Monday Musings

Happy Monday to you!  I pray you had a sweet and joy filled weekend and that you are excited to be alive this day.  Isn't it amazing that this is the very last day of February?  Where do the days go?  Our weekend was very nice~Saturday I had my exercise class and although it was cool, we didn't get any snow.  Saturday evening we went to our oldest daughter's home for dinner and a game night.  Carrie is an amazing cook and tries things I never would and does them well.  We played three games of Uno and one game of Qwirkle; three of the grands are awesome players.  Yesterday we went to a local Home Show and of course it got me in the mood for spring and planting but I think it is still too early to start seeds.  Then in the afternoon as I quilted, hubby watched golf being played in Tuscon.  We couldn't believe we saw snow-in Arizona and hail-so glad it missed us.  We also watched the Academy Awards and the movie I want to see is the King's Speech.  I'm still trying to finish up the baby quilt; it is taking me so much longer because I'm doing so much hand quilting on it but hopefully this week it will be done.  I do have another quilt to make for a special girls birthday(in April) so I best get started.
Have a wonderful day today, remember to give thanks in the big and little things of life.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Hi Noreen. I have been missing your posts. My blogroll is not good at updating! It looks like you have been having some good family fun!!! The grands are all beautiful! And yes....I can see how happy they make you. I share your feelings!!!
    Have a great week friend!

  2. Glad you had a nice week-end Noreen. We had a good one too though soo cold and quick. We saw the King's Speech and it was REALLY good...Have a great day! HUGS

  3. Howdy Noreen!
    May you have a sweet week.
    Sooooo gld we're one day closer to SPRING.

    God bless,

  4. I did enjoy the no snow day yesterday...went for 2 walks. Today we walked and the kids played outside. I could get use to this (o:
    Have fun quilting.

  5. I opted out of the Academies this year, but I really want to see "The King's Speech". I also want to see another new one, "The Grace Card."

    Arizona, near Flagstaff and even the northerm rim of the Grand Canyon is known for snow. Who knew? I sure didn't; and all my years there didn't prepare me to leave the desert floor, drive into the higher realms, and freeze my bustle blue.

    Enjoy your week,

  6. hey friend - i am glad that y'all had a great time at your daughters. i love this pics from the last post - you are just adorable and the sweet spirit of God is so evident in your face!

  7. Any weekend that includes the grands is an excellent weekend in my book! ;-)

    I think I'm the only one who didn't watch the Oscars last night. :-o
