So, I’m going to try to give you all a glimpse of what the past two weeks have been like around these parts and why I’ve been MIA.
I’ll start with last weekend when we went to visit my mom to spend some time with friends from Germany who were visiting. The weekend before they came over here for a day trip to see a little bit of the East coast – and that’s pretty much when I went “missing”… I got busy with life.
We enjoyed my mom’s pool which is heated and much more comfortabel than ours which is still a bit on the cool side!
The next day, we decided to stop by Cracker Barrel for a late lunch, early dinner before heading to the beach to watch the sunset. I couldn’t resist snapping a picture of my pretty girl – she just looks so cute with a hat!
I’m not sure what we did on Monday, other than go to work/school and catch up from the weekend. On Tuesday, we went to Seder dinner for Passover with hubby’s grandma. It was a nice evening and the food was pretty good but I was really grateful that I didn’t have to stand in front of the stove all day or clean up after the feast. I was just able to sit and enjoy!
Wednesday I needed a little pick-up for a rainy, dreary afternoon and enjoyed a nice cup of freshly brewed tea in my shiny, new teapot that came all the way from Germany. The tea did too, a fine black tea from an area in Germany called East Frisia – simple delicious with a little sugar and a touch of milk.
Thursday was our Friday for this week and we took home Shirley with us again for the long weekend so she wouldn’t have to be alone in the Science lab for 4 days. I’m not sure what it is about this little critter but I just love her little twitchy nose and the way she likes to hide between the pillows.
Friday we were busy running around, errands and chores needed to be taken care of so we could enjoy all things Easter over the weekend – like coloring Easter eggs and decorating a little bit. I totally dropped the ball on decorating for Easter this year, not that I usually do that much of it anyways but this year it’s just been sad.
Today, we went to Easter brunch at grandma’s club with the in-laws. It was nice and for a change we were all together! Grandma’s aide took a nice picture of us to commemorate the occasion. The girls were trying to see who could eat the most desserts – not sure who was the winner. I do believe I lost that deal having to spend the afternoon with two sugared up, hyper girls. 🙂
And now, just because, a few pics I took with my big girl camera yesterday…
The last picture is of the pretty Spring flowers I treated myself too when I saw them at the check out line. I edited them a bit with an HDR filter! There it is, a little picture catch-up of the past few weeks.
Have a great week, everyone!!!
