Hello everyone!  I hope you all are doing well.  Seems like the week  rushes by here and I haven’t made a post.  School is going along.  Maybe even finishing a little early.  I have been watching ebay like a crazy woman getting all our books for next year.  Our science book is on the way and that finishes up all we need.  YEAH!

Our weather cooled off a bit over the weekend-redbud winter.  When the redbuds are in full bloom it always cools off some.  We have been having a fire but today has nice.  Hubby has been working on putting the vinyl siding on the new room.  I helped him some after school.  There always seems to be so much to get done in the spring.

Friday, Dave and Jess took us all out to eat to celebrate mine and Dave’s birthday.  We had planned on doing a cookout at their house but the weather was too bad.  We ate at a really cool restuarant.  I think the name was Hillbilly Hideaway (I could be wrong on the name but it was something like that).  They serve you family style.  BIG bowls and platters of food.  3 types of meat and tons of veggies.  It was really good.  Thanks, Dave and Jess. Of course, Jess couldn’t resist telling the waitresses it was our birthday celebration so they sang happy birthday to us.  It was a lot of fun.  One of the waitresses and I were talking.  She has several grandkids.  She said “I like to watch them one at a time.  I can’t handle them all at once,they wear me out, drive me crazy”.  Sam looked at me with big eyes and said, “MawMaw, are you crazy?”  I hugged him and said, “Yes, Sam, I think I am!”  I know I’m crazy for all them.  My children and my grandchildren are so important to me.  I can understand though what she was saying.  They sure do have lots more energy than I do.

Well, I guess that’s about all that’s going on here.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

When Dave & Jess were up for the weekend, we all went riding in the “bumpy” truck.  This is one of Daniel’s favorite things to do when he comes to our house.  It also is one of Grace’s favorite things to do.  She took this beautiful picture of the sunset. 

Yesterday, we went to a friend’s house.  Her sister has thornless blackberries and she had said we could come and pick.  We picked about 1 gal.  They are very easy to pick.  No thorns-I really like that.  We then went back to my friend’s house and had a cookout.  We had hamburgers, pinto beans, cole slaw and watermelon.  It was a really nice day.  We got 3 pints of blackberry juice and 4 pts of blackberry jam, plus saved back about a quart to eat. 

I have some aprons to deliver today, then we will be going over to the Horn’s for a visit.  After that, the girls have piano lessons.  I need to get one more apron made before we leave so I guess I better get busy.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
