All week long I have been thrilled to see the lovely spring flowers popping up on many of
by southern friends post. And, truthfully, a little envious too! There have been crocus, tulips,
daffodils, cherry and apple trees in blossoms, and really too many for me to remember. I
just know it will be June before they will be breaking ground here!
But look what I woke up to this morning-my very own crochetas have bloomed.
This is probably a new flower to many of you. I know I have just discovered it.
They can bloom anytime of the year, you just have to know how to ‘work’ them.
It has the leaf of a geranium, but blooms with varying colors and shapes. If you’d
like to know where you can ‘find’ one, let me know and I will set you up with one.
I didn’t quite make it to ‘Michaels’ yesterday. It was one of those shopping days where you
have a dozen different places you have to go. However, my MIL and I spent a good deal of
our time in ‘Value Village’. She is getting an apt. down south soon, so she is excited about
finding pretty dishes and such to set up a second household. We did find the perfect set for her.
And then I wanted to find some new tops for spring. I knew exactly what I wanted and I found three.
The only problem was they were all smalls instead of mediums. Never mind that, I bought them
anyway. My daughter will love them and I’ll enjoy seeing them on her, at least, if I can’t wear
The sunset last evening was gorgeous again. I saw on the calender that we change to daylight
savings time this weekend. Doesn’t this sound like this is happening a little earlier than usual?
This means that my sunsets will now be an hour later. I think I can live with that!
As I sat basking in the beauty of this sunset, I discovered that my son, Clayton and his
family have been without power since the wee hours of the morning last Saturday.
My oldest son, Jefferson, is part of the crew working to restore their power as we speak.
However, it could be this Saturday before they get to Traverse City where Clayton lives
as there were so many other counties without power also.
But, in light of the real tragedies of the recent tornadoes, I know Clayton isn’t complaining.
He’s just happy to still have a place to go home to.
I also have some very big news to give you soon. And no, NannaDiana, it’s not that I’m
pregnant! Would you believe my own daughter actually called me and ask me if I was after
she read my salt and pepper post? I’m thinking I really must be more careful how I word
these post in the future!
That’s all the excitement here in my world today. What’s happening with you?
