Mish Mash Monday

It's May 10 and I had to turn on the heater this morning to get the chill out of the house!  It really feels like fall after having 90 degree weather last week. 

I had a wonderful Mother's Day and I hope you did too if you're a mom!  We spent the day at Sotterly Plantation, a local National Historic Landmark located on the picturesque Patuxent River.  I'm trying hard to learn how to take better photos and I knew this would be the perfect place to work on my skills. These are some of the photos I took beginning with my beautiful daughter and handsome son!

I was so excited to learn I had won a giveaway from Pinks and Needles and even more excited when my adorable pincushion and needles arrived.  I wish I had taken a picture of the beautiful packaging but I was just too eager not to tear into it!

An update on my dad.  The doctors removed the cancerous tumor from his bladder and it was in the very early stages.  He does not have to have any radiation or chemo treatments, just a check up every 3 months.  We're so relieved and happy and thankful for such a positive outcome!  Thank you to all of you for your encouragement and prayers!

Be sure to check back here tomorrow.  I just might have a giveaway announcement....
