Pear tree lane farmhouse

Hi! from me to you

Written by Sue, Tuesday, March 21, 2017     Sunny, 80's

After such a long absence how does one begin, again in Blogland, as is the case with me! If I were to update all that has been going on, the page would not hold it, nor your attention, some interesting things have happened, some not so! More about that later. One thing for sure life goes on. I learned a long time ago that life did not evolve around me, though I was a big part of life!~smile~



Soooo let's begin now...
Yesterday, Susan and I did some tweaking and Spring decorating around the farmhouse, our tastes are  similar, therefore it is easy and fun!
This was our first try at decorating the foyer, hmmm, not quite what we wanted

This was our second choice, I liked this better, but there still seems to be something not right! So we will let it rest for a few days!🎢🎢🌸🌺

Redoing the mantle was next, still not sure.. The sign on the hearth I put up for Valentines's Day, and had taken it down, but Susan liked it so much, saying "mother this is yours and daddy's story", so I put it back, it will stay for a little while, to be replaced as soon as I can find something else!😘❤️

Later on, DH and I met  Susan for lunch and then we all visited two nursing facilities! Very upscale, so nice, quiet, and very professional, we visited a dear lady in our church, who is 91 who had fallen and broken her hip, she is not doing well, after a short visit and prayer we were off to visit DH's aunt at a local facility! She is also 91 and doing quite well, and was so happy to see us, our visit was longer, with lots of hugs! We also visited  with other residents, there is such a need in nursing facilities, if you or your church have an opportunity to visit please do! Sadly, some folks have no family, and some are just forgotten,therefore they are very lonely!

The evening was so nice, the sun was shinning and had warmed up considerably (60's), I decided it was time for no more excuses for not walking, I will admit I have been so lax in exercising, which is a no no for me!  So off I went, 2.5 miles under my belt or should I say feet, and will admit, there were times when I didn't know if I was going to finish. ha ha

Afterward, We decided it would be a great time to have a fire outside in the fire pit,(haven't done this in a while). There is something about sitting by a fire that is so soothing, it causes one to do a lot of thinking and reflecting, the air was crisp, the sound was very quiet! Each of us spoke of how blessed we were to be able to enjoy special moments like this!

The rest of the evening was business as usual, bath, light dinner, and bedtime, and now that is history!
Until next time,
 Blessings,
Sue
