Clouds Moving In

My bunnies
 This is my magnolia tree in bloom this year. It is starting to lose the petals since the wind has been blowing strong the last couple of days. The clouds have been moving in all day and then the sun shines. You think maybe it is going to rain, but it is any body's guess when that is going to happen.
We have spent more time at home this weekend for a change. After running errands yesterday morning, we came home and hubby slept all afternoon. Our son didn't believe that we were actually home. It is an exception to the rule. 
We were gone for a while this morning, but we have been home all afternoon until we went to Walmart to pick up a few groceries. I got us a small pizza and some salad mix that was supper. It sounded good for a change. 
Finding things just for two people is a challenge. We will know more of what we can do after the doctor appointment this coming Thursday. 
Don't you like my bunnies. My blue flower in the middle doesn't show up that good in the picture, but they are blue, purple and lavender. I thought of my friend Shell at Raspberry Rabbits when I made this one. Now you know what I did while I set at the hospital 24/7. I take small projects because they are easier to work with then my quilts. The next couple of tea towels the patterns are a little different then the normal. I am always looking for something different and I never know where I will find them. They will be listed in my etsy shop some of them are already.
I have everything set up on my new computer except I am still having problems with my e-mail. I can retrieve it a different way so that will go on the back burner for a day or two. I need to get things done for my current month. 
Matt has decided he is just going to show his horse this summer. They missed the soccer sign up and t-ball was going to interfere with his showing his horse. He made the choice.  My youngest grandson doesn't have a horse, but he would if he could. He always wants to ride horses when he goes out to our sons. 
We will just go where ever this summer that we can do. We take every day that we are given and pray for the best. Some days are good and some days aren't. You just roll with whatever you are handed. 
Pray for our boys in Afghanistan right now. They need us in the worse way. I have family over there and know some more getting read to go.
You all have an enjoyable week. Ours is suppose to be storming for the first three days. Take care

Hi Shirley- Just popping in to say thank you! Did you know that your email address is not working? I tried to email you to thank you for commenting and the address (it's a Yahoo address) doesn't work. I didn't know if you knew that or not. Hugs- Diana

Shirley, your magnolia tree is so beautiful! Love your embroidery, the bunnies are so sweet.

We've had warm weather here but no rain so far. My plum tree is in full bloom and my garden is waking up early this year. I think it's going to be a loooong spring/ summer :-)

Take care my friend,

Hi honey
It was cloudy here all day too. I needed to mow bad but two of the tractors out here are broken. lol
We are suppose to have 6 inches tomorrow and I hope that is not going to happen.
I do like your bunnies. How you get so much done is beyond me.
Can totally relate to how hard it is to cook for two because I am trying to cook for one. lol
Hope you have a wonderful week.
Love ya

Your tree is so lovely. I am looking at your pictures and envious - we are knee deep in snow here still.
Cooking for two isn't always the easiest thing but your dinner sounds delicious - I love pizza!
take care and wishing you and your family all the best, both at home and far away...

Your magnolia tree in bloom is just AWESOME, Shirley! Thank you for sharing it. We don't see any trees in bloom yet but I did take LOTS of photos of my hyacinths that are up.

I hear you on struggling to cook interesting meals for just two. Its HARD!!
