Cupa Tea!

Things I have been pondering.

You can be as nice as you want to people and still they can be VERY mean.
Life dosen't change cuz you want it too.
It still snows in the spring!
Telling a little primary boy that I have spiders in my arm pits dosen't make him stop tickling. Sighh!
Popcorn w/ butter does taste LOADS better then the diet stuff I always eat. Only one point!
Sometimes I don't have it in me to stand in line at Cafe Rio! So I leave!
I often wake up w/ the song "Scripture Power" playing over and over in my head!
I love a good nap!

Bad News!!

I often joke w/ the girls at the group home saying "Bad News" when really it's GREAT news! But today it really is bad news!! One of my favorite spots is no longer! The Michael's dollar section is no longer a dollar is it is a dollar and a 1/2. Sad sad day!!

I went to lunch today w/ a darling friend (and daughter). We talked about much. It made me think about how often we are in places that are not ideal...but we can bloom anyway!!

One of the ladies from the group home where
I work asked quickly before readying herself for bed...
"Do I need to wear green pajamas too? "


I saw this darling in Country Living! So cute and so FREE!

How come projects never look like the picture?

Dear Sun thanks for shine'n today!!

Blogger is taking forever to upload!! UGAH!! 2 days ago I had my windshield changed 200 bucks later and a 45 minute walk down memory lane!

When I was in Jr. High we had the worlds meanest and most over weight PE teacher. We also had to wear these polyester beauties! They were about 2 inches long and awful! While standing on the PE field I'd look at the darling house across the street and dream!!

While waiting for my wind shield I walked by my Jr. High crush and she is so much cuter now!

Her paint color has changed and look at that DARLING topiary!! So cute!! Still she makes me swoon!!

How cute would this window box be in the summer w/ hot pink flowers!! Swoon!  She is even for sale:

  Here is another beauty I saw and love on my million mile walk!

Happy Spring!

Sing Sing Sing!

I teach primary...cuz I am cool like that. We sing A LOT in primary!! We lean new songs all the time. I can't keep up! I had the great idea to make a little "cheat" (in a totally righteous way!) song book. I want to keep up w/ the 4 and 5 year olds in my class!! Guess what someone already came up w/ the idea and you can down load it! I did and look what I made! CUTE! Better yet it will make me look smart!!

Last night I returned home from work to a large (barn) fire not far from my home. It was huge and lit up the night sky and filled the air w/ loads of stinky smoke. I thought about how quickly things can change.

This morning I felt the same way for those is Japan. To my friends in Japan who I do not know...

It is going to be warm today! I love it!!
My taxes are DONE!
I often wake up tired!
I have super crazy dreams!
I love a good book on CD!
I need a new project. Something paintable.
I often give myself home made hair cuts. It shocks my stylist!
I feel super sad when my e-mail box is empty in the mornings!
I need a vacation something crazy fierce!
I do things my way...and that dosen't mean it's wrong!

Saturday I had to work. I hate working on Saturdays! Honestly! To soften to blow of both working and a killer head cold one of the girl I work w/ and I went and thrifted!! I happened on this beauty!  I bought her for 5 bucks. Thinking only of how much fun my darling nieces would have...and dreaming that this little lady slipped over a card table!

It didn't!! We did however pretend that it did!  


I later asked the thrift store employees if they had see the frame for the pricey little home away from home. In a round about way they stated that if they don't know what it is they toss it. PB won't just sell the frame....and I will no way pay 150.00 for this baby new. Lesson learn..LABEL things you send to DI or put them together in a garbage bag!! If said thrift didn't have a locking dumpster...I'd go have a "look see". Sighhh!!

I saw thing on a blog and made didn't turn out as cut!

My primary class is four and 5. They can't read yet but gosh it is cool to bring your scriptures to church! I hated the beat up cover on my little tripple I got when I was 8 so I did a little "slip cover" outta paper this morning. Wait till my friends in primary see this baby!!

The sun is shine'n! The head cold is leave'n!
I love spring!

It's today...again! Doesn't today seem to come so often!!

Today I:

Woke up w/ a stuffy nose and sore throat.
I hate to scrape my car.
I raised my voice when someone I knew threw down a full trash bag in rage.
I ate the yummest pizza for LUNCH and DINNER!!
I saw a girl I know ONLY from Face Book and she saw me two
we both smiled and said "Hi" and acted awkward the whole time!!
I soaked in all the sun I could.
I was tired all day and took a fitful nap.
I am going to bed super early!

Can't wait for tomorrow!! Already have my list ready!
