Chick Day

Out of the 25 chicks I have not yet chosen one... they all look so alike!
I probably will tomorrow. Name isn't decided yet either but probably Sweetpea or Raspberry.

Thank you so much for following this blog, and I hope you can enjoy past posts anytime you want!!
Goodbye and have a great day!

Spring's Arrival

Today is so beautiful outside! I have two things I need to say:
1: Flowers are starting to appear! Mostly, it's green leaves, but the green is really catching my attention.

Flowers are popping up all over the yard. As of this minute, all my family is outside, and I yearn to be with them. I just want to write this down before I forget what I was going to say. 

Hard work! I embrace it (today at least). But the winter has made me flabby. I carried a box of wet leaves pretty much around the corner of our house and was breathing hard. Uhh..... all I can say is "I NEED TO EXERCISE MORE!" :). 

Crocuses are showing their blooms.

As spring arrives, the arrival of something else has come too... 
It's crazy to write this, but I'm actually going to end this blog. I've contemplated about it for over a month now, and (to me) it seems like I've been much less connected with this blog. 
So, that said, I guess I should explain why.
Like I said, over a month ago I started thinking about it. I think God just put it in my brain, because I don't know why I thought about it. I had a blog a while ago and stopped it at a hundred posts. This one has (I think) over 300 and I know over 200. But I really just, stopped enjoying blogger. I'm going to leave my blog up so you can look at past posts or whatever, and I'll definitely come back and look sometimes- it's like a treasure trove of memories!

You might have seen in a past post that I am getting a chick and keeping it out at a friend's house this year. I will post again to show you a picture of my chick, and that will conclude this blog.

Thank you all so much for following, and I hope you have enjoyed reading it!

Love to all,

5 Random Things

Of course, this is labeled under random.... here we go:

1. I just did a fishtail braid in my own hair... and I am very proud of it. :) Hehe.
2. Yesterday, we took a drive early in the morning because of some visitors at our house.
We had to leave at 4:30 in the morning because a skunk sprayed under our house.

3. I just watched How to Steal a Million, and apart from the millions of smooches they hand off, it's a cute movie. :)

4. I have actually changed a lot of things on my "25 Things to Do before I Die" list because I go back and think, "Why do I want to accomplish that before I die?" :)
5. In this post, I said I had a secret name for my baby chick not even my family knew but I changed it because I didn't like it anymore. Now I've decided that I can't name her until I see her. I have a million good names for a rooster though.

That's the randomness I just thought I'd share with you- =)
