Sunshine, where are you???

Where is the sunshine? We have had so many different types of days this past week and another cloudy, cold one again today. I just want some sunshine. 
They had the parade yesterday and it wasn't like they had anticipated. Some of the kids covered their band uniforms with rain poncho's keep them dry. It was a rainy, dreary day. My middle grandson and his momma took part in it. He was setting on a tool box of one of the company trucks with his winter clothes on. He had a good fun. They had enough fun that they are talking about doing it next year.   The people that were in for the barbecue cook off competition were braving the cold weather. I can remember we cooked out in the cold weather. I think sometimes the food taste better cooked outside. I miss those days because it was hubby that did the cooking. His favorite things to cook were brisket and roast. It was warmer toward midnight then it had been the whole day. When I got up during the night, I looked out the window you couldn't see much because of the heavy fog. I don't know how far the visibility would have been if you were driving.
I hope next weekend is not like this one or it won't be very warm to watch the kids ride. They are getting so anxious. They went yesterday and got new shirts for the show season. The preparation for the first show is getting done today with putting the show books together. They were going to meet at the club grounds and make a party out of it. They have a good group of people who work together which makes it more enjoyable. The T-shirts are being ordered. Each child will receive one with a prepaid entry form listing all of the classes they are going to do.  I am even going to get one in orchid to help support the club.  
I have to make sure I take extra batteries for my camera, that is a must that I take pictures for grandpa. 
My new project is started. I decided to work on my quilts that have been on the back burner for a while. I hope you all have an enjoyable Sunday. I need to get around and go to the nursing home or I will get a phone call wanting to know where I am at. Take care

I agree about food tasting better when it's cooked outside. In fact, I think food tastes better when it is eaten outside, no matter where it was cooked! :)
I hope you have better weather for the show next weekend..warm but not hot. Fingers crossed for you!

Oh shirley I wish I could send this beautiful weather that we are having to you. I know it won't last long for us but I have enjoyed it. I will try to send it to you, okay. Love hearing you talk about your grandsons. It is so much fun going to their events. Can't wait to see your quilts. I know your husband looks forward to seeing you. You are such a giving person.

So many of us are wishing for better weather. It has definitely been an odd spring, weather-wise! We saw snow Friday and that's a first for me here in Missouri!

Hope you have a great week!

This winter just won't let go! I hope you feel better today. That kind of sickness is really bad. Make sure you take enough time to recover. Sometimes we think we have so many things to do that we don't have time to rest. But then you get back to being sick.
All the horse preparations sound exciting. I wish your Grandchildren a good and safe season.

Hi Shirley-- I hope by now that you are getting a little bit of sunshine. I know you love getting out and watching your grandsons--- I'm glad you are taking a little time to do some fun things for yourself.

I wish I could send you some nice weather Shirley. It's been a little icky over here too, but today it was 80 degrees! Too hot for me!...I know what you mean about food tasting better when it's eaten outside. Maybe it's just because we work up more of an appetite when we're outside! Good luck with all the show preparations. Have a happy Mother's Day, sweetie! xo
