Easter Blessings

vintage-flowers.jpgI I want to wish all of you the most joyous Easter ever.  From bunnies, chicks, Jelly beans, hard boiled eggs and white shoes. New growth sprouting from the earth, birds singing and children laughing, let us enjoy and celebrate and especially let us give Thanks and Praise to Jesus Christ who loves us so.

Spread some love and Smile at someone grumpy.  Smiles are so contageous.   

Peace and Blessings from my home to yours, Mollye

Thursday’s Thrifty Three Best Tips

1.  TOILET LEAK TEST:  Add food coloring to the toilet tank.

Do not flush for thirty minutes.

If the water in the toilet bowl changes colors, your tank is leaking.

2.  THICK WAIST:  Choose loose fitting tops that come to the

hips, and avoid tucking in.

3.  MILLIPEDES:  Keep those pesky millipedes out of your house with

a line of good talcum powder.  They won’t cross it!

Tuesday’s Terrific Ten

1.  TERIFFIC person who passed through my life was a man named Robbie. 

He died a few weeks ago at the age of 81.  He lived most of his life on the lake

and was the owner of a marina/lakeside bar.  He was little and wiley.  Many people

 entered his life when they had nowhere else to go; down on their luck and feeling

 hopeless and helpless.  He never turned anyone away and helped as he knew. 

One of his joys was an activity he referred to as “dumpster diving” where he made

daily treks to the huge dumpster with a long pole which he retreived items others

had thrown away to find new use of, to clean up and share with those who had

nothing.  He judged no one.

2.  TERRIFIC book I once read and later re=read was “Paradise Falls” by Don

Robertson in 1966.  The Underwood saga begins in 1865 in a midwest setting

and becomes a lesson of truth, hope, courage and most of all the stamina to

never give up.  One critic described the novel as…”Here, then, to begin, is the Truth of this place:

Listen to the Truth. It abounds. Everyone has his own truth, and every truth is true in

the eyes of its beholder, but all individual truths are simply fragments, and thus the only true Truth (the only true and complete and unswerving truth) is the sum and total of all the right and proper-and incomplete-individual truths. Ah, this place. It is a saint. It is a whore. It is all.”

If you want a good read, one in which you are totally involved and leaving you as having learned some of life’s great lessons, go by the library and check this book out.

3.  TERRIFIC new thing I’m making is the Butterfly Barbie.  Others in the Yahoo art groups have kindly posted their renditions and instructions and I am creating my own using some of the ideas given and experimenting with my own.  What fun I’m having with her.  I will post pictures when she is ready for her “debut”.

4.  TERRIFIC thing to do with the wallpaper sample books and I’ve covered everything that will sit still with them, but the thing I love most are the envelopes.  Simply make a template from whatever size envelope you want to use and trace around.  Using a folder, crease on the lines tightly and with a glue stick form your envie.  All of these will travel through the mail, but if the envie is very busy you may want to “back” your mailing label with a solid paper.  If the wallpaper is any texture other than smooth paper, you will want to use something like Yes paste rather than a glue stick.  No more store bought blah blah envies!

5.  TERRIFIC invention for me these days is the digital recorder or known as T-Vo.  Amazing that I can record my favorite soaps, craft shows, or movies and watch at my leisure. 

6.  TERRIFIC feeling I get each time I take my violin from it’s case and hold it securely beneath my left hand and chin.  I still cannot play it and have yet to have my first lesson, but I can feel the magic in the privacy of my home and can imagine the beautiful music it is capable of producing as I close my eyes and hold it close.

7.  TERRIFIC breakfast for one.  Very quick, low calory, healthy and tasty breakfast I enjoy is to lightly butter a piece of wheat bread and while it is broiling, quick scramble one egg with a tiny bit of chopped tomato in an olive oil coated skillet placing a slice of swiss cheese on it as the fire is turned off.  The toast should be ready now and the “omelet” goes on top and is served with a can of V-8 spicy hot juice.   Quick,   easy,   and ohhhhhhhh so good.

8.  TERRIFIC times I hope to have this spring is for Mike and I to grab our fishing stuff and take the boat to the nearest lake for a day of fishing.  Lazy day of sunning, not talking, or maybe talking and snacking on salty junk food, drinking cold sodas, getting your fingers dirty and sticky from worms and crickets and coming home completely exhausted to a clean shower, clean sheets and tales to one another of the one “that got away”.

9.  TERRIFIC feeling before I go to bed at night is knowing I have spoken to all my chicks and that they are ok.

10.  TERRIFIC feeling when I open my eyes in the morning is that I have a new day in which I can open my eyes.

What a TERRIFIC world in which we live.  What a TERRIFIC  God.  What a TERRIFIC Tuesday this is.

Until we meet again,  Happy Trails to you and yours,  Mollye
