Spring has sprung, the grass is green…

and I hear the little birdies sing.  Actually I hear them flying into my windows!  I think we have swallows trying to build a nest somewhere on our house.  I would prefer they not do that but…Need proof?? Not a sparrow but a little birdy was trying to get my attention.  Tap tap tap.  And then looked in at me like “aren’t you going to let me in??”

Our new home is just lovely and more room than I ever dreamed we would have.  The size makes it impossible to clean all at once. For me anyway. So I am perusing the Internet in search of THE BEST method to get it all cleaned and maintain a level of cleanliness that will make us all happy.  I still have unpacking to do and pictures to hang.  I have one picture hung in the laundry room.  I know ~~an odd room to start in but I put a hole in the wall trying to hang a broom rack and ugh…well I hung a picture over it.  That’s all I am going to say about it.  But I won’t be hanging anything that requires a screw or nail. Jerry will have to do those.  But it was the perfect place for one of two signed Warren Kimble prints I have.

I met Mr. Kimble on one of my trips to Brandon, VT.  The quintessential Vermont town I like to think of as my second home. Here’s a picture of the day I met him.  I was pretty stoked. 248692_2043219450951_5793071_n

Rachel and I strolled into his gallery and there he was painting! He was so gracious and talked to Rachel about her art.

Now where was I going with all this???  Let’s see…made 125 little pies this weekend…for a wedding.

…so far I have biked 8 miles this weekend and tomorrow I would like to add at least 4 more.  See ~~ I joined a gym – it costs money SO, I am more motivated to actually do what my trainer tells me to do.

I know this post seems like nothing more than fits and starts but I have taken all day to write it.  Work a while, ride a while, write a little.

I really just wanted to say hello and check in.  My poor blog is so neglected and in turn my readers.  If in fact anyone is reading this…if you are leave me a little note.  And I will do my best to do better.  It’s hard to believe I used to average 20K unique hits a month.  Maybe that’s not a lot but it sounds like a lot to me!!

Peace!

Susan

It can take a long time to get settled into a new house and when you are working within the limitations of an illness, even longer. I can’t wait to see photos when all is settled in and looking like a home. My mama always said that if a bird settled on your window sill and looked in, you were going to get a visitor. If they hit the window and died, that was another story, but we won’t go there! Love ya! xxoo

Well guess what! I am getting visitors today! LOL Love you too Marie! We have to catch up and chat soon!

Oh those pies are so cute!! I can’t imagine how long that took you….but the guests will love them. I always request a pie for my birthday!

They really didn’t take long Cherrie. You get a rhythm going and you can whip them out pretty fast!
