It's the little things...

ohhh it's the little things! 
My dear friend and thrifting buddy Maria texted me the other evening and said she was at Goodwill and there were Close to my Heart stamping sets! My sis Natasha sold Close to my Heart for several years and there stuff is so cute! (not to mention Natasha had the best ideas) So fun! Before that it was D.O.T.S. (Dozens of Terrific Stamps!) And my friend Shelli sold them! Ohhhh I was so excited! 


Hazel found a hippo at Goodwill that night and couldn't wait to get home and paint it. 
Friday night it was just Hazel, Oren and myself. Merit, Willem and Vance went to Wenatchee to support Merit's basketball team, the Thunder! Merit hurt his knee Thursday and was not able to play in the tournament. It was a bummer but I was proud of those guys for heading to Wenatchee and cheering the Thunder on for a couple of their games. I am hoping Merit's knee heals well. 
Hazel, Oren and I shared a salad from Michael's Bistro. We went and picked it up at about 6 o'clock. Hazel in her "Frozen" pajamas and Oren in comfy clothes. My friend Shannon and family met us in the parking lot for a hug and little hello. She is the kind of friend where if you are having a bad day, she helps get you through the rest of it. We pray for each other often. No prayer request is too big or too small or too silly. I love this and I love her.

Willem, Hazel and I oven shopping. Hazel was tired of it, Willem was goofy over it and 
I am simply excited about getting a new oven! Although I haven't decided on which one.

Sticky buns! YUM~!!

Our little cabin

Late start Monday, sticky buns and family!

Katie A. texted me a recipe for a yummy crock pot soup! 
I loved it.

I have a cold. blah
I am not supposed to get colds! I use essential oils. ;-)
So, a hot tea from Mc Donalds, a little agave nectar and two drops of lemon essential oil tastes so good~! 
The essential oils don't always keep us totally healthy, but we have been healthier since using them and they relieve the symptoms. I am a believer! 

The graphics fairy... I think that where I got this free printable! And now it will be stationary for me to write a letter to my Grandma Alma! 

Life feels heavy sometimes. But I am thankful for the little things and for the joy that every day holds!
