Picnics In The Park…Or In Your Own Back Yard!

I have always loved picnics!  A warm, sunny Spring day or weekend is a perfect time for me to pack up a picnic basket and enjoy the wonderful sunshine or the cool evening breezes in the park or in your own back yard.

No special occasion needed…in fact the more spontaneous the better.  The Captain and I don’t need an excuse to have a picnic.

Getting A Head Start on Cinco de Mayo!

I am Getting A Head Start on Cinco de Mayo, my dear readers!

Perhaps it is because the Captain and I absolutely love Mexican food any day of the week …

Or perhaps it is because of the years I lived in New Mexico and cooked Mexican food almost daily…

Or perhaps it is because I have several projects going on at the same time here at “Villa de la Luna” that Mexican food is a fast and easy meal to prepare.

Or perhaps it is all of the above.

Easter Sunday Scripture….Luke 24:34

Today is Easter Sunday….and what a beautiful day it is here in Florida!

Happy Easter dear readers! May God bless you and show Himself to you today!

“It is true! The Lord has risen indeed!”   Luke 24:34

So Much To Do…And A New Office Project!

Is it just me or are you also finding you have so much to do and Less and Less Time to get it done?

I remember back to when my office work day consisted of at least 8 hours, more like 9 or even 10 hours and yet I managed to work full time, come home do laundry, clean house and still have time for family and friends.

Now that I have retired…there does not seem to be enough hours in a day to get everything I would like to do ….done or finished.

I Love Daisies! And I Love This Easy Recipe For Making Them!

Sing with me……

Daisy, Daisy, give me you answer true.
I’m half-crazy all for the love of you.
It won’t be a stylish marriage,
I can’t afford a carriage;
But you’ll look sweet
Upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two.

I love daisies!!!!
