Hello everyone. We have been working hard on our yards and grove in preparation for hosting our family here for Easter. We had some trees trimmed on Friday. The kind of thing I hate to spend money on!! But sometimes we just can't do some of the stuff that has to be done around here ourselves. Like this very tall palm tree. Greg like to scare me to death a few weeks ago when we was standing on the roof with an extension pole trying to cut the fronds and pods from this tree!!
You could see the threat of rain coming in over the hills.
Greg pulled a couple of chairs up underneath the canopy of the avocado trees, and we sat there watching the rain fall, having a sandwich and making sure that the fire was completely out before going inside.
After nice hot showers, we spent the rest of the afternoon doing this.
And then I got an early birthday gift from my friend Holly
My friend Jill has given me a blog award. I want to say thank you for thinking my blog was worthy of mention. Instead of selecting other blogs to award, I will do a post soon to share other blogs that I have found of particular interest to me. It is always fun to find new blogs. Thank you Jill!!!!
I have a fun and busy week with birthday celebrations!!! Last night I had dinner with 5 of my gal pals for my birthday. We went for Chinese food and it was such a great meal, and great time!!! I have known these ladies since jr. high!!!!! I am having lunch with my girlfriend Sue tomorrow, and dinner with my fellow birthday girl Jae on Friday night. On Thursday, my actual birthday, we are all going to my daughter Gennifer's house for dinner. Looking forward to all of it!!
That's about it from here. What is going on in your neck of the woods?
