~* I want to live a simple life*~

Oh, sometimes life is so complicated. How I wish things could be so simple, like in this photo. I have been purging so much junk from my home for some time now. Getting rid of all the stuff I don't use, clothes I don't wear, decorations I don't use. I like the feeling of a de-cluttered life and home. Now if I could just get my husband on board. He is a bit of a pack rat. He saves everything. "There may be a use for this or that, I may need this later" he will say and so he saves things. His workshop is a mess. But when he needs something it is there. I just don't think it is worth it to save .28 cents. But he does and so he saves things. I like things neat. So I don't like the workshop. But I love him, so I deal with the messiness. But some day it would be nice if it were neat. I like things in their place, and I think he could put things in their place if he had the time to do it, then he could find the things he needs or is looking for. I would love to live like a pioneer, when people didn't have so much, and everything they had, had a purpose. That would be such a simple joyful life!

Have a great day!

~* I need some craftin' time*~

I have been so busy lately I haven't had time to do anything. Sooo many meetings, so many other things to do outside the house. I haven't even looked at my sewing machine! And it has been so cold that I haven't even thought about starting my garden seeds. But since the parade is done for the year and my meetings have slowed down I started to look at all the pictures of crafts I have saved on my computer and I started thinking of all the things I want to get accomplished this year. I can hardly wait for the weather to get warmer so I can start working on the garden and yard, and we are going to build a pergola over the patio. We've already had our mason back to have some rock walls built. Can't wait for the weather to turn!!!!! The crafting wheels are turning.....
Have a great day!

~* I've been so busy *~

I have been a busy bee!!! I can't believe it's been since January since I posted. I have been up to my ears with planning my City's St. Patrick's Day parade. Now, it's all done, but the marching! I sent the program to the printer last Friday, all the planning is done. All I can do now is hope for the best! So, I thought I would stop in and read some of my bloggy friends blogs. Sorry I have been so absent! I can't wait to get back to crafting and gardening and photography and decorating! I feel like I have been on another planet! Soon I will have my days free again. I am lucky to be able to volunteer my time for worthy causes, but they do take up so much of my life. And with spring right around the corner I want to get to the store and get some flower and veggie seeds, so I can get them started.
Well, I'm off to do some ironing.
Have a great day!
