Spring Has Sprung...


Here in North Florida we have had a pretty nice week. Temps hovered around the low to mid 70's and it has been breezy. I actually worked in my yard a bit, weeding the weed I mean flower beds. Why is it that freezing temps don't kill weeds???

When the temps crawled out of the 30's and 4o's the grandkids were able to get outside for a bit. They are like most little ones, they enjoy being outside. Be-Pa (Seth could not say Grandpa, now the name has stuck) got the 4-wheeler out and rode the kids around and around and around the yard. They loved it!! Neither one was ready to get off when it was time to put it away.
Here are a couple of pics of the boys I took in Feb. They are growing up so fast! Seth decided he wanted to try and take some pics with Nana's camera...we had alot of feet, butts, legs...of course this is his eye level, but he did manage to get a good picture of Jasper our Shih tzu. He is my constant companion.
I did manage to photograph a card that I made and also a puzzle that I worked on for a swap. It was so much fun. Twelve ladies participated and each in turn received a completed 12 piece puzzle. Each gal picked a theme and colors. This pic is what I made for the other gals. I haven't got a pic of mine yet, will do that later and post it. I also finally started a book of me (BOM). I handmade the cover out of chipboard and decorated it. I am slowly working on the inside. I'll make sure I post some pics. I have been going through some old slides that we inherited from my uncle. Some of these I will make into pics for this book. They are pics of me when I was a baby and we lived in Michigan.

Well, that is all for now, but I will be back soon to update you on what is going on and what I am up to.
