preparing the yard and garden for spring, planting bulbs for a beautiful Easter show, this is the first year I've been able to plan ahead since we moved to our 5acres. gathering all my clay pots, because it is fun to add the different dimension... I always think back to my great grandmother Downings beautiful property in Willow Creek, CA. I discovered about 10 years ago, that when I plan what I want my home and property to look like that my gg.Katherine has a powerful impact on the emotions I want to convey to the family and friends that come to visit me. I know that it took her years to create the beauty of her home, so I am planning. A sense of peace, beauty, abundance, thoughtfulness, love, welcome ~ HOME.

The times gone past; the good old days.
[Scots : auld, old + lang, long + syne, since.]
"Auld Lang Syne" (Scots pronunciation: [ˈɔːld lɑŋˈsəin]: note "s" rather than "z") is a Scottish poem written by Robert Burns in 1788 and set to the tune of a traditional folk song (Roud # 6294). It is well known in many English-speaking (and other) countries and is often sung to celebrate the start of the New Year at the stroke of midnight. By extension, its use has also become common at funerals, graduations, and as a farewell or ending to other occasions.
The song's Scots title may be translated into English literally as "old long since", or more idiomatically, "long long ago", "days gone by" or "old times". The phrase "Auld Lang Syne" is also used in similar poems by Robert Ayton (1570–1638), Allan Ramsay (1686–1757), and James Watson (1711) as well as older folk songs predating Burns. Matthew Fitt uses the phrase "In the days of auld lang syne" as the equivalent of "Once upon a time..." in his retelling of fairy tales in the Scots language.

Alyssa lost her 2nd tooth with a bit more Grace then the first time. Mommy pushed it down until it popped and it was so loose. Took only a bit more convincing that all was needed was a tug. One quick tug and out came the tooth. Flossy the Tooth Fairy brought her a certificate, sacagawea $1, and left a trail of pink super fine fairy dust all over her and her pillow~

the new debt is if we will be adding another pet to our family, I've always wanted to get a dog, but I don't feel that I'm ready yet for the additional responsibility, I bought a book about tiny dong for the girls to look at and they all fell in love with a tea cup chihuahua - brown with fluffier fur then most pics.... "ooooohhhhhh, so sweet, I want to have her" and a list of names began being discussed. Hailey loves the name Cocoa (hahaha, no surprise). Brianna likes the name Mimi. Alyssa wanted to name the puppy Sally after our kitty we miss. Caitlyn liked the name Lily. We are still in the discussion phase~ but the girls were jumping up and down with the excitement of the potential that we might get a puppy.
