Seeing is believing

Yes, we did get new SNOW! No, we are all not happy! 30 degrees F and windy BUT the sun is out.
This NOW has to be the end, we have had snow on Easter before but I don't think this late. Easter will still happen, maybe not an outside egg hunt but that's OK. We aren't having anyone for Easter this year so we will manage just fine.

Abby's "8" year old birthday party was fabulous. Please take a look

                                                 Party was at a paint your own pottery shop

                                      Love this picture, the back of little Lizzy in her tutu skirt

                                                    So intent and doing a beautiful job

                                                   Concentrating on painting the primer

                                                 Finished in time and mostly dry with glaze

 It was so much fun to watch the kids interact and have fun together. Oh to be "8" years old.
We had a nice visit, lunch together and then headed home. Just a perfect day❤

I have a few Easter decorations up but not my usually due to renovation in progress, no visitors, weather and just kind of not in the mood. But here are a few snippets of Easter cheer.

                     Almost forgot to show Abby's birthday cake. Horses were her theme!!
                                                            And it was so yummy

I want to wish all of you a Happy Weekend, Happy Easter, Happy Passover to all my blogging friends. I would like to welcome my new followers and thank you so much for finding me here in the world wide web! Happy Spring to you all and enjoy your free time.


            Couldn't resist sharing this pic of my girls and myself.  I look happy because I am!!!

Life goes on

Life goes on, just a little bit more complicated. We were all scheduled to have our bedroom bathroom renovated or shall I say demoed. Oh, it will be beautiful, but what a job to move and clear everything out alone and move it upstairs. (I should be really skinny) (not)   Our bedroom is on the 1st floor, so now we are upstairs and poor Hb has to go up at night and down in the morning on a cane. Not ideal, but we have had this in the works  "life does go on".
This master bathroom was here when we moved in 6 years ago and we have wanted to redo it ever since.  

                                                                    Old bathroom


Ta Da moment in about a month, or so.  Can't wait...... lots of banging and slamming and disrupting my daily routine.  But it will be worth it I'm sure  :  )

Snow is finally disappearing here in New England. If you look hard you can see some green and buds. Look hard.........

Not a pretty sight but it will be soon.............

This is a pretty sight though, all wrapped up to visit with grandchildren for Abby's "8th" birthday.
Time sure does go by fast. We will go to the end of her kids party and then visit, play and have a meal. I take all the time I can get with them. They are going to Disney for Easter so we won't be seeing them then.

                          From this

               To this beautiful girl

These are the two sweaters I made being used!  :  )

Anyone who has grandchildren knows the joy that they bring. My heart is so full when I am with them and I can't wait to see them tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend planned or even a spontaneous adventure, walk, or relaxation. Thank you all so much for your kind comments for my husband, they helped in so many ways. Sorry if I haven't had a chance to comment this past week but time got away from me. I have missed a few I know.

Happy Spring, xoRobin

                                                     Puzzle we did while recouping

Me too,  xoJack

Happy Hats

I have had such fun making baby hats this week! They are so fun and I can make one in a day and feel a sense of accomplishment. Since I have been helping my Hb so much with him not feeling well, it has been so good for me. You know what, I have been amiss in updating what happened this past Saturday. My Hb fell on ice and really went down hard. A few hours in the ER, many X-rays but thankfully nothing broken just lots of pain and unable to walk on his right leg. So he has been on crutches all week and I have been chauffeuring him to and from work. I did get him to stay home on Monday and half day on Tuesday. He has made great headway and now is on one crutch.....but really he needs a break. (And I don't mean that literally) I hope he can have a low key weekend and I'm going to see to it. Oh my, life sure does happen!

Can I show you my baby hats, here are the new ones

Baby blue hat with a cute ducky button and a new crocheted ball (pattern) from the one and only Lucy!

            Variegated baby yarn hat with pink birdie button and a pom pom. (made on a fork)

         Pretty in pink baby hat with doggy button and tiny stem

                           Three in a row       

I treated myself to these two ceramic houses from 

They are so sweet, I think I may have started a collection. Just what I don't need another collection.....I have quite the love of tiny cuteness, that always turn into a new obsession. Well, it could be worse.

Last but not least I wanted to wish all of you a Happy April and I know it is most welcome to everyone. 
Happy weekend to you all and many thanks for popping in to visit. We plan on relaxing with Amy, Andy and an extra dog for Jack. Hope your time is lazy or busy just the way you want it  : )


                         Happy Hibiscus Day                                       

and Jack🐾
