Yucky feeling....

Wednesday Hodgepodge

1.  Thursday marks the first day of spring...to celebrate would you rather plant a garden or go for a walk in the woods? Would either of those activities be possible on Thursday where you live?

Go for a walk in the woods.  Thursday's weather is supposed to be nice-key word is supposed.

2. When did someone last spring something on you? (orwhen did you last spring something on someone?)
It would have to be when daughter's boyfriend asked my approval to propose to daughter. I knew they really loved each other, but did not see this coming.

3.  We often think of spring as a time for new beginnings. What's something you'd like to start doing this spring?

Reading my Bible more and really studying the scriptures.

4. Where do you like to sit in a movie theatre? When did you last sit there, and what were you watching?

In the middle section.  Oldest daughter and I went to see the movie, The Help.  It has been awhile, hasn't it?

5. When you meet someone for the very first time, wha…

Weekend Rewind....


A blur.....
Friday evening, hub and I planned on opening up The Coffee Shop for our community to watch our high school girls play in the championship game in Richmond, Virginia.  We had our computer hooked up to the television so all that wanted to watch could.  Daughter had texted later that evening saying her plane had landed in Charlotte and she would be home on Saturday.
Saturday, we had around 40 people come and watch the basketball game.  It was a beautiful day but the game started at 12 so we all knew we would not be indoors all day.  There was much clapping and cheering for our girls high school team!  For the first time in our school's history our Chilhowie High School Girl's Basketball Team are now State Champions.

The weather was gorgeous-already mentioned, huh?
I even saw some greenery popping through.

Thirty days has September, April, June, and November All the rest have thirty-one This year, February was the longest one!!!

Honestly, thought February would never end.  Snow, blistery cold, days missed from school, slipping and sliding everywhere....went on and on and on.  It was so hard to try and revive...days were gloomy and I just couldn't get back on track.  One day while complaining about the weather, a friend told me to stop complaining and just admire God's work.  Never thought about that-I mean I thank God for all things but never for the cold weather or snow. I must say this person shed a new light me.

Hub and I traveled to watch the girls's high school team play in the regional basketball championship game on Saturday evening.  I was so excited to watch our girls play; I had really missed going to high school games.  I was able see people I haven't seen in years-one in particular was daughter's AAU coach and his wife.  Gosh it has been at least 6 years…
