Be who you really are

I threw out a very important thing that I wanted to share. I threw out my hair color that I have been using for 40+
years and let my hair go grey. Wow! I have gotten so many compliments and have been told that I even look
Younger. Now I think that I might change my makeup

102 and still going!

I do my spring cleaning in the summer, as I'm a school teacher and have more free time then. I started my "pitch list" as a whim after seeing this website but I'm already up to 102 items! Interesting items include old dog toys, new but will never use dog toys, hair accessories, coffee mugs, nic-nacs, old stockings, makeup, magnets, duffel bags ext. I am now going to go work on my closet....wish me luck!

But I have a problem my mother who…

Weeds are like the unnecessay things in life

I haven't gone through my things lately because the weather has been too nice to be indoors. Instead, I have been tending to my vegetable and flower garden.

Over the years I have built up my flower garden with many perennials. Some of the flowers started out from seeds that I picked from wild flowers.

This year I really think the flowers look spectacular. But, then I noticed that I allowed some pretty flowering Queen Anns Lace grow too close to the vegetable…

Major Moves toward Real Progress

Bulldozed through the house, but mostly got rid of garbage aka mail that should have been straight in trash, broken things and such. Finally got through the house, including the guestroom which had become a catchall over the past few months after having established it as a guestroom.

So, today, I continued to purge by emptying my shop/junk room/office. It was…

Looking For Angels

So why do so many of us act like we are? The fact is, there are all sorts of people out there who can help us - and would if we gave them half a…
