We were able to spend some extra time with our youngest son because he was called to sub in our local orchestra a couple of times. A business trip to DC gave us another opportunity to connect. Those times spent together with him were a blessing to us and came at a time when winter seemed like it would never end and I was missing family.
We did lots of baking in March. We've managed to keep the "start" alive that we got from my son's roommate last fall and have been making sourdough bread about once a week. My husband has been the pro at this. I've lost count on how many pies and scones I have baked, all with apple of course. My goal was to have all the apples gone by now but I still have enough apples in my fridge for a couple more pies. Maybe we got carried away on our apple picking excursion last fall.
March came in like a lion and I thought it was going to go out like a lion (it was freezing Saturday) but we had temperatures in the 70's yesterday so I guess March officially went out like a lamb.
My MIL sister passed away last month. Even though she wasn't young, it was very unexpected and will leave a huge void in my MIL's life. She was faithful in calling my MIL every night to check to see how she was doing. Another reminder that life can and often will change in a moments notice.
Our little dog passed away, he was 18, and my son just so happened to be home when he passed, I saw that as God's grace, Angus was really his dog. We have decided to be pet free for awhile.
The weather here is getting warmer, flowers are blooming and trees are budding, signs of spring all over the place. The time is getting closer for us to be able to hug those grands of ours, they are planning on visiting after school is out. I'm praying it all goes as planned
The Lord keeps reminding me that things, life can change in a moment, we must put our trust in Him who never changes
