|Today I'm joining Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom|
and all the sweet ladies of Happy Homemaking Monday!
I trust that you and yours had a great rest of the week last week, and a wonderful weekend, and are now ready to face whatever challenges lie ahead with gusto in another brand new week!
Our past week has been busy and filled with good things. Our grandson, Jed, celebrated his 5th birthday on Monday.
On Tuesday my sweet friend, Natalia, came over and taught our oldest daughter and I and the grands how to make her native Brazilian brigadeiros (they are sooooo good and my husband absolutely loves them!!!)

on our anniversary and Valentine's Day. 💗
I worked Friday and Saturday. Then, Saturday evening, we were blessed to have long-time, and very dear, more-like-family-than-friends surprise us with a visit. We had supper together and visited for a few hours before they had to head back, but what a wonderful time of blessing and sweet fellowship!
Yesterday morning we had a good service at church, then, in the afternoon, our youngest son and his family came and we got to hold and love on that new grandbaby. And, let me tell you, she is absolutely adorable! 💗👶💗

Well...that's it for last week. Let's get right on in to this week's post, shall we? 😊
Right now I am...
I am finishing up breakfast and having a cup of hot tea while I work on this post.
On the breakfast plate...
egg and sliced turkey on toast and hot tea
Right now it's overcast and 65 degrees. Thunderstorms are just to our west and should be upon us within the hour. They are expected to last throughout the afternoon, into the evening, and overnight. The rest of the week doesn't look too bad (temperature-wise anyway...40's, 50's, and 60's for the highs), but there is the possibility of rain almost every day of the foreseeable forecast with little to no sun. BUT...spring is officially only a month away and, at this point, I'll happily take the rain over snow and ice any day...and I LOVE winter! 🌷🍀🌷

From the camera...
While out and about on Tuesday, Natalia and I had ice cream at
All Aboard Ice Cream at Redings Mill. What a wonderful place!
The ice cream is made fresh right there in the back of the store and
is made from all-natural (or as close to all-natural) ingredients
as possible and it's soooo good!
|The best part is, once you get your ice cream, you get to enjoy it|
in this old, original Kansas City Southern railroad postal car.
|The inside of the car features a dining area...|
|and a play area for the youngsters, as well as old photographs|
and a bit of railroad history.
It's interesting to see the names of all the towns that the mail car delivered mail to.
Well, Ladies, that's it for this week! I pray that each and every one of you have a blessed week ahead and that all goes well for you and yours in every area of life!
Until Next Time...
