Hello Dear Friends!
I know I'm very late with this post today, but I thought I'd still try to sneak it in. It's been a wonderfully busy - and fun - week in my northwoods. My Kiddos are on Spring break as I mentioned before. We've all had some fun outdoor time...playing sports in our driveway and playing frisbee with Ruby in our backyard. Even my teenager played along nicely with his sister some of the time, and we all played some fun games together. But my Annie and I have spent a lot of time together. Crafting, playing games, watching shows, shopping etc. So I thought I'd share a few quick photos of some of my week for my 5 things today. I will try to come around sometime this weekend and catch up visits with many of you lovely Friends! My daughter is in a hockey AND a volleyball tourney this weekend. So we will be doing extra running around! (pray for me!) Lol
Annie had some buddies sleepover and we had a big day out at the mall and went to Bridgeman's for lunch....and of course ice cream!
She is definitely my Girl. On the chillier days we put it in a lot of time crafting away! PS: Spot the Ruby in this photo. ;)
I recently picked up some old keys at an antique store. I cleaned them up and started using my modge podge and jewelry glue to embellish them a bit. I've made 3 different ones so far (I'll share more in another post). I plan to make a few more yet and then I'll share all about them. I added cording to them in order to re-purpose them to have a second life as necklaces.
I, also, recently picked up a new sketch pad, and I was trying my hand at some sketching of different kinds of tulips. Next up I'm going to try coloring them with my watercolor pencils.
We watched the bay begin to open up and even show open water in some areas! I think there's a chance all the ice could flow out by Easter time and we'd have full water again for the season. Yay Spring!! Even Ruby was enjoying nature's show. ;)
My Mom and I often go visit my MIL (whom has Alzheimer's and lives in a facility) during the week. But it was a special treat to have Annie along to get extra time with her Grandma too.
