St.Valentine Weekend Update

 We've had a heck of a weekend here on the Willoughby Ranch.  Jon and Charlotte were in a car accident early in the week, and came home for some rest and recuperation.  Jon has whiplash and Charlotte was shaken, adding insult to her already injured back and neck.  The couches were filled and I made them as comfortable as I could.

We went for a grocery run and a little ride on Saturday and encountered MORE EAGLES!  You might get tired hearing about them but it's a thrill to see them.  See that eagle shaped blob in the photo?  Zoom in for a better look.

 We walked the fancy pants mall and checked out the Pottery Barn window.  The walks were clear and the
temperature wasn't crazy cold this weekend.  It was a brief respite since the snow is flying as I write this.  Another 4 to 6 inches of snow today.
 A little splurge...  I've been good as far as my need for magazines, but these just need the long look see.  So many cool things packed into the photos.
 I am thinking and decorating in anticipation of , dare I say, SPRING!
 Sweet blossoms!
 I celebrated a birthday this weekend.  I'll say it loud and proud, I'm 59!  I received so many cards and gifts, well wishes on Facebook...even a birthday video from our sweet p.
 Be still my heart.
Roses from son Jon.  Life is very good.

Now if we can get Jon and Charlotte on the mend... Here's hoping for a better week ahead for those two.
So glad they choose to come home for a while.

Wishing you a great week.  Thanks for stopping by and for all your kind comments.  Enjoy this beautiful day.

So sorry to hear about the accident! Believe it or not, my two girls were in an accident on the way to school right before Christmas. Whiplash, both, along with headaches. I was so worried! Yours are so lucky to have you help them recuperate. Wish I could full out decorate, but we will be officially "listed" by the weekend, so I've got to pull back the reins:( I had a birthday on 2/13, rhymes with nifty:) Happy belated birthday, Penny!

I am so sorry to hear of Jon and Charlotte's car accident. They are blessed to have you nearby where they can stay for a few days and have you watch over them. And...happy belated birthday! I feel so bad that I missed it. I hope you had a beautiful day. Looking forward to seeing you later this week!

Happy Birthday Penny! I have three different dates for the actual birth day. You'll have to set me straight!

I hope Jon and Charlotte are on the mend . . . not fun to think about loved ones being in car accidents!

We are getting the snow here too!

I hope Jon and Charlotte are feeling better soon! Well belated happy 59 to you! Your still young and enjoying your life! It's still snowing here, I think in this neck of IL we have nearly 70". Spring has to come, right?
