Random Thoughts

I have to say that there's something very satisfying about finding name brand winter coats for my girls, that just happen to be in there favorite colors, for pennies at a garage sale. Now don't get me wrong. I am not one to only buy name brand clothes. These that I found recently just happen to be! They are in "like new" condition too!! I'm just so pleased! I don't know what my financial future holds at the moment. Not sure what God's plan is.....but that's OK....because I know HE is the plan! He is the answer! So I'm sticking close to Him. That being said I'm preparing for winter, because I know it's coming. I'm making sure my family has everything they need. Because whether I'm prepared or's coming. Technically, it's only spring here. But we've had an unusually warm April and many many garage sales! I've already found beautiful warm coats for all three girls as well as snow pants/bibs for each! Some I already had from last year, but most were very worn and needed to be replaced. Now all I need are new boots for each. Yeah God!! Thanks for the deals!

A bloggy friend of mine introduced us to these two fantastic science sites. This virtual surgery website has knee surgery, hip surgery and even brain surgery. The girls are loving them!! Caution: virtual blood is shown as well as the sounds of different instruments. ie. saws The other site, shows actual surgeries being preformed. This site is definitely NOT for the squeamish! My girls LOVE it though! Thanks Kysha for sharing them with us!! If you know of any others, please let us know. Thanks!!

Yesterday, my brother found us FREE raspberry plants on Craig's list. They were already dug up and wrapped in newspaper! All we had to do was drive 15 miles away to pick them up! Yeah!! We're going to replant them in the backyard against our fence line today. I'll try and get a pic of them after we're done.

We are also getting ready for a HUGE garage sale with my sil this week. I'm trying to downsize, de-clutter, and just CLEAN HOUSE!! We've already brought over one packed to the brim van load. We're doing another today. Pray that everything sells for both of us please!

Well, the sun has risen and there is much work to do. So that's it for now! I haven't been on the computer much these days as it's hard to sit for very long. But I believe that is going to get better soon. I miss my bloggy friends!

I too shop for seasons to come. 1 year I found turtlenecks at K M*art at the end of the winter season for 69 cents a piece. I bought each kid several in many different colors. LOL!

Wishing you the best on your raspberries. Be sure to protect them from the rabbits if you have any. Our strawberries were no match for the hungry bunnies.

Just dropping by to leave a warm hello and may the Lord always bless you and keep you and your girls. Praying all is well.
