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!

Happy St. Paddy's Day, Barbara! I just came in from a sunny 75 degree day, and going back out after a quick lunch. We may hit 80 later today!

Love the hand painted shirt, and the picture of your abused doggies! Poor babies.

Hope it warms up there soon, and all the snow melts. Happy Spring.

It was 80 here yesterday and I took a walk on the beach. Afterwards locked my keys in my car. I actually wrote on my blog also which I haven't done for ages.

I love that picture of the babies. We are still without a dog -- our remaining kitty is such an affectionate little thing I am being cautious about upsetting her with a dog in the house. Maybe in the fall.

All the best to you. Also - love that shirt - I remember when you did that. I would love one with Beau's photo but am thinking it would be kind of sad now that he is gone.
