A New Category for This Month!!

I know that spring is a long way off, but it doesn't stop me from thinking about it. And so, I  added a new category above. For the next two months, I will be adding quotes especially chosen for January and February.


**I hope that I have given you something to think about today! Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Today's Quote About Home..


Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.

Margaret Thatcher

I always thought that a woman should run countries... it just makes sense!

I Broke It...

No coffee can be good in the mouth that does not first send a sweet offering of odor to the nostrils. 
Henry Ward Beecher

And what did I do?? I dropped my coffee decanter and it broke. It looks like 2015 will be starting off with a new carafe!  And he's right about  the scent of coffee. Even my daughter agrees and doesn't even drink it!!

A New Kind of New Year's Resolution

Instead of making a New Year's Resolution that you will probably ignore after a few weeks, why don't you instead, take a little time to look over the past year and see what you accomplished. You might have done more than you thought and in the coming year, try to do even more!


For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”
 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Can you hate winter but love snowflakes?

      And then there is the little song... Suzie Snowflake. And yes, I'm humming it to myself right now.

“Like snowflakes, the human pattern is never cast twice. We are uncommonly and marvelously intricate in thought and action, our problems are most complex and, too often, silently borne.”
 Alice Childress

    “Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake...”
 Francis Bacon,

       “Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand.”
 Henry David Thoreau 

Lets color a snowflake... not us silly. I found this snowflake on a grandparents site. Unfortunately, my granddaughter lives a long way away, but I might send her the link anyway! :) 

It won't be long before all of our Christmas decorations are quietly packed away until next year, but I thought that this Snowflake fairy would look cute and she could make us feel better until spring arrives. Check out the instructions... they are quite simple but the end result is quite effective.

How to like freezing drizzle!

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” Frederick Keonig

We have freezing drizzle right now... I'm having a hard time appreciating it right now.  Maybe I could be happy that I'm warm and cozy inside and Elton John is on the radio???? 

Losing happiness

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I'm not exactly angry, but I'm not in a good mood either. I think that it's the weather and the fact that Christmas is behind us. I used to get excited about New Years Eve, but I'm usually asleep before it arrives. I think I'm in a rut! Is anyone else feeling this way? Perhaps I should take this quote to heart. I have already lost an entire morning of happiness... I don't want to lose any more.

 Do you know how old you will be on your next birthday?? It seems to be getting harder and harder to remember. Maybe it's just that I don't care ;)
