A beautiful watch with my favorite saying "footprints in the sand" .She also gave me a 750 piece puzzle of cute Beagles. I haven't done a puzzle for years. When My husband went out I got a bouquet of flowers! We did not go swimming this morning because my husband will need a couple days of eye drops as he is getting a cataract removed and a lens implant. So no swimming for a couple days. I am crocheting a few things , so I'm just taking my time. Saturday evening we went to church to see "Rewind". A band hired for fund raising. Rock , Doo Wop, 50, and 60's music, it was great. People were even dancing in the aisles.
    Pixieglitter have a great time, and enjoy every minute of your time away!
    Teri, I think you must talk/type as fast as you dance. I enjoy your stories and what is happening with you. You sound like a world wind!
    You got nice gifts for Mother's Day! My daughter (the youngest one) gave me a silver watch with turquoise stones set in the band...I have wanted one of these for years. I love turquoise jewelry (you know the old Hippie stuff). My husband got me one of those folding camp chairs since he has one and my daughter has one but I didn't....we go to the park often and like to sit in those, plus we try to go camping in summer a few times. And they have open air concerts in the city near us, Norwich, on Thursday night in summer and we use them there. Ohhh they have Swing Band concerts there too I love Swing from the WWII era...My father's music I call it. I use it to teach tap class ....Any way to get back on track of what I was talking about....oh I forgot...LOL ....I know...You got really nice Mother's Day gifts...enjoy them

    My kids say I have ADHD...I don't know, they didn't diagnose those things when I went to school....LOL...but I don't sit still and am usually multitasking and want things done asap...so to answer you...yeah ...I suppose I am a whirl wind LOL

    your weather sounds much like ours, although you are a bit more north of us and west. But we very seldom get 90s here in summer. I like summers here compared to where I used to live in NJ...at the Jersey Shore to be exact...over 100 was common in July and extremely humid. My hair would frizz with the humidity and the length I keep it ...that is not a good thing. LOL. No bad weather here I think most of it is in the South.

    Linda, as always, the irises are stunning! Thanks for sharing them with us.

    Has Shelley checked in yet or was she going to be driving home today? How nice for Kevin that his granddad gave him a nice truck.

    Welcome back from your holiday, Larisa!

    Glad to see more of you, Ladyella. I think your maps of where everyone lives is a fun thing for you to do.

    Good grief. Reading about the mothers-in-law made me think of mine. May she rest in peace because she didn't understand what peaceful was when she was living and breathing her brand of interfering in every aspect of our lives!

    I have to stop now and get busy with my sewing. Have a lovely day, everyone.
    Good Morning Poinciana

    Yes Maria Tallchief was tall for a ballerina...very beautiful ...most ballerinas are on the smaller side, and this day and age very thin as compared to Anna Pavlova. But in order for them to be lifted by the men they can't be too big. Zenaida Yanowsky played the Queen of Hearts in the Royal Ballet's Alice in Wonderland and she is very tall also...here is a youtube link of her ....she is 5'9" (1.75 M) Also very beautiful.




    what are you sewing these days? I haven't sewed in a while...maybe over the summer months I can get to some.

    Good Morning My Friends

    The birds are chirping and it is nice out...a bit cloudy...but lets face it ..anything is better than snow. I feel as though we had no transition weather from winter to spring this year. One week I was wearing gloves and snow boots and the salt trucks were out salting the roads and the next week it was 85 degrees! Any of you have weather like that this year...I don 't know, maybe it is just me being too busy to just enjoy spring.

    Well we are picking up my daughter from college tomorrow for her to come home for summer. I miss her being home, but we act like two cats fighting when we are together...Oh don't get me wrong. we get along perfect, we are just loud and screechy when we want to get our point across! LOL. In fact when she is home we are inseparable...but my poor husband being in a house with 2 woman...I feel bad for him. In fact as I type this I am messaging with her on facebook and we are having a conversation as we do every morning...yep Poinciana I think I am ADHD....hahaha...

    This is my last week of classes for this season...so this is the last chance for these dancers to know their stuff!!!! ..Next week week go into rehearsals and the following week are make up classes for snow days, then the show on the 30th. ....and then we start all over again! This dance business is just a vicious circle LOL

    Talk with you all tomorrow!

    Hello everyone! Looks like it's going to be a pretty day. Sun is shining bright, 41 degrees. A little low for us here at this time. They even had frost warnings. Got a busy week ahead. I have to make 4 fruit pies for the local booster club that runs a concession and has 2 meals for this weekend's local rodeo. My aunt ask my sister and I to bake pies, 2 each. My sister is so busy with the last week of school I offered to make hers for her. Mom has physical therapy twice this week, and doctor appts. Well I must get going! Have a great day!Attachment 12421

    Have you enjoyed the warm weather the past few days. Just looking at our high temps the past few days, it was the warmest stretch since June 30th-July 3rd of last summer! We turn much cooler by tomorrow with highs only in the 50s, and frost possible by Thursday morning. If you like the warmth however our cool stretch will be short with warmer weather again by the end of the week.

    Good morning to you all, I'm substituting chocolate milk for coffee this morning which is naughty because my blood sugars are on the high side this week. The weather forecast for the across Canada is lower than seasonal temperatures. This morning is quite cool and will go up to 14C, I need to find a table with both F & C so I call tell you in your readings.
    You are right Teri our weather sounds much like yours. We have not been over 70F very much. Everyone usually start gardens on the long weekend in May but it might be a little later this year.
    Linda you post a lot of lilies, do you have a flower garden. The lilies make a beautiful start to the morning.
    Well, I need to get going as well, may drop in later.
    LadyellaONE DAY AT A TIME

    Ladyella, yes I have alot of flowers. I have around 32 different iris blooming this year and another 10 that didn't bloom this year. Also hollyhocks, old fashioned roses, woodland phlox, 2 different clematis, sunflowers, mock orange bush, lilac bushes, flowering quince bush, forsythia bushes, larkspur, 6 different daylilies, old fashioned single and double cornlilies, peonies, and honeysuckle vine. That's what I can think of off the top of my head. My sister plants a big enough vegetable garden for both of us so I don't plant veggies. Everything except the iris, daylilies, quince, lilac, 1 clematis, mock orange bush, and the peonies were here when we moved here when I was 7 yrs old. Anyway the iris are my favorite flower as you can see. Thanks for asking.
