"These happy golden years are passing by, these happy golden years." Laura Ingalls Wilder

I did not fall off the face of the earth. This is Spring Break, formerly called Easter Vacation, but with Easter falling so early, the schools are out now. But with winter still here, I'm not sure why it wasn't postponed until next month (lol) ... really now, spring is trying hard to arrive ... but the 'old man' just won't go away. My parents are visiting for another week ... so my presence will be scarce (should anyone inquire).

Gotta run. It may be cold out ... but I'm still gonna act like it's spring. BBQ is raring to go and there's a peach pie in the oven. ttfn

the smell of something on the grill with make you think its spring no matter what it is!

Enjoy your time with your parents - we'll be here when you return. Soon hubby will be retired and life will be taking a different course. I bet you can't wait!
It's sunny and going up to 60 today - yipee!

Louise said...

Yes, we'll be here when you return and do enjoy time with your parents. And indeed, once hubby retires, a whole new world opens up.

We are in shirt sleeves and some days it gets into the 80's. The grass is green, the flowers have bloomed, some even are putting on fruit.
Mother nature is working, she just has a few things mixed up there North. :-)

Dear Mrs. Mac,
I guess your parents were thrilled by the beautiful home you have created.
I wish they would leave a well desereved comment of praise on your blog.
Spring is coming slowly on tip toes on the other side of the sea as well.

Luckily the bulb plants are tough guys who can endure the frosty bites of King Winter.

This week, if God will, I'll try to get some garden work done.
Sacks of soil and manure are waiting to be spread. Gotta wear thick garden gloves thoough.

Good luck with your family and your in and outdoor work.
From Felisol

If you have ice cream for that pie, I'll be right over!

I found out from my Hub that there is a formula for calculating Easter.

It's the first Sunday after the first full moon after the first day of Spring.

Sure enough, I checked the calendar and it was exactly that!

I just got back from Yosemite and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Enjoy your folks!

Enough already....get back here.

Mrs. Mac said...

Enough already indeed! Now that the folks flew home this morning, I will have to get my act together and make a post. Be back tomorrow.
