I always think I'll have time to sit down and blog over the weekend or on Monday nights but since I've been taking this class . . .I have homework! My husband thinks it is so funny to ask me if my homework is done before we turn on the TV or before I do something fun! This post is a photo dump along with some details - mainly for me so I can remember life!
So here goes . . .I think I mentioned this in a previous post but we had a few events to celebrate and a couple of weekends ago we tried out a "new to us" restaurant -- The Front Porch at Ross Bridge. We loved it. Our daughter, son-in-law, and grandbaby #2 were here for the weekend so they were able to go with us.

The very next night, we went to another of our neighborhood supper clubs. I've enjoyed these so much. I think I've enjoyed them more than Mark but he has been a good sport about it. The hostess provides the main dish and it was a chicken and broccoli braid. It was good!
I didn't take the following picture but it was on Wednesday night. The doors to the left of the photo are the doors into our church Welcome Center plus the offices where I work. The sanctuary stained glass windows are the top windows to the right. Isn't this a cool photo? Multiple people captured this image.
I did not make this veggie tray but I might make one next year -- isn't it cute for St. Patrick's day? Speaking of St. Patrick's day, we had a zoom call with our friends we met on our trip to Ireland. We all watched the movie Belfast and talked about it along with sharing how we are all doing, etc. John, our fearless leader, timed the call to fall the day after St. Patrick's day so that was fun.
I got a pedicure. I don't know what it is about a pedicure and a leg massage but for just a little while . . .all is right in my world. Silly? Maybe.
Remember I shared about granddaughter #1's birthday party here? We celebrated her birthday at my mother-in-law's house on Sunday of that weekend. We celebrate all family birthdays on Sundays! My sister-in-law made the cutest cake for her! She had a stack of presents and she wanted to measure the height of the stack by her height! She is much loved. You can see her sweet great grandmother sitting in the background. We are trying to include Mark's momma in as many events as possible.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I made a WW (weight watchers) Shepherd's Pie to take in my lunches.

which is a rare thing for me.
