Back Again

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post.  I know you’ve been busy—me too. 

Geez how time flies.  Just look outside and you can see that we are getting closer to spring here in New England. It’s Marching up the east coast though I heard it may take a detour over the next couple of days, weather-wise that is.  Last year at this time I was outside raking leaves and cleaning up the beds—not this year.  The snow has mostly melted in the backyard but the front still looks like the artic circle.

I’m in full swing to train for my Avon 2-day walk. The weather has been cool but dry and perfect for longer and longer walks.  I walk an average of two plus miles a day with a couple of extra long walks twice a week.  My goal this week is to work up to eight miles in one stretch.

Have you noticed the pink “Donate”  button in the upper left corner of my blog?   When you click on it, it will take you to my Avon Personal Page where you can read my story and make a donation and I hope you will help me to end this disease once and for all.  I want to see all of our daughters, granddaughters, nieces, sisters, cousins and friends have a future that isn’t touched by breast cancer.  

P.S.   EVERYONE who makes a donation, no matter what amount is entered into the FREE raffle for my Bonnie Hunter Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll Quilt, which is now finished!  Pictures to follow SOON!  I Promise!


I have some pictures to share with you today, since this will be a short post.  They were taken at the New England Flower Show when it was in full swing.   You can scroll down to an older post and see the “BEFORE” pictures taken on the day my daughter and I helped set up the flower show.  

Enjoy—there’s more to come!

  1. I wish the weather would just make up it's mind, I am so ready for spring. I have sold Avon for years, but just buy for myself now, haven't kept up with events and things.


  2. Love your pictures! Good luck on your walking goal this week. I am joining a Cancer climb on April 30 here in my town. :)


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. When you do, you make my day!
