Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 65
Since Mother’s Day is coming up, I thought some fun gift ideas would be appreciated. As much as I love being showered with luxurious gifts, I will always choose something homemade over something fancy.
As a mother of 2, I appreciate something made from scratch that much more. Ever since my kids were little, they have always made their cards themselves, whether for a birthday, holiday,,, or special event.
Even though they are now young adults, they still craft their own cards with better art skills!
Share your own story of a wonderful Mother’s Day. What do you prefer, homemade or bought? I would love to hear.
In honor of preparing for this holiday, I was hoping you could take a look at what I have to offer. There are tons of recipes, crafts, and easy DIYs to make Mother’s Day a lot easier.
A Personal Note from Janine
My daughter and I are so close. About five days out of the week, she and I hike the hills in our area. We walk and talk about our life struggles and successes during this time. I’m so happy that we have each other and that she makes being a mom a pleasure.
I guess the love we all have for each other is mutual since she laughs and says she plans to live with us for the rest of her life. But we know that she needs to leave the nest eventually and make it out on her own.
But in the meantime, I’m enjoying the next couple of years with her.
Life is busy for our family, and this summer, we have a couple of weeks with our son before he heads up north for his first job. He has matured and grown up into a wonderful young man. I will treasure the time with him.
I’m enjoying each day and being present with my family and friends these days.
So, relish each moment with your loved ones.
Have a marvelous weekend,

This Week’s Tip – Taking Care of Cut Flowers
Taking Care of Cut Flowers
The closer we get to summer, the more eager I become to decorate with flowers. Whether I’m planting them in my backyard, placing them in a vase, or decorating them in my home. But for now, we will focus on putting them in your choice of a vase.
When you get your flowers, take the time to prepare them in a vase, and add the flower preserve to the water to make the bouquet last longer.
After placing your gorgeous blooms in the vase on the second day, check the water to see if your flower needs refilling. Replenish them as required.
My Latest Obsession – Our Outdoor Patio
Getting Our Patio Ready for Summer
We just overhauled our yard over the winter. This five-month-long project meant redoing our flooring, pool, and landscaping.
Last week, I had our wood pergola pressure washed, and now it’s awaiting my paint job. My husband is patiently waiting for me to complete this job so he can put up his sun sail and our outdoor lights. He gently reminds me to start my painting, and I hope to get around to it this weekend.
I’m so excited to get this outdoor dining room complete and onto working on our lounging area. I had our outdoor seat cushion reupholstered, and now I have to chalk paint the wood structure.
As you can see, I have many painting projects in my future!
