This and That

We had a different Easter this year. Just me, Chuck and Beth. There were 3 services at church and I had to be there to disinfect after each one. Chuck and Beth helped this time too. Then we went out to breakfast and spent the rest of the day at home, watching movies and relaxing.

We recently bought some new blinds for our sliding door and the two big windows in the living room. They'll be delivered and then Lowes will come out and install them. These are the ones we got for the windows. The door will have vertical blinds... I'm so excited!!

Sharaya and Ally went to San Diego last weekend. They drove down with some friends and they drove straight through! It's 22 hours of driving, if I've remembered right. Chuck and I did that a few times but I remember the last time we did it. It was just too hard to keep our eyes open, too hard on our bodies without the rest we needed... oh to be young again! :)

Well anyway, Sharaya and Ally have had a blast down there! The resort they're staying at has a small water park along with the pool; they've been to the zoo, Balboa Park, the beach, they kayaked around La Jolla caves and even rode The Giant Dipper at Belmont Park!

This was built in 1925 and restored in 1993


Diana and Peter went camping over Easter weekend. I forgot to ask her where they went but she said they had fun! They're adjusting some wedding plans due to covid travel restrictions and make it easier for some family members to attend. I asked her if she's been shopping for dresses and she said no, but she did bring two wedding magazines on their camping trip. 😄

Well that's about it from our house. I'm getting a slow start on the yard work this year. We get a few days of rain, then sun. Then rain... I hope you're all having a wonderful start to spring!

Have you ever been camping?

Do you like roller coasters?

We like to camp and did a fair amount of tent camping when our girls were growing up. We haven't been in a long time but we look forward to taking our grands one of these days. We do a lot of road trips and always have. We used to just go but now after 8 hours I want out of the car. Have a great day!

Wait - Lowes will come out & install them???? I've been wanting those kind of blinds & Hubby doesnt want to deal with putting them in - I'll be more than happy to pay Lowes to come put them in - I just didnt know they did that!

No to camping, but I do like roller coasters! Although, the older I get, I'm starting to have some motion issues with coasters, but will still ride if given the chance. Glad your kids are having a good time.

Nice to be getting new blinds! We were lucky that all the windows in our "new" house (been here 4 years now) have really nice blinds. Fun trips, a good Easter, and nice photos!

It sounds like all has been well. Camping? Not so much. Roller coasters? Not at all!

Sounds like a lovely Easter day. Those blinds look awesome. I love the San Diego Zoo. The camping sounds like fun too! We use to go camping and then switched to cabins. Yes I love roller coasters but it has been many years since I've been on one. Enjoy your weekend.
