It's beginning to look like Spring!

Today I'm going to a Lawn and Garden Show in Ubly~

Traditionally I buy my early bedding plants~ we do have some cold weather expected this week. As long as I put the flats up close to the house I've had good luck with pansies.

The courtyard has been raked and is looking a little greener~I love my courtyard. We have a deck to enjoy~this photo was taken last Spring~during expansion of the deck.

I'll have to take more photos when things green up a bit!

I had a very successful walk with the dog yesterday. I need to shed a few lbs. that I gained over the does dog~great to have a "partner" to walk with!

Have a great day!

Artisan Jewelers Guild

I have been a very busy Guild Master for the past few days!

I have put together a web site for Art fire AJG.

Put a blog post on Art Fire AJG Blogspot announcing the March challenge! Picking a favorite this Challenge is going to be very difficult!

And I published TWO issues of Open Zine.

Trying also to decide on a forum that is easy to navigate, and post to...

Did I mention that I ♥ my Guild? AJG Members ROCK!

Grandangels ROCK!

This is my now three year old grandangel Micah Niccole. I talked to her last week about her upcoming third birthday~she was excited to be turning a year older! Little did I know that she was excited to be even older than she really IS!
I asked so how old will you be on Thursday? FIVE!!! she exclaimed~OH! I think it's three~ I said calmly~ but she insisted no she's going to be FIVE! Couldn't change her mind..

There is just something about women and age..after all I was 21 for 4 years~until my youngest sister turned 21..and my son then asked Papa.."Are Mommy and Aunt Giggles twins?" *wink
