In case you didn't notice, that would be one a day for the next year, if I get started tomorrow!

It's Boy!

Remember I told you a while back that I'm going to be a Grandma?

Well today, we found out that it is going to be a BOY!
Can't wait!  Ansley's due date is September 23, so she's almost half- way there. She and baby are doing well. Please continue to pray that her UC meds will not adversely affect our little boy.

They have been able to come up with plenty of Girl names, but no Boy names, so I know she would love to hear some of your ideas. They are looking for an old fashioned name vs. trendy. Of course I am not sure that they are not all somewhat old fashioned after looking on the internet at name ideas.

Ansley surprised me with a short visit this weekend. She just needed a dose of her Mama. She shopped my house, and took back several odds and ends to add to her decor. That is the best kind of shopping! We had fun, ate out, groomed Chloe, visited with some friends she used to work with, had a good day at church, and before we knew it, it was time for her to go.

Have a blessed week, and let's hear those baby names!

YES, I am still here.
YES, I do realize my blog has been pretty Boring lately!
 YES, my life is pretty ordinary these days.

Yesterday it was far too beautiful to be inside, in front of a computer screen, or even doing the much needed housework! This view was much better, and  I did get my 5 blueberry bushes planted. The weather here has been absolutely beautiful!

Tonight was a great evening to watch a ballgame.

My nephew plays college ball. When they play at home, it is about a 45 minute drive for me.
 He pitches and it has been a tough season, so I want to be there to support him whether he plays or not.
 I also got a nice surprise! I was not expecting my sister to be there, but she made the drive with her husband, because he had said he might be pitching tonight, and she didn't want to miss it.  He did, and they won with a homer in the bottom of the 9th!

Just a few of the little things God has blessed me with. What are some of the ways He  has blessed you this week?

Thoughts for Thursday

A while back I picked up this little book at the Thrift Store.
Today while having my quiet time, I read some of it for the first time, and thought I would share with you.

I search for some sense in life.
I look for some tomorrow
when I shall see.
And know.
And then life shall be so much more meaningful.
But what I've got is today.
I see dimly.
I know little,
and life is very ordinary.
So I wait for tomorrow, dreamily,
and thumb-twiddle away my today.
Vague anticipation of my own spiritual fulfillment
robs me of the only day that is truly mine.
Lord, God,
you have called me to live in the now.
Air castles and ambiguities aren't for real.
Life is.
If this were the only day I had on earth,
what would I do with it?
This is the only day I have right now.
I dare not waste it.
Lord, keep me keenly, sharply aware
of the immediacy of my living.
Keep me vitally awake this
this day.

Recycling Garden Style

It was an absolutely beautiful day today so I did a little planting, actually a little cleaning out pots and planting. I thought I would share a few things that made it through our unusually cold winter, and I am in hopes that they will grow as abundantly as they did last year.

Little shoots from my spider plants.
 I stuck these in the pot at the end of the summer, and they made it.
I pulled all of this from the pots,

this is what I have now.
Next week I will be dividing these.
You will not believe the roots under these tiny little plants.

Oak Leaf Hydrangeas
 These came from a neighbor's plant that had lots of new shoots and she was willing to share with me. I will probably be collecting a few more of these, because the blooms make beautiful flower arrangements. What economical gardening tips do you have to share? Hope you are enjoying Spring as much as I am.
Have a blessed Easter.
