And for today's quote.....
Hello friends *waves really hard*
And by friends I mean you! Anyone reading this!
April seems to have floated away before I could quite grasp it in both hands!
SOOOOOOOO much has happened, so many lovely things!
I have tried to caprture the moments, but so many floated by before I could click the shutter! Here is to a beautiful, whirling month. To God be the Glory!
1. Our church hosted a Jane Austen Tea Party...we worked so hard, making decorations, putting raffle basket together, preparing food! It was such a blessing!
2. Surprisingly, got some personal sewing done despite work and so much craziness!
Made a new silk Civil War skirt and a floral and coral summer outfit, plus finished my first (red, black and white!) Folklorico dance costume!
Had to share also a butterfly t-shirt I made for the theatre I work at, I made a dozen or so of these for the kids we work with and tried on the largest size...woosh, I could fly away!
3. Had a civil War tea Party with some friends to commemorate the end of the Civil Way, April 9th!
ball soup in the days following becuase I could not get enough at our church
My dear Mommsy also made some DELICIOUS stuffed bell peppers! New fav dish!
5. I *finally* got a C.W union hat to go with my Confederate hat! Call me crazy people, but I was thrilled! I mounted them proudly in my room!
My dear Padre proudly wore the Yankee hat and his Gettysburg t-shirt at a local reenactment and I was so happy! Does he not look handsome?
And, as a last thought, since we are into May, I had a wonderful Cinco de Mayo with my Baile Folklorico (Mexican folk dance) class! We danced at an old folks home!
Much love to you all! Blessing upon you!
I know this is the National Day of Prayer, so I hope everyone is praying for our country!
Please let me know the most exciting thing(s) that happned in your April!
