Happy Easter

 I am trying to post at least once a month. I sure did wait to the last minute this month. I hope everyone had a Happy Easter. I cooked a ham and all the trimmings. The Easter Bunny stopped by and left the girls a bag of goodies. I guess you never get too old for the Easter Bunny.

Well, I did it! I've been saying for over a year I want a new sofa and I finally decided on what I wanted it's here and I love it. I love all of my country/prim decor but I needed a change. I was going for a more cottage beach look. I so wanted the white denim furniture but in the real world it would be too much up keep. So I went with the blue denim. It's all slip covered and can be washed it needed. I painted my furniture pieces white and then there are my many baskets. I am still in the process of decorating. Changing styles on a budget can take some time. I'm still trying to decide what I want to put on my big wall behind my sofa. When I get it all together I will post pictures.

Still trying to move. Not sure where we will end up or if we will stay. I keep telling myself if it's meant to be than it will happen. Work is still work nothing exciting. I keep hoping for some kind of positive change. Some days I feel so overwhelmed with work bills and missing Ray. It was about this time three years ago I was on cloud nine. We found this house and it was affordable and just enough room. We were so excited because we had been at my Mom's for about a year. It was nice to know we could have our own space and our things out of storage. Ray would come and paint while the bathroom was being redone. We were supposed to move in May but we were pushed back until June. If I could have any wish of course it would to be to have Ray back but most of all that happy feeling. Well, I will try to post sooner next time and with pictures!

Hi Donna, I am glad you are doing somewhat better. I know it is not easy. Sounds like you are being careful and slow about future plans and that probably is good. One day at a time. Still in my prayers.....

It sounds like you've made some good decisions with your new furniture purchase. I just read the story about you and am so sorry to hear about your loss. That cannot be easy! I hope things will work out for you in the end. Sounds like you've been through so much already.
