Happy last day of April, friends! Hope you are finding good things to do and enjoy right where you are.
I like that it is really and truly Spring here in Colorado now. We've been able to sit out on our backporch and enjoy the backyard views!
Mike was trying to capture the sun coming through my new spinner the other day with a close-up.
I love this group of special people. These are many of the guys Mike served in the Navy with in the late 60s/early 70s. We get together with them, and the wives who can come, every two years. This photo was taken at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC, in May of 2018. Today we should have been meeting them all in Boston for our 2020 reunion, but the coronavirus changed all that, as it has changed so many things for everyone right now.
Today, we're missing this group so much, but we are hoping to reschedule this trip for a year from now!
This week I had the chance to bake some Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, and it was yummy! I promise we didn't eat it all - I gave the big loaf to a neighbor. But Mike and I have enjoyed a slice or two each day with morning coffee.
I had fun finishing up my Heart of the Home mini, pattern from Twiggy and Opal. I had to share the back of it, too - I fussy cut just the right piece for it!
I love this, and I'm ready to make another one for a friend!
The penguins at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago have been entertaining us recently. Their keepers are letting them explore the aquarium since there aren't any visitors coming in right now. You can visit their website, HERE, or like the Aquarium on Facebook, and every now and then a little video of a penguin or two wandering the aquarium will be available to watch.
And just to leave you with a little laugh - I enjoyed this one this week!
