Spring in N Texas

Saturday was the first day of spring~ The trees are blooming with white~the grass is coming up. Birds are chirping in full concert...and then we get this...yep, snow again!

This nest was found when i was trimming one of our trees that had too much snow last time. It wasn't in use-it's from last yr-and i know this because of the colored yarns in there. I put them out in the trees last spring for the birds to use-nice to see they actually did! now it'll be decor for me~

here's what i'm listening to today~I listened to this cd while driving down the Oregon coast-so it reminds me of that when i listen to it~

A Bit of Catching Up

Several weeks ago, before my art mtg, i learned how to make these fabric flowers. The pink one is the "learning" one. The others were ones i played with when i got home. Different fabric, but still cool.
The following wkend was Gary's birthday weekend. His birthday was fri-so i lit his b-day candle from his childhood~
That sunday, we went to Hillsboro to check out a cemetery we were told about. -there were some wrought iron fences around some of the graves-very unique ones. Different from any i've seen before.

We stopped by the post office to mail something i had in the car and it still had the old PO Boxes-so i had to grab the camera for some shots of that as well.
After that-we headed back towards home-and ate a very late lunch at Babe's in Burleson...
here's a dark shot of our food-sure was good~
