This week past has been filled with ups and lots of downs. I went to Ottawa to visit with my 2 grown children, my son's birthday was on Sunday, I am the mother of a bouncing 37 year old baby boy, I love him with all my heart.
During the week I went to New York for a shopping trip with my daughter,we had a lot of fun together I always enjoy her company ,I so seldom get her all to myself ,that when I do its a special day for us.
Back in Ottawa the 3 of us went to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D >>>WOW<<< If you get the chance to see this movie go see it,you wont believe your eyes ... so much color and vividness..... I would not take a child tho.... what an incredible movie !! Johnny Depp is fantastic!!!
We eat international every single night !!! >>> I love that !!! On Birthday Boy's special day we went to the Casino for supper, it was sooo good, I even had a glass of wine and played the one armed badits but didn't win, that's ok it was fun anyway !
Sadly tho while I was away my wonderful sister in law's> sister passed away from breast cancer at the age of 55,I love my sister in law , she is very dear to my heart,I wish I could have been there for her during this time of sadness,she lost her older sister to ovarian cancer several years ago, now she only has her mother who is elderly and not well herself. I have so much pain in my heart for her I cannot put it into words.
Another death in my family on my mother's side of the family, an older cousin passed away in his brother's arms,he also had cancer,so much sadness in that family.He will be missed.
It was a good week for me in one way I love being with my kids , but losing family while I was gone was so sadly tragic for me,and you know what struck me hard this week, I wanted to call my mother and tell her everything that was happening,I had an overwhelming feeling of needing to talk to her,if you out there still have your mother, call her, hug her, tell her you love her ...... she will only be here with you a short time.
Happy First Day of Spring !!!!!!!!!!! Tomorrow I am leaving early for Ottawa, my son came home just to pick me up and take me there, is that sweet or what !! I will be there a week...............YIPEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! I so SO so need a little get away to clear my mind, but I will be bringing my laptop "Betty" along with me so I will check in from time to time. Going south ~~~~~ no snow there what so ever !!! Because today is the First Day of Spring !! I can hear all the sigh's from way up here ladies !!!
This is what I do in my spare time,its peaceful work and not so hard on my hands as quilting. The wool is just flying into those cute little squares. I am the type of person that needs to do something creative all the time.I think I must have tried every craft imaginable. When I go visiting blogs that have some sort of craft photo I am often reminded of what I use to make,and sell at craft sales. When I go to Ottawa next week I will look into some fun wool shops there ,maybe I can find more colors that will coordinate. What craft is keeping your fingers busy ?
Its that time again !!! Don't forget on Sunday night to move your clocks ahead one hour !! Another sign that spring is around the corner ....... when the days get longer !(Yipeee!) We still have piles and piles of snow BUT it >>IS melting, that in itself is very exciting !!! *********Dont forget to spring ahead or else you will fall behind.... ********* LOL!! Oh I crack me up sometimes!!
My lovely friend Vicky of My Favorite Things send me a huge envelope full of post cards !! She lives in Knightdale,which is just outside of Raleigh ! It was such a sweet gesture >> I am tickled pink !! Vicky thank you so much !!
Can't wait to see my first robin of the year, always a thrill for me !!!! And see our little friend Chippy come closer to the house looking for a treat to snack on !! And of course the first pussy willows of the year........ all these I wont see for another month at the very least......I am patient........ but come on SPRING ...... I miss you!!!
I thought if I showed photos of some things that mean SPRING to me maybe Mother Nature would get the hint............ ( she is not paying me any attention) Were still knee deep in the white stuff, altho I must say the temperature is a little warmer. What reminds you of spring ???
My sweet hubby had the flu all weekend, he was not feeling well at all.Poor man it was a long few days for him, he hates being sick. He is feeling a little better now. I hope I don't get what ever he had,>>>>> I washed my hands a million times ! I stayed nearby in case he needed something , other wise I crocheted all weekend, it was relaxing. A bright sunny day out there today makes me hopeful for spring !!!!!!!
