my abc's

My book-loving friend Pondside recently had a very cute post with an abc meme.
I thought I'd give it a try, too.

A.  Age: I'm very content to be as happy & healthy as I am at my age, which is not the age in my head.
B.  Bed Size: Queen, with very soft white sheets.  When my husband snores: Full, with very soft white sheets.
C.  Chore You Hate: Weeding, especially in humidity.  Why am I the only weeder in the house?

D.  Dogs: Absolutely not....cats only!  Sheba, then Zelda, then Cleo, then Max & now Jack & Buster.

E.  Essential Start to Your Day: a quiet cup of tea, Bigelow's I Love Lemon

F.  Favorite Color: Can an artist name a favorite color?  I paint in mostly blues and violets.
G.  Gold or Silver: Silver, but not fancy or expensive.  I have simple tastes.
H.  Height: 5'7"

I.  Instruments That You Can Play: None, but I can fiddle around with a paint brush.
J.  Job Title: Previously: Art Teacher to hundreds, now Artist, happy & relaxed
K.  Kids: A wonderful daughter & a wonderful son
L.  Live: East coast, South Jersey
M.  Mom's Name: Janice

N.  Nicknames: None, not ever.  Does my online ID count?...lvetopaint
O.  Overnight Hospital Stays: Yes, for this, and this, and that.  Can you see where I'm pointing?
P.  Pet Peeve: People who talk during a movie.  I can't stand that.  Sooooo rude.
Q.  Quote from a Movie: "Snap out of it!"  Cher in Moonstruck.
R.  Righty or Lefty:  I'm a righty.
S.  Sibling:  I have 3 brothers and a sister.  I'm the 4th in line.  We had one bathroom growing up.
T.  Time You Wake Up: Around 8 am.  Yes, I's sinful, but so lovely, especially in soft white sheets.
U.  Underwear:  I do, every day.
V.  Vegetables You Dislike: Rhubarb...I think.
W.  What Makes You Run Late:  Answering the phone right before I leave.
X.  X-Rays: Yes, refer to "O".
Y.  Yummy Food You Make: Lots, especially desserts.

Z.  Zoo Favorite Animal: Oh, that would be tigers!
So, there you have it!  To quote dear Pondside..."your turn!"

so happy it's Spring!

Happy Monday & Happy Spring!

I spotted these little lambs on my way home one day.
So very precious!
I've been back twice to take pictures.

Today, they were closer to the fence!


Mama did not like me so close & sounded the alarm.

The little one was still curious...

but then...just hungry!

Thanks for stopping by!
for more Monday Mosaics

my orange tree

In the sun room, my little orange tree is blooming like crazy.  
I don't remember having this many blossoms.  
The scent is heavenly!

The little oranges that follow don't have much of a chance to survive.

Someone thinks they are just little toys, waiting to be plucked
& bounced around the house.

Spring is just 17 days away!
