“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:
I am ready for winter to be over. There, I said it. lol I know I said I wouldn’t be negative here, but I think a lot of us are feeling a little winter weary. Ohio had another big snowfall on Tuesday, and right now there is still snow on the ground. And yet, hope springs eternal. Emphasis on SPRINGs! 🙂
I’ve been seriously considering trying my hand at some indoor gardening because I don’t know when I’m going to be able to get my hands back into the dirt outside. lol Here are three great posts for things you can grow on your counter:
Reveal Natural Health started an herb garden.
The Inspired Room created a five-minute succulent garden in the kitchen.
At Home with Jemma guest posted at Nancherrow and designed a beautiful terrarium. Gorgeous!
Do you have any indoor growing areas? Any tips to share?
My friend, LeeAnn, put together this wonderful post to teach children about Easter. Whether you have kids at home or grandchildren, there are many great ideas! It is a wonderful resource!
Ed designed another free printable to share. I love to plan our menus and write out the grocery list for the week. We hope you enjoy these. Click the links below, save the pdf files to your computer and print them out as many times as you wish. These will print out at 100% on a regular piece of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. The left side is for meal planning and the right side is a handy grocery list. Maybe you can hang this on the fridge and ask your family to update the “Grocery” side as needed during the week. 🙂 Please feel free to share these.

Have a great weekend! Remember Philippians 4:8. “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Those caramels sure do look good. It sounds like you need some of our hot weather…please send me some snow and I’ll send some sunshine from Down Under!
Best wishes and many thanks for your lovely party. Have a good weekend.

Thank you for hosting! You have a wonderful blog, and I’ve linked up with you at http://www.GoCrochetCrazy.blogspot.com
Those caramels look delicious. I think I will need to print off the menu/grocery list for my son!! He was hired as a full-time chef yesterday too. The big exciting news for our household this week!!! Spring is coming…
Much love to you, Elizabeth. And a big hello to Ed too.
Have a lovely weekend.
Thank you for featuring my indoor herb garden! I’ll be posting lots of updates as it grows and expands. I love the menu planners Ed designed!

LOL! I was ready for Spring until our first tornado warning yesterday, with a storm. Now, I’m stuck kind of remembering why I really do not like Spring here, and wanting to return to winter. Oh well, bring on Spring… I’m going to start my hunt for little flowers poking up through the ground.
I want to do an inside herb garden, but I think my window sills are too cold in the winter. I’m thinking on it 🙂 Great job on the menu printabl.
Those caramels look very yummy! Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂
Thank you for featuring the DIY Terrarium that Jemma wrote about! I am soooo ready for warmer weather. And actually, today it’s finally in the 50s-yay! What part of Ohio do you live in? Eastern side of the state? We live in SW PA, only about 5 minutes from the OH border.
I shared my homemade tortilla recipe! Thanks for hosting and have a beautiful weekend!
I LOVE caramels! Thanks for the menu/grocery list. I need to do better at planning meals. Have a lovely weekend.
Wish I could send you some of our Arizona desert glorious weather (right now)! Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my latest blog post!
