Plans for my blog

Okay, well I have been trying to organize myself and figure out exactly what I want my blog to be. So, I have decided that starting on Monday I will begin posting my creations as well as all of my prim items and decorating ideas. Hmmm.... so
Monday will be Monday Morning Makeovers" that I have done;
Tuesdays will be "Tips and Tricks"; crafting, homemaking, organizing, etc!
Wednesdays will be the ever popular "Whatcha working on Wednesday",
Thursdays will be "Thrifty Thursdays" where I will show various ideas for living a thrify life as well as fabulous thrift purchases, etc
Fridays will be my Friday Family Menu Planning... which I do every Friday anyway. I actually plan a monthly Menu plan, but Fridays I plan my weekly groceries, Farmers Market Trips, etc. I will post weekly menus with recipes~ another favorite of mine!

And, God willing, Saturdays and Sundays... if gotten to will be a hodge podge of everything. I hope you enjoy my plan. I am finally looking so forward to this! Now, I have to figure out my blog design. :-)

Prim Blessings,

What a day...

Today has been incredible~ you know how when someone says "it can't get worse" and you cringe? That's the day we have had. My poor 16 year old daughter tried out for volleyball which she has played for the 7 years and gound out last night that a girl who was injured last year in basketball and CAN NOT play this year got the last and remaining varsity spot! My DD was the only junior on JV! She spoke with the coach this am and she was less than sypathetic and said what's done is done! I absolutely despise high school sports politics and they are worse the smaller the town!

This reminds me of something my grandfather always said... God created the country, Man created the city and the Devil created the small town! How I miss grandpa!

On a better note, my mother went to the oncologist today, and so far so good. She had 2/3 of her tongue removed 3 weeks ago. I was afraid I would never hear her voice again... but she is speaking and her spirits are fantastic! God is good!

That's all for now...

25 ways to be HAPPY!

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the Ultimate anti-depressant.
2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Talk to God about what is going on in your life. 3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'Mypurpose is to __________ today. I am thankful for______________'.
4. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
5. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.
6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
7. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.
9. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
11. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
12. You are not so important that you have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
13. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
14. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
16. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'
17. Forgive everyone for everything.
18. What other people think of you is none of your business.
19. GOD heals everything - but you have to ask Him.
20. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
21. Your job won't take care of you when you are in need. Your friends, following God’s directionswill. Stay in touch!!!
22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
23. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: I am Thankful for __________. Today I accomplished _________.
24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.
When you are feeling down, start listing your many blessings. You'll be smiling before you know it.
