I think Spring has arrived, finally!! We are getting spring showers and some of flowers are trying to get green. Little pansies are up and are in bloom, which looks so pretty among the lifeless shrubbery around the house!
Yesterday, my dear friend and I attended a really cool Bible study in another small town. It was so worth the time and mileage to go there, to hear the Word of God and worship with like believers!!We hope to go again and spend some valuable time together!
Tuesday is a big day for us, lots of dr appointments on my day off. You know you are getting old when this topic is a main topic!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We are planning a garden this year, last year we didn't and missed it! Are you planning a garden and if so what will you plant this summer? We will do potatoes, tomatoes, and cukes for sure. Blessing!

Happy Easter everyone! Christ has Risen! What a wonderful day Gordon and I had today. We went to church this morning and Pastor Ron had a great sermon. Then at lunch time Erika and Trevor came for lunch/ dinner. Erika made pretzel strawberry dessert, all I can say is YUM!!!! We had a wonderful visit and got caught up on things. We live about 40  minutes from them, but hardly see or talk with them. We live a busy life, which stinks most of the time when it comes to family! Time flies!!! Erika and I are planning a trip to see family in Aug. in Missouri, it will be so much fun as we will take with Kurt and Kate's 3 younger girls with us to meet cousins! Oh I can hear the girls giggling now with all the cousins!! Our dinner was a Ham with scalloped potatoes ( from the pioneer woman site), apple salad and 2 bean salad. God's blessings to you all!!

Sunday is Easter and we got 20 inches of snow yesterday!!! That seems so strange and driving home yesterday was scary!!! The highway dept. hadn't plowed enough and so the highway was white , everything was white. Couldn't see the lines down the middle or sides of the road!!
Anyway, back to Easter. We're having dinner here with our daughter and son-in-law. I'm making "the pioneer woman's recipe of scalloped potatoes and ham, bean salad and apple salad. Making some new kind of rolls, maybe, if I get my act together. Erika is bringing dessert! She makes the best desserts!!!
What are you making for Easter??? Ham or lamb or turkey or beef? My mother-in-law always made leg of lamb with mint jelly!!! Do you have an egg hunt with the kids??? We never did the hunt just dyed the eggs. I might dye some eggs, maybe not, I have a little too much on my plate for the weekend. No pun intended! Christ has risen and that is what we celebrate, I pray you will also! Blessings!

April snows

We have been fooled again with April showers being April snow. It's about 14 inches on the ground and that's a lot for this time of year! I will try to get the pictures here, but no clue what's wrong with the site and photos not showing up! Blessings!!
