Taking It Easy

Thanks again for another fun party. My, my, Hallmark may be calling you soon. I saw so many wonderful images!  


As you can see below (using an app for this posting), we're lying low around here. Perhaps it is the wild swing in the weather for half the family is ill with some bug or other. The grands have had colds and now John has one, too. It's a rare day that he isn't up and at'em, but this is that day. 

Closing comments so you may scoot off to your garden or other pursuits. I hope to visit you between call bells. ;>

Trying Something New~April Note Card Party

Yes, I am so excited about trying something new that I nearly forgot to add the formerly used photo. 

Maybe I'll try it again and get good at it. Currently, it's something of a red hot mess. I think that you can best tell what I did in the "Thinking of You" card where you can see the horizon line. I didn't like that look and so my experiments took me to blotting that line, which is how I wound up with shadows and blotches and a generally muddled look. Ahhhh...the joy of trying something new.

Looking forward to seeing your note cards this evening!

P.S. If you visit the directions page *here,* you will find new buttons added at the bottom. Perhaps there is finally something for everyone.

Brooks, Schools, Pinwheels

Though I tried repeatedly to get the code for button making to work, I failed. After three hours, something has got to be more important. Picking fluff from a cotton ball would be more important. So, if you'd like a new Note Card Party button, feel free to snag this the old-fashioned way. You may link to the home page here or you may link to the *directions page.* Thank you so much for linking; it is much appreciated. 

Tomorrow Mr. Linky will be up between 2 and 2:30. After this post is published, I'm going to start having some fun with this month's Note Card Party. I have my props all gathered. It will be different anyway.


This is the final picture showing snow-melt progress in just two short weeks. I can't believe that two weeks ago, it looked this way:

And now?

And, though that is bad, it is a huge improvement. The burlap has been removed from the rosebushes and, when the forsythia blooms, I shall be pruning them. The azalea bush needs trimming even before it blooms because of broken branches. It'll be looking good in a month. I hope. You will be happy to know that I am sparing you the weekly installments henceforth. ☺

Here's a photo taken this morning  showing the little brook that winds behind the house. It passes through a culvert under the road and into the river. That's why it looks as if I'm standing in the brook.


The little red schoolhouse on the hill. Soon, it will be invisible from this vantage point.

Snow plow damage. It turned this sign into a pinwheel.

Well, that's it for today. See you tomorrow!
