Sunshine and Warmth!

On Tuesday I got up and got dressed and it was such a beautiful day.  The sun was shining, the temps were near 60 degrees!  I went to St. Louis and Alton shopping with Daddy Tom, Momma Rosie and my Aunt Louis.  We always have a great time and it’s great to get out of the house!!  We always laugh and laugh.  I know now where I get my craziness from .. it’s apart of my gene pool on the Jackson side!  We went shopping and as always daddy takes us all out to lunch.  Tuesday’s treat was Ponderosa!  OH it’s so good and the best part is daddy Tom gets cake and doesn’t want his icing so I get to eat it!  Smile 

Later that night I heard sirens and saw the lights and I went outside to look and it appeared to be at my Aunt Barb’s .. Please remember her in pray as she is on life support and not doing very good. 

Wednesday was another beautiful day and with the sun shining I spent as much time as I could outside.  I even got all the snow and ice cleaned off my back patio.  It’s been months since it’s been that clean from snow and ice!  Later in the afternoon Daddy and Mommy showed up to pick me up and we went to visit Aunt Louis.  Had a great visit and that evening my precious jewels came to spend the night .. so I got a double treat! 

Thursday .. wow the temps went really high with a high of 68 degrees!  It almost feels like summer!  I had to get up early and get the grand kids ready for school and drop them off before I could start my day.  I rode to Jacksonville with Daddy and Mommy and we had a great day.  Found a new thrift store called the Attic and got me some good deals.  I needed some pillow cases really badly and they had em for a .25 cents! 

On our way home we stopped at Aunt Louis and visited and Aunt Pearl was there so it was icing on the cake to get to see her.  I got some more bad news .. my brother in law passed away yesterday.  RIP Rusty Blackburn .. he had been very sick and in lots of pain for sometime and his wish finally came true.  He is now in heaven with his beloved wife (my sister) Rosemary who passed away 2 years ago this coming March.  It seems that with every good thing in my life there is always a bad thing right behind it. 

Later in the evening the weather took a turn for the worse and the winds picked up and the electric kept going on and off.  Wow, Mr Wind sounds like he is coming through the walls.  There are tornado warnings and wind adversary’s everywhere .. it’s a good night to just curl up on the couch and snuggle with my babies.  none of them are enjoying the sound of the wind.  One of the shutters on the outside of house is just a banging and I’ve noticed several shingles in the yard Sad smile  Looks like this spring I’m gonna have to find someone to come replace those missing shingles.

I enjoyed the warm weather while it lasted and it gave me a taste of spring that I am so looking forward too.  But it appears Mr. Winter is not ready to leave and it’s going to continue to get colder with temps back in the single digits next week!

I will just take what life has to offer and when it’s lemons .. I will just make lemon aide!! Smile
