Parade Fun

My oldest son and his son Israel were waiting for the Saint Patty's Day parade to start. Luckily we have been having unseasonably warm weather for this time of year. The grass has already greened up.

Removable pool fence

Do you ever wonder if it can be dangerous to have pools open to the public when staying at a hotel/motel? Most have some type of removable pool fence. I have even found that I can't enter unless I have my room key with me. I think that's probably a good idea. Hate to see a problem or accident happen.

Week of technical difficulties

This guest post from Lewis Beck

Ever since the kids had a bunch of projects they could not work on because our Internet kept going out, I have been considering getting direct tv internet set up at our house. I have heard that it is pretty reliable, especially for where we live. That was such an ordeal. The kids both had science fair projects that were due the same week. Of course, they put them off until the last minute so that we were panicked trying to do experiments, research and reports almost all in one week. On top of that, when we finally got to the part where the kids needed to do the research and actually sit down and write the report, we just had problem after problem first with our computer and then with the Internet. Needless to say, it was a rough week for the family. I told the kids we could never have that type of situation again and that included the technical issues we had. Hopefully if I switch, I can avoid things like the Internet cutting out every few minutes when my kids are frantically trying to find useful information! What a week that was!

So you don't get much better then this when it comes to March weather! The sun is shinning and the temps are verging 80 degrees! The breeze is softly blowing and the smells of spring are in the air. Zoe my dog is also enjoying her time spent outdoors. I think we're going to have to go for a walk.

Church Chair

My husband and I decided to move last fall after thirty years in the same small community. In buying a new home we thought it was time for a new look. Have you ever seen where a person has purchased a church chair and had it in an entryway? I think that looks awesome. We are still in the midst of setting up house, but it's coming a long. I think we're going to like it here.

Nursing Uniforms

For many years I've worked in the medical field. When I first started out we were able to wear white slacks and any color top we wanted too. Then we wore lab coats. Now we all wear the same colors each day. Wearing nursing uniforms sure makes it easy to get ready in the morning. I'm thankful for that!
