Crafts With Nana...♥️♥️♥️








Miss V arrived early this am...around 7:45am...
We were ready for her!!
After Papa and I were both showered and dressed...
We got busy!!!
Papa had to go out for a while...
So Miss V and I took this opportunity...
To work on a few Valentines cards ♥️
She made one for each of her special people in her life...
Especially her little friend Sammy...Her Moms friends son...
He is a wee bit younger than her...but she loves whenever they get together.. 

After we were done...
I packed up her "Craft Basket"...
Found a great use for this basket I bought at a thrift shop last year.... 
Everything neat and tidy...

The crafting was done by 11:30 am...
Time for lunch...

The day got better and better...
Our temps climbed all the way to 15C...a new record for this day in February...


Flowers for today...are this incredibly beautiful White Geranium...
It grew in my tree basket...and was simply exquisite...
enjoy!
   



Stay tuned for part 2 of our day with Miss V...
To be continued...........

Miss V and her Mom stayed for dinner...
We had baked Haddock...brussell sprouts,bok choy,fries and a Greek Salad...  
Everyone cleaned up their plates!

Hope you all had a great day...

                     Cheers!   :o)

  6. You are a wonderful Nana!
    I love your craft basket and I am am feeling like a Grammy kind of day is due here.
    I have heart shaped "Christmas" cookies in my basement freezer just waiting to be frosted and decorated.
    (I turned my Christmas cookie dough into hearts.)
    It was a beautiful day and I took a ride down past the lake on my way home tonight.

  15. Love the valentine cards and how little Miss V. focuses so intently. Brought back great memories of teaching and how crafts with my class was one of my favourite times! Your dinner sounded delish, we had beef stew and roasted beets. Comfort food although it didn't really feel like winter at all yesterday!

    Thanks for sharing, Linda...
