Not a Great Week for Me!!!

I had one of the worst weeks of my life!  I had norovirus all week and only now am I feeling better and more human again!  I never, ever wish that virus on anyone.  It isn't the flu, so the flu shot doesn't work for this virus.  I never have the flu shot anyway, but someone had asked me if I had a flu shot.  This is a "stomach bug".  It is like a super virus.

I started eating again yesterday after not having anything since Monday night.  Today I actually got dressed and walked around outside.  That was more than I had done all week!

All the plants outside are coming alive!!  Spring has sprung in Charlotte/Mint Hill!  All my daffodils look so wonderful out in the front garden.  I love this time of year!!

Hope everyone had a great week and is having a great weekend!

Lovely Weekend!!!

What a great weekend here in Mint Hill!  The weather is just wonderful.  It hit over 71 today.  I had a really wonderful pedicure and then met my hubby for lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse.  Then we went and got John some new glasses.  Then we headed over to the bird store and bought a wren house and a bluebird box.  We came home and then hung them on the pine trees in the backyard.  I hope the birds move in soon!  Here are some photos I took today:


The beautiful blue Carolina sky through the pencil pines in my backyard.  So beautiful!

 Bluebird box we hung on the pine tree today.

Daffodils in the front and side yard.


Tulips coming up in the front garden
Wren house we hung in the backyard.

The owner of the yarn shop I go to dyed these skeins for my.  The one is a lovely lime green and the other is eggplant color.

What a gorgeous day!  I hope tomorrow is beautiful too!  Spring needs to come now!

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
