Just checking in...

Silk daisies... they make me think Spring thoughts.
We have had more snow but at least it is melting quickly!  Outside the world is still in winter mode but there is the hope of grass and flowers:)

Isn't this robin cute?  A sweet friend made it and sent it to me when I was longing for a sign of Spring.  I originally had it sitting on the hutch in the Living Room but a certain Miss Victoria thinks it is a real bird.  I caught her batting the poor robin around the floor.  It is now safely on a top shelf in the family room where my Beanie Baby robin sits... the robin being the official bird of the family.

Thank you to my friend!!!  You blessed me very much.

I'm feeling much better and I'm using the opportunity to catch up on laundry and housework.  I'm keeping crackers in my purse now when I'm on the go to help with nausea.  Reminds me of when I was young and pregnant, hehehe.  Except some of the men in my family (especially a couple of my nephews) get the same symptoms during huge changes in weather and we never "wondered" about them.  ;)

I'm going to try the eucalyptus oil treatment since I have some on hand.  I also always keep tea tree oil.  Many thanks also to those who commented about saving money on K-cups... including my daughter who had to throw in her opinion of Folgers.

Hi There!

I really emjoy your blog. I love robins they are so cheerful, and always remind me of spring. That robin is really cute. I really like your blue counters too. I would be interested in seeing your whole kitchen, a kitchen tour per se after reading so many of your good kitchen tips. Hope your sinuses feel better soon. ~Jan

Oh I went back to read what Stephanie had to say about know, our coffee of usual choice...and laughed so hard. Then I got sidetracked and didn't get back to say how charming your kitchen counter looks, what a good idea silk daisies are while waiting for spring, and what a sweet little robin your friend made for, you!

As much as I love the four seasons I must admit I'm longing for spring too. ...middle of March, it'll soon be here. Your blog had a joyful ring to it today! :)

That's too funny about Miss Victoria and the robin!

Can't believe you had snow!! It's cold here but sunny and almost all of my daffodils have bloomed and the daylillies leaves are even up a few inches!

Love the silk daisies next to that wonderful red Kitchen Aid!

That little felt robin and the nest of eggs is awfully sweet. What a blessing.
