What a difference a day makes...

I meant to post this yesterday but couldn't get back to my 'pecuter'( that's how my granddaughter used to say computer). The day was lovely, as is today. Happy Easter everyone. My daughter came to visit with my sweet little 4 yr old grandbaby yesterday and we went to the town Easter egg hunt. What an awesome time we had. Miss Maddie is pretty timid so she didn't get a lot of eggs, but she was delighted with the ones she did find. As I was walking into the park where it was held I had an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for this little town I live in. There were cars lined up and down the street and it looked liked the whole town was out in force.(you can't really tell by the photo) There's approximately 530 people living here in the city limits and maybe 150 living in the out-lying areas. I love these people. All of them have impacted my life in some way. I love meeting new people and I was able to meet two lovely ladies at this event that I didn't think I'd met before. They were young Spanish speaking moms that were there enjoying the hunt with there little ones. We had the best visit. They told me that they were in school with my two older daughters. They were delightful and I was so glad that I had gotten out of my comfort zone today and approached them and introduced myself. I usually glob onto one or two of my friends to catch up on the latest news and am oblivious to others. These are my neighbors and they live just to the right (a few homes down the road) of me and yet I didn't even know it until today. I am so happy to know them now. Such a wonderful day to make a new friend or two. You've gotta love a small town Easter egg hunt.

Just reading some old blogs of yours about slipcovers. I buy painters tarps and wash them a few times. They make the best slipcovers. I have had mine about 5yrs and I'm just starting to think about having new ones make. And I have a large dog and 3 cats that sleep on them. I might die them this time. Very durable.

Hi June,
Your grand-baby is darling! I forget how much the little ones love Easter egg hunting now that my daughter's in her late teens. How fun watching her hunt for eggs for you. Nice you introduced yourself to your neighbors (and found out they were your neighbors too!) I think we get used to the same things that are comfortable to ourselves and don't think about stepping out much to have new experiences and make new friends. I'm going to try to remember this and do the same some time this week.
Have a wonderful week.

What fun!! I love small town living (we're quite a bit bigger than you are, but still small compared to where hubby and I grew up). It looks like you had a lovely time meeting new friends and rejoicing over Easter.

Your grandaughter is adorable! (But then, you already knew that didn't you?) : D

What a sweet and pretty grandbaby you have, I adore her curls and that smile is to die for ♥

I too live in a small village, 950 peeps live here, and love them all. I really feel at home.
Thank you for your comment about my top and skirt, I DO feel good in them, lol.

Hugs from Marian

It sounds like it was a great time! We also live in a small town and it is so nice when the community gets together for events. Your granddaughter is just beautiful. I'm glad you had such a wonderful visit!

Oh June...she's a doll! I just want to pinch those rosey little cheeks!

I've been so busy this week so I'm catching up on all what I've missed.

Ain't it nice to live in a small town? Small town but such big blessings!
