the end of January, already.................

Since  the start of the Grow Your Blog  party, it has been so much fun reading blogs and meeting new friends.  Again, a warm welcome to my new followers. 

After many foggy, grey days we had this on Friday.
Actual blue sky!  Of course by Saturday morning we were back to rain showers.  All in all we've had a mild winter thus far.

Cold's and flu have kept families at home.  Sunday was the first visit in a few weeks from our daughter, son in law and grandsons.  It was so good to see them again.



And taking lots of pictures wonderful!   Getting them to be still while attempting this .......priceless.

Two exchanges gifts mentioned in an earlier post were completed and the parcels are now on their way to their recipients.  So the only photo to show is the inside of one gift.

It's been a busy weekend all the same.  Grocery shopping with my parents on Saturday along with regular errands.  At to this cooking, laundry and  some time reading this...............

Beautiful book, great photos  and the ideas..........there is always room for another hobby, right??

Can't forget Quincy,  He's not a team player when it comes to having his picture taken.   Recently a heart murmur has been detected.  Along with elevated liver enzymes, it seems to be an ongoing saga for him and us. 

He is a special little guy.    As far as he's concerned, there is nothing better than having a sock to play with.  And if it's connected.....bonus!
When a hug will do, two hearts connected.
Have a great week everyone! 
till next time .....................

Love the grandkids photos, so darn cute... and the one with grandpa. Awe... lovely.
So sorry about your Quincy. I was listening on the TV program called MARKET PLACE a few weeks ago and they were blaming some Chicken Jerky dog snacks for making dogs sick and many were having liver failure and were dying. Apparently a lot of research went in this documentary.
I hope that your Quincy will be able to have some help to feel better.

January seems to drag on at this point but I know that I'll soon turn my calendar page. I want some spring weather and I'm tired of being cold.

Great pics but next time have Laurie take some with you in them. I am sure we all would love to see a glimpse of you with the kids also! Looking forward to seeing the outside of your exchange piece. The sun is out here this morning. Not sure if it will stay or not. Still no stitching for me but hopefully later this week if my arms let me. Started working on them myself and scheduled my massage for Thursday afternoon. Then I can be off for the weekend to let it sink in. It is a shame that my stitching muscles are also my working muscles. Hope you have a great week and will look for you on chat!! Scritches to Quincy!!

You have beautiful photos of your cute grandchildren and Quincy looks adorable. ^..^
My Mufftypup (my mini Shuh Tzu) would love to meet Quincy!

Yes, there is always room for another hobby... that book looks yummy. Do you make natural dyes?

Hello Debbie,
Your grandkids are so adorable!
There is nothing like hearing the pidder patter of tiny feet and the laughter of children throughout the house.
I hope your sweet pup gets to feeling better soon. Sweet little guy loves those socks,lol...

Take care, and enjoy the last day of January 2013'

Nothing worse than a dog hanging off your sock, very traumatic ;)
