MARCH – LION, OR LAMB?

Does anyone remember learning in school about the arrival of March?
We learned if March came in like a lamb it would go out like a lion, but if it came in like a lion it would go out like a lamb. According to our weatherman our March is coming in like a lamb with lots of sunshine and spring-like temps and I’m all about that!


Once again, I’ve been away. Once again, no motivation. I’m still feeling like I’ve got nutthin’.

But hey!!
I’m hoping to get some traveling in this year. I am missing my kiddo and grand-kiddos back east SOOOO much. Thank goodness for Facetime/Skype/Duo. All great apps to keep me seeing those beautiful faces and hearing those precious voices and tho it’s better than nothing it’s not enough! Now they need to invent an app that will allow me to reach thru the screen and get some hugs and kisses and go to band concerts, sporting events, and dance!!


I trust you’re all getting along well out in your corners of the world. 
Our first week of March is supposed to be filled with lots of sunshine and warmer temps. I’ll take it! Of course, there’s probably a couple of snowstorms coming in behind it but I don’t care. I just need a few days to feel the sunshine on my face and to hit those trails again! I’d love to see some flowers peeking out, but that’s probably too much to hope for.
Did you know that the flower for the month of March is the daffodil?

The flower of rebirth and new beginnings.
Do any of you have daffodils popping up? They’re usually the first flower I see around here, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen them this early.

JUST A REMINDER – “A gift of daffodils is said to suggest good luck, however, if it is just a single bloom gifted this instead is supposed to foretell misfortune so take care when giving daffodils as gifts!”

One of those gifts where you have to choose to use your powers for good or evil.


I wish I had more exciting stuff to write about, but it’s just not happening in my corner of the world. We’ve had some crazy weather like most parts of the country and I am so looking forward to the warmer temps.

I have found some new shows to watch and if you have time you might want to schedule these in.

NETFLIX – 
Waiting on season 2 of this show and not very patiently. Of course, there are the books to read, but I don’t want to spoil alert my own self! I can hardly wait, but I will wait.

CBS – 
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this one because I didn’t think anyone could play Clarice other than Jodie Foster. I was wrong. This girl is a good choice. She’s definitely got that slight southern tone mastered. 

It’s a good show and I hope CBS doesn’t cancel it but if they do, there’s always Netflix, right? It can always be brought back to life there.

HGTV
I just love this little couple Ben and Erin Napier. They’re from Laurel, Miss. and they’re beautifying their little town one abandoned house at a time.

This is a fun show to watch. Nothing stressful, nothing scary, no edge-of-the-seat stuff just a fun show. If you’re not watching, I highly recommend that you do.

So, those are a few of the shows I’m watching these days, what about you? Do you have any faves you’d like to share and recommend? You know what to do, just drop ’em in the comments so we can all see what’s on your screens.


I’ve been early spring cleaning all things crafting/sewing/yarn and now I need to use them all up! I promised myself that I wouldn’t purchase any more craft stuff until I’ve made a dent in what I already have and I’m happy to say I’ve kept that promise!


I know it’s been a minute but I would love to hear what everyone has been up to and if you’d care to share that would be great.
I’ve missed you!!

2020 MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – Who was that masked man?

 “Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist. Or as I like to call it –
“Your local serial killer hunting ground.”


❤ @THE MAVERICK, SHORTIE
I’m not sure how old you are or if you’re single but wow was I attracted to you right away even with that cute mask you had on.
*** Dear Maverick, I think you need to get your eyes…

❤ TINDER SEARCH
Hi, my name is Lindsey and I’m looking for my missed connection. I matched with a man named Peter who is 24, 6’3″ and goes to the U of I. We really connected and I accidentally unmatched with him. If any of you know him, please help me find him again!
*** Dear Lindsey, get in line. A lot of women/men are looking for a peter…
And if he happens to be 24 and 6’3″… BONEus! 
Better to rob the cradle than the kennel.


That quote up there really says it all for me!
To be honest, I think we could all use a new month and a new mindset.
I don’t know about any of you but emotionally I am wiped out!

It’s time for some…
Can I get an amen??!!
AMEN!!!


How’s everybody doing? I hope you’re all healthy and I hope none of you got caught in the protesting and riots.
It’s a crazy time to be sure. I’m happy to say that Boise had a peaceful protest of about 300 people.
Granted, we don’t have a large black community but racism is, unfortunately, in every community.


We’re at Phase 3 of 4 for reopening Idaho. The pools, water parks, bars, and movie theaters have been added to the list and I think that about wraps up all of the businesses.
Phase 4 is just increasing how many people can go here, there and everywhere while still following the CDC guidelines.
So, basically, it’s your life. Do what’s right for you.

For me, due to my compromised immune system, I will continue to avoid crowds, I’ll continue social distancing, and I’ll be wearing my mask when I go in most places.
However, if it doesn’t rain and temps aren’t in the 90’s or triple digits I’ll be putting my new trek poles to work on the trails and NOT wearing a mask but I’ll have one just in case a ginormous marathon of trailblazers come storming up behind me!
Aren’t they pretty? They really help with steeper inclines and they do help you get a bit further on down the trails.
I can almost hear Roy and Dale now…
It’s okay, you can groan.


Needless-to-say, I’ve been getting a lot of crafting in.
Cross stitching, crocheting, and making sparkly bows for my granddaughters.
Anything to keep my mind off of the chaos.
I listen to a lot of jazz music while I craft. I listen to the BGM Channel on Spotify but it’s on iTunes and YouTube (free) as well.
About the only time, I’m not listening to music is when I’m reading. Some people can listen and read at the same time and I have no idea how they do it.
My kids used to listen to super loud music while they did their homework and since none of them failed I’m guessing the music didn’t interfere.

Speaking of reading, this is the book I’m starting tomorrow.
I try to start a new book at the beginning of every month. I have no idea what this book is about but it looks creepy.
I guess I’ll see.


What are your thoughts on getting out n’ about?
Are you going all-in or are you approaching with caution?
What have you been doing to pass the time during the pandemic?
Are any of you doing some crafting or DIY projects?
What about reading? What books are you reading?
Please do share with us because ya’ know, we really are in this together.

I’m keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Be safe and be kind.
