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

Outside my 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 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 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 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] 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....

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
