It still seems like Winter here...





Good Evening everyone.. 
Just a little posting tonight.. 

We have had a couple of lovely days.. 
A bit mild during the day and then cold and windy nights.. 
Lots of icicles hanging around..

There is a big storm forecast for Wednesday.. 
That doesn't mean it will get here but it probably will.. 
You can feel the Spring in the air, though.. 
It has me in the housecleaning mode.. smile.. 

We had some sweet company the other day.. 
A few little visitors looking at books and eating cookies.. 
The dogs were up on the snowbank outside the window and would have loved to join us.. 
I knew they were coming so made a few sweeties .. 
Chocolate Macaroons... most kids love them.. 

And then my friend told me she made a pan of those squares so I had to, too.. smile.. 
Hello Dollies.. 

I took the picture of the old barn when we were on our way to the city last week.. 
I wonder if she accepted.. smile.. 

My dear Mom is turning 80 on her birthday next month.. 
We could all get together this past weekend so we did.. 
All 17 of us.. 
She had a great time..
I will post a few more pics on her actual birthday which is
 April 15.. 

Are you ladies in the Spring cleaning phase yet? 
It is not the same as it used to be, eh? 
I do want to clean some closets and drawers.. 
Take down curtains and hang them out.
That kind of stuff... 

Well, dear ladies sorry for the short post but to be honest I have a weird flu.. 
I feel much better today but have times of being so dizzy.. ugggh.. 

Thanks so much for your visits and comments.. 
So appreciate you all.. 
Ya all rock.. smile.. 

God bless..

  1. Hi Faye;

    I hope that you are feeling better soon. It's awful to be dizzy.

    Your macaroons look good. I can't make them because I would want to eat the entire batch myself.

    Keep warm this week.

  3. I thought those were Hello Dollies. I haven't made them in a very long time and they are so delicious too. I'm sorry you aren't feeling too well and hope it will pass soon. It's nice that you were all able to get together for celebrate your mom's birthday early. Sometimes it's impossible to get everyone together for the actual occasion isn't it? Sounds like a bad storm on Wednesday. Murray is staying home that day and traveling to Lepreau tomorrow instead. I feel better about that as last week he travelled there on that storm day! We wives and mothers sure do a lot of praying for our loved ones don't we? Take care Faye and feel better soon. Hugs.

  11. Happy birthday to your mom! Your pictures are great. I love the one of the little ones eating cookies. So sweet. We are having a wintry day here as well. About 3 " of snow fell this morning. I hope this is winters last attempt for the season. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  12. I surely hope you are better now!!! Dizzyness is NOT fun!!
    Happy Birthday to your Mom! We surprised my hubster with an 80th birthday party after church a couple of months ago....He had no clue. I'm still wondering what he thought all of the tables were decorated for......
    Spring has finally found Texas...it is still chilly, but the redbuds are beginning to pop out and the Chinese pistache trees are dripping their spring "fluff" all over our patio and drive way :^( Next will be the "feathers" off the pecan tree making a mess on the back patio...but I'm not complaining...the sun is lovely! I'm sure that we will get another freeze or two, but overall it's looking better.
    Please pray for rain...we are SO dry!! This summer is going to be an inferno if we don't get rain now, plus some of our most depended upon reservoirs are as much as 50' low....bad stuff.
    Blessings to you,
    J

  15. Hello dear Faye, I hope you feel much better as soon as you can. It is no fun being sick. take care and get lots of rest!
    Yes, I have been cleaning.....closets in our room got a major overhaul. the kitchen is done.... all cupboards are cleaned and washed inside and out and polished. Stainless steel is all scrubbed inside and the out. Then polished with the stainless steal polish, Stove and microwave is cleaned and disinfected. All furniture washed and the whole stepback got a major cleaning ..plus the jelly cupboard. Didn't mean to go into so much detail. I guess it just felt good to think it is done. Jim did help m,. though. With the Fibromyalgia, you never know what the day is going to bring but I did really well. Makes you fell so good to complete a huge project

    I pray you feel better soon. Love the picture of you and Terry!
