I have been busy, busy, busy.

I have two new babies (great-nieces) coming soon, so I wrote a short childrens book and will have them made up for the kiddos. I do that for all of the nieces and nephews. They seem to like that, so it works well. Then I learned how to make the little blankets where you take two pieces of one yard fabric (Fleece) and cut the sides and you tie it together all the way around the blanket. They are so cool. I have one and hubster has one. Our granddaughter, Alexa made them for us. On cool nights they are very nice to have for your legs. Anyhow, I'm going to pick out the fabric and make two baby blankets for the two new babies coming. It'll be my first time at making one, so I'm excited and know I can always call Alexa and ask her if I have a question. :) I can't wait to pick out the fabric.

Our middle child, Chris is coming from Texas for a visit. Nothing is etched in stone yet, because she has to wait and see if her hubster will be gone to Australia for three weeks. She thought she would come for a visit while he was gone. For eight days, not three weeks. She would be insane by then. She is Alexa's mom and we can't wait to see her again. We spent Christmas with them, but it'll be nice to see her. And alexa plans on coming for a visit in the summer. She's going to battle the heat with no pool. (I wish we had one)

We just got done cleaning out the spare room and we're going to fix it up for Samantha to have as her room, but she also knows that it's going to be the spare room, too. She's fine with that. She can't wait to have her own room. She's been sharing with Shannon for 6 years now. Poor Shannon. (Our oldest daughter) She's such a mess, emotionally, physically and mentally. I feel like she's been here forever and will never leave. One of these days, I think she'll get better with her therapy and so on. We have hope that one day we'll have the house to ourselves. Woot!

Our son is doing well in college and also a tattoo artist. He's very good. He's had job offers from another tattoo shop and he's thinking about switching. He's taking Welding in school but Tattooing has always been his dream. It's nice when you are able to live your life and fulfill some of your dreams. :)

All in all, we're doing pretty darn spiffy. No complaints and loving this 77 degree weather, looking forward to the 82 degree weather tomorrow. :) That's my idea of winter. *grin*

I hope this post finds you all doing well.

Hugs, Patt

Enjoy the weather!

I just have to remember that I can't complain so much in the summer, you know? 110 degrees is plenty warm, but the winters are worth it. :)

77 degree weather? That's warmer than our average *summer*! We've had snow and this morning everything was frozen...

Oh my Gosh, that's so cold. I shivered when I read it. LOL It's all a matter of getting used to your weather. And I'm not used to the cold anymore.

Yeah, when I visited Monument Valley in 1997, at the end of March, we were wandering around in short sleeves, sweating, and the locals were muffled up in heavy sweaters :-)

I've seen the first three eps of Almost Human now. Just a touch too violent for my taste. I'll be happy to watch the rest, but I don't think I'm tempted to get into the fandom.

It gets better, Sheila, but it is violent. Doesn't paint the future well does it? I really enjoy it partly because they remind me of jim and Blair. Love that Bromance. :) Although, I think they call it RoBromance. LOL Enjoy the rest of them.

Busy indeed, lots of good family stuff and I'm sure Samantha will love her new room once its done :D As for the weather, I'd love a bit of heat right now...we've been hit by snow, rain and crazy winds this week. Roll on spring.

Stay warm and may Spring hit you sooner then you think. :)
