The weekend

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Despite the weather predictions that it would be storming all day Saturday it was a great day! I spent most of the day in and out of the kitchen preparing my Easter dinner. I wanted to be able to enjoy the short time I would have with my family on Sunday when they arrived. The sun was shining and it warmed up to in the 70's. Pat enjoyed a bit of skeet shooting with a couple of boys that came over. He used my 20 gauge shotgun as the 12 has a bit of a kick and is a bit heavy. He did not want to test his back at all! The horses did not like that and came into the front field. Except for Belle. She stood there by the fence and watched them shoot. She is not gun shy. LOL.
Yesterday morning my daughter brought Brook home so she could get her basket and attend church with me. Brook was thrilled with her basket. She got a doll with a purple dress on. She is getting a nice collection of them. The bunny had left eggs laying around and she had no trouble finding them! We got dressed for church and off we went.
After church I finished up lunch. Nothing left to do except put the glaze on the ham and pop the squash casserole and the rolls in the oven. Pat had already turned the water on for the corn. Brook set the table. Everything went smoothly. LOL now I had told the kids to be here at 1. I knew they would be late so I did not plan to eat until 2 and I was right! They got here and hugs and kisses all around and then we sat down to eat. We had ham with honey and brown sugar glaze, potato salad, macaroni salad, squash casserole, green beans, corn on the cob, deviled eggs, rolls, and of course, Orange fluff. Everyone ate too much and then they went outside to ride the horses. I stayed in as it was way to windy for me! Lol it was for them too and they finished up fast and came back inside. The kids left to go over to his mams house and lol they were late there too. Poor things, they probably gained 10 pounds yesterday!
Anyway, the weekend was a wonderful time. Friends and family and good times make life so good. I am looking forward to many more!
Flylady would be happy with me. My sink was shining as I went to bed. I got up this morning and smiles because my kitchen was clean!
