Easter decorating

Normally after Valentines day, I put out a few things for St. Patrick's day. Because it's followed so closely by Easter this year I just went right into putting out the Easter stuff.

The  red truck that I bought last fall has taken up permanent residence on top of my fake fireplace. A little something different in it each season/holiday makes it fun all year long.

I also hung my banner that I made last year.

Instead of spreading everything out all over the house, quite a few things went right here on the shelves.

This is a table that sits near my front door. I've made it  a habit to drop my keys here when I get home. It's saved me a lot of headaches trying to figure out where I left my keys. I usually put a different dish here to drop my keys into.

The cave got a few decorations as well. This is on the wall at the bottom of the steps.

And this is over my desk.

I still have the tote with the rest of the decorations sitting in the living room so I'll likely put a few more things out but this is what I've done so far.

Plans change

 I had made an appointment to see about getting new hearing aids. One of mine doesn't work at all any more and the other won't charge all the way. It's only a matter of time before it dies as well. I was supposed to go yesterday. They called last Friday and left a message that they wanted me to come in at 3:30 instead of 4:00. I never called them back but I figured  no problem I'll just go earlier. Yesterday morning I missed another call from them. I called back expecting them to just tell me to come earlier. Instead she said they needed to reschedule because they were going to be out of the office until late. My new appointment isn't until March 18th. Probably by then the one good hearing aid will have died. I'm thinking of just seeing if I can get an appointment somewhere else.

I spent most of the morning playing on the computer and working on a card for Presley.

Since I didn't have to go to my appointment I went to Walmart instead to pick up a refill on my prescription and do a little shopping.

After that it was back home to work on some other crafty projects.

The good the bad and the ugly

The good
I've been getting lots of happy mail recently. It sure has made my day to find these in my mailbox. Thanks to all of you who have sent these.
The bad
Saturday it was snowing and this time there was accumulation. Not a lot but enough to cover the ground. I was supposed to go to a surprise birthday party but chose to skip it because of the weather. One minute it was doing nothing and the next it was snowing so hard you could barely see across the street
The ugly
In the back of our parking lot at work there is one of those drop off bins for clothes and shoes. Some people seem to think it's a garbage dump. When I was leaving the one day someone had left a mattress, an artificial Christmas tree and a bag of who knows what. Drives me nuts. The side of the bin clearly says clothes and shoes.

 Jimmy celebrated his 60th birthday and they asked me to do the cake. Who's Jimmy? I don't know but apparently he hangs out at the Moose Club enough that they wanted to celebrate his birthday. When she ordered the cake and I asked her what she wanted on it she didn't really know but said it was for a guy so nothing girly.
