LUNCH WITH FRIENDS.

image

Good evening; So dear friends how is the weather where you are?? I talked to my daughter yesterday and she said that her Tulips are popping up,,, she was so excited,, she is back in Ind… and today they were getting sunshine and in the 60’s not too bad… Sure hope that this is the last of winter,, we are getting rain here, and maybe a thunderstorm tomorrow and Fri. That I can live with. We have Cherry trees here in the complex,, and they have bloomed so pretty,, they really don’t get cherries.. and some of the other plants are showing some of their color, I will have to take my camera out and take a few photos to share.. We are hoping that we can make a trip back home around Easter,, I can’t wait to see all my babies, hope they have not forgotten us….. and to bring the rest of our things back… I so can’t wait to have them here..

Yesterday I met my friend Cindy in Rock Hill, and we met up with 5 other ladies at Stake and Shake for lunch. It was so nice to get out and meet new friends. They were all just so sweet and kind, then we went to a Nursing Home to host a Tea and Cookie with a game of Trivia. We had such a fun time with them. I was talking with a Gentleman who was 94, and his memory was so amazing, he was telling me about his job with GE, and how they sent him all over the country.. He even spent some time in South America,, and London. I was so amazed at how his memory was, heck mine is not as good as his,,,,,, lol  The Home was so pretty, they are redoing all the rooms making them more nicer for them,,,, how great is that.. There was another  gentleman he  was so funny,, he just cracked us up… It was such a lovely time talking with them,,, serving Tea and Cookies to them… The Girls do this every Tues.. so I have joined with them,, they even pick a day and go and visit a resident and take them for a walk and spend time with them…. they are such a wonderful group of Ladies..

So after spending a few hrs. there we parted, and Cindy and I went to this little Antique shop, I found something that is just perfect for Pink Sat. sorry dear friends but you will have to wait until then….. hehehe  I know I am a stinker……………………………….

Then we went to Tuesday Morning,,,, I love that store, we found lot’s of pretties there, wish I could have gotten them all…. There was so much for the garden and flower beds,,, gorgeous flower pot’s,, I found some pretties there and they begged me to take them home,,, so I just could not refuse them,, and away we all went…. I did take a few photos to share,,, and then I forgot to take photos the the rest of them…. I will have to do another post on those….  So with out further delay,,,,, here they are……

I love your new rooster plate. Our weather has been good, but still a little rain and cool breeze. My tulips are peaking out of the dirt, so it won't be long. Oh, and the header picture on this post is adorable. Have a great rest of the week. Mumzie

HI!!!!
That is so cool the lunch you had with new friends, were they blogger friends????And to go and spend the day with seniors in a retirment home, what a dear saint you are, they So love having visitors and they love to talk and tell their stories!!! I worked for almost 6 years at a bank in a Retirement community, I got so close to so many of them, I used to say they would come to the bank everyday just to chat and have some where to go!!!
I feel so bad for my Mom she lives in MO, but with very little family around, I know that is why she has 1 dog and 2 cats, she feels needed then, sad huh???
Have a great almost spring week!!!
hugs,
jamie

My family is all in Indiana, I'll have to ask my sis if her tulips are coming up. Mine sure are not! I'm wondering when Spring will ever come.

It is 'SO' time for me to go back to our antique barn for treasures like yours.

Hi, I was stopping by from Sherry's blog and see that you are in North Carolina. Oh, how I love it there. That is my home. My folks are all from White Lake/Bladen County. My husband and I left Chapel Hill for Utah, for a job opportunity, 12 years ago and I miss it very much.

Have you ever been to White Lake?

Have a great day!

I love your rooster finds! I use to have oodles of them in my kitchen but I changed over to chili peppers and only have a few of them left. Having lunch with friends is the best! Hope you have a great weekend. Hugs
