Hi Nellie

I hear you have a birthday coming up soon. That should be fun.

Oh the Wedding mother of the bride dress shopping. Isn't it fun? I was able to wear the same one for Jennifer and Jeremys and then for Holly's I couldn't find a thing. I ended up ordering one online at Norstroms and was so happy that it fit. It matched the colors perfectly except it cost a lot more than I wanted to spend.

I do need to get my Easter stuff out to decorate but on Saturday I have to get our taxes done and on Sunday we have to serve at Church so we are going to have a busy weekend.
I am glad your kitty stopped bringing you all those presents. Our cats are indoor only so we never get any presents. but that is okay.

I can't wait to hear all about the new direction that the Lord has sent you in.

Have a great evening!
Love you
Janet

Hi Nellie, I am sorry for your neck problem, I will be praying for quick healing! I always enjoy your TT list! I loved ET, and haven't thought about it in a long time! Loved all of your pretties, I am at a standstill with my spring decorating, I must get going or spring will soon be over. LOl.
Enjoy this time Sunday with your family and let them just spoil you rotten.lol.
Hugs,
Sue

Took a minute this Friday eve of our vacation to check out my friends :) Thankful WITH you for the good things in your life & praying FOR you re. your aches & pains & finding a great dress for the wedding.

I'll have a lot of catching up to do when I get home - including yard work, I'm sure. Spring decorating will be also high on my agenda.

#1. I so hope your neck is better! My chiropractor surely helped me when I messed up my back lifting the garage door. I pray you are better. As for the pollen, I know what you mean! I have had some "headaches" from it around my sinus areas.
#2. I'm so thankful you are able to type. I was worried when I hadn't seen your post in a day or so.
#3. I'm glad Molly has "returned" to herself, ha!
#4. Now you have me worried. (Was that the e-mail I was suppose to get?)
#5. I can hardly wait. You made me wait, ha! I wanted to give you your birthday gift early!
#6. ET Home ->
#7. I will wear springy clothes, I promise!
#8. Isn't it great to buy things you enjoy!! I went out and bought myself something too....a garage door opener, lol. They are to put it in tomorrow (Saturday!)
#9. Since I have to "decorate" my classroom, I don't do much at home, since it's just me.
#10. Time with friends and family is a blessing from the LORD!
#11. Michele, my friend at school, brought me a serving of homemade beef-aroni. She is so sweet!
#12. Children are your blessing from GOD.
I love you all very much,
Susan

Well, we just seem to have several things in common. I, too, have been going to the Chiropractor for a neck pain -- not that either of us is "a pain in the neck!" :)LOL!!! I even have an appt. with a Massage Therapist-Accupunturist. That happens on Wed., so I'll let you know about that. The other commonalities are some similar purchases from Michael's -- I've been shopping their aisle of "shabby chic" decor items that are getting super-cheap right now. Great minds looking for great buys my friend.

Dearest Nellie,

I sure hope that your birthday celebration was all you had hoped for, my friend. I can bet that your family spoiled you and rightly so. I hope also that your neck and back have responded well to the treatments and that you are feeling great by now. Bless your heart. Don't you just hate those recurring nuisances that happen as we age? I sure do. It seems they are related to your yard work somehow.

Glad your kitty is settling down on the killing spree. On Jennifer's 16th birthday I was preparing for a party for her and very busy and our cat was about to swallow a tiny bird whole I think. The kids came screeching in the house and the next thing I know I am prying a scared to death bird out of his mouth. The bird was wounded but not dead so I had to make a trip to a wildlife museum with my kids to get it all taken care of. Oh bothers, just what I needed on that busy day. Funny thing though, many years later that is the part of the day best remembered. I was probably in complete denial that my baby was turning 16, don't you think? Anyway old Midnight use to bring lots of offerings, especially when Jim was out of town. I would open the door and never knew what I would find on the mat. Ugh!

Your spring decor is looking very nice. It is fun to kind of be done with the six months of decorating for various events isn't it? I keep all my springy, summery things out until fall and I enjoy the stability of it all. I want to get a new bedding set for our guest room and a fun chandelier for our bedroom but that is about if for the next several months. I think I'll turn my attention to the outside soon. Being vexed by the deer puts a damper on it though.

Well I have prattled on long enough! Last week was extremely busy and now I have a boatload of stuff to do today too as I spend the morning at a funeral. But couldn't do a thing until I wrote you a note, I haven't even changed out of my skirt yet! Love you sweet friend and again I pray your birthday celebration was the best.
So glad you had time with our sweet Becky too.

Love B
