Here is a picture of me and my sweet friends (names not given to "protect the innocent!") That's me in the middle though! While our husbands were off fishing, we got together and did a little antiquing...yard saleing, and junk store shopping! We found lots of goodies, things for yard art, bird stuff, this and that! I had to work through their visit though, and it was NOT fun! For about three weeks now I have been working more days per week and overtime...exhausting! But my sweet friends always had dinner ready when I got home, let me put my feet up and snore, yes snore! And on my two days off, we went shopping! Next year we will go to one of their houses and do a lot more together, because I won't be at work, I'll be on vacation!!!
The sun is out now and it's getting up into the 80's already...the snow is GONE! The garden is coming up and that includes my peonies! All the birds are settling in making their nests and the swallows arrived last weekend. I painted a little birdhouse red and a family of swallows have nested there for two years now...so hopefully they will come back again this year. I bought some tomatoes and am supposed to be outside planting them instead of blogging! So needless to say, This post won't be long. I have a few things I am working on, including the kitchen table and chairs - which is almost complete, only one more chair and the table to sand and paint - probably get it done tomorrow? I think tonight I will get back on the computer and visit all your blogs and see what all of you have been up to while I was "out".
Have a great day,
xxxooo

Hi Marilyn! I have decided that you and the spousal unit need to move to Florida! As I sit here typing I am also catching a glimpse of my super-cute-everyone-loves-it-when-they-see-it doggie lamp that sits next to my computer. I have picked up so many CUTE 'topless' lamps lately that need the Cutest Cottage Lamp touch! When will you be here?? tee hee

Hey Marilyn! So happy you enjoyed your visit with good friends. Shopping with friends can be so much fun...I always give myself permission to buy more when I'm with friends. Aren't good friends just the best?! Can't wait to see your finished table and chairs.
