Since my last post in February, much has happened. The busyness of life sometimes just interferes with blog postings..the posts end up on a” back shelf” …waiting for me to get back to it! I’m back to it now!
In February we made a last minute decision to “get out of Dodge”. Sick of the cold and snow, we drove to Florida for a quick 4 day stay there. Worth all the driving. The 4 days were wonderful. We did have one day of mostly rain. But otherwise sunny and 80. Even the rainy day was 70 and we still did a lot of eating and shopping. Stayed at one of the Disney resorts and just loved sitting by the pool at the table and enjoying the sun shine.
Did I mention we indulged in Ghirardelli Sundaes…totally. We made those lovely sundaes our lunch, enjoyed it so much. The next day we came back and ordered them all again that days lunch! Totally lovely, enjoying our ice cream as we sat at the outdoor cafe, enjoying the warmth and sunshine! (The photo below is one of our “ice cream lunches”)
In Michigan Spring has finally arrived. We have had many warm days…actually earlier than normal, so trees, etc have bloomed a bit early. It’s just lovely! We have even mowed the yard already, because of hubbies early fertilizing, grass grew quickly and thick!
We are still working on replacing all our trim with the wider white trim. We love the look more and more!
Hubby and I have been taking online courses, which has slowed the trim updating. We are loving our online classes, it sure stretches one’s mind! He is updating his teaching certificate and I’m taking a course in HTML5 and CSS programming.
Our love story that began in 1974 when my husband and I married, a love story that still continues! It grew to include 3 children, a son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and 6 grand children. We are thankful each and every day for the blessings we have experienced. A life we relish, we have grown through it’s hardships, and times of pain, and seek the sweetness of life. We love our children, our grandchildren, laughter, long walks, chatting over coffee, breakfast out, early mornings, sunrises and sunsets, roaring camp fires, traveling, board games and cards, watching movies, remodeling, working in the yard, sitting on the deck sipping fresh brewed ice tea with a splash of lemon. We love laughter, sarcasm, jokes, politics, learning, reading. Always pursuing and seeking, spiritual truth, knowledge, and growth through Christ.
