The Blog Fog.....

I have been suffering from the "Blog Fog"
over the past few weeks....

You know what I mean when things are just not as clear 
as they should be.....

This never ending Winter does not help...
Nor the fact that my laptop continues to slowly die.....

You think it is hard for us...
Imagine how all the birdies are feeling..
One day hot..
One day cold..
Next day snow...

Face it Ladies...
There are times we should have to fight our way through...
Look at the brighter side of life....
Don't you just love the pop of red....
so unexpected.....

That is just what I decided to do.....
Look for color throughout my home....

 Notice the patina on that old silver platter behind the birdhouse...
and the Greens on the house....
Just lovely!

 I am really excited about my new rug in the Living area....
Oh the colors..
Can't wait to show you my finished area....
Remember the old living room
Well.. all that is gone.....
I am soooo excited to show you those changes..
a later post....
Keep visiting...
You do not want to miss this...

 Yep a little color goes a lonnnng way!
It just seems to bring on the JOY!....

Of course, the Grands bring JOY....
A beautiful pic of those Grands on a little colorful box..
Makes me very Happy!
Can't you see me smiling....
I am!

 If you are suffering from the "Blog Fog"
Like me.....
Stroll around your house...
Take notice of the colorful things around you...
Every Day can be a colorful day....
If you just look.....

This is the day the Lord has made;

 let us rejoice today and be glad in it!

 Psalm 118:24

Colorful Blessings to you all!

  1. Oh Patty! I am suffering from Blog Fog for sure. We moved from our home and land and pond and my chickens~( I could go on and on) for my husband's job. I feel like not only do I need to reorganize life but I need to reorganize my blog too. I am with you. Farming on Faith lost her farm but not her faith. I have to make this little three acres a farm some way ~ some how. I am trying to get inspired ~ warm weather will help for sure.
    Thanks for your sweet comment about my header. Have a great afternoon!

  2. This is just what I needed today. Thank you!

  3. I've been changing things around my house, bright colors, new patterns, flowers... trying to brighten up our space despite the snow falling outside ;)
    Love your new rug, can't wait to see how you transform this room!
    Happy Spring!

  4. Loving those red knobs! Re-doing a room is lots of work, but so rewarding when it's finished! Looking forward to the reveal! xo

  5. i love the church. thanks, for stopping by today. hope you are well & so nice to meet you. have a special day. we are having snow here in VA. take care. ( :

  6. Hi Patty, love the pop of red drawer pulls. I can imagine how gorgeous your new room is. So happy for you. Redesigning always pulls me out of a blog fog of sorts. Making home changes is so much fun and I get this virus every new season. LOL
    Blessings to you my friend.

  7. Beautiful pictures Patty. Just beautiful. Pops of color do enhance our lives. Pops of good friend enhance it too and pops of scripture really enhances it. Your blog brought all these to me today. SO happy to come visit you.

  8. I can feel your joy! I've missed you. So glad you are back. We had to buy a new computer. It is honestly slower than our other and it has more bytes. Love the bucket! Can't wait to see your room. You are blessing, dear sista.

  9. Can't wait to see your changes. I love the glimpses of color around your home. What a sweet photo of the grands too.

  10. Very inspirational - the verse is one of my favorites. We have the colors of spring but not the weather.

  11. I have the blog fog too! As I woke up to snow covering my little sprouts that have been trying to push through the ground for some time now. Your photos of your home are lovely and I love that picture of your grandkids! Happy week to you lady! Nicole xoxo

  12. Love this post and so glad to have you back. I can't wait to see what you did to the living room! You are such a tease! Love your idea of strolling your own place for great ideas and color!

  13. Beautiful Patty! I love, love, love your house :) I can't wait for the changes. I love decorating house too.
    Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. I loved that you said you're a bride too.

    P.S. I love the grandkids pictures. :)

  14. Patty, I cannot believe you have grandchildren, you look so young! We're all so very tired of winter here in Michigan, too. So many bloggers are showing pictures of their gardens and flowers, and it is just not happening here! I am doing a little spring decorating inside, just to keep my spirits up! Blessings to you today.

  15. Love, Love, Love those red knobs! :)

  16. Love, Love, Love those red knobs! :)

  17. Hi Patty. I know what you mean but I've never thought of it in that way. Those of us who use a lot of color can surely fight our way out of the blog fog. And then, sometimes, those who use a lot of white must have a peaceful feeling most of the time. I wish I knew the official answer to this problem. Just keep on doing, no matter what, I guess..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  18. Oh the suspense! I can't wait to see what you have done - thanks for leaving us hanging :) I agree with Deborah, you look way too young to have grandchildren! I am sure they are a sweet blessing.

    Hugs to you, dear Patty!

  19. I know all too well about the blog fog. I also really love the print on those rugs. It's very nice.

  20. Hi Patty, I enjoyed looking through your photos today. Love the pops of color and looking forward to seeing your finished Living Room.

    I've had Motivation Fog. My motivation to do/finish some projects is there but I can't see it clearly for the fog!


  21. Hi Patty! Thank for coming over to say hi! Thank God it's springtime! It may not feel like it right now, but........at least it's here! Love the red knobs BTW!


Thanks for stopping by The Foothills Farmhouse...Your comments are greatly appreciated. Blessings!
