So Happy To See Spring

Good morning and come on in. It is going to be another beautiful day here. Yesterday was spectacular. I actually had the doors open and it was just wonderful. Of course the coffee is on and again today it is Cracker Barrel. Curt loves it, so I tried it and I like it too. It is more expensive than DD but you do get a full pound. If there is a CB near you try it. I still love my Kona Help yourself to a piece of Strawberry cake too. It is quite yummy if I have to say so, there is no one else to say it)
This has been a busy week here. We got home late Monday, I had a dermatologist appointment early Tuesday. She removed another suspicious place. (You may remember I have had several removed, even a skin graft on my nose last summer) This was the only place and I felt pretty good when I left there. Had to go get Dasko at doggy camp(an hour each way). Came home and went to the grocery. Had my card group on Wednesday night and went to Dominoes on Thursday. I had missed the last 2/3 weeks because of being gone and I wanted to go.(lost badly)lol I went to a girls night out Thursday night and had friends for dinner Friday night. A wonderful week spent with people I enjoy being with. God has blessed me with so many different friends and I am grateful.Each one has blessed my life. I am home for a while until I go to Sandi's, but the beach is
Today is work day outside here. I have scraped some of the back porch and am going to paint it Monday. I am going to get some flowers planted in some containers to give this place some curb appeal Doesn't it sound like a fun day?
I have done a bit of tweaking after removing my Easter. This, however is still on my table.
I am going to leave it until May.
Mother told me she wanted a bit of color near her.
I have taken most of my boxes out and stored them. I just had to keep one in here.
Don't know if I have ever shared my floors. One of the best FB decorating group, is (in my opinion) Decorating With Antiques. They were asking to see  pictures of floors, so I thought I would share mine. These are just perfect for me and so EASY to take care of. These are through out the house except in the little bedroom. They are a narrower width. I have to admit my rottweilers have done most of the
This is a picture of my old betty lamp. I have had this many years and always forget to show it. I will leave you with just a few of my favorite things.
The Spinner.
Some of my firkins and my dry sink.
Well I am so happy you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS:Please continue your prayers for Tamra. She is doing well and has the most wonderful outlook. Nothing is slowing this girl down. Here is a picture, so you can see who you are praying for.
 It seems to me when these girls lose their hair, they just become more beautiful. BTW her Daddy shaved his too.(He didn't become more beautiful)lol Just kidding Randy.This is her Mother with her. They so appreciate all of your prayers for their family.
PSS: Also some in blogland are experiencing some hard times, too right now. lets remember them.
PSSS: Again remember the Clinton Tn Antique festival the 4th of May. You won't be sorry you came
