I am so thrilled to know that we're now getting into one of my FAVORITE season's, Spring. I gladly say GOOD-BYE to WINTER!!!! Even though I know that we are truly not out of the woods yet as Winter around here can easily last into April still. The nice part about that though is that the frigid cold does not last if it does settle in, and any SNOW we'd get...would disappear as fast as it came. Wooohoo~bring on the rain and a season of new beginnings and new growth!
I've a progress photo (or two) to share of my WIP...it's really beginning to look like "something" now and I am really pleased at how its looking. I even ironed it this time, for you. Tee Hee Hopefully that does a little bit of justice to the progress photo's. This is where I am at as of Thursday evening...
I'm not even to the halfway point of this pattern, so I've still loads of stitching time to look forward to on this piece. I really am loving every minute of working on it though and seeing the little bits and pieces of it coming together.
I finally managed to box up the Triplet's birthday gifts, and get that all off to the PO this past Tuesday. Mommy of Triplets did pack into their suit cases what she could, but just couldn't take it all home with them...on the plane. Those little sweethearts made out like little bandits for their first birthday! Lots of cloths (mommy counted, in all, 33 outfits) and lots of Toys and Books and socks etc. I sent three boxes, and Mommy of Triplets called on Thursday to let me know that they had arrived. Yeah!!!! The girls can now enjoy those birthday gifts.Our little Sassafras kitty girl, Sophie, just does not miss a beat around here! I purposely didn't set the boxes on the floor as I got them ready to go as I didn't want the cat's to climb all over them...so, thinking they'd be safer up on the counter top proved to be hysterical after all. Here are a couple photos of our Sassafras......
Grandpa of Triplets and I headed to the Lake last Saturday...even stopped and bought a couple of fresh loafs of wheat bread to feed the Ducks, Geese and Pigeons that might just be hanging around. WOW...we didn't even pull up, but from a distance, could tell there was going to be a lot of activity in the water! Want to see what I'm talking about....okay, look further...
Caught this cute little girl out flying her kite, it was sure windy enough for kite flying that day
And kids playing on the equipment...people walking their dogs..other's playing near the water
Even seen this Barge wayyyyy out there
After seeing all that we could see, and feeding the "birdies", we headed over to my sisters where we where invited for an early St. Patrick's Day dinner. Ohhh gosh, it was soooooooo good! The corned beef was so tender, it about melted in your mouth. There was cooked cabbage, carrots and little red potatoes. And, a carrot cake to finish it all off. It was all just scrumptious.
And that's about all that's been going on around here as of late. The weather has been warming up, we actually reached a high of 75* on Tuesday. Awesome! It's cooled off since then but we will be on the upward temperature climb again.
Have a super weekend, everyone. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit, and to leave your much appreciated comments.Sharon
