A Cold April!
If not for my many phone photos I'd have thought I didn't accomplish much during April. I hurt my back toward the beginning of the month and wasn't able to do outdoor work--and beyond that, our April was COLD. But I did entertain the grandkids pretty often, provided my middle grandson reading lessons (he's only five but he's ready to read), and as usual, I did a lot of cooking.
The collage at left is from Easter Sunday when we bravely (or stupidly) drove through ice and slush to get to our son and daughter-in-law's home an hour away in order to share Easter supper with them. Once there we had a lovely time with all the traditional dishes and then some; glazed ham, turkey, cheesy potatoes, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, orange fluff salad, spring greens salad, a fresh fruit platter, hot rolls, carrot cake and frozen yogurt.
Our son has grown a beard, and I have protested. I feel he is a handsome young man and that the beard hides his face. However, this photo of him with his two-year-old daughter was almost enough to make me like the beard. His love for his little girl is shining through here in a very Pa Ingalls-ish way.
