It's been awhile! I got home from the farm on Friday. We had such a good time---as we usually do. The only thing missing from this trip (well, besides the internet) was good weather. One of my favorite things to do at the farm is to sit outside and read or stitch. We have happy hour out there. We managed to sit out for a bit, but mostly it was either too chilly, breezy or rainy. Next time for sure.
We've got it down pretty good for going to the farm. We each take a couple meals and have a leftover day. We share lots of new recipes. We scrapbook and share techniques too. I usually plan something extra for everybody. This time, I've got everyone started on a Christmas album. I promised them simple pages---it's about getting those memories recorded. We did two pages and the title page on this trip. When we got home, I was excited to plan another page.
When I got home on Friday, I discovered a message that I couldn't receive at the farm---that my pillow was ready to be picked up.
I finished a little ornament that I made for my new son-in-law over the weekend. I'm just now starting on a class project that Connie and I are taking. Stephanie and Mindy are taking it too, but I am going to be their teacher since they cannot attend. It's a sampler project. I'll share when there's something to share!
Saturday night, we went to the wedding of the daughter of a family friend. The venue was outside. It was a beautiful location and luckily, the weather was incredible. We had a great time. Butch and I danced quite a bit---at least for me. I danced with a couple people I didn't know---little boy and 30-something girl---they asked me. Why not? I just have fun everywhere I go!
That brings us to Easter. The girls wanted to dye Easter eggs, so we did it first thing in the morning. Nicky made his famous "bloody Mary's"! Earlier in the week, I got a text from Morgan about the "competition." I told her it wasn't a competition. Well, apparently is was! Of course every family activity turns in to a competition of some sort. It's always good fun and lots of laughs.
Jordan and Morgan were there along with Carter. The only thing that could have made it better was if the Lapps family were with us. They are at the beach for their spring break. That's not a bad way to spend Easter either!!
Back to my regular life today. Movie Monday!!
