Monday's Musings



We have just enjoyed the most gorgeous weekend that anyone could ask for.  The weather was picture perfect, spring in all it's glory for sure!  
Since my brother was visiting I had the kids come over and join us Friday evening for dinner and some outside fun.  Having the big patio is wonderful, especially when the ground is still very saturated from all the recent rain.  Now, if the weather will just stay like this, our landscaper might be able to get the yard done.  
We have a new Granddog as of this past weekend.  Meet Wrangler!  Oh, my goodness, Wrangler will make the 3rd Corgi for our daughter and her family.  I'm assuming one must not be enough. ~laugh~ I guess if 1 is good, then 3 must be better.  But, thankfully, it's not my worry and they do breed and sell them and their male and female are getting older so Wrangler will step in when he gets older and I'm assuming they will likely be getting another female in the not so distant future. I'm just so glad it's them getting to enjoy all this fun and not me. ~chuckle~ But, I do have to admit, Wrangler is a cute, cute puppy, but puppies always grow up. ~what a shame~
I am a member of a study club and we meet monthly, September thru May.  It is a fun, fun group of ladies and each month we have a program.  This past week we met and our program was done by our local Pediatrician, whose wife just happens to be in our club.  His hobby is magic, so he did a program on magic.  He is  full of personality and so entertaining and the program was so interesting.
He involved the club members and his wife was his very able assistant.  He gave us some of the history behind magic and he also told and showed us how his tricks were done.  As he said, folks enjoy the "how" of magic as much as the actual magic, but I've never had a magician share the "how" so that was most enjoyable.
 We always end our meeting time with a delicious lunch and time of fellowship.  It's something that I look forward to every month.  Anytime a group of women get together, whatever the reason, there's generally a lot of laughter, talking and overall fun.

  1. I love the big patio and the covered patio looks so inviting. You have such a lovely new home. John and family have a Corgi that they got while in Slidell before Katrina. They make wonderful pets and are so smart. Queen Elizabeth has several. Only problem, they shed which drives Michelle crazy. Have a great week.

  7. Hi Lea, I too loved your photos! We had a great day here Saturday and then yesterday was pretty cool, setting us up for a cold/rainy week. I would love for the warm weather to stay for good. Hope you aren't having any issues with the tornadoes we keep hearing about. Hope you have a wonderful week!
    Hugs,
