Just like the Wicked Witch of the West..or was it the East? I forget...Anyway, this is all that is left of our tons of snow and cold from the last few weeks! It's all melted. This week it slowly started to thaw and today it was in the mid 60's so nothing is left. Only green:
Just to give you a perspective on how little this ice piece is..or I should say, was, here's the way it looked on the deck this morning. Of course then I could see how dirty the deck is! Well, when Spring comes and the temps are really in the 60's to stay that will all be fixed. Until then I'll just enjoy this teaser thaw. On Monday they are calling for cold and snow again. Yep, gotta love it when you get these little gifts of warmth! So I decided to do a small project I've been thinking about for a little while. I took a couple of old chairs that were in the garage and cleaned them up, sanded them and painted them for a place that I'll show you at a later time.
I took this old chair that used to be in Jack's office...in fact he said it's probably about 50yrs old because it was in his Dad's office and then it was still there when Jack started practice back in the 70's until a few years ago when we updated the office waiting room. Now it looks like this:
I actually did 2 of them and I already bought some pillows on line today that will sit nicely on them. I hope my plans come together as nice as they have in my brain! I'll let you know! Now I must blog about this other fun thing that came this weekend...My blog book for 2012! I put it all together and Friday it was here all published and waiting:
I now have 4 books. The first year I did this I combined my first 2yrs of blogging into one book. I now blog too much to combine the years! This has become a great way to journal my life.
It's fun to look back and see the events and times spent with family, friends and also my time spent at work. When I look it over and thumb through the pages I can't help but think of the line from one of my favorite movies, "It's a Wonderful Life"...."See George (insert Kathy here!), you really did have a wonderful life!"
