I've got to spend lots of time with Will, Patricia and Tripp. After breakfast yesterday eggs were dyed even if they weren't hard boiled. Way to go Will. Bill was the lucky recipient of that egg this morning.

I love this time of year when people are thinking about one another more than normal.

Last night Bill and I hosted the appetizer part of the progressive dinner for my school. We had so much fun. Cris drove one of the schools buses from house to house. The bus was decorated with green lights.

Soup and salad were served at another teachers house, dinner was served at the directors house and dessert was served at one of the assistant directors house. After dessert we exchanged white elephants gifts.

Don't loose focus that Jesus is the reason for the season.

Time flies by

I've been trying to make the most of every day. It shook my world when I came home from school last week and Bill told me a young man from our church had died. How can this be he was only 22 years old.

Having fun

Tomorrow I get to start my day with a visit to the optomerist before going to school. At school I'm having my picture taken to replace the picture taken three years ago. I've been practicing my smile in the mirror.

On Saturday morning I'll be spending five hours at a teachers seminar to get my last five credit hours for school.

Sunday morning Bill and I will be joining our neighbors at 7:00 a.m. for brunch while watching the hot air balloons flying over the neighborhood. I hope the rain holds off.

Random thoughts

As I go through my daily life I continually realize how blessed I am.

I hope my family knows how much I love them. When I was a little girl all I wanted to be was a wife and mom. God has answered my prayer.

Back home

Well were back in lovely Texas where its still 100 degrees.

Our suitcases are unpacked and groceries have been bought. I guess its time to get back to business. As of tomorrow I'll be at school from 9:00 to 6:00 with an hour and a half lunch break. No more working 11:00 to 6:30 with no sanity break. :)

I'm happy to be back at home to help Patricia out. One arm is in a sling and the stitches on a finger on the opposite hand. Thank goodness her faced didn't get messed up and she didn't get hurt worse.

This morning we went to town to run some errands. I've been intrigued by a sign that has been catching my eye for the past two weeks that says "Fresh Strawberries." Bill being the best husband in the world followed the signs through unknown parts of town until we found the strawberry farm. There energetic young men picking strawberries.

We are now in the process of making homemade strawberry jam. I love making homemade edibles. :)

When its fifty degrees there's nothing better to do than bake cookies. The final count was 83 cookies. We delivered cookies to neighbors to make their day sweeter.

Bill caught the first keeper of the year. We saw a northern pike out by the front reeds unfortunately he wasn't interested in our bait.

The next day Bill had good luck again. The fish I was catching were a joke.

We made two trips to the Farmers Market to buy killer zucchini's so we make zucchini relish for the year. Bill was disciplined by the farmer for mishandling the zucchini's and possibly bruising them! We didn't it was possible to injure squash.

Yesterday I had a lesson on how to drive the row boat using the trolling motor. I'm happy to report that neither Bill or I fell over board and I only went in circles for the first five minutes of the lesson. My hat is off to Bill he makes controlling the boat look easy. :)
