Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Just Puttering Around

We’ve had bits of snow over the past few days


no huge amounts just enough to make the roads slushy and slippery. It was the right amount to cover all the brown and grey winter grass and make everything look fresh and clean

.   Erika and I spent Saturday helping my brother in-law moving…ok… I helped unpacking, she helped in the blowing snow with the others loading and unloading.

Other than that it’s been pretty quiet around here & that’s fine with me.

I’ve been reorganizing, cleaning out kitchen cabinets and puttering around de-cluttering a bit here and there.   We made a good dent in the basement a few weeks ago but, the main floor needs more cleaning out.   I need to ramp it up and get-r-done as spring is just around the corner

But other things like this keep distracting me!


Playing with a pattern for a very simple baby quilt.  I’m going with a combination of 2 patterns I liked….we’ll see how it turns out


Since I started this post Monday, I think I’d better just stop now or it will be next month before I’m done.  The doors & windows are open!  Cant believe it but it’s 71 today!!! Mark it on the calendar!   Snow called for tonight LOL!

Have a great day



  1. I saw a documentary about this a few years ago. They are perfectionists about their uniforms, they measure spacing of the different pins and buttons with millimeter rulers.

  2. Amazing isn't it? Those men who guard the tomb are very special people. Thanks for the history lesson, I truly enjoyed it!

  3. Wow! I had no idea. Thanks for posting this.

  4. God Bless America! Thank you for sharing.

  5. One of, if not THE, most impressive things we witnessed when we were in DC a few years ago. They demand that the audience is respectful as well. Some teens were sitting and chatting at the tomb and the guard left his marching and went over to them and told them --You will stand at attention and you will be respectful. They did. And with no grumbling or teen attitude. Total respect. Everyone should, sometime in their life, visit Arlington. Awe inspiring. We witnessed a funeral while there, a flag draped casket on a wagon (forgot the name) pulled by horses.

  6. Wow learn soething new everyday.This made want to start crying.


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
