End Of The Month Kinds Of Thoughts

Raise your hand if you say Feb-RU-ary in your head every single time you have to write the word. 

I don't know about you but I feel like this month has absolutely flown by. We packed a lot in (always I know!!) but still I can't believe it's March. Gonna mention just a few little happies here before the calendar page turns, so in no particular order....


Ours are in full bloom on the side hill and they lift my spirits every time I pull down the drive. It's the first real sign of spring here and I love it. 

Also, between you and me, pollen is the other first real sign of spring here, and we're seeing the beginning of that too. Pollen is truly a season all its own in this part of the country, but we're talking happies today so let's move on. 


Y'all my hubs has somehow kept this plant alive and blooming for several seasons now. This plant was given to my daughter by one of her students back in 2020, and it tipped over in her car on the way home causing a big section to break off. And all the dirt to spill in her car, but hubs took care of that too. She was going to trash the plant but hubs came to it's rescue and she's such a beauty. This year he also gave several bulbs from our plant to a neighbor and his is thriving too. 

Jesus Revolution. 

Hubs and I went to see this film over the weekend and we both absolutely loved it. A powerful story and  so well done. It's the kind of film that stays on your heart and mind even when it's over. In a nutshell this is the true story of a national spiritual awakening in the early 70's that originated within the teenage hippie community in Southern California. So good!! Go see it. 

The morning sky. 

February ending with a flourish...

Let's all keep calm and March on. 


  1. No flowers in our yard yet but the irises are looking healthy and need to be divided. The amaryllis is a true survivor and giving back out of gratitude. So glad you saw the movie and felt about it the same as I did. You may remember a former Hodgepodger, Debby. She shared her testimony with me how both she and her husband were saved during the revolution there and learned so much under Chuck Smith, and their son has pastored one of the Calvary Chapel churches there for almost 20 years. Such an amazing story out of an amazing story.

  2. Hats off to hubby for keeping that pretty plant alive. We want to drive the hour and a half to see Jesus Revolution, maybe this Saturday. My friends and I took in services at the original 'Chapel'. It will be interesting to see how they portray that time.

  3. I had a friend who told me Jesus Revolution was good. Maybe we can go see it.

  4. Yes, February has flown by so fast. Sorry about the pollen. The daffodil is so pretty. How awesome that he has kept the Amaryllis going each year. Thanks for your review on the movie. The sky is gorgeous. Can't get enough of it!
