Did you have a good weekend? We did. I swam on Friday while hubby ran some errands and did some grocery shopping. Oh yes. He's a dear. We watched the rain fall on Saturday and I got some work done on Teddy Bear #1. Yellow. For the 3 year old granddaughter in Ohio. I need to crochet some ears and sew on the legs and ears. And the eyes. I need me some real good Teddy Bear eyes. I hope Michaels can help me. I wonder if they sell noses?
This was Saturday when Buddy was helping me crochet. We went to visit at our older son's house yesterday afternoon and our younger son joined us with his two boys. I asked our older grandsons if they wanted me to make them a bear and both said yes. I have orders for a "mint green" and "dark blue" bear. Then both of the little boys climbed on my lap to see what I was doing and I showed them the bear and that I was crocheting some legs and how they'd fit on the body. I asked them if they'd like a bear and they said yes. I'll have to show them colors when I get to that point and let them choose. :-) I guess I'm in the bear business now. :-D It was fun to see the boys playing and having a good time with each other. Lots of wrestling and roaring and running up and down stairs. Fun stuff.
We took these photos of the Sandy River on the way home on Friday. We have been having terrible flooding in our state this past week. Whole neighborhoods have flooded. Terrible stories such as a young man accidentally driving into a creek and a young woman and her baby were drowned.. just yesterday a woman took her daughter up to see the flooded waters and her daughter fell into the water and was swept away. Awful stuff.During the other seasons there are beaches along this river.
What's amazing is this is the boat landing at Dabney State Park and it wasn't even as flooded as the last time I showed it to you. Also - during the other seasons the water is pretty clear.
It's been so dark and rainy and gloomy for quite a while now and today when we opened our eyes and looked up through our skylights.. the sky was blue and we could see sunshine on the trees in our woods out the French doors of our bedroom. I had to shoot a photo of the sun gleaming through the crystal candelabra, although the photo does not come close to the bright sparkle I saw.
Sunny sparkly bright loveliness. And as quick as a blink of an eye, the fog closes in around us and there is now a weak sun glowing through the clouds.
We've got some trips planned for the upcoming year! In April we have 5 days at our favorite seaside RV park for my birthday. In June we have an 8 day trip to Washington DC! In late Summer our family camp-out at the lake. Early Autumn a week at another beach with our youngest son's family and in October a week at our seaside place in our RV for Dayle's birthday. Do you have some travel plans set up for the year?
