It's Spring!!!

The local college has a living museum called the U.C. Davis Arboretum. During the spring, some ducks come up into downtown. We often see them near the funeral home and this week, these two have spent quite a bit of time on our front lawn. They are so used to people that I was able to walk right up to them and take these pictures.

What Not to Wear

A couple weeks ago I asked sue for advise on some new work clothes. Next thing I knew we were on a shopping spree!!! I had a great time and believe it or not, Sue was not completely frustrated after spending a day shopping with ME!
Here is a sample of a few of the outfits we picked out.

We have had beautiful weather this week. The temperature has been in the low 70's. That's right, for those of you that have been excited about your 50 degree weather, I said 70 degrees!

Work has been a little slow so we spent a good part of Monday and Tuesday planting our flower beds. On Tuesday afternoon, Chandler wanted to help. He loves to garden and does a great job planting the flowers where he is directed to do so.

Well, I have now joined the blogging world! A few family members have told me I should start a blog. I hesitated because I only have myself to update about and that would just bore everyone! After some discussion with others, it was suggested that I could post quick and easy recipes for the busy people, riddles for the nieces and nephews, quotes for the week or any other non-sense (aka "poppycock") I wanted to. So here you go. I hope you all enjoy and, on occasion, I may include a photo or two!!!
