Blog Challenge





Hello All!

Popping in to let you know that I am 
taking part in a blog challenge. For 
the month of April I will be posting 
everyday except on Sundays.
My theme will be Educational related. 
Imagine that. :)
I will cover a variety of topics relating 
to the field of Special Education plus 
I'll throw in some songs, art and books.
My goal is that my readers will learn 
something that they didn't know and 
pick up ideas that can be passed on to 
those they know that might be able to 
use them.

I promise that we will have fun!!!



First post will be on April 1st--stay tuned.

The Weekend




Good Evening my friends!
I hope everyone has had a 
nice Good Friday.




I can't believe that Easter week-
end has arrived! It just doesn't
seem time for it. I am not big on 
Easter in March. When it is in 
April there is a bit longer to plan 
for the big day. 
What about you?




Mr. Ken and I would like to wish
everyone a blessed Easter. May it
be filled with the blessings of the
the day and filled with family, 
friends, food, fun and fellowship.

Spring Break This and That




So, while I have been on Spring Break
I got a bit crafty.

I wanted some St. Patty's plates but 
could not find any so I made my own 
from plates from the Dollar Tree.




I just used a Sharpie to write each 
saying on the plate. I added gold 
dots in the shamrock for some 
bling.




For this plate, I found an Irish saying.
I was very pleased with these.




Found this cute garland at JoAnn's. 
Thought I could just hang it up but 
noooo, I had to string the darn 
thing first. Pretty cute huh?




So, if you remember my yarn heart 
from Valentine's, this will look 
familiar.
I cut out my version of an egg (it 
got squished) bought some 
variegated yarn in spring colors 
and started wrapping it around 
my cutout.
I added some eggs for bling and a 
ribbon then hung it on the front 
door. Cutting out eggs from card-
board is not easy.

Here is the Misc. I am so happy 
with it.
For those who did not see this on
Facebook, one of the gals that
I work with is beginning to down
size her home and she was giving
away several pieces of furniture.
Yes, I said giving away.
I am the happy recipient of this
little beauty.




Above is a daytime shot. On top I
have a poured sand sculpture from
Arizona and a statue from New Mexico.
The other item is a flower ball that my
Mom gave me years ago.I am not really
sure what it is made from though.




This is a nighttime shot, love the light 
on the inside.
On the top shelf I have two tea sets
from my Mom and one from a friend
plus a teacup. I collected them along 
time ago but have since stopped.
The second shelf has two figurines 
from when Mr. Ken and I got married, 
a quartz rock from a vacation and my 
"Welcome" house blocks.
The "floor" of the cabinet holds a
picture 
of  Mr. Ken's parents, one of us 

and one of my Mom.
So happy to have this fun addition to our
living room and to think I got it for FREE!!

Wearing O' the Green





Happy St. Patrick's Day!
(a wee bit early)

Wear green--so you don't get pinched.
Watch a parade.
Dance a jig

Enjoy the day!!

And of course, cannot leave without
some St. Pat's humor...

1. What do you get when you cross 
poison ivy with a four leaf clover?

2. What do you get when you do the 
Irish jig at McDonald's?

3.  What is Irish and stays out all 
night?

4.  How did the Irish jig get started?

5.  Are people jealous of the Irish?


Answers...

1.  A rash of good luck.

2.  A Shamrock shake.

3.  Paddy O'furniture.

4.  Too much drink and not enough
restrooms!

5.  Sure,  they're green with envy!

Spring Outing




Hello Everyone!

Spring Break is here and over 

the weekend we went to one 
of our favorite stores for garden
goodies. Potato seedlings and 
onion sets. Plus some dried 
spices. 
This store has everything a 
gardener would want and then 
some.





Down the street from Planters 

Seed is as the picture shows---
City Market, in the summer this 
is a rock'n place. Lots of vendors 
with fresh veggies and fruits.





Back at Planters Seed, customers

can get a start on their flower 
gardens too.













Some of the Spring fun in their 

windows.





Bessie is ready for the Easter parade

with her bunny ears on her head.





I think Peter was on the hunt for 

some carrots.





Around the corner, this cute place 

was calling...





So many choices.

Happy Birthday to a Special Guy




And that guy is Dr. Seuss!
A favorite from my childhood
and today.
All sorts of celebrating went on
today is schools and libraries and
many are learning who this 
fabulous man was and what he
did for the world of reading.



I could not have said it better 
myself.




Did you enjoy these books as 
child? have you read them 
to your grandchildren, nieces 
and nephews?

Which ones did you enjoy??


Some of mine are:

Hop on Pop
Greens Eggs and Ham
One Fish, Two Fish, Red
Fish, Blue Fish.

Such fun memories from
childhood.
