Keep Calm!! Dollar Store Find!

I love the dollar store. I love the Keep Calm quote.
I was once 1/2 British you know.
 I found one of those sticky wall words
and stuck it to a magnet board I already had.
One dollar happy dance!!
Got one for work too!!
Maybe it will keep us all calmer?
Happy Spring!!

Junk Mail Wreath!

The front door at work was looking a little (a lot)
sad! It needed some happiness.
It needed some FREE happiness!
Then came then mail! Mostly junk!
I quickly cut it up and made this lovely.
The junk mail was pre-cycled and
looks DARLING!!
(lots of little fans stapled
to a cereal box donut!)
Happy Spring!!

It's Natural!!

Have you seen what has arrived in Logan?
Across from Old Navy?

Lots to see and "tester".

Dr. Bronner's for MILES!!

I love CHEAP but still effective 
Essentials Oils! 

Go visit!

And Such

*Easter has come and gone and it will soon be MAY!! I can't believe it!
*I only like rain when I request it!
*I laughed when my nephew saw floaties in his water
and said they were tiny fish!
*A woman at the group home's fish died. We got new ones
I have not seen her so happy in months!!
*It is so good to see old friends, and also realize no ones life is perfect!!
*I think the guarding of dumpsters is DUMB!!
*People are more important than things. People forget!
*I would never have clean laundry if I lived in the olden days!
A whole day to boil, ring dry and hang wash only to iron it!! Sighh!
*I don't have a good book to read as of late!
*I would retire tomorrow if I could!
*When tiny play dates arrive unannounced. I love it!
Happy Spring!

Little Help!!

My nephews are DARLING!!
They both have quirks that make me
giggle all day long!!!
Tiny Theodore is a clean freak!
He was looking for "crumbs" and trying is best to
get every little one. The ear protection? Because he has long
vacuum sessions!!  If Mr. Dyson could fit
into his crib I am sure he'd nap w/ him.

*Today is beautiful!
*My head cold still lingers a tiny bit!
*When gathering w/ long lost friends awkward things
are said and asked!
*This fall a new little bundle will join 2 of my sisters little families.
I wanted pink but one is blue. I will love him no matter.
*A little boy approached me the other day. He only spoke Spanish,
I only English. He told me all about his favorite train Thomas and
all about Choo Choo Trains. I didn't understand another single word
but it was the best conversation of the day!
*A neighbor will turn 101 tomorrow. What stories she can tell!
Happy Birthday Merle!
*My mom even brings home the butter in her take home box. (Weird)
*I love a good book.
*I taught a crafty class the other night. I learned I don't like teaching classes
when I am not thrilled to bits by the subject or medium.
*Don't ever assume anything about me.
*I need an epi pen stat!
*I love the name Hollis!
*My favorite (read cheap) local car wash is closing! Frownie face!
*Is an apology really and apology when one demands it?
Happy Spring!!
