Start Where You Are

I love this quote!  It can apply to so many areas of my life.  I strive to use what I have and do what I can do. Right now I have some areas in my home that need my attention.  I have purged on a regular basis, but am needing to purge even more, I think.  We did get rid of our garage refrigerator.  That was hard.  We buy a lot of food for five people each week, but it was getting old and didn't keep things frozen during the winter months.  Still it was nice to have the refrigerator side working for extras.  We are not planning to buy another one.  I worked hard to get some organizing of our kitchen refrigerator done.  It is looking great.  It is still a squeeze, but doable.  And I like having a less cluttered garage.  It is always a work in progress in there.

Found Treasure

This past week, I went to three thrift stores looking for spring shirts for my boys.  I found a little more!  I really enjoy thrift stores.  But you do have to go with an open mind, and be prepared to hunt for what you need at several stores.  I usually tack on a thrift store outing with another errand, so that I am not wasting gas.  I regret the early days of my marriage when I thought thrift stores were tacky.  Oh the money I threw away!!!

Hodge Podge

These three pictures that I saw on Facebook really spoke to me,so I thought I'd share them here.

I love, love, love chickens!!

This old house has everything I like, a porch, symmetry, and a tin roof.  Amazing that it is left to rot.
