Week Ending surprise

John was home this past week end. On Saturday I had a list of things that had to be done and with the help of our son we had everything done by 12;30 . Just in time to pick up the boys who we staying over that night.

Then we get the phone call, " hi what are you doing?" I explain we are finishing up yard work and going for the boys soon. then ," Do you want company? " Of Course!!!!!!!

Yes Jackie, Josh and the girls were on their way, We were all very excited. So it was a very great afternoon and evening and night since the kids stayed up late. All 5 of them!!!! A big breakfast Sunday morning some more playing then everyone went their way. Boys went home, Jackie, Josh and family went home and John back to Long Island.

The house is quite again I sure miss the sound of kids laughing and cooking for everyone.

Spring Update

Well they say it is spring but we had snow the other day. On the other hand my lilacs have buds and hostas are pushing up. That is a good sign.

I have been very busy. I am always doing something with the house with my dad and working. I am hoping to straight on the back yard next week. I will enjoy it since John leveled it last fall.

My grand kids are great. I will See the boys in a few hours. I have their Easter stuff all ready. Last weekend I went to see the girls and brought their Easter stuff. I am very thankful that beside Easter goodies they all know the true reason for Easter. That makes the holiday more meaningful for me cause they are our future generation.

My dad is good. He goes to an adult day program three days a week, He just started but seems to like it. They do more than the senior center in town. I am planning a surprise 80Th birthday party for him in August. His birthday is in January but I figured this would be easier for everyone to come and so far they are, It will be fun\.

John is working on Long Island for a few weeks. I will be going down in a couple of weeks, We both still have family down there.

Well that is it. I am doing laundry and am getting a bit hunger, plus I have to cook dinner for my dad before I go to work.

Everyone have a Blessed Easter.

Me !! You know the poem Footprints in the Sand" well that is my life right now. I could not do this alone.
Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers.
