Surprise from a wonderful friend!

I have been under the weather today, it must be the flu, my get up and go has just got up and went. He He

But I do want to share a sweet surprise that I received in the mail this week. Brenda from "Pine Tree Prims"

sent me one of her amazing pin keeps. I love it, it is my first Easter pin keep. Brenda is a sweetie

and makes wonderful pin keeps. I have several and love and cherish each one. Thank you Brenda from

the bottom of my heart.  Isn't it beautiful!!!!

  One of the schools that I work at I am a forth graders private nurse. I get to go to class with him

all day. And  I enjoy the children so much, I am just like one of them, just quite a bit older, well yesterday

one of the students drew me a picture. I told him that I knew he was going to be a famous artist

one day and that I would proudly display his picture on my fridge . I thought I would

share my wonderful gift from one of my classmates.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
