Night and Day?

Here was the view looking toward the west this morning as I was getting into the truck to go to work.

This picture is blurry because it was so windy I couldn't hold the camera steady. But, that is the moon, huge and still pretty high in the sky at 7 a.m.

Here is the view looking toward the east about 10 minutes later.

The sun is coming up. It looks like it is still pretty dark but it wasn't really.

I just thought that was pretty cool.

Take care and God Bless.

Metamorphosis Monday

I am participating in Met Monday sponsored by Between Naps on the Porch. 

Remember this mailbox from Christmas.

On Saturday I gave it a make over and now it looks like this.

I also took down the burgundy curtains you see in this picture and made some spring ones.

I needed something to brighten up my living room and bring spring in.

Take care and God Bless!

Friend Request

I have had some friend requests for facebook. Please do not feel rejected when I do not respond. I do have a facebook account but I do not have any information on it and do not use it, even for family. The only reason I opened an account was someone wanted me to view some pictures they had on theirs.

I know that if I did make a page and update it, I would be on face book all of the time and not get anything accomplished. I already am so hooked on reading blogs that I spend way too much time doing that also. But it is so much fun and I love getting to know people.

Just wanted to let everyone that reads my blog that I do appreciate you and your comments. I do check your blogs daily also.

Take Care and God Bless!

Good Food and Family

We had planned to take our children and their dates to Fuji (an Hibachi Grill) over the Christmas break. We were unable to work around all of our work schedules so we didn't get to go.

We finally had a night where we were all off so we met at Fuji's in Fort Smith last night. I was able to snap a few pictures while we were there but the lights were low so they did not turn out very well.

Kelsey & Ismael deciding what to eat.

Becca, Craig, and Larry (probably making fun of me for having my camera with me.)

Our chef putting on a show with his knifes. (He's moving so fast, it's a blur.)

The young lady in the picture was not with us. She is cracking up because the chef made a volcano using onions. He set it on fire and then used a plastic squirt gun that was a little boy peeing to put the fire out. Funny stuff!

A fun night out. Thanks kids.

Take Care and God Bless!

Tabletop Tuesday - China Cabinet

It has been awhile since I participated in Tabletop Tuesday (or anything else) so I looked around and tried to decide which display I wanted to photograph.

I finally decided on my China Cabinet. My father made this cabinet for met over 20 years ago. Isn't he wonderful with woodwork. Sometimes I have dishes inside (like now) . . .

And sometime I have my Home Interior Denim Day figurines in it. (Here are just a few of them.)

I usually change the top with the seasons also.

And I change the base top also.

Be sure to visit Marty's A Stroll Thru Life for more beautiful ideas.

Looking for Spring

"Spring is Here!" At least that is what I posted last week. Since then, we had another short bout with snow. Only a little here but 5-8 inches 25 miles away over on the other side of the ridge. Strange huh!

It is so nice outside today that I decided to take a walk around the yard looking for signs of spring.

Not sure what these are. They were planted here when we moved here. I'll have to pay closer attention this year when/if they bloom.

Wild onions. They seem to grow everywhere.

Moss grows almost anywhere here also. It is a wooded area and stays damp, even in the gravel.

Lots of pine saplings growing naturally. I'm not sure what we'll do with these.

That is actually a tadpole in the pond. Cool, huh! You may be able to click on the picture to enlarge.

Lots of greenery but only a couple of flowers. Hopefully, there's more to come.

The trees are budding.

The buzzards are flying over.

Lots of signs that spring is on it's way.

Take care and God Bless!

It's Snowing

Well, it really did happen. But we just got a dusting.Two hours northwest of us, they have 7-8 inches already. They are at a higher elevation. We got about an inch (I live on a ridge) and it has started snowing again now. We are under a watch until 7 p.m. I don't have to worry about going anywhere as it is spring break next week.

This is what I call ugly snow. I went to church this morning and as I drove down the ridge, there was a noticable difference in snowfall. There usually is. Hardly any on the ground or cars sitting out.

Well, it's time to go clean the kitchen again. It is never ending. Then down to the sewing room.

Take care and God Bless!

A Few More Spring Items

 I'm linking to Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday. Drop by to see many great ideas.

Here are the remainder of the items in my "lost" box.

So I do have some Spring/Easter decorations to bring life to my house. Now if I could find some very inexpensive spring colored curtains. Even yellow sheers would do to brighten up the place.

Until next time . . .

Take Care and Gob Bless!

Tablescape Thursday--Spring is Here!

I told you yesterday that I found my box of Spring decorations that has been MIA for 6 years. Is that even possible if you don't even think about having it? 

I decided to take most of the items and form a tablescape. I started by looking for a tablecloth that felt "springy" to me. I knew I had a mauve one but could not find it. I did run across a pastel colored baby blanket that would fit the bill perfectly. But . . . when I put it on the table, I didn't like how the dishes looked around it. So I decided to fold it in half and make a tea time table setting for two. 

Here are the guests of honor . . . 

Aren't they dapper? I'm sure they'll let you join them. 

This one reminds me of a cross between the "Mad Hatter" and "White Rabbit" in "Alice in Wonderland". Kind of vicious looking. 

A big thank you to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting another great week of tablescapes.  

Take care and God Bless!
