This past week has flown by and I have been a bad blogger..it's been over a week since I posted anything. Jack is doing great..still sore..but he's healing well. We've just been busy doing the regular stuff..work, home...work..just like all of you I bet! I first want to say a big thanks to Cathy from acorn hollow blog for the super magazine I won. It came yesterday and I have been enjoying looking slowly through each lovely page. The weather has been so beautiful these past 2 days and that's the perfect time to sit outside and read a good mag..Thanks again Cathy!
It's been wonderful to have unusually warm weather for this time of year. It's nice to have sun streaming through the (sadly dirty!) windows. Squeak found her spot for the day..right in the path of the sun. Smart girl..no sunscreen needed for her!Our woman's organization..the Relief Society...was finally able to have our breakfast meeting that was canceled back in January. We had it at my house and turned out to be a fun time of fellowship, food and a good motivational speaker. The gathering began in the kitchen as all the ladies stopped to visit and greet one another. We had a good turnout for a Saturday morning. I was grateful that they all took the time out of a busy day to stop and enjoy each other's company and share breakfast.
It's easy to have alot to chat about sitting around the kitchen table...they are all involved in a deep conversation here while enjoying some chow.
They gathered in the diningroom and I'm not sure what's being said about the flowers!
The food was put out on the island and we had a good variety. Breakfast casseroles, pancakes, bread pudding, fresh fruit, blinis and some OJ to wash it all down...I love breakfast!
After eating and visiting we moved to the livingroom to hear our guest speaker. Everyone grabbed a chair and settled in.
Here is our speaker for the meeting. My friend Shay from work. She told us about setting goals, not giving up, and having no excuses when it comes to completing a goal. She's lost over 60lbs and is still on her journey. She has a large family...six kiddos...a hubby who works for the railroad and is gone alot, and she works full-time (plus call time which can add many extra hours to a 40hr. week!). She was nervous at first but I assured her that the women assembled today were all low key, fun, and eager for inspiration. Thanks Shay, we loved it! After some quick business everyone headed out. Great way to start the day!
The weather was just perfect this weekend. I walked around the yard checking out the spring flowers that are just peeking out of the dirt. The crocus is always the first to greet me...this year was no exception. Spring must be on it's way!
A final thing I found blooming in the garden. How about this gas cap from the mower that I lost 2 years ago. I looked everywhere for that sucker when I first lost it..everywhere. Unfortunately it was well hidden in the dirt and I had to purchase a new one. It just needed to be found in it's own time I guess!
