happy birthday tony neroni jr!


Here I am!  been busy this week I guess..  doing what?  Ive no clue!    thankful its friday.  I had yesterday off to take care of some things, that I didnt even end up doing.  But we did celebrate little Tonys birthday last night with a taco party!  Believe it or not.. I have another whooper of a cold.  So taking yesterday off worked out for me as I actually took a nap.. remember... I dont nap.. ever.  Supposed to be on call this weekend, but Im going to try to get someone to switch with me because.. while I could handle it if it were just a cold.. I have absolutely NO VOICE!  The cats cant even hear me calling them!  seriously!

Do you like the dolly picture above?  the one dressed in blue arrived here this week from our friend Deb Messner @ cozy blanket blogspot!  I love her.  she is the sweetest doll.. she has a couple minor issues, as in she has a little odor to her, neither Deb nor I can figure out what it is, but its not that noticable unless youre holding her up to your nose.   The other odd little thing about her is she has the shortest arms ever.  so much so that I was calling her flipper! lol!  poor little thing.  I should not be making fun of her short comings...  LOL!   but she sure looks sweet sitting with my Jasmine  and they both are wearing party hats in honor of Little Tony's birthday! lol!!  (thank you btw Deb.. I really do love her!)


 And so, as I mentioned above we celebrated my son Tonys birthday last night.  I cant believe he is 28 years old.. my kids are getting old I swear!  where does the time go?  he was just a baby.. and now he has two babies of his own!  doesnt he look like Violet in this picture?    sometimes I look at her and have flashbacks!  Happy Birthday little Tony!!  


I made german choc cake with german choc coconut and pecan frosting..  and... since I was dying for choc cake with choc frosting and since I was pretty sure that Torry wouldnt eat the coconut frosting... I made choc cupcakes too!   Needless to say that I sent a lot of cake home with the kids.  (that cake doesnt look so appetizing in this picture!)  


IN other news.. nothing really.  Ive just been playing with birds and bird nests... tweaking my springy decorations.  The weather has been pretty crappy..   mother nature is just taking her time and its been cold.. and it snowed and hailed on wednesday night.    I  simply can not wait for warm beachy days!  Do you think they will come?   supposed to be sunny this weekend.. but not warm..  but I'll take the sunshine.  now if I just felt good enough to go out and do something in it.   hush!  I know youre thinking.. "shes had a lot of colds this year..."  I dont want to hear it! lol!  and yes its true! 


I need to get off of the computer and go take care of the dishes from last night.  I was too tired to do so last night..  but I sure dont want to come home to them later.. so off I go! 
have a great day my bloggy friends! 

Happy Day!

Hello sunday morning

 Good morning!   thankfully, I have the whole day before me, basically unplanned.   starting out with lots of tea and I had a great big peanut donut...  I was going to have oatmeal.. but something happened....  and suddenly there was a donut right there.. beside my teacup..   and how could I ignore that sweet little thing.. just begging to share itself with me.  LOL!  
so really no set plans for today.  I have a LOT of bears to work on  and I bought this coloring book.. have you seen these?  a lot of our artsy fartsy on line friends have been buying them.  I saw this at Michaels and couldnt pass it up.  and Ive only worked on this back page so far.. but it is addictive and fun..   Remember how we liked to color when we were kids?   this is way better!  lol!  Im going to pick up some gel pens today too. Ive been using some fine tipped markers and colored pencils so far.    and my pencil sharpener broke.. so I'll need to pick up one of those today too.
(Some of those flowers look like pot leaves!  not that I know from experience or anything! LOL!  and if I did know, I certainly wouldnt admit that here! )
Hmmm.. I guess it sounds like Im going shopping at some point.   maybe just to walmart.   Anything else takes up the day.. an hour ride to rochester or buffalo.   I also thought about digging the rake out and doing some raking around the house.  but..  Tony said he saw a big snake by my fairy garden yesterday..  Really?   You want to know whats funny about that?  Yesterday morning Bethany and I were at the salon, me getting my hair cut and her getting a pedicure.  and we had everyone there talking about snakes and worms..  lol!    And I had just said that Ive only seen them in our yard a few times in the 30 years we've lived here.   Bethany is terrified or them.  they dont usually bother me.   But I dont like to be startled by them.  
 Also thinking about cooking out this afternoon.. what sounds good?  Maybe I should invite the kids over for hotdogs and hamburgers.   hmmm..   gotta think on this.    but for how.. I really need to get dressed and clean up the house a bit then I guess I shall run to the store!   
(♪♫do you know the mushroom man?)
Have a Happy Springy Day!

just another thursday morning!


 Morning bloggy pies!  Happy thursday!   I was up early this morning , out of bed at 4:45, but wide awake probably around 3:30.  I tried to go back to sleep, but couldn't!  I will be tired later for sure.  oh well.. anyways, so I played in my craft room and made muffins.  I made this little teeny tiny basket probably 8 years or more ago and its been hanging near my computer.  its supposed to be a necklace, but I don't think I ever wore it as such.  This morning it caught my eye and I decided to play around with it and it turned out so cute!  That tiny bear was also one of the first tiny bears I ever made and is one of my favorites. The baby doll has no arms or legs!  shes only about an  inch and a half long.  I think she is sweet.  Theres a doll show coming up on may 9th.  I always love going and I always look for the teeny tiny things!  probably no surprise there huh!


Im just so happy that spring has finally arrived..  no snow.. no cold.  I was so very tired of all of that!  And Im so excited for sunshine and warmer temps.  still very early spring here, no leaves on the trees or anything.  though there are crocuses up in the back yard.  I picked three the other day, but they dont last long once cut and brought inside.  oh well, they were sweet for the little while they lasted. 


Ive been doing my spring "nesting".  thats how I decorate for spring!  nests.. birds in nests, dolls in nests.. bears in nests.. and mushrooms..  got shrooms all over the place.  lol!    I know.. Im not normal. 
but I like to play.  I cant help myself.  And soon.. soon soon.. it'll be time to for flowers!  Im looking forward to doing some yard work and planting some pots and window boxes.  you know Im not much of a gardener, I just like to play around a little bit.  
I have been thinking of making my fairy garden bigger.  not sure how yet.. but hopefully I'll think of something.  And of course the dino garden too.   but.. I dont know how the garden stuff will go this year as tony will putting a new roof on the house and hopefully the porch will get redone.. and I want the house painted.. so the garden stuff may have to wait...  in fact.. I may need to move some plants when he starts working around the porch...  hmmmmm....  hadnt thought of this stuff til now..  

Yummy muffin!  cranberry orange.. with almonds!  I ate two..   Im supposed to be losing weight.. but I am my own worst freak'n enemy!  oh dear oh dear!
OK.. thats all for now girls..  Ive got to go to work soon..   have a great day!!

spring has sprung!

Good morning!! Spring has Sprung!! inside and out!  Yesterday was a beautiful day.. mid 60's and sunny.  Today promised mid to high 70's and maybe not as sunny.. perhaps a little rain later..  but thats ok..  70+ degrees!!!    Im so excited!
Yesterday I packed all my sweet little easter friends away and put spring out.  I really dont have a lot for Spring.  mostly just a bunch of nests and birds.  I dont know why it took me all day to put it out.  I just have a little OCD when it comes to decorating. I guess thats why....  
So.. I hope everyone has a lovely day...  I'm off to do a little blog hopping and then to get ready for work. 
just short and sweet this morning.. 
 Toodles friendies!

a quick hello!


Good Morning Bloggy pies!  Yippee its the weekend!
I guess I'm going to have to consider putting all my Easter friends away this weekend... Well, I only have to consider it,  it doesn't really have to happen yet.. it could wait another week.. or two.. or three!  But I shall at least start to consider it!  lol!
I also have a lot of bears to work on, so that's probably where I will focus my attention ad energy.  I should clean my bedroom too.  I don't understand where all the dust comes from!  I need a maid.  Yes, I need a maid and a big house for her to clean.   And a pool and a cute pool boy to clean the pool.  and, while I'm at it, How about a cook!  One who will do all the grocery shopping and keep my house stocked with lots of healthy low fat foods and make me awesome yummy meals to come home to every night!  and what else?? I don't know.     I had no intentions of going where I just went too! lol!  Oh.. I know what else,  a carpenter to rebuild my porch and put a new roof on my house!   You know, this could all be satisfied with just one wave of the wand, if my fairy god mother would just show up!  
Ok.. enough shenanigans!  Ive got to get ready for work.  need to jump in the shower.. though a thunder storm just started!  perhaps I shall wait a few minutes!   yikes!  its raining .. its pouring! 
gotta go! 
Happy Friday Peeps!
