Before the Easter Brunch preparations start, I wanted to mention how I spent last week. Dearest Hubby had to travel for work and dearest Daughter also had meetings to attend out of town. When Kris travels I always take grand daughter Penny. It gives Dad a break and gives me precious time with my babygrand. I had never taken care of Penny without Grandpa's assistance. I was downright nervous about the whole thing. I am always a bit nervous whenever my guy travels anyway.
Well, I drove into the city to pick up Penny and I have to say, from that moment, we had the very best time.
We did everything together, sleeping, eating, shopping and even napping. We had a mandatory quiet time in the afternoon, where we sat in Grandpa's big chair and snuggled. Pretty soon Penny was asleep in my arms and then I napped too. Penny's energy is endless, mine is fine for the activities of a 61 year old woman, but I had to keep up. We had so much fun, talked and joked. She may be just 3 years old, but there was never a lull in the conversation, and I occasionally got in a word or two. We had a great week and were so happy when Grandpa came home and then when we were able to pick up Mommy from the airport. I miss her, but Penny explained to me that she HAD to go home to be with her Mom and Dad, and reassured me that she would soon be back. O what fun we had!
One more thing, we drove around yesterday listening to Jesus Christ Superstar and Godspell. I was feeling so nostalgic for my days with the Immaculate Heart of Mary's Young People's Choir. I spent my youth in Church, and the special Masses for Palm Sunday and Holy Week and Easter Vigil really makes me miss those golden olden days of my youth. . The smell of Easter lilies brings it all back. Since I don't have any recordings from those services, I listened to our choir album (yes, I have been recorded, one record, never made the charts;-) and then on you tube I found the complete albums from Jesus Christ Superstar and Godspell. (Always a Lenten tradition) Through the magic of the iphone we drove through the country and listened. Remember the song Day by Day? Or the Hosanna from JC Superstar? I had tears a few times remembering Palm Sunday's of long ago.
Boy, I had a lot to say today, maybe it was just procrastination... Gotta go...Now to work!
God bless you all, Happy Easter and enjoy this beautiful day!

I borrowed some of the things from my fairy garden and added a small cement rabbit. It was done in just minutes, but sure brightened up a gloomy Sunday.
Cloudy day, bad photos.
These sweet towels are pretty. The photo does not do them justice.
Thanks so very much for stopping by and for your kindness always. Enjoy this beautiful day.

I spent a hour on the deck, filling the fountain, picking up branches and sweeping, just in shirtsleeves. Now the sky is clouded over and I am inside. Still with gardens on my mind. I purchased a couple of plants to make a terrarium, so that's what I'll work on this morning.
Did you watch the Downton Abbey finale? I liked that everything was neatly wrapped up, but it felt rushed to me. Some of those story lines would have made for some interesting episodes. All good things must come to an end, and we (yes hubby too) enjoyed the series. We recorded the last Myth Busters episode so equal time for his favorites too.
Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comments on my blog anniversary. Enjoy this beautiful day.
