Remind yourself every day:
I am in charge of my happiness.
I will not let anything
outside of myself control me.
I am creating a life
that feels good on the inside
and it will turn into experiences
that are good on the outside.

In The English Kitchen today  . . .  Dill Potato Salad. Yummy!  

I ended up having to defrost a freezer yesterday because I had accidentally left the door partway open. Thankfully we only lost a tub of ice cream. Whew!  I was able to save everything else. Its a good thing I had to get something from the freezer or we would have lost everything!  

Have a wonderful day! Don't forget!

And I do too!    



  1. I love all the crocheted things picture today. Reminds me of the many things my grandmother used to make. Have a fantastic Friday!

    1. Oh yes, me also Pam. I am a girl with old fashioned tastes! xoxo

  2. yay on saving all except the ice cream..cutie things here:) I used to have a small small portable ironing board..where is that thing? Who know?..Rain..soft gentle rain..

    1. I bought a small Ironing Board before lockdown started. Its in my craft room and I use it often. I also got myself a small iron to use with it! You need rain! I hope it doesn't make things stickier! xoxo

  3. Absolutely love those pretty paper daffodils. As a March baby, they are my birth flower. I hear a heat wave is heated your way, Marie. You and Todd take care. Mitzie, too. Hugs and love, Elaine

    1. They are also the national flower of Wales Elaine! I had not heard about the heatwave. I don't mind heat so long as its not sticky heat! Woke up to rain again this morning. You and Larry have a safe and happy and healthy weekend! xoxo

  4. I am so happy you didn't lose a lot of items from you freezer; scary!
    You had a lot of fun items on this one. I really loved again all the crocheted ones. I really should try and make some dish cloth ones; they were so cute.
    I liked the washable covers for the grocery carts.
    I could use a foot warmer. My feet are cold, a lot.
    Thanks for sharing all the fun items.
    Blessings and hugs!
