Great places to visit

Sally (Clarkson) does sit again. What a beautiful post about living life and making a beautiful home. There is a reason I think of her as a twin separated at birth (well, fraternal twins as one is blond and the other used to have black hair).

What a joy to have her as a friend, a true gift from God... even if one of us (moi') gets so busy we don't take time to e-mail precious people. Click here...

It doesn't get any better for me then showing pictures of my grandchildren. Stephanie hasn't been able to post on her blog for quite awhile... as mothers of preschoolers know, life has been so busy that I only hear from her when she's traveling to the grocery store, doctor's office, or Bible study!

Not only are there grandchildren pictures but she's showing her "before" and "after" pics from working out and watching her diet. (She took part in Amy's challenge.. Amy is one of our very favorite bloggers.) Steph and I both put on weight easily and have to work hard to take it off.

My husband was tall and too thin until he turned 60 a couple years ago. Now he's normal (well, weight that is... the jury is still out on the rest of him). Christopher will put on a few pounds and take it off in one or two workouts at the gym. Sheesh... Anyhoo, click here to see precious grandchildren.

If you haven't commented on the I Heart Hobbit Houses post, please do! Even if you don't want to leave a comment... be sure to read the wonderful lists of books (and a few films) that others have recommended. I am so excited about this list... here.

I know I've given you lots of places to visit, not to mention my post about Spring Cleaning is less then twenty-four hours old. However, I'm going to be busy with yard work for a couple of days so I won't have a new post until Thursday or Friday.

I should also send out a reminder that the Dayspring 20% off code is still good for the rest of April, even if the give away is over. I took the back off the tray (it comes off like the back of a picture frame) and placed a pretty floral drawer liner paper under the glass. There is still room to store the four beautiful liners that come with it (with different artwork and words) if desired to use later.

My imagination has run wild, thinking of seasonal gift wrap and even cloth to use under the glass. So pretty! Not to mention the beautiful teapots, teacups, and stationary. Debra, I'll get the car on Friday to go to the Post Office. Congratulations, again and I'll e-mail soon! The original post, which contains the discount code, can be found here.

Such ambitious (the good kind of ambition) people! Your grandchildren are adorable.

Beautiful grandchildren - and I can SO see the resemblance from mother to daughter to grandchildren.

Yes, I'm planning to revisit Sally's blog and write down all the titles. :) It was fun to see your grandchildren! They are so adorable with their matching dark hair. It's fun when the children in families have the same color hair.

The little kidlets are so cute!! As one grandmother to another...isen't it soooo wonderful having grandchildren!! :) I find the blogs I go on from the blog lists bloggers I aleady go to have listed on the side or in their blog entries. Sometimes I find new ones by clicking on the names in the comment section. Because of that it seems they always come full circle. The person I click on has most of the same people I go to on their blog list. They therefore usually have the same values as I do etc. Like when you said Amy...I naturally knew who you were talking about...it feels like we all live in the same Real community and know each other! I wish we really did. Thanks Brenda for brightening my day...again. Jody
