The days are going so fast!   My calendar is getting fuller all the time!  We continue to have snow and I decided to enjoy it thoroughly!  If you cannot beat it, join it!
 This is my Victorian Santa that I made last week and he melted away when we had a nice sunny day.  Next is my Snow Bunny that I made this last week so the school bus children could see it when they passed the house.  It melted even faster on a day we had a windy mild day! :(
 But I had lots of making them and neighbors were tickled to see them, too-ha!  Oh wait, maybe they think I am a crazy old lady!  ha!
I have been painting my living room over ugly old paneling and it is coming out nice!  Cheerful!  While on the ladder and painting over a window, this was my view of snow on the Spirea Bush, so beautiful and my original hand made silhouettes were great against this snowy background! 

These sparrows and wrens are waiting for the feeder to be filled, which I did promptly after taking their photo through the dining room window-ha!  All lined up like that reminded me of the commercial on TV where the man is looking at birds on electric lines that look like a music staff and he writes a melody from it...

These are sitting in the branches of a cluster of trees in the yard.  There are Rose of Sharon, Maple and some kind of fruit tree that has beautiful flower clusters and then small grape like berries.  I am not sure if someone originally planted them together on purpose or nature did it but after buying the house last summer, I trimmed it up and decided to keep it.  
It really is pretty when the leaves and blossoms are on it.  It was so overgrown that it was over the walk and from the street, you could not see the right side of the house.

Thanks so much for visiting today and do come again.  Pls leave a comment, I treasure them!

Beautiful Deer

Thursdays are my "go to the farm" days.  My lifetime friend, Sonny is 85, has had a stroke and is in a wheelchair.  She is one of the bravest, strongest ladies I know.  I love her very much.  Since I have moved back to my hometown, I make a supper for her and take it to the farm as we visit for about an hour and a half.  The time is filled with girlish laughter, sweet memories and lovely music....  I love going there and yesterday we were blessed with 2 huge beautiful deer in the apple orchard and right in the driveway!!  The sun room windows were marred with melting ice and bright sun but I was still pleased to get these photos!  I am always blessed when I am there!

Sonny takes care of herself, has taught herself to print with her left hand, does housework and closet cleaning, has beautiful fish tanks, and tends beautiful plants in her sun room.  Her sense of humor has never waned and we often find ourselves breathless from laughter.  What a wonderful, wonderful blessing!!  She has a huge German Shepherd who thankfully likes me-ha!  And I love him, too.  His head is as big as a bear.  Just wanted to share with you as helping others has always been my Christian JOY!  How can you help someone by doing one kind thing a week for them?  Thanks for coming today, have a nice weekend.

My wild heart to yours...
