Pam turns 59!!

Here we are celebrating Pam's 59th Birthday! We've celebrated birthdays together since we were 11 years old!!
Whata fun time we all had. It seems like we don't get together as much as we used to, but we still have a blast and act as crazy as always!!
Aren't props fun???

Motivation and Spring!!

Spring is finally here! It is 70 degrees here today and has such a feel of spring...I love it! Of course the temperature coupled with the fact that I'm hostessing a birthday party luncheon tomorrow for my best friend, Pam, really lit the fire under me today! If I worked like this every day, I'd never have anything left to do!

I had to beg Feola's Flowers to sell me pansies that weren't quite ready to be sold...I need live, blooming flowers on my front porch to welcome my guests tomorrow!

The house refreshing continues...Jack has moved to the garage for a while. I needed a break inside...6 months is too long to share my space with another person every day! He's going to paint the garage ceiling and polyurethane the chestnut walls.
At this point, Jack feels like part of the family! I see more of him than I do Jim!

Art/Recipe that I finished yesterday for the Paper Whimsy Recipe Book. The hardest part was deciding on one recipe to use! I chose this one because the instructions were shorter than most...thus more art room!
At a church picnic once, Jim ate a whole brown bag apple pie! He loves desserts and often starts his meal out with...you guessed it..desserts!! Going back for one piece at a time, he ate the whole thing!
Yes...they are still talking about him at church...and he still loves this pie! Why he's so thin, I'll never know!

Hi all...here I am working on updating my blog...yet again! I have finally accepted the fact that I'm just not going to be one of the world's great bloggers! Hey...one can't be great at everything!!
I've told myself that I'll just try and post a minimum of one a week...or when I have new art or photographs to show . Maybe releaving the pressure to post daily will make it a more enjoyable act. We'll see how it goes...
It's St. Patrick's Day and it has snowed 5-6 inches here today!! Nothing green about Buckhannon...Even though I'm half Irish, I'm not big on St. Patrick's Day. Why? I have no idea...
I bought Maeve Binchy's latest book,Whitethorn Woods, and started it yesterday. It's too soon for me to tell if it's going to be one of her better books or not. She's an author who has some books that are better than other books. But, I read all of her books, the good and the not so good.
