 I love live tulips in the house! I save the bulbs, dry them til autumn, and then they go in the ground...My red and yellow tulips from last year are coming up, through the dirt, around my bench in the back yard right now...A gift that keeps giving! 💙

Happy Valentine's Day! 💜

A finished project! I bought this file cabinet/school supply cabinet back in the spring and I asked for it to be unfinished so I could have time to decide what color I wanted it...Well, it sat in my work area for a few months, and then one day I moved it up on my work table and stained the inside...After that, it sat for months and months and months and MONTHS! Today I walked by and said "This is the day!".... I need sunlight coming in my bay window, and I need my work table to antique some frames...Not long after I made that declaration, my hand sander died! So I have been hand sanding all day... This is my finished project to live with for now and decide if I need to do anything else to it after the new year....It feels good to get it this far! Finally! :)

I have to use this day to tell how GOD has blessed us....In 2002, I was told I had cancer and I had 6 months to a year to live...That wasn't in God's plan...As soon as I went into remission I asked the doctor if we could have another baby...I always knew he was meant to be...In 2005, I miscarried...I prayed that if I wasn't to have another that God would take that desire away from my heart...But he didn't! I learned through it all that it is in God's time..Not mine...In 2006,  2 1/2 weeks after my 40th birthday, I gave birth to Timothy "Luke"...My first words I whispered to him when they handed him to me were "I have waited so long for you!"....I was at 4 years remission and our family was now complete....His smile and laugh lights up my heart everyday! He is a constant reminder of God's grace and that God gave me my heart's desire! HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sweet 11 year old!!!

My "Jenny Day"...Thank you, Lord, for another October 27th! Thank you for 51 years! Last year, Taylor and I came to the old train depot and she took my picture for my 50th...Today, I spent the day as usual with my husband, Tim...So today at the old train depot we just happen to find this "Queen Bee" that some random person had previously written...Fitting for the day, so Tim wanted to take my picture in front of it..And if you notice it says "J + T" at the top...Perfect for Jenny + Tim...The writing was waiting just for me....💙 I am so blessed!

I took a "Jenny Day" yesterday and spent the whole day out antiquing and I took a cookie break with my daughter, Taylor, at Jason's Deli...I had not done that since last October...It was fun and the housework was still waiting on me..lol...But we all survived! I need to do it more often!
