Back to normal?

Ok, I admit, I have been a little lax about updating this and my other page the last couple of weeks. But there has been alot going on! I am now a Grandma! Our first grandson was born August 16th. So we have been back and forth to see him and his parents. And to help get them settled in.
For some silly reason I volunteered to make a baby quilt for one of the guys that works for my husband, & his wife! They are expecting a baby girl any day now. And of course I had to do a quilt for Zachary! So now both of them are finished and I can get back into my "normal" routine. Whatever normal is! LOL
Oh, I almost forgot, we also have a new addition at our house. A little yellow kitten showed up on the patio last week..........so now we are back to having 3 cats in the house. I can kind of ignore adult cats when they show up, our neighbor has quite a few barn cats so they are probably his just passing through. But when it is a little kitten.......so our daughter adopted the kitten. Her name is Tiger Lily, Lily for short. She is a bundle of energy! So far the other two cats are tolerating her, no fights, growling or hissing, well maybe a little hissing from Annie, but at least it isn't the really nasty sounding hissing!
Here are a few pics:

a triangle of cats!

I am just a bundle of energy!

Time to get houses ready!

I was reading an article on bluebirds the other day and it said they can start looking for a place to nest as early as March. Uhoh, it is March and we saw a pair of bluebirds in the yard the other day! There are two houses that are still up, but I took two down to repair over the winter and another one was knocked down when they were hauling the pine trees through the gate last fall....so I better get busy!! Now I am at the point I get to every spring......buy wood and make the houses myself.......or just buy them already made. I really don't know that making them myself is any cheaper.....it certainly is not quicker. Maybe I will split the difference and purchase two and make two......
I will post pics later today.

Spring

Wow, the weather was so nice here yesterday! I don't know for sure what the high was, but we had windows and doors open to the breeze! It was great to air out the house after winter, even though being February I know it isn't over. It is amazing how great sunshine and a semi-warm breeze can make you feel! Plus I fired some glass in the kiln without having to mess with the pellet stove! The animals liked it too - the cats were going from window to window enjoying the breeze! Although the dog wasn't too sure about the mud in the yard, she still wanted to play ball all afternoon! She doesn't mind sliding in the snow and slush, but doesn't like the mud or the cleaning that comes after. Neither do I!
We have received numerous seed catalogs in the mail the last few weeks. I love looking through them and planning what to plant when the time finally gets here! Of course I always want to plant alot more than I will, if common sense prevails, if not, well then I am gonna have one heck of a garden to take care of!

Holidays

Whew, I am actually kind of glad the holidays are over! I even got all of the decorations put away! Christmas was great! I got all of the truck parts that were on Doug's list - you know how hard it is to wrap a bumper?! I gave up trying to wrap it so he wouldn't know what it was! I got a new kindle - really cool! Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, Graphite, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology

And a certificate for a Hot Air Balloon ride!!! Woo Hoo! It is from Fly Ohio Ballooning http://flyohioballooning.com/  I think I am going to wait for warm weather though! I am sure I will have LOTS of pictures when I go!
We are all going to try to eat better & excercise more this year.........Doug was on the treadmill yesterday, I was on this morning, but Bekah has yet to get on....lol We will see how long we last this year!
Here is a video clip of Lexi "protecting" us from the many cardboard boxes on Christmas -

 She has always had a thing for boxes!
Now that all of the holiday baking and gift making are done hopefully I can concentrate on my glass/bottle art & my online store! Spring will be here before we know it, so I gotta get busy making more hanging candle holders!
