Grandma Barb’s This and That

Look what I see

Some randomness for Friday over at Nancy's A Rural Journal

One

Could spring be working it's way in.  I see puddles in the driveway.


 Two

Temps in the 50's



Three

Green grass peeking through the snow.



Four

A little Spring decorating



Five

This has nothing to do with spring.  It's the fact that I have been sick for the last week and haven't gotten around to posting.  I'm feeling better everyday but still not over this awful cold or virus that I have.  I think everyone around here has had it and it finally got me down.  I will be having some medical tests done next week that have nothing to do with my cold.  I'm asking for your thoughts and prayers as I am not certain what the outcome is going to be.  I will let you know when I find out though.

Thanks for stopping.  Please stop over at Nancy's Blog to see lots more randomness.

Until Next Time
Barb

Yay for spring finally breaking through!
Feel better soon Barb; I'll be holding you in my thoughts and heart through your virus, and your tests.

Hope your medical news is fine, Barb. Lots of people here have that cold/cough that just hangs on. Looks like a spring thaw is happening there.

So happy to see signs of Spring! We've had those nasty colds around here too. Praying for you as you go through the tests.

You are certainly in my thoughts. I wish you only the best outcome with your tests. They are always so scary because of the unknown. Hang in there. I had the viruses twice this winter, and they were not fun. Get well soon.

Hope you are feeling better soon, Barb...and I'll say a prayer for those tests. The warmer temps are so welcome...we still have a lot of snow here...

Thinking of you Barb, praying too that all of your tests will turn out fine. Get over that nasty cold, they are the pits, aren't they?

Lynn said...

ah I'm sorry you are feeling unwell, and worrying about the medical, good luck on both!! At least you can be cheered by the disappearing winter stuff...

Roan said...

Our snow has finally melted and I know spring will eventually show up. Sending thoughts and prayers your way. I hope the tests give good results.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Sending prayers your way Barb -- hope it is nothing.

I knew you would be getting some melt someday -- hope it does not mean any flooding or water issues. xo

My Little Home and Garden said...

I'll be thinking of you and hope that your medical concerns are soon addressed, Barb. It's easy to say, but try not to worry.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Lovely almost spring photos - I can't wait - we are under a flood watch (not us personally - but the area).

Please do keep us posted. I have a little angel that I put out on the china cabinet and when it is there I think of someone special and send good thoughts their way - it is set up for you - so whenever I see it - I'll think of you and wait for the best outcome to be announced.

Stewart M said...

6. The air had an autumnal feel in Australia today.

This means it must be getting on for spring with you.

Hope you keep getting better.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

tomorrow it's supposed to snow.
spring isn't coming.

Hang in there - spring is surely coming. I say that while watching it snow here today.
Hope you feel better soon and my thoughts and prayers are with you in that your test results will be favorable.
Take care.

Linda said...

Feel better! Looks like you may finally get some Spring! Have a wonderful day!!

JOY @ http://joysjotsshots.blogspot.com/ said...

Glad to see spring peeking through for you. We've def had a northern winter this year. It's like Spring is taking 2 steps forward and 1 step backward. Just had snow yesterday, Mar. 25. Even though it's getting warmer, I wouldn't be surprised to see some flakes in April. We always say Winter is not over until after Easter. Stay warm! Prayers of hoping to enJOY more of your pictures in the near future.
