Hello!!! It has been two years since I posted because blogger wouldn’t accept my photos and without pictures, it didn’t seem worth doing! So we’ll see what happens! We went to Art in the Park today here in Port Clinton on Lake Erie and saw some fun things! 
This is a tufa rock
Planted with various sedums and it came home with us! Real tufa as opposed to manmade hypertufa!

A bracelet made of hand-rolled recycled newspaper - $5!! 

And a beautiful sunrise this morning!!
If this posts with words and pictures, I may do it again!! And reading Lauren Fuqua’s blog today inspired me to try!! Have a good weekend!!

Last Saturday, Sonny and I went to Just Breathe in Bellville, for salt therapy. It is supposed to be very good for respiratory issues ( which he has right now in the form of bronchitis) and skin issues, which we don't have!

It was very relaxing and quite soothing to sit in a room with Himalayan pink sea salt panels on the wall, salt crystals on the floor and a salt mist being blown into the room via a salt generator. They play soft music and the lights are low for a 45 minute treatment! I know, it sounds kind of 'out there' but the next morning he was able to breathe better!! I'm sure we'll do it again! You can google salt rooms and read for yourself!

I just upgraded my phone program so I hope it will enable me to post without issues! If so, maybe I can post more often!! It wouldn't accept my picture of the salt room ~ how irritating!

Have a good day ~ it's going to be in the 50's here in Ohio tomorrow!

We had our lake neighbors over for pork and sauerkraut New Years Day! We're toasting our friends, Diane and Greg, who were on their way to Florida!

Yes ~ I'm still out here in blog land but it's hard to tell! I spent an hour reading blog posts tonite. Not only haven't I posted but haven't been reading them either! Nice to see what everyone is up to!

Maybe I'll get back in the groove ~ I hope you're all well and ready to tackle a new year!!!!

Last night, Seattle son, Chris and grandson, Hunter arrived to spend a few days in Ohio!  He wanted their picture taken with brother, Tad and Tad wanted the cat to join them!  That cat won't let anybody but me or Tad handle him like that ~ he understands Tad and that's pretty amazing!  The guys won't be around much but whatever time we have them is a good thing!  They're looking at colleges for Hunter and making unofficial visits to a variety of places.  We had a late night meal and I fixed Hunter a big breakfast to send them on their way!  Sonny was impressed ~ I fixed him breakfast, too ~ it did come up in conversation that it's not a regular ritual! 

I'm dyeing wool and getting things ready for the Gathered Treasures show on Saturday!!  Check out Black Cat Primitives on Facebook for a list of vendors! 

I'll try to blog a little more ~ it's very easy to get out of the habit.  I see more bloggers are posting less and less.  Facebook is easier to put on a little blurb here and there but not everybody's on Facebook!

Stay tuned for more wool pictures!

Have a great day ~ it's a cold, blowy Spring day here in Ohio!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Just adding this photo to see if Blogger will post it! For some reason none of my pictures are showing from past blog postings!

Hope all is well in your world!

This is our antique sleigh holding our first-ever artificial tree! First ever in my life! Time got away from us and I brought up my kitchen tree which is already decorated. Sonny, actually, was a little happy ~ he cuts the tree, brings it home, and decorates it! He felt like he lucked out this year! And you know what, it works!

I love the way the sunlight is streaming in the window. No sun here today ~ this was last week!

We went to a fun party at our kids' friends house this weekend! Good food and lots of laughs ~ we so appreciate being included. They have a white elephant exchange and this grandma was the lucky recipient of the gag gift ~ a red sequined thong!!!! Of all people! They got a lot of mileage out of that one!! Thanks Brigette and John for inviting us!!

I took pizza pull-apart muffins. You can find the recipe on my Pinterest page under 'Bread Box' - it is always a hit!

Have a happy Monday!
