Easter Blessings Sweet Friends!

Happy Easter to You my precious Friend. Oh what a Blessing you are to me!

 I am so Thankful that Jesus loved us so much that He laid down His life for us so that we could go to Heaven to be with him one day. While celebrating His Resurrection today I thought of all of you and gave thanks to Him for having you in my life.
 Springtime is here at the North Forty. The pretty birds are singing and my flowers are blooming.
I know most of you are still snowed under so these flowers are for you until your snow melts.

I am still cleaning up from the hail storm a few weeks back but am so grateful the damage was minimum.
As you can see from this picture there are still leaves from the storm. I have mowed, raked and mowed some more but their still here.

My pink geraniums survived the winter.

As well as the pink petunia's.

It was fun having Easter Lunch in my newly painted dining room. I finally finished painting the window trim and just hung up some old lace curtains. Usually during the holidays I cover my table with a beautiful crochet table cloth my Aunt made for me years ago but the yellow walls called for color. I was hoping Christi would like this look.

Can't tell you how stressed I was cooking for the first time for her boyfriend Paul and his two darling kids. I loved meeting Audrey and Bryan today. They were a delight to be around and I hope this will be the first of many more holidays I share with them.

After endless hours of stressing over what to fix Christi and I decided on a Ham, Baked Beans, Scalloped Potatoes, Salad and a delicious sweet potato dish. Of course I had to have macaroni and cheese for the kiddos. My favorite part was the rolls and the yummy chocolate cake. ha ha

I hate I never slowed down while they were here to take pictures of them. What kind of blogger am I?

Yesterday they spent the day with his Mother on her 2000 acre ranch between Houston and Dallas. Can you imagine that many acres! I told Christi to propose to him. hahahaha

I kept Christi's dog Toby for her while they were there and I have to share a quick funny story with you.

Toby woke me about 6:30 this morning to potty. I thought surely I was safe taking him outside in my PJ's at that hour of the morning. Well you guessed it here comes the Cowboy out on a early morning ride.
I truly panicked! Is that a Word.

Of course the cowboy has caught me crawling through the upstairs window in my PJ's and dancing in the living room with them on but OMGosh I was totally not ready for this time with nothing but open spaces and nothing to hide behind but a few trees.

I saw him to late and he was upon me before I could made a wild dash for the front porch. There were two big oak trees that had a small opening and I managed to get behind them. He of course, knew what I was doing and even though I was praying that he would not stop he did.

Have you ever wanted to dig a hole and crawl in it. Toby was anxious because of the horse and I was horrified to be standing behind a tree in pj's and no bra. Not to mention the no make up and wild morning hair do. haha

Actually he thankfully realized how shockingly embarrassed I was so he wished me a Happy Easter and rode off.

I honestly don't think I remember a word I said to him. I was so busy trying to keep my arms up over my breast area which now that is a lot of area to hide. Then knowing I had no make up on I saw ever blade of grass on the ground. All the while Toby was doing his best to pull me out from behind the tree.

Thank goodness I don't own a dog and Tinkerbell uses a litter box. I may never go outside again for weeks. haha

I may also start sleeping in a bra.

Hope you had a Beautiful Easter and that your all doing well.

So good to visit with you and I hope to catch up with you on your site soon.
As always
Love to All

Glad you're still "perculating" as my aunt used to say. My neighbor-lady ONCE went to the mailbox in her baby dolls as I drove by, so naturally I stopped to chat! ;-)

Debbie said...

Happy Easter to you too!!!I just love your flowers! Way to cold here for flowers yet. We had 8 inches snow last weekend, but it's melted off now.
I just love your cowboy stories!! I too think he is sweet on you and will miss you when you move!!

God Bless~

LOL, Maggie! I could just see you scrambling to find some place to hide when you saw the cowboy headed your way. : ) It sounds like you had a nice dinner with your daughter and her boyfriend {and the kids}.

Arkansas Patti said...

Pretty sure that cowboy would never recognize you with your clothes on.
You are such a hoot.
So glad you had such a nice Easter.

My name WAS Female, I shit you not! said...

THX for the giggles Maggie ;0).
My goodness dear lady, you sure have a green thumb as well as an eye for decorating.:0)
Find yourself a cowboy and ride off into the sunset m/f. You have a lot to offer some lucky guy.

Jill Cooper said...

Oh Maggie girl you always make me laugh! Hey Cowboy gets what he gets when he comes on your property - at least you don't sleep naked LOLOLOL

Julia said...

Happy Easter Maggie,
It's so nice having and update on your life. I see that the cowboy is still interested in your early escapade. lol.

It was nice that you got to use your cooking skills for your daughter and her boyfriend and kids. Sounds like a feast to me. Your dining room looks wonderful.

Spring has finally arrived here in New Brunswick and I'm back home and fed the calves this morning. My tulips are just poking through the ground and there is the odd little patch of snow in the shaded areas.

Take care

Hah! You and that cowboy sure have some fun "dates"....

Tammy said...

Hey Maggie! Glad to hear you had a nice Easter. I love geraniums but they just don't last here in the heat. Wishing you a happy new month. Have a great week. Tammy

Love the paint color. Beautiful kitchen.

I love your flowers and I wish they were in my yard. We are expecting snow this weekend.

A Tale of Two Cities said...

All those flowers mean spring is here in Texas--hope we enjoy some nice mild weather before the heat comes!! Love your funny cowboy story!

Pat said...

Glad you had such a lovely Easter...
I take Lucy out in my jammies every morning. The neighbors may have seen me but here in our neck of the woods we have no cowboys riding by.

yaya said...

One day when that cowboy sees you in regular clothes he'll say to you what our docs say to us when they see us not in scrubs.."Hey, I didn't recognize you with your clothes on"..I would suggest a simple's called "A Robe"..but then I'd have nothing to laugh about while reading your blog posts! Your flowers are so pretty and we do have a few flakes in the air today. No spring flowers up North for a while. Happy Easter!

GerryART said...

Am soooo envious of all your gorgeous flowing plants, gal.
Just as soon as it warms up a bit more
My goal for this summer is to get some flowery goodness 'round here.

I adore your table setting. It speaks HAPPINESS !!!!!

Maggie, Maggie you and The Cowboy. You're a hoot a minute.

Thanks for another great visit.

Such a funny story about the cowboy. Still, I wouldn't start sleeping in my bra any time soon, if I were you...
