Hi Everyone!

It’s Fat Tuesday! What will you be doing on this day as we prepare for Lent season? I think i’ll make some pancakes for the kids today.  Dh won’t eat them so it’ll be the kids only.  onstage-fat-tuesday-cover-7

Well thank goodness I am finally over my flu and strep throat.  It took a good two weeks to get over it all.  I felt great yesterday and began cleaning my front yard and porch.  I am really looking forward to spring. :)  We are forecast to be in the 60s this week.  Woohoo!  I love being outside! I love working in my gardens.  I do not mind getting my hands dirty from planting and such.  :)  I really do enjoy it.  Dh told me yesterday that I should start pruning my rosebushes.  I do need to replace some because they look like they are not making it.  I’d love to plant some David Austin roses. :)  I think they are such a beautiful rose.  My tulips are starting to peak thru now.  Sigh, this tells me that spring is almost here.

My oldest son made a surprise visit over the weekend.  He is currently in medical school in Houston, Tx.  He arrived Thursday evening and we were completely surprised!  I think he made it a point of coming because I was so sick and he worries about me.  Yes, he’s my boy….my mama’s boy. :)  He has always been like that.  Always watching out for me.  I have to tell you this though!  My husband and I were sitting in our living room last Thursday when my 12 yr old said “Mama! Someone is walking thru our front yard!  A short kid!”  Right after that, we hear knocking on our front windows!  Dh got up ready to protect his family from this person.  I’m sure he put on his invisible cape and felt like superman ready to see who was out there.   Well it was our oldest son!  Oh my gosh!  We were surprised!  So happy that he came!  We spent the next few days just visiting and he told us about how his classes are going.  He is really enjoying medical school.  He said it’s not hard for him.  We knew that. :)  We went shopping and went out to eat.  Did I tell you that all of a sudden I felt so much better?! :)   I really enjoyed the few days he was here. :)  He left early yesterday and made it to Houston by 6:00 p.m.  It’s a good 9 to 10 hour drive from here.  Of course mama had to keep calling every hour to hour and a half to make sure he was alright. :)  Gosh, I miss him already.  Aaah, spring break will be here soon. :) 

Oooh! I can’t wait to post about a telephone call I received from one of my blogger friends!  She is such a sweetie!  I also need to share with you all on some things I changed around in my living room. 

I hope everyone is doing great!  I have a lot to catch up thru blogland!   Wow! This is a long post isn’t it? :)  Have a super and wonderful day, my friends!!!

Glad to hear you finally got over that stuff! What a wonderful surprise when your son came home.
I have a lot of outside clean up, but it is just so cold, it is going to be a while.
