Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{1} Wow, last week was busy, busy, busy! I missed you gals, but sometimes life does get in the way of blogging. ~smile~
One of Hubby's sisters and her husband were here at the beginning of the week and we enjoyed a visit with them.
Don't you just love how they match my front door decor? They are some mighty sweet folks!  As I've stated before, we have family all over the country and wish so much that we were able to spend more time with all of them, but the long distances sometimes make it very difficult.

{2} Yesterday was Hubby's birthday.  We went to dinner on Saturday evening and had a quite celebration here yesterday. The older one gets, the quieter the celebrations become. ~grin~  His birthday dinner was topped off with White Chocolate Bread Pudding.  Oh, my, the two bites I had were sinful!

{3}Our little Granddaughter gave her Poppa the sweetest birthday present and I just knew that all the young Moms would love to see it.  
Isn't it just the cutest?  That is her precious little hand prints all over the bird house.  

{4} I am so proud of myself.  I am learning more and more about photo editing and am loving it.  I know, I'm still not near as "savvy" as some of you, but I have graduated from Picasa to Picnik and am not sure what I will graduate to after I've mastered Picnik. ~wink~ I love being able to do cute photos such as this.

{5} Rachel Ridge, from Home Sanctuary,was the speaker for our Ladies Spring Event at our church this past Thursday evening.  I will be blogging about this on Friday, but let me just say, if you are looking for a speaker for a ladies event, I HIGHLY  recommend Rachel. To hear more, check my blog on Friday.

{6} I played in the dirt a little past week.  I planted these 
 Inpatients and I will post pictures again in few weeks when they are "bursting forth" in these pots.  Take my word, these will be stunning shortly!
