I had a scare this weekend when my daughter called to let me
know that she had been in a head on car accident.
A oncoming driver lost control on a icy hill.
Thank God she was not hurt!
Besides my daughter, her boyfriend, and one of his best friends were in the car.
were not hurt!!
The oncoming driver responsible for the
accident also walked away uninjured!!
After hearing this news,
I kept myself busy drawing.
Even though they were all ok, my daughter had been asleep in the
back of the car and the impact had left her very bruised and sore.
Her boyfriend insisted that they go to the ER and make sure
that there were no broken ribs.
Good news.....just bruised!
About midday I had some very special visitors.
Heidi came to visit with one of her best friends and her best friends daughter. We had tea, and I told a lot of stories.
Heidi brought me this cute polka dot cup and a sweet kitchen towel.
I will treasure them forever!!!
After my wonderful company left,
I pulled out these little leaf creations that my daughter would make when
we took walks together.
We called them little "Fairy Purses"
She would pluck a leaf off a tree or pick a dandelion leaf then fold it over and push through their
stems, and presto a cute little purse would appear.
She would always give me the new purse creation and I would ooh and
awe over them. I pressed them and saved them.
They are such lovely reminders of our love for one another.
Really cute, and rather stylish!
After looking at her little purses I wandered out to the bunk house.
On the way I noticed that the rabbits had been in one of my flower boxes.
They are everywhere and I enjoy them.
They have been very good about my garden and the apple trees.
One of them really had a nice dinner with this willow branch.
Spring is really
on its way even though it's still cold.
I spotted this feather on a branch.
When I got to the bunk house I pulled out a little miniature quilt that I made for my daughter.
I am storing it for her till she gets done with college.
The bunk house has boxes of clothes in it right now, but those will be tended to this summer.
It's such a cheerful little place, my little refuge.
Sometimes I come out here in the summer and just take a nap.
Or I will day dream with a magazine at the table.
It's such a fun place to be. I have made most of the pillows, some from
towels that I have stitched.
I am so glad my daughter is ok!
It's hard when your children are in another state!
Both my son and daughter are off at college.
God Bless all our children and keep them safe!
I can hear the Stellar Jays calling....
so off I go to give them some treats!
