Cute little Table

Yesterday Molly called me and wanted to go to Williamsport to the Olive Garden for lunch and a little shopping. I love the Olive Garden almost as much as she does, so it sounded good to me. I found this cute little table at TJ Maxx. I haven't decided where I want to use it yet but I love the color so I'm sure I'll find a spot. Right now its in the kitchen, but it will probably go to the front porch eventually. Did I mention that I love the color!!!

Found a plant stand that will go to the front porch as soon as the weather warms up and I have a weekend to clean out there. I found a pair of shoes and a cute little purse that will go on the shelf with my collection of evening bags. Molly is trying to save money and so all she got was a purse that she searched all over CT last week to find.

Friday my plan was to do some outside grilling and when I tried to light the grill I was surprised to find some twigs and grass on the grilling rack. I suspected that a bird had gotten into the grill and abandoned his idea of starting a home there. I cleaned out the mess and grilled some hamburgers.

Today I was sitting in my bedroom and noticed a bird trying to get into the gas grill by going through an air hole on the side. I guess the bird had not given up, so I went out and lifted the lid of the grill.....I'll wait till the nesting season is over before closing the lid again.

I remember one summer at camp a bird had built a birds nest in one of the girls bathing suits as it hung on the clothes line. I had a family of birds in a hanging flower basket one summer and learned pretty quick not to purchase anymore hanging baskets until after the nesting season is over... not sure when that is. What is the oddest place you know that a bird has chosen for a home?

Easter Activities

Today we finally got to meet Molly's boyfriend. This seems to be a serious relationship so it was a big deal for me. The fact that he lives on the West Coast and we are on the East Coast is not my choice for a boyfriend. But.... he seems like a very nice guy and I can see them together. So, I'll just wait and see what happens.

I hid a few eggs for Tucker to find and he enjoyed that....this was obviously not his first Easter Egg hunt, as soon as he found an egg, he opened it to see what was inside it. The photo is of Tucker and his dad, my nephew Tim.

For those who celebrate Easter, I hope you had a nice one and I hope you to0k time to thank your Lord and Savior for sending his son, Jesus Christ to die for our sins. Happy Easter.
