It's Getting Closer!!

My friend Shelly in Wisconsin saw some Robins and I have seen a few flocks of Canada Geese flying over. We actually made it into the 40's today and now things are a muddy mess, still lots of mounds of snow but getting better. I keep looking at my Daffy Dill bed and trying to see if anyone is peeking up. Have planted more flats in the basement, some spinach, cabbage and bell peppers. Will be planting tomatoes soon, hoping the seeds I saved from last year will come up.


This is a shirt I painted as a gift for a friends husband for Christmas last year. She is such a sweety and posted this picture on her blog. I really love doing things like this and wish I could do more. I keep working on my space and trying to make it calm and organized as when things are crazy I just find it so hard to create. His puppies are just so cute and I am so glad he liked the shirt I made for him. They are such a wonderful couple, loving and supporti
ve of each other and just all around good friends.

All is well with the critters, oh and we have another one show up a beautiful little gray tabby with green eyes. Such a lover but have no idea where he came from. The dogs are a muddy mess and keep me busy sweeping up after them and washing their blankets. I try to dry them off when they come in but with Gretel that is an exercise in futility. Here are the 3 babies being abused,lol.

So best to all, keep your eye out for Spring and send it my way!

Spring?? hummm not here,lol

Jim moved my other computer up the my office so that now I have two monitors to have info up on while I work. The picture is not completely accurate as I had Jim move it around again but you get the idea. This will allow me to keep my maps and some other sites up on one and the business items on my business computer. I am trying everything to make this all work. I so hate having bills hanging over my head and hope this will aid me to be faster and there fore make more money.

We had a couple of days of warmer and you could actually see the grass and then yesterday afternoon it started to snow again and all is covered again. Just a few inches, nothing major but makes spring seem even further away. I was surprised to see Red wing blackbirds at my feeders, that's a first. I also have far too many grackles which I dislike as they chase off my other birds. It always seems as if Winter lasts so long and the Spring and Summer zip past.

Right now it seems like every thing zips,lol. Must be the age thing, I know I got a medicare card in the mail and that put a damper on things, was not ready mentally for that. Just saw that a friend from high school lost her husband and he was my age. Last month received a phone call letting me know another old friend died. A tad depressing! Not a whole lot one can do other then try to take care of ourselves and keep plugging.

I think I have decided on a color for up here, right now it is a grayish blue which was fine for a boy but kind of gloomy for me. I am leaning to a cream color that will make it lighter and brighter up here, think that will work. I will go from top to bottom as this will be the easiest to paint, will have to keep my eyes open for some mistint in the right color. Can usually pick up 5 gallons for only a couple of bucks.

Hope all are well and enjoying life. Renie posted some pictures of her daffydills on Facebook which was a pretty site. Spring is slowly working it's way up.

Be Well all,
