You can always tell when spring arrives as the comments and readers drop off immediately. I think we are all outside trying to enjoy the spring sunshine but that has eluded us here in the northeast so far. It has been raining buckets and is scheduled to rain all week with just some chances of the sun peaking out for a few minutes here and there. No big flooding problems, just some minor roads with spots washed out and a few basements with some water in them. Up here on the hill we don’t have those problems for which I am grateful.
We didn’t bring the boys home due to all the rain. At the stable they can at least be out in the inside arena for some exercise but here they would have to stay in their stalls until things dried up a bit. They don’t mind the rain in the warm weather but when it’s only 38* in the mornings that is just too cold for them to be out in it. Plus with still having a pretty heavy coat from the winter it would not be good for them to get that wet as it would take forever to dry out. So we are hoping for this coming weekend.
We had our fundraiser for the Hemophilia Foundation on Saturday night. We have friends whose grandson has a very serious case of hemophilia and his parents have started the Foundation of Maine to help raise money for research. It was a family night with lots of kiddoes having a blast with glow sticks, clowns making balloon animals and hats, games, dancing, all kinds of yummy food, a silent auction and a twist contest for all ages.
I remember the twist, it was all the rage when I was a youngster. Who would think that 50 years later it would make me so lame and sore that I needed to go to my chiropractor?!! Sigh…….
Here is ‘Scooter’ with his pet skunk.
My niece Ashley and our friends grandson.
Cousin K with his glow light glasses and balloon hat.
I think we were doing The YMCA in this shot.
Me and my niece Ana who just graduated from University of Maine last week.
Here is our friends grandson with all the cash raised on the Twist dance. He is such a sweetie! With research hopefully a cure will be found soon!
The reason for the school bus graphic at the beginning is because my grand kids are here with us this week as Son and DIL are at a conference out of town. Our house is much busier with them here as you can well imagine! Thankfully DIL wrote out a very good schedule for all of their activities and who eats hot lunch on what day and who wants cold lunch. They have lots of activities such as chorus, baseball, a play on Wed. night, guitar etc etc The Hubs and I have been busy! :O) They are due to get home soon so I guess I should get a snack ready. I have been bringing their cat over to spend some time with them each day and she is ready to move in but I’m sure she would move out just as quickly when her two kids go home! :o)
