Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. April showers bring May flowers or so the saying goes. Are you blooming where you're planted as we begin the month of May?

I feel like I am in full bloom!

2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being no big deal, and 10 being full scale panic, rank your fear of spiders.

I rank myself a 2-not very fearful.

3. May is National Salad Month (who knew???)...besides lettuce, what are two must-have ingredients in your favorite salad?

I love salads!!   The two ingredients, besides lettuce, would be croutons, and carrots.

4. I mentioned on my blog last week that my Daughter1 will be moving to Washington State after she is married. Of the following sites in the Northwest, which would you most like to see in person-Crater Lake (Oregon), Seattle (Washington), Vancouver (British Columbia), San Juan Islands (Washington),  Mt. Rainer (Washington) Oregon Coast (Oregon), Mt. St. Helens (Washington), or Olympic National Park (Washington)

Crater Lake-Oregon-just to see the water  heard it was a deep blue and …

Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. April 22nd is Earth Day. Are you inspired by nature? In what way?

Yes-I forgot to take the time to see or hear God's creation.  Life can get so busy we forget to take the time to really listen to the birds or the wind blowing; we forget to really look at the beauty of the rose or feel the grass beneath our feet.
There are moments when I just sit down and take in all of nature's wonders.

2. Down to earth, four corners of the earth, move heaven and earth, not have an earthly chance, or salt of the earth...which earthly idiom have you most recently encountered? Explain.

Recently down to earth.

3. Share one piece of advice you might give a newly engaged couple.

Hum....I see you and I are both thinking about this-Congratulations again!

First piece of advice would be to Put God First and Your Spouse Second;Secondly Keep Dating-before children this will be easy but after kids still plan a date even if it is just when the kids are in bed you watch a movie together

4. When did you last e…

Weekend Rewind...

A fun-filled weekend!!  I wish it would have lasted a little longer.

Daughter #2 came home on Friday.  Still some much needed studying to do!  I keep telling her it will not last forever.

Daughter #1 purchased a house on Friday.  Woohoo!!  She is super excited and so am I.  She works from 8am-8pm Monday-Friday at the Pharmacy and form 8am-3pm on Saturday and she will go in after hours (many times) to fill a prescription.  I know she is tired, and I tell her this won't last forever.  She loves her job and I am so proud of her!!

Saturday after daughter got off work we (both daughters and I) went shopping!!  We left Dad to mow and spruce up the yard.  Sometimes us girls just need to go shopping-for no apparent reason-just shop and talk and eat and shop and talk!  I always get daughters an Easter Basket-that's what mothers do even when they are 26 & 24.  As we shopped the girls were looking at other things and wanted them and the conversation was going like …

Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind..

A gorgeous, sunshiny, warm weekend in my neck of the woods.

My church held an Easter Egg Hunt this Saturday.  We had over 3000+ eggs to hide.  I began hiding eggs at 11 for the children.  The egg hunt began at 1:00.
Many people came...

there was free food/drinks

many prizes to give away--tickets were inside some of the eggs and you exchanged your ticket for a prize

and of course the Easter Bunny!

There was three different age groups:  the 4 and under

the 5-7 age group

and the 8 -10 and up age group.

What took hours to hide the eggs- ended in a few short minutes!!  

I had to have my pic with the Easter Bunny!!

After the egg hunt, I went to watch little man play T-Ball.  This is such a fun age to watch.  All run around and kick the dirt and have a great time.  There is no harsh yelling at any umpires-heck there are no umpires with T-Ball!  All get to bat and no one is ever out!  Just to watch them try to field the ball and they think they have the ball in their glove…

Weekend Rewind...

Let's Play Ball

Little man is playing Tee Ball this year for the first time.  Opening day was yesterday.  Even though the sun was shining, it was a chilly start to the day.
Decided to put sweat shirts on -getting colder. Each parent and grandparent stood shivering waiting to hear the name of their child or grandchild announced over the speaker to run on the field.
Shouts of whoops and claps as each child ran on the field.  For a minute my heart stopped-where was my youngest daughter? Oh, that's right she is now in grad school.  Where did the time ago? As I wipe a tear from my eyes.  It seems like yesterday I was watching her play Little League Softball.
The Tee Ball Teams played first.  All kids get to bat and play.
Little man always waves at me and yells for me to look.   He was saying-Look I am on first base.  Yes, Mammow is there looking and giving the thumbs up signal.
I know some might not agree with me, but I like the rules of Tee Ball.  All get a chance to play and hav…
