♥ Oh Mother Nature, what a sense of humor you have! ♥

She never ceases to amaze me. I'm convinced Mother Nature has a sense of humor. We've been enjoying the 50 degrees weather for the past two weeks...we even had few days of 70 degrees! Yes, the groundhog was right for once! (I really hate that little furry rodent most years).

I'm ready to go to work...and what do I see when I open the door this morning? Well, our Marchs are usually like this! It will be back to 50 degrees again tomorrow. :)

♥ I'm still here! ♥

Just wanted to check in and let everyone know I'm still around! I haven't been posting much the last few weeks. I had a terrible bout with bronchitis and thought I would never get over it. Then we were out of town last week. I am feeling much better now....especially since it's officially spring! :) I hope to be posting much more often now!

Keeping on crafting!
