Happy beautiful Saturday morning.

I hope the sun is shining where you are.

I’m on my second cup of coffee and it’s not even 8:00am yet.  There’s a big day ahead full of baseball games and room makeovers and making a pallet wood project and sanding wood floors and trying out this hair tutorial and a new tube of red lipstick for concession stand duty.


Good times.

And this….


Here’s one of my favorite new blogs, A Piece of Rainbow.

    I already joined so I'm planning on seeing lots of you there. And I've got some exciting news!! These snowbirds are departing tomorrow and bring some warm weather up through Kentucky to Indiana. Psst!! Over here -- I have to whisper -- I hope so because we promised our kids. They said they're sick of cold weather. We're keeping our fingers crossed it works. Have a great weekend. May I see your new red lipstick?? Does it match your toes? And do you have your flip flops ready?

    Karianne, LOVE getting your email when you've posted on your blog. Your kids are adorabl and your stories hit ever too close to home sometimes. The new app is a great idea! However, it will not work on my older Apple device as it is designed for iOS 7 and up. SO BUMMED. Wish developers would stop leaving out those of us who can't afford to upgrade to the newer, better, faster, yadda, yadda yadda.

    Thank you for the link to the blog about timely !! Today is my mom's 84th birthday, and for the last 7 years she's been in a nursing home with Alzheimer's. How perfect that I would read something that was so similar to how she raised me and my 3 siblings. On her birthday. Thanks for preparing me for the path, Mom and thank you, Kari Anne for sharing the post for me to read. It was a gift.

    Would love the B Home app, but appears to leave out all of us "Android" folks. ... Update us if that changes !! :) Enjoy hearing from you and seeing your lovely part of country. Very different from our part of Upstate NY that still has a foot of snow in the front yard... Your projects allow me to tell my Husband that the pile of barn wood and boxes of vintage hardware will be used someday !! Lol ! Take care ♡
