 True Words, Indeed!

Our Sunday started with breakfast at First Watch!

We got our hummingbird feeder out and set that up so 
that we could be ready for those swift beauties!
They are expected to return to Ohio mid to the end
of April, so we're just on time!

Then we went to Barrio's in Lakewood for dinner with Jess!
She's here visiting for a week!

Lude and I made a quickie trip to visit the girls in Chicago this past weekend.
We're so glad to have been able to be there to see how they're doing and spend some time with them.  And, they're doing well.

The girls wanted Lude to cook them up some of his famous barbeque ribs which were wonderful!

We got to attend their new church, St James the Less, where on Sunday, they held a fun pizza and cake party in honor of Kathleen and her new roll as Director of Youth ministries.




We had dinner on Sunday evening at Lady Gregory's,
a wonderful Irish restaurant in Lakeview


Phoebe's doing great as well!


We played a few games on Saturday night and I
forgot just how much that I liked playing Yahtzee!

Till next time.....which, I think will be Mother's Day weekend!!!
So, I was having my coffee this morning and watching the Fox8 Morning show and they had THE FAB FOUR as guests...broadcasting from the Rock Hall of Fame. 

 This is THE FAB FOUR on the Morning Show
 


 It's exciting because tonight, we went to the Rocksino to see them!  We met Donna and Jeff at Bone Fish Grill for dinner before heading to the concert!  It was, as always a very fun night with them.  And, THE FAB FOUR?  Were awesome!

So, just when I was feeling really proud of myself and my daily walking, I broke my toe!!!  I'm preparing for a Chicago 5K (hey, I gotta start somewhere!!) and I'm up to about 3 miles in under an hour which is good for me.  And now?  I'm up to about nothing on the rocks!  On with the ice, off with the ice!  I know that everyone's probably broken a toe or two in their lifetime but, God Bless ya, it hurts like a son of a gun!

I want to wish our Godchild, Molly, a very happy
16th birthday!  What a milestone!
You've come a long way.
You've become a wonderful young lady!

Happy Birthday girl!

170 Days Until

I'm Getting Ready!

So, I was excited to get back on Facebook after Lent and had a heck of a time catching up with all the photos. I decided that I wouldn't load it on my phone or on my iPad but would just look at it when I started up my computer which is normally at night in front of the TV.  But, that didn't last long and I found myself spending too much time on there again.  So, I'm off again.  I truly feel more focused and get more accomplished when I don't have the whole FB thing to think about. 
I was almost there!!!!
