It is Spring on my Blog!!



I really appreciate all of your compliments regarding the new Spring look on my blog. The header is the 2nd one that Heather made for me. She really is very talented.
Even though it seems like Spring and Winter are still playing tug of war here in Michigan, I've decided that Spring has won!

Thank You Dolores and Shawn!



Thank you for this quilt square Dolores and Shawn. My picture doesn't do it justice here. It is very cute!

The dinner went great. We actually ended up going to an Italian Restaurant. Thank you for all of your kind words and advice. You all are such a great support system for me!

Business Dinner Tonight


My boss called and asked me if I would mind having dinner with his good friend who is the Regional Sales Director for the company that I work for. He is in town tonight, so Tim and I are going to take him to a restaurant called Bonefish. Hopefully we will have a delightful dinner. I must admit that I am a little nervous.......

Spring Break.....Going Anywhere?



The ice on the lake is melting. The snow is disappearing and I can feel Spring trying to push its way through. I am so weary from the long winter and all of the sickness that it brought with it.
In two weeks I'll be sitting beside the ocean. I need our Spring Getaway desperately. Are any of you getting away for a vacation this Spring?

Check your Vehicle.....You May Be Able to Use Ethanol Fuel

I was at the gas station today with Zachary waiting to get a car wash and he was looking through my drivers manual. Come to find out, my 2003 Yukon XL can take Ethanol Fuel. We had to check my VIN number and it matches the group of trucks made that year that can take the newer fuel. I'm sure you all know that Ethanol costs less and is less harmful to the environment. It also supports American farmers which is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts since we live in a farming area.

Forgiveness..My Sunday Sermon I Guess


I found this somewhere out in blogland and love it. I don't have a lot of time to post, so I think this will be good for today. I have been a prisoner myself, the quote is really true.
