It's raining on my spring!! I thought having a wet, gloomy Easter weekend was enough!  The kids can't go outside, Ray can't work on his wall, and we all seem to spend the day reading, watching TV and eating!  Comfort foods, soup, stew and blueberry muffins!  Wash dishes, cook and wash more dishes!  I look forward to sunny, dry days.  Not too hot, but mild. I absolutely love late spring and early fall,  Warm days and cool evenings.  I always look for Daylight Savings Time--more sunlight!

I guess it had to happen, I can't deny it, I will have to admit it--I'm getting old!  I have several aches and pains that never go away, I have an old woman's skin, sometimes I creak when I rise.  Despite all this, I have refused to give in--not me--not yet!?!  I still take care of 2 great grandchildren 4 days a week, 10 hours a day.  That will keep you young!!  What has made me decide that I'm finally getting old is a quote that I read and instantly related to!!  I remembered every word!  If you're under 40, you may not know what a feat that is!
The quote is: What we do for ourselves, dies with us, what we do for others is immortal. Albert Pine
I don't know who Albert Pine is, but I know what he is.  Either a convicted Christian, a loving parent, or an adoring grandparent--or all three.  If you don't believe in God and Eternal Life, please believe you will live forever--in the memories you have made with your children and grandchildren.

The Sellars' Tenth Annual Eggstravaganza!!

  • One of my favorite holidays is Easter!  Beyond the spiritual meaning of the day, it is finally Spring!!  I don't  do cold! or gray and gloomy!  So, a great way to share my joy is to have all my friends and family come join us on this wonderful day and enjoy an egg hunt for the kids  and a BBQ for all in this humongeous back yard.  Sometimes when it's a little later in the year and therefore warmer, we have a water slide , other times we have had a jump house for the kids. This year, because of the rain and some families committment to others in the family, we had no waterslide and no jumphouse!!  We had a fun day inside!!  The kids were few, but we had a great time catching up on gossip and events of the year so far.

A Fun Fiftieth!!

A few weeks ago, February 27th, our children and grandchildren got together and organized a cocktail party to celebrate our fiftieth wedding anniversary.  It was fantastic!! Our granddaughter, Vickie di the food, her hubby, Mike acted as bartender, Donna and Shari took some terrific photos and all of them worked to make it a very special evening!  Old friends came to celebrate with us, and all my kids and grandkids here, together!!  Two were missing and missed; Logan who lives in Texas and couldn't get away from school and Mark who was and is somewhere near Afghanistan with his Marine unit  Mark will be home on leave very soon.  I missed both boys!  It seems to be very difficult to get them all together in one place where  there is also a camera!
