My blog is a way for me to share in the wonder of each day. I know there are others like me that due to medical issues have our days numbered and would like to make the most of them in a positive and gifting way for ourselves and for those around us.

Everything Pink

This will be only about Pink Today!

Well, except for these pictures of a cute little guy. Isn't it nice when kids are young enough that grandma's are still cool? I love it.

A week ago I finished refurbishing a $2.99 chair from good*will for my granddaughter, Mariah. I didn't think to take a before shot but it was skinned up black with an old dirty seat cover that was definitely worse for wear.

After some sanding down and repainting the frame and recovering and adding somemore padding, the finished product was just perfect for her little desk for homework. Not bad for a goodwill chair, goodwill padding and goodwill material piece. The paint was the only new cost.

I took way too many pictures of our crabapple trees during their blossom budding to opening stages and I loved it. I decided to make a slide show so enjoy but it may be a little long since I had a hard time cutting down to just a few.

Is that a flowering or an edible crapapple tree? Whichever, it is beautiful.
Saw your comment to Putz. He's teasing readers with his spelling. A perfect speller he is w/a degree. I get a kick out of his antics. Looking forward getting into your block. and....can I have that little boy...I want him, the little doll

Hi Reva,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm wondering if you are the Reva who is related to Brenda, from It's all Good?

The chair is great!!! I'm sure your granddaughter loves it. Have you ever made crabapple jelly? I had a crabapple tree when we lived in NM and I made the jelly one year. It was one of those, "I did that once!" kind of things because it was wayyyyy to much work for the small amount of jelly it made. It was surely good though!!

Loved your comment on my post about age. I so agree with you, Reva. Our Spirits are eternal and live forever. That's one reason why I can be 72 and yet still feel about 35-40 most of the time. Who am I kidding? Feel like 8 some days!!!

Reva, that chair looks adorable! You did a fabulous job giving it a new look.

Your tree pics are lovely. I have taken multiple photos of a drop of water standing on a leaf because each picture seems prettier than the one before and it captured my imagination. I totally get the multiple shot thing :)

Have a wonderful day!
