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.

Spring is getting closer

The beautiful sunset with each day getting longer. We have had such crazy weather lately. It must be because we live in the Show Me State. If you don't like our weather stick around it is guranteed to change.

Valentine supper is over and the house is peaceful and quiet. We will have pie later. We were lucky and didn't get the ice or snow. I had some ice on my windshield when I got off work. It was raining when I was coming home. I saw three wrecks which I didn't know if it was because of the weather or because of someone's stupidity. They don't like yielded when they are trying to come on to the highway. It makes it rather hard when you have no place to go. The sun was shining today so we went for a drive to get hubby out of the house. I needed to get my car serviced so we took the long way around. We saw an awfully lot of Canadian Geese looking for someplace to land and find feed. For some reason there were a lot more then we normally saw. I don't know if there was a reason for it or not. He got to see his train cars. The coal trains were empty and full depending on which way they were going.

The month is officially half gone and it won't take long for it to be starting another. I just want Spring I am tired of dressing in layers. I hope everyone had a wonderful day for Valentines.

Valentine Day Coming

I found this when I was surfing and it reminded me of some of the Valentines we had when I was growing up. We always made our Valentine Boxes in school out of shoe boxes and decorated them with red and white hearts. Maybe we would use a white heart shape Dolley and put a solid red heart in the middle. We always brought a Valentine for everybody and it was so much fun deciding who got what Valentine.
Today the weather was absolutely beautiful and it is still 69 degrees outside. It was so nice to see the sunshine. We went for a long drive just to get outside. We did walking in the fresh air.
We saw a couple of grass fires along the highway. I don't know if they were intentional or accidental.The wind wasn't as strong as yesterday, but was blowing some. Spring is around the corner and with the time flying fast it will be here before you know it. Enjoy the beautiful weather if you got it and to all of you with snow and ice I hope it goes away soon. To those of you that was without electricity I know exactly how you feel.We went through the ice storm last year.

Day to Day

You can tell that grandpa is enjoying himself with the twinkle in his eye. That wheel chair has given all of his boys a ride at one time or another. It just seems to attract little boys. He will come over and tap papa on the arm and ask how you doing?
He would ask his daddy that same question. He didn't understand why daddy was hooked up to everything.
He was very lucky to get to the hospital before he had a heart attack. The doctor was please that he didn't have any damage to his heart and his lungs cleared up. He made it home from the hospital in time to see the super bowl. He will have to be chauffeured for a while which will be hard for him If he had been able to put it off as he wanted to, he would have had a heart attack. Our daughter is very strong willed and she told him she wasn't raising their little boy by herself. He was going and that was all there was to it. Ethan had been through so much with seeing the fire and hearing the explosion. Seeing them take his daddy in the ambulance was a lot to absorb for only being 3. He had to take his daddy flower's when he got to go see him. He had the phone off the hook in daddy's room and when they asked him what he was doing he said that he was talking to the doctor. We have so much fun with him as all of our boys. They are very special.
The pot holder is one of my latest creations. It was to put me in the mood for Spring which is coming. I will be adding it along with my valentine tea towels at http:// shirleystitches. etsy. com.
