A Happy Day

Yesterday was a great day I felt better then I have for a while. We went to the marina there is a place to walk around and see all of the boats and water and the sky was beautiful. We met a nice lady that had a rescured Greyhound named Sugar she lives on a boat and goes to Alaska every year. There are a couple of restaurants down there also and the Hotel Bellweather.
I wish I could figure out how to put the pictures in the order that I want them(LOL).
~~~ HUGS~~~
It was a great day.

Sky Pictures

I took these on the way home from the flower shop yesterday. There was some blue sky and some coluds and it wasn't cold and the wind wasn't blowing.
I think Spring is almost here.

Today was a nice day. I went over to my favorite part of town and paid a visit to the little flower shop. It is so cool they have lots of plants and neat stuff for the garden.
The sun was out a little and it was not cold.
I feel much better today.

This blue stuff is really pretty They also have other colors,

I really like the things that are hanging on the fence.

Then there are the daffodils.

Wall Hanging

This is my favorite Wall Hanging. I am sitting here watching the rain coming down. My scanner isn't working it is to wet to take pictures.I guess I am a little down today.I am thinking of things to be thankful for.My husbands eyes are doing great.My sister is doing ok her blood work is good her nuropathy is the same ( not good).My son is happy he found his father. All of my other wonderful kids are doing well, and I love reading all of your blogs. I think we need some sunshine. I am not very good at putting what I am thinking down on paper. My 92 year old mother is doing great dancing on YouTube.
Hugs to all of you

Watermelon Break

I lived in North Carolina for a little while a long time ago the baby in this picture is now 56 years old. The watermelon was fresh from the garden. We were working in the tobbaco fields picking and tieing it on sticks to put in the curing barn to dry.
I love this picture it is so old timey.

I was a nice day not to windy or cold .The San Juan cruise boat was there and a catamaran. The water was smooth and blue. It was a good day. I need to get out of the house more often.

This is a very funny story about cloth diapers . When my youngest son and his wife were going to have there first baby they hadn't decide if they were going to use cloth diapers or disposable ones. I decided to make them some nice flannel ones like I used. I hunted all over for diaper flannel and finely found some in Everett. I bought enough for about ten of them I figured if they wanted more I could make more. I cut and hemmed them folded them all like I used to and took them to there house I was really proud of me. Well they didn't know what they were they said are they blankets. The pictures show what are now cloth diapers. I guess that go to show how old I am. I was a little embarrassed.

Looking for Spring

Today I went looking for signs of Spring. I took a walk around our little lake and I was sad because I didn't find very much. The Heather is blooming and there were some little red buds and little white flowers that were very pretty.I guess that is a start. Maybe if I walk more I will see more. That is what I am going to do.
