My Life has been changed by color

Moll Anderson's Book can be ordered at a discount before release on March 14th.

If you know me at all, you know I am not afraid to dress in colors and patterns. Thanks to current clothing trends I have 5 different print leggings, but I wear them with solid color tops. I love the little girl outfits with the different prints, but I just could not do that myself.

This weekend I completed a little makeover of my living room and terrace. (Little makeover, little terrace, and little living room.) My couch pillows moved outside.

It was great to sit at my newly painted table and have my tea and biscuits after painting my nails, green, for St Patrick's Day; this afternoon.

I hope the sheet of glass will keep the paint nice

This morning the paint was dry, so I put an old sheet of glass for an ancient picture frame over the table. It was great to be outside to enjoy morning coffee.

Despite the time change I was up at 6 am Daylight Saving Times. I guess my internal clock changed yesterday sometime. It was pitch dark at 6 am except for the big bright moon in the sky. I took this picture right before it slid behind the horizon, around 8am.

While embracing colors I made some new silly pillows

My biggest adventure today was to start painting a hummingbird. I took a break to walk my bike to the bike shop, to air my tires, over the hill and down to Trader Joe's for reinforcements.

For the past 57 years of my life I have had corn beef and cabbage for St Patrick's Day. Most of it I have cooked in my Slow Cooker. This year I discovered Trader Joe's Ruben sandwich. This is amazing. Low fat corn beef, Swiss cheese, Gluten Free bread and TJ's Sauerkraut. It is Amazing!!!!

Moll's book has helped me heal some baggage about colors that I didn't know I was carrying. I realized that it was not the the color of this chair that I didn't like it was the dirty, old house I could never get clean (1989 to 2015.)

I was also not going to ever decorate with anything that resembled "mint green and pink". Well, my table and stool look kind of mint green and those pillows and window flounce are looking pretty pink.

March has brought me a lot of smiles. My little Em is now 6 months old and sent me a video of her sitting, crawling and sitting again. 40 seconds and a head nod of satisfaction.

Her Auntie Mary went down to Sacramento for the College and Em got to snuggle Auntie Mary.

The birthday season is well under way in my family. We had a special birthday on Feb 24 and that amazing child had a baby on March 2nd. My Abbie had her birthday on March 9th.

Happy Birthday Mommy
My dad will have a birthday this week and then we wait until April 17th for the next birthday.

My school has a tri-mester system. We just finished the second tri-mester. After testing all the students in 1st through 5th grades, I will get back to reading groups this week. I teach 5 different reading groups, so I am happy to be able to start back into the groove.

My fingernails and toenails are ready for St Patrick's Day. May you all be blessed this week.
