It's a Hot One!

Today is going to be 85 degrees! I was wishing for Spring but now it feels like Summer! lol Just can't win. I've been busy planning my oldest daughter's wedding reception. If anyone has some good appetizer recipes, please share. The kids are on Spring Break. So now I have a house full of kids and my grandson. It seems like everyone of my youngest son's friends are always here. At least I know what they are up to. Our house always seem to be the gathering spot for all my kids' friends. On the weekends, we are fighting for parking in front of the house because of all the cars. lol I am sure the neighbors love that. My youngest and his friends are cleaning the garage and making it into a clubhouse. That garage has been a clubhouse so many times. We had to put a stop to it years ago when my oldest son and daughter got into it and my son locked his sister in the garage. She was beating on the door, and her arm ending up going through the window. Getting stitches was not fun. So hopefully, this time it will be a better experience!
Well, I am off to take my grandson down the street to the beach. Hopefully, it wear him out a little bit!

Spring Swap

I join Char's (The Pickled Pepper Patch) spring swap and as usual, it was terrific. My partner was Julie . She sent so many wonderful handmade items. I hope she enjoys mine as I enjoy hers. She made a chicken wall hanging that I love. She sent a Easter table runner, an Easter stitchery pillow and many other wonderful things. Thank you so much Julie!

It's a May Wedding!

The sun is trying to peek out. It is always so rainy in April. My youngest started his baseball season. Unfortunately, the lack of practice due to rain is showing. Hopefully, they can win a couple of games this season. lol The year before last, they won one game at the end of the season! lol

My daughter has picked a wedding date already. It will be May 21. She seems excited. It will be a small wedding, nothing big. I wish we could really help financially, but since my husband retired, money has been extremely tight. This weekend, I am going to go through all my candles and get my website up. I know it probably will be hard to sell them with the economy but I won't know until I try. People seem to really like them so if I can just get started.
