what a week here on the front range! it has rained everyday, all day for the past 7 days ! what?, i thought i lived on a high plain dessert? truth be told, i enjoyed the cloudy, cold, rainy days and saturday night when the heavy wet snow came in, perfect sleeping weather. living where we have few all day cloudy days let alone a full week of no sun, well…..people start getting weird. i’m talking crabby with drawn weird. by friday people were walking around with eyes cast down, a lethargic one foot in front of the other stroll.  not me, i couldn’t wait to get home to knit! a whole week of comfortably knitting with my irish yarn, or sewing a few more 2’ inch squares together. i did just about everything craft wise but what i should of been working on. i have a girl child that is going to be 30 years old and in only a couple of weeks! how  does this happen? i have so many things to get done for her, things i think she will enjoy using. oh, and yes, i’m having her birthday party here at the house, with games, hot dogs and cake…just like when she was a wee girl of 5. somethings a mom never tires of doing for her kids-a birthday party, no mater if the birthday girl is 5 or 30.
i do believe we are truly turning the corner to the warmer side of spring. in a day or two, more will be planted in the garden, flower pots filled with color and a lot of back porch sitting.
hello spring
( i rarely have all three of my children together, so winter pictures of them).
mother’s day was spent with the girls and mr.p.
number 1 son called me bright and early from Chicago. 
reaping the bennies of being the mom of three great children, (i mean 3 great adult children)!
