Green Thumb

  Saturday and Sunday were frosty mornings here in Quakertown PA.  Unfortunately, there have been a few casualties of the frost.  My brother lost his tomato plants.  My bell pepper leaves are a little wounded, although they seemed to have survived the cold blast.  But the frost is ending and we can plant without fear!  When the sun finally warmed everything up on Sunday, … Continue reading

Are you ready for Mother’s Day?

Mother’s Day is already here…almost.  I am not sure where the time went, but it kind of freaks me out that Mother’s Day is already on Sunday.  Wasn’t it just Christmas?  I am still cleaning pine needles out of the cracks of my hundred year old wood floors.  This year, my New Years Resolution was to be … Continue reading

I should have ordered magnets…

  With my wedding coming up in September I really needed to get the Save the Dates out, and I have been procrastinating for months… Did you know that March is the national month of procrastination?  Finally (after March), I buckeled down and got them done, but really I should have just ordered magnets.  Sureeee, everyone … Continue reading

Happy Easter!

The bunny has arrived!  Easter has turned into a 2 day event!  Last night we went to my Dad’s for a delicious dinner, good champagne and Easter EGG Painting (in that order)!  My niece had a mini Easter Egg hunt in the living room.  I think Hunter, my Dad’s dog, may have also found some … Continue reading
