$50 Your Way!! March 2019 Giveaway!

My monthly update includes snow. A lot of snow. PILES and PILES of snow. I’ll try to remember to take a picture next week of the piles in town. Some are taller than the 2 story apartment buildings!! DAT’s a whole ALOTTA Snow!!

Still going to physical therapy, except now it’s only once a month (When I can get out!!). Yup, the foot and lower back continue to hurt after the fall down the stairs way back in October. I do like actually seeing PEOPLE!! It’s so exciting! Last week I even managed to hit some thrift stores!

Crafts! I am on a roll. Finished a series of three Diamond Art canvases. I’m very pleased with the outcome.





I have my next one set up and ready to work. It’s a sunflower. I just love the colors.

If you aren’t in any hurry to get your projects I highly recommend AliExpress. Super low prices, free shipping. HOWEVER, it does take almost a full month for your items to arrive. For me the time isn’t an issue. I always have a backup project.

My regulars know I’ve had a rough time keeping this site updated, Mom’s passing just through me for a loop and I can’t seem to get and STAY motivated for a daily post. Soooooooooo I decided I am going to try (optimal word here is TRY) to post everyday for the month of March with pictures! So, that may get back into the swing of things. Let’s see if that works!

This months giveaway has the same exact spiel as last month and the month before and the month before that! The year before and well, you get the idea. For as long as this giveaway is popular, I’ll continue to do it. I am truly thankful and feeling blessed that you stop by. This giveaway is open worldwide for PayPal option only. (I’m not sure the other GC would work worldwide) This is a Giveaway that is hosted only by me. So, by coming back often and staying around for a while, looking at more than one page, really helps me. Of course, any extra clicks on advertisements is always appreciated!!

Good Luck little Peanuts!


  1. Going well! Getting ready for work and the weekend! 🙂

  2. http://Edye says

    I’m not craft and live far away, haha! Sorry I’m not artsy 😉

  3. Happy St. David’s Day to all Welsh people everywhere! I made up a little basket with flowers from the garden & moss for Mum. It looks just like a little garden and she loves it!

  4. As for crafting, does DIY count? No, seriously, I don’t really do anything other than flower arranging & does that even count as it’s not permanent?

  5. http://shelly%20peterson says

    My day is ok so far. I am getting reading to head to dialysis. 🙁

  6. I like to latch hook & bead loom.

  7. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Connie I do not craft at all unless you consider fancy cake decorating as such…I am all thumbs when it comes to any crafty thing….

  8. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Well it is March 1st new month…carnival festivities are in full swing as the weekend starts tonight… after many years of celebrating “on the road” give me a cocktail, the couch and the parade of the bands!!

  9. http://Leela says

    I do plastic canvas, cross stitching, crochet, painting.. Just about everything.

  10. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    I can’t believe it’s March. But I’m excited by March. I get to go home in March. FINALLY!

  11. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    Crafting? I like crafts. I start crafts. Then I get frustrated and start a different one, lol. So…I don’t finish crafts.

  12. http://Dana%20Rodriguez says

    I love counted cross stitch.. the really elaborate hard ones that take forever but that is about as crafty as I get. No I am on the other end of the country as in SC but I know you must be a blast to be around.

  13. http://Dana%20Rodriguez says

    It rained buckets today.. but that is what it does here in the winter. On the bright side it was warm and it is FRIDAY!

  14. http://Sarah%20L says

    Nope, no crafts. I’m a singer and volunteer. Happy March – it’s almost Spring (but you couldn’t tell from the weather report of snow for the next 3 days)

  15. http://Kim%20Pincombe-Cole says

    Having a goos day bc it’s Friday! So ready for Spring , but more snow is expected this weekend in the Great Lakes – boo!!

  16. http://Kim%20Pincombe-Cole says

    I’m somewhat artistic/crafty. I usually see something in a store or online and try to make it myself!

  17. http://Kristen says

    I do not currently do any crafts, but I’d like to learn mosaics and felting and real rug hooking.

  18. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    We like to do crafts scrap-booking and making jewelry too.

  19. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    We were inside today the weather is cooler. We have rain coming so it was day to watch old movies.

  20. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    It is pouring today!! Serious “umbrella won’t work” tropical rain….I feel sorry for the children for today is the children’s parade …. maybe my 8-9am it will let up…..have a great w/e all….

  21. Storm Freya is on her way so I’ll have to battle it into town to get Mum her meds. My cold finally seems to be lifting – yay me!

  22. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Well I am up earlier than I was wanting but glad its the weekend.

  23. http://Alison%20King says

    I’m enjoying a lazy Saturday, so far. Although, I wasn’t feeling so well this morning. Hoping to have a fun time this evening spending time with my hubby.

  24. http://Alison%20King says

    I do enjoy crafts. I used to make custom tumblers and sell them, but I have stopped for the time being.

  25. http://Ashley%20Trail says

    Today, I am having a pretty good day. It’s the weekend so I am enjoying my down time.

  26. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    I had a rotten morning, lol. I told them several times that I thought my IV line was coming lose. I had noticed leaking when it was going and there was some blood. Well, this morning they hooked up the antibiotic and boy, it hurt. The entire hour I was thinking about calling the nurse to take it out because it really hurt, but Bi gritted my teeth and did the hour. It was dark in here (6 a.m.) so I couldn’t really see my hand (where the IV is.) As soon as the thing finished and beeped, I hit the call button. The nurse was like, ‘Why is your hand so puffy??? I think we have an infiltration.’ (Apparently, that’s what they call it when the med goes where it shouldn’t.) It wasn’t going into the vein at all. It just filled up my hand! Now, I’m sitting here wondering how long it’s going to look like this. Geeze.

  27. http://heather says

    I love any craft that includes painting. Sorry I do not live close to you.

  28. http://Sarah%20L says

    Got up early to go to my friend’s house to feed her cats because snow was predicted. Got home before it started snowing but now it’s been snowing all day. I’m not going anywhere.

  29. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    Lots of rain today but still we went shopping which is always fun when we find wonderful things to buy which we did.

  30. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Well here we are my daughter and I on Dimarche Gras bundled up on the couch with the flue….I do not handle this well at all!!.Taking meds and lying around…where is my book?? Tea with honey, lemon and a shot of whiskey is next….

  31. Oh Michele, just pamper yourselves & feel better soon.
    Tamra: Dad had that happen to him in one of the most expensive private hospitals in Dublin & suffered nerve damage in his hand. They were just about to settle when he upped & died. Be very careful. Take photos & keep wiggling your fingers. Hopefully nothing permanent.
    Kate: I’ve just slept & slept but after nights of coughing & sneezing I really needed it. I’m heading into town later for a choral practise and it is absolutely bucketing down.

  32. http://Alison%20King says

    Just ate some breakfast: grits with cheese and sausage. Watching a new show on Netflix, Working Moms. Pretty funny.

  33. http://Sarah%20L says

    Brrr, Brrr, Brrrrr. Wind chill warning for -15 to -20 tonight. Been snowing lightly all day. Glad I don’t have anywhere to go. Current temp 8 degrees with -3 wind chill.

  34. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    Nice day to bbq had fun with the family today outdoors by the pool.

  35. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Here we are again….lying around with no energy and this flue will not leave…spent an awful night hacking and feverish…have to hope today is better…
    Tamra… hope your hand has settled down…what type of staff lets your iv become infiltrated…sorry but there is no excuse for that….
    Kate….stay dry!

  36. We’re singing at the opening of the regional 3-act play competition and it’s on Thursday of THIS week. Not next week as I had thought – agh! Time for some serious singing without actually using my croaky voice!

  37. http://shelly%20peterson says

    I am exhausted. I spent 30 hours at the hospital waiting for my grandbaby to come . She is here and is so beautiful.

  38. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    It was past 1 a.m. last night when the nurses finally got a new I.V. line in me…and by today, it was out. Lol, I’m just a hard stick…veins’ roll, they blow, they disappear. Today, about 5 nurses have tried. Finally, the director of nursing said she was going to call my doctor and see what he wants to do. Maybe, he’ll send someone from the lab. Sigh, it’s a good thing I’m not squeamish about needles.

  39. http://Alison%20King says

    This day has not been good. I have felt sick to my stomach all day long. It’s been awful. I’m really hoping I will feel better tomorrow.

  40. http://Sue%20E says

    I had a wonderful day with some of my grandkids.
    They had the day off of school, because of Cashmir Pulaski Day. Poor kids, it was too cold 🥶 for them to play outside.

  41. http://Sue%20E says

    I used to be artsy when I was younger and my hands worked better. My grandkids are. I don’t think I live near you at all – not with that beautiful scenery!

  42. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today has been a long day. I got to see my beautiful new granddaughter again so that was nice.

  43. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    We just stayed at home today and cleaned the kitchen nothing exciting today to do.

  44. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    This is insane still ill…only thing I am grateful for is reading all my magazines and papers that piled up and my books….went out quickly this morning and watered my veggies and they wanted t know along with the flowers where the hell I was?? Yes I do talk to my plants and they do answer…. Happy Carnival Tuesday all!

  45. Not a lot happening today … I’m a lot better though. I have to drive to Dublin & back later this afternoon & I might make some pancakes this evening for the day that’s in it, as we say here!

  46. http://Alison%20King says

    I’m still feeling sick today and had to call out of work. Hoping I feel better soon. For now, I’m just trying to take it easy.

  47. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    Went and had the PICC line put in my left arm today. It’s kind of a bloody mess, lol, but it’ll be easier to get the I.V. antibiotics I need. I’m ready to get this done and get home.

  48. http://Sarah%20L says

    Had a good SPARK program at the gardens this morning. The sign-up software is not working right so when we got there this morning it said we had 25 people coming. Turns out we had 4 people. whew.

  49. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Have to try and get back to normal today….this flue just hangs on and on….honestly I have no ambition and no motivation….the gallery divan looks so inviting…..

  50. It says ‘Speak You Mind’ but right now my mind’s blank with nothing happening between my ears that I’m aware of! Oh, wait a sec, go back to bed … my first thought of the day …

  51. It says ‘Speak Your Mind’ but right now my mind’s blank with nothing happening between my ears that I’m aware of! Oh, wait a sec, go back to bed … my first thought of the day …

  52. http://shelly%20peterson says

    My day is just starting so we will see how the day goes. Think I am getting a cold.

  53. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    I had a CT scan today. With contrast. They shoot that contrast in your vein, you smell something ‘burning’—then you feel an odd heating sensation that starts in your throat and works it’s way down until, I am not joking, you feel like you’re peeing!! Lol, you are not…but it feels like you are! They warn you beforehand, thank goodness. Just another day of weirdness.

  54. Hello Connie! I am going to try to enter again. It has been a long time but my life has been chaos. Now that things are starting to hopefully calm down. I can try and get back to my life. I have enjoyed reading your personal page. I hope you are feeling well after your fall.

  55. http://Diane%20Brimmer says

    I love to paint crafts and dabble in different holiday projects. It is a little something I can do for my grandkids and kids.

  56. http://Erin%20Ellis says

    My day is going awesome! It’s rainy, but hey, it could be snow.

  57. http://Alison%20King says

    My day is okay. I’m feeling a little better today, but still pretty tired.

  58. http://Sarah%20L says

    Good time at the pool with friends. Still miss teaching. Then a trip to Sprouts.

  59. http://Sue%20E says

    My day went great!! I got good news from the doctor!

  60. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was an ok day. I am just really tired.

  61. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    To Tamra.. all I can say is that you are in my prayers…may there be one excellent IV therapist to get a line in you that remains….Getting ready to go shopping this morning.. chemist for more cough meds and the feed and grain.. a few misc stops then the grocery…..hopefully I won’t go into a major hacking spell in the shoppes….

  62. Michele, will you get a cough bottle for me too? I only got about 4 hours sleep. Just tossing & turning all night. Just before I got up I had the weirdest dream: Mum was browsing an ‘adult’ catalogue and bought Dad something. When it arrived he held up the item: Giant golden silk boxers that were … wait for it … crotchless! Now where the hell did that come from and what could it possibly mean?

  63. http://Natalie says

    I love to draw pencil drawings if that counts as crafting, but I don’t live by you! My mom likes to do stained glass and paints.

  64. http://Natalie says

    I am having a good day so far! The roads are clear from snow but we are supposed to get more snow this weekend.

  65. I am so far from crafty, that gene skipped me. I will however, to save a few bucks, get creative when it comes spring & summer and upcycle bits & bobs for planting & plotting.

  66. http://Tiffany%20S says

    My day is going okay, I didn’t do much today but tomorrow will be a lot busier.

  67. http://Sarah%20L says

    Had my annual physical today. I’m in pretty good shape for 70.

  68. http://Sue%20E says

    I got my hair cut short and I love it 🥰
    Easier to take care of and it looks fuller!
    Plus it was very sunny out and I loved it’

  69. http://shelly%20peterson says

    I didnt have a very good morning. the roads were icy and my car spun out and I got stuck in a berm, luckily some one helped push me out.

  70. On my way back from our concert last night (we sang like animated angels!) I stopped for petrol & there was a young woman I hadn’t seen for 10 years. We used to work together but had lost touch, as one does. Well, we fitted those 10 years into 3 minutes as we held up traffic but forgot to swap numbers! I’ll search FB later to see if I can find her.

  71. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    About 6 last night it was decided I had to go to the E.R. to let them establish an I.V. line and give me my daily antibiotics. (PICC line still not working.) I was there until after 11. I hate hospitals. I’m fed up with this. Oh, and after they gave me the antibiotics, they took the line out!!! Why??? Geeze, just leave it and keep using it. But they said the doctor intends to fix the PICC line. I’ll believe it when I see it.

  72. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Kate hope you are feeling a bit better….Tamra I still cannot believe the hell you are going thru…..spent the morning baking churros and pecan shortbread cookies….should have done bread also but I needed to go and do some garden tending.. not much just picked Blue Lake string beans and some lovely zucchini.. moved my tomatoes ….eggplant, cauliflower and broccoli needed some spraying so now I can sit back and rest….Lovely weekend to all…

  73. http://Alison%20King says

    TGIF!!! I’m so happy it’s Friday. I’m feeling much better today than I did earlier this week, so I am happy. I’m excited to kick off a good and relaxing weekend.

  74. http://Sarah%20L says

    Good massage this morning. Then a good dip in the warm water pool with friends.

  75. http://Dorothy%20Boucher says

    Hello, hope your friday is going wonderful, didn’t think to be popping in at 9 pm here but here I am, Still freezing here in MA. hope its warmer where you’re at.

  76. http://Dorothy%20Boucher says

    I enjoy doing paper mache, I am actually working on two rabbits and 3 eggs for the up coming Easter , They should be posted on my instagram in a couple of weeks.

  77. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was a long day but I did get to see my new grand baby so that was nice.

  78. I’m still sniffling but feeling better, thank goodness. I potted up some colourful spring bulbs to take to Dad later today. Spending €5 – €10 Euro on weekly flowers just seems mad when it could be going towards the cost of heating and I’m sure as hell that Dad wouldn’t mind. Anyway, rugby in an hour so best get moving!

  79. http://Edye says

    going good! Getting ready to run errands and catch up on weekend chores.

  80. http://Terri%20S. says

    My day started with the sun shining brightly and the sky totally blue without a cloud in sight. Temperature is 40 degrees. Yay! Feels like a heat wave compared to the single digits we were in. 👍

  81. http://Terri%20S. says

    No, I am not a crafty person. My sister tried to teach me how to knit and crochet but I couldn’t get the hang of it.

  82. http://Kim%20Pincombe-Cole says

    Happy Saturday! Went to the winter farmers market – such a good morning…

  83. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    So, I’m finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. On the 14th, I have a home visit with my therapists, to just see if there will be any issues we need to address before I go home. We need to know if there are any things we need to work on before I actually leave. So, home is just a matter of weeks away.

  84. http://Diane%20K%20BRIMMER says

    I am do ok. I am on my way to a hospital in the southern part of too see my daughter before she goes in for serious brain surgery.

  85. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Pleasant day all around….worked a bit in the garden but caught up on laundry and changing linens…planning my order for a birthday cake and a St Pattys Day cake…..

  86. http://Karen%20Propes says

    Doing ok, getting over an MS relapse where I couldn’t eat or drink for 3 days. My throat was closed off. But now I’m eating again. “Yah”. Just still having the spasms in my legs and hands. This weather is not helping, but we don’t have the snow like you. But it rains here like a rain forest and everything is so soggy. The dog goes out and we have to clean him up before he can go in the house. We had a little pond like area in our driveway and it was so strange, it was like there was a hole in the earth and the air was bubbling up. Just never a dull moment here in NC. But love it and my beautiful family more and more every day. I thank God every morning when I wake up. Well, better stop, you said we could ramble, but I’m on disability and don’t get out much. Every time I go to the store I find myself rambling to the cashiers. But that’s ok because nowadays most cashiers don’t pay attention to you anyway. (LoL) Hope you are having a good day and you feel better. It’s hard because most times if ever have been injured the cold just seems to go into your bones. Also, I love Ali Express. Make sure you read reviews because I had a package lost in the mail. I tracked it all the way to the sorting center and they couldn’t find it and I didn’t get my money back or another shipment mailed out. But all my other transactions have been great, and there have been a lot. I’ve had some get to me in a couple of weeks. Take care. 😊🌼

  87. http://Angela%20Saver says

    It’s Saturday so it’s been a good day! It’s rainy here, but I’m happy to report it’s warming up.

  88. http://Sarah%20L says

    Had fun at a party for my friend who turned 100 today. Lots of family members flew in from all over (one from London) to celebrate.

  89. http://Sue%20E says

    Let’s put it this way – I am glad this day is over!
    Plus I ‘m glad I am going to lose an hour of it!
    Even though I don’t like Daylight Savings Time.

  90. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    We went out shopping and ate at a place that made crepes we had not been too. It was such a great time when it was not raining

  91. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was a good day. I slept in and did a couple errands.

  92. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    When I read all the challenges others have I am truly grateful for my life.. my woes are truly small…..enjoying my coffee and planning my ” do nothing but relax” day…..

  93. http://Robin%20Abrams says

    My day is going great so far. No snow on the ground now. But it is raining. Nice day that the grand kids and I are sitting here getting ready to watch the Lion King.

  94. To all those in pain or troubled, worry not, you are not alone. We are peanuts and we stick together (especially when coated in chocolate!). Sorry about the last bit but I got a present of some for Christmas and they’ve been taunting me ever since. Today might be the day I give in to temptation.

  95. http://Kristen says

    My day’s going great. I got stuff done this morning and now we have fun plans for the afternoon.

  96. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    Kate, you mean you’ve resisted chocolate covered peanuts since Christmas???? You are the Queen of Resistance!
    My home visit is scheduled for the 14th. We’ll find out if there are any potential issues, what we might need to work on, etc., then. My brother has knee replacement a few days after that and they want we to wait until he’s on his feet to go home. Okay. So, I guess I’m looking at the first week of April. I guess I can last that long, lol.

  97. http://Sarah%20L says

    Quiet day at home. Fuming over this: Your account has been disabled for violating our terms: http://instagram.com/about/legal/terms/. I have no idea what I did that Instagram hates me. I can still look at people’s accounts but can’t comment. Neat pic of MOOSE!

  98. http://Karen%20Propes says

    Having a pretty good day. It got up to 70 today and I walked outside a little. Hope you are feeling better.

  99. http://Sue%20E says

    My day was full of awesomeness 😎
    My girlfriend’s son is doing better and it was my nephew’s birthday 🎁

  100. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was a very busy day. I ran errands with my daughter and went to lunch. I saw my new grand baby and then went to see Captain Marvel with the family.

  101. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Alright the ” I am too sick to work” days are over… up and out as soon as breakfast is over….first hose and sanitize the aviary then off into the garden…

  102. Tamra: It is so heartening to get some good news at long last & best wishes to Rob xxx

    Michele: don’t catch bird flu and don’t try to do too much!

    As for me, I’m taking Mum to see Dad in a while – she hasn’t been out of the house in ages and I want to see if she might be more comfortable in the back seat as we’re heading to Dublin on Friday for a CT scan & tests. Her recent bloods were excellent but there’s always that little niggle of dread.

  103. http://Erin%20Ellis says

    My day is going awesome so far, but I admit this time change is making me slow, slow, slow this morning.

  104. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    Kate, I hope your Mum’s tests are all good!
    As for me, I’m so tired of everything being one more hurdle to get over. I’m ready for something to just be easy, lol.

  105. http://Sarah%20L says

    Lazy person here. Did not go swimming. Did not go out. I did get a new Instagram account so I can comment on your pictures.

  106. http://Daniel%20M says

    different day same stuff

  107. http://Karen%20Propes says

    Good Day, What company do you use to buy your Diamond Painting. I have so many other things going, but I want to try this also. 😊 Hope you’re feeling better.

  108. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was ok. It was another sunny day.

  109. http://Sue%20E says

    I am getting together some things for my husband’s birthday tomorrow, on March 12th. It’s getting harder and harder to get him a gift after 38 years together!
    He’ll be 71 years old! He’s a good man and I am very happy to be spending another year with him!

  110. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Kate.. hope all the tests turn out well for mum..
    Tamra.. after all you have been thru you deserve a break and it is coming!
    Feeling very upbeat and energetic this morning…going to put music on and get moving outside…

  111. There’s a major storm heading for Ireland later today & into the week. Did we always have this many storms or is just that we remember them more since we started to name them? Anyway I just hope ‘Gareth’ has gone by Friday.

  112. http://Erin%20Ellis says

    I sew and create daily!

  113. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    Today, I just got fed up with depending on people who think taking people out to smoke is equally important as helping someone who needs to go to the bathroom. So…I just said ‘this sh$# is for the birds.’ and I took myself to the bathroom, lol. There was no doubt in my mind that I could do it, but I try to go by their rules about having an ‘assist’ there in case needed. But I’m fed up with some of the silliness around here.

  114. http://Alison%20King says

    My day is going well. Work was a bit on the boring side today, but I am happy to be home now and excited to spend the evening with my sweetie.

  115. http://Sarah%20L says

    Sad but true about our weather: Currently 63 degrees; tomorrow a BLIZZARD!
    Good swim then did 4 loads of laundry.

  116. http://Karen%20Propes says

    Slow day today, sleep too late and have been trying to catch up all day. 🙁 Hope you are having a good day! 😊😊🌼

  117. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was a good day. I got a lot accomplished.

  118. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    So nice an sunny outside today in the garden. Nice to be outside without the rain coming down.

  119. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Another rainy gloomy day.. perfect for baking…cleared away the outside work yesterday so it is an inside day all day.. special Black Forest Birthday Cake first then some St Patty’s goodies….a nice little income…

  120. Nice one Tamra! Turning frustration into positivity.
    Storm Gareth has more or less blown out & while there were some power cuts and localised flooding thank heaven’s it was nowhere near as bad as it could have been. I’ve been up since 7am to make sure I’ll be able to get up on Friday at six. The housework’s done, the dinner prepped and now I’m bored so I’m going to practise some new pieces for the choir. What did we do before YouTube?

  121. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    Well, we are in an area affected by the Facebook issues today. So, can’t post on Facebook (I’ve managed to comment on a few posts by trying repeatedly, lol.) Also can’t even comment on Instagram. (Makes sense. Didn’t Facebook buy Instagram?) Just sent Facebook a message on Twitter, lol. Do think that’ll embarrass them into fixing it quicker??

    Today is my 8 year wedding anniversary. I am sick with a cold, so we are holding off on celebrating it. However, I am very thankful for my husband and the 2 beautiful daughters that we have together.

  123. http://Amy%20D says

    I am not crafty at all, but I do silly pre-school / kindergarten crafts with my daughters that I find on Pinterest. I am more of a cook / baker.

    We’re having a blizzard here in Colorado today after yesterday’s 63 degrees.. I’m staying home nice and warm.

  125. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was a bit tiring. I hope I can get to bed early.

  126. I’m on my way into town to check my tyre pressure and get a few goodies for the trip to Dublin. Mum has to fast so I’ll get her a snack bar or something as a treat till we get a proper meal on the way home.

  127. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Today is a dear friends birthday.. will have a short visit and chat this morning…. some people come into your life to give you great joy!

  128. http://Alison%20King says

    I’m enjoying the beautiful weather we are having today! I’m getting ready to go on a walk.

  129. http://Sarah%20L says

    Whew! Yesterday’s blizzard was tough around Colorado. Stayed home again today.

  130. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    Today, I had my home visit. I had some issues with the step up onto the porch, because the walker is up on the porch and I’m trying to sort of pull up, lol. Inside I get around fine. Anyway, it definitely let me know exactly what I need to work on during these next few weeks. ‘Cause I want to go home!

  131. http://Shannon%20R%20Mitchell says

    My favorite craft is sewing, I like making pillows and things like that.

  132. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was a pretty good day. I realaxed for most of it.

  133. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    Watching tv and the shootings in New Zealand so its a very sad day for us.

  134. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Hooray for you Tamra!! So happy you are going home soon…. It is Friday and I cannot believe the week is gone by so fast once it is Saturday it is already the next week for me…. Have a work plan for today so I better get moving.. weather looks like it will cooperate…

  135. Oh, Tamra, what wonderful news! I’m punching the air with delight 🙂

    Mum & I are back from Dublin. Honestly, leaving the house at 8.30 and all that driving … poor Mum’s ‘knackered’ as we say over here (in other words if she was a horse she’d be fit for nothing but the knacker’s yard and the glue factory! Anyway, it’s Paddy’s weekend & Monday’s a holiday as well so we can take it nice and easy.

  136. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    I’m feeling a little under the weather today. Hopefully, it’s nothing and will straighten itself out, lol. I’m tired of things going bad.

  137. http://Erin%20Ellis says

    My day is going awesome! We are suppose to be in the low 70’s today and I can’t wait!

  138. http://Alison%20King says

    I’m happy and excited it is Friday. I’m glad my husband is off all weekend and we will be able to spend some fun, quality time together.

  139. http://Sarah%20L says

    Sunshine and blue skies are back again after the blizzard. The blizzard knocked out power to the pool so it wasn’t quite as warm as usual but still felt good to get in some swimming.

  140. http://Karen%20Propes says

    Beautiful morning, but rain this afternoon, but it’s ok because we are watching the ACC! “Happy Happy”.

  141. http://shelly%20peterson says

  146. http://Kim%20Pincombe-Cole says

    Happy St Patty’s Day weekend! The sun is out in Indy – which is a great thing!

  147. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    It’s a slowish Saturday here. My picc line (an I.V.) is bleeding and the whole arm hurts, so hopefully it can be removed early next week.

  148. http://Sarah%20L says

    Took the light rail downtown to the Elle Caukins theater to volunteer at the DGMC concert. Excellent, high energy concert with great dancers.

  149. http://Cheryl%20B says

    I enjoy scrapbooking.

  150. I am a very crafty person, but I am no where near you~I’m in NJ~sorry! If I was closer I would be happy to teach you how to make wreaths and how to repurpose almost anything!

    Good day, we have a little stomach virus, but all is feeling better now. Hope your day is good! 😊🌼

  153. http://Terri%20S. says

    My day is almost over and I spent most of it binge watching Masterpiece Theater’s series, Victoria. It wasn’t my most productive day but sometimes it feels good to spoil oneself. 🙂

  154. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was a fun day. went to chuck E Cheese with the family.

  155. http://Paula%20Pennachio says

    Well I’ve been up all night entering sweepstakes. I keep seeing things I want to win. I keep running into sites I really like too

  156. http://Paula%20Pennachio says

    I do crafts I love making things for my home. I live in PA. I buy craft books and look at sites like this to get ideas

  157. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Got all my gardening done yesterday so today is a true day of rest….Corned Beef dinner of course and then relaxing with my book.. Happy St Patty’s Day all!!

  158. Well, Wales won the 6-Nations so Mum’s delighted! Happy Paddy’s Day if you’re Irish! In all the years I’ve lived here I’ve only once been to a Parade. I also drank green Guinness that day; never again, my tongue was vivid green for days – not a good look 🙂

  159. http://Alison%20King says

    My day has been great so far. We had a fun night last night with friends, so we have just been taking it easy today. I’m enjoying spending time with my husband. I’m so glad he’s been off work all weekend.

  160. http://Amy%20D says

    My day is going great! It’s St. Patrick’s Day! A leprechaun visited our home today and left a trail of coins and goodies for my daughters. I love creating magic on holidays for my little girls. They were so excited.

  161. http://Karen%20Propes says

    Having a good day today, the sun is shining here today. Even though it’s chilly the sun makes up for it. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you! 🍀

  162. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    Just got back from a run to the E.R. My right knee has been painful for about three days, but Saturday night it got excruciating. It was centered behind the knee, radiated up and down, the rest of the lower leg was getting numb…then today it was putting off a lot of heat. First thought was blood clot. So, they did a blood test that showed something was elevated, which can mean blood clot…but it can mean other things, too. Tomorrow I have to have a doppler ultrasound to check it out. They did give me shots of blood thinner which should keep it under control for 24 hours. Meantime, it still hurts.

  163. http://Sarah%20L says

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day 🍀🍀🍀🍀. Had good chorus rehearsal and even sang an Irish song.

  164. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    It was a wonderful day beach weather here to we hung out there all day

  165. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Off to the shoppes today.. a day out woohoo!!!!

  166. http://shelly%20peterson says

    My day has just started so we shall see how it goes.

  167. OMG Tamra, whatever next? At least it’s being dealt with properly, you poor thing.

    I’m on super duper strong painkillers since Thursday last. I’ve done something to my hip & have to have an x-ray. I don’t remember wrenching it so it could be arthritis 🙁 . It’s meant that I can’t do very much and sleeping is very haphazard as every time I move I wake up shouting. Bit of a bummer.

  168. http://Tamra%20Phelps says

    I feel your pain, Kate! Sleep is hard when pain never turns off.
    Sometime today, I’ll have that ultrasound on the right knee and hopefully find out what’s up. I did manage to stand in p.t. today but man, it hurt.

  169. http://Alison%20King says

    It was my first day back at the school after spring break. It was a pretty good day, but moved a little slow. lol. What can you say, it’s Monday. lol.

  170. http://Sarah%20L says

    Good swim with old friend at other pool. Regular pool closed today due to heater problem.

  171. http://Karen%20Propes says

    Good Day, feeling dizzy all morning, but feeling better now.

  172. http://shelly%20peterson says

    Today was definitely a Monday. I hope tomorrow is better.

  173. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    To Tamra.. hope you got thru the ultrasound alright.
    To Kate.. hip pain is unbelievable…hope it eases some and you find out what it is exactly….
    everyday brings new and challenges things girls!….Well since I went out yesterday work today and the sun is shining which helps….

  174. I dug out my TENS machine late last night – sick of taking painkillers – and oh, the blessed relief!

  175. http://Terri%20S. says

    I looked busy running here and there on errands but in the end forgot a lot of things. So, I need to go out tomorrow and I will definitely bring a list this time and check off things to make sure I get it all right this time. 🙂

  176. http://Sarah%20L says

    Last infusion at the Englewood Infusion center. I’ve been going there for 14 years and know all the nurses very well. I will miss them. Kaiser is consolidating their centers and starting next time I have to go to downtown Franklin building.

  177. http://Karen%20Propes says

    Good day, I got to walk and feel so much better. Can’t wait till the weather lets me walk again every day.

  178. http://Laurie%20Nykaza says

    Such a wonderful day out for lunch and to the garden center to buy flowers

  179. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Full Moon so better get going planting some coconut plants and flowers….Feeling so energized today.. To Kate what is a TENS machine??

  180. Michele: Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation: pads with electrodes that you place on the affected area & then switch on the electrical stimulation to whatever level suits you. Much like acupuncture, it disrupts the ‘messages’ of pain to the brain. I got mine when I dislocated my knee but it can even be used during chiildbirth! Cost about €50 over the counter in Ireland & worth every penny. If you’re thinking of getting one make sure you can replace the pads because they do get icky after a couple of months!

    As for me, I had a better night (thanks to TENS) and am off to get my hair cut!

  181. http://shelly%20peterson says

    My day is just starting but its a nice sunny day!

  182. http://Sarah%20L says

    Happy Spring! 🌹🌺🌷🌸🌷 – Good swim with friends. Lots of sunshine on this first day of Spring.

  183. http://shelly%20peterson says

    I am not feeling very good today. I am heading to bed and hope I can sleep.

  184. The birds woke me at 5a.m. so I got up and did the housework (very quietly!). Mum’s CT scan & bloods all clear – yay! One in the eye for cancer!

  185. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Kate… sounds wonderful…have to investigate here if not amazon I am sure….Today is plant pest kill day so off to make Neem Oil spray and let them know who is boss!!

  186. http://Robin%20Abrams says

    My day is going good. I got to sleep in today and it felt so good. I am usually on the go with the grand kids and get very little sleep

  187. http://Sarah%20L says

    Beautiful first full day of Spring. 60 degrees. Got a haircut and stopped at the library. Have dinner cooking in the crock pot.

  188. http://Karen%20Propes says

    Strange day, started cutting fabric for a quilt and misplaced one of the fabrics. I spent the rest of the day looking and it was laying on the sewing machine. I’ll do better tomorrow, it must have been the weather. 😊

  189. http://Terri%20S. says

    It was raining all day so it was a good time to clean out and organize my kitchen cabinets.

  190. http://Michele%20Soyer says

    Looks like a glorious day outside.. really have no motivation to work.. might just take a seat and enjoy the fresh air, flowers and birds….

  191. Michele: don’t get your neem oil anywhere near your fish!

    It’s a grey day today with drizzle, the sort of day that makes your hair curly! I don’t feel like doing much but have to get on and do it anyway …

  192. http://shelly%20peterson says

    My day is just starting and I am still tired. I am glad its Friday.

  193. http://Sarah%20L says

    Good swim with friends. Expecting the first Thunderstorms of the year today. At least it’s not snow….

  194. http://Alison%20King says

    I’m glad it’s Friday. I went for a mani and pedi after work today and it was so nice. I haven’t done that in a looong time and had forgotten how relaxing it could be. I’m looking forward to going to bed early tonight and getting some much needed rest.
