Guess where we went this weekend... No, not the rain forest or some exotic local...Who is this, the wild man of Boreno? No, Just my sweet hubby who needs a beard trim! And the rope bridge? We went to Ikea! This is one of the large canvas photos that are for sale. I saw a photo opp, and the customers around us all had a good laugh.We purchase a area rug for the family room. Just a little spruce up for all who are gathering for Easter at the Farm in the Willows. (The actual meaning of our name, Willoughby!)
Our shopping also took us up north to Lake Geneva. The last time we visited the lake (January 20th) it was open water. This time on March 23rd there are ice shelters on the lake. Go figure...
We watched the movie Les Miserables and it was very dark and not what I expected. Hugh Jackman was amazing as Jean Valjean. I was familiar with the music, performed outside of the story. Seriously, what was I thinking, the French Revolution would be a happy setting? I love musicals but I would not watch this one again.
Just for posterity, I'll report that the little bird, now almost five, fell asleep in my arms on Sunday. We were just hugging and I started to rock her...we were listening to Andre Bocelli's new album Passione. (Romantic, soothing, did I mention Romantic? Check it out on PBS, Andre Bocelli in Portofino...)((I couldn't find it on the PBS app but maybe your local channel will air it.)) I was surprised and delighted to have this sweet moment. Not sure how many times this will happen again. I have been blessed with the sweetest great nieces. Now Grandma Penny is so looking forward to our sweet p. filling my arms later this week!
I'll check in as I prepare for Easter with progress reports. Take care my friends, thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy this beautiful day.
