Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mothers Day Week

Well the end of the week was rainy,windy and way below normal temps. So for me it means keeping busy inside. I did some quilting and baking. The day before Mother's Day was really pretty and you could tell with all the people at the campground. Everyone was out and enjoying the great outdoors. Kids biking, people fishing and boating, it nice to see families enjoying this nice park.

We had planned to have a Mother's Day get together at Justin's place. Guess what it's raining on Mother's Day. We brought back fish, shark, and a couple lobster tails. That's what we are cooking. Both my boys were there and my daughter in law. We were joined by Katie's mom and sister. The food was great, we tried some new things... And enjoyed some of our favorite things as well. The weather was lousy that's for sure.

We left to come back home with our grand daughter, her mom has to travel for work so we are her daycare for the next 4 days. The weather was still really cool with rain. We kept ourselves busy inside with movies and watching the birds. We have a couple hummingbird feeders, one is on our window. We also have a couple other feeders. What I learned is that orioles like hummingbird nectar. They would land on the feeder at the window drink and then peck on the window so you would look at them. With all the yucky weather I also finished my quilt I've been working on. Thursday the day we took Hailey back home it rained most of the day. Our power kept going out so Jeff would have to go reset the breaker. It's pretty annoying. It quit for awhile but it went off at 3a.m. When the power goes out the refrigerator beeps. Again out to reset. It went off a couple more times. We called the park manager and she had an electrician come take a look. Kinda annoying but I'm sure we'll get it taken care of. I'm hoping that this weather will change... I'm ready for some sunshine and warmer temps....bring it on...
