That sounds great! What time do you want us all over?

You are so right about time flying when you are not at work! It really happens when you retire, LOL! Why is it that we have to use our free time that is supposed to be for relaxing and having a vacation for catching up on other work? What a cycle!

The ceremony was very special. The boys were excited and so were the parents. I was mistaken about dinner afterwards, but they did have excellent refreshments. One was a puff pastry with a filling of nutella, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows. It was then drizzled with nutella and chocolate melted together. One of the yummiest desserts ever!

Your plans sound like a nice way to spend the summer. During times like these, I really miss having my kids little. They sure make summer fun, so I am sure you will enjoy your summer so much. I bet they will have you laughing every single day. I hope you and others who have kids or grandkids, or furbabies (CAH, hint, hint; Snowflake and Harlowe, HMG [kids and furbabies], Meceka and Palmer and Mouse, and Made and his neighbor and friend, Brad and his family and car, Coach and Wifey and Baby Coach, [who else?]) will share your summer with those of us who are empty-nesters. I smile every day reading about what is happening with you. It helps keep me young, LOL.

How lovely, How did it go?



They return to school after the two week break and then break up for summer end of July for 6 weeks. We would like to do some day trips and perhaps a mini break somewhere. Other than that I am going to come up with some activities to do at home and there is a nice park nearby. I also want the kids to learn to swim this summer. Jacob is 5 and a little reluctant. Isaac is 1 so fingers crossed they enjoy it.

TGIF!

Good Friday morning, my Christmas friends!

We had some fresh corn-on-the-cob last night, and it's still on my mind. Mmm, mmm! I don't like hot weather, but I sure do love fresh vegetables.

I hope we have an un-eventful Memorial Day weekend. I plan to clean the pool, cut the grass, work on the Camaro...and maybe get 18 holes in! We'll see. Of course, I have to go see Star Trek again!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Your movie night and indoor picnic sound like fun. My sister used to put up "tents" made from blankets draped over chairs and would fix hotdogs and all the fixings for the kids to "camp out" when they were too young to go out by themselves. So fun!

I was thinking of putting together some scrapbooking projects into specific containers so I can just pick one up and work on it when I have time. By having it ready to go, I can work, put it back in its container and store it until I can work again. I will need to do it that way while we have the house torn apart for remodeling. I am going to put together some crocheting projects, too. Merry Carey, do you have your special Christmas afghan ready to start?

It is freezing out, very windy and nowhere near summer temperatures. Ahhh well what can you do. I saw the Christmas episode of Mindy Project last night, made me feel chistmassy. I have started thinking about Christmas gifts. The summer sales are starting here and I'm thinking it would be good to stock up on a few bargains.

We are kicking off the weekend with movie night and indoor picnic. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend xxx

Oh, yeah, add HMG's ducks to the summer reports, LOL!

The ducks are in my pool right now. I'm kind of getting nervous, they are spending a little too much time back there. I don't want to have to worry about them when I let my dogs out in the backyard. Although, the ducks are probably bigger than the dogs, lol.
I hope you and your family are well. Have fun at your indoor picnic and movie night. Hope you have a wonderful weekend

Surprisingly, our temps are supposed to be in the high 60s! Weird weather everywhere!

Typical day here, errands and chores. I have to work on a menu plan for next week and go to the butcher. I am hoping we will be able to plan a barbeque at least one day this weekend. The weather doesn't look good. We'll see what happens.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!
