Technical Difficulties

Well, my computer is under the weather again. It was working beautifully and then it started acting up again and now it seems to be very ill. I can't have it looked at for a couple of days so I am writing this on my husbands computer which is very old and located in a different part of the house which is not where I go very often.

Just to let you know that I will be getting my chicks next week and am so excited! Hopefully my computer will be working and I will be able to put pictures on here and show everyone. I also went the the Northwest Flower and Garden Show last Friday and had a blast! Saturday morning was spent at a Feed My Starving Children food packing event at the Puyallup Fair grounds and that was great also.

So, just a little view of my world and what has been going on. Oh, and we've been having very cold weather. I will be back soon with pictures of all that's been going on. Tata for now.

Sunrise, Rainbows, Signs of Spring and Changes

There have been many things going on in my world lately and I won't go in to all of them but it's been a busy few weeks. These next four pictures were taken during this past period and I have wanted to get on here and post but haven't.

I had a very big surprise about two weeks ago when I was the winner of Sharon Lovejoy's latest giveaway and received two great books in the mail and some cards. What a treat. Thanks again, Sharon. You can find her on her blog which is listed on my sidebar. It's a great blog and she writes as fascinating on her blog as she does in her books.

This is a picture of the sunrise off our front porch and that is Mount Rainier.

We had a terrific rain storm one afternoon and were left with a beautiful double rainbow. A reminder of God's great promise to us.

A friend of mine had her husband bring me over some plum branches for a little fence around my half moon garden and I brought some in to see if I could get them to bloom and they did. What a treat!

Some of the first daffodils poking their heads out of the ground. Yah daffs! They are even taller than that now.

Our daughter and grandson who have been living with us have moved into an apartment close by and that has been a very big change. The house is very different. So much quieter. We still see each other all time and talk every day.

Our son Chris is moving in with us for awhile as he goes through some changes in his life. It will be nice to have him around.

Our schedules have gotten much busier at church and Mark is starting to work overtime again. We are planning on starting the chicken coop soon so the babies will hopefully be coming in March. I have ordered some chick starter for them.

I always say that I will be better about posting and then things come up and I am not able to so I will just say ta ta for now and hope to write again soon.

Love to all my blogging friends. I am still here, just a few blips along the road.
I hope to get on here soon. Tata for now.
