Happy Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day and got plenty of candy. Hubby got me a card, candy and flowers! It's been really really cold here today, with snow still on the ground. They are calling for more tonight. I never thought I would say this but I'm ready for spring. I've always been a winter person, but it has snowed so much this year and it's been about too cold to do anything. I've added a picture of my flowers. Well, at least it smells like Spring inside my house anyway!!!

Outdoor Wednesday

Today I am participating in Outdoor Wednesday with Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. You should visit when you get a chance to see everyone's Outdoor Wednesday pics. I was going to show pictures of the 2nd major snowfall of the winter, but it looks like everyone else was hit just as hard as we were!! Instead I have just a few shots of a rock quarry near our home. Me and Hubby were, for some reason, I don't know why, talking about rock quarries the other day, and I told him of one close by that we used to go to when we were in high school. I don't know why we used to go up there, probably because there were signs that said No Trespassing. (We were rebels like that, ya know. LOL) So last Saturday, we took a drive up there, if nothing else, just to see if I could still find it! I haven't been there in probably 30 years and guess what? It's still there! Of course Hubby said, well where did you think a giant hole in the ground would have gone? Well I was thinking maybe overgrown and filled in or something. Also, the No Trespassing signs are still there! I wish I would have taken a pic of them also. Someone has built a house right beside of it and the owner was standing out on the porch watching us. We were waiting on him to call the police so I took two quick pics and left. They are not very good but anyway you kinda get the picture!

Word Wall

I ran across these wonderful word walls at Wal-Mart and guess what? They were only $9.99!! I have seen them in Kohl's and other stores for $20.00 and up. I put this one in my kitchen because we just painted it and I still want to repaint the other rooms in the house. Trust me, next time we're hiring somebody....even Hubby agreed. It took us forever just to paint the kitchen and I "NEVER" want to do that again! We built our house 13 years ago and I think the paint colors could use some changing (against Hubby's will), but hey, whatever makes us happy, right?
