Mixing Things Up

I think I promised to keep this site fresh when we came into the new year.

Well...Spring is in the air and it's time for Grandy to change things up a bit.

Wow, playing with these templates is not an easy thing. I hope you all like the new look. I was supposed to have posted something on Saturday to share how I'm preparing for the season change. Well, better late than never...right?

What is Grandy's favorite day of the year? March 19th!! This day is both Ty's birthday and the last day of winter. Spring is my favorite time of year and so what a time for new fresh things indeed.

So I'm starting with a new look on the blog.

What's next??

I'm physically getting stronger every day, and am very excited about my soon improved health.

I'm going to focus new efforts on my writing.

Oh yeah...and I have to get Hubby's taxes done (yeah yeah...I'm all over that).

So tell me readers...what are you doing to bring in Spring?

Anything new in the works??

Mixing things up again... I like what you have done.

I too am doing a bit of Spring cleaning in my life. And it feels good! I love love love Spring! Bring on the sun.

I had template issues this weekend as well--I ended up giving up; will try again when I have more time.

Homework, that's what I'm doing.

I love the new ‘avatar’ and am happy you’re ‘on the mend’… playing with your blog again. I see no picture or name in the header at the moment so I assume you’re working on it as I type. Happy birthday to Ty ;--)
I’m enjoying the flowers in my yard whenever possible while continuing to clear out clutter and simplify my life in the ‘real’ world. In a little while I'm going to get my hair cut and run some errands for my sister.
Thanks for asking.
Hugs and blessings,

I am waiting VERY impatently for spring myself...I just saw some buds and greenery popping up outside and that excites me!

I'm very eager to de-clutter my house this spring AND do lots of yard work to make my yard look fantabulous!

And spring wedding! WOO HOO!

Oh yay, Ty's birthday is tomorrow. Wish him a groovy day from that weird squirrel character! :-)

I'm glad you're feeling better bit by bit.

Love the fresh look.

My plans for Spring...taxes to be done, much as yourself. Also, looking forward to getting the babes out in the yard and around the neighborhood. Gab and myself are big outdoor hippies and would live out there if it weren't against city ordinances. ;-)

I am going to try and quit whining for awhile.....I'm not sure how that is going to go....IT'S REALLY HARD AROUND MY HOUSE RIGHT NOW...(hee-hee)

Seriously...I am going to work on my flowerbeds and clean the sty I call my house!

Grandy said...

OHMommy~ Glad you like! Spring cleaning in life? You can do it.

Jenn~ Homework? Eewwww...I'm supposed to be doing that.

storyteller~ How's the haircut? Do you see the pictures yet? Did I do things right?

April~ Woo - Flippin - Hoo indeed!! Your wedding is so close!!

Curb~ Those darn ordinances.

Queenie~ Thanks for stopping by! You call your house a sty too?

Wreke~ Pop quiz...the floor in your house, is it carpet, wood or tile?

Mike~ Thanks sir! Glad you like the changes.

Huse~ Thanks so much for stopping by! What's google readering??

dk~ I vote for outside every time. ;)

storyteller said...

Haircut is just what I needed so I'm good to go for another 6 weeks when I'll get another perm ;--)

Yup ... you did it right! The header is very cool! Makes me want to play with mine ... almost.

Hugs and blessings,

Travis said...

Well, it doesn't look too much like spring here yet...but it's only the first day!


Suzanne said...

Change is good, Mary!

I'm awash in a new beginning and a boatload of boxes. I guess we moved at just the right time.

We have bandwidth, but I can't access the net with the laptop yet, so the stories of the move have to wait.

Tina Coruth said...


I'm happy to see that you are getting stronger every day!

What am I doing? Counting the days until my Cabin Fever is gone. The snow melts a little more every day. I can't wait to take my doxie, Oscar, for walks again. I think his case of Cabin Fever is just as bad as mine!! Think Spring!!


Grandy said...

storyteller~ Your banner is great! Only change it if you want to. :)

Travis~ Ohhh..I hope you get some spring weather soon.

Suzanne~ I'll be waiting for those stories. ;)

Tina~ I'm sure Oscar could run on one of those little hamster wheels for an hour and not get tired, he's probably so anxious for outdoors.
