Happy Spring, "Up Close" Picture, etc...

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING !!!!!!!   Can you tell I am excited it is Spring?!  I love the Spring weather!!  I love that I can open my windows and smell the cool fresh air and hear the birds sing!  I love, especially, sleeping with my windows open at night!  That is the most glorious feeling of all!  I love the smell.  It is the best perfume in the world.  I love waking up to the birds in the morning and the sunshine on my face!  I just hope the weather cooperates.  In my area we can still have winter-like weather for another month.  That's okay, though, because I know warmth is just around the corner.  What's most important is that light is here!  More daylight!  More sunshine!  Yes, I love the Spring!  I suffer some S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder) symptoms over the winter months and they really start to lift in March.  I don't speak much of my depression in my journal.  I really need to do an entry about that soon.  It's going to take some emotional energy doing the entry so I have been putting it off.  It will get done soon, though.  It is in my head.  I just need to get it down in type.  Entry coming soon...

No one has correctly guessed the "Up Close With Val" picture I posted a few days ago.  I am going to post it again with a little bit more detail.  This object was a wonderful find for me at the local thrift store and I will tell you all about it after it is guessed!  Go ahead and make another stab at it!


I posted my kitty cats a few months ago and just posted Krissy's kitty cat the other day on  It has been fun to see the results of the postings!  If you want to see the
go over and see and give them a nice vote =)!!  Upload your kitties, too!  If you do, send me an email with your link so I can vote for your kitty, too!

Hey, have you been
?  It is so easy and makes you feel so good!  These sites are just one click and take just a few seconds of your time.  You can actually feed a person 1.1 cups of food with just one click of your mouse!!  Just one click every day and you have donated 401.5 cups of food a year !!  One click a day for the animals will feed them 219 cups of food a year and provide them care in a shelter.  There are millions of animals in shelters in this country.  It is such a shame.   Half of these animals die each year.   There are six wonderful causes linked together on one web page.  It takes about sixty seconds of your time a day.  Thanks for doing your part! of my soapbox now.

I hope everyone has a truly beautiful first day of Spring! xox



  1. hello sweetie love the butterflies so pretty it ia cold here today and snow expected ok now with more of the pic i have no clue what it might be cant wait to find out have a great day God bless kelley

  2. Gad... a brass tube resting on a wooden block.  Two discs, very corroded,and the end one very decorative. good gosh.  What the heck. some kind of kitchen implement judging by the corroded disc...but what. The discs must rotate, but not on the brass tube.... All right, this time I guess an antique kelidoscope... Cant wait to see more... I have a suspicion that I wont know what it is even when I see all of it.

  3. An UGLY sculpure?.............LOLOL!


  4. PS.......I'm not a Spring lover. It's when all of my allergies begin. :(
    I can't open my windows because I'll sneeze constantly and the runny nose all day and night. Can't take Claratin or any of those antihistamines. Even though they say "non" drowsy, my body can't move after taking them. I'm like a robot whose arms and legs are made of lead.
    Well, I'm happy you get to feeling better. : )
    I just love my winter air.....Summer air is good too. : )

  5. maybe a really old sewing machine?  maybe? maybe not.


  6. I really like sleeping with the bedroom window open, we did this year even on the coldest nights because of Gordon's oxegon machine, it puts off so much heat and we like a cool bedroom to sleep in. I love the warmer weather we are having, I am trying to make sure and go for walks more often now that it is nice out.
    have a great day
