Hello everyone! I hope your
Spring has gotten off to a
great start.
The violets have popped out
in our yard. They always remind
me of my Mom. She always got
such a kick seeing them peek out
of the grass when Spring arrived.

 
This is our neighbor's tree, so
pretty!

 
The Maple in our back yard is going
to drop those lovely "helicopter"
pods soon.


One of the tree in another neighbor's
yard.

I meant to get a pic of our Forsythias
but did not, they are so pretty with
their yellow blooms but I don't think
that is going to last long because I
noticed some green popping out this
afternoon when I came home.

Spring break did not last long enough! :)
I did get some stuff accomplished though
plus I had lunch with a friend and did lots

of reading.
It has been tough getting back into the
routine this week but two more days and
we'll have a weekend.

Our weather has been sooooo weird .
We went from the 80's over the weekend
and air conditioning to 50's today and heat
during the nighttime. We need some rain
badly too.

I was hoping to post some pics of projects
that I had planned to do but was not able
to do the projects. They involved spray
adhesive and it was too windy this past
weekend to do them. Once I get them
finished I will post them.

I hope everyone is well.

Hello!
I am back and feeling sooooo
much better!

It is Spring Break week and I have
been getting a lot done. Lots of things
are behind so I have been hitting the
floor running. Of course not everything
will get done but we have weekends to
work on stuff.
How is your spring cleaning coming?



Don't forget to wear your GREEN on
Friday. Watch out for the Leprechauns!!


Better get some rest, tomorrow will be
another busy day!

Happy International Women's Day!

There is so much going on all around
us and since today was your day, I hope
you were able to celebrate YOU!

I hope this is the last update on this
dang illness that we have had.
We are sooo close to being well again.
Just a few more days and I think we
will have beaten it. Thanks for your
patience with this.

My Spring Break is coming up next
week and I am planning to get A LOT
done--hopefully. I will just be glad to
get away from school for a week and
get some rest!

Mr.Ken is doing well. He saw the Dr
today and she gave him good report!

We had major weather in the KC metro
area on Monday night. We did not have
any damage but neighboring cities did. 
Very scary weather for March. The kicker
here is that we are supposed to have snow
on Saturday! Go figure.

Don't forget to set your clocks forward
on Saturday night.

Anyone into March Madness?? We watch
a little but not big fans. We are waiting for BASEBALL!!!


That is pretty much where we are at. Hope
all is well with everyone.

Friday Frenzy

 


March has arrived. Unbelievable!
Hope everyone is doing well.

January was rough and February
ended with Mr. Ken and I both
being sicker than dogs! Mr. Ken
had the B flu and I had a bad cold
with some respiratory back up.

I do think we are on the mend,
it is just so slow though! If you
get this stuff RUN do not walk
to you DR!!!




Happy Weekend!

Do something fun!!

Hello Everyone, yes it is me. The
absent blogger--I must apologize
again. Just WAY too much to keep
up with right now.
The journey jar is being filled again
this month as best we can.

If anyone is out there, let's catch up. 
I want to say a BIG THANK
YOU to Leslie at Dandelion Sprinkles
and her creative Valentine's elves for
helping out with the Valentine Card
Shower this year.


They did an AWESOME job!! Combined
with my cards we had over 70 cards that
were sent to Children's Mercy Hospital
in Kansas City Mo.


All the cards were packed and ready to
be sent to hopefully brighten a few kids
day.



Sunday was the day we celebrated. We
enjoyed a nice brunch in the late morn-
ing and then went to the Old Red Bridge 
to check on our lock.
If you remember from last year, Mr. Ken
and I took a lock out to the bridge and
locked our love there. It is tradition that
couples do on Valentine's Day.


Off we go to look for our lock. I must con-
fess, I was getting a little nervous because
we weren't finding it but then we did.
Whew!!


There is it right in the middle of the
two silver ones. The writing has faded
but we could make out what we had
put on it in 2016. (We checked our pic
from last year) Some people add a new
lock each year so next year we are add-
ing locks for both our Moms.


A little look at our Valentine d├ęcor.





















Hope everyone had a SPECTACULAR
Valentine's Day!!

Update on Mr. Ken

He is doing GREAT! Doctor appointments
are fewer and far between now, which is
nice. He isn't missing so much work now.
He still has a couple of procedures later
on down the line but right now things are
moving right along.


Thanks for hanging with me!!

Happy February to all. I am
certainly glad to see a fresh
new month! Hope there are
a few of you out there and
you haven't given up on me! :)

 
Super Bowl 51 is this Sunday,
anyone have big plans? Ours
will be low key this year. Not
a big fan of either team so it
is hard to get geared up for it.
but we will still have some good
eats, watch the game and the 
commercials plus try and catch
part of the Puppy Bowl too.

 
Valentine's Day is on the way Mr.
Ken and I combine the holiday
with the next day because we still
celebrate the anniversary of our
first date. This year will be 19 years!
We have plans for brunch the Sunday
before.



Speaking of Valentine's Day, it is time
for the annual Valentine Card Shower.
If you would like to join me in making
some cards for the kids at Children's
Mercy Hospital here in town, please
let me know. The cards above were
made last year. I will need them by
NEXT FRIDAY--February 10th.
If you have questions, let me know.
This is a fun activity for scouts and
other groups too.
 
 
We have continued to have some
spectacular sunsets. This was
taken in late January. So pretty.

 
 
 

I did not pick a "word" for this year.
Partly because I couldn't decide on
one and then life jumped in. So
I decided to do a "Journey Jar."
Each piece of paper has something
on it that happened each day. ie:
"It was 60 today and the sun came
 out." The jar is emptied into a baggie  
at the end the month and we start fresh
with the new month.
At the end of the year we will read each
slip of paper to see what we did in 2017.


GROUNDHOG DAY is tomorrow --Will
he see his shadow???

Update:

Mr. Ken is doing great, progress is made
eachday. Work keeps him busy too.
He has a couple of big things coming up
so the continued prayers would help.

We would like the thank EVERYONE
for those prayers and good thoughts,
they are very much appreciated.

For those of you who are continuing to
hang with me and my erratic posting --
THANK YOU! I had so many things that
I wanted to do with Dreaming and I still
will but it may take a bit. We can't always
plan what comes down the road so I do
appreciate ALL of YOU!!
Keep on hanging with me.

Hello Everyone!!

It has been awhile since I was here.
As you can imagine it has been a
busy time for us.
Last time I posted, Mr. Ken was in
the hospital. He was there for 5 days.
Which to my surprise was much
shorter than I thought .
He is doing great and is minding his
Dr.'s also. He has a lot of work to do
but is willing to do it so that is half the
battle.
He went back to work yesterday and
did pretty well.  We would still appreciate
your good thoughts and prayers as we
mosey through this new journey of ours.

 
Since we were off on Monday and I actual
had time to do something fun and not
running here and there I changed up a
wall in our dining room. We call this the
"wedding wall" but since we have been
married for awhile I wanted to switch it
up a bit. The shadow box contains our
wedding program, my hankie, a penny,
my gloves and a blue ribbon that I attached
with an angel pin. The picture frame on the
far right has a picture of us on one side and
our wedding invitation on the other side.
Both are matted and I wrote our vows
around the mats.


This is the after picture. I took down the
shadow box, it will hang in another room.
I moved the left picture over and hung up
a new cross. A friend of mine makes these
and sells them at craft shows. I really like
how it turned out. Sometimes you don't
realize things need to be changed up till
you do the changing.

Thank you for your patience with my
absence in blogland. There is so much
going on and so little time to do every-
thing in.

I hope everyone is well and the creepy
crud has not got you.
