I have quite a few more Mother’s Day Cards to make!

 

ON ANOTHER NOTE:

I thought I was done with Mother’s Day Cards…I’m Not!

I will probably have a few more to make…I am involved in 2 groups

of wonderful women, from my church!

My Women’s Bible Study Group, we meet every Tuesday Afternoon.

We meet, take prayer requests and pray, discuss our study, then watch

a video to get us going for the following week! Very uplifting!

 I also meet with a Group of Women from

a couple of churches in the area, we get together every Thursday Evening

to knit and crochet and socialize and they we take prayers requests,

and we pray for each others needs.

God has Blessed me with these Wonderful Women!

I am keeping myself busy…that’s a good thing.

 

Until the next Post…Blessings to you ALL!

ON ANOTHER NOTE!

Happy Day after Easter!

Do you have a Candy Hangover?

I was good this year…most the candy I bought, I sent to the Grand’s!

I did buy Mr. Hubster a bag of those individually wrapped,

 Mini Reeses White-Chocolate  Peanut Butter Cups.

You kind of eat less when you have to unwrap those teeny things!!!

That’s my story and I am sticking to it!

Truth be told, they aren’t my favorite…mine are the Mini Cadbury Eggs!

I was good this year…I bought NONE!

Earlier in the season, I bought him his Jelly Beans, 1 bag limit!

He will Thank me later!

I hope you all had a Great Easter…I was a little under the weather,

nothing serious, just not my best. I think its just part of my body reacting

to all the activity it got last week getting the gardening done!

I figured, I’d break speed and get the worst done before we get the Summer Heat.

I love working outside in the Early Spring and Late Autumn!

It takes it all out of me come Summer!

I just go out in early mornings, if any weeding need be done!

I do go out, in the early morning and early evening, to water too!

For the first time, last year, we grew our lettuce, green beans,

yellow beans and 3 different tomatoes.

This year we are growing the lettuces again, green beans and sugar peas.

I bought the 2 tomato plants, 1 basil, 1 rosemary and the 1 mint!

I also did get some flowers (annuals) for my hanging baskets in my Gazebo!

Until the next Post…Blessings for Grace and Wisdom to you ALL!
