Busy Sunday .....

This was a busy day.  I was able to attend church after three weeks.  It was wonderful to see everyone again.  Sunday school was a small class but we were excited for one of our members as her daughter was in labor with her first child.  Worship was wonderful and I really missed the singing.

After church, my daughter and her fiancĂ© met me and took me out for lunch at Olive Garden.  Wonderful meal !!!!  Then my dd and I went to the Pink Bride Bridal Fair.  It is the second time that we have attend one and there were not as many vendors as last year.  Her wedding is five months away and we have done very little planning.  We have a deal that her father and I are not putting a penny towards the wedding until they get some pre-martial counseling.  We are still waiting for it to happen.  :(   She keeps making plans so that when they finally get some done we can start putting things in place.  So far we have reserved the venue and the reception site.  We have talked to a caterer and have gotten some decorating ideas for the reception hall.  She has her dress also.  We go on March 7 to look at bridesmaids dresses.

Once I got home, I have had dinner to make, papers to sort for dh and laundry to work on.  Dinner was grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup.  I tend to go low key on Sunday nights.

Off to bed here soon.

Its Been a Wild Winter .... and garden

The weather in middle Tennessee has been crazy this winter so far.  We have had everything but snow.  The snow gets to a county or two west of us then parts and goes around us.  Our county must have a snow bubble around it.  Then last night we had tornadoes around us also.  Now our county has had the most tornadoes in Middle Tennessee in the past forty years so we take warnings very seriously.  Don't get me wrong, we have had cold weather, very cold weather.  Just not the precipitation that you would normal think of in winter.  I have just wanted one snow this winter that is it,  is that too much to ask?  In middle Tennessee it seems to be.

Now I can't wait to get into our raised beds to prepare for our spring garden.  I hope to plant cabbage, broccoli, peas, kale and cauliflower.  I might plant more if I get all the beds readied in time.
