Weekend update a little late!

Our Sunday afternoon

We had lovely afternoon on Sunday with the children. We spent a great deal of time drinking home made lemonade and eating home made pimento cheese as we watched the children play.
It was wonderful and how I wish you could have joined us!

I think we are back up and going here at the blog plantation, please forgive me for once again being absent. It may be intermittent for the next couple of months until I replace this computer. I am planning on Tablescape Thursday tomorrow and Foodie Friday, so I hope to see all of you then! Please know if there is a sudden absence, I have most likely gotten blocked out again.
Be blessed!

So how did I come to have an attitude of gratitude? My answer would be very simple, by the blood of Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Savior and I try to live for him in all things. I often stumble and Satan often finds a foothold in me, but I try. I try not to complain and my sins are washed away by his blood. Of which I am eternally grateful!

I apologize for my sudden absence! Thank all of you for coming by to see me even though I have not posted. So let's get to what we missed!
1. April 3 was my bloggerversary. I was so sad not to be able to blog that day! After a year of blogging and a 2 week absence I know that I am totally addicted. And I love all 17,000 visitors that have graced the blog plantation!
2. Easter ~Happy Easter to all of you. I hope it was wonderful!
3. All the Foodie Fridays and Thrifty Thursdays and tablescape thursdays I missed made me so sad

Last night attended the "Tea Party" here in Birmingham. It was so much fun and I hope effective! Thank goodenss Laura Beth was able to go with me. I have so enjoyed working with the SCGOP!
