I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day...I received a beautiful single rose from my son Will and he told me, "The rest is from Dad." So I waited patiently...
It was a sort of Easter egg hunt but with flowers!!! I waited a while, and then decided to go fill up my tea pot and found the lovely tulips on the kitchen table...I moved them so I could see them better...aren't they lovely??
I went back to admiring the tulips and roses for awhile...
Then I found this trio of pretty roses at my desk...
Again, went back to admiring the tulips and making sure my Delft blue was close by...
Then I found these roses and mums on the wooden chest by the garage door! I moved them to the alcove next to the front door...I thought for sure I was done!
Then this sweet heart-shaped arrangement of mums and roses appeared on the stairs!!!
I couldn't believe all the beautiful flowers!!! Thank you my Frank and how lucky we are to have Will who works at Costco and is so talented at flower arranging!!!
Our 24th Anniversary and Kara's birthday were celebrated in Carmel last weekend...the weather was glorious and much warmer than predicted which made going to the doggy beach heavenly. Maggi our almost ten year old beagle had never been to the beach before, but she had a fun time and we had fun watching her reactions!
She was not too keen about the water, but found it quite amusing to be walking on the sand and being around so many other dogs.
Frank had fun also as he carried the towels in case Maggi got cold from being wet, but it was so sunny and warm as she strolled along the beach and dried up.
Her first taste of beach life!! I don't know about this, she says!!
But Maggi had a great day...even met another Beagle dog and they looked at each other as if they knew one another...it was so cute!
We had a work out too walking along the beach...I wish we could do this everyday!
When we got back to our hotel, they had the patio fire place burning for their wine tasting hour...our timing was pretty good!
Maggi, on the other hand, was sacked out from her super beach walk...tired, happy puppy!
The sunset was beautiful as we sat sipping our wine from our little balcony...totally glowing!!
The weekend went so fast! I hope we can go back to Carmel again soon!!
I'm an almost 56 year old woman. I'm mother of three almost grown up kids, Will, 24, Kara, 22, and Peter, 20. I've been married for over 24 years to Frank.
I love to do creative things like needlework, cross stitch in particular, knitting and crocheting.
