The last two days have been hectic and I haven’t been home. Therefore, I didn’t have my list of “March Art Challenge.”  So, I need to make up for lost time!

Day 7: Sleep

I’m cheating on this on a bit. My FAVORITE all  time food is Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. (notice the caps – that is because this food is worth the respect!!) 

I’m a country girl, after all! Just give me this food with fresh sliced tomatoes and a big glass of sweetened iced tea – Bliss!!

Truthfully, though, I haven’t eaten that exact meal in several years. I haven’t fried chicken in years! And I don’t eat it often…

But I also like many other foods and one of them is a favorite from my childhood – bierocks.  Those I do fix every once in a while because my youngest son requests them! He can keep them in the freezer and take a couple to work with him for lunch.

This picture was taken the last time I made bierocks to take to Jay in Weatherford! Of course, I had to eat a few myself!!

When I had children, I guess I just thought we would all “grow up” and live in the same town. That is a fairy tale and I am so very happy for those of you who get to live that fairy tale. But my family is spread from here to there and from there to here.

So, Family.

When one starts thinking of "Family" - one could go on and on!!

 I have many I consider my family who live all around the States - Vince and Deb, Tom and Karen, Steve, Robert and Minda - all the children from these in-laws!!

I also have Christian Brothers and Sisters that I am very close to and I am so thankful for. But for the sake of space!!! I only mentioned my immediate family in the pictures!!!

Day 2 Prompt: Flower

Kansas daffodils in March! It seems as if I get a picture of our daffodils every year covered in snow!! Some years they are even blooming. But not this year.

March Art Challenge by and 


I found this challenge on pinterest.  A is going to join me but he is posting his photos on instagram and face book. 

Day 1 prompt: Water

This weekend in Kansas we are in the ice age! So when I saw the prompt  “water” I had to chuckle!  I always think of the pond first when water is suggested for a photo – this time it wasn’t any different. I looked at that cold frozen pond and gave a shiver!
