Hi. I am here, but have just not been having a lot of time last month or so to post. I have from time to time, been visiting everyone's blogs. I may not comment, but I am reading! I have no pictures. It is raining outside and is rather dreary here. I am trying to get ready for the Great Backyard Bird Count, which starts on Friday (tomorrow). I bought seed, and the darn squirrel came and ate EVERY seed in my feeder OVERNIGHT! He is trying to eat up my seed block too, but I keep shoo-ing him away! He is a rascal! I will have to get back out to refill the feeder whenever it decides to stop raining.
This year, I have had my same bird friends coming by...a Cardinal couple, a bunch of male and female Painted Buntings, and 1 Cowbird. Funny the darn Cowbird is always alone for the past 3-4 years. I see a few Blue Jays. Other than that I just have the water birds, like Ibis, Egrets, etc. come by in the front yard generally. I am looking forward to the bird count though.
My new granddaughter, Audrey is doing well and is super cute and still so tiny!!! She lives with her parents and I see her about once a week.
I am not having time for embroidery. The one thing I did get to do is work on my world stamp collection two weekends ago. I have told myself I can buy no more fun ones (topical; themed ones) until I get all the ones I already have in the book! It requires a lot of steaming as most of mine are still on envelopes and have to be taken off and dry before I can put them in.
Today the grand kids both went to school with treats to share, and their Valentine cards of course. Emily was dressed in a pretty little pink dress with hearts in the tulle overlay. All the little girls looked like princesses! Both kids were VERY happy to go to school today! What a change! I am about to order us heart shaped pizzas for dinner from Papa Johns. This is becoming a tradition for us. I will make a salad to go with.
So, life goes on. This is just one of my super busy periods. I hope to be back posting regularly again soon!
