What's Shakin' Bacon?

Why is your fireplace on in the middle of May? Yesterday we had an unexpected snow storm and the temps have been miserable ever since. 😕

What movie are you watching at this moment? The Pajama Game, starring Doris Day. 😊

Who is watching the movie with you? Darcie Doll

What was the highlight of your day? Going out for lunch with my 4 kiddos. We wanted to support the youth council's hamburger stand. It's Black and White Days this week (which could explain the weather! 😉).

What is Black and White Days? It's an annual community event, which started as a Holstein show back in 1912. There's Little Miss pageant winners, a parade, a horse pull, a cow-a-bunga race, cattle show, etc. all week long.

Sounds fun! What else is happening at the moment? Let's see- David's in Toronto and will be back tomorrow night. He's traveling for work a lot these days. The kids and I have been busy decluttering our house. It feels so good to simplify our lives.

How's homeschooling goin…

I Just Feel Like Blogging!

I'm so happy it's Spring! I'm loving having all of my college kids home. I adore my new Primary calling. Six years, people! That's how long I've been out of Primary. Until now. I am so thankful to a loving Father in Heaven for this calling. He answers prayers! I have missed Primary so much. I was in heaven on Sunday at church. I even braved bearing my testimony. Why do I always weep when I do so? Sigh. My three college kids, Zach, Darcie and Marissa are attending a singles ward. I miss having them sit by us in Sacrament meeting, but I'm glad there are singles wards. I think it's good for them, and how fun that they can attend church together!

Besides what I've already mentioned, I am grateful for...

The beautiful weather we're having. The green grass. Cows mooing across the street. This country setting and the lovely valley we call home. My Sony camera! I love taking pictures, even though I'm still pretty amateurish. I can't get enough of t…

Welcome 2017!

I want to invite anyone who stumbles upon this to visit me at my new blog, Camie's Cozy Corner. I'd be honored if you followed me there.

This is one of my favorite gifts from this Christmas. This lovely quilt was made by my talented sister-in-law who wanted to do something special for us after our two families spent a magical vacation in Disney World together this past May. We will cherish this quilt for many years to come.

Another favorite gift is this beautiful rendering of the Logan temple at night. The lovely couple who had been living in our basement until just recently gave us this for Christmas and it means so much to me. There is a story behind this print. It's the print of an original painting made by an artist the wife knew personally from her childhood. The artist has since passed away from cancer. 

In case you hadn't heard, we have moved home! We hope to be here for the next year at least. This move has put so much joy in my heart. I finally feel like this …
