I am so thrilled to finally see a sign of spring in our yard. It isn't very bright outside so the picture is a little dark, but I am very happy to see this daffy anyway. On the weekend, we are supposed to get snow again, but I am not thinking about that.
Carolien awarded me on her blog. You can click on Carolien from my list at the side . She lives in Holland and I am very happy that I will soon be meeting her. She even put her picture on her blog so I could put a face to the name. Thank you for the award.
I am giving this award to Britt, Roberta, Barbara, Nancy and Christine. All of their blogs are also listed on the side of my blog. They are all friends from our stitching group. They have become friends.

Yes they all have become real friends. Congratulations on your award too dear mother.

Hey, you have a daffy!!! Neat! I am hoping our daffodils are not all gone by the time you and George arrive. It would be a shame. But there will be flowers out and we will be driving along the route with all the bulb fields. Boy, it is really getting close now!

Love and hugs ~

First and foremost Nancy dear - a very happy belated Birthday greeting - sorry I was away when all the festivities took place! Many happy returns.

Loved looking at the family pics you kindly shared - what beautiful women in your family - the men aren't so bad either LOL! Heidi was a gorgeous bride.

Now you are leaving us just as Spring arrives in your area - well I hope you don't get snow again. I believe you will be away a month, right? Do hope you will still post when possible - guess Heidi will also keep us up to date with your gallivanting and shenanigans while there, ha! ha! Make sure to take pics of those bulb fields - I love the tulips so much and will just have to get over there at this time of year so I can see them blooming - perhaps next year!

Nancy, you are such a dear and I really appreciate your comments always - thank you for being such a good blog friend. Now I must go check in with everyone else in between laundry and gardening chores, and start some much needed Spring cleaning ugh!

I hope you have a wonderful time in Holland! How I envy you that trip at this time of year. I'm sure that there will be some lovely photos, though, and great descriptions of what you see and do!
Bon Voyage!

Awwww, that is so nice of her! You are a good friend! Even though you are my Gramma, I have to say that you are a friend as well!

I am so very glad that spring is arriving! We have had sun for the past few days and it is beautiful! :)

Nancy, Thank you so much for your friendship and award. I am slowly getting backinto the swing of things, but it will be awhile before I can stay up to date.

The picture your friend sent of California - absolutely beautiful colors.

Also, will try to get your B'day gift off to you sometime next week. I am so sorry I am so late with this!!
