Twelve days ago it was birthday soup for my birthday. Today it is anniversary casserole for our 48th anniversary! I asked Woody wanted for our anniversary dinner and he asked or Company Tuna Bake, an old tried and true recipe. I laughed, though, when I was looking on the page that this recipe was on, I spotted right under it what I served for our first anniversary dinner: Cornish Game Hens and Rice Stuffing. A bit fancier meal than 47 years later! Woody headed off on his four-mile walk before he went grocery shopping today. While I was having school he headed off to the store. I had a usual Wednesday school day. Abigail finished up another zippered bag and we attempted to start on putting together the photos that I took step-by-step during the process of making a zippered bag. Now we plan to put them into a document so it will be able to follow...what stitch to use, what machine foot to use, etc. I pretty much did nothing for a while after lunch...taking advantage of another day off from the church library due to Spring Break. After I rested for a while I made our supper. We have eaten and now I am upstairs resting in my chair. We did hear from the tech who is working on the computer. He had a question for Woody...so at least we know that it is being worked on. Maybe I'll be back to posting pictures by tomorrow or the next day. Plus it will be very nice to be back on that computer for the blog. Typing on the iPad to do the blog isn't the easiest thing. Will be glad for a regular keyboard and larger screen...and ready to post pictures again...and look at the pictures that I took last week. I never got to look through all of them due to the computer being so slow. Looking forward to a faster, more cooperative computer. Woody thought about doing something today and realized that he couldn't do it because the computer was gone. I thought about a sewing project that I'm planning...can't do it without that computer...so definitely ready for it to come home!

At the moment a pretty severe storm is going through...rain, lightening, thunder. Woody is waiting for the storm to pass before he walks to the prayer room at church this evening (his walk for Tuesday). I had another day of school following our regular schedule. This week we are back to doing the children's long Grammy times. Joy had her time yesterday. She made great headway on her jeans skirt. She should be able to finish it next week. Isaac had his long time with me today. Joseph came over for a while and then Isaac had time by himself with me. After lunch Abigail and Joy came over to have their reading times. Isaac helped me clean put a kitchen cabinet. It was the one over the stove. I handed him things and he put them on the counter. I am really glad to get that cabinet organized again...it has certain Herb's and spices, olive oil, vinegars, pancake syrup and sundry other things. That's about the only cleaning I did today other than putting some dishes in the dishwasher. We had leftovers for supper...so no cooking other than warming up what struck our fancy. Woody worked out in the yard again this morning. It was quite warm...felt like a day that could produce some bad storms...there is just a feeling in the air both temperature and humidity-wise that just says potential storms. They had been predicted so these weren't a surprise. Welcome, first full day of Spring!

Happy first day of Spring! No photos till lap top gets back from its visit to the tech doctor. Woody dropped it off to see if there is any hope of it getting some speed back. And, hoping that it will be more cooperative when it gets back. After he dropped it off he headed to the Life Care Center to have Bible study with Jeff. I had school this morning...back to a normal school week. After lunch Woody, Elijah, and I headed off to Dairy Queen for free ice cream cones...DQ was giving them away for the first day of Spring. After we finished our cones, Elijah and I had his long time. Isaac helped me get supper tonight. Woody has just gotten home from Monday night prayer meeting. Sorry if there are any typos...very hard to correct in the format that I get for the blog when on my iPad. Blogs will probably be pretty short and sweet till laptop gets back. Tonight's picture would have been of a tulip--Nathan, Kathy and family gave me a tulip for my birthday and it bloomed today...pretty appropriate for the first day ofnSpring! A pretty yellow tulip--you will just have to imagine it!
