Behind schedule….

again!!    I can just find all kinds of places to go now that the weather has moderated and there is not a foot of snow on the ground.  I have been running errands this morning .  It feels so good to be able to get outdoors in the fresh air.  I am loving that feeling.

I have mentioned a time or two the non-profit organization for behavioral disorders that my niece in WV co-founded.   http://www.mainstreamservices.org/  My brother in law, her dad, has been making games and toys for the residents of his daughter’s facility for several years.  I have to show you what the latest things  are that Hugh has been making.  They are called ‘dancing men.’

I think these toys are pretty adorable and I think Hugh is pretty adorable.  Of course that might  be because he has been my ‘brother’ for well over 50 years!  The dancing man he is holding has been completed and those on his lap are in various stages of development.  Kudos to Hugh!!

I would love it if you could spare a minute to click on the link above and read a bit about this great organization that my niece is in charge of.  I am very proud of her.  My sister and brother in law, her parents, are very involved with this organization.

Have a wonderful week.  Stay safe and be happy!!
