This, That and the other.

Well. We had a nice quiet weekend. Monday I headed out to see Trics from By the hills for a visit. I just realized she hasn't blogged for 11 months! Wow!

We had a good visit. Gwyn emptied her plastics cupboard... LOL and we had tea. I traveled down gravel to visit.. made it just over an hour to see her! Was great! Though I must say.. I will not be taking Highway 310 any time soon again! What a sh**hole!!! It's worse than a bad gravel road.. and by bad I mean rough. So on the way back I did all gravel.. much nicer.

Anyways.. got to run.. things are quiet around here today too...

Catch you all later!

Off the Munchkin website.....

Just a little astrolude....

Sign: Sagittarius
(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

Rules: Jupiter
Quality: Mutable, Fire
Birth stones: Carbuncle, Turqoiuse
Birth color: Light Blue
Birth metal: Tin
Harmonious signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
This little Sagitarrian will be your best friend. loving and trustful and optimistic, they will always see the good in people and loves to experience life to the fullest. Better be prepared to have a pet because this child is passionate about animals and really needs one or more. your baby sagittarius loves to play and visit people. They are bright, quick and eager to learn. Take your baby on long walks and let them play outdoors where they thrive in the sun and fresh air. Your baby is insatiably curious and restless and impatient but will be a source of delight and affection your whole life long.

Does it sound like our Gwyn or what???? Though we can certainly see the influence of Scorpio.....

Sign: Scorpio
(Oct.23 - Nov. 21)

Rules: Mars
Quality: Fixed, Water
Birth stones: Topaz, Malachite
Birth color: Deep Red
Birth metal: Steel
Harmonious signs: Cancer, Pisces
Your young and visual Scorpio child is very strong willed and very goal oriented. This baby has a keen mind and loves challenges like hide-and-go-seek or magic tricks. They resent harsh orders and like to be dealt with reason on an adult level much better. Be very forthright with your Scorpio child because they possess an uncanny ability to sense when they are being deceived. Scorpios don't get mad, they get even. Learning comes easy to Scorpios and they need to be challenged and kept busy. Once they get a goal in mind, they pursue with incredible endurance. Your little Scorpio is very independent but very loving.

Today... Your photo treat...

Well, Gwyn figured there wasn't enough pictures of toys on this blog.. so here we have it. Her Tonka truck parked at the water jug, next to the stove.. with her juice cup on the floor. And her car. It parks by the front door. So if your visiting, come to the back.. LOL mind you she likes to ride around in it too so... LOL
And our little star.. LOL I think she is tired of pictures there...
Gwyn sitting nicely smiling.. but not at me!
Just my sweetie...

This weekends pictures...

Grandma and Grandpa brought Gwyn some beautiful cloths. As per usual grandma has picked out some beautiful pieces. Thank you Grandma. Anyways, this sweater was among them, a valentines sweater for our Gwyn. :) It is very pretty on her.
Grandma and Gwyn were watching daddy and grandpa working on our shed. They got 4 walls up. Not completely plywood but looking good! We have some great progress!!!
And no, honey that is grandpa's backside not yours!!!

Visit with Mom and Dad

Well, Friday night I got a call from Mom. Could they come for a visit? Of course they can!! So, they arrived hmm 2pm ish on Saturday. We had a great visit. Gwyn loves to see her grandma and grandpa. Their visit is always far to short. They left today Sunday at 4pm. I guess 26hrs is kinda short when you think you sleep for a good 8 or so of them. But was very nice to have them out for a visit. Gwyn loved playing with her grand's. She was sad to see them go, as was I. I just wish for 3 day weekends for them to come visit.. but you have to take what you can get! LOL We will go visit sometime later this month and stay a few days.. usually a week. I have some things I want to pick up at Costco. I also would love to take Gwyn to the pool in the city. She loves the bath so much, I bet she would love the pool! Can't imagine trying to get her out of it though.. LOL Dad and James got all the walls standing on the shed. Wow it looks big.... Which is good because we have a lot of crap to store. LOL I know that sounds bad to call it crap.. but it's the stuff you can't get rid of because you need it, but you have to store it because you don't need it every day!!! How do we accumulate so much of it is what I would like to know... LOL Anyways. That is all for me to night... I have a load of laundry to change then I am off to bed.. will hunt down some pictures and what not tomorrow for you all... Maybe...
Talk to you all soon,
I've missed you all too....

More snow.....

My girlie having breakfast...
The shed in progress....
Snow, snow, snow and more snow....
Do we really need more snow? It was very nice to get that big dump of snow last week... by nice I mean the farmer's fields really really needed it. Nothing like the earth sticking out of the snow.. so now it's covered. But today.. we are getting more snow. Not that I am complaining. It's beautiful.. but I thought we had enough.. LOL
Anyways, 2 Big things. Gwyn is sitting up to the table in her chair. Loves it. And, she is down on her mattress for naps. We had to take the mattress out of the crib and put it on the floor. I think she may have some claustrophobia. Does not like to be confined/restrained. Now she will nap on the mattress... we are working on overnights too.. Last night she made it until... midnight.... the night before was better she made it all the way to 2am. But, headed in the right direction!
Well, that's about all.. I quit farming on face book..... thank gawd.. it was time... so now I have time to blog again.. I hope.. and maybe will get to do some sewing.. want to sew some bibs for Gwyn before all my tea towels are stained!!! Nice when she goes down for a nap!!!
Off and running.... BFN
