Hello the Camp!

Happy Spring all!
Ok, TONS and tons and tons of life has been happening!  You too eh? Well, I told you I would get around to this blog Again someday. Today, is not really that day. BUT, we, my daughter and a couple of DIL's and one DIL 's mom, are going to be building a new blog. We're all way excited by the prospects , but we're are going to be leaving blogger behind.... Sad sigh. It was a fun ride while it lasted but we are looking for something different.  We're going to be having an etsy shop as well, with the hopes of a twice a year market show.  When each little detail is set in stone, we will shout it from the roof tops! For now, I have reopened this blog for an old friend who had a quirky desire to read it. ( oppps, did I say the word "old"? Well we iz what we iz ) Molting Here...
For the most part I have been a silent reader to your blogs, and I want to thank you for the good times!
I quit enjoy Pinterest. It can really suck a person in I think.
You can find me there , on pinterest, simply as Lewaina Nelson. My profile picture is tipis.
I also follow a few of you on Instagram.
Hopefully, When the new blog is up, we'll be sharing with you there as well.

Hope spring is warming your neck of the woods! It's a VERY welcome item here!

I found out what my problem is as far as posting pictures on my blog. I need to down size my photos. (Thanks again Savannah) I'm having a tiny bit of stress in my life, so I can't think about how to down size photos today..... And maybe not tomorrow....but maybe the day after that ( meaning a somewhat mythical day in the future) I'll get it together! Ha! If you know me at all your laughing your head off here cuz you know I've NEVER had it together and the likelihood of that happening is..... Well not very.
However, pictures or not, a thought for the day.

Drenched IN JOY.
Neal A Maxwell

Drenched in Joy. Doesn't that sound amazing?

Really, I can hardly wait.

Thanks to all who love me. You bring sunshine and warmth to my life. Joy!

We have snow at last.
They who love it wish for more, they who don't (mostly me) are also wishing for more.
We need it for up coming crops.
It's been so nice and warm that I have been loving the very balmy-ness of our January!
Well, with the exception of worrying about a drouth...
We all have been watching the skies, waiting for signs of a snow flake, all the
while basking in the warmth of 50 degree weather.
Yesterday it came.
Clean, wet and fresh.
How funny, something I usually dread brought so much peace to my heart.
( the drouth issue again?...)
Maybe not.
Somehow, I felt renewed.
Which was a surprise to me.
I'm a died in the wool SNOW scrooge!
I ran outside yesterday, and by the time I was done I looked like a yeti.
I needed wipers for my skinny little eyelashes.(did you think I was going to say skinny something else?) Nada. Nonexistent.
Last night the wind blew.
Froze all that beautiful snow.
But I still feel some excitement lingering and swirling around me.
Maybe we'll get some more this coming week.
Who knows, maybe I can reckon with old man winter, and find a reason to enjoy it.
I had better not push my luck. :-)

I heart you!

SO for awhile now, I have been wanting to do some new posts. I was a lucky sucker and got an ipad for mothers day last year, and I have tried to post posts from it, but could not down load pictures. I didn't get in any kind of a snit over it though cuz I was just busy and figured I'd get the process learned sooner than not. Well, I can't download any pictures to my blog at all, not on my ipad, nor the PC. Blogger tells me I've maxed out my quota with Picasa and if I want to download any more pictures, I can BUY more space. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS TROUBLE?  No one that I personally know has had any idea what is going on. I'm not sure what I need to do. CAN ANYONE OUT THERE OFFER ME ANY HELP?

 SO in the mean time, since I missed almost a years worth of wishing you happy every holiday that has passed, I'm going to skip January and get a head start on Valentines day! LOL maybe I'll have my problem worked out by that time! Here is a re-post from last year.
 ( it still counts cuz the sentiment is still the same :-0)

"How many slams in an old screen door?
Depends how loud you shut it.
How many slices in a bread?
Depends how thin you cut it.
 How much good inside a day?
Depends how good you live 'em.
 How much love inside a friend?
Depends how much you give 'em."
— Shel Silverstein

 Happy Valentines Day my friends!  Thank you so much for your bloggy friendship and visits.  :-)
 I hope this day you will be able to share mountains of love with your dears! And feel all those mountains of love in return. I hope you can give away many hugs this day, and will receive some back.  I hope you can "kick" a valentine or two!! (anyone remember "kicking " valentines? ) (maybe you called it  "stomping or stamping" ) ...did none of you REALLY kick any Valentines? Really?

Hearts around The Stone House

Our dear friend lost her husband on Friday night, and another dear friend is home healing from extensive cancer surgery on her jaw and face, while yet another friend's 3 yr old  granddaughter is under going kemo for cancer on both her kidneys. Hold your loved ones close and tell them how much you love them! Shout it to the roof tops and love them tight! 
 Make the most of loving them 24/7. It's the most important thing we can ever do in our lives!
OK, well, I really meant to keep this post light and I'm getting off track!
Enjoy your day.
I'm behind on my visits, I'm thinking about you
 and I'll be by soon.

Since this is a re-post, I will tell you, that my dear friend passed away in Aug of 2011. Just 6 months after finding out she had cancer. She never did get well. The 3 year old did. Her cancer is in remission/gone.

They know her cluck, they listen and they follow.
