Who's the "She"? Well it's my Granddaughter, Summer. She's a freshman and this is her first year of art and she had her drawings and paintings in the art show at the High School tonight. It was also the academic awards too...she and her older sister both got academic awards tonight....a good night all around!

My previous post was weather whiney as usual! Today was sunny and cool, but not as bad as Saturday. I have this picture that my daughter-in-law, Amy, took of my Granddaughter Sophie...they were at a tulip farm in Portland and I thought it just screams Spring! I had to share it!

The past week has been the Spring we've been waiting for...warm temps, a bit of rain, good "cook out" weather. I mowed the yard for the first time this year and basked in the wonderful cut grass smell and enjoyed the ride on the mower too. Our Granddaughters, Addy and Lexi, came by on Thursday in the afternoon and they stayed for dinner..along with their Daddy. We had yummy grilled chicken and a crisp salad, fresh asparagus and even homemade icecream. Lexi came into the kitchen and said: "It looks like a party in here!". Yes, we even celebrated by eating outdoors. It was 82 degrees Thursday. Enter Saturday.

Today was "National Go Barefoot Day". I'm guessing we were suppose to go barefoot all day. I work in an operating room all day and, trust me on this,....You do not ever want to work in an operating room without shoes and socks on. In fact, it's policy in our hospital that everyone has to wear shoes and socks and no crocks are allowed either. No holes allowed or I guess you could say "All holes barred!".....But in the tradition that we are up for anything, I asked for a quick photo op at the end of the day to celebrate. Our usual way of celebrating anything is to have a food fest so this was much more healthy, easy and gave everyone a smile to end the day! So here are my working "Sistas"...bearing their "soles" to you! Hope your day was a barefoot, fun and smiley day!

Did you happen to have Friday off of work? Did you sleep in? Did you clean house? Did you put away all your Easter decorations? Did you run errands? Did you take a walk in the woods and find flowers blooming in a creek?

We tried to put as much as we could into our quick trip out West. The area is so beautiful...the air so clean and fresh. The trees have this cool mossy covering on all the limbs. The smell of cedar was always in the air. We visited a park not too far from the kid's home that had a fun playground for the Grandkids and also rose gardens that were just beginning to come into bloom. The view was great of downtown Portland.
