Hey ~ remember me
yes I am the one that has been lurking in the shadows
reading your posts
liking your IG and Facebook posts
and not doing much else
looks like I derailed right around Valentines day
so in all actuality it has only been 3 weeks
give or take
and I guess derailed is the wrong word
I just disappeared for a bit
so let's talk winter for a minute and how I am so over it
and snow and cold
I realize that Spring is just around the corner
on the calendar
I fear we may not see our lawn until June
but I am just being overly dramatic now
mornings like this however make me thankful for 4 seasons
the fog over the river and sun doing what it does best
I have 3 Christmas cactus and all of them had blooms in the past
couple of months. One I have had for 5 years and had never bloomed
love a splash of colour on a cold February day
and then this happened
we have been having some issues since November
and chose to baby it ~ well someone dropped the baby!
we went laptop shopping a couple of weeks ago
honestly I am the type of person that will go to one store
see one I like ~ all the specs are there I want
yeah ~ not so much with hubby
so I am typing away on the same one tonight
we will get another ~ soon....
I am crazy for anything cable knit right now
so this pitcher and candle holder needed to come home with me
when I saw them on clearance in the grocery store
they match perfect with my little cable knit snowman I got
before Christmas when we were in Maine shopping
now I know that I have talked about my internet group here before
so every year we do a gift exchange ~ we used to do it for Christmas
like a secret santa but the last couple of years we have waited until after the holidays
and sent it out in the new year.
I received my gift last weekend from Erin who also has a blog!
she made both the wrapped leather bracelet and the button monogram
she is one talented lady!
this is a tradition I love so much ~ I think I like buying for my recipient
picking out things I think she will like while staying true to sending out
things that are locally made. Ironic since my gift from Erin looks a lot like
what I sent her!
last Sunday was a bridal shower for my God daughter Jillian
she got so many nice things ~ it was such a great afternoon
you may recall that we got together and made her invitations back in January
and I don't think I showed you one of the finished products
this is Mitchell ~ the bride to be's nephew
he is a-dor-a-ble
was the talk of the afternoon and learned how to wave
yes ~ I taught him how to wave ~ proud moment here.
I will be back ~ sooner than later
thanks for reading
