Well it finally quit snowing.  There is about 7 or 8 inches of the white stuff outside.  It's pretty, but you can bet I'm not going out in it.  These pictures were taken out the back door.

Well, I guess winter is going to hang on a little longer.  We are currently under a Winter Storm Warning until tomorrow morning.  They are saying 3 - 5 inches and frigid temps and blowing wind.  This is what it's doing now.

Thought I would give an update on Bill.  Who is Bill??  He's our Miniature Dachshund, he's a rescue dog.  We got him last October.  This is what Billy looked like then.
 He's put on some weight and is happy now.  This is Billy now.
He's napping with his chew toy.

Can little ones get spring fever?  I'd say so.  The twins are getting antsy being in the house, they want to go outside and play again.  Bella stands at the dining room window and looks out.  She'll stand there for awhile.  She does this several times a day.

The twins like to play with the laundry baskets.  They get in them and sit.  But Luke decided to turn the basket upside down and get under it.

I've started another quilt.  I call it a Coloring Book Quilt.  Why, because I got all the patterns from a coloring book.  Some of the blocks will need some embroidery on them and some are just fine the way they are.

Turtle Block
Giraffe Block

Anyone out there on the wireless network??  I don't really understand this process, but we are about to go wireless here at our house.  Why, well the cable company has jacked our bill up from 124.00 to 164 dollars a month.  When you live on a fixed income every penny counts.  So 40.00 more dollars on the month is just too much.  So our son, who is the computer tech here, is getting us all fixed up.  We will have wireless internet soon.  This is where our wireless is coming from.
See that water tower, that's where the wireless is.  It's about 7 blocks from our house.  Our son has been testing it out for the last month and he says the reception is really good.  The internet is a little slower than what we have been getting.  But we can live with it.

I've been gone from blogging for awhile.  I kind of lost the "urge" to blog.  I'm sure we've all had this happen some time or another.  I'm going to try and get back into the swing of things here.  I've made a few changes and am hoping to get started on a new look.  So the blog may be under construction when you stop by. 
I will be sharing pictures of my twin grandbabies, Bella and Luke.   Also my crocheting.  And I've started a new quilt, it's what I cal a Coloring Book Quilt.  I took all the patterns from a coloring book.  I do what is called Needle Turn Applique work.  This is a link so you can check it out.  I'll also be giving a book report on any books I'm reading. 
This is my life right now.  My grandbabies, crocheting, quilting and books.  I may also throw in a meme or two.  So I'm looking forward to getting back in the swing of things.  Have a great day!
