First Idaho Treasures!

The cute strawberry plate was a dollar at Michael's and grangirl Elizabeth wants a snack on it when she comes to my house. It was fun to have her and her mom Sara along and to hear Elizabeth say, "Gramma, isn't that just soooo,so cute!" ☺

This vintage bowl was from the GW and I'm almost positive it's the same pattern that my mom had for a while. Once my photo albums are unpacked, I will look at a Christmas photo from 1972 to make sure. I think my mom must have really liked Blue and Green! Come to think of it, her Christmas lights on the outside of the house were Blue and Green, too!
Well, I'm still living half here at the motel and half at my boys apartments. (and I'm quite weary of it, thank you!) I long for some alone time and a bedroom door to shut!
Bobby, Micah and I went to be interviewed by a small local horse/cattle ranch about a large rental apartment there. Half of the rent would be in chores. The view from up there is absolutely amazing and there is a Palomino horse there that I've already fallen in love with (silly me!) Several other people are interviewing for this place too and we won't know if we can get it until the week end. We're also still waiting to hear back from the U of I about a job for Bobby there. Waiting, waiting, waiting! That's my middle name these days! One Day At A Time Sweet Jesus!
It feels so good to do something "normal' like take pics for my blog. My quiet/alone time is so limited and I can't blog with noise in the back ground so I blog when I can. I love all you girls and miss you so much!

I didn't realize they had a Michaels in Moscow, honey! Take a ride to Grangeville and enjoy that fantastic view in the spring. It's gorgeous.

Holly, It is so good hearing from you again. Your world is turned upside down right now, but I know good things are to come for you. Best wishes and prayers for the right home and job for Bobby. I've never seen that pattern before, but blue and green was a popular color combination when I was a teenager. Have a great day! Twyla

I have been following your journey and really love how positive and go with the flow you have been. I'm sure you have your moments but I sense your faith is strong and trusting the Lord as you travel. Have a great day!

Hey Holly,
The plate is so cute and so is the bowl that you found that was like your mama's. I know it brought back sweet memories for you. I can imagine the fun you had shopping around with the girls too...It's so wonderful that you are able to spend time with your grandma and daughter in-law now! :)

Girl, I know you are getting ready for your own place to call home. I can put myself in your shoes, and I understand. Everything will fall into place soon, I just know it will. Hang in there sweetie :) It won't be long...I hope the job at the farm, with the apartment included will come through for y'all. It sounds like a good deal until you can find your home to buy. We managed an apartment complex one time, a long ago and we got our rent,and everything included for our work...it was a good deal. I know God has good things in store for you and your family. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers always.
So glad to see you posting! Hope you sleep well, and have a beautiful weekend!
Big Hugs,
