  3. Wow ... that's quite a building project you've got going.

    I like that word thing. Never quite understood how LinkedIn works. I know I'm on it; and just leave it at that.

    God bless.

  5. First of all, I can't wait to see what you guys are up to with the exterior of your cute little bungalow. I'll be back for sure! And thanks for the heads up on that interesting book and course. Oh and your granddaughter, right? She's a hoot! I bet she gets her sense of humor from you and Tim! I can't wait to get into the grandparenting years. Looks like a whole lot of fun!

  9. Love the tip on wordificator.com. I did not know about that one, but definitely plan to try it out!! Cannot wait to see the unveiling of your home "the after". It's like watching HGTV!! That 7 year old is a pretty cute, fun-loving sweetheart it would appear. Fun for me.....discovering no glimpses of things I passed before or have rediscovered, playing cards with our adult and nearly adult grandchildren, taking our granddog, Sam (a loving golden retriever, for a walk today!!

    1. It's a beautiful day for you and Sam to get out there, isn't it!

  10. It's good to see you've been having FUN, Linda! Love those pictures of that granddaughter. Priceless. I've been enjoying some new scented candles and a new stack of books, both gifts from friends. :-)

  11. I've just been having fun with that cool word-thingy, Linda. :) I even created a word bird for my next post. The photos of your little sweetheart (your granddaughter?) added more smiles to my day. So cute. I think the before pic of your home already looks cozy, but I'm looking forward to seeing your creativity in the after pic. :) Blessings and hugs to you!

  12. So much fun stuff here, my friend! That word toy, I must play on that site. I definitely need that class about less. I'll be checking it out as well. I'm really trying to focus on simplifying these days. It's really hard for me as I have serious hoarding tendencies. I can't wait to see your house series. I'm obsessed with home renovation TV shows. And your granddaughter, absolutely adorable!

    1. I know, Candace ... Joshua's class looks so fabulous ... could be a gamechanger for many of us, just what we need to start / continue down the road toward a simpler life.

      And yes, it's way easy to be obsessed with HGTV ... I'm a huge Fixer Upper fan!

  17. Love the hat (and the expressions on the face of its wearer). Can't wait to read more about your new fixer-upper. You're now on LinkedIn; I'm now on Twitter. (I'm not sure if that qualifies as fun. More like, uh, what in the world am I doing?) I hope you have a wonderful May, my friend!

  18. Linda,
    IT sounds like you've had a full and wonderful month! Josh's course sounds great but I know I can barely keep up with my current commitments so I guess I will have to practice less is more with my schedule...Blessings to you :-) Is that your lovely granddaughter?

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOVE!!! What an adorable 7 year old. I'm sure she keeps you young! Can't wait to see the reveal of your fixer upper. You have been busy. I hope you write about The More of Less. It sounds intriguing. As for Linked in- that is one I am not on. If you ever expand beyond that, let me know! Sending you warm hugs!

    1. LinkedIn was fun and easy to navigate. Since I'm not too sure what God has for me in the future with counseling, I thought it a good move just to get my name out there.

      I know He has something ... I just can't see it yet. Meanwhile, I'm content.

  22. Hi Linda,
    A belated thanks for publishing my words in your single series (I've been MIA online of late!) and I enjoyed reading the thoughts of the other ladies you featured. I can't wait to see your series about your renovations (before and afters are always my favorite!) and I think your word graphic is pretty spiffy too!

    1. Well, I'm pretty excited by your post today, friend! I can't wait to see how that furniture comes out!

      I'm working up the courage to do a 'shabby-chic' redo of a mirror of my grandma's. You've given me some good inspiration today!
