Lot's has happened since I last wrote on my blog.
1.My niece Kelly is getting married at the end of June, and she was given a lovely bridal shower by her sister, Trish. The shower was held at the Monponsett Inn, Halifax, MA. A mouth watering dinner was served to all the guest. Lovely tulips were on each table and one lucky person from each table got to bring the plant home.
Kelly and Geno received so many lovely gifts, and it took several vans to get everything to her parent's house after the shower.
3. I started Weight Watchers and started walking 1 1/2 miles a day. So far I have lost weight each week and I am noticing my clothes are getting loose on me. Yeah!!!
4. BIG NEWS!!!!..we have a new granddaughter...Samantha Lynn. Sammi was born on May 3rd, weighed 7 pounds 9 ounces and was 19 1/4 inches long. The photo below was taken a few hours after she was born. I couldn't believe how alert she was and her eyes were open the whole time I visited.
Big Sister Bella who will be 3 on May 24th.
6. Sunday was Mother's Day at Steven and Robin's. Steven prepared Steamed lobsters, homemade clam chowder, clams casino, BBQ pork, hot dogs, hamburgers and pasta salad. I made a seafood casserole. I will share that recipe in another post. Everything was delicious. Since I started WW's there has been a party every weekend, but I've been good.
The spring flowers are just beautiful this spring. The Mollis azalea's just started to open. The lilacs are in full bloom and smell heavenly.
Lots of beautiful birds have arrived..bluebirds, orioles, cardinal, goldfinches, woodpeckers and so many others have been coming to the yard.
I haven't had time for art, but today I bought myself one of those Gelli plates. I've been wanting one for sometime. Now, to create painted pages for my art journals. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqyCRnqcgK0
