Journaling thoughts ... April

Had a rough day yesterday, when my head got into “what if...” mode. This cloudy, chilly weather isn’t helping. Then, for like five minutes, the sun broke out from behind the oppressive cloud banks. I noticed it first as a striking glaze of brightness across the chest at the foot of my bed. And I marveled at how much better it made me feel. Now, I’m making an effort to daily find that narrow path of light. Something to be grateful for. Something to put my head in the right place. I found it today in time spent in scripture. (Ecclesiastes: my favorite book ... And Wow! What a read, in the current situation!) Today, I’m grateful for the myriad of tiny, shimmering, intrinsic blessings that my simple, quiet life is built upon.

Easter 2020

Baskets and Eggs ... Easter Sunday ... April

We had a lot of time on our hands, so we had a basket hunt, followed by an egg hunt!

Eggs ... April

We weren't able to hit the stores, as usual, this easter. So eggs were dyed with whatever food coloring we had on hand (three colors ... and it worked BETTER than the boxed egg dye!) and easter baskets were light this year ... but we had fun! We've been watching a LOT of episodes of FRIENDS ... so a lot of the eggs had sayings from the show. :)

Social Distancing ... Grand Mere Style ... April

We FINALLY got out of the house and went for a hike at Grand Mere this weekend ... it was SO good to be out and about! We live in a pretty fantastic place, if you HAD to be quarantined somewhere! That's for sure!! The dogs were ecstatic. The kiddos were too ... they did some dune climbing and we all soaked up the sun.

More Quarantine Life ... April


Lots of time to mess with our hair

Grandma made masks and mailed them to us. We used them when we went shopping.

Sitting outside on a nice, warm day! These are few ... but fun!

I finished a cross-stitch project

Rhy had a fashion show!

I made gooey butter cake for Gabriel. YUMMMO! It didn't last 24 hours!
Lots of Looney Tunes!

snuggly doggos!
