And I thought it was spring!

I awoke to the beautiful sunshine this morning.
I sat down to watch the news and drink
my morning cup of coffee.
And what do I hear from the weather girl
but that rotten word

I couldn't believe my ears.

I am not excited about this news.

So far - No Snow!  YEA!

After work, John decided to take a few
 new pictures of me.  
The one I have up is too old!
I think it was taken this past summer.

So here I am - as of today!


 So I will keep my fingers crossed that we 
do NOT get any snow!

I do not want to get out my winter shoes again!

Count down update:
Diane will be here in 10 days!!

The Count Down Begins


She will be home
in 11 days!

I can't wait!!!!

Monday after a GREAT Weekend

Today is Monday and I
am still basking in the radiance
of the beautiful weekend.

We had bits of everything!
70 degree days
Just a few fluffy clouds
and time with my 

Who could ask for more?

Even my Monday was great!
I think everyone was still feeling
great after such a wonderful weekend.

Everyone at work was polite
and smiling at eachother.
I don't even remember hearing a harsh word.

I will keep my fingers crossed
that it lasts.
In my heart and within
all those that I work with.

Saturday, April 17, 2010


I thought that Spring was here.
This morning we woke to snow.
It was only a few inches, but it covered all
the beautiful green of the grass.

I guess I will have to get my winter shoes back out!

I have been thinking a lot about my best friend
Diane this past week and missing her.
She goes to Florida for 5 - 6 months every winter.
This year it feels like she has been gone
for a year already.
I can't wait for May so she will
be close by!

I asked Diane for a picture so that I could post it
for the family to see, but she said for me to
wait till she gets home and we would have one
taken together.  
I have never been known for my patience, so
I decided to copy one from her facebook

So here she is - my BFF - Diane A.

Can you tell where she goes every winter?

Hope to see you soon!!!!

Beautiful Movie

We just watched a BEAUTIFUL
"Feel Good" movie!!!
Waltzing Anna
I love this movie! 

The unscrupulous Dr. Charlie Keegan is a partner in a 
New York City medical practice that thrives on the 
bureaucracy of the insurance system and naiveté of 
its elderly patients. However, whenever caught, 
Charlie's lawyer is unable to prevent the medical 
board from reprimanding him. For six months, he is 
forced to work in an upstate nursing home--Shady Pines. 
Charlie wanted to do his time and get out. Instead, his 
new patients and an unexpected romance with the 
compassionate nurse Jill, transform him into a
sympathetic man who fights for the care and 
protection of the people he once neglected.

If you get a chance to see this - DO!!
This movie is good for the soul.

Looking at pictures

I have been looking through pictures and found this one
of John and me during our last "alone" vacation. 
We went to New Hampshire for a week.

If I remember correctly it was the fall of 2007.  It is hard to 
believe that time passes so quickly.  I will have to start
planning another vacation for the two of us soon!

Places I would like to visit for a long weekend:

  1. Prince Edward Island
  2. Salem, Mass
  3. Boston
  4. A cabin in the Maine Mountains
  5. hmmm,  I will have to think of a few more places

This next picture that I found is of our dog Sassy.
She is so cute in this picture.
It was also taken in the fall of 2007 on the same trip to New Hampshire.
Sassy loved going hiking with John and I.
We rented a cabin in the mountains and stayed a week - we had so much fun.

Beautiful Morning

Oh what a beautiful morning
Oh what a beautiful day
I've got a beautiful feeling
Everything's going my way......

Today was in the high 70's 
I was actually able to wear pretty sandals.
Do I live in Maine?  In the 12 years that I have lived
in Maine, I have NEVER worn sandals on April 1.


(in this picture:  my wonderful Husband - John and Dixie - the cat)
***Note No Snow***

(This is my cute nephew - Justin)

(This is what the front of our home looked like on April 1, 2009)


Tomorrow's forecast.......
Same As Today!

I am wearing my sandals again tomorrow!
