Welcome back Winter

It has been warm and beautiful so far this Winter. My yard looked beautiful until today. The first photos are Friday. 70 degrees, sunshine...beautiful day!

 And now, this morning! It's in the 30's and snow. The temperature is supposed to drop into the teens tonight. There goes my flowers. But I love snow and so do my dogs! Rascal is having a BLAST!

Rascal loves the snow!

Springfield RV Show 2017

This has been a busy weekend. Friday I went up North with my good friend, Jon, to Missouri Star Quilt Company. I always love to see all the different fabric shops and quilt ideas.

Saturday, my husband and I took off to Joplin to visit my best friend. I grew up in Joplin and it is really nice to visit. We had a wonderful meal and drinks at Casa Montez. 

On our way back home we stopped in Springfield and checked out the RV show. It's not the biggest RV show but I really enjoy this show! We found a couple we really liked but as I always say, I love the one we have because it's paid for. What a busy and fun weekend! I am ready to relax in my recliner.

Early Spring

We are having an early Spring. I mean seriously early Spring! It's not even March and things are blooming and the temperatures have been in the 60s and 70s. I hate to see the bulb flowers all coming up because I know it is a matter of time another cold front can sweep down from Canada. I love Spring but I was not done with Winter. I really would like to have one pretty snow and build a snowman with my grandson.

Ice Storm 2017

The weather forecast were calling for a lot of ice. So much, some companies even closed this past Friday. But thankfully, the ice missed us, others South of where I live, were not so lucky. But here are some photos I snapped of the ice.
