Busy, Busy

Hello, Dear Ones! First of all I would like to apologize for not responding to your comments on the last couple of my posts! I'm sorry, please forgive me. I've just been so so busy!
 I cut some beautiful lilacs from my bush for you. The blooms are gorgeous and the color is 50 times deeper than it was last year I think I'm doing something right! Not to mention how these smell ~ heavenly. Do you forgive me?
 Spring is finally here and everything is popping up and looking very promising.
 Except today. It was 43' this morning and only got to about 50' this afternoon.
 Also it has poured buckets of rain, rain, rain.
 But the weather promises to get back to being spring about the middle of the week.
We've been sleeping with our bedroom windows up and it feels so good. These little wind chimes are just below our bedroom so we hear the sweet chimes when the wind blows. I love that. 

 I wanted you all to know our little Carter is doing so well. She is totally off the steroids and almost each day her little body is getting back to her normal size. She is enrolled in softball for the very first time and she is loving it! Of course we had to go and see her first game. They only played for three innings. I think that's what you call it because I know knowing about sports! :) Again, thank you for all of your prayers for her. God certainly answered. I would remind Him each time I prayed that we had 'armies of prayer warriors lifting her up'. I know He knew that, but I just felt like I needed to say it, probably for myself. He's good.
 We have the very nicest of neighbors. My neighbor across the street was cleaning out his ferns and asked if we wanted some? Shoot yeah! I was going to go to the nursery and buy ferns just for this spot! I think they'll spread pretty fast. I love ferns. See my makeshift birdbath? I turned a pot upside down and placed the bottom on top and filled it with water. The little birds don't care. You all know I'm just talented like that! :)  Oh, I was thrilled ~ I saw an eagle the other day. Not at my house but as I was driving out in a rural area! I almost cried as it just touched me so. I thought of the scripture that says those that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength and they will mount up with wings like eagles! 
 As for me, I'm doing well and I appreciate you all who have asked about me and prayed for me. Having the hardware taken out of my knee has set me back a bit and I will be going back to physical therapy this Friday. I'm bending my knee as much as I can but it still hurts like the dickens when I try to do 'normal stuff'. But I can walk using my cane, even if I do walk like Frankenstein! I am able to get out though and I can drive, just takes me a lot longer getting in and out of the car.
We've been busy watching our little grandbabies. We love that! We had both of them Friday night and had so much fun with them. All this being said is to tell you that I need to take a little break for a bit. Between the babies, me, spring and gardening (I've learned to crack that whip and tell Mr. Precious what I need done) and a new little hobby I'm starting, I just need a little more time for me and my thingys for a little bit.  I'll be back and I love you all ~ don't forget me.

You are all my bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

What A Wonderful World

 I see trees of green, red roses too

I see them bloom for me and you
And I say to myself
What wonderful world
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
Bright sunny days, dark sacred nights
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
The colors of the rainbow are so pretty in the skies
Are also on the faces of people walking by
I see friends shaking hands saying
How do you do?
They're really saying
I love you
I see babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world
And I say to myself
What a wonderful world
