Myrtle Beach 2013

Hello again :O)

and fun time I had last week in Myrtle Beach S.C.

What do you think of them?

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Happy Earth Day 2013!

Greetings and Happy Earth Day!
It was a beautiful day out today even though the temperature and
wind made it a bit chilly.
Happy Earth Day

I have just returned from my SpringBreak.
We went to Myrtle Beach for 10 days. It was wonderful.
Every day we rose early and with coffee in hand made our way down to the
 beach to watch the sun rise. The sky would lighten up bit by bit and the surrounding clouds would go from gold to pink and slowly the ball of sun would rise in the sky. I would walk along looking for seashells while my husband took many spectacular photos. I use to be the photographer in the family but now John has taken up the hobby and I just enjoy making sketches of the events.
Myrtle Beach is such a relaxing and beautiful place.  We stayed at the Marriott Villas where should you tire of the beach you can always find a selection of activities to attend.
Every morning (after our sunrise walks) we attended a yoga class. I felt so healthy and stretched out afterwards. In fact I enjoyed it so much I'm going to look into taking a class regularly here at home.
Twice my sister and I went to a Zumba class. What a workout!!! Should have sweat off several pounds you would think....but let me tell you about the restaurants we visited !!!! My favorite has always been the Sea Captains House. (It still is one of my favorites ) this time we also ate at the Gulf Stream Cafe, The Conch Cafe and the Parsons Table. Each meal  was better than the next!
I do love my seafood as much as I LOVE the sea!

Easter Weekend

Hello all :O)
I hope each one of you had a lovely weekend!  I certainly did!
Easter is one of my most favorite of holidays ! 


This year I was unable to make it back home 
to Kentucky to be with my parents, brother and his family.
We made the best of it and were delighted to have good friends come and celebrate the day with us!

I made lamb with a gin & red currant jelly sauce. Ohh man it was yummy! Also, I made sweet potatoes, salad, corn pudding and fresh green beans with a homemade Green Goddess dressing .
To top it off for dessert we had a 
wonderfully delicious 
Easter Egg Cake
 from the Sturbridge Public House.

Now, of course I did miss being with my two daughters and their families but...Maybe next year!  (I adore seeing my 3 little grandsons all dressed up in their Sunday best!)

All for now come back again!
