A Gift for Me!

 I was coming out of Joann Fabrics
and the woman in the car next to mine
asked if I'd like some flowers.
 She had bought some for a friend and didn't like the carnations
in the arrangement so she took them out
and put them in her trunk.
Loving carnations myself, I gladly took them.
The little bud vase I bought at a the Pawzaar.
It holds the carnation buds perfectly!
Andy sitting on my shoulder looking
quite regal, I think!

Up North Fun

While at Jay's, my sisters went into his sauna.  I have an aversion to 170 degree  heat, so I went in long enough to take some pictures.  Because of  the attire, my sisters would kill me if I posted those!
My brother went in later.  With a sauna, you go in for so many minutes until you've had enough, then go out in the cold. Or, as he did, go into the frozen pond.  Look at the steam coming off of him! Since your body is so hot, you don't feel the freezing water, and it's not for that long, only til you feel a tingle. Then you go back in. I've been told a good sauna is 3 repetitions of this. The benefits of a sauna are many, I just am not that adventurous!
My sister Marti taught Claire how to waltz, and she picked it up so quickly!  Claire was a natural!
She really enjoyed all the fun moves.
Great job Miss Claire!  And your teacher!

Home From Vacation!

For the past few days, my sisters and I have been up north visiting my brother and sister-in-law.
 As always, such a fun time!
If you are a regular visitors to my blog, you know of 
my brother, Jay. (or Jim to anyone else but family!)
I am totally blown away constantly by his talent.
These are two of the birch bark baskets he creates. 
The carvings into the bark he does on the fronts
are just beautiful.  He was getting ready for 
a show in Novi, MI, the Outdoorama.
This deer and her friends were outside the back porch,
 so beautiful up close.
Friday night was home made pizza night! 
My sil Cheryl makes the most
awesome pizza!
She didn't do too bad a job tossing either!
Saturday night, we went to see my brother play drums with his band. 
It was the first time in years I've seen him play.
He's been a professional drummer since he was 17, playing in dance bands. I guess you could say, Jay is a Jack of
all trades, and master of all!
It was Mardi Gras night, and we got beads for knowing who sang the song
 "Kix" by Paul Revere and the Raiders. 
Needless to say, we had a riot!

No, Snow!

Tomorrow we are expecting 6 to 10" of snow!  
Gee, can't wait!
As for my Dr. appointment, I have
agitated arthritis.  Or is it aggravated!?
Either way, eventually it should stop hurting.
He gave me a steroid shot, right in the joint!
Maybe tomorrow I'll go stick my bare foot
in the snow.
