She HATES things in her hair!
Even now!

Best 4 Last

Bill has been traveling this week and I won't see him until next weekend at Brady's birthday party.

How surprised as I to get these Pixs of this handsome guy???

MORE Grandma Pixs

The BOYS went to a cookie factory and had a BALL!!

I hope they saved me one!


Grandma got quite a few NEW Pixs this weekend.

Here are some GREAT ones from Ariana and Ali!!


Picture of the snow from my bedroom windows.
I've made my tea, the dogs have gone out (again...I think they just want to play in the snow) and I have my book.

Think I will just stay in bed and watch it snow!!

Nothing Pretty About This

Come on now...

Even Better

I finished the rest of that BIG BURGER for dinner and it was EVEN BETTER tonite!!

I went for a short walk when the sun FINALLY came out this afternoon.

I didn't walk very far, it was COLD & WINDY!!

I Only Ate Half!!

Went out to lunch today and ordered a cheeseburger!! Is it BIG ENOUGH??

I brought half home!!
Bill doesn't eat beef anymore so I always get a hamburger or steak when I am out.

Tasted GOOD!!

The "BOYS" from across the Bay at the Naval Station are practicing today.

They left me something pretty over my house.

My Bird Herd

Can you see the real-estate agent in the first unit in the middle row??

The second picture shows our over crowded unit that we are hoping are not attracting a bad element.

The third house is round and is just beginning to attract the ELITE of the swamp. Not all units are taken yet. We have seen at least two families move in.

What a LIFE!!

Bill is chillin' today after cleaning the shed and putting up his bird house yesterday.

He would be out on the BAY today but the wind will not die down.

I am still in my JAMMIES sitting on the deck with a REAL GOOD BOOK.

(AJ...you are going to like this book!!)

A little cooler today than yesterday and a little breezier but with my JAMMIES and my shawl I am comfortable.

To our surprise, birds are checking out the new bird house. We watched one bird go in and out of all the holes. I figure he is the real-estate agent.

Bill's Bird House

Bill always works on a WINTER PROJECT in the shed. This year he made a HUGE BIRD HOUSE!!

Putting up the pole was interesting. Had to do with tying a rope around my waist and me walking backwards to raise the pole.

I think I saw this on TV once but they used an OXEN!!

My Pretty Little House

After 30 some years living in the suburbs of DC, racing around the beltway, maneuvering I270, braking on Rockville Pike, waiting in long lines at the Giant, I can really say...I LOVE MY LITTLE TINY HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF BISHOPS HEAD!!


Weird sky pattern the other day. Some pilot must have seen something over the BAY and had to take a look.

I hope!

Winter Toes

My winter toes finally see the sunshine today.

The sky is BLUE and it is SO QUIET. Just the birds and my windchime.

Sparky and Buddy are living the LIFE!!

The principal of our school asked me to paint a picture of the school.

Once again, this is how it came out.

Enough Rain Already

Everyone up across the Bay Bridge can just keep their own rain water.

This is the HIGH TIDE this morning after yesterday's storms.

We will we experience your rain for the next couple days.

Gail was surprised that this is what she drive through last night.

Happy Belated Birthday Gail

She chose Mexican for her BIRTHDAY DINNER.


Gail Did It!!

I know you can't see the HIGH TIDE on the road, but Gail did a GREAT JOB driving through the water.

Her hands were gripped pretty tightly to the steering wheel and I yelled out to her which way the water was rushing over the road.

As you can tell from this BAD PICTURE, there is not much light to go by.

And YES, it was the BAY that was after her.

Gail Has Arrived

She came down for a couple of days.

She is all settled in.
Cozy on the couch with her notebook..

Let the fun begin!!

Something New

Just trying something new.
Old wood bottoms from crab baskets found a long the shore.

Mr. Abt, the school principal wanted me to paint him a watermelon and Donna Abbott gave me the idea of the crab basket bottoms.

What do you think??
Any new ideas??
