I have been miserable all week with allergies. Did I mention I was miserable? Yes, miserable! I can not breathe through my nose. I mean literally, I can't breathe unless my mouth is open. And I am so tired.....sooooooooooooo tired. And yet when I try to lie down and sleep, not being able to breathe through my nose? Well, sleeping doesn't come easy. Pollen has never bothered me like this before. A little, but not like this. I want to scream!!!
This room is still a work in progress...
So after 2 days of doing nothing but sitting around the house blowing my nose and watching TV, I thought I'd do a little craft. I have wanted a live wreath above my fireplace where I had put the old window I got. I just like live wreaths made of greenery, in the spring and summer. I had this little birds nest wreath laying around the house so I figured I'd use it. I have a much larger one that I plan to use later for the front door. So, I went outside and cut some greenery and played around with it and voila'...5 minutes later, fresh greenery. As long as I spritz it with water every couple of days it should last for quite a while.

What do you think? Cute? yeah, I think so...for free! Any time I can just play around with something I have for free and give it a new life...that makes me smile.

He is Risen! Happy Easter!

We had a lovely warm and beautiful Easter here in southeast North Carolina. :) We had most of the family with us and that always means fun, laughter and chaos. 10 adults and 9 children. Throw in 3 dogs and 2 cats and like I said, chaos. But it's always a good chaos. Lots of food, love and Easter eggs to be hunted.
And Jesus too. He's here every day but remembering him on Sunday in our church service is just a reminder of all he's done for us. All the blessings that He has given us. All those blessings dressed up in pretty little dresses on Sunday. Thank you Lord for all you did on the cross and thank you for all you continue to do in my life. :) 
Hope y'all had a wonderful Easter! From our family to yours!
