It has been a beautiful Easter Day. We made it a family day, and just spent time together. PJ and ETJ even helped peel the potatoes... I made scalloped potatoes from scratch for the first time. They were so good. PJ had picked up a ham from Smoky Davis and pies from Marie Callendar. It was the easiest holiday meal I've ever had to do. PJ also made French Toast and bacon breakfast! I felt very pampered today!
I spent some time thinking about my upcoming art projects. I'm going to design some greeting cards. If they turn out well, I may be creating and selling them on eBay. If not, family and friends will receive them anyway! I have a certain look in mind, and I'm hopeful that I can accomplish it.
I have a huge photo project that I need to complete first. I'm scanning old slides and negatives, then I make prints of some to share with family. I love my scanner! It does this even better than I had hoped.
Thought a lot about Mom this weekend. Her birthday would have been yesterday. She's been gone almost five years now. I still miss her, though it's not that heartwrenching missing like it was at first. I'd just like to have a nice chat over coffee or a trip to Savers with her. Last week ETJ and my niece went with me to the new Savers Grand Opening. They had some really good "junk"! I love secondhand stores and yard sales! I found a couple of treasures to take home for under $10.00! One person's junk....
Well, I'm off for a bit of cleaning before turning in for the night.
