Spring? Wherefore art thou?

I am sooo done DIGGIN' it!
This is the longest winter that I can remember in a long time!  Will it EVER end?!

I know I could never move to Florida, but come on Mother Nature....

Give us a break!  Enough already!!

Today is was almost 60 degrees!  Which felt like a heat wave!
The sun was even out and everything is melting!
I might even be able to Giggle again....
But not for long because it looks like we have MORE snow in the forecast!
Even Sophie has HAD it with the white stuff!

Flying out the door!

We had several pieces of furniture fly out the door this week!  Such a great feeling to clearing out some of these pieces of furniture to make space in my Barn Shoppe for some other things coming in!






There are just not an enough hours in the day lately for me to
get to all the projects I thought I would have time for!

I guess that's  what happens when you have 4 kids and
7 grandchildren!

XOXO

Dads Passion




My Dad will be 77 this year in August.  He was a Home Builder until he got involved in Race Horses!


I was around 9 or 10 I think when race horses became not only his passion but his new line of work love!  





So since the "60's" he has been racing his horses at the track.

He stopped building houses and started claiming horses.  He bought a 33 acre farm and filled it with race horses. 


 
 I asked him one day not too long ago when he was going to retire and take it easy....
He said "When I fall down dead in my tracks! 
I LOVE what I do and I don't want to ever stop doing it!"


So even tho taking care of a ton of horses all day every day is really a lot of work
and even tho it has aged my dad from being constasntly outside in the New England weather,
he LOVES what he does!



Not too many people can say that they LOVE what they do and make a living at it.


My Dad is one of the lucky ones.  He had riding horses as a kid and then we had horses growing up and now he has his race horses and is a trainer.  He has had a few great horses over the years.

And I will assume he has made a pretty penny every now and again.  But all that seems to matter to him is that he can keep racing and having his horses.


Him and his wife are side by side every day too, doing what they love!

Moms Vintage Family



Not sure if you have noticed yet or not, but I LOVE vintage pictures!  I mostly LOVE the ones of our family!

This is mom's high school picture....

And this is my Mom, not sure how old she was here.....
These lovely ladies are my Aunt Vivian, she is one of my grandmothers sisters,
then my Aunt Janet, she is my Mom's older sister, and then my Grandmother, Beatrice or "Bea"
as a lot of people called her.

My grandmother LOVED the beach!  It's one of the things I always will remember about her.  She seemed the happiest ever at the beach!
