Is that GREEN I see?

This is what Maggie is doing this morning.  She loves to sit by the front door and watch.  Watch for what?  Oh, cats, rabbits, anything that moves.

Do you notice the green grass?  Monday night we had a Winter Weather Advisory.  Snow, ice, wind, the whole nine yards!  Today the snow is gone, the sun is shining and I can hear birds chirping outside.  I'm sure they are happy little campers today, too.  If you look close at the wet spot on the porch you can still see the remnants of some ice.  That'll be gone later as well.  We need more rain so that's fine.  Just can we be done with the snow!?!

Today I have a few errands to run and then I need to finish some housework.  After that I have to work on my daughter's quilt.  I was ready to put the strips together last night.  Then all I would have left to do is sew on the borders and take it down and quilt it at the new quilt shop in town that rents time on their fabulous long arm.  Sadly, I had sewn one of the blocks together wrong (as in upside down and backwards wrong) so I had to do some Frog Sewing last night.  You know, rip-it, rip-it, rip-it!

What wonderful things are ya'll up to today?

P.S.  Maggie just came in the room to say hi!

It looks like spring is FINALLY coming to your neck of the woods Miss Jean. Give Maggie a big hug for me! I hope you'll post pictures of your quilt when you get done with it!

Oh Jean I do hope that is the end of our snowy weather!!! I so want spring to be here, I am even enjoying the dandelions this year as I want some blooms so badly!

We leave tomorrow for AZ as Bill's uncle passed away and he has been asked to officiate. WE had to run down to NM week before for another funeral there so have been a bit more busy.

We have 4 new vendors in our shops- oh they have some great things! Hope you and sis can come sometime.

bee blessed

Hello Jean,
I think it is time for you to visit The Green Pea! I miss you Jean! Your sweet sister stopped in the other day and told her to tell you hello.
I need to say it myself. Hello Jean,
how are you?

How can it be snowing there, it is in the 90's here. Today is Sunday, and it is finally cooling down. Jean I am happy to hear from sis that you are doing well. That is great, so please to see her and hear about you. Have a good week.

Thank you for your visit my friend. I'm doing much better... Lots of sitting and resting and being TOTALLY BORED but doing OK! Improving every single day. Yeah!

I had kitties and cats when I was little and still love them so much. My doggie, Mollie, sits at the back door and cries to go out. She's over 10 now so I rarely let her go out without me...she thinks she's a young thing and ends up getting injured by racing up and down the fence! :)
