Family Easter

Remembering that the simple things in life are often times the best.  Enjoy your Sunday and those around you!

Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.
Walk softly and carry a big carrot.
Everyone needs a friend who is all ears.
There’s no such thing as too much candy.
All work and no play can make you a basket case.
A cute little tail attracts a lot of attention.
Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.
Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.
Some body parts should be floppy.
Keep your paws off other people’s jellybeans.
Good things come in small sugar-coated packages.
The grass is always greener in someone else’s basket.
An Easter bonnet can tame even the wildest hare.
To show your true colors – you have to come out of your shell.
The best things in life are still sweet and gooey.

French Girls

Even little French girls enjoy their Quiche & Croissants! And they look so cute doing it too, I might add!

I took a walk around the neighborhood today and was greeted with flowers everywhere I turned!

Thoughts on My Return

I returned home early yesterday morning 8 hours late due to a mouse. This little guy & possibly his whole family chewed through the electrical wiring of our Lufthansa plane in Germany. They discovered this after we were all aboard and the captain announced that we would need to find a new plane. I was actually quite happy that they discovered this "problem" while we were still on the ground as opposed perhaps to being over the Atlantic Ocean or Greenland! Most of you know that I am not a relaxed flyer. Although I do love to experience other parts of the world, I am not crazy about being up in a little tube with hoards of people and just what does keep that plane up in the air anyway? What I realized this trip is that our lives are hanging by a thread or in this case, an electrical wire and we had better make the most of it. So today I am going to enjoy my beautiful garden that came into full bloom while I was away!
