Easter Morning

Hi all!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend, and or Easter.
We celebrated Jake's first Easter this year. We had a lovely brunch, followed by Amanda and Jake looking for eggs, well Amanda looked for Jake. He is still a bit small to look for eggs. Maybe next year. He was smiling the whole time, and I think he had fun just being outdoors. The weather sort of cooperated. It was a bit cloudy and only in the 60's, cool for Easter. Today we had April showers.
Take a good look at the beautiful yellow tulips surrounded by jelly beans. This arrangement was a surprise present sent to me by my friend Jean in Rhode Island.
It was so sweet of her to think of me. I was very excited to get flowers in the mail.
She is such a nice friend, and I'm so glad we met through blogging. How nice is that?
Thank you again Jean!! I love my flowers and jelly beans!!
I have been working on junk crowns all day, so this was the first chance I had to post. I hope to get around to visiting your blogs later today or this evening.
Have a wonderful week!!
Chat again soon.

ROSEMARY!!! OMG Jake is a little cute and what fun you all must have had being together!!! How fabulous. We had a wonderful time here just quiet, creating, drawing, writing, sleeping, eating, wow!!! I had the best spring break just staying home and today, about 5 of my students were still absent, coming in today I believe from Paris, Mexico, you name it! Things were mild and I only have 9 weeks of school left. I can do it, I can do it...that's my mantra for the next two months!!!

Junk crowns...did someone mention crowns? Let's see!!!!

Hi rosemary, Hasn't the weather been wonderful! That shower we had on Monday was such a surprise and cleared up the air...I went to The Groves Flea Market on Sunday (In Irvine) I found a couple of things but good ones!! I know its a huge drive for you..I might go to The Rose Bowl one last time this year before the big heat hits...All the best, Cynthia
