Wow, this year is just going by like crazy!!! Had a great Easter with Daughter and family. Lots of good stuff to eat, ham, turkey and the fixings. Yummy cake for dessert! Lots of laughter and memories made. Pictures too, have to have those. The granddaughters are growing up fast!! The eldest of my daughter's is going away to college this year. Wow, only seems a short while ago she arrived on this earth!!! I've been very busy with the senior center, estate sales, bingo, and just taking care of business. I walked more last week, so that is good. Finally have some warmer weather, the goslings have hatched. So neat, little yellow suits on that will soon turn into feathers and look a likes of their parents My lilacs are gone! :-(, but roses(climbing) are beginning to show up and if the wind doesn't blow them all away as fast as they arrive, should be really pretty. I discovered my orchids are beginning to open up as well. This coming week our garden club has their annual plant sale and I am hoping to get some new ones for the patio/backyard. Have a trip to San Francisco on Tuesday, so another busy week ahead. Here's hoping you have had a lovely Spring as well. Antique Rose

Well, another weekend almost gone. Yesterday morning, I went to the flea market. It was quite windy, and a bit cool, but I enjoyed it none the less!! I found a pretty creamer, pink roses of course. Then a couple of necklaces , even if I don't wear them, they are eye candy!! Last, but not least a small photo album(my daughter now has that), it was pretty and the style, vintage. Later in the morning my daughter and granddaughters came for a visit. It is always a fun day, full of laughter and running around. We went to a local store we both like that was having their spring open house. Did I find anything, silly question, of course I did and the granddaughters found a couple of treasures they wanted as well. So it was an enjoyable day, and after we finished shopping a early dinner at their favorite place. Today it was back to the old routine, stripped the bed, did some laundry, and of course hit the computer. I became a great aunt again today, a very handsome boy of my nephew. My sister became a grandmother for the first time. They are thrilled!!! I am very happy for them. Must rest now, have a busy day tomorrow, my son is coming to help me clear and organize things.!! Hopefully it will look better!! I will get to rest my weary bones on Tuesday. Our Antique club will have it's first trip of the year. Yea, another fun time hunting for treasures!! Antique Rose

These past two weeks have be trying, but that is life. Another friend is gone, and my walking partner's daughter also passed away. While one was sad, she had a long life. Not so with the daughter, so that was sad and I felt really bad for my friend!! She has had quite a lot on her plate the last two years!!!
On a lighter note, my Morning Doves came back, built their nest, and for the last couple of weeks have been taking turns sitting on the nest with two eggs. Well, they hatched, and the parents are busy feeding the hungry children!!! My young Lilac bushes/trees are getting leaves much to my joy, as I thought they may have been messed up with the rain and cold weather just as they were budding!! And a blueberry bush that my daughter gave me last year isn't dead!!! It has new leaves, that really is good, had thought about pulling it up and planting yet another one. So guess I don't have to do that! :-) My Dahlia bulbs are not showing yet, so not sure of those, it rained so much they may have rotted. :-( So it is a waiting game! Sweet peas are beginning to bloom, they smell so good. I have small plants to put in containers for our garden plant sale, so have things to keep me busy! Spring is finally here, I think!! Went to the farmers market yesterday, they had sweet peas to buy, was tempted, but figured I would have my own soon, so didn't, I did get apples, blackberries, blueberries and salad greens. Yum!! Well, looking forward to this coming week. Ta Ta Antique Rose
