New Slide Scanner

We got a slide scanner today. I was pleasantly surprised to see how good it worked! This is my brother, Dan. He was 11 yrs. older than me.

Me and Priscilla

This is me and Priscilla when we were about 3 and 4 years old. (If it looks a little blurry it's because I took a picture of a picture instead of scanning it.) A few times, a photographer came to our home and took our pictures. Martha must've been in school when this was taken.

Bike Ride

This evening after dinner the kids and I decided to take our 1st long bike ride of the season. It was such a beautiful day, with temperatures in the 80's. Aside from the fact that Michael's chain kept coming off we had a great time riding, and I feel well exercised for the day since after the ride I took a long walk with my hubby and our dog. Tomorrow will be much cooler with temps in the upper 50's or low 60's.
Does anyone know why a crabapple tree would begin to bud in the spring and then suddenly stop. We have 3 crabapple trees in our front island, 2 of them are covered with pink flowers and leaves now, but the one shown in the picture is sickly. ??

A weekend get away!

Tomorrow we will be leaving to visit my brother and sister in law in Amish Country for the weekend. They live in Ephrata, PA. It is a very pretty area. We don't see them too often, and I always look forward to visiting them.

Today the sun shone brightly so I felt like cleaning again! Maybe soon we'll finish painting our family room and do the stone fireplace too. Well, I cleaned and then took a walk in the woods with Dave and our dog, Jake. I forgot to bring my camera so I have no pictures. We let Jake off his leash though, which he absolutely loved. He also got VERY muddy feet. Beautiful day!! I love it when I'm somewhat productive! I even bought some strawberries for strawberry shortcake tonight, YUM!

Feeling like a slug

Lately I've been feeling a bit sluggish about doing a whole lot of housework. Tomorrow I need to get on it!!
