Scenes From Our Week – Week 25, A Cheer Up Gift, Flowers and a Bookshelf

I had gotten the idea on PINTEREST to send someone a “Cheer Up” package with everything being yellow.  So, I changed it a bit and sent a “Happy Spring” package to my niece who is in PA School.  I found some neat yellow items on sale at ZULILY.com and the rest I got at Target.  It was fun putting the package together and she was sure excited to get it!
Package included:
Peeps, Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, Crystal Light, Yellow Nail Polish,
Yellow flowered dishwashing gloves, A yellow flower dish scrubber, and Lemon Drops. 
My amaryllis is blooming and is just gorgeous.  Thank goodness my mom “wintered” it for me so I could enjoy the blooms again this spring!
Reagan took this photo of me before I went out with Pat for dinner.  I was excited to be wearing my new boots. 
I’ve been wanting Pat to build me a shelf for all my cookbooks.  I had been keeping them in baskets in various spots in the kitchen and I really wanted to clear up some space and have them all in one spot. So, I finally got my wish……
BEFORE
AFTER
Pat built this shelf right on from the kitchen cupboards.  Sherwin Williams matched up our stain perfectly and you would never know that shelf wasn’t supposed to be there.  I just love it and it has freed up a lot of space and makes it so much easier to get to my cookbooks.  And we have a little workstation where the kids can do homework or work on the computer, if needed.  I just think Pat did an awesome job! 

We are absolutely loving this warm weather here in Iowa.  We hope it is here to stay!  We are also gearing up for the Easter season with Palm Sunday next week and then Easter.  A lot of school and church things coming up!  Stay tuned……………
