "live" flowers. . .Nope! They cost too much. . .so....
when you can't have "live" flowers you have to have
"faux" flowers.  (Fake)
Hey don't judge. . .I like my faux!
And there are just times when you have to stay in your budget.

Well, I hope you are having a little break from the winter weather.
Even if you are not.  You can still enjoy the season.
And remember SPRING is just around the corner.

Have a good Day!

Everyday Happiness

Well, Hello my friends. I thought I had better get with it and do a post.  I don't want you to forget me!  It just seems life gets busy, no matter your age, whether you are working outside the home, raising children, or running a business.  Time just seems to run faster and faster, anyway it seems that way for me.  It is March already!!! Yikes,  I can't keep up with it all.  But, I just keep going, and going, and then I am gone. . .

Here is a little picture of my beautiful view.  Oh how I love these mountains.
I feel like they are tall Sentinels guarding this beautiful valley I live in.
As I ponder on what I could post about, I decided I would post on the
things that make me happy.  And this scene right here makes me happy.
No matter the season, no matter the time of day it thrills me to see those
beautiful tall steady rock solid mountains. I like watching the
Oquirrah's change with the season.  It makes me happy!

These little character make me happy also.  Oh how I love
my little Terrorists, Teddy and Cash.

These nine little souls are the joy of my life.  Oh, how they fill my
soul with joy, happiness and deep love.
I thank God every moment for allowing me to be a 
Grandma to these nine amazing Grandchildren.
As I have watched them grow to the amazing people they are
I can only say , I Stand All Amazed.  
They are smart, bright, polite, athletic, talented, and 
are beautiful in every way.  They make me so happy when I 
am with them.  And the best part is they
Just how does that happen?  

Well, there you have it.  My happiness begins with the glorious 
blessings the Lord gives me.  
I live in a beautiful place.  I am surround with people who
love and cherish me, and I have two little fur babies that love me too.

I hope you have found your happiness!
