A thing we have....but didn't know we needed

Who has a Kindle...Kindle Fire?
Raise your hand (my hand is raised high)

Did you buy it for yourself....
or was it a gift?
 My husband bought it...
but gave it to me.
I actually didn't "know" that I needed one...
until he brought it home.
But they are sooooo handy to use.
I  daily check the free book list.
I have found a few "keeper" books there.
I am kinda picky about what I download to read.
I don't want to read it just because its free....
There other day I downloaded and read a book in one day.
I  thought the book was about a true story...
I found out in the was a true event...but not real people. 
(That was kind of disappointing)

  •  Reading news and checking weather
  • checking email and facebook
  • google searches
  • playing games(my kids like that)
Let me know what you like about your Kindle....
or what you think about Kindles.
Have a great weekend....
and go read a book(on your Kindle).
I might.
Take care,

Thinking of you Thursday

I have been thinking about Blogging.....

I have lots of ideas going through my head...
I  will post some pictures about what I have been doing...

Its finally Spring(I think so)
but we have had the woodstove going all week
(where is that warm weather we had last week...or was it the week before?)
before it started raining
(yes, its been cold, rainy & sunny everyday this week, except Sunday)
Here is what we did Sunday evening after church...
 Finally....planted potatoes
Big house...little yard
I am LOVING the greenhouse...
I have tomatoes, peppers,onions and broccoli
grown from seeds...getting bigger in the nice greenhouse
some plants will stay in the greenhouse in pots...
others will go into the ground.
This is why the pictures look dark.
I took this before we started working in the garden.

Take care,
There will hopefully be another post tomorrow.

Brrrr...signs of spring???

Hello from western Montana...
it is COLD here....brrrrrrr
I have one (of 2 ) woodstoves going today.
Spring is just around the corner...
(we hope!)

Here is what I have been busy doing...
 Going to my grandsons T-ball games.
Twice a week.

Starting seeds
Some have sprouted
And will be put in here...
And   here.
This is to show the depth of the raised bed.
This shows the growth of plants at my house...
daffodils just bloomed this week.
the other plant is a peony bush.

I hope it is warmer where you are.
How has your spring been?

Take care,
