Proceed with a happy heart

But first, please read below ...

Beliefs don’t make you a better person.

Behavior does.

~ Anonymous 

Never apologize for being sensitive or emotional. 

It’s a sign that you have a big heart,

and that you aren’t afraid to let others see it.

Showing your emotions is a sign of strength.

~Brigitte Nicole

The people you will always remember are the ones

who made you feel loved when you were at your lowest.

Jelly Bean Bark

  • 2 cups of white chocolate chips

  • 1 cup Easter egg jelly beans

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  • To melt the chocolate chunks, use a double boiler, or a saucepan and a metal or

  •  glass bowl. I like to use the saucepan/metal bowl option: all you have to do is

  •  put about an inch of water in the saucepan, get it boiling, then put the bowl

  • Spread the melted chocolate out on to the parchment paper, about 1/4 inch

  • thick.
  • Let the chocolate cool for a few minutes, then sprinkle on your jelly beans.
  • Allow the chocolate to cool completely, before breaking it into pieces.

If My House Had

A Front Porch

Many of you have asked about the progress of our front porch.

Well, we are at a stand still right now waiting on the tin for the roof. It

got delayed in being delivered. Our contractor is due back this weekend

to hopefully finish the roofing and then the finishing touches of the

spindle-railing and some electrical work. We found the rockers we

wanted yesterday -- pretty maple finish and are just gonna look

awesome and be very comfortable to spend time in. I'll keep

you posted ....

Happy Spring everyone, finally!!! Now to be a little

more patient in waiting on some warm temps. It

still wants to stay in the chilly 30's and 40's

here in Ohio .... sigh ..... 

I hope you enjoyed today's dose. Join me tomorrow

as I welcome in the weekend. Have a good, good day.

And now till another time, be safe in

all you do. Be aware of everything and

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
