Sunshine and Daffodils

We have had some gorgeous weather these past few days. Sunshine. Spring. 70 degree temperatures. Longer days, thanks to daylight savings. Daffodils blooming.

 
And now the forecast is for rain and cold tomorrow. Darn! I knew it couldn't last!
 

 
A good friend of mine sent me this Lenten cross along with the readings
and accessories. I think it is the nicest gift that anyone ever gave me.
 

 
Last weekend I took my three oldest grandchildren (ages 5,6 & 9) to see a local high school production of "Shrek, the Musical". It was hilarious and so much fun! I was so proud of the
kids because they were very well-behaved through the (almost) three hour production.
One of the characters, who played the midget Lord Farquard (on his knees, in a costume), intrigued my grandson. He asked me, "Mawmaw, is he a grown-up?" This was their first play and they were enchanted  by the elaborate costumes and dance numbers.
 
 
 
 

Pictures

Growing up in my era we didn't take a lot of pictures. Of course, there were the school pictures, which I dreaded, and Mom rarely bought...
