I love March. It means spring is about here, and also is my birth month. I had a birthday on March 2nd. I read where another lady said she was going to go backward from year 40 on. Hmmm....that would make me about 27. LOL I guess it doesn't work when you have at least 2 kids that are older than that. LOL Anyway, I had planned to do a blog post on that day, but I had so many phone calls, that I never could get to it. I have been busy ever since. I have several blog posts lined up for the next week or so talking about what I have been doing. Nothing spectacular, but busy none the less. As I said, I talked on the phone most of my birthday. I heard from mom, MIL, my brothers and our 5 kids. It kept me busy answering the phone. (grin) I made a little trip to town that morning and bought myself this little 5 inch cake and some ice cream. I am still a child at heart. LOL I have to have a cake and ice cream for my birthday! No point in making a whole cake for just the two of us, though, so this little one was just the right size to share.
I have such awesome friends. I will talk about my gifts in the order I received them. First I received these beautiful fat quarters from Joann. She said they were to help brighten my days till spring gets here. At the time I received them, we still had snow on the ground. Thank you, Joann. I love them. I've been looking through my books to come up with a pattern to make them up in.
Bren. I have been using the oatmeal spice soap and my face feels so soft and silky. I love it. Click on the Spiced Cakes button to the right to go check out all of Bren's homemade soap and some other things too. I also got this pretty dish cloth too. I am pretty sure this was made by Charlotte, Bren's daughter. She does a beautiful job of crocheting. Thank you so much, Bren. I'll think of you every time I wash my face. (grin) Please thank Charlotte for me too.
Cyndi. Oh goodess, her sewing is so good. She picked this fabric out especially for me. Just my kind of colors. I know these were made with love in them. Cyndi has been down with a bad knee, but she managed to make this for me anyway. How sweet is that! I already have all my things moved over into them. I can hardly wait to go somewhere so I can show them off.
I have been busy this week working on a few things for Kevin. I will share about them in another post because I already have 12 pictures in this one. Don't know if there is a limit, but I am sure I am about there if there is. (grin) We have had some dreary days this week. We have had rain, snow, sleet, rain, snow, and now a drizzle with lots of wind. Also had some thunder and lightning thrown in there. LOL Just normal spring weather for Missouri. As soon as the mud dries this time, we can plant some of our hardy plants. I already purchased the seed potatoes and onion sets. We didn't plant any onions or potatoes last year and I really missed them. So I have a little over 10 lbs of Pontiac potatoes and about 3 lbs of Yukon Gold potatoes. These are my favorite 2 kinds. We usually just plant yellow onions because the others just don't keep well for us.
Well, I guess I should get this posted. I have been rather long winded. LOL Thank you for visiting. Please come again. Have a great day!
