Happy National Dog Day - August 26th, 2020

Written by

In honor of “ National Dog Day,” I am sharing my brother's beautiful German Shepard Cinder Ella.

One of my favorite planners to keep track of my day-to-day is the Happy Planner I find at Michael's Craft Store.  Usually, their assortment of happy planners is huge, and the sizes of the planners vary from the very small purse size to bigger desk versions.  I am that girl who loves her a cute sticker and organizing things and when you put them together it becomes total happiness.

After taking my father in law to his doctor visit on Tuesday, I ran to Michaels to find my Happy Planner and saw that they were beginning to set up some Halloween, Christmas, and Fall Florals!!!

Here are a few photos of the items I saw. I didn't want to stay in the store shopping long as my husband was in the hot car waiting for me so I took only a few photos.
 
 

On a quick trip to the Dollar Tree today I saw the seasonal wall was now starting to get some fall-themed products added.  Here are a few photos from the small section I saw.

When our area finally moved into the yellow phase of quarantine a few weeks ago I wondered just what that would mean for area businesses around here...especially our mall.  Month after month of everyone staying indoors except for food shopping had turned my little town into a ghost town of sorts.  No one was outside.  Not for a walk, not in their yard. Not on the roads in the early morning hours.  Nothing.  For months.  We were under curfew from 8 pm until 6 am but you would expect to see...or hear something.

Nature | Blue Iris In A Garden

Written by

Blue Iris flowers in the garden today.

I have always wanted to buy a Bee Skep for decorating the inside of my home and my garden but if you are like me and have searched for them too you would see just how expensive they are, how hard they are to find, and how quickly they sell out when found.
 
Luckily, I saw a creative way to make a Bee Hive while saving a ton of money.  After trying it for myself I just had to share the "How To" of this project for other DIY Crafters.
 
 
I am reposting this posting of mine from April of last year as it is the perfect time to find these supplies in your Dollar Tree Stores to make this bee skeep for yourself.  You can use various sizes of flower pots to layer in this adorable look everywhere in your home decor.

Life Writing | The Perils Of Life In Nature

Written by

After yesterday's Earth Day posting, of the three beautiful brightly blue colored robins eggs, today's posting is not a happy one. 

On my walk to the garage this morning to put away some of the last remnants of Christmas I saw a blue egg laying on the grass below the nest and my heart pieces sunk a bit.  Sure enough, the nest was raided overnight and the eggs are gone.  Darn Crows.

I am always in awe at how birds build their nests...WITHOUT HANDS.  And hopefully, the robins will get another nest made later this spring better hidden from their predators and I can see the baby littles scamper around my yard along side of the baby bunnies.  Currently, there are four large rabbits running around in my yard so their warren must be close by.

Happy Earth Day!

At a time when the world is chaotic, it is the simplest of things that remind us to smile for the little things and know tomorrow will be better.
