Baby O and I got up early this morning to watch the royal wedding. I could not help but remember years ago and watching Will's mother and father on that same balcony kissing. It was a little sad wondering what Diana would have thought of her new daughter in law. How proud she would be of the man William seems to have become. I hope and pray that the world has learned something from Diana's unfortunate death and these two will be successful in their marriage. I hope that this princess will be better prepared for the public life ahead and I wish them happiness for a lifetime.
On another note please pray for all those that have suffered both loss of life and loss of homes in the horrible weather of the last week. Spring can not only be beautiful but very cruel sometimes.
It has rained here most of the week but I am thankful that most of the tornadoes and really bad weather seems to have missed us. The rivers and creeks are out but seem to be receding now. I have spent my time during this rainy spell catching up on housework and spring cleaning. I washed all the linens from Easter and put all the Easter decorations and baskets away for another year. I have been cleaning out china cabinets and doing lots of dusting and waxing this week.
It was wonderful watching Baby Hank dye eggs for the first time.
And my cheesecake turned out wonderful! For the recipe go HERE
The leftover ham is all packaged and in the freezer. The bone for beans and the meat for casseroles and salad.
Recently I attended a gathering at a neighbors house and as I sat at one table the woman at the next table very loudly ran down a poorer family in town who had made the TV news for going to a large church in the city to procure free prom dresses for their two daughters. I listened to this woman groan and lament loudly over these people playing the system in her opinion. I simply sat there and ignored the conversation since it wasn't at my table or directed toward me and I simply had nothing to add to her tirade. It pretty well reeked of sour grapes if you know where I am coming from....
They never said a word. What started out as me pointing out a lesson for my daughter ended up being a very valuable lesson that was taught to me.
Gosh I love that kid : ) We are truly thankful for such a gentle soul in one so young.
