The beautiful Pacific Northwest
I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

26 February 2010

Thank goodness it's Friday

So glad this week is over! My father in law has been ill, then had surgery, and his recovery has been rough. But now things are looking up and maybe somewhat back to normal at our household! I am looking forward to a weekend full of creativity, since the weather outside is expected to be heavy rain. But all is good, since last weekend was sunny and the roses got pruned, and I made a dent in the weed patch...and oh, the daffodils are blooming full force!

Sounds wonderful while we are under nearly 2 feet of snow it will awhile before we see any spring flowers!
Have a Wonderful Day!

I'm glad to hear your Father in law is doing better. It's tough when someone is ill in the family.
It was difficult for everyone when my mother was so ill for so long..and before that, Dad.

I need to see about getting my blog changed a bit. When you have time can you email me? Something a bit more Spring? :)

It is not fun when there is sickness in the family. Prayers do a lot for all of us. I think I would sooner have some rain then the snow we got plus the possibilites of more this Sunday. I am terribly tired of it. I am so ready for spring and I was glad that it was Friday. Your Missouri Friend.

So glad your Dad is better. Prayers to you all.
We had another 1-2" of snow overnight..yippee...but believe it or not daffodils and tulips are trying push thru! It hasn't been in single digits for long periods and during the day it get up to 32-45 somedays. With the snow that is on the ground it creates a hotbed effect and they love the 33-40* temp to keep em for longer periods.
Well, better get to gettin. The computer at work crashed after Microsoft did an update and they have to figure out what they did.
