Mid March

Oh dear, I had a partial blog written, and just erased it all, since I had started it in February.  So far, 2019 has not been great for the communities up around here.  We have had 3 deaths of seniors, and an accidental death of an eight year old boy.  It does seem as though sorrow walks among us.

Mid March and there is snow still on the ground, though it is gradually disappearing. With rain expected tonight, it will probably be gone by morning. The bare ground is a mess when the temp gets above zero. My driveway is a series of ruts and puddles.

I  make home made cards for friends, birthday, sympathy, etc. A friend has kept hers and was going through them. She showed them to me, and there was one that I couldn't believe it had painted. I am using it as a header.

(A week later)...... Here are a few more cards that I did.......

Don't know how to turn this one

or this one

The first day of Spring has come and gone and brought with it lots of rain so that most of the snow has gone. Hopefully now the days will begin to warm. Orchard pruning has begun, and I know that lots of folks are planning their gardens. It is the end of March break here and my #2 granddaughter will be coming home tomorrow, from a school trip to France and Italy. We never had trips like that when I was in school. My big trip was by train from Windsor, Ontario to Stratford, Ontario to see a play. It was a day trip. Of course the kids have to spend a lot of time fundraising as a group. I saved all my recyclables for her. 

I guess I can't finish this off until I put a picture of dear Aslan..........

I was trying to read......

This is all for now.  It only took me a couple of weeks to finish this up.
Hope everyone is ready for some nice weather.
Have a good one.
