Lovely afternoon spent with family and friends!

Today Jenny, my youngest daughter was hosting the knitting group at her house. She did a great job at making food for us. She made cucumber sandwiches, deviled eggs, pasta salad, chips and dip and lemon cupcakes with little red poppies on the top. Everything was so good! There were 8 of us all together and we knitted, chatted, played with Owen and just plain enjoyed being with each other. Megan, my oldest daughter joined us too! It was really good to see her. She was making her Spring wreath for her front door while we knitted away. She found the wreath on It is made out of eyelash yarn that is bright green and there are little daisies on it. It looks really cute!!

Here is what the wreath looks like (photo via

My friend, Julie rode up to Jenny's with me and after we left Jenny's we rode by my new neighborhood and saw where we will be building our new house. She really liked it alot.

After I got home, I cooked John and I some dinner and then I packed up all my Christmas dishes in the Dining Room cupboard and all of John's grandmother's china. That was no small fete let me tell you!

We will be moving into an apartment until October when our house will be complete. We need to be out of here by 5/1! YIKES, I better get sorting and packing!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

Congratulations on the new home! I feel like I've been away for so long, just catching up and visiting.

Sounds like a fun time with the knit group, Sherri. I love the spring wreath! And Jenny's food sounded delicious. How nice to have both your girls with you (and Owen, of course).

It sounds like a wonderful day. When you moved into your current home last year, did you unpack everything? Or did you know you would be moving again and leave some things in boxes?

That wreath is so cute! And you will be the most organized woman on the planet having done a few moves in such a short time.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
