This is all about winter cheer through my new tulips!!!!! Boy, did I need to buy myself some cheer!!! Aren't this pretty, nothing like tulips in the dead of winter. Let me show you more.

 Oh, I didn't tell you I bought daffadils too :  )
 Just a breath of happiness and smiles
 Flowers send to my husband during his recovery......so kind.......Thank you friends for all your kind words of healing for my hushand. He is indeed so much better and not in any discomfort. Stitches out (lots of them), cast off, brace on and slow physical therapy started. SOOOOO we are  2 weeks out of the 8 week healing to be back to almost full extension and flexion!!!! Thank you, thank you again.

I am also back to work and back to having more me time, so the first thing I do is Post to you all.  Thank you for visiting and reading my nest of happenings. xo Robin❤

Lots'a News

Didn't mean to be away so long. It was a busy week. I tried a new exercise class called Zumba. It was fabulous!! It's a type of exercise to Latin music. So much fun with a lot of hip motion. I truely thought I would be a hurtin' buckaroo the next day, but instead I just felt more invigorated. A tad sore. I plan on going to the next class which is on Friday. Will walk alot in the mean time. 

We also had our 2nd Blizzard and first in 2011! Lots of snow, schools closed and many stores closed early and work a shorten day. Here's another snowy peek.
I do love a good snow but 3 more months will be too much. I brought some mini-daffodils the other day just for the smell and lovely yellow! Sorry didn't take a picture yet.

Still knitting the last sweater. But in the mean time I wanted to share the sock animals I made. They are so much fun and pretty easy, just alittle tedious with all the raw edges. 
Tell me what you think.

I found this Sock Book on Amazon with lots of pattern and animals. These were my favorite, but I want to make more. 

My next news is my husband broke his elbow yesterday! We decided to take advantage of Saturday's first Sunny day, in sometime now, and go ice skating. We have a nice large pond not far from home. Oh, we were having lots of fun skating, enjoying the sun, scenery, and just being in the great outdoors. AND it only takes one bad rut and falling wrong to end you in the ER. Yup, that's what happened. Surgery tomorrow and around 3 months healing!! Oh my, how things can change in a nano-second. Here's the Sunny Day.

So Lovely, a winter sun..........
Well, that's all for now. Thanks for visiting and please don't hesitate to leave a comment if you like. I always enjoy reading them. I may need lots of blogger friends seeing I will be nursing my husband for awhile. Blessing to all and be safe.    xoRobin❤

Home Again, Home Again

It's always good to be home, even when you've had a good time! I was visiting my 83 year old mom! Her whole life revolves around her children (me and my brother) and her mini dachshund, Gretel. She got this puppy when she was 80 and it has been the best decision for companionship alone!
Here they are, can you tell who rules the roost?!

Yes, that's right, this one---------☝

I was suppose to come home on Saturday via ✈ and this happened

alittle snow in Philadelphia and the airport closes. BUT I didn't realize this until I was at the airport!!! Back to Mom's and boy was she surprised! A bonus day together : )

Soooo fluffy and beautiful

Then today as I was getting ready to leave again, Mom called me to look out the window, to see all these Robin's flying about and landing on her pear tree (bears no pears, just called that because of shape). Spring must be coming early or very confused birds, cos I have never seen so many in one spot. I ran for my camera
Not the best pic, but you have to believe me their were lots!

They were eating something.........

Well anyway, I'm home and happy to get back into the swing of things. One was to read blogs and write my own. Happy to have this opportunity. I wish everyone a great week and time to enjoy your world.

♥Happy New Year One and ALL♥

Hi Friends,
Popping in to wish you all a Happy New Year and a Blessed year for all. It's always so strange to welcome in a new year because mostly things are all the same. It is in ourselves that the changes for new and better and happier and healthier and more creative and thinner and more positive, (oh I could go on, but I won't) occur. It's a feat to do them all, sooooo I just try to be a better person everyday and make the best of each situation with lots of positive energy and smiles. Simply said but not always to do.......but we all try and that's the best part! Happy Happy Year to all my friends, family and followers!

xo Robin❤

Peace to all!
