A beautiful weekend !

We had a  very busy weekend, drove 100 miles to watch  #1 grandson play in a soccer tournament. The weather was beautiful for it , sunny and breezy with temps in the 80's. We stopped at a few yard sales along the way ,which is always fun. Then an awesome day at church Sunday ! This time 3 years ago I could not know that Jim would still be here and going strong able to enjoy these things together . God is good!

Happy Mother's Day ! I began celebrating Thursday when these lovely flowers arrived from my daughter in Baton Rouge La.

Yesterday my other daughter, granddaughter
 and myself  had a girls day and went to lunch and the spa for pedicures
today my hubby and I went to church and then to lunch
even though I did not have all my family together at one time, as I like to do, it was a wonderful Mother's Day and I know that I am blessed!

Meet Daisy !

I had not intended to get another pet so soon but when I saw this 12 year old needing a home and someone to love her as her owner had passed away. I knew I had to take her and I am so glad I did. She fits right in with our family and everyone loves her!

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.
