Here is a picture of my brother and I back in the day.  I remember always getting a new Easter dress and bonnet every year.

My New Blocks

I wanted to share with you my new blocks that my friend Joan made for me.  There are letters and some numbers on each side of the blocks so I can spell out several different things.  It will be fun to change up the sayings for each season. Such a wonderful gift to receive and extra special because you made them….thank you Joan!

Hope you are all still thinking “Spring!”

Twenty Fifth

Today is Rusty and my 25th wedding anniversary.  It sure doesn’t seem like it has been 25 years.  Time has gone by so quickly.

I was always told that once you are out of school, time flies….and it certainly has!

Enjoy your week everyone!

I Got Nothing!

pcpics 279

What can I say except I got nothing!  I’m afraid I haven’t been a very good blogger lately. I must be experiencing the winter blahs~    Have I been doing anything creative? NO!   Have I been doing anything constructive?  Not really, just the normal routine of working and of course the same old everyday stuff.  I have been watching American Idol, The Voice, and Worse Cooks in America.  I have also been watching The Bachelor.  I have to say, it’s been a different one for sure.  Don’t know about that Juan Pablo!  I will be anxious to see how it ends next week. 

Everybody think Spring!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Rusty surprised me with these beautiful roses.  I thought they were so pretty because they are not really red and they are not really pink. He also picked out the milking can all by himself.lpcp 1305

Of course who else has to check them out…

He seems to think everything is his but I guess it was nice that He took the time to stop and smell the roses! :-)

A Few Hearts

I decided if I was going to do any decorating for Valentine’s Day, I best be putting it out.  I’ve been putting it off because I didn’t know if Jasper would leave my hearts alone…

Well….that didn’t take long did it?!  I no more got my camera out to take some pictures and he had to jump up on the table and check out my hearts and chew on my fake plant.  I still love him though~

I went all out on this decoration. Come on now, it took a lot of effort and thought to hang that heart on the knob.  Feel free to steal my idea as it is quite remarkable, ha ha!lpcp 1286

Then I left this little tree out thinking I would hang some hearts on it.  I could only locate 3 small hearts.  I know I have more but not a clue where!

So that is the extent of my Valentine displays.  I’ll let you know if Jasper leaves me with any hearts by the 14th!

How Do You Do It?!

lpcp 1261

It’s been awhile since I have done any stitching. Sometimes I see a pattern that I really would like to make but now I think I know why I keep putting if off.  Today I had to sew a button on a shirt and it was quite the ordeal.  Jasper kept jumping on the shirt, then he would see my tape measure laying in the sewing box and he kept trying to take off with it.  Then just about the time I would get the button lined up where I wanted it, he would attack the shirt again.  Not to mention trying to thread a needle with him there!  So tell me folks, is there a  secret to crafting with a cat around?  I have seen some of your blogs where the cat is sitting there so angelic like watching or perhaps just laying on a piece of material taking it all in.  Not Jasper, he’s doing somersaults, paw swiping, mouth chewing, and tail flopping all the while!  It was a good thing I only had to sew a button on.  I guess he is still in that playful kitten stage.  As you can see above, he does take a nap when I’m NOT trying to work on anything. Maybe I just need to show him the proper way to sew……then again, don’t think it’s gonna work!
