The most asked question lately....

Debbie, are you going to the shows in North Carolina?
(This would be the Rose DEDS and the IDS doll shows later this month; June)

And the answer is...


You see, I took this year off from June shows so that I could enjoy my spring.  
June shows are very hard to prepare for~at least for me.

I also wanted to invest some of my hard-earned profits back into improving my home instead of placing them all in traveling expenses.

Since I knew I would not be buying airline tickets, last fall, I had this old icky looking, weed growing path between our house and the neighbors garage

turned into this lovely rock path:

And all this spring, I have been making improvements to our yard and have created gardens to which I am growing some wonderful, organic foods for us to enjoy.  

And I have enjoyed planting many different flowers and herbs as well.

This spring, I purchased new windows for my laundry room and did some eye-appeal changes to that room.

Here are the old, single pane windows.
These windows opened inward and the center one could be completely removed.

Here are the new windows.  I had them custom built to allow a year-round seat for my cat, Yuumei.

  And she LOVES her windows!

I've spent a lot of time with these three boys:

Have been taking riding lessons every Friday on this boy:

Have been enjoying these precious ones:

Will I miss seeing all my friends from around the world?  

Yes, I will, but I won't forget this spring and how relaxing and enjoying it has been.

I can't wait to hear all the stories of all the "adoptions" and fun times everyone will have!
