Easter Greetings

Wishing You Colorful Easter Sunday

Monday, March 25, 2013



I do believe that Winter has forgotten it's Spring....guess I'll need to pull out my boots to walk
to the shop later this morning.
 Looks pretty and I'm sure the children will love it
but enough is enough.

Ball Jar ® Heritage Collection

Look what I found by my front door...Ball® Heritage Collection Jars.
2013 marks the 100 year anniversary of the first series of jars designed by Ball brothers. These limited edition jars feature period-correct blue color and have embossed logos on the front and back.
I ordered mine from

OK Mother Nature...What's the Joke?

 Beautiful 26 degree spring morning?
At least the cold temperature puts a spring in your step!

Sweet Violets...

We raked leaves in the fall and again on Monday had just as many to remove from the gardens and all the places in the yard where the wind had piled them up over the winter.  This morning, while out with Lucy I noticed all the little tips of green popping up that had been hidden by the leaves.

I have lots of violets growing in the grass in my yard every spring and always look forward to seeing their little purple faces blooming. The husband calls them weeds...I call them lovelies.

Tip Toe Through the Puddles

It's a rainy day here in Carney.  Big puddles are showing up in any indentation on the yard.  Lucy ran out on tippy toes this a hurry to finish her business and get back inside.  She came running back to the porch and I had to catch her and wipe those muddy paws before letting her into the house.

It's one of those days where I would rather be snuggled up on the sofa, watching old movies and drinking a cup of tea.  But I going to pull on my shoes and run through the raindrops, up the hill to the shop. 

Hi Ho Hi Ho...

It's a cold morning here... and off and on snow flurries. Thinkin' I'll just sit here, finishing my coffee and try to decide what to do with the rest of the day.  I need to come up with an idea for dinner with what I have on hand...may just make meat sauce in the crockpot and cook some pasta.  

We had a family dinner last night to celebrate my birthday, which was earlier in the week.  It was a big birthday this of those milestones...older than dirt kinda birthdays.  I told the daughters and Lou that I didn't want a surprise party (my 50th birthday they surprised me with a party.  Went to see a movie with the tricky husband and came home to 40+ people in my house).  So the girls made dinner and it was just Lou and I, the daughters and their husbands, my Mom and the grandbabies.  Nice and cozy and exactly what I wanted.

 My best gifts...

 Have a wonderful Sunday...

The Cloud That Ate Carney

When I took the pup out this morning at 7 am the sky was blue, almost cloudless.
By 7:30 this was sliding over the house.
Looks like some scifi/horror movie...
The Cloud That Ate Carney, MD!
