A Bit of This and That

I can hardly believe another weekend is almost over -- they go so quickly!  The weather was nice here, and we managed to get a lot done.  I've started my spring cleaning, and it feels good to see progress.  We didn't get to start on the yard like we had hoped because of a car repair issue.  The Hubster has saved us so much money over the years by being able to do most of our car repairs.  He saved us about $250.00 this time, based on the quote we received from the mechanic.

A Cottage With A Touch of the Irish

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!  Are you wearing your green today?  We've just returned from a quick trip to the coast.  We had three whole days there, and even though it rained all day Saturday, we still had a wonderful time.  It's always good to get away when we have a chance.

Signs Along The Way

Hope you enjoy this sign that we always pass on our way to and from the beach.

Chocolate Decadence

Good afternoon to you on this rainy March day.  I just had to take a picture of this; I'm not normally one to take pictures of my food when we're out in public, but --

McGee's Pub

Once Upon A Time in a place called North Carolina, there lived a husband, a wife and son, a dog, a cat, and two sets of grandparents.  The husband was working on a big computer software installation at his company's Ireland facility in Kilkeel, Northern Ireland.

Vintage Childhood Prints

Happy Thursday, everyone!  It's raining cats and dogs here; how about where you are?  Yesterday was a breath of spring, today is a blast of winter .  {:/  However, next week, we'll have more daylight in the evenings, and I'm looking forward to that!

Our family was all gathered at my parents' house back in February to celebrate my mom's birthday.  It was a fun time, and before we left my mom gave my sister and I these pictures, which used to hang in our bedroom when we were babies and toddlers.  We shared a bedroom until I was ten years old.

Downton Abbey Season Five

***SPOILER ALERT***

Did you watch Downton Abbey Sunday night?  I thought for a few several minutes last night that we were going to miss the season finale.  Our picture and sound kept blinking off -- I mean like every 30 to 60 seconds.  My first thought was that I hope it's not time to purchase a new TV; my second thought was that it could not have picked a worse time to go on the blink.  Hubby finally turned the DVR off and then back on, and that fixed the problem.  The TV problem, that is.  There is really no way to turn the barking dog off -- seriously, no matter how many times we pointed the remote at him, he just wouldn't turn off.  ;)  We did manage to get the gist of the show, though; thank goodness for the "Pause" feature on DVR.
