Hello, I hope you are doing great. Happy belated Mother’s Day to all you mothers. I pray your day was lovely. My daughter Regina bought me these beautiful rose bushes and planted them for me. They are called Knock Out Roses. I hope to have them for years to come. I also had some sweet phone calls and a quiet afternoon at home. I didn’t get to see my own mom ,but we had a long chatty talk on the phone, which was really nice. It was a nice day. Have a great week friends.

Hi friends, thank you for stopping by today. I’ve not been up to much as of late. I try to keep up with some housekeeping as much as I can, but my daughter does the bulk on the two days a week that she comes. She does a wonderful job to. I hate that I’m not able to do what I once could, but happy for what I still can do, and happy for the help I receive! I still enjoy my home regardless of what I can or can’t do! It is where I live, where I Thrive. I enjoy my stuff in the home. Mostly things I’ve collected from thrift shops, etc. When I feel like I’ve collected to much I will begin to weed through things and send some things to our local charity shop for someone else to enjoy. However, I cannot get out and about like before so there isn’t as many collections as I once had. I still feel a urge to unload my house at times. My doll collection has grown to many for my pleasure. I have many of them packed away. Just because I don’t want to give them up just yet. My home is small so I must be careful as to what I bring into it, and what I store in it. Do you have collections ,if so what are some of them? I used to have many, but today I only have my dolls and a few small collections of little things, such as a collection of Flower Frogs! I like stuff, but I don’t like clutter. So when I collect to much...... I unload. It’s a great way to keep down clutter. Which makes me feel emotionally uncluttered as well! Even if I live alone at this time of my life, my home needs me to keep it in order, to keep it lived in! I thank Jesus for my home, it has served me well this past thirty years. I try and treat her kindly, if that makes sense. 😊 I have a problem making sense these days.....ha!
Thank y’all for stopping by today. I’ll be back. 🐣☀️🕊🏖😊

We had a big snow storm here in Texas. I thought I would share some pictures. It is so beautiful, but left us without electricity and water for a time. Our lights are back on but I have busted water lines to repair. Our state wasn’t prepared for this storm. The temps were below zero a night or two with tonight’s temp going down to around 15 degrees. Things will start to get a little more normal on Saturday. I will be glad. We are just not used to this kind of weather! I hope wherever you are you are warm, safe, and have plenty of water. Thank you for stopping by today.

Well, it’s February . The month to share some ❤️! Will you be decorating for Valentine Day? I’m sure I’ll do a bit of decorating, but nothing like I used to do. Just don’t have the energy anymore. I thought I would go through some older photos and share some Valentines with you. Enjoy
Thank you for stopping by today. Blessings , Shelley ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

This is me with my sweet doggie companion. Who remembers Tasha? She is five years old now and will be six in July. She has been such a blessing to me. I really do enjoy her company. She keeps me motivated to move as well. My mobility isn’t what it once was. I find myself sitting to much! The longer I sit, the harder it is for me to move. So Tasha keeps me getting up and down through out the day tending to all her business. Eating ,drinking, and going outdoors. Not to mention all the playing. She has several toys that we play with , she rarely runs out of energy. Oh, but I do! I thought long and hard before getting her with all the responsibilities that go with owning pets, but I’m so glad I did.
This picture below is of my mama and her dog . She really loved him, but Unfortunately he was ran over right in front of my mama’s house. It’s been a while and my mama still has another dog to keep her company so things have gotten better. She still misses him......we all do.
Well, I hope I didn’t upset anyone sharing about my mom’s dog. Bad things happen in life for sure, but we must do our best to move on. Boy, haven’t I had to learn that the hard way. Maybe you have to. Thank you for stopping by today. Blessings to you all, Shelley

Thank you so much for responding to my last post. So good to hear from you all. Just a few days ago we had a wonderful snow day. What a lovely surprise it was. I was only able to go on my porch for a bit. It was beautiful just to look at. I enjoyed it so much. The birds were so happy playing in the snow, I loved watching them. Something I didn’t share with you all in my last post is that I have had Covid for the last few weeks. I’m doing better now, and only have a few days of quarantine left. It’s been a very uncomfortable time, but I’m so thankful as it could have been so much worse. My eldest daughter had it also, and was just a bit more sick with it than I’ve been. We are both so happy to almost have put it behind us now. It’s been a very strange time for the whole world over the last year. I’m praying for what is to come in 2021. It is good to know that God has remained in control through it all.
Thank you dear friends for stopping by. I’m blessed by your comments. Blessings, Shelley
