Spring's popping..........

Snow crocus, the second earliest flowers in our yard.  As soon as the snow went off in this flower bed they were here.  Brave little flowers.

In between.................

This time of the year I run out of things to photograph.  I'm trying out my new phone so everything's game.  That's Rascal's favorite toy laying there - you're likely to find it anyplace.  The camera takes pretty good pictures, don't you think?

Unhealthy.................


While I waited in the doctor's office with Leonard the other day I couldn't stop laughing at this almost life sized, kind of three dimensional human replica.  It was hanging behind the door and everytime the door opened it got smashed a little more.

Things that were supposed to be fastened together weren't and it was very apparent to me that this "person" had a lot of bad problems.  Poor thing.

The whole idea of such a wreck of a "person" in a doctor's office was just hysterically funny to me.

Dreaming of spring...........................

These nicer days have me wandering around yard thinking what I will do this year.  Things are starting to come up and I have so many ideas.  The question is will I be able to do it now, walking with a cane - everything takes way longer.  I guess my answer is just to do a little each day and keep at it!    Blessings to you,

Truly it eases the heart..........

Always the first to bloom, the little Viola is up before anybody else.  They're such brave little flowers, sometimes I think they're blooming under the snow.  No wonder their old name is Hearts Ease.  What a joy it is to see them in the spring and know that we've survived another frigid winter. We've been blessed with some beautiful, sunny, sweatshirt weather in the last couple days but everyone knows that the storms will be back.  It makes the beautiful days even more precious.

Hello, little cottage..................



 If you look in the right hand corner of the picture on the little table there's a framed picture.  It's the same picture as the last one in this post.
This is when Leonard was just beginning to build the cottage.  Look how thin Rascal was he was just a year old. 
Here I am.  I can hardly wait to start decorating. 

And this is the picture I have framed on the table.  He had just said "That's the last screw, I'm done for the day!"  He's worn out from working on it all day - building my little cottage.

Now I can tell you..............

I gave Cathy her birthday gift last weekend.  It's a miniature matchbox chest that I made for her.
For a long time I've wanted to make one of these and her birthday seemed the perfect time.
It's made out of the tiny little matchboxes.  The little drawers really open, too.  I just love the teeny tiny little legs.
