Friday Stuff...

  I think I caught a cold cootie from my daughter Angie. She's had a cold ...she caught from all her class. :):) Seems they have all been passing a cold back and forth.  I am hoping I can doctor this and be rid of it in say, two weeks.  LOL
 I am so thankful I bought these breads from Bob Evans while Angie and I were shopping this week.  A slice of cinnamon coffee cake and a steaming cup of coffee, got me started today. I have been using disinfectant wipes all thru the house this morning. I do not want Ted to get sick.
 Ted mowed our lawn Tuesday. I thought it was too soon....can you tell men that. Save your breath. :):)
A little robin came along to wish us good morning.  I have been listening to the birds when I can...we are getting so much rain. I am only out to put mail in the box and pick up any the carrier leaves . I do not want to spread this cold...if it is one. Just feeling stuffy.
  Wishing all a wonderful weekend. I am hoping spring is arriving where you live. XO

Shop Some, Eat Lots....

  Schools are having Spring break in our area.  Daughter  Angie and I went shopping and then to lunch. We shopped Kohl's and it was disappointing purchases for either of us.  We also went to T.J. Maxx. Saw this cute pillow. I did not buy any.
 But oh I love note papers and stationary very much. I looked at all of them.
   Picked up this little box of notes. I think because going to Paris is my continuing dream .
   First day of spring break for Emma. She goes with her mother and father to the cancer clinic, so Liz can take some tests. No results yet. Emma went along on the promise of having lunch at the Cheesecake Factory. After hours at the the point that now it is near supper time, they arrive at the eatery. Looks like Oh happy day for Pooh.:):)
 Waiting, waiting, waiting..."Mom I am starving."  LOL

  Finally a big burger and this the typical kid lunch?  :):)
 Oh at long last the delicious cheesecake. Look at that smile.  Soon Emma will be having her 13th birthday. Our baby granddaughter, the time went by in a flash for me.
  Hope all of you are safe , so many storms out there...we are to have some today and plenty of rain . Be safe. XO

 This is Savannah's origami projects. This piece of odd shaped paper...
 Turns into this cube when you blow air into the end.
  This is a dragon, Savannah made. I wish I had taken a couple more photos for a better view.
  This Wreath looking shape , when twisted ....
 turns into this star shape.  I am somewhat amazed at her making these. I love them. I think I am going to buy her some colorful papers to make things.
 Here's a bit of Easter on my table. This fake flower , I bought at the grocery last year, it's still very pretty. The little white bunny was made by my grandson , Korey, when he was in the first grade. The bunny stayed nice and  white , but the construction paper tag is say Nana on one side and Love Korey on the other. :):) I am blessed with my loving grandchildren.
  Hope all of you are  seeing some signs of spring. XO

Rainy Sunday.....

  Today is gray and rainy.  Well this morning was certainly dreary.

  There were some flower petals on the porch and I went looking to see if I could find their source. The neighbor's apricot tree has bloomed , somewhat, not the whole tree, just some branches.
 Going down the drive...those lines are worms. LOL...why don't robins  want to eat the worms on the driveways during rain??
 I checked out trees for blooms. This is the red bud tree. You can see the start of some blooms.
 This is the lilac bush starting to bud out , the leaves are getting bigger.
 The sedum is really growing fast.
  Spotted some violas that had grown in the walkways. One green thing to the left is a dandelion.
  So I think we can officially say, hello spring, here in Indiana. Took this pick from on line. Not my if I would have a clue as to how to do this.LOL
   My daughter Kathy has been down this weekend. She stayed with daughter, Angie. We just spent some  time together. Catching up and talking crafting.  Fun, fun, fun.
   Hope all of you have been enjoying your weekend. XO

Our Princess.....

  Our little princess is having a birthday soon. She will be 15. ...which makes me feel like a hundred. LOL.
 Savannah is a cutie pie. A bit shy and quiet.
 Having Skylar as a brother has made her tough. :):)
  The blonde hair and the blue eyes that make me smile. She looks like her mother, my daughter Karen.
 Here she is driving without a licenses. No insurance either. She did say the other day, she can't wait till she can drive herself to school. Saying this after her brother drove her home from school...that makes me wonder...hmmm?
 This is a picture of her and her mother at a twenty-one pilots' concert. Karen took her and her best friend as part of her birthday gift.
 I am thankful for this sweet gentle granddaughter. She loves choir and art. She's most often on the honor roll with all her classes. She has a fondness for Origami. Loves crafting...wish she lived closer.:):) Just wishing her the best birthday.
  It's spring like temperatures here today and certainly windy enough to fly a kite. Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend. XO

Wednesday's Play Date.....

   This is Tuesday's foggy sunrise. I walked down to the road to get the sun just coming up over the fog layer.....then the fog burned off quickly. We are having pretty days mostly. But they are chilly.
  Yesterday, we went to my daughter Lizzy's.  Max was going to be there with his mommy. I wanted you to see the front of his shirt.
 Lynzie's shirt says, "You're killing me Smalls" She has shirts for Max and soon to be baby Luke, that say Smalls on them. If you have ever seen the movie , "Sandlot" , you'll understand the meaning. It's about a new kid in town , who knows nothing of baseball, and his name is Smalls.
  Max was on the sofa with his mom and grandmother, then Ozzy the cat jumped up next to him. Max petted on him , which the cat seemed to love. If you even look at Ozzy he will jump in your lap.
  Here's a shot of Sam the dog. He is doing so much better . He also wants petting and hugs. So Ted and I enjoyed a few hours at Lizzy's with her family and pets. Matt was home for a while but had a doctor's appointment. He just had sinus surgery last Friday. He and Ted talked about their fishing trip coming up later this spring. I loved being with all of them. So it was a fun day. Honestly, I carried Max around and he's hefty, I don't know how Lynzie does it.
   Hope today is a great day for all. XO

Sunday & First Day of Spring......

 Sunday was a pretty day . In the high 40's. We had a quiet day . Filled all the bird feeders. I cleaned the porch of leaves and pine needles.

 As the sun was setting , I was thankful for a slow day here.
 The sun is setting in a new spot, with Spring here.
  The little child statue holding a jar with a firefly, lit up in the evening.
 This is the bright spot of yesterday. Ted took me to Cracker Barrel for lunch.  This is just inside the door. Lots of colorful gifts to buy. I should have taken a picture of our lunch. It certainly was good.
 This is our first day of spring. We had thunder storms, early and again in the afternoon.
  This is what I bought on my trip to Horton's on Saturday . A small garden flag, cute and funny. A kitchen towel .

  I loved this coffee scoop. So cute and sturdy. I like the cardboard cup shaped holder. I thought that was a clever package.
 A print of some bluebirds and a small love sign. I did not buy much. I will be going back for some plants as the weather warms up. That might be awhile.
  Wishing all a great day. XO

Shopping Day....

  Entering Horton's at the side door. Look at this cute little potting shed they have made. This is the spot where when the weather's nice on Market events, they make up bouquets to sell.  You can design your own at times.  I met up with my daughter, Angie, at her house and we went to town. I did not get a picture of us. Too busy talking.
  You will find lots of signs in the store.  All sizes. I like these small ones that can fit nicely on a shelf.
  Here's a blinged out horse shoe for a farm girl.
  I liked this sign myself. :):)
 Oh boy that fudge was cut and ready to sell. Isn't this a beautiful fudge. I am so sorry, I missed some of the names.
 This one is snickers. Yummy.
  This looks so good too.  Mr. Horton did pass out samples. He even had a special fudge for a little boy who could not have nuts. When cutting the fudge they do not cut one and then just cut the cross contamination of nuts.
  This is now the kid corner. Fashion for the wee ones and lots of toys and books.
  Big girl fashions. Not all in the same area, so many can look and not feel crowded.
 Statement t-shirts.  I think we all know this .
  This is in a " fixer upper "reference. 
 After shopping, Angie took me to Subway shop for lunch. I ran into  beautiful blogger Cindy , The Bee Lady of Hill Top Farm. She was getting a later start , and we were finished. But it was nice to get a photo of us together. She is just so nice.
   Well today is to be slow here....we shall see.  The sun wants to shine . Hope you are all having a good day. XO
