Little Bits of April.

I am so astonished how fast the months of 2105 are flying by.

Goodness Gracious!

The little people  are growing like weeds.

Clayton can say "Jesus".... 

And in his heart he can sing "Jesus Loves Me" 

He just loves to hear people sing to him. 

The princess girls have these matching BIG glasses that they think are


Long live the Easter Bonnet :)

Easter has refreshed the desire to live life with greater purpose. 

Amazed that $1.88 can create such JOY

Also amazed that I have potted flowers on my porch already!

We have a couple rows of potatoes planted in the garden.

Hope to get more things planted this week.

Found a potion that will keep the bunnies from eating my tulips.

5 cloves Fresh Garlic,  1 tsp. Red Pepper,  1 TB. Dish Soap.
Place in One Gallon of Water.
Let set in the sun for 24 hours to brew.
 I can't remember when these tulips actually got to bloom
without being eaten off. 

It is a good life !

Barefoot days are here!

What could be better than a shark pillow on fuzzy blanket 
with a pink umbrella????

A Shark pillow on a fuzzy blanket with TWO pink umbrellas ! 

We have had a mix of beautiful days and dreary days.

I'll take more beautiful days please. 

I have loved having the windows open once again. 

This is my latest sewing project.

"Smokey Mountain Stars" 
a Free pattern from Bonnie Hunter 

Using thrifted shirts  along with some of my husbands shirts. 

I can't decide how I feel about it..... 
 It is not total 100% love at the moment.    

The list of things I'm suppose to be accomplishing each month....

Not going so well. : (

Once again astonished at how fast the months are flying by. 

I need to get cooking on some things!

Hope your Spring days are filled with beauty and JOY.

Your shirt quilt looks great Janita, I am sure that you will come to love it!

You're right Janita, the months are just flying past and this one is almost over too. We must be getting older! Don't worry about your lists, sometimes life just intervenes and upsets our plans. Enjoy your grandchildren and the beautiful weather and all it brings.
