Finally we are having spring like weather and I am loving it!!!
We even have a "few" blooms and lots of buds ♥
And here is a new coffee photo with new buds...
.. two of my favorite things.
The weekend was busy busy!!! The twins spent the weekend with us .
Maryana Loves to play peek-a-boo :)
She loves playing with the dogs and Mini loves racing with her.
Grandpa gave them a magazine to play and they loved tearing it to pieces....Grandpa had to clean it up :)
You might say they like Grandpa a little bit.
...and Grandpa's hat too :)
The rest of the week will be busy for me with work and Physical Therapy. I'm getting better every day but both of those things still wear me out big time. I come home and crash.

It's finally SPRING ♥♥♥♥♥
Even the weather has started behaving like Spring :)
Makes me a very happy lady for sure.
I've been getting in some quality baby time and enjoying every minute of it.
I've actually managed to spend some time outside slowly cleaning up the flowerbeds ♥ Once the are finished I'll have to see if my garden helper wants to put in some hours spreading mulch and compost. I sure hope he wants to work again this year.
I had my spinal injection on Friday and I am finally able to move around pain free!!!
Except that Physical therapy decided to up my game there now and my abs are so sore this morning that I could scream. But it's a feel good pain cause I know it is going to help in the long run if I live through it LOL!!!
It's National Crochet month so I've been working on a couple of projects. Mini has been right there laying claim to each square I finish.

Hopefully I'll continue to feel better and be around more often.

Hello my Tuesday Friends!!!
I know I have been missing in action again the past few weeks and I'm sorry. I miss coming here to visit with everyone but I think I will missing more than present for quite a while. Things are still Topsy Turvy here,
Hubby has recovered from his thyroid surgery and is back to work now but still on limited duties because of his back injury. His company has finally agreed to send him to see a surgeon for one visit and then they will review his report. 😒😒😒😒
Dad is still hanging in there...good one and then not so good the next. Nothing serious for a while now that is good.
My sister is going to Colorado this and will be gone for 2 weeks. My nephew and his wife will be staying with my parents. I wanted to go up and stay but my back is still out too and I wouldn't be able to help at all.
They do have regular day help coming in now so everything should be covered.
My sister definitely needs the break from everything and I hope she has great weather for her trip.
Once again I am reusing a drink photo. This one to celebrate the fact that Spring is only 8 Days away. Hopefully the Spring weather will show up soon too.
It was so cold last week we actually had Bluebirds at our sunflower seed feeders on the deck. Very unusual for them to do that. They tend to stay out in the wooded areas and prefer thistle seeds or meal worms. I took so pictures with my cell phone so they aren't the greatest.
The Blackbirds have returned from where ever they go for the winter too.
You can see on sitting on the deck post in the last Bluebird picture.
Of course all of the woodpeckers have been hanging out too.
I missed getting a picture of a couple of the other breeds of woodpeckers that show up.
All of the other types of birds are still hanging out and the Gold Finch have started getting a bit of their bright yellow Summer color showing :)
Here are a couple of random thoughts for this week...
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Good morning my Tuesday Friends!!!
Today is sunny and bright but that is supposed to go downhill this afternoon with snow and ice after sunset :( A typical day for this winter.
Even with the nasty weather I've been busy getting more jugs ready for the "winter sown" project. Eight planted so far and hoping to get a bunch more done today.
Here's my coffee shot for today with the newest jugs planted.
The babies are growing so fast. Littleman is pulling up on things now and standing on his own. He just can't figure out what to do next.
Princess is more interested in making new sounds and playing than standing up and walking.
She is finally getting some hair!!! ♥
and Big Sis is busy being a
For Valentine's Day I made them heart snails but I only remembered to photograph one of them. The others heart were different colors.
Right now I'm working on a hat for my daughter-in-law then I'm thinking about trying a really complicated throw or blanket for us. Something like this...
... or this...
...or maybe this...
I found a couple of facebook groups that have amazing patterns and great tutorials and helps. Which ever one I do it will be with lots of color ♥ Love those bright colors!!!
RANDOM THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
In response to the last image ...
I'm party line and saddle shoes old.
I finally get a MRI on my back this coming Friday and then an injection on Monday hopefully. Depending on what the MRI shows this time I am hoping to schedule surgery soon. I'm beyond tired of dealing with this.
So that's it for this week and don't forget to click on the blue teapot on my sidebar and visit the other folks at

Hello my Tuesday Friends!
It's another gray wintry day here in Missouri. Snow flurries going on but nothing to worry about.
We had ice on Sunday :( so I stayed home from work again. Had my share of falls for one season.
Even the garden frog was unhappy!
It's gone now...washed away by yesterdays rain.
For my drink of the day I'm sharing an older coffee photo. Reminding myself that Spring is only 35 days away and we will soon have flowers!!'
Still haven't recovered fully from my fall so I'm doing a lot of crochet and knitting these days. I am doing a year long crochet along where we get new square patterns every month and at the end we put them all together for a throw or bedspread. Mine will be a bed spread.
Here are the 3 I have done.
I have also made myself a shawlet to help keep my shoulders warm at work on those windy days.
I made the buttons out of avocado seeds :)
I'm also knitting a hat and cowl to match just so I can improve my knitting skills.
The hat is finished and the cowl will probably get done later this week as I have a couple of Valentines things to get done.
