Sadly, it was short-lived. It’s currently forecasted to be 33 degrees with a chance of snow. Blah.
Longest. Winter. EVERRRRRR.
I can’t wait to get out in the garden and plant, but alas, we shall wait.
Did you see on facebook, we had another freezer die?!
ACK! Is this an almost 12-year-old marriage thing? I can’t complain, because they were all given to use for FREE.
Best part of a new freezer?

The weekend was totally wonderful; I napped on my lawn chair in the sun, we blew bubbles, hit around some golf balls, watched Daddy filet the fish he caught at the lake, and went to the MCC Relief Sale. I write about it every year, so if you have no idea what MCC Relief is, check this blog post out from a few years ago.
It’s tradition and apparently both Dale and I have been going since we can remember, because while we were walking around the MCC Sale we discovered something AMAZING!
I was telling the kids about the “good ol’ days” when I was a kid. We’d bring our motorhome and stay overnight, from morning till night, I would run around with my friends and have a grand ol’ time. We loved to play under the stage by the pond, and there were always CUTE boys under there for us to follow around.
Dale turns to me with big eyes and says, “We came all weekend too because my dad worked a booth. And we always hung out under the stage by the pond.”
WHAT!? No stinkin’ way.
Then I ask him about the year it rained so hard, those same cute boys we saw every year, wore white trash bags as ponchos. He is like “Yup, we went to my dad’s booth and got them to wear so we could stay outside.”
HOW CRAZY IS THAT!? Guess I had good taste in men even as a 6th grader?

Did you know we planted some Trees in Papa’s honor?
2 Cherry, 2 Apple, 2 Pear and 2 Peach! When Dale came to me with the idea, I declared it the PERFECT way to honor his father. He was always the one to bring the fruit to every function anyhow! 🙂
Well, that’s it for now. I have got to run to the store to get a few things for Dale’s Birthday dinner tonight. He wants Steak and a butter-sauteed hash of Asparagus, baby bella mushrooms and zucchini for supper. And then of course, LEMON Dessert.
Actually not this one as tradition states:
We are saving that one for Easter.
He wants THIS one, a new favorite.
Happy Birthday to my Sweetie pie!!!!
You fill our home with your deep chested laugh, strong arms that throw kids high in the air in fun play,
You are my voice of reason, my safe place, my best friend and the love of my life…..
Today, we celebrate YOU!
Have a great day, everyone! Happy Monday…
