It's such a beautiful day! Spring decided to spring on us last week; and it has been marvelous I must say. Of course the doors and windows are open and the fans are running. All that lovely breeze, sunshine and white noise makes me want to nap. It looks like winter may visit again for a day or two next week but for now I'm enjoying the warmth. I'm planning out what I want to do with the yard and house this spring. I have it all in my head I just need to get it to paper so I don't forget it. Forgetfulness comes with the territory I hear. What territory you ask? Well, the Mamaw territory! See, I'm gonna be a Mamaw in October! I'm, we all, are super excited. Tman and his lovely wife are expecting :) Time to get into baby mode :) it's been so many years since a little one was in our home. I am a blessed woman for sure. Blessings ~ Nikki
So one of my many goals this year is to walk\run 14 miles a week. This may not seem like much but it is for me. I have arthritis and a hip ...

Tea Filters ) to hold my ingredients. In a 1/2 gallon jar I use 1/2 tsp of dried peppermint, 1/4 tsp powdered ginger, 1/4 tsp dried thyme, 1/4 tsp dried rosemary, 1-2 tbs honey, 2tsp lemon juice. I hang the filter off the side of the jar ( they are really long filters) and screw the ring on it. I then pour boiling water in the jar and steep for 3 - 5 minuets. It all depends on how strong you want it. Sometimes I add more honey in my cup for a sweeter flavor.
I have set several goals for this year and blogging at least weekly is one of them. So often I say I'm going to be an active blogger again but life gets so busy and its always the things we enjoy that seem to drop off the list of must do's. There have been some great changes though and hopefully this is a goal I can keep . I miss the bloggy world :/ We still don't have internet at our place. Mainly because only thing available is a mobile hotspot or satellite internet and I am overly cautious of that 2 year contract . So for now its reading and blogging by my phone or at the library; which is where I am today. By the way, I think they forgot to turn off the AC in here...it is FREEZING! Anyway, be well and blessings til we meet again!

For the second time in little over a week we have more snow! After battling freezing rain, ice and snow last week; we woke up to more snow today. We have about 4" here and other places have less or more. I had 3 interviews scheduled today but had to reschedule 2. I'm sure I'll have to change the last one also. The goal is to stay warm :) Blessings!

Tonight I officially became a nurse, not registered yet but soon :) The pinning ceremony was tonight and graduation is tomorrow. Its been a long road but we made it. So thankful for my family who stuck by me and bore the hardships and for God giving me the strength and courage to do it. Now I can have time to blog again :) Blessings! - Nikki
