My Third Year Blogiversary

Happy THREE to me on the WP!

THANK YOU one & all who stop by to visit my humble home on WordPress.
You all make my day when I see your faces – or the ones that I imagine when your non-face gravatar – show up. :D

In celebration – I invite you to go back in time & visit one or as many of my past posts that you’d like.

You can click on the RoRandomizer  (located on the right-hand side of my blog) & have Fenway (my pooch) take you to a random post.
Or – you can click on one that I’ve selected below.

Costco Construction

There’s a Costco being built just outside my neighborhood.
Last weekend as the girls & I were heading out to make a Dollar Tree run – we noticed a helicopter nearby.
At first I thought it was heading to the hospital.
Upon closer inspection I realized that it was at the Costco.
So- I made a U-turn & headed back home to fetch my camera.
And – I caught a few shots of men at work.

RoArt – Spring Flowers

Hi Peeps-

Hope all is well with everyone.
Before I get to my post – I was wondering if any of you that follow Skye at Sanctuary of My Heart or Oh, The Things We Shall See have heard from her recently?
I haven’t seen her post or visit since October.
I know that she was frequently on the WP & when she was going to be away – she’d mention it.
I’ve tried contacting her & no response from her.
I’m just hoping that she & her family are well.


Just over a week ago, Sylvia shared a post that included a painting that she was working on. I commented & mentioned that I had worked on something recently.

So – today I share with you MY SPRING MASTERPIECE!


 As inspired by: Spring Flowers Vases 

Peeps 2015

Hi Peeps! ;)

This year the girls & I submitted a Peeps scene for a local Peeps event.
We didn’t place. But – we still have a chance with PEEPleS Choice.
Only time & votes will tell.

Anywho –
Regardless of the end results –  we had fun working on our pieces & can’t wait to enter again next year.

Love is truly priceless
Love gives life brightness

Love grants magical wishes


Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.
You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.

Capirotada – The Tradition Continues

Randy’s capirotada recipe

Last year I made capirotada for the first time.
Since it was simple & delicious – I decided to make this a yearly tradition in my household.
This year – Alexandria & Victoria helped me make it.
Once again – YUMMY!

Chalk Frog

Before the snow hit on Monday – we enjoyed a few nice days during the weekend. 

It was nice enough that Alexandria & Victoria spent some time out in the backyard. 

Here’s a piece of chalk art that put a smile on my face. Alexandria said that she drew it to go with the frog & toad theme that I have started in the garden area.

Ribbit, ribbit!


Spring Snow

It’s the first Monday of spring & it’s snowing. 😱

Here’s an image that I captured this morning from the window in my area director’s office.

You may think that it’s pretty. And – if we were anywhere between Thanksgiving & New Year’s Day – I would agree.  But – winter ended on Friday. And – this is unacceptable! I don’t care how common this type of weather is this time of the year in the Midwest. I will forever complain about it & even more so when we are officially supposed to be in a different season.

Ok – weather rant over.

Now – You all go & have a nice day & a wonderful week. 😊

The First Day of Spring

Not much to look at – but after a long winter – I was super excited when I spotted these tiny green leaves sprouting through wood-chips in the backyard.
