Friday Fill Ins!!

Wow....I can't believe it is time for another Friday Fill In!! This week has FLOWN by!! we go!

1. Why do we have to be responsible.....sometimes I just want to do what I WANT to do, not what I SHOULD do!!

2. Worry and planning for the future are now habits.

3. I have more yarn than I need, but not as much as I want and NEVER the right weight or amount that I need for any given project!

4. I had never heard the phrase " people get high exercising " and it work for me.....but then again, maybe you have to exercise for more than 10 minute intervals for those endorphins to kick in.

5. I will "do" the way I always do.

6. How was I to know that life would go by so fast...I would have savored it more.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to hopefully having my little dog Max feeling back to his old self, he has been sick the past 24 hours, tomorrow my plans include emptying out a storage warehouse and Sunday, I want to do my usual.....KNIT!

Spring Entertainment

In addition to watching the Hawks feed their young......and doing a bit of hawk "home remodeling"....there is also a bit of new construction taking place!!!

I believe this corner of the house will have to be passed over for cleaning this year!!

Every year we take a Spring pilgrimage......around the house, to make a list of all that has occured during the winter months and needs to be addressed before summer hits. Which of course is almost impossible to complete all that needs to be done, considering Spring usually consists of only a couple of weeks before Summer hits!! LOL!!

The new addition is right off the back porch, which has been a constant source of entertainment for Heidi who has spent countless hours watching the comings and goings of the construction crew. (Thankfully supplies are plentiful and we haven't had the problem that Sydney has has had)!

It will be fun watching things progress!! I'm heading back out to distribute some bits of roving in hopes some will be incorporated in the new house.......looks like I may be too late though....this "house" is almost finished.....I imagine there will be new tenants in the next few days!!

AND....check THIS out!!

Is this not THE cutest rug??

My Mom sent this to me and the picture doesn't do it justice....looks rather washed out when in fact, the colors are very rich!!

It has met with the Heidi seal of approval.

And if you are wondering why there are so many different rug patterns you are seeing, it is for Max....who is pretty much totally blind now. He has such a hard time on the hardwood floors, would start walking then stop.....and whine.....but with the introduction of the rugs....he can feel his way to his food bowl and not get scared. I love this little dog to pieces and fear when it is his time to go.....I'm going to have to go with him!!

Spring Sock Knitting

This Weekend was GORGEOUS!! Temperatures in the high 70's!! (Was it last weekend we had 2" of snow)?? Alabama weather at it's finest!! LOL!!

I did a tiny bit of knitting this weekend and with the weather so nice....I had to head outside with needles and yarn in hand.
I love this time of year....there are sure signs of Spring around, yet the trees for the most part are bare, which makes for prime bird watching. DH and I sat in the yard with binoculars watching the Hawks. We have two nests in our yard and one of the Mama birds was quite busy!!

It's Friday!!!! we go!

1. Helping a friend was my last random act of kindness.

2. Another place, but wait.......I like THIS place!!!

3. I don't care for people that display the negative things in matters of the heart......a genuine, kind heart is more important to me than anything else!

4. Coffee, tea or MARGARITA!!!

5. Unfortunately my want list and my checkbook must sometimes take separate paths.

6. Our Family and Friends reminds me that there is nothing you can't weather!!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going with a friend and my sister to an open house for a new restaurant, tomorrow my plans include working on income tax (yuck) and Sunday, I want to what else.......KNIT!!!!!!
