In Support of Purple Day

Have you ever felt alone in the world – with no one to lean on, no one who really understands?

I know of a little 10 year old girl that felt this way, but instead of staying silent, she is speaking out in hope of making a difference in this world, hoping to make a difference in someone else’s life.

Please take a minute to read about Purple day and Cassidy – you can find the purple day site at:

Also you can show your support for Purple day and Cassidy, by posting your own Purple Day post on your blog, sharing the Purple Day site with your friends and family, by posting to twitter, facebook and anywhere else you think you can reach out to even just one person.

Cassidy is also a guest blogger this week on Perspectives located at: . Please take a moment to visit her over there and show your support. 

On March 26th I am going to be wearing purple to support Epilepsy awareness, Purple Day and Cassidy. What about you?


Please let me know if you post to your blog, twitter, facebook or even just have a ‘purple’ picture to share so I can spot you on Sightings!

Lion or Lamb?

For as long as I can remember the month of March was always awaited with much anticipation – what would the first of the month bring?

“In like a lion – out like a lamb

In like a lamb – out like a lion”

I have always enjoyed the first option of the two, as it ment that once the weather turned and started getting nice, summer was well on it’s way. With the second option, it seems like you are just getting used to the nicer days, and then wham… the weather would get miserable.

I woke up this morning to the sound of pouring rain — so for us this year it will be a “In like a lion – out like a lamb”. So what about you?

Hey everyone, how are you doing? I cannot believe it was Valentines day when I last wrote in this blog. OIY, time sure does have a way of getting away from me. Although those of you who have me on facebook know that I am still alive and kicking about, doing normal Truddle stuff.

Yesterday I spent the day making strawberry jam. 39 half pint jars worth of strawberry jam. Today it will be blackberry jelly and raspberry jam. I know, crazy time of the year to be doing jam, but actually if you think about it, it really is not so crazy. Making it this time of the year I am not fighting the heat! It was actually very pleasant. Although this is not the weekend I had planned on doing the jam – it had to be done. We had our beef order come in, so we had to clear room out of the freezer.

So now that I have peeked in here, it is time for me to head back into the kitchen and get things going. I will try to check in again a bit sooner next time!
