"March Madness!"

This month has been busy for us.

Our anniversary was March 14 and my

husband's birthday was March 22.

We've been fixing things around the house.

Spring is my favorite time of the year!!

There are so many things I want to get done.

This spring I want to get mulch.

It saves me so much time in my flower beds.

Last summer I didn't mulch and it was very hard

keepng up with the weeds.

I was adding to my blog list and

deleted the whole list.

I've got most of the back on but, as

I look at other blogs I see some I've missed.

I did get this rug finished.

It is 26" x19"

The design is by Quilts by Cheri.

Have a great day!

Spring Flowers

  • The last couple days have been beautiful.
Yesterday I was outside all day.
I sowed flowers seeds in flats, it is so nice to do outside.
We heard spring peepers last night, love the sound.
I finished this rug and listed it on Ebay today.
It is a Country Stitches design.
I just love chicks and rabbits.

Every day we have been getting more crocuses blooming.The bees are buzzing all over them.
Our dogs love to watch the chicks.
They will probably be scared of them when they get bigger.
Have a nice weekend!

Peeps and A Rooster Rug

After listening to the weather this morning,

I decided I better get my groceries today.

Tonight it is supposed to start snowing

and we are supposed to get 4 to 8 inches.

I finished hooking this rug this afternoon.

It is a Country Stitches pattern.

I listed it on Ebay tonight.

While I was shopping I stopped at the farm store,TSC.

I kept hearing birds and thought there must be

some birds in the store.

Looked up at the ceiling. LOL!

Then I walked to the next isle and there they were, chicks!!

I have been wanting to get some peeps.

So, called my hubby and he said to get them.

We had everything we needed except a new heat lamp.

They are so cute!

Have a good evening!

Another Sign of Spring

Last night we went Tiger Salamander hunting.
This time of year they are starting to mate.
We have a wetland area on our farm
where Tiger Salamanders lay their eggs.

This is Dillan and Riley holding a Tiger Salamander.
If you shine your flashlight you can see them in the water.

Here's a another one.
The salamanders move from other areas so,
alot of them have to cross the road.
My son, Tommy walked down the road and collected them.
He moved them to the other side of the road so they wouldn't get hit by cars.

It's been a good weekend so far, even though it has been rainy.
My husband, son and I traveled to Shelby Saturday.
They wanted to go to a "guy store", Sportsman's Den.
So, I dropped them off and I went to Ault's
Rug Hooking Store.
They were having a hook in there .
I bought some wool and got to talk to
Tammy and Julie.
There were flood warnings in Shelby
so there weren't many hookers.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

March 1st

What a beautiful sunny day!
The flood water has went down.
My husband had a meeting in Mt. Hope, so I dropped him
off and I went to Berlin.
Bought a couple patterns at Country Craft Cupboard.
Visted a couple thrift stores and went to the grocery store.
When I got home I noticed the first crocuses in the yard blooming.
When I see these crocuses, spring is very near.
Have a great evening!
