Jennifer,that could be fun! what size of clothing? I have a whole bunch of clothing from when I was smaller sized *sigh* and a few pricey handbags to share. I am just getting tough with the clutter! Too much stuff/too little space!

I'm going to sit here and enjoy everyone's company while I TRY to teach myself to crochet...

Good for you Annika! Crocheting, once you get the hang of it, is very relaxing.

I love to crochet too. Very relaxing. I brought Pomegranate Black Tea. MMMMmmm very different.

I'll share the Peppermint pillows my baby girl picked out for me while shopping with her daddy. She had allowance money to spend. LOL

Have a blessed day.

Yes, that blueberry coffee has a definite taste of blueberry and smells so good while brewing.

Well we set some eggs today in our homemade incubator. Right now there are nine in there, we will put four or five more in tomorrow, then that will be all. These are from our own chickens, so will be fun to see if we get some chicks. I used to hatch ducks and quail in the classroom, but it has been several years since we tried any home hatching. Our rooster is a Rhode Island Red, we have two rhody hens and the rest are aracaunas.

Yes it is a little cool on the porch tonight, thanks for bringing along a few light afgans. I hope some of you are seeing some stars, it is cloudy here.

Good evening ladies, It is a rainy/snowy day here and we are having trouble with rivers and ice jams. I had to drive way out of my way to get home from work today. I am glad to get home safely and have tomorrow off. I am so ready for spring. I am ready to sit down and have a cup of tea with yall.

Good morning! The rains have started here, so am looking forward to the end of the snow in our yard and gardens. So far I see four clumps of snowdrops getting ready to bloom. I have ten clumps in that garden. I haven't checked the crocus yet, as they are still under snow.

Did you see those robins and red winged blackbirds? They are back!!!
I am so glad to see them. The red winged blackbirds nest in the cattails around the pond every year.

I made some shamrock sugar cookies and frosted them with green. Enjoy some as we chat. Tea or coffee---your pleasure.

Oh Marcie, We have robins all around and red wings that live in the cattails in the marsh beside our little bend of Paradise Creek! I can't wait for the frogs to wake up and start in with their nightsong! Its still quite chilly here so I'm bringing a light quilt to the porch...how about some almond-vanilla coffee?

Almond-vanilla coffee, please. I made yogurt last night and it turned out just yummy. I can be bring the last of my granola, the yogurt and some honey to pass, too. My thyme is greening up so I think I'll make some herb butter later...I can never wait to taste some fresh "green" in the spring.

Well I will have some tea but no cookies for my breakfast is still with me and I do need to lose weight. House chores they never end. It is raining here today so that is my first job then some sewing making place mats, and booties for Christmas gifts. Then I still have to pull all the tacks and staples out of a sofa that I am going to have recovered what a job. I found this Victorian sofa on the dump in 1993. Had it all these years and now I am working on it had to stop working it is a big job. My husband says I can buy one cheaper then fixing this one. Well my heart is set on this one so I will keep you all posted. If you would like Lilly

Annika, that almond-vanilla coffee sounds very tasty. I would enjoy a cup while we chat. I brought along an afgan to work on as we chat.
twill keep my hands busy so I don't eat too many treats.
We are waiting to hear the peepers down in the woods, the other side of the pond. Of course it would be great to hear the frog chorus on the pond, too. But that will be awhile yet as the ice is not off the pond.
New babies in the barn, yep this is the time for it and they are so darn cute!
Have a great weekend!

Oh Deborah, I love making lavender shortbread! I haven't made any in ages. Just a bit of that will hit the spot...I just made a cup of lotus tea!.
The robins are singin' and singin' and the weather guys say we could actually get a bit of snow! BRRRR...glad I brought my warm shawl!
I am taking a break from radically de-cluttering to wish all of you a sweet and sunny weekend, even if the sunshine is only in your hearts We are setting the clocks for ward this weekend so we'll have an extra hour of sunshine when it comes. THINK SPRING!!!!!

I have a long week at school. Now it's weekend, so I can sort of relax. Tomorrow is a forensics meet, then I babysit, then Sunday is church and basketball workout. So much for a relaxing weekend:( But imagining being with all of you ladies just talking and doing crafts is relaxing.

Sunshine in our hearts, love that phrase!! It is what I have here today, we are getting a soaking.

It will be an indoor day. Lots to do though. When I get the chores done, I'll join you for a chat and rock a bit.
