The Weekend With Dara!

We had a wonderful weekend with our granddaughter! First thing, we made mint donuts!

Then we went to a free event with face painting and bouncy houses!


Kitchen bowling followed!

This was followed by winning her first ever game of Cootie, and playing the electric drums.


During rests and at bedtime, Sunny snuggled with her.



Sunday morning started with breakfast, then she got herself ready for church. Including fixing her own hair and getting dressed.



She was so excited with our church that she came home dancing and spinning around. Someone gave her two bags of M&M's!


By late afternoon, Phil, Sunny, and Dara were all just a wee bit tired. But I had to remain alert to take pictures!

“You’ll see your children grow up, your family lovely and lissome as orchard grass. You’ll arrive at your grave ripe with many good years, like sheaves of golden grain at harvest.

Job 5

Happy Weekend!

I will not be visiting on Saturday, and maybe not Sunday either. Our granddaughter is spending the weekend with us! So of course, she will get my full attention. I will return in a day or two, maybe with pictures! Till then, here are some beautiful pictures of the sky I took. Happy weekend!!

Church Flowers

In my last post, you all seemed to love the card with the big pink flower. Well, those real flowers are on our church grounds now, along with some others. And they are blooming right now! So let's take a look at how they were doing this morning.












“See the marvels of God! He plants flowers and trees all over the earth…” 
Psalm 46

The Cards

Here are my very favorite cards that friends have sent me over the years. These are keepers!

This one was a get well card.

This was a Christmas card.

My friend Monica from Sweden sent me this awesome postcard of April joy, plus I love Birch trees.


Monica also sent me a fox, badger, and hedgehog enjoying a hot air balloon ride. Perhaps my favorite postcard of all time!

“Like a cool drink of water when you’re worn out and weary is a letter from a long-lost friend.

Some Bunny Loves Easter!

Here are the pictures we took on Easter Sunday! Our little bunnies were so excited!


Even a fully grown adult bunny was hopping around.

The back of Anne Marie's dress.

The press on nails we had put in her Easter basket!

Now, time to go out for the Easter Egg Hunt and pictures! They ran too fast for me to keep up!



We made big eggs into bunnies, did jigsaw puzzles..


And just generally goofed off.

“They send their children out to play and watch them frolic like spring lambs.”

Easter 2017

Happy Easter to everyone! If you didn't make it to church, come with me to the alter in our church. A day to rejoice and thank God!








Bye for now!

“We know that when Jesus was raised from the dead it was a signal of the end of death-as-the-end. Never again will death have the last word. When Jesus died, he took sin down with him, but alive he brings God down to us. From now on, think of it this way: Sin speaks a dead language that means nothing to you; God speaks your mother tongue, and you hang on every word. You are dead to sin and alive to God. That’s what Jesus did.

Romans 6
