Spring's a coming!

I'm still trying to figure out where everything is on my computer - pictures are not loading in the same folder they were before so I'm having too find then and copy them to where I know where they are. Hopefully Timothy can find some time to help me soon or I'll just keep poking around and hope I don't make things worse. All the really important stuff (minus a few photos that i didn't take) are here, I just have to look for them or download them again since they are still on my camera. All the essentials are working for now so I'm not complaining - just sayin that's how it is. Back up people! Says the person who hasn't backed up since getting back up and running. :)

If you could see my car you would say spring is here. It used to be gray - now it is a nasty yellow-green color!
 Anyway - i went out back last week and took a couple of pictures of the trees we planted - was it last year or the year before?

 We had a few cold snaps this winter and I was afraid they would bite the dust but I was surprised to see the little blooms on them.

a few days later they started sprouting leaves! 

I'm kinda wanting to get out and do some yard work but the time and money budget are tapped out at the moment and by the time I get around to it it will probably be blistering hot. That is what you get in Texas - usually one extreme or the other (sometimes in the same day!) Yesterday I went out and gave a look see to see if anything else is coming back. Some of it I am going to have to wait until it gets a little bigger before I decide if it is a weed to pull or a flower to leave be.

I've been working on a few quilting and stitching projects that I can't show pictures of yet so stay tuned! Hubby is taking next week off - it is our anniversary but we have no plans - just going to fly bythe seat of our pants and see what happens - we may do some things that need to be done around here or we might get out and do something who knows, so I don't know if I will spend any time at the computer or not, but I'll be back soon! I'm also painfully addicted to pinterest If I spent as much time actually making stuff as I do looking at it I would have bunches of stuff to show!

Enjoy the pleasant weather - we all know come about July we will all be complaining about the heat - and I'll be the one yelling the loudest.

 I finally got a picture to load! Hubby brought these flowers home to me on Valentines Day, the have long since wilted and been discarded but it is the only picture I can find on my computer. I downloaded a bunch of photos but I don't know where they went. Before they always downloaded into the same folder but they aren't there and I haven't had a lot of time to look around and figure out what changed and how to change it back. 

Anyway - we have been back and forth with this crazy weather. Enough already either stay cold or bring on spring. This having two seasons in one day is getting quite old!

I did get Bertha all cleaned up and ready to start a new project - I hope to get to work on it some this weekend but who knows what will be going on here then. 

Hope you are all getting lots of crafting/stitching/sewing done! I hope to get back to reading blogs soon too, can't wait to see what you have been up to - I just need more hours in the day. Wish I was one of those people who can function on a few hours sleep a night, but sadly I'm not. 

Now I am going to fire up the glue gun and get another project done that has been on the to do list. I'll show pictures - eventually!
