Sunday afternoon with Nanny and Bud...

Sarah and Bud...so cute.

Linda and Miss Mollie

Sunday afternoon we went over to Steve's parents home for dinner, and to visit. The weather was beautiful, so we ate outside. It was such a relaxing afternoon. Linda gave us a book, she had made of all of her famous recipes. I was sooo happy to receive this. Linda, is such a wonderful cook! Now I will have the recipes for her famous hot fudge, peanut brittle, scone recipe etc. I only wish I could be as good of a cook as her. We decided to bring Mollie so Linda could see her. We keep trying to talk them into getting a dog. :) So far, Bud has kept to his firm NO! :)

The Spring Cleaning bug has hit me. Thank goodness! I am feeling productive today. I am planning on finishing the bathroom closet this morning. I started last night, and needed a little break. I am not sure how in the world that closet got sooo bad! Does anyone else have the spring cleaning bug? :)

Steve and Ben...looking like twins!

Getting ready to leave for Tucson.

Sean, and Ben

Yesterday Steve, Ben and I got up early, and went to a good friends graduation, from the Cota academy in Tucson. It was a great day! We sure are proud of Sean for doing such a wonderful job! We hadn't been down there since, Ben's graduation, a few years ago. It brought back a lot of memories. After the ceremony we all went out to eat at Cracker Barrel. Then headed back home. We had a great day together.

I love spring break! I have really enjoyed not being on a schedule. We got home from California Monday evening. We sure had a fun time while we were there. The boys weren't able to join us this time. Sarah brought 2 friends. We had so much fun playing on the beach, eating, singing, laughing, talking, dog watching, and of course taking advantage of the beautiful scenery. I love the beauty of the ocean. Now that we are home, we are having late mornings, and late nights. :) Last night we went to pizza, and ice cream. We decided to stop by the pet store after dinner. This is a weekly event for us, it seems like. There were some of the cutest dogs there!!! There was a little cockapoo that looked just like Miss Mollie! He was a little boy though. I about had myself convinced he needed to come home with us. :) I gathered my senses quickly though. :) Last week when we were in there Nate wanted to take home a bulldog! We are animal lovers! Today is going to be another "no" schedule day for us. I love it!

a strawberry!

These aren't the berries from my yard, but from the web. :)

About 2 weeks ago I planted flowers peppers, tomatoes, and strawberries. I love going out daily to check on them. To me they are beautiful! At the end of last week I saw my first strawberry! I was thrilled! I have a picture I want to post, but Steve has the laptop that the picture was downloaded on. That's OK though...I am going to post it later. :) Yes, I am proud! :)

This morning is the typical Monday morning madness. Laundry, picking up etc. I love the weekends, so it makes Monday worth the added domestic bliss! :) I am off to fold laundry.

Happy to blog, and the dreaded.. :)

It feels so good to sit down, and blog. I think it is spring fever that has kept me away from the computer, and out doors more. I am glad to be back, and blogging.

Today is the day! Yeppers it is! :) I am doing the one thing that I really don't care to do. The one thing I dread! The one thing that seems to multiply in our house. You guessed it...laundry! Today I am taking a different approach. No showering until it is done. This way, I can't talk myself into doing something that sounds tons better! The windows are open, the birds are chirping, and really....it isn't to bad. :)
