Creativity With The Best

Went on a walk with Sonrisa & Rizo today!!! {I have the best roomies ever]
We are hosts tonight-we are doing lots of homemade stuff!

I will have pictures tomorrow!!

My second interview with Keystone Compounding Pharmacy went great today–it was basically a strength test and some questions. I passed with flying colors, thanks to all the prayers!!! {I called my dad right before I went into my interview and he prayed with me over the phone–I love you Daddy!!!}

The head pharmacist is definitely open to waiting for me, until I hear back from St. Mary’s within 2 weeks. Which is a huge compliment. He wants to make sure that if he can have me, he’ll get me. But, he did say “I respect you wanting St. Mary’s over Keystone, they have a lot to offer you.”

Today, I found out I’ll have a job no matter what. So now, its God’s choice whether I work at St. Mary’s or not…well, it actually has been His choice all along…but now, I know for sure that Keystone is an offered option, not just a possibility.

What really fueled me for the interview was Rizo, getting up while I was gone running, to make cinnamon pancakes for breakfast!!!! Peanut butter and maple syrup topped off with a strawberry and a glass of apple juice….I have the best roomies in the world…this is gonna be the best year yet.

I’m off to finish the decorating and fooding for the party with Rizo!!!

Yay creativity and roomies!!!


Blooming Art


Porch before my gardening hands went wild

some plants from home and some I bought at Romence Gardens one mile away


A couple of tins and a bucket for planting…


Corner of my cement patio outside my bedroom. Aloe plant and two orchids


Bucket arrangement, couple o’ vines and a yellow begonia!


2 hanging pots, wind chime, basil, oregano, thyme, moss rose, two ‘step on me’ succulents, and a vine.. I later added a mosaic to incorporate some of Mi Amor’s art!


Sonrisa came home and LOVED it.
{I always enjoy her encouraging words}
I’m looking forward to the friendship that will bloom side-by-side with these flowers.


I bought my first car today!!!
’99 Dodge Intrepid

I named it Lila (lee-lah) it's Swedish (my heritage) for purple


Well, it had a slight ‘smoker’s scent’, so I whipped up my creative side of my brain.
Homemade Air Fresheners

So, after taking some fabric and yarn, sewing and threading, I have three hand-made air freshener bags!
I will hang one each on the back of my driver and passenger seats, and have one on my steering wheel adjustment lever.
As you can see, one pouch has lavender, one essential oil, and one candles.
They all have great scents that blend wonderfully together!
This is a great way to save money and utilize whatever free time you have.
