Spring is Getting Closer


I finished the tea towel while I was at the hospital this past week. I had made one earlier and had already sold it so I decided to do another one. The roses and pansies made me think of spring. I found it when I was surfing for clip art. It was on Vintage Holiday Crafts.
Today really seem like Spring with the temperature being 66 degrees this afternoon. It was so pretty that I wanted to play hooky. This month has been a little busy with our daughter and son-in-law's garage burning. He was rushed to the hospital and had a stint put in his heart, but the main thing is he didn't have a heart attack and there was no damage to his heart. He is doing physical therapy three times a week. They have a three year old son. It was hard on him because he saw the fire and them taking his daddy away in the ambulance.
I had my hubby in the hospital last week because of chest pains. It wasn't his heart, but they couldn't tell us what was going on. We just have a bunch of doctor visits. The good news is that he had his iron infusion a year ago and he doesn't have to have one at the present time. That is terrific we will check again in four months.
We are suppose to have rain later tonight which I know we need, but I really don't want it. I don't like their forecast for the weekend because it is for snow. I have seen snow as late as April, but who knows. We live in the Show Me State, just stick around because it is guaranteed to change.

good Morning Shirley, Glad to hear your son in law and your husband are ok. We are looking forward to spring, I can hear the birds singing this morning for the first time this year, yes I do have a hard time parting with the dishes when I purchase them but as my hubby says I can't keep them all.
Hugs,
Judy
