It's St. Lucia!! Isn't it gorgeous?! I'm thankful to Vicki, from the blog 2 Bags Full, that we have St. Lucia to look at today! Her and the Gardener and some friends went on a cruise. St. Lucia was one of their stops. She took some wonderful photos of the trip. You can go along to that sunny place by checking out the blog post HERE!
I mean....who wouldn't want to be in St. Lucia these days?! Especially ME!
Blue skies, calm seas, relaxation.....and not an ounce of snow in sight!
I woke up yesterday to this!
Can you see it?! Snow all over the backyard! Even the trees were laden with it...A-G-A-I-N!!! It's enough to make you dream of St. Lucia, or somewhere...anywhere...where there's some sun!...But wait!
This morning I "DO" have sunny skies...in my backyard!! And there's hardly any snow around at all!!!! What is going on?!!! It's craziness...this weather!! Yesterday it snowed the whole first part of the morning. It didn't stick much on the roads around here though. I know the drivers were happy about that! But the backyard...was covered!
But then this morning.....CLEAR!
It's sunny and the robins are hoping around, having a great old time! O_0 Did I miss something?! Did I go down a rabbit hole or something?! If you've ever read a version of Alice in Wonderland you'd know what I mean...Speaking of which, you have to check out the sketch that became a painted scene for her kid's school, over on the blog We Blog Artists, when you have a minute.
It started out looking like this (which is pretty cool all by itself!)...
...but you should see what it progressed to!!! (1.) HERE...(2.) HERE...(3.) HERE...and step three will 'knock your socks off'!! (4.) HERE! So colorful...and huge!!
Now, back to my story, If I DID go down a rabbit hole, it's okay this morning...because I ended up back home, looking out my window at a snow-less backyard! :-)
My patio will be ready for some barbecuing soon...after we get a bigger grill! LOL
The weather has been pure Craziness this season!!! Hopefully the Spring and summer won't be that topsy turvy!...Speaking of topsy turvy, I decided what the Giveaway is going to be...
...No! Not the man holding the blanket!...^_^...but the warm blanket itself!!...I know, I know! It's got some wild colors in it. Red, white, purple, brown, yellow, green, etc...But what do you expect from a recycled 'Wuglyee'?!! ^_^ It's got all kinds of leftover yarns! It measures approx. 50 1/2 inches (126cm) wide and 52 inches (132cm) long.
And because I can't take the rolling rejection of my "baby", the rules for this Giveaway are going to be a little different than in times past. This time, when you make your comment below, you have to say: "ENTER ME" in your comment, and let me know if you're following the blog. (I don't want to be in the position of trying to force my poor ugly baby on some unwanted babysitter! LOL)
The drawing will be on April 15, 2011...Until then you can make a comment with your "ENTER ME" in it every day...one comment a day.
Okay, now that I have sunny skies to look at, I'm off to look at them! :-) And do some letter-writing, make some phone calls, do a little crocheting,...you know BE ME!! ^_^ You BE YOU today! Have a good day...and a good weekend! By the way, what are you doing this weekend?!
Lollygagging, having fun;
Makes working up to Friday
worth the paperwork you've done.
Your job, all week, came first,
but now it's time for a little jaunt;
or to lay around the house
and just do nothing, if you want!
Weekend with some friends,
or simply find some things to do;
Because every Monday will be back
and you'll need something to look forward to!
