Spring cleaning


 S P R I N G 

C L E A N I N G

L O V E


 
 pack the mittens
snow pants
gloves
sweaters
cowls

hats
scarves  
  
boots
wool socks
glovies
furs

stow the shovels
stack the sleds
store the ice skates
snow shoes
skis

cover the snowblower
wax the mower
snows a melting 
grass is growing!

beat the rugs
wash the windows
sweep the barn
turn the compost
...
 snow is hiding 
under the hay

bulbs are peaking
worms are moving
birds are nesting
trees are waking
 buds are breaking

dirt is living
grass is remembering
sun is warming
warmer 
warmer 
warmer still

spring is coming

spring is coming

spring is here.




 i LOVE a good culling.
this is how i do it.

1. do i  LOVE  it ?

2. do i  NEED it?

if  the "it" in question does not fall
quickly into one of these categories
then i ponder

THROWING
 DONATING
SELLING
or
GIVING 
(an opportunity to BLESS someone
else' life who needs what you do not.)

i used to just suggest the first
three but over the years
our little family has really
enjoyed learning to ponder
 who could really
use something that we don't want/need anymore...
or we post it on facebook and it is 
snatched up in minutes!
it's really FUN!

all options are good and have their place.

it is good to be able to just 
throw something. 
it is good to be able let things
go and make way for 

S  P  A  C  E 
 

if you do not LOVE a THING . . . 
you are completely FREE to either KEEP it . . or NOT 
KEEP it!

it is your choice! 

isn't that lovely.

May the God of all Comfort
strengthen and encourage you
to press on. . . 
to keep on. . . 
to keep trying. . . 
to do and continue to do 
what is needful
for yourself
and those around you

so that others 
may 
simply
live."

in reference to things i am having 
trouble parting with...
when the voice in my head is saying. . .
but...
but it's always BEEN here!
it. . exists
and it's in my life!

i
say


GET.

RID.

OF.

IT.

the  peaceful 

s p a c e 

is so worth it.

It's Complicated...


It's Complicated

..to live simply...

or to simply LIVE...in some cases.


but it will not always be so.

Cook's Illustrated Blueberry Muffin Recipe
..so far the best i've found and has a base of sour cream
. .  which just makes everything better.
i add about 2 Tbsp of lemon juice after whisking in the 
sour cream just to make them even more delicious then 
they already are.

Easy No Bake Energy Bite LOVE





all into food processor 


MIX TILL LOOKS LIKE THIS
 

you should be able to roll this mixture into a ball that stays together.
if it doesn't. . just add a little bit more peanut butter till it does.


 we tried using this heart shaped silicone mold
and they came out SUPER cute.
if it hadn't worked though
we would have rolled the mixture into balls.


 these will keep almost any way. . 
room temp
fridge or frozen
depending on how fast you think they will 
disappear. 
:)






this recipe was inspired by one 
i found while desperately looking for something 
easy and fun to make with and for my 
three year olde son who can really never
eat quite enough fiber poor guy.
im super thankful to fannetastic food for 
the overall outline and method of this recipe. 
it was a HUGE hit.
