Tuesday Turn About #191 Jump Into Spring
Welcome to the party! We are getting ready for the turn of the season, believe it or not. It’s Tuesday Turn About #191 Jump into Spring!
TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #191 JUMP INTO SPRING
At the last party, we celebrated with flowers!
It’s the last day of February! Can you believe it???
If I remember correctly, the first party of February landed on the first of February this year! Funny coincidence, huh? (Maybe not. LOL!)
This week, we are going to start jumping into spring with some tips and tricks for the season, and a sweet project that you can start now!
But First, an Update…
Last week, I was laid-out-flat with a bronchial cold that started two Saturdays ago, and then a stomach bug that hit the following Monday. At least I THOUGHT it was a stomach bug.
Thankfully, Mom has stayed well this whole time, and I am now starting to feel like my normal self. God is good, even in the hard times!
What About My Car?
There is GREAT news on the car front, as well!
The insurance company DID end up totaling my Corolla. The good news… they gave me $1600 more than what the car was worth! Praise God!
AND, it took me one day to find my new-to-me Camry with low mileage, and it cost less than what I received for my Corolla! Praise God, number two!
What’s more… my Camry is the same color as my Corolla was, which is my fave color of green! EXCEPT, the Camry looks amazing… my Corolla… not so much! God blesses us, even in the small details!
Be sure to hop on over to My Family Thyme and Reinvented Delaware to check out SIX additional features from TTA!
If you haven’t been featured at MWA this week, you just may be featured there!
Weekly Household Tip
A little bit more about my stomach bug.
I normally take Bee Keeper’s Propolis when I start to feel a cold coming on, and after one or two doses, I’m good to go!
However, THIS time, I took a bit more (no more than the recommended dosage), but I think it was too much. See, I’m allergic to bee stings and, unbeknownst to me, you aren’t supposed to take bee products when you’re allergic to bee stings!
I think the stomach bug was actually my system “dumping” the propolis, especially since no one else ended up getting it.
And my point is…
So, my household tip for this week is, if you are allergic to bee stings, don’t use bee products! LOL!
Weekly Blogging Tip
Today, I want to talk about a blogging mistake many of us make (I’m raising my hand very high right now).
Many of us tend to blog about things that only interest ourselves. Remember, our audience may have a wider range of issues that need to be resolved, and we can help them with that, even if it’s something we might not need help with!
So, step out of your comfort zone, and address problem areas or interests that concern your readers. Your followers will thank you… and me! 😉

Always a joy to have you with us, Debra! Hugs!
God is so good, even in the hard times…such a great message you shared. Awesome, that you gave Him the Glory here on your blog, by your sharing what’s been going on with you lately. You are inspiring others by your words. Thank you so much for hosting this blog party Julie! Glad you are feeling much better, and things went well with your car situation. God turns everything around for our good, to those that trust in Him. I truly believe that. Have a great evening.
Thanks, Christie! So glad to have you with us! And so thankful to the Lord for all He’s given… all this and Jesus, too!
What a week you had! I’ve had my own @#$%$# car week. My ever reliable car sprayed coolant all over the engine when my daughter was driving it on the highway. She’s fine but the car’s a goner. Repairs would cost more than the car’s worth sigh . . .
Oh, no!!! I hope you find a new car soon, and at a great price! Glad your daughter was kept safe!
Thank you for hosting Julie. The cement eggs are a great idea. Congratulations on the new car, god bless.
Thanks, Leanna… so good to see you at the last parties! Always love your projects!

Yes… I’m enjoying both! LOL! Thanks, sweet friend!
So many fabulous blessings, Julie! I’m thankful that you’re on the mend and feeling better this week. I’m excited about your car too. That is fantastic! It always amazes me how God shows up for us in the big things and the little things too. Thanks so much for the sweet feature. I really appreciate it! Hope you have the best week and thank you for hosting, CoCo

Thanks, Kristin. We both know how hard it is on our elderly mothers when they get sick along with their dementia. I’m very thankful she hasn’t been sick since her bout with C 18 months ago. 🙂 You are so welcome for the feature!
