My big stitching project for this year is Smoky Mountain Christmas. I have been trying to work on it on the weekends. It is such a big piece and has so many colors that it is not a piece I can take along to Grimmwood etc. I have to work on it in my stitchy place at the end of the sofa.
Marvin and I are off to the funeral of a friend's mother. It is in Fayetteville, Tennessee about an hour from our home in Decatur. She was 93 years old and lived a life that blessed her family, friends and community.
And tomorrow will be Palm Sunday as well as my Daddy's birthday. I never forget special days that honor him even though he is in heaven.
If you are a historian you will know that April 9th is the day Robert E Lee surrendered at Appomattox Court House bringing an end to the Civil War. It being my Daddy's birthday I could always remember this date on tests when I was in school!
It is a sunny day here in NoAla...some local Facebook friends posted pictures of hot air balloons flying this morning here in the River City. We have a big balloon festival on Memorial Day weekend and the local balloonists start sharpening up their skills in the spring. Those beautiful balloons always bring a smile.
