GOSH, here it is the week end again! I get up and it’s Monday and before I know it is Friday again. Like my Grandma used to say, “TIME FLIES WHEN YOU ARE HAVING FUN”.

The only thing that happened is we didn’t really have that much fun. We stopped by the Daughter’s house on the way home and you got it! The Hubby just had to say it, “what on earth has happened here”! Did the Easter Bunny had a fit here and drop all his Easter Eggs. You noticed he said HE, since when is the Easter Bunny a male?

I have never seen so much beauty in one place. Her Butter Cups were blooming all over the place. Mother Nature has really been busy. If you have flowers in your yard, I truly hope they are blooming. I guess she is trying to make up for all that bad weather we had this winter. I got a feeling she is going to have to give us a wonderful spring before we forgive her. I got a feeling everyone has her on their BAD LIST.

One other idea I will pass on to you, her trees seem to turn a sea of color. Out next to the road, she had little colored plastic Easter Eggs hanging from the branches. They are beautiful. I had never seen this before. She said she heard about it on television and thought she would try it. They just float in the breeze and make you just have a HAPPY FEELING.

But of course the smile left our faces when the Daughter said, man, “I am so glad you are here”. She said the winter was so bad while we were gone that all these limbs were all over her yard. She thought it was wonderful that we dropped by to help her out with this next project. Of course the Hubby had to get in on the act and said, “You should have been picking up sticks” instead of hanging up Easter Eggs; for some reason that changed the moment real quick. I told him he could have talked all day and not said that!

You guessed it, out came the two wheel cart and I put on my gloves and we went to work. Now it is really beautiful. But there is only one problem. There is not a spot on me that does not hurt. I told both of them, “MY FAT HURTS”. I won’t mention what their reply was…..I am afraid the editor would edit it!

Well, the Hubby was such a wonderful trooper; I told him I would treat him to a steak at his favorite restaurant. He had to inform me that he knew I would say that, since they don’t serve steak at his favorite restaurant. I forgot he loves McDonalds!

So we decided to treat the Hubby to a trip to Bass Pro. You know what that store sells. His face just lit up when I mentioned this.

We all jumped in the car and off we went down the freeway and all of a sudden the traffic stopped. We thought there was a wreck up in front of us. NO WAY, we found out that everyone was going to the same place we were. Finally after waiting forever to get off the freeway, we drove through the parking lot and you guessed it! NOT A PARKING SPACE TO BE FOUND. We noticed that even their extra parking lot was full. There was a travel trailer parked and they had their picnic table out and were having a picnic right in the parking lot. Of course, the Hubby said, “I HAVE SEEN IT ALL!” And with that we simply turned left and drove back on the freeway and came home. For some reason there wasn’t as many cars going in that direction.

Of course we were so surprised. He said, “If all the parking spots are filled; guess what it looks like inside that store”!” Poor Baby, he’s got a big case of SPRING FEVER. It comes around every year just about this time. It’s just before the water goes down low enough that he can get out there and “WET A LINE”. This is his favorite saying.

So if your Hubby is having an anxiety attack, just remind him he has all summer to catch all the fish in my absolute favorite LAKE MALONE.

I hope you enjoy every precious moment of spring. It comes only once a year. Then we have the RED HOT SUMMER. Bye Now!
