Well, it's craft day today to keep the little munchkin amused. Decided we would make the above craft which is easy enough for a little one. The head of the bunny is just an outline of her hand with some of the fingers folded over. She should be able to do this...hopefully. Not much else going on....just doing exciting. Yesterday my back went out for a while but after a nights sleep seems pretty good today....fingers crossed. Can't believe March is almost over...even winter. Well, not really saying winter is over until the end of April. Can remember snow during that month.

Sunday Afternoon

A quiet far. Not doing too much, just straightening up around the house and kind of cleaning here and there. Although, I should be cleaning more than straightening. Ü Guys came over yesterday to look at the fence that needs to be taken down. They are guys that Juan knows and the one did some electrical work for us last year. Both are young and have done this type of work before so they will be doing the work. Forgot to ask Juan just when they will be doing it..imagine pretty soon. Don't know just how long they have to wait for the ground to become unfroze. Would think that it is already but ????.
Well, back to my cleaning and straightening.

Finished the above page of photos from Sierra's concert. Wish I had more photos of all the kids singing but it was sooo crowded that I didn't want to get in any one's way. Brandy and I had to stand the whole time against a wall but at least we were up front. The tag in the layout (on the right side) can be pulled out and explains what was happening that night.
We have to get a new fence for one of the sides in the backyard. It is really falling down and needs support. People on that side complain they have no money yet they seem to always be going on trips. Just recently a vacation to Mexico and at least twice a year to Albania where they are from originally. Oh well....what are you going to do? We have had that cedar fence for over 30 years now so is time to replace. Will get the vinyl like we have along the back.

So it's Spring...finally. Yesterday went to Sierra's school 2nd and 3rd grade music recital. Was cute and they all did a really nice job. In the bottom photo she is on the second from the top row, right underneath the really tall girl standing on the top row. I was noticing how diversified the school is now compared to when our kids were going to school. There is every nationality living in Canton now. Makes it a true American town.
Went to the bank this morning and will probably go out in the front yard and rake some. In the backyard will have to pick up all the dead tree branches that fell during the winter. Really just sticks but still have to be picked up.

The above photo is of a Pinocchio doll that Juan has had since he was little. Unfortunately, it was damaged when we were living in Dearborn as somehow it was left outside one night and got damaged from the dew. So was thinking that I will take it over to the doll hospital in Berkley to see what can be done with it and most importantly, how much will be the cost. He has always wanted it fixed. Did get the movie Pinocchio and hadn't realized that it came out in 1939...the same year that Juan was born. We have Alexis today so will probably show the movie to her. But, Juan found a standing chalkboard so she might want to play with that...and of course, there are all the books she chose from the library last week. So much to chose from. Juan also found a child's seat for the car...nice one. Will have to have John put it in my car so I don't have to get his each time I take Alexis somewhere.
Yesterday we had our Irish dinner...corned beef, potatoes and carrots. Ummmmm good! Corned beef melted in your mouth it was so good. Will be having more tonight and have to give Brandy some as they like it.

Would you be knowin'

The above photos were taken a few years back and so was the layout but I'm posting it just for St. Patty's Day. So to all the Irish and would be's, Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all. And a grand day it will be.
Would be be knowin' why the Irish only put two hundred tirty-nine beans in Irish Bean Soup? Because if you be addin' one would be two farty!

Finally Back!

I know, I know, I haven't posted in a while now. Kind of got caught up in Facebook. ??? But I miss being able to rant on and on. Ü So what has happened in the past few weeks? Well, Juan had his 70th birthday.....70!!! Yikes! Took a couple of photos from that event but he didn't shave and if there is anything worse in a photos it's a 70 year old who hasn't no photos to share of that event. The above photos are of Sierra, John and GiGi. GiGi kept trying to lick the paint off Sierra's face so that is the reason she has her head turned a bit. Sierra, Alexis and their mother went skating and that is where she had her face painted. Guess John is looking for a house. He and Juan went yesterday to look at one but it was too small with no basement. Tomorrow he is looking at a foreclosure house that is a two story with four bedrooms near where he is living now.
Tomorrow is Green Day and Juan went and bought some corned beef today and Holiday Market. They sell the Wigleys brand that we all love and would have to go to Eastern Market to buy. Will make that for St. Patty's day along with potatoes and carrots but no cabbage this time. Juan can't seem to stomache it anymore and I'm not getting a head just for me. Will be wearin' the green and eatin' me irish dinner but no stout. Juan takes care of that department.
Will try to keep up this blog more regular from now on....although will still keep track of facebook.
Oh...added a new gadget on this blog. My favorite blog sites. Check it's on the right hand side right after "About Me".
