Hello! I am Still Here!







 HI everyone...

I have been a bad blogger...where does the time go?? ever since returning home from this fabulous beach, I cannot get myself organized!

Aren't these Sunsets gorgeous!!

We had lovely warm weather, up until the last 4-5 days...it was really windy, and on the cool side.

I do miss the warmth...

Today is just darn miserable!!

Dark and rainy....

I did manage to get my Easter dining table set today...We will be having Easter dinner on Good Friday, that way, everyone will have the rest of the weekend to do whatever
 they want. We had hoped to spend some time at the cottage, but the weather doesn't look all that great...so we will wait and see. We visited last Friday, and we left the furnace on low...as it was really cold inside! Fingers crossed we get out, and start the garden cleanup!! Got everything done here at home...and the rain is actually welcome, as we are dry...dry...dry!! There was a Robin in the yard late yesterday afternoon...I am pretty sure he did not find any juicy worms here!!



Hope you are all well...and enjoying some Springlike weather...

On a sad note...the lady that we rent the cottage from in Florida, has decided not to rent it out anymore...we were totally shocked!!! We started looking immediately...the problem with Florida is...people rent year after year...very difficult to get your foot in the door...and the prices to be ON the beach, have gone thru the roof. We finally found a place...up in Northern Florida...a beeeeutiful house, with a pool!! BUT...not on the beach...but apparently a short walk... 1 block...walk to shops and restaurants...sooooo...come next February, we will get to explore a whole new place...kind of exciting...but also kind of sad... I will surely miss these sunsets from these beach chairs...


If I don't get another post up before the weekend...

      🐰🐰🐰 Happy Easter everyone...🐰🐰🐰

                  See you soon...

                       Cheers!  :o)

🌸🌺🐞Happy Spring🐞🌺🌸







First of all...

    HAPPY SPRING EVERYONE!!!

What a busy time we have had since getting home...

Miss V was here for a sleepover...

We had so much fun!!

Did a few crafts and some baking...

She made me that beautiful Easter card with the rainbow and Bunny...love it!

She coloured a small bag for her Mom, and picked from my stash of crocheted washcloths...she picked a very pretty one for her Mom...

 



I got a scarf finished that I had started in Florida...

I am very happy with this style...with the pompoms!

Hahaha!!

We had  delicious Corned beef and cabbage dinner on St Patrick's Day.... 

My boyfriends Father was from Ireland...so we always celebrate!


On Sunday...my son DIL and new granddaughter Miss N visited!!!

She is nearly 4 months old...and still very petite...LOOK AT THAT FACE 💕

That is the hat I made her before we went away...and just got to give to her...

It barely fits her now...:o(...oh well...maybe her Mom will make her wear it!

I made an apple pie for the occasion...and let me tell you...deeeelish!!
 


On Monday...the boyfriend and I took a drive out to the cottage...

Still a bit of snow in spots...2c...light wind...not bad at all!!

LOTS of twigs everywhere....thanks to the very windy Winter...

There will def be a bonfire in our future...

No water yet...maybe next weekend...but still too nipply for a sleepover...

PLUS....I have a new fridge and stove coming...so that will be done right after the water goes on...can't wait for those two shiny new appliances!

 


Hope you are all well....

   I know a lot of people are still buried in snow...sorry about that!

      We have none here at home...and my Daffodils are sprouting! 

          I hope to get out and get a few pics of those...

              And check to see if my Peonies are up yet...


           Enjoy the rest of your week...

                See you soon....

                      Cheers!  :o)

ps....I haven't forgotten about my Florida pics...next time!!

Florida Feathers......


















Hello everyone!!!  I'm back!! Well..actually back late Sunday afternoon...

Drove like maniacs again this year, but we were very lucky, to have good weather all the way up...

It certainly seems like a distant memory already!! So darn cold here!!!

Flurries on and off all day...limited Sun!!

But...my daffodils and tulips are poking thru, so that is great news!!

I have a few posts planned for the next week or so...

Sunsets...flowers...sand...You know...the usual Florida stuff!! 

We had great weather this trip...only cooled down the last few days...

And it was the 💨💨WIND💨💨 more than the temps!! Chilly North wind!! 

All in all...a lovely vacation...💛

This Thursday Miss V is coming for a sleepover, it is March break here...

We did see her and her Mom yesterday...hugs and kisses all around ❤️

We will be crafting and baking....can't wait!!

We hope to see wee Miss N on Sunday...probably wont recognize her...but my Son did send me photos every couple of days while we were away...
She is a cutie!!


  Hope you are all well....

        Hope to get around and visit everyone...

             Enjoy your week...stay warm...

                    Cheers!  :o)
