Hello, friends!  Thought I would just give you a this and that (and that and this) post today.  I have some photos I want to share with you and this will give me that opportunity.

I can't remember if I showed you the Peeps bunny that my friend Debbie gave me.  So here it is.

This was the first Peeps I got this year.  And as you can guess it is gone.  I love my Peeps!

Spring is here even though the weather is kind of cold still.  Well, it's warming up some because I am now wearing a jacket or sweater and not a coat.  I know things are warming up because the trees are blooming.  Here is a sunset I took a picture of the other day and you can see the pretty trees.

I put out a few Easter things, but not a lot.  I'm so into cleaning out the house and getting rid of things that decor has gone by the wayside.  But I did get out my Easter egg bowl and we have filled it with jelly beans and chocolate eggs several times now.  I say several because those things don't last long around here.  We walk by, grab a few, and the next thing you know they are gone!  Well, I get them just once a year.  Not good for my waistline though.

Some of you may remember my favorite polka dot sunglasses that I wore everywhere last year.

I LOVED those glasses.  I bought them at Target for $13 and they were the best pair I have ever had.  But...  about six weeks ago I pulled them out of my purse and they had broken in half at the nose piece.  *sob*  No way to fix them.  Sadly I put them into the trash.  I have some cheap glasses that I keep in the car and I have been wearing them if I need them.  But they aren't polarized and glare resistant and all that other good stuff.  I got them in the Dollar Spot at Target for...  well, for a dollar.  Joe and I were at Rite Aid the other day and he told me to pick out a new pair of sunglasses and he would buy them for me.  This is the pair that I got.

I like the little design on the side of them.  They are a nice shape on my face also.  They aren't my sweet little polka dot ones, but they are nice.  I would have gotten another pair like the ones that broke, but I haven't seen them anywhere.  But if I do...  well, you know I will pick them up.

Finally, I was talking with my sister yesterday and she said she was having our grandmother's goulash for dinner.  Hmm, I thought.  I have ground beef defrosted and that might be easy for me to eat.  So I made it too.  So good.

It did go down easy and didn't make me sick.

I am going to have my esophogus procedure next Tuesday.  Hopefully in a few days I will be able to eat and not have the huge banging in my chest that makes me feel as if I am having a heart attack.  I have to have a liquid and soft food diet for a week and then slowly introduce solid food back in.  If it doesn't work, the doctor will do one more procedure before it is surgery to remove the scar tissue and more of my stomach with it.  I am praying it doesn't come to that and this procedure next week will do the trick.

Now I have to run and get ready for Bible Study.  I am planning to finish up Hebrews 11 this week.  Last week only one person showed up so we just prayed and talked.  I know at least two people are coming this week, so I most likely will be teaching.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Until later...



  1. A chatty post is so good. Praying with you that the least intense procedure will work just fine. Your new sunglasses look great; mine have that little side detail as well The goulash looks yummy.

  2. I know I should find new sunglasses too just in case I need them but I love the ones I wear. Your new ones look very cute and just like you! Enjoy your day!

  3. The new sunglasses look nice, Kathy. How sweet of Joe to buy you a replacement after the polka dot ones broke; hate when that happens to a favorite item. I hope the procedure goes well and they you will be able to avoid surgery. Peeps are a favorite of mine as well and now you have me wanting to buy some! We do keep some chocolate eggs around, but not jelly beans.

  4. Oh gosh Kathy... I sure hope the esophogus procedure is a success so you don't have to have any other procedure or surgery. If I ever see a pair of the polka dot sunglasses, I'll let you know. Your new sunglasses are pretty fancy and I bet you look like a million bucks in them:)

  5. Love your new sunglasses, Kathy! Praying that your procedure is a success!

  6. I hope and pray that your surgery fixes what's needed and Dr and nurses do well with you. Nice new sunglasses. I like the ones that have metal on them as they seem to last longer than plastic ones. I missed bible study today as Phil and I were at the coast for 3 days and 2 nights. We're doing Elijah bible study written by Priscilla Shirer. We watch a video every 3 weeks. Have a blessed week Kathy!! Hugs, Becky

  7. I shall miss the polka dot glasses as well...They looked so good on you! I like the new ones too. I'm a grab-a-piece person too! With me it's M & M's.
    Praying that the procedure works to alleviate the problem.

  8. What a sweet guy...that Joe!
    I will be praying for you, Doctors, nurses and a successful operation.

  9. Your Joe is one sweet guy! Having a good pair of sunglasses is a must! I have one that I got at Boscov's years ago and I can't believe they are still in one piece. But I do have a holder in the van were I keep them so I guess that helps.
    The picture with the tree and sun is so beautiful! We are now seeing tiny bits of green on our trees, YAY!!!!! So ready for color.
    Really hope the procedure you are having next week works. Will be praying!

  10. Hi Kathy. I like your new sunglasses. I hope your procedure went well. I have been out of town, so I am just now catching up on blogs. I hope you will update us all and let us know how everything went. The goulash looks good. I love that peep and may send some giant peeps to my grandkids. Thanks for the idea!

  11. Hi Kathy. I want to wish you and Joe a Happy Easter. Our Lord has risen. Hope you are feeling well.
