To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

MAINE IN MARCH AND A DAY OF SUNSHINE!
March at Pine Point Beach in Maine!
That's me....wrapped and tucked into layers of warm clothes!
Mainer's walk on the beach any time of year!
It was fun, actually....but really, really cold!
This is the darling up in Kennbunkport on a March day!
This spot is right down the road from Walker's Point,
The Bush's summer home!'
When the mist rolled in from the bay,
it became gray and damp.....
we often drove up here on weekends!
Those were great times, but we sure are happy
to have our feet planted firmly in
The Great State of Texas!
This was just an ordinary day,
but we loved and appreciated each and every moment.
What a blessing ordinary days are...
the birds are singing and the sun is shining....
I love fresh fruit and sausage and biscuits
for breakfast, don't you?
Our gorgeous tree just outside our kitchen window
leafed out in the last three days!
I spent the morning outside
listening to the birds and
watching the wind spinner whirl around,
while enjoying morning coffee.
I caught up with the
newest Southern Living,,,
there is a wonderful article on
Barbara and Jenna Bush....
just love these girls!
I keep the bird feeder full to the brim
so that Mae Mobley is entertained....
I bought this feeder from
The Christmas Tree Store in Scarborough, Maine!
It's fun to look forward to summer
and plan the pool parties and barbecues!
The cottonwood trees in the greenbelt
are showing their beautiful spring branches!
I need a weekend of planting the pots...soon!
I love this little bird bath....
It is so sweet to see a Cardinal land on the edge
and take a few sips of water....
Is this color of violet not the prettiest?
Do you have any of these glass self-watering bulbs?
these have lasted for about fifteen years already!
I decided to purchase a pretty
outside serving tray for the patio...
so glad I did!
I know there will be a million uses for this!
A spring day and ice cold lemonade go hand -in -hand,
don't you think?
Little Debbie Easter Cakes are being
served this afternoon....
I suppose this might be a Texas High Tea.....sorta'.....
Get em' Maypole...
She was a tiny kitten when we bought her perch.....
