Do you remember the feeling in your heart the first time you held your newborn child in your arms?  I remember this feeling of complete awe.  Wondering, can I do this?  Can I be a mom to this perfect creature God gave to me?

Thrifting at The Veranda

See this girl?  Love her!  I got to spend all day with her yesterday!   Anytime my adult children want to spend the day with me is a day in paradise!  It does not happen often enough!

Honey-do list at The Veranda

I want to vent for just a minute.  I am sooooo frustrated with myself.  I still cannot find my camera cord!  You know when you put something someplace because you think you will remember it being there?  Yeah, well that's what I thought I did, but it's not there.  I will continue my search (my house is only 1200 sq. ft. for crying out loud.  Not too many places it could be!), but in the meantime I tried looking on-line to purchase a new one.  No luck so far in my search.  I can find my camera, but no cords.  So I put My Love on the job.  He will find a compatible cord, or the original cord.  Either way, I know he will fix this for me.  He always does!

Happy Mother's Day!

How was your Mother's Day?  I worked in long-term care for many years as an Activity Director.  I loved it!  Every year we would have a Mother's Day Tea, in honor of Moms everywhere.  I remember some of the residents telling me they couldn't attend because they weren't a Mother.  I told them that was nonsense!  Everyone has a Mother, so we all should celebrate this day!  Where would we be without our Moms?

Friday Evening on the Veranda

Happy Friday Evening!  Are you enjoying the start to your weekend?  Any plans for the night?  We are getting ready to watch this week's Idol episodes.  I still don't know who went home this week, and please don't tell!!!  Our winner this year is Candice!  She is incredibly talented, and whenever we hear her sing we are mesmerized!

Creating on the Veranda

Have you heard of Cre8time?  It is a movement launched by the Craft and Hobby Association, dedicated to encourage creativity in all of us.  I must say, I went to the website, and I joined.  And that is all I've done.  Well, not really.  I have been creating, but I haven't shared it on the site.  Instead, I want to share with you.

Coffee on the Veranda....

I love coffee!!!  Nothing fancy, just plain ole' Chock full o' nuts!  Add a little sugar, some fat free French Vanilla Cream, and I am in heaven!!!

When I was a little girl, I remember my mom getting together with neighbor-ladies for a cup of coffee.  Sometimes they would enjoy iced tea, but usually it was coffee.  They would sit at the kitchen table sipping away, while catching up on the latest news.  Often, they would work on some sort of crochet or embroidery project.  Those are good memories.
