Happy February

I'm totally enjoying looking at my Paper Source calendar. This months is bright and vibrant, a really nice contrast to the greyness of the atmosphere of late. I think it would be nice to have a little sun peek through the clouds at least for a short time, a promise that it is still hanging out up there.

I like February. February contains holidays for me...Birthdays. My Dear Daddy will be 95 tomorrow. He is an amazing man.. still very active, walks several miles each day, works hard, is funny as funny can be. He's a cowboy..he still wears his boots and jeans and is quite the dapper gentleman. All the ladies, both young and old, love him. This does not always sit well with my Mother however... she sometimes gets a little irritated when the ladies flirt with her husband. LOL She will be turning 87 on the 9th, and she is a corker too. She still crochets doilies and other things, using the finest thread, that I can barely see. She's always crafting something. Ask her if she can make a snowflake, and 10 minutes later she hands you one, a lovely crocheted one. She makes killer deviled eggs, and she can be a real devil herself at times. I mean this in the nicest way...she cracks us all up. Both my parents are pretty darn funny. I miss them, as I live far away and only get to see them a few times a year. Hub and I are planning our February trip and will be going there later in the month. There are a lot of other family birthdays this month...son, brother, cousins. But I consider my parents birthdays extra special, and feel so fortunate to still have them in my life.


  1. Even with gray skies, you have your trip to visit your parents to look forward to, great post. I hope I get there before you leave on your trip. Can you send me an email with your phone number again, I have a different computer and don't have it in here, thx.

  2. How lucky you are to still have your parents. Both mine died in their very early 60' at 61 and the other at 62.

    I hope you get some sunshine soon!
