Share A Sunset . . .

Mister Irish Guy of mine told me 20 years ago . . .
“I don’t do flowers!”
Well . . . “first time flowers” arrived yesterday from my
Mister Irish . . . (Never say Never!)


And the best part, fun part, my guy who is a
recycle guru made the vase from “shingles.”

(I wondered what he was “putzin” with downstairs the day before . . .
He ordered the flowers, took his vase to the florist and there you have it!)


And then my “Share A Sunset” theme happened too.
Off we went to see the setting sun at the Lakeshore and dinner after . . .


Gorgeous view . . .
We counted . . . 1 2 3 4 5 . . . as the sun slipped away . . .
Remember . . . “It’s the little things . . .”

(I think he knew I needed a smile and his “shingle vase” did just that!
I had the shingle shot ten years ago but guess I am one of the unlucky ones . . . because
I have the “Yucky Shingles!!”
FYI . . . the newer Shingle Shot is supposed to be more affective than the older shot.
Protect yourself . . . they are not fun!)

A Wonderful Happy ❤️ Day!

We Brought Dessert . . .

Dinner invite for BBQ ribs at the Treppa’s . . .
Delicious . . . potato bites, roasted brussel sprouts, caeser salad and Chuck’s Ribs . . . oh my!
We enjoyed being together . . . visiting about our families, upcoming watercolor painting days,
Jack’s Navy days living through a few hurricanes and watching “new pup” Abbey . . .

Oh my . . . she is a love . . .
And look at her, she is three months . . .
and she is already trained to sit for a treat and give her master a paw shake.
Mister Irish was enjoying Abbey too . . .


Wish I had thought to take food pics . . .
Playing with Abbey took center stage I guess . . .
We brought dessert . . . and I did manage to click a picture of the “Hearts” at home
Raspberry Bars, Donna’s recipe and my favorite Brownie recipe . . .

Tried a couple recipes for the Raspberry Bars . . .
This one and Ina Garten’s recipe are both delicious . . .
Wonderful Sweet Treat . . .


Happy Valentines Day . . . a day for Sweetness . . . Give some . . . Enjoy some . . .

Sing Robins Sing. . .

I opened my ipad this morning and found this . ...
Sometimes . . . It’s the little things . . . that lift me up, just when I need it the most . . .
Not sure why I loved this so . . . I do know though . . . that it is
unbelievable the love, friendship and creativity that is found in this blogging world.

I am not the author . . . Michelle is the author . . . please visit her and tell her hello . . .
Her link is below . . .

Truly . . .
It’s the litte things . . .

*****
It’s A Small Town Life . . .

This sweet Robin was hopping around our yard early Sunday morning. And, not just this one, but many were coming and going. I've always heard that a Robin is a sure sign of spring being on its way. If this is the case, well spring is on its way in full force.

Did you also know....

If a Robin stays close to the house in the Fall, a harsh Winter is on its way.

If you break a Robin's eggs, then something of yours will soon be broken.

Robins are thought to be helpful to humans, sometimes granting favors.

If a Robin flies into your home, a family member will soon die.

"Crimson Clover I discover, by the garden gate,
and the bees about her hover, but the Robins wait.
Sing, Robins, sing, Sing a roundelay.
'Tis the latest flower of spring coming with the May."
