Tuesday Time to Tackle: Spring Decor

 It's March 19th, the day the swallows return to San Juan Capistrano, and oldest daughter's birthday.  The calendar says winter's end is nigh.  I'm ready for bright, cheery spring decor.



These little rabbits greet me every time I enter the house.  Originally, they were in a set of four.  My mom received them from a friend for her 7th birthday.  I remember playing with them when I was a child.




Once I'm inside, I hang my keys up near this basket of bunnies.  I believe my mom made the little bunnies--if she didn't, then my grandma did.  


Another table holds a vase of flowers (some of which were used at our wedding almost 26 years ago), a bunny made by middle daughter when she was in grade school, and a flowered basket with a duck made by my grandma.


I added just a couple of spring touches to the mantle in the next room. 


I love how little additions can bring freshness to a room. 

Thanks for springtime, and for oldest daughter.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
