Is It Really Here?

Today turned out to be a beautiful sunshiny Spring day. It got up close to 65 degrees.

After breakfast, we decided that it would be a good day to get some outside jobs done. Laurie raked all of the flower beds out. We always leave a protective layer of leaves on them in the fall.

Chris decided that our SUV needed a cleaning, inside and out. The long winter really did a number on it.

We hope that you were all able to enjoy your day as much as we did.

Saturday afternoon we went to the cemetery to clean up around Dad's headstone and to get the Winter wreath and wreath holder. On the way home, we drove by this farm and the horses were out near the road. We pulled over to see what kind of pictures we could get.

There were 5 work horses out in the fields.

These 2 were very cooperative and posed for us.

I think they thought we were going to feed them.

Is Spring Here?

Sorry we have neglected our blog lately.
Got the bloggin' blues.

Can't wait for the Spring flowers to start blooming.

A Little Face Lift!

Ever since we bought our house the vertical bricks in our fireplace have driven us crazy. They look like they were put in the wrong way. At Christmastime we have a Merry Christmas sign that fits in there perfectly, but the rest of the year it annoys us. Yesterday, we did a little project.

Chris cut out a thin piece of wood that fits in this area. I painted it white to match the mantle, and cut out letters and flowers with my cricut.

We both like the way it turned out. Now we are going to have to figure out what is going on the mantle for Spring. Laurie has one more stitchery to finish for the window, and we should be ready for Spring.

What do you think?

Hard To Believe!

18 years ago today Chris and I went on our first date. It was a double date with Chris's friend Randy and his girlfriend Leann. We had a lot of the same friends, so we all hung out together. Chris and I got to be good friends. We went bowling, to dinner and to the movies. We saw sleeping with the enemy. It is hard to believe that we have been together for 18 years. I love you more today than I did back then.

I love you Chris!!!

Gloomy Day!

It is very gloomy today, but it is warm enough that we have the upstairs windows open to get some fresh air in the house.

It has been raining on and off all day today.

We don't have much snow left at all, but our backyard looks like a hay field.

We do have some signs of spring in some spots in the yard.

Daffodils are just staring to pop out.

We hope that we aren't getting teased by mother nature again.

Bloomin' Tuesday!

Flowering Trees

All of these pictures were taken last spring at a local cemetery. I decided to drive around to see what kind of pictures I could get.

This Magnolia was so fragrant.
The color of the flowers was so pretty.

The next pictures are of Dogwoods.

I was shocked when I saw the color of this one. It was so bright.

Isn't it pretty?

Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!
