It’s an ugly day in paradise… and other things!

Outside my window..it is overcast, humid, and just plain yucky warm.  Welcome to Texas Spring.

Today I feel..good.  Still having a hard time with losing my Grandpa, but doing better on that score.

I am thankful..for my two little bundles of joy that make me laugh, and fill my evenings with joy.

Tomorrow I am going..to work, probably have to go grocery shopping too.

I am wearing..capris and a skimpy tank under a cotton button down shirt {open, of course}.

I wish..for my Grandpa back.

This weekend..I am working at a Horse Show at the Travis County Expo Center for one of my favorite people.  It is always a good time, with a generous dose of chaos thrown in, LOL!

I am reading..A Heart Most Worthy, by Siri Mitchell

I am working on..figuring out how to polish off my blog design so I am ‘happy’ with it, and will stop fiddling with it.

Yesterday I..worked, did chores, slept till my alarm clock went off, rather than getting up with Mr. SD {or getting up with Ms. T when she decides to get up with Mr. SD, however you want to look at it}.

I am hoping..to be able to do more horse grooming.  We are working on paying of Ms. T’s medical bills from a c-section delivery, and I earn extra income doing mane pulling and clipping.

I am hearing..fun music on Pandora.

I bet you didn't know..that I have stayed true to my No Fabric in April Pledge.  It’s been hard, but… it kinda goes along with the hoping comment above.  If I don’t spend money on fabric I have more to put towards the bills.

One of my [least] favorite..things to do right now is drink water.  I am using the Crystal Light packages to flavor my drinks.  My other least favorites is changing Ms. Diva’s diapers.

One of my [most] favorite..my baby girl!  Nothing smells better than a little, tiny bundle of joy.  It will be over way to soon, and then I will have two toddlers to try and keep up with.

What are you up to?  Join in the fun over at Murdock’s Momma.


  1. I didn't know you worked with horses???? Holly cow (sorry for the funny) - but heck girl YOU ROCK!! I am sorry for your sad heart - I got my sad heart this past Oct when my 94 year old grand mum passed on. Just 3 days before my b-day. I am sending a big hug out your way....


  2. It is super gross out! I just wish it would rain already and quit being ugly!
    April is almost over and that means more fabric buying :)

  3. I love the look of your blog. I am sorry about your grandpa. Mine has been gone for ten years and I still miss him.
    You are one busy girl. I never been around horses, but I think they are gorgeous animals.

  4. Sorry to hear about your grandpa...and lol to the blog design thing...I change something on mine just about every few days....

  5. I wish I was complaining about heat! It's been a cold week in Iowa! :( Yay for paying off bills, such a good feeling! Your blog is beautiful! Thanks so much for linking up!! MM


Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I love reading your comments, and enjoy returning the favor {even if it takes me a while to return it, LOL!}.
