I think this picture says it all!

Well, this was sure easy! This is a picture of a lovely and talented lady in our church and her gorgeous granddaughter on her wedding day two weeks ago. When I saw this picture the word "beautiful" immediately came to my mind. Isn't that just the sweetest look they are sharing? Cathy, the grandmother, decorated the venue for her granddaughter's wedding which happened to take place in a cotton warehouse. Yes, that's right and I wish you could have seen it. Cathy transformed it into the most gorgeous setting complete with chandeliers. This was Cathy's first grandchild to get married so that added to the "specialness" of this picture.
Since we live right on top of a pond, the likelihood of my having an encounter with a snake is probably above average. ~yikes~
C - Cleaning the front and back porches and readying them for spring
H - Happy "big" birthday to the hubs
Bridget gave this t-shirt to her Daddy for his 70th on Monday. He thought it was pretty cute but reminded her that he has had one hip replaced so he is lacking "one" original part. I suppose you can get a t-shirt with most anything on it these days. This was sure a good gift for a man that pretty much has any and everything else.

Part of my gift to Tommy was a long weekend trip to Memphis to "do all things" Memphis. We've been through Memphis many, many times but never took the time to stop and take in any of the sights.
After dinner we headed back to our hotel and enjoyed some nice piano music being played in the hotel lobby. We visited a while and then bid each other adieu and after a good night's rest we headed towards home yesterday morning. I think Tommy would say that it was a great way to celebrate and begin his birthday week. We'll probably celebrate most of the week because "3 score and ten" is worthy of a week long celebration. ~don't you think~

Well, I think a certain someone's 70th birthday might qualify. I'll say more about this.....
2. What's a favorite made up word from your childhood or a favorite from your children's childhood? Does your family still use the word today? If there's a story behind the origin please share.
I have been using the made up word "skoochi" for most of my life. I would say it to my parents when I wanted them to hold me tightly or snuggle me. I still use it to this day.
3. Will you be doing any spring cleaning now that the season is upon us? I read here a list of 15 quick (under one hour) spring cleaning tasks. They were-
clean out a drawer, vacuum furniture, whiten tile grout, dust the nooks and crannies you don't get to year round, degrease kitchen cabinets, wipe down walls, go behind furniture, wipe down ceiling fans, vacuum the mattress, clean the range hood, wash baseboards, shine the stainless steel, clean out vents, tackle the windows, and wipe down gadgets
Of the fifteen 'quick' tasks listed which two most need doing at your house? Will you do them?
Most of this took place around here about 2 weeks ago. Thankfully our house is still new enough that it hasn't been necessary to do some of these just yet. And, doubtfully our cabinets will ever need degreasing as I fry absolutely nothing. That's right, it smells up the house and makes a huge mess as far as I'm concerned. There's too many other ways to prepare food. ~chuckle~
4. A favorite movie set in Paris or New York?
There are several set in NY that are favorites but the first one to come to mind was BIG with Tom Hanks.
5. What's put a spring in your step this month?
The arrival of warmer weather and readying our porches and patio for spring and summer. I love getting the ferns and other plants potted. They make for such a warm and welcoming look!
6. Did you ever want to be a teacher? Why or why not?
No, can't say that I have. I probably do not have the patience for teaching. ~wink~
It would definitely be lavender. My Grandmother introduced me to Lavender when I was just a little girl and I've loved it ever since. I have it in essential oil, in diffusers,lotion, soap and room spray. I'm not much into florals in food but that may be just because I'm not that familiar with it.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
