Time Flies

Where have I been the last several days? Texas, aka home, that's where. And more specifically, I've been wrapped around all twenty fingers of two precious little girls.Grandchildren are God's reward for all the blood, sweat, tears, and prayers invested in our children!
I also took all our tax information to our CPA. So what's the state of our personal economy? With our little money can as a witness, we've made it beyond "dirt poor," hovering near "poor." But I'm not complaining. God has enabled us to put food on the table, clothes on our backs, AND pay our taxes. He is good even when the economy and the government are not.

Now today, as time continues to fly, I'm back in Kentucky trying to recover from sudden changes. Spring is full of them. I still feel like the switch to Daylight Savings Time has me dragging with every step, and then I had to go and fly back and forth across the imaginary line that divides the eastern and central time zones. I don't know what time it is anymore.
Oh yes, it is spring. And the weather has me just about as confused as the clocks. I hope you enjoy these photos of spring, all taken within a seven day span.Before I left Kentucky last Thursday, buds were starting to swell.
Then...Snow fell in Amarillo on Friday.

Now back in Kentucky (and in Amarillo too) those buds are opening.
All in white, no one can redecorate quite like God.

I am so glad that you got to see your "GRANDDAUGHTERS"!!!! Last Saturday I got to met another friends granddaughter. She is just 2 and a half month old. Her Uncle was getting married. I got to hold her....and it made me miss my grandson!!1..Glad you are back with Ricky and as you have enough left for shelter and clothes. The rest will come as you need it. I have faith in that. Just look at all those huge bonus' that AIG got after taking the bailout money. Makes me scratch my head and stop and think.....How can I almost ruin something have someone else bail me out...then I hand out almost as much as was given me.....Any answers. YEs my :little' rant for the day. So on to much happier thoughts. Glad that your family is doing well. Let me know what your son is doing and what the girls are doing while he is diong what it is.

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe these are Bradford Pear trees.

Just gorgeous! You are so right, no one can decorate like God.
And grandkids are His greatest invention too. :)

The pictures of the girls are great. I was able to download them to my picture file. Sure am looking forward to my visit with them in May.
I think it is safe to put away my snow shovel and remove the driveway markers. I put the icemelt away yesterday.
Blessings to you and Rick.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment! I'm glad you were able to download the pictures. If we are home when you get to come, it will be good to see you! If not, we will be sorry to miss you! I'm glad you will have the opportunity to see your grandson and great-granddaughters either way.
And isn't it great to put away the snow gear. Looks like it is supposed to snow again in Amarillo tomorrow. You just never know about the Panhandle weather!
