I Smell Spring!!!

*I am fighting a head cold w/ everything in me!
I don't have said head cold yet...but it keeps knocking! I
am punching it down w/ Airborn,vitamins, green drink and rest!
*I stood in Smith's (grocery store) yesterday and smelled spring.
I looked and looked and then saw the little spring
like flowers waiting in the corner for someone to buy them.
I however got their sent for free!
*Everything is covered in 3 feet of snow.
*I feel like a 3rd grader wearing my boots everywhere, and then slipping on
my tennis shoes when I get to my destination.
*Two days ago I drove slowly home at 10 PM from work.
I saw a large wall of snow in front of my drive way
and I did what any crazy lady would do...I plowed right into it!
I was stuck and stuck good! Some strangers stopped to help me dig out.
(One dressed in shorts and slippers). It took 30 minutes of digging
but little Honda was free!! Still to this minute, my arms and body ache!
*I love the sun!
Happy Spring! (somewhere)

It's the little things!!!

Enough already!!

Don't get me wrong I love a token snow storm! I love that it makes the world
white and clean. I love soft fluffy flakes falling from the sky!
But come on people!!

So busy!

"Isn’t it true that we often get so busy?
And, sad to say, we even wear our busyness as a badge of honor,
 as though being busy, by itself,
was an accomplishment or sign of a superior life."
 By President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Today I made myself unbusy! It didn't pay
well but it felt GREAT!!!
Happy Winter!!!

*I love that Baby Theodore's lips are stuck in the 
"fish lip" position. 
*I love that I didn't die when my car slid on the 
free way 40 times yesterday. 
*I love that I do not sleep under an over pass cuz
"Baby it's cold outside!!!
*I love that I don't have to scrape my car EVERY
DAY because it is stink'n hard work and 
makes my feet and my hands COLD! And it makes me a tad bit bitter!
*I love that I made it to church at all. I woke up w/ a scream'n
headache only to realize I forgot to set my alarm! 
*I love that a sweet two year old was super excited to 
see my walk in late. She pointed at me w/ gusto!
*I love that I was able to find my car in the church parking lot
even though it was so dirty I didn't know if it was her or not! 
*I love a one day adventure!
*I love that we can learn from the lessons in church even if we
have heard the topic one million times! 
*I love wool socks! 
*I LOVE puddles of sun!!

Funniest quote of the day! Given by my Sunday School Teacher:
"Sometimes I am so embarassed to be me!"

I love that I can pretend it is February when I know full well it is still 
the dark cold days of January! 
I love to pretend Spring is right around the corner!!

Book Report!

Over the holidays I read the great stack below. I highly recommend them all.
All but the True Sister. True Sisters about Mormon pioneer women
written by a woman who is not LDS and is rather bitter. 

I am so tired of being cold! Today it has warmed to a balmy
28 degrees and it feels warm. Oh thank goodness!!

I LOVE the Flower Patch Farm Girl!! I mean really love. I love her
rainbow of brown kids even more. (If that is possible.)
Ms. FPFG's friend needs help getting a sweet
little Ms. to be a forever part of her family. 
Would you like to help? 
Send a dollar!! 

I am having dental issues! I want to lay on the flow and cry as it
is so frustrating.  I just keep thinking at least I am 
not a pioneer on the plains. Sighhhh!

Dear Spring! Can't wait!!

My grandparents had one of these super cool
desk calendars when I was a child. I loved
the click click sound it made when flipped
it was like magic! I have chipped my tooth again!
It is so cold it burns! It is -3 degrees as I type!
So I keep seeing lots of people flashing their word of the year!
I love a good word of the year! LOVE!
But this year a word of the year didn't SPEAK to me
so I have decided that I will do a word of the month.
This month!
I am so high strung that stress makes me sick. I have
Chipped teeth and tight muscles to prove it.
I need to just chill out and RELAX!!
Happy Friday!

Spray this way!

I love a clean shower. Sadly showers get
nasty quickly! Grout is gross.
I have been using a homemade daily shower spray
for awhile and when I run out I can tell.
This is how I make it.
There are lots of Google resipes out there
but this is the one I like best and was most green!
Get a large spray bottle. Fill w/
1 T. vinager
1 T. dish soap
1 T. washing soda And then fill full w/ water and shake!
Spray your shower after showering and ta da
it stays cleaner longer!! 

Teeny Tiny!

Life would be so much more fun
Just think of all the wonderful things
your fairies could do while you slept!!
PS Love this Blog! Love that Santa brought them
a fairy door!!!
