Birthdays, Craziness And More Snow?
Uh huh. So they say. Up to 6 inches of the white fluffy mess. Sheesh. Winter is doing more than gasping his last...he is being quite the bully and treating Spring miserably. Each time that sweet season tries to bring us a little respite from the ice, old man Winter rears his hard head and slams it right into little Spring. Poor bruised and battered girl, she hangs back and retreats but each time she does so, she gains strength. Soon she will be strong enough to tackle that mean old coot. Knock him right back where he belongs. We do have a few St. Patrick's Day decorations out now and really enjoy all the green...Bill's family is Irish by heritage so I guess that makes me *just a wee bit* Irish too! I will get photos up soon but wanted to do ahead mention my sweet mail! I have been quite remiss in posting about both of these...I have the most glorious, fantastic and *Grace is holding it hostage in her room but I will get it back I swear* hand mirror from Lisa Oceandreamer & the most wonderful, ever so useful and *will I ever get it back from Grace I do not think so* sewing book from Gretchen. Both were giveaway gifts and are loved and so appreciated. I DO want yo both to know how wonderfull I think you both are. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And Cassie. You are a sweetheart. I am now the proud owner of the sweetest vintage English tin. It has a precious doggie on the lid and I love it. Cassie also included 2 of her adorable tags. It was such a sweet thing for her to do and I really appreciate it. The photos will follow soon... I truly do apologize for not visiting everyone as I should be and LOVE to do. This is Grace's birthday AND my nephew Boo's birthday! It has also been a week of sheer crazy business! Please accept my apologies and know I will be back with you all sometime tomorrow! Grace is 10 today and Boo is 5. I have no idea where the years go. Oh yeah...they go straight onto me! I am 51 and running kids to school, lessons and doctor appointments. I am slow and I limp a bit but I am steady so I do hope to, at least, place a solid 4th in this race! I love helping my brother and sis in law out with Boo while they are at work. I am also letting their new doggie, Casey, out in the afternoon and that is a huge treat! She really is so dog gone sweet! Of course, Kipper sniffs me and gets a bit miffed...He is sniffed miffed. Kip has yet to meet the new family member so I am sure he wonders just why I come home smelling like another dog! Such behavior for his Mama! I will have lots of BD jolliness and photos and other fun to report tomorrow. Thank you for bearing with me. I think you all know how I feel about'cha...
