T Stands for Tuesday

Hello My Tuesday Friends!!! 
Time is flying again this week and the weather is still confused. 
One day it's Spring and then Winter is back in force 😩
At least the Spring Flowers haven't given up completely. They just droop more than normal.
 
My computer is acting up again today so I am trying to do this on my phone and it's  hard for me.
Over the weekend we stopped at Dunkin Donuts for a treat. 
It's been years since we stopped there.

T Stands for Tuesday

It's Tuesday again and time to say hello to my friends at...
T Stands For Tuesday!!!
It's been a supper crazy busy week over here and I missed last week altogether. 
We had unexpected company for Easter and he got sick and ended up in the hospital. So I've been busy taking care of him and trying to get all of his medical records and things shipped here from New Mexico. He will be staying with us indefinitely. 
Life is full of surprises.  

Then there is the crazy business of getting ready for these twins to show up. 
They had a Diaper Shower on Saturday that was great and they got tones of diapers that I'm sure they will go through much faster than they think. 
They had photos taken on Sunday....



I'm in love with all of the photos!!!! 
She has 8 more weeks to go but the Doctor says she will deliver much earlier. So we are expecting tiny little babies in our life. 
Mom is now on bedrest and hopefully that will help the little ones grow faster and stay inside longer. They have to wait because I don't have the blankets done. I thought I had at least 6 more weeks 😕
We had snow over the weekend again...thankfully it didn't last overnight!!!


And here's my drink for the day.

It's suppose to warm up this week so flowers should really start blooming ♥♥♥ I'll be in my happy place 😍

So that's all for now.... hoping that things will be calmer this week and I can be here next week too :)

T Stands for Tuesday

HELLO MY TUESDAY FRIENDS!
I'm running late again this week :-( 
Weather has me down again... rainy, grey days...one right after the other. 
I'm missing the sunshine big times. 
Plus my allergies turned into another sinus infection which gone into my ears and my eyes. Didn't know a sinus infection could go into your eyes. 
So now I'm on steroids and antibiotics  AGAIN! Plus they have changed out my allergy medicines and added two eye drops. 
I'm thinking the desert is sounding more and more like a good place to live.... but I could never give up my gardens. 
I'm drinking lots of coffee today ..trying to get motivated to do anything. :) Hubby made the coffee this morning so it was extra, extra, extra strong. Had to add more cream than normal :0) 
Here's the few flowers that I do have blooming...



I have several more mini greenhouse planted with flowers and more flowers but no photos ... to rainy. 
Today I hope to start the more tender ones like tomatoes and tender Herbs.

T Stands for Tuesday

Hello again my Tuesday Friends! 
Still limping along with this old and failing computer so it will be lucky if this gets posted and will take all day for sure. I can only stay on for a short while and then I have to shut it down and let it set for a long while :(

Here's my coffee cup I use at work. Someone there gave it too me as a joke. I don't use it much anymore as I have given up drinking coffee after my breakfast. Trying to be a bit more healthy but who knows how  long that will last.
It's chilly  here this morning. I haven't turned the heat up in the house yet so the kitties are napping together. 

 It's really rare that they are all three together like this. :) The white and yellow one is usually off by himself or only with the one he's laying next to. They are true brothers and the one in the back is a rescue kitty that came later...he's the Bengal Cat that I talk about sometimes.
Today I think I will work on planting more flower seeds in the water jugs. I ordered  12 different kinds of seeds and they are here now.   

 I've been buying seeds from this shop on Ebay for years and their seeds are great and it's so much cheaper than most garden centers and you get a lot more seeds in each bag.

So that's it for me today. Hopefully I'll be able to get this linked to

T Stands for Tuesday

Hello again my Tuesday Friends!
Sorry I missed last week ! I'm having major issues with my computer and may have to break down and get a new one. Hubby worked on this one for hours but is not sure how long it will last. It's old but I DO NOT want to deal with learning Windows 10 but just may have too 😢
Winter has decided to make a big statement this week. Yesterday we were supposed to get light snow with only a slight accumulation on grassy areas. Well this is what we got!






It was a very heavy wet snow and is already melting and should be gone in a day or two. I hope. I'm really ready for sunny warm days with flowers!  Did you notice all of the snow on Mini's front legs? Her fur is long there and the snow just built up on it. Took forever to get all of it off when we came in. 😢
So I spent the day inside crocheting while Dear Hubby worked on my computer again. 
This is what I'm working on . I won a great pattern book a couple of months ago and have just starting working on one of the patterns. It's has a Celtic look to it and it is new stitches that are bit intricate and new to me. Luckily she provides links for YouTube videos so you can get the visual aids to figure it out. I think I'm going to love it when it's finished. I'm using a hand dyed wool yarn that is so soft and the colors are so earthy!!!
Here's the pattern book I won and it is GREAT!


I have more little "mini green houses" planted and will do more of them today :) 
I've been saving the flavored water bottles that Hubby drinks all of the time and will be doing a bunch of smaller individual ones. I haven't tried using them yet but I've read in the "Winter Sowing" group that they work great so we'll see 😄 
I can barely wait until it is actually time to plant everything in the gardens . 

I did get one of the flower beds cleaned up before the snow came back.
 The one directly in front of the house is about 3 quarters of the way done. 
The daffodils and tulips are already starting to poke their leaves up out of the ground. 
Soon! It will be here soon !
Here's my coffee and breakfast for today. Trying to get some energy built up to start on the purging again. Having that flu really knocked my energy levels off completely. And when I do get some it drains quickly still. Maybe I'm just getting old.

And for extra fun here's a painting I bought a long time ago when the Hubby started complaining about my art and craft supplies taking over his half of the Hobby Room. 
He didn't appreciate the humor as much as me :) 
Now it's time to link to 
Link should go live shortly after 4 pm.
