Revealing of Stephanie's Teacup and mug exchange

This is the lovely package sent to me by Margaret. She really spoiled me by sending me a teacup snack set and a Canada mug along with other goodies. I am so glad to have made a new friend in her!

This is the mug that I received from Oliva. It is a cheers mug from Boston. She included a variety of coffees and other gifts. I am happy to have a new friend in her!

A beautiful weekend the Lord gave us !

We had a wonderful Spring weekend! The temperature was in the 50's at night and sunny 70's in the day time. We had weekend guest, Jim's bother and Sister-in-law. We went out for breakfast on Saturday morning, then to the city for some shopping and my Grandson's 2 soccer games in the afternoon and then to a seafood restaurant for catfish for dinner. Sunday morning I made a country breakfast at home and we rode out to the beach. It was a lovely day for the beach not hot but sunny and pleasant! The white sand, blue water and blue sky were beautiful and relaxing! Such a beautiful world the Lord has given us to enjoy!

A sad day !

Last night Ellie passed away. She was 11 years old and that is about the expected life for a Cavilier King Charles Spaniel. She was a wonderful part of our family and I will miss her very much. I am thankful that she went peacefully, did not suffer or have to be put down. I already miss her following me from room to room and getting in my lap to cuddle everytime I sit down.

It was a happy Easter !

It was a wonderful Easter weekend! I had one daughter and her children here Saturday and the other daughter, her family, my brother's, nephew and friends here Sunday. I was so busy that I did not get photos but it was very nice. I feel very blessed! Even though it rained all weekend and we had to have the Easter egg hunt inside , I think everyone had a good time!

A fun day trip !

On our day trip to see my Oral Surgeon yesterday we traveled along the coast awhile





and along the back roads awhile

I cannot decide which way I like the best, they are both beautiful!

We usually always go by our favorite place to eat oysters on the half- shell!
This little place has been in the same location for 60 years

There is usually a wait but so worth it! A few of our "simple pleasures"!

Loving this weather and my new decor!

I found this for my fireplace this past weekend and thought it added more of a spring look to my living room, but it clashed with my striped sofa so I covered it with a white bedspread and added 2 pillows from one of the bedrooms! I am loving the new look! Spring is coming, it is sunny and 60 degrees now, suppose to make it to 80 this afternoon!
