Bentley has been in this position since I woke up this morning. I don't know why I find this so cute. I just love when the cats hang out laying on their backs.

Good Morning MMC!!!! I'm just stopping by real quick to say hi!!! It seemed like I no sooner got up, that my sister and niece's got here wanting me to go shopping with them. I kinda figured that was going to happen. So I'm off to go shop with them. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!

Reading about those of you with snow in the forecast---I had a strange experience yesterday evening. I was out getting some yarn (for crochet) and turned on the car radio. They had somehow cued up an old forecast! It was saying snow flurries overnight "with little or no additional accumulation," lows around 19F, snow showers in the forecast with a high of 34F! Actually, it's been about 55F to 60F and sunny.

My car is in the shop having some damage repaired from the rear-ending a few weeks ago, and I'm driving a rental. It's a 2008 car with no place to plug in an MP3 player, so the car was silent. I found myself singing "The Christmas Waltz" to fill in the silence!

My mom got her a dress and when she started opening the package and saw it was clothes, she threw it across the room. Then she got in trouble for not being appreciative. Oh and for some reason, she swore that she was going to have an easter egg hunt as part of her birthday. So the Birthday Bunny came by and dropped off some eggs in the yard.
Tell her I said Happy Easter Birthday! Enjoy shopping!
