Highs & Lows

Dinner with our company went very well last night. I think because it wasn't planned to death and we just let things happen, we were all more relaxed.

Today we completed a Freecycle give away. I had posted for pick up only, but I'm a real softie
at heart. She has 3 little ones and trying to coordinate that and a trip to our place wasn't going to be easy. I don't like going back on my word so once I found out the area she lives in, I asked DH to take the 4 poster double bed to work with him so she could meet there. Made her commute almost minutes long/short!, and it really wasn't out of our way. To top it off, I got a lovely email thank you from her...her 4 year old son has just moved into a big bed with his younger brother...ahhh....I'm so glad I didn't brush her off and move to the next applicant. I passed the thank you on to DH so he could feel the love!

I just learned this morning that our worse fears were realized...our SIL's father does have cancer, and its aggressive. Unfortunately the family isn't one of those lovey-dovey ones like ours - we talk about EVERYTHING...they talk about nothing....so we'll wait and just be ready to be there when the call comes. He'll be in our thoughts and prayers more than ever.

Today is simply fabulous weather wise...but those mean weather people are still calling for that white stuff to come out of the sky over the next few days. Good thing I had a chance to go out and enjoy myself. Guess what...my freckles are starting to re-appear! Now that's a sign of spring!

I'm going to try and get back into my stitching/crafting in May. the rest of this month is pretty hectic, Dad's taxes are proving to be difficult...mostly with his disability credit etc...and then we have that silly wedding cake to make for May 5!

My May wish list may include Frederick, and a LeMoyne Star quilt for Jonathan. Will keep you posted as to my progress or regression....hopefully the former. Thanks for stopping by!

I know what you mean about 'feeling the love' from a Freecycler. I freecycled a bunch of girls clothes last year and received the most heartfelt thank you via email.

We have freecycled some things, and it really is a nice feeling to help out those who really need it :)

Sounds like a good dinner and I'm glad you have good weather. You and your family are in my thoughts. I know how being in the family that doesn't talk about things is and it's hard. {{HUGS}}
