A Little of This and a Little of That



Sharing a bit of color from the archives today.  We continue with the cloudy, cold, and dreary weather.  This week just confirms that I would not be a good candidate for living in Seattle.  

If you need a good belly laugh today, and who doesn't, check out these fine Southern Ladies.  They just might lay a few chuckle-worthy sayings on you.  

I don't really blog about work, but I will say that I have started using these in my 2nd grade classroom this week.  It has been interesting thus far :) 

If you like making products from scratch, then you need to check out this lady.  I have made a batch of the fabric softener and it has worked out great.  Much cheaper than regular store-bought.  

Several pre-teen girls will be spending the night at the farmette this evening.  

Y'all pray for me now....ye hear?

  1. I think the dreary winter peaks on purpose right at the end to remind us how glorious spring might be-

    Good luck to you on the sleepover :-) And cheers to you for making fabric softener and trading a few desk chairs for the exercise balls.

  2. I am so happy to see bright vibrant color, thank you! I am looking beyond my sea of white and searching for the color of Spring. One can only hope! I'm off to check out the Southern Ladies. Greetings, Julie.

  3. That's a welcome bit of color on a dreary winter day! I'd love to hear what you think of the exercise balls- Some of my little guys could probably use them as well. :)

  4. Oh, my, good luck with the sleep-over. You will have as much fun as the pre-teens, I'm sure.
    We, too, are still dreary but with way too much snow and ice. It looks like you are beginning to see hopes of spring...now~~~

  9. I swapped out my chair for an exercise ball, but I can never find it because the kids steal it. I can't imagine turning a bunch of 2nd graders loose with them. Dodge ball comes to mind. :)

  14. Nice pop of bright color to cheer up this dreary day (near Seattle - need I say more?) I will pray for you, a house full of pre-teens trumps a dreary day in Seattle any day. xx

  16. I'll have to check out both blogs. I agree about the weather. One more week and then it is supposed to start warming up some. Can't wait.

  17. I bet the sleepover will be a resounding success!. I am interested in the exercise balls. Do the kids settle down after the excitement and fun of "bouncing"
    I like the idea.

  18. Beautiful color! Good luck with the sleepover, teen girls can be a handful!

  19. I didn't even know you taught second grade. Cool!

  20. Beautiful patch of color. Ah...the 'ol excerise ball! I bet that's been interesting/amusing to watch. You must have a lot of patience. Speaking of which, good luck with the slumber party.

  21. I'll skip on the easy wordplay in Italian (and probably in many other Languages) about sitting on balls, but the idea is not bad at all!

  22. I love that photo! I am dreaming of spring color on this dreary day. I would never make it in Seattle either!

    Best of luck tonight :)

  23. I do sympathized with you reguarding the weather, you are right about Seattle, the weather can be a bit challenging at times.

    I have had those girl, pre-teen, sleep overs....I will be praying for you for sure! xo

  24. My preteen girls, those I used to spend time with, not my own, have all grown up now, so please enjoy them while you can.

  25. I miss the days when preteen and later teen girls hung around my house.

    That didn't come out right . . .

  26. Thankfully they're staying on a Friday night -- allows you to sleep in or take a nap tomorrow after a fun night of what we used to call a pajama party. barbara

  27. I had to laugh at your comment about moving to Seatle. My cousin left the Twin Cities and spent a year there before ending up in Portland. He said it rained practically ever day so the weather was dreary and the people depressed....

  28. No one will get any sleep, but there will be tons on smiles and giggles. :)

  30. My dad asked for some pictures of our pets for something for his business. I totally suck at photography and I thought of you and the beautiful photographs you post on your blog. I am jealous.

    Sending you loads of warmth from India, have a nice day Michelle :)
