Chit chat

Well another holiday is behind us. Whew. If you haven't figured it out by now, I am NOT a holiday person, preferring to skip them all together. As crazy as it sounds. Halloween is really the only one I like. For the sake of family though I do celebrate the major ones such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Rebecca got a surprise to start off her day when her boyfriend snuck a 8 week old kitten in the bed with her.


I’m not really sure how thrilled she was, since they already have two cats, but I know he will get a good home. As of last night he was still nameless, but she was leaning towards Sebastian.

My grandson was excited to get his Easter basket and was on a sugar high most of the day.  I think he enjoyed playing with the bucket the candy came in almost as much as the candy itself.




Cody had dyed some eggs yesterday at his Papa’s house (my ex), but I wanted to share that with him also, so we did some more this morning.


We baled a ham and had a nice lunch then hid the eggs.




IMG_7209 We watched Twilight again since the guys had not seen it, then later in the day went to the park to enjoy a bit of sun.


Newport News Park is a favorite of mine, and I never miss a chance to go down to the water.IMG_7258


While we were there I was lucky enough to spot this Heron



After we walked around there awhile we went over to the playground and let Cody play.


By then our day was gone, so we went back to the house and helped clean up a bit and came home.

This evening my hubby and I have just sat around and watched TV. It feels good to be lazy after such a busy day.

Sounds like a great day. I watched to kill a mocking bird a then slept all day. Didn't really realize it was Easter until I got a text message from a blog buddy. Hey Patty, if I ever make it out that way, will you meet me? I have a few friends that live there and you inspire me so much and I would love to meet you.

Is the kitty totally black? I named my mom's black kitty "salem". It was only appropriate. LOL

If that's the kitten in the picture he looks like a Sebastian to me! My new black cat is Barnabas.

Sounds like you had a lovely Easter. I didn't get a single Peep or colored egg ... sigh! I'm kind of with you, though, on preferring to give holidays a pass these days.

That heron picture is spectacular! Such detail!

I don't mine the holiday except for memorial day in may.
With work and taking care of life in general I don't have time to do much on the holiday.

My easter went well and coffee is on.

Your grandson is such a little darling and I just loved the pictures of him hunting for Easter eggs:-) I can't wait until Lily is old enough to enjoy stuff like that. Sounds like you had a lovely Easter and spending it with family makes it even better!! xoxo

You used your Easter well! Love the bucket on the head - a sure sign of a sugar high.
Happy (belated) holiday!

So glad you had such a nice Easter. Cody looked like he was having so much fun. That's a wonderful pcture of the heron.
