Catching Up and Spring/Easter Decor

It has been a while since I posted anything, almost a month.  I don't think I've ever gone that long.  Things are good at Shadymont.  I live alone now, but that's ok.  I've learned to do it again.  I lived alone for 5 years between my first husband's death and my 2nd marriage.  Just took him 13 years to get tired of me.  (lol)  But I find that I'm happy right here.  I cook once a week for my daughter and granddaughter, she cooks one time a week for me.  But I mostly eat ceral and salads.  Haven't lost a lot of weight, but my water bill is down quite a bit.  I don't run the dishwasher but about once a week.  I run the washer when I have full loads.

I was having lots of repair bills on my 17 year old SUV (235,000) miles on it.  I was just drivig through a local car sales place last Saturday, and found the perfect little vehicle for me @ 24 miles per gallon.  $ 30.00 for a fulll tank, and it has bells and whistles, I'll probably never understand.  It's a Hyundai Sante Fe, silver, leather interior, panoramic roof.  It's a 2015, but only had 29,000 miles on it.  I bought it for a great price, so now I don't mind getting out on the road and going somewhere in it.  I just didn't feel comfortable in the SUV anymore.

I haven't been doing much shopping recently, except I hit a great sale at Belk this week and purchased a pair of boots (to the knee) reg. $90.00 for $19.99.  They had gorgeous tops, BOGO, that was a good deal as well.

I got a new Iphone that is way too smart for me.  I bought it on Monday and had to have it to the Apple Store today because it had locked down.  I couldn't even use it and those things are NOT cheap.  It's still acting a little quirky, but I will call Apple Support and see if they can figure out what else it needs.  I really wish they would have just taken it back and given me a new one, but not so!

 I bought my sister a tea pot at GW this week,  and for me a picture frame, a couple like- new blouses and a new pair of jeans, all for $17.00. Some of the most comfortable jeans I've ever worn.

Last Saturday was my birthday and my daughter gave me a surprise party at a Sushi restaurant.  There were 21 of our family were there, and it really was a surprise, not a soul had slipped and told me.  We had a wonderful time.  One of my nieces gave me flowers and that gave me an opportunity to use the 5-fingered vases I've collected.

 I placed them through the house and am really enjoying them, especially the white one.

 I think I got this sign at Kirklends.  (it's on the shelf with my grands.)
