Good Monday Morning Sweet Peas,
Hope your weekend was pleasant!
or restful, fun, peaceful or
productive at least!! lol
Ours was a mixed bag...............
a lil productive, a lil bit sad, a lil bit lazy,
and a whole lot wonderful!
Since we were feeling a bit sad over Joey,
working is like therapy for me, so we cleaned
the porch Friday evening, and we watched a
movie "Where the wild things are", it is a
kiddie movie, but cute, but something didn't
compute with me, I didn't really get the gist
of it, course, maybe there was no gist!! lol
or maybe it was just my sad mood.
It made me cry too!
Before the movie hubby ran to Publix and
got a Keylime/mango pie to drown our
sorrows in!! lol
It is a truly wonderful pie, might I say!!
I realized that this too, is something I just
have to trust the Lord with, Joey's care and
keeping. Hard not to worry about her, she
is like a grandchild and even tho, she was a
handful and quite grumpy and mean at times,
you grow to love them, just like your children.
Thank the Lord for prayer and knowing that
he is concerned about what concerns us!
That is a huge comfort!
If we didn't have Molly we probably would
have taken her, but it is a real hassle with
the 2 of them, as Molly is terrified of Joey,
and Joey is fascinated with Molly in a good
way, but also loves to play chase the cat!!
Then they get into scrapes and it is just all
very annoying to say the least, and we can
deal with that on a very short term basis
but for 10 years or more is a bit more
than we can care to think about.
So I have been covering her and her new
family in prayer and that is helping my heart,
but you gotta get the grief out,that is just
the way it is, cause she did live with us for
almost a year and has been a visitor quite
often throughout the last year and a half.
So naturally, we would be attached and
My pretty lilies are blooming again!!
Saturday was sort of a lazy day and we sat
out on our nice clean porch, and talked
about some projects that we could do that
didn't require $$$!!
We also started rereading "Heaven is for real",
it really is such a great story.
We really need to do some repairs on the
back of our Garden shed, it has water damage
and dry rot, and we do have some cedar, and
wood so think we have enough to do the job,
and then after that, we can put the new roof on.
We have had the roof tiles for years every since
we got the new roof on our house. The old shed
roof is fine, but it will just look so much nicer
when it matches our house.
I have to say, it was fun just to plan a project,
I just needed that for some reason. So I am
looking forward to it. Don't know if hubby is
looking forward to it quite as much as me
since he will have to do more of the work! lol
But once he gets going he usually has fun
with it too, and always does a great job.

Aren't they sooo pretty!!
Sunday was just an awesome day at church,
the message and the music was just great,
better than usual for some reason, and they
changed the order of service, but it was nice.
Only thing is they had the choir sitting in
the pews, one of which is where we usually
sit, so we did get bumped out of our usual
spot, but oh well, we probably needed
to be moved anyway! lol
Sunday Evening was our Easter Contata.
But it was not your traditional Easter
Contata that we were expecting, but
we truly enjoyed it. It was more like
a concert, and we loved all the songs,
cause they were all familiar worships
songs, so it was a wonderful time of
worship and praise to our Lord.
Also, we were so blessed to see a lil
gal, that went to our church when she
was young, and moved away and has
been living in Canada for years,but she
is back in the area now, so it was so great
to see her, she is 42 now!
She looks the same to me,
So that was a lovely surprise!!
I know her Mom must be beside herself
with joy, as she has been widowed
quite a number of years now, and it
is so nice to have your children close
by.....she does at least have 2 sons
fairly close by thankfully!
Then we came home to watch our Pastors
on TV and eat Cranberry Chicken Salad,
um um, they are just one of the best
salads I have every had!! Truly!!

You have to like a sweet salad
This morning we had breakfast on the
porch and it was so cool and lovely,
and it is an absolutely breathtakingly
beautiful day outside.
we started on our shed project this morning
by taking down some brush and a small tree
that is in the way, next we can move pots
and other stuff out of the way as well,
so we survey the damage, and make a
plan for demolishion!! lol
Not the whole building............
just the bottom of the back!! lol
Compliments of womans' Day or Better Homes and Gardens,

Well, that is all my news for today!!
Hope all is well in your corner of the
world, and that your day is sweet!!
Nice to have you visit, and even
sweeter to hear from you!
Love, Hugs, and
Happy Easter Hugs,
