Simply Saturday

Well, I slept in a little later than I had planned. I went to my friends house Teresa today. She is hemming Eleni's dress for me. She is not only a great friend but a great seamstress. We visited with her for a bit and did some catching up. Teresa and I had become really close and after losing Ray I pushed everyone away. I just didn't want to be bothered. Although I have never felt that way about my friends it was easier to be alone. So it was good just hanging out with her for a little bit. My girls also love her she is so good to them!
After visiting with Teresa we went to tan. I just find this so relaxing. I know it's not good for you but hey what is anymore? Our next stop was the grocery store. I hate the grocery store! It cost so much to eat and drive. I don't know what we are going to do with things going up and our pay checks staying the same. I will be honest some days I really worry about the future of this Country.

After all my running it was home for the evening. Eleni is out with her boyfriend. Jessica is out seeing Hunger Games with a friend. It was just me and the pets. I fixed me a sandwich watched some TV. Then I started a puzzle worked on that while watching the movie Selena. I then washed a load of clothes and packed a couple of boxes. I figure if I do a little everyday it won't be so overwhelming when it's time to move. Still not sure where we will end up but I'm not to stresses at the moment. Now I'm catching up on FB, Gmail, and blogs. I thought I would do a quick post.

I have heard mixed feelings about this early Spring we have been having. I can only say I am loving it. I love the time change I wish it was like this all year. I love seeing the sun when I get off and enjoying it when I get home. The Winter months really bring me down. I sleep a lot and hate to go out. When it's warm I try to get up earlier and enjoy the beautiful days. I know Summer may be a beast this year but it's better than the cold. Plus everything is so much prettier and cheerful. I love seeing all the flowers bloom and the azalea bushes and trees in bloom. Makes me a little happy and we all know how much I need that these days. Well, I won't keep you all any longer. I think I'm going to work on my puzzle for a bit. Happy Spring Everyone!

Yep, I get the winter blues, too!!
Im loving the early Spring.
Today isnt too warm here, well..
I think it is in the 60's but after 2 weeks of temps in the 80's, it feels cool outside to me.

But I'll take 60 and rainy over 20 and icy, any day!!! :)

Have a fabulous Sunday.

Happy spring to you too Donna. We had been having warm weather here in Pa. but now it is back in the 50's and damp, a big difference from upper 70's. Now the weather guys are calling for 2 night of below freezing weather. Sad to say it will kill all things in bloom.

Good to hear from you again.

I for one am loving the warmth. Finally Spring is here for us. Packing little by little is really a good idea. That's how I did our last move and it really saved a bunch of time and effort. Have a happy day. -Steph-

morning donna~i am glad to hear that yiu were able to get out with your girlfriend and do some relaxing tanning.Its true it is very calming and relaxing.I have battled depression for years and have been on several medications and tanning helps BUT now that I am pregnant I cant but sittingout in the sun does calm the nerves.Shane actually bought me a tanning bed and that was awesome but we sold it then relized with the price of everything going up we best stop and save that money.
I use to love going shopping but not anymore.I feel like I am letting down my family by seeing the TOTAL Itry to save with coupons and not get certain things but hey it is what it is and getting scarier now with baby #2 on the way.
Lots of Love

I am really enjoying this spring weather too. The sunshine just brings more cheerfulness!

I'm glad to hear you and your friend, Teresa spent some time together! That's good for you.

And like you, we really do worry about the future of our country. It actually keeps Jason awake at night....that and his dad right now.

Hope you have a Happy Easter and a wonderful weekend!
