My WeEk…OuR DrEaMs…OuR HoPeS…

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ It’s early, early, early morning, right now. And, I’m really glad that your on the “other” side of this screen…and aren’t able to see me with my hair pulled back in a ponytail, sipping tea, and eating the most delicious Austrailian strawberry red licorice from our local Trader Joes. I am seriously addicted to them, and today decided they’d make a fabulous breakfast. (grin) Well, so anyway, I’m glad I got that confession over with… because, I wouldn’t want you to think I’m little Miss Perfect health nut or anything like that. So, anyway how was your Memorial Day weekend? I hope that you had the opportunity to spend some extra time enjoying family, and friends, or even perhaps just hanging out at home. Those are the best ways to … Continue reading

My FrIdAy ShArE & LeT’s GeT OrGaNiZeD!

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡   When I was a teacher, Friday was our classroom “SHARE” day. Kids were allowed to bring “ONE” share item. Sometimes, they would try to sneak in more than one item, and I would have to thank them for sharing…and call on the next child. It’s a good thing, this isn’t the classroom. And, I hope you can visit a while, because today is Friday…and I have L.O.T.S to “SHARE”!              First, I just have to show you ALL the Mother’s Day cards I received from my little kiddos.                                 Teah’s card had a mixer on it. …she l.O.V.E.S to eat bake. The card from Earl, had a picture of … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Hope you had a great week, and that if you are a mom, hope to be a mom, or just happy with wherever you are in the mom world…I would like to wish all of you a Happy Mother’s Day. Being that I had thought last weekend was Mother’s Day, and did a Mother’s Day post http://www.marciascottagebythesea.com/2015/05/mothers-day-life-and-jeep/ today I thought I’d write a little post about my own kids. (grin) With 30 years of teaching behind me, yippie! I just might have been a “surrogate” mom for about 900 kids. Ha! Ha!       But, my real kids are the four I care for as lovingly, and dutifully as possible. Okay, so here’s a little FYI tidbit.  Several years before I had my kids, I started hosting Tea parties, … Continue reading

MoThEr’S DaY, LiFe, AnD a JeEp…♡

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Sooooo….how was your week? Are you ready for the weekend…any fun plans? My week has been similar to our weather. Sort of all over the place.  One extreme to the other. Just a few days ago it was cold, rainy, blizzardy. And, now the weather is in the mid 90’s.  So, whatdoyasay we go for a ride in my new jeep? Come on hop on in! As I was thinking about today’s post, I realized that I had lost a “week” somewhere along the road.  I thought this was Mother’s Day weekend. No doubt I’ve been feeling a little scattered, out of balance. Who knows, p.e.r.h.a.p.s  it has something to do with having our California home on the market, preparing to move to the Oregon Coast, and exchanging … Continue reading
