Yep! It's A Happy Wednesday!

I took my girl for a spin around the neighborhood to get a breath of fresh air.....I LOVE some of these houses. This one is owned by a landscape architect. I drive by it regularly to admire it. It's beautiful during any season, but spring is starting to peek through here in the NW, so it's especially lovely....



Even the driveway is beautiful!


I took this picture because the garage was so pretty. It was prettier in person!


They have a lovely view of Puget Sound..........ahhhhhhhh.......just dreaming.......oh how I wish.....


What a darling little cottage!


It looks like they just planted to posies along the walk........ :-)


I am loving the porch on this old girl......isn't the retaining wall great??



Thanks so much for your visit........

Please continue to pray for my girl. She's having lots of pain. We'll be taking her to the doctor tomorrow. We had to take the pup to the vet today. She has a gimpy leg too....I think it's sympathy pains!

My little grandson was in the newspaper today for his artwork! They'll be making a poster of the three top winners of the EARTH day competition (scroll down to see his entry) and posting them in the libraries and the zoo! He's a STAR!

Grateful hugs and blessings!
Spencer

  2. You are making me 'homesick' for WA ST, never thought I'd say that. Love the homes. And, the sky is blue?!

    Bravo, you should be very proud of your grandson. What paper will he be in ... we can all view it online, if you post where to look.

    Hope everyone gets to feeling better soon.
    Have a beautiful day & ty for sharing ~

  3. Those are such neat houses. There must be more prosperity in WA than VT. Everything is just shabby here. Loved them!

  10. Happy Day, Spencer.
    Loved the little home tour.
    Prayers for you daughter. Hope all went well.
    Congrats for artist grandson. All the animals on the YES! side are so cuddly cute my favorite is the duck. Gold Star Art!

    I finally found a heart rock. Not in the shape but one with a heart carved into it, by the hand of God. I posted about it today with a picture. Do you like it! The mystery of the story (read my post) was solved by Dixie of French Lique.

  15. I am thrilled that Dodi is doing well, although I know there is pain and a long recovery. I know she is feeling incredibly blessed to have you there to take care of her . . . and I know you are feeling the same! (It's a mama-thing, isn't it! Smiles! And I know you are enjoying your little man, as well.)

    Despite the pain, I know (from experience!) that getting her out for that "breath of fresh air" was wonderful for her! What a thoughtful mama she has!

    I will continue to pray for blessings to rain down on your time together, as well as Dodi's continued healing. (Thank you for asking about my own recovery in your last E-mail -- it is going well, and I just completed my first week back at work. Wouldn't you know that I returned during state testing, so I got to spend each day just observing my students, with my leg propped up on a chair! And no lesson plans! It was a great way to ease back into the groove of the classroom. God is good, huh!)

    Many prayers and much affection,
    St. Michael's Wife, Pamm
