Blogs and Spring

I have been checking out some incredible blogs of late. Let me tell you these Ladies have truly "Got It."

Pictures and instructions, and wonderful thoughts and dreams all over the place. Reminds me of the good 'ol days when I stayed home with my children. I was a housewife and mother exclusively until my daughter was 15 and the youngest at five started school. Let me tell you after two weeks in that house alone, I was ready to find a job.

But back in the day we didn't have computers or blogs to help entertain me and surely not enough money to go around with 3 kids in school. I was a thrifty shopper and made a lot of my daughter's clothes and a few things for the two boys.

But it was time to go to work, to entertain me and help with the finances. It has been many years later and almost time for me to retire and I see so many things out there that I want to try, but I still remember those two weeks 28 years ago when I did everything I had been wanting to do around the house and was looking for another outlet.

My husband wants to work a year or more after I retire, so there you go "What Am I Going to Do?" Well for sure I will get back to writing, and after visiting all these Blogs I'm going to do some creative decorating, and shopping for bargains that I can redo.

So many ladies out there to inspire me.

Many Blessings

I saw you follow Whimsy by Victoria, and my favorite cousin is named Audrey, so thought I would stop by. I agree Victoria has fantastic ideas, and tips. I also like the post below this one about a light shining in tough times. That is so true, we all have our trials and tribulations in this life, but it is how you handle them that matters. Have a wonderful day and a Happy Easter…..~Cathy~
