If I have done this correctly, here is a picture of my grandson..six months old, modeling a bib I made using old sweatshirt fabric. As you can see by the carrots all over his face, he NEEDS full coverage with a bib!
Ok..that didn't work. Try this: share.shutterfly.com/share/received/
There are several other pictures here as well...but you will see several of THE bib.
BTW.. original bib was purchased, I copied the shape. Used elastic and a button instead of a snap arrangement like the original. My first effort was toweling with an applied edging, with a button and loop closure.

Some of my SP friends have posted beautiful photos on their blogs.
I have been involved in several discussions about flowers blooming and the progression of signs of spring.
I took a few photos with my cell phone to share with someone who says they don't get many daffodils in their area. Today, the hyacinth opened their first blooms. So..I shall attempt to share.
Well, there are the hyacinth. (Remember, this was taken with my cell phone! Not great quality)
This is a view across my front yard, looking out towards the cow field.

I was surprised, this evening, to discover that I had stayed within my calorie range for the day...despite some stress eating early on. (I probably am slightly over cal. range..but close enough not to worry about it).
This morning, I had a chiropractor appointment...near my work, fifty minutes from home. Since the weather was foul, I left early. I got to the end of the driveway.
No power steering! I actually thought my engine had stalled, so shut off and restarted and pulled out onto the road, but quickly realized the steering was the problem! I had a difficult time getting turned around.
OK..switch vans. BUT, first I couldn't find the correct keys. Then, the van had a nearly flat tire. DH said it was a slow leak...just needs air. Ok.
BUT, the compressor is all disconnected. I had to find the correct connections, get it running and then go out in the downpour to put air in the tire.
Tick, tick, tick...I am now running LATE and the rain is coming down heavily. I call to let Dr's office know I will be late.
I eventually got things back on track. The Dr's 10 am app't didn't arrive on time, so they took me. The recent X-ray revealed NO problems with bones and joints etc...and my last adjustment had been effective. All good news.
I seemed to be "hungry" (just wanted to eat) all day at work, but I bring my lunch and snacks...so had ONLY that to enjoy...good thing for if there had been other stuff available..I would have ENJOYED getting into trouble!
I had a sensible dinner (contemplated pizza all the way home!) and now have recorded nearly everything. GOOD JOB and good ending to the day. (and the rain even stopped..though more is on the way!)

This is a picture taken with my ancient cell phone. It shows the trail between my son's house and my own here on the farm. I walked up there with the dogs today. My friend Lori posts so many lovely pictures of her walking trail..and Carol posts pictures of clouds and flowers and mountains. Thought I would share a piece of my world.
Our weather is warming up some..first daffodils bloomed today. Grass is beginning to show green. We aren't done with winter yet, but the deep freezes appear to be over in our area, for which I am very grateful.

I spent 50 minutes bending, stretching and walking today...picking up the trash left behind by neighbors and others as they pass our roadfront. The area I cleaned up is not that long...maybe the length of an average house lot on a corner. I didn't count the bottles but I got 44 beer cans! There was plastic, paper, aluminum, glass...broken (hazardous to our animals and children!) and whole bottles, styrofoam, barbed wire, reg. wire, cups, plates, plastic bags, one halloween goody bag and two golf balls (!?!)
I just DON'T understand why anyone feels free to toss so much stuff out their car windows...ANYWHERE!
I can certainly think of more pleasant exercise.
