Yes you read that right...and yes I do live in Florida. Now it's certainly not going to be a significant amount of snow, we'll probably have to be standing out in the middle of the yard when the flurries come, but it's snow none the less. I've lived here for 43 years and can't think of too many times that the weatherman has "Snow and sleet in the forecast for tomorrow"...crazy, crazy!
We had the most wonderful visit in Birmingham with the kids...very relaxed, never had to be anywhere at any special time, just lots of good time with the children. Mom had the best time...Little Miss Camden liked mom the best...she wanted mom to play with her and feed her...she liked Grandy almost as much...they had lots of staring contests...she loved sitting with him...look at that static in her hair, what a hoot. She would sit with me if her Nana and Grandy weren't available...Hampton was another story...he and I spent lots of time playing games, doing jigsaw puzzles, reading books, and playing with Thomas and his friends...oh he loves those trains...he's developed quite a sense of humor and had us laughing all the time. Couldn't have been more fun and I can't wait to get back there.
When we got back, and I had a chance to get caught up on blogs I read about a wonderful group on Emily's blog ...Cancer Is Sew Done...a virtual quilting bee...they are asking for blocks, they provide the pattern on their site, sew whatever you want and they put the quilts together and the quilts are auctioned. I did 4 blocks to send them on Wednesday...I've decided that every Wednesday is going to be my day to sew for charity...there are so many people in need and my family and I are so blessed to have good health...I feel like I want to give back.
Before I went away I played Holly Jolly Blog Bingo on The Quilt Shoppe's blog...I won this wonderful little MODA box...squares of 3 Sister's Aster Manor and
Holly Taylor's Migration. What a wonderful prize...thank you so much.
I'm heading to bed so I can get up nice and early in the morning to watch for the snow...I have my camera ready...if it happens I'll be back with pictures tomorrow.
