Mom….I Am Really Missing You Today!

Mother’s Day is just a little over a week away and I can’t help thinking about my Mom, so I am setting a Mother’s Day tablescape with a few things that remind me of her.

And as I placed a crocheted doily on the table, I started to reminisce…..

Yes, there is a story to tell.

Movie Review…”The Case For Christ”!

This is another movie review…for the movie “The Case For Christ”…

It hasn’t been widely promoted, but the Captain had already decided that we needed to put this movie on our list of “go-to” movies.  

He researches everything…you know in that anal-pilot-sort-of-way, using the left side of his brain?  🙂  So about a month before the movie entered the theaters, he announced we should see it.

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.
