warmer weather!! hooray!!!

The weatherman... weatherperson... weatherwoman....  which ever says that will will be getting warmer this weekend. Tomorrow will be in the 50's and by Monday we will hit 70!!  I am really looking forward to warmer weather!!

I posted this little bear on BearPile this morning...
I named him Surprise since no one expects to "crack open" an Easter egg and find a tiny bear.  The egg was needle felted from wool roving and has blanket stitching along the opening and a few polymer resin "jelly beans".
Surprise is headed off to Colorado !

49th anniversary

On the morning of the 12th I found that Facebook had set up a posting for our 49th wedding anniversary.... so I shared it.  I can't believe how many people saw it and liked it or commented!  It made me feel like they were all celebrating with us.  Here are the pictures Facebook used...
Facebook found  them in our album from our trip to Ireland last September!  Bob and I are already thinking about "how to celebrate our 50th" next year!!

Marshall will be sailing away ( hopefully) in his wooden shoe boat... The shoe has "made in Holland" stamped on the bottom. Marshall is 6 3/4 inches tall... the shoe/boat is 10 inches from toe to heel.
