Is that a light?

You know that old cliche about hoping the light at the end of the tunnel is not a train? Well, tonight I should be picking up my car after it has spent three weeks in the car spa. Outside I have asked my son to liberally sprinkle crystals that promise to deter wild kingdom creatures. I plan to part on top of that spot! The tally was very close to $2800, and I have a $500 deductible. Ouch! If  groundhog sees its shadow, let's hope it is not in the shape of a Ford Fusion!



I have blogged about the progress I am making on cleaning. We are doing our two homes at the same time, and I really recommend this method! It is actually like shopping with a credit card that is already paid! Whether I eBay, Etsy, auction or open a shop, I will enjoy going through the boxes I am packing and storing in the room downstairs! I am having fun trying to remember the stories that want to wander Memory Lane with me!




The grass has really come into its glory, along with a white lilac and our lovely red bud. My cheerful exterminator insisted on "sharing" he had caught two snakes and a lizard in the basement. No,  not the big blacksnake he quests after each visit....   Dubious good news, and I am hopeful the same process will keep the big one "sticking around" the basement and not up topside.




My dear friend convinced me to try Audible. It is a great place to find books read to enhance our lives. People use it for handicap assistance and for commuting companionship. I love it for working around the house. I am listening now to Chip and Joanna Gaines read Magnolia Story. I enjoy the books the authors read. It is funny that if I listen to a book while I fold laundry, the next time I fold laundry I think about that book...


Have a wonderful day.

Easter Poses

We had a quiet but wonderful Easter. My son and a dear friend of mine came for lunch. The Easter bunny hopped in several times.






Time to pack up the bunnies for another year!

Beverage Corner

Do you guys have a coffee bar or a tea corner? I decided yesterday it would be fun to create one in my kitchen. My dear friend sells teas, so I think it will be a quick treat to have the tins of tea (which I have 4 or 5 different ones ordered) ready to let them choose.



I had the little wash stand so loaded it was positively squatting! Now that my Mr. Coffee knockoff Keurig bit the dust, I don't need so much room...  So what do you think? 



I unloaded a metal rack of china and created this little spot for coffee and tea! A sweet couple made the blue cupboard and posted it for sale before Christmas on Swapshop.

It is Springtime in Missouri!

Well, it is in the 50's....

Well, okay....
