spring

is it actually almost here? i took this photo this morning in my parents' backyard (i can finally post here as they now have high speed internet!). the butterfly was not shy at all. of course, we had to come in quickly as the pollen here is horrible. when we came in the house, our shoes had a layer of yellow pollen on them. yuck! not to mention what it does to the sinuses. but, it really is worth it to see a little life outside.

we came down to visit with grandma for a few days, however, yesterday afternoon she was admitted to the hospital for some monitoring and tests. we have to take turns visiting, as the kids cannot go into the hospital. in her sweet way while we were getting her ready to go to the hospital, as she was putting on her glasses, i said, "yes, make sure you get your glasses on so you can see how pretty i am." (by the way, i don't think that highly of my looks, i just wanted to cheer her up) her reply was, "i don't have to have my glasses on to know how pretty you are." thank you grandma. this week has been hard as last week we got good news that her blood levels are holding up well, but yesterday they had dropped a bit. about the time i feel like i am dealing with all of this very well, i have a day like yesterday, where all i can do is cry. i guess that is to be expected, right?

well, so you don't decided to stop visiting here due to sad posts...i do have a bit of good news. there is a great giveway here at dana's. i hesistate to tell you about it, because i want to win. but it is so great it has to be shared.

oh, and i finished the easter dress. i am in love with it. seriously. i wanted to get some good shots of lucy in it outside today, but the pollen prevented us.

this picture is amazing and a very fitting harbinger of spring - here it's supposed to snow on the first day of spring, how anti-climatic.
