Good morning friends! Today is International Rare Disease Day, if you have something purple, wear it to show your support! Purple has always been my favorite color, so it's not a problem for me to wear something in honor of my son Rhys who suffers from a rare disease:)
I don't know where February has gone to, it whipped by so quickly! Today we are expecting a snow and freezing rain storm. It was to hit earlier this morning but now it's changed to around lunch time. The kids went to school so I am hoping the weather is not too bad for their ride home cause I can't go and get them :P Since it is so gloomy around here I am having a hard time getting around to get stuff done. My wonderful husband brought in the wood for me before he went into work saving me from slipping on the ice! Yesterday I moved all the furniture around in our bedroom, that was not fun when you have a small room and lots of furniture :( I need to straighten up my closet so I can shut the doors and tidy up my crafting area (which I want to move into a different room, lol), than our room is done. I also went to the goodwill store yesterday and found some more wooden bowls...can never have enough of them! I think I just might settle down and paint them and stain them, spring colors I am planning...something to brighten the house up. First I will sip on my coffee infused with Irish Cream, yum! to give me a boost :D
I am a stay at home mom of 5 children and I am married to my wonderful husband James for almost 9 years. We live on a 75 acre farm in the rolling hills of Kendal, Ontario which has been in my husband's family since the mid 1880's. Our house is over 150 yrs old and I love it! We have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 1 horse,1 hamster, and numerous chickens and ducks. Life is never dull around here to say the least. I love antiques and the simpler way of life and I have a interest in Prim Decor which is slowly but surely taking over my home. I also dabble in candle making. soap making and prim crafts but I have alot to learn.
My motto is ;
I BELIEVE, MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!, since our 9 yr old son was born with a rare genetic disorder called Hurlers Syndrome/ MPS1 in which he received a bone marrow transplant at the age of 11 months old to slow down the progression of his disease... during this time he was so ill that he was not expected to recover and come home with us... BUT HE DID!! And against all odds, he is still with us today :) So Believe That Miracles Can Happen!!
