For Today
September 13, 2017

Looking out my window

I confess, this was taken in August, but it's so beautiful, and 
I really needed a rainbow today.

I am thinking
Way too much going on up there to share, 
need to do a brain dump.

I am thankful
That our oldest grandson got out of Irma's path and his family was able to return safely and only to have downed limbs, and fence panels to deal with-well that and no electricity. 


One of my favorite things
Some days just showing up is half the battle.

I am creating
Memories, always and forever, moment by moment, one hug, one kiss,
one smile, one tear at a time.

Oh, and these...


I am wearing
What I chose to dress myself in, I'm an adult, I can wear what I want.

Sorry for the "snarky" coming through, 
I'm wearing work out clothes because they 
are comfortable, and I liked the color.

I am listening to
A playlist on spotify (I just downloaded the app to listen to it)
created by Ashley @ashley.beaudin
who has started a movement called #theimperfectboss on IG.

These young women are fantastic, they are campaigning to celebrate your imperfections.
I'm humbled by their honesty, and as a mother and grandmother just want to wrap each one in my arms and say "How very brave you are"! 

I am hoping
That the heart of what these young women are revealing catches on, being real, being open, embracing each other "warts and all" as my generation says.  We need to realize that imperfect should be "I'm Perfect just as I am" and impossible should be "I'm Possible" (Audrey Hepburn).

I am learning
That being 50 does not have to mean I can't learn new things, it's just a stepping stone in a wonderful journey.  AND that I can listen to at least some of this newer music, truth be told, I'm enjoying it!

In my kitchen
Getting ready for a weekend of primitive (pre-1840) camping, IOW unplugging!

In my garden

My new favorite product
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/444449056961919022/
Yes, I'm in Direct Sales, yes I'm sharing a product I sell, I'd love your feedback
on this one, no purchase necessary. 

From the Office

Yes, sometimes my office is my bathroom.  
Learning how to post and share how-to's for my home based business.  
I guess it's true, "You're never too old to learn something new"!

You are enough, God does not call the equipped, He equips the called,

Just this month I did a series of organizing over on my VIP page.  I'd really love to share one more.

I've spent YEARS trying to get organized and then stay that way.  I'm October of '15 I remarried, he's a wonderful man, and more importantly he's my best friend.  That wonderful event meant regrouping and reorganizing, which also meant downsizing.  It's been almost two years now, and I'm nearly to the goal of not having to move anything to get to something else.

Blessings,
Valerie

Extra help organizing on a budget.

For Today
August 24, 2017

Looking out my window

I am thinking
That with all the rain we have had this spring and summer, 
we very well could not only actually have a fall,
but a very beautiful one.

I am thankful,
for all the blessings bestowed upon me,
but mostly for my husband, who is also my best friend.

One of my favorite things
cool, crisp days.

I am creating
a stock pile of things to take to our local Farmer's Market.




I am wearing
work out clothes.

I am watching 
When Calls the Heart.

I am hoping
To be able to find a good supply of Arkansas Black Apples,
to make pie filling and apple butter with.

I am learning
How to use the fancy stitching on my new sewing machine.

In my kitchen
A tad bit of a mess right now, it'll be there when I get to it.

In my garden
Just some flowers and herbs in pots.

For Today
November 14, 2016

Looking out my window
The sun comes and goes, the few remaining leaves are hanging on for dear life, rustling branches, and rolls of hay in the pasture in front of our house.

I am thinking
How very blessed I am, I have a warm home, great friends and a healthy family.

I am thankful
For all of Gods blessings, especially hot cocoa on a chilly day.

One of my favorite things
Cuddly Kittens on crisp cool Fall Days.

I am creating
A Banner and new dress for Mountain Man Rendezvous camping (everything is pre-1840)

I am wearing
Jeans, a Thermal shirt, and a warm sweater.

I am reading 
Reading the Book of Job, in the Bible

I am hoping
That my simple post finds anyone who may read it well.

I am learning
To be a bit more gracious in my speech and action, while a bit of salt can be good, it can also burn.

In my kitchen
Not much right now, just 2-3 dishes in the sink.  But getting ready for some sloppy joe's on home made buns!

In the school room
Just me now....
Learning how to effectively and efficiently work my home based business on social media!
