 Later this afternoon our oldest son will be home for a few days. Even though our time will be short, it will be enjoyable to see him. I know our three grandsons are waiting anxiously for him to get here. They think they can stay home from school leave it to them to try. 

We will have a cookout later this afternoon at our younger son's house. He is fixing pork chops on the grill. I am hoping they also fix the potatoes, onions, carrots, and mixture that they do at times that is so yummy. We will, also celebrate our oldest birthday which was this past week. 

They say it is going to be stormy later this afternoon. It is on the chilly side right now, but we had 70's yesterday. The wind was really strong. I thought I wasn't going to get my car door open. After that episode, I watch how I parked so I wouldn't have that problem. I can just see me climbing over the console of my car to get out the other door with people watching. They would have really laughed at that.  

I thought I would show you a couple of my new tea towels. I have a couple more that just needs the borders. On my bouquet of flowers I used two shades of purple for the edging and my owl I used a shade of dark green. I am doing a craft show here in a couple of weeks so I am trying to get them done. 

I put together a resume that didn't look bad according to the employment agency. They send the resumes to the company and they decide who they want to interview. Oh well, we shall see. I am just glad that I can still wear my navy blue pant suit and didn't have to fit some new clothes in my budget.

Our youngest grandson wanted a rabbit for Easter. He didn't get it so he has this idea when his oldest dog dies, he will get a rabbit instead of another dog. He even went to the point he wanted to measure the oldest one so that he could see what size of a hole he needed. He is going to get his Uncle to show him how to build him a house for his rabbit. You have to love the ideas that they come up with. He tried for chickens because he wanted to have fresh eggs. He starts baseball practice today. 

Hope you all have warm weather, sunshine, and a beautiful Sunday.

I am glad to hear you are doing better, sorry to take so long to get back to you, this last surgery was hard.
Your needle work is so beautiful, I always smile when I look at my black tea towels!!! My daughter loves the red ones too, and my granddaughter thinks your stitching is perfect!
I need to order some more of the black ones....I'll email you, that is if you have time.
Fingers crossed for your resume, I am sure all the companies reading your resume will want to hire you!!!

Hello MIss Shirely...

I'm so glad your son was able to visit for a few days. There is nothing like your children visiting, is there? The rewards of growing older is that our kids grow older (and up), too! Our kids were always wonderful but they have grown up to be amazing human beings.

Love to you...xoRebecca
PS: Thank you for always visiting me...
