IT'S COMING!!!!!

I can feel it in the air! but I can also see it too!!! Look at this FAT ROBIN! It was perched, singing a here comes spring song!!! This bird was the size of a PIGEON!!! WOW...SOOO READY FOR SPRING TO BE HERE.......YESTERDAY!!!



Made this little quiltie for a sweet friend of mine...but then found out I had mixed up the date...(geez..and we even lived in Germany...so i SHOULD HAVE KNOWN the dates are posted differently) So we will say this ia a LOVE suprize...hee hee...



got these sweet blossoms from a vintage sale...






BIG news this month...is that Maddy won SECOND PLACE for her science experiment!!!
Here she is by her display...and may I mention that 5 other people did pretty much the same experiment...and she WON!

Here she is receiving her ribbon from her principal...and her teacher.


Look at the pride!


I said spring is here...here are the remnants of our snowman that the kids built just last month...I had purchased a colorful scarf from the thrift store to keep the snowman's neck warm...and hmmmmm....couple of days ago we noticed that it was GONE!




Yesterday David called from the yard...to say he had FOUND the scarf!!! We went out to see...and...YES..THERE IT WAS!



UP ON THE NEIGHBORS ROOF!!!! A squirrel had hauled it up there for his nest!!! Oh how I wish i could have watched him/her drag that up there!!! Now is appears to be hung up on a nail or something...as it hasn't moved...

Just a moment of reminiscing...something we won't see again...


This was taken in 1979...that's my mom...and just LOOK AT THAT PRICE OF GAS..WOW...

how much is it by you!??? Here it's hovering at 3.39...

big HUGZ TIL NEXT TIME! THANKS FOR STOPPING BY....I'd love a comment!

Well done to Maddy, good girl.

Poor little snowman...but the circle of life goes on and no doubt the squirrel will find a way to use that scarf...

Finally I have never seen such a FAT robin!
