Water Water Every Where

"Never swap horses while crossing a stream."
This was the Plymouth State Parking lot when the river rose over it's bank.. Not a fun call home for the kids.

As you can see it had gone down 6 inches by the time we saw it.
This is the amphitheater where we have the summer concerts. 
The trees would be about 2 feet in from the banking and that would be the electrical box for the bands about 5 feet tallk yikes.

We are being visited by four turkeys everyday it seems. 
Hummm are they trying to tell us something?


And speaking of turkeys, I get to the dump and see this ott light.
I jump out the car load it in all the attachments were there including the receipt. I ran and bought a new bulb nope.. Husband looks at and it is dead,deader than a door nail. :( I was so hoping to get a free ott light. Well the dump has a great return policy so back it goes I have already returned the bulb.



Since my husband and I finished the Downton Abby series (again)
from the library. I picked this CD up.I had never watched it before, I love it! Season two in April it is so wonderful (PBS)
****
I have been reading anything to stay away from hooking, what my problem is I don't know? but I have to get back to it!
Have a great week

A Beautiful day

Today was one of those days that remind me why I love living 
in Northern part of New England.

I decided to shovel the walk way we have not shoveled for most of the winter. Sunglasses on face to the sun ahhhhh

Yes it was deep but I just kept at it, yes girls can move mountains...
of snow.

We were well into the 50's and snow was melting. I am sore but so happy I got out in the sun.

Husband was so sweet for Valentines. We ordered take out and he had the candles lit and a rose ready for the table.
I prefer to stay in after working all day it was relaxing and so lovely.

Have a great week!

Snow Moon

  
The full snow moon was Friday night we had grand plans 
to snowshoe under the moon. It was so cold and husband could never put on enough clothes to keep him warm so we stayed home.

And as you have heard we had snow this weekend!
So I got out my hook. this is a rug I drew from a picture I took this past fall on Star Island. I have been a bit over whelmed thinking about this rug so I decided to take it piece by piece and not worry about the whole just yet 
****
We didn't get the snow the southern part of the state did which is just fine with me about 9.5 inches on top of our already deep snow.
My aunt in Maine was 24 inches and counting when I called her this afternoon. I wished her well and was thankful it was not us.
Happy Valentine's Day!

A Cow And A Pig Went To The Farm

 
Husband and I took Miss B to a winter festival at the farm.

We got rides on the old model T snow mobiles..

We watched them harvest ice and haul it to the ice house with a team of oxen. We petted cows and did a scavenger hunt. She had a great time and was worn out when we headed of hot chocolate.


WE have been very snowy and into the snow again tomorrow.
Getting tired of it.
****
I have a pattern all drawn and now I just 
have to pick up a hook.

There is only one way to achieve happiness on this terrestrial ball, and that is to have a clear conscience or none at all.

Trying To trust The Journey

Today after work it was light enough for me to get a walk in!
So excited for a walk after working 9+ hours. It is so good for the soul.
On Sat I went to see my sweet 93 year old aunt and take her to breakfast. She makes me smile with her no nonsense view of things. We should all be so wise. On the way up her road I find a huge flock of turkeys really there were twice as many on the side of the road I didn't get a picture of.


Some of my facebook friends saw this last week but Miss B came and built me a snowman. He still is keeping and eye on Pepe and I 
just waiting for her to return.
 I was flipping through a magazine and look at the description of this???
**
I still haven't picked up a hook yet my friend is still gravely ill. It is so hard for me. She needs prayers.
*****
On another note I will be seeing a friend I haven't seen in 20+ years this week. We were so close we did everything together but life happened and we lost touch. Over the past year on facebook we reconnected and she is here to see her sick brother. While she is here she is going to stay with us I am excited and nervous.
She was closer to me than either of my sisters. Life can be so harsh.
****
Stay patient and trust the journey

New Bling....

Yep new silverware! I don't think I have purchased new silverware
Since  I was first married and that was a good long time ago.
It felt nice to clean out the old odds and ends.


I had some major stomach issues this week, not a virus but I am on
antibiotics and was on a liquid diet for 2 days. So I pulled out my cookbooks and put markers in pages I want to get back to, crazy I know.

 
I still don't have a rug on my frame so I am going 
to read this, it is silly and if you have read one you have read them all. But it makes me laugh out loud and that is just what I need right now.

One of my friends is gravely ill and I haven't had 
much sleep and I am glued to the phone waiting for up dates
If you have an extra prayer please send it her way.


I made husband some shrimp dip and a birthday cake 
to take to his pool buddies, so he is out playing pool at a friend's house. I am happily tucked in for the night with tea and fresh banana bread. Miss B is coming tomorrow to cheer me up. I can't wait!

A Little Bits...

I got this picture on pintrest but it shows really shows what 
it is like here. We have been rainy and 30's all day and now we have so much fog you can't see across the driveway. I am chilled to the bone. Thank goodness for the wood stove husband just started.

 
I just can't put my Christmas village away yet. I love looking at it, such a 
happy peaceful little village.

 
These are my mom's sisters, my sweet aunts
The beautiful one on the left with the white hair 
will be 93 next Tuesday. She had a cold last week and said she didn't crochet for 2 days, "So you know I have been sick!" I aspire to be like her.
She is independent and feisty! She took me to my first art class when I was a kid and bought me my first barbie. I love talking to
her on the phone she makes me smile with her view of the world.
And yes she is up to date with what is going on in the word.


I am dreaming of the retreat on star island again
and trying to come up with a pattern of a picture I took
that I would love to hook. I have never drawn my own pattern so I am a bit over whelmed by it.
I have a hook in coming up this month so I have to get something
on the frame soon.

Stay warm my sweet friends
