Where's the Bear? #71

We've had some chilly nights lately, but most of the days are beautiful!  I found Bear seemingly entranced by the lava lamp the other night.  Maybe he was near it for the radiant heat?

First Day of Spring


Welcome to the first day of Spring 2016!  This is what it looked like when I woke up this morning!

Yesterday my crocuses looked like this:

Today they look like this:

The deer munched them down to the ground!


Where's the Bear? #69

It looks like the bear is stepping in for J's guitar lesson today.  She's home for the 3rd day with yet another stomach bug.  I've had to cancel appointments for her every day, hope she perks up today!

Where's the Bear? #68

I heard a ruckus downstairs this morning.  I found the bear playing a rousing game of Monopoly with his buddies!

Spring is Springing!

This morning, there was a change in the air.  It smelled like Spring!  The breeze was warm, and the birds were singing with great gusto.

A few minutes ago, while throwing balls for the dogs, I noticed the first Spring flower popping up in my flower bed.

I think this it IT folks, Spring is almost here!

For a Chuckle...

After logging off here just a couple of minutes ago, I took a peek at one of my favorite blogs, MousesHouses.  The latest post was so absolutely adorable, that I just had make a link to it.  Check it out!

Where's the Bear? #67

It has not been the greatest of days, even though it was a day off school for the girls.

The rest of J's blood work came in, and it looks like her JIA is flared up again, after being in remission for about 4 years.  I have an appointment in about a month to take her back to the Pediatric Rheumatologist at Children's Hospital.

This evening, after being downstairs for an unreasonably long time "getting ready for bed", L yelled up the stairs that the toilet was overflowing.  She is known for her excessive use of toilet paper, so I blamed her for that.  The toilet did not unplug, however, and it appears that whatever blocked it is blocking the entire line to the septic tank, making ALL FOUR of our toilets unusable.  JP, L and I spent almost 2 hours cleaning up toilet water from the floors of both downstairs bathrooms, and I have a load of towels and rugs running in the washer.  The plumber is coming late tomorrow morning.


During all of the excitement this evening, J snuggled up with her bear to read Harry Potter for the third time.  They are literally party poopers.
