Sisters Forever part 1

Warning~Very scary, depressing bedroom...

In a few short days this space which is in a sad state since we gave my Mom her bedroom set back will be transformed into a shared space between 2 sisters 4 years apart.

We have ordered a Bedroom set from Rooms-to-Go (2 twin beds and 1 nightstand to go in the middle) which will be delivered this Wed.!

We have taken apart the built in tv stand the landlord left here as you can see from the soon to be filled in nail holes in the right hand corner. We are having the room painted and both girls have agreed on a Horse theme.

We have decided to turn this into a Blessing.

So I ask You for ideas on shared spaces between Sisters...this is a Journey we have never taken before since we have been lucky enough that the 3 kids have always had their own room. Do you have fond memories of sharing with your siblings or do your kids share a room today?

We have decided to stay here in this Rental for another year, searching for a house with land within 3 school systems was turning out to be a futile effort as there was not one house available within our time period.

The Landlady has decided to Lower the Rent, and let us update the house the way we prefer. All of which has made us very Happy this month!

Since we are staying another year, We have decided to have the girls share the biggest room and this will then leave one bedroom open for Husband to have his Office again. He needs one for those late night On-Call sessions and his Ham Radios.

Hummingbird Watch

Last week we saw 1 Hummingbird around our bird feeder and I kept meaning to put out Hummingbird juice for the little guy but kept forgetting due to work.

Tonight I made some and now we are on Hummingbird watch.

Do you think the little guy will come back and visit us?




I am going to run to the store and replace some Flowers but I'm not sure which Flowers enjoy full FL sun and I'm researching tonight.

Refreshing the Corners 2

I have been busy moving items around and tweaking here and there. My Fav vignette in the kitchen is the top of my fridge. Everything just seems to fit together rather nicely up there. My window sill has a nice start to a White dish collection.

I'm trying to decorate in more of a Cottage/Farmhouse but I'm not really sure how to start. Any ideas that you can share with me?

Exploring Ham

My Husband has had his Ham Radio License for some time now and today he finished his "Go Kit". Throw it in the back of his truck, head for the woods and throw a line up a tree and talk to people from all over. Just tonight in our backyard alone we talked to a gentleman across the pond, as they say!

As for house hunting we have put it on hold since Husband has to travel for work in July and we do keep getting disappointed in every house we look at. 

Husband had a nice Father's Day, he finished his project and I cooked a big dinner and we just relaxed outside, the simple relaxing day was good for us.

Have a Great Week my Friends!

Summer Time Fun!

School is out and so far no one has started to complain about how bored they are.

We had fun the other night with a Red Colander, a Flashlight and our ceiling in the living room. It was Abigail's idea and we danced!

So that's what we are doing so far, having fun and trying to enjoy this Summer while working full time, not an easy feat considering how tired I am when I get home.

This wekend was a good one, haven't had such a nice relaxing weekend in many months. I puttered and organized and have a huge pile to drop off at Goodwill. Richard was on-call so we could't travel far from the house which turned out to ne a Blessing since I got alot done. The kids played and had friends over and we had a small bonfire with S'mores...It was so hot outside but fun.

Still searching for another House but I'm decorating and organizing this one to make it more Cozy while we are still here, who knows at this point we might stay.

Have a Great week my Friends!

Last of the Band Concerts for the Year

We are so proud of Crystal!

The Auditorium was packed tonight for the last Band concert of the year! They have all worked so hard this year and nailed the ending theme from "Bat Man". Many hours of practice there!

Next year will bring new hurdles to jump thru but the end of this year has past without a hitch!

The other 2 are doing great, more of them in another post. Tonight is Crystals big night!

Tough Decisions...House Hunting

So our lease here is up in August and we are very much ready to move.



Our search is taking some time because we really want to keep our 3 kids in the same schools since all 3 are doing FAB!!!

House 1:


This is an older pic, there are houses built on either side today. This is in a Subdivision.

We took the kids to look inside last night and almost signed a lease on it, then we went out to dinner and the kids told us they hated it, it was just okay of an house.

I have to be honest too...as we were waiting for the realtor to show up I was getting less and less excited to live in a Subdivision again, I didn't get that "WOW" feeling about this house.

I think for me I have lost that decorating "Mojo" since leaving our house in OH.

The searching goes on....
