This and That

Today the surgeon took out the tube that went into his heart
that his antibiotics were hooked up to for the last 2 months.
The infection is gone and he can start swimming again. YEA!!
I have my honey back again!

Easter Sunday seemed to arrive so quickly this year. This is
a good week to watch Mel Gibson's movie, "The Passion" again.
It portrays it all so well.
And then there's the FUN part of Easter... dying eggs, our
Easter Tree, cut-out cookies and CHOCOLATE!!
Check out the Easter goodies sale at
These adorable nests filled with truffle-like eggs are on sale.
How cute to have one at each person's table setting.

And you can make cookies OR you can buy these on sale also.

In my world of Digital Scrapbooking, I have just started my 4th class from It's the advanced class and the last scrapping
class available. I learned so many new techniques in the first hour.
Below is a layout (nothing to do with my class) that I made with the
earliest photo I have of my Mom. Her mother died when she was 5
years old and the courts took her away from her father who worked
on a Norwegian fishing boat. She was raised in 13 foster homes
and never had her picture taken. This was the first. The last foster
parents and her church helped her through Nurse's Training at
Brooklyn Hospital, NY.

Have a wonderful Easter celebration!

What an Easter blessing to have Boyd back to good health. That's a great photo of him--very handsome man you have there.

Great to hear that Boyd is better. (Does he have Scottish blood, I wonder? Boyd is a Scottish name. It was my grandmother's maiden name and my dad's middle name.)
