Super Saturday

Just a test for a possible Super Saturday to take the place of Joyful Thursdays. I can’t seem to make up my mind!

But I am grateful and happy for all kinds of things. So I will share some of those with you now under a temoporary name change:)))


1) I actually got to spend some time with my good buddy Bev who now lives in California…she was in the area so I went over to bug her a bit….loved every bit of it:))))

isn't she awesome?

2) I’m still enjoying the green of spring…the flowers on the trees are still hanging in there, so beautiful…and sunshine almost every day. Ahhh, lovely!

lilacs?? ....almost!

this little beauty will be huge!

another one growing its way to beauty

3) I just watched an hour-long program on TV with nothing but Nat King Cole singing. I love his mellow voice!! It made me head to the internet to see if I could find some of his songs to play on the piano!!

some of my dad's old songbooks:)

My head is still confused about how to continue my grateful pages. Hmmm, maybe I won’t name them a specific name. Maybe they’ll just appear whenever they appear!  Unless folks are looking for them, I guess that part doesn’t matter. Are you looking for them under a certain name??

Questions and Answers

I am totally behind with my posts and wondering what I should do….where am I  and who am I?? What are you looking for and what do I wish to share?


Would you prefer more info on parenting and tips that I might share, … or are you more interested in my life and my family, ….how can I know what you are interested in or maybe this is all about what I know and am interested in…it’s a very strange conundrum. I am here, but why???


Please leave me a note….let me know what you would like to see. I have lots of personal info, but I also would love to share parenting info for those of you who are interested. I’m  a bit stymied at the moment….should I just share random info with you, do you have particular interests, or what in particular would you like to see here????


Please respond….comments and questions are always welcome…let me know if my blog is even needed!


Thanks for reading….let me know if I’m needed:))

Changing?? Changing what??  Let’s remain calm….small changes can be good for you, right?? Are you still looking for Happiness Tuesdays? I kind of hope that you are…but the small change around here is…changing to Joyful Thursdays!! Why?? I have no idea…seriously…just a small change to stir things up. I hope you will follow along on Thursdays to see the things that make me both happy and joyful!


Today, how about some changing weather:

this was Saturday morning...

an angel checking out the snow...

The clouds were amazing…the temps in the early morning were zero one morning and six the next!

The very next day the temperature was nearly 50 (!) and the rain washed all of the snow away!  Sometimes it pays to be lazy. I hadn’t shoveled the driveway and sidewalk, but …ta, daaa… it has all disappeared :)


Changes of all kinds…be ready for them! Choose to embrace them!


Please come visit us on Thursday for our ‘happy times’!

Happiness Tuesdays #16

Continuing on my quest to find things to tell you that make me happy and hopefully will spread some joy your way!


Happiness Tuesdays #16

Here are three things that make me happy:


1) I have moved from Blogger to WordPress…and I hope successfully!!  Thank you to designer Linda Lee for actually moving my followers over…so I can continue onward from 97!!  Come join me:)

2) Kindness spoken by others!

3) Kind actions shown by others!


Here is a great quote for you, borrowed from the blog


“Only speak words that make souls stronger.”

Ann Vaskamp


Thank you for coming along with me on this strange journey. The next few weeks will involve some testing and experimenting on the blog. If you have any suggestions for me…throw them at me! The suggestions I already have received have been so helpful.


Happy Parenting!


97 followers…oh,no!

     Hello all my blogger friends!! Over this coming weekend I will be moving to WordPress, and I’m freaking out!!! I just began this blogging adventure at the end of October so I still have quite a learning curve to work with. I am now moving so that all of our website info will coordinate with each other…our workshops, blog, events, sassy kids parties, etc….will all match and fit together.
But, because I am still pretty technologically illiterate, moving from what seems at least a little familiar to me to a totally new atmosphere is very hard!  I hope you will join me on this new adventure.

this is what I feel like right now!!

     I had just gotten to 97 followers on Google Friend Connect and now I believe I have to start over:(      So…I am hoping that you will join this new site and continue to follow our Childhood Myths blogs. I’m sure most of you remember how excited you were when you reached the 100 follower pinnacle….I was SOOO close. Please help so that I will be ready to plan a giveaway when I reach that peak!
      The new site is for the home page…you can then follow from the blog site.  If you have questions for me or ideas that may help me please feel free to let me know by way of comment or email.
      For my FaceBook people, my new site will automatically share the blog with you…but it will not look the same and will not have the Sassy Kids name, but will have the Childhood Myths name instead. Hopefully, you will continue to visit and comment. You have no idea how much your comments mean to me…thank you so much!!
     If anyone from the blog or from FaceBook is interested in having us present a parent workshop…any size, from a few parents, to a classroom’s parents, a school, community group, church group…or a teacher workshop of any size, please feel free to contact us. We will be happy to present ideas and tips to help make parenting and /teaching easier for any and all groups.
     Any hints you have for us about the blog and how to set it up to be helpful to you, just let us know;)

Happy Parenting!
