What's up

It has been yet another busy weekend, friends! Yesterday, my God-daughter, Kylianna, had her High School Graduation Party - SOO very proud of this exceptional young lady!  ...


It was also WWII Weekend at The Mid-Atlantic Air Museum. This year, my husband's first cousin, Mike, drove in from New Jersey to join him! 

We treated him to a nice dinner at The Sinking Spring VFW last night before his road trip home ....

Weekend Happenings

Greetings, friends. After almost three months of ungodly heat and humid weather, we finally had to replace our central air unit. We had been nursing it along for a couple of summers because we did not have the funds to buy a brand new one. Our old one had a leak in it and we tried having it patched but it did not work and since you can no longer get Freon anymore that was that. This past Thursday, B.L. Ott came out and installed our new central air unit. It cost us $8,000 but has a 10-year warrantee. We were able to front $5,000 of it, but we had to finance the rest.

🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒🆒

The cats were also really feeling the horrible heat we have been having here ...

In other news, we recently traded in our DISH Network for a V See Box. We had DISH Network for many years, but when they tried to force us to upgrade costing us $150.00 more per month, my husband said NOPE! In case you do not know what a V See Box is, it is a small box that streams off of your internet service. It has EVERYTHING from a huge array of movies, television series, Live TV, YouTube, Netflix, Disney Channel, Prime Video, and MORE! It comes with a remote control which is easy to use. The only thing is, once in a while you must reboot - no big deal. 


And last, but certainly not least, I had a wonderful visit from my first cousin, Tina, and her husband today. We spent the afternoon catching up after MANY years of not keeping in touch. Tina is my mother's only sibling's daughter who is dealing with exactly what I had to with my own mother (Tina's aunt was my mother). Tina is a PRN and just retired from her job. She is, like I was, THE ONLY one taking care of her mother and trust me, IT IS A HUGE UNDERTAKING! She and her husband had moved and now live closer to me which I am very happy about!! ...

Memorial Day weekend 2024

It was a very busy holiday weekend. Saturday, I was finally able to get together with my sister Robin. We had lunch and went shopping at our usual local places. Sunday was a family cookout at my husband's cousin and her family's house. The weather was beautiful and the perfect day to enjoy delicious hamburgers, hot dogs, and more.

Yesterday, we started off our day early as my husband was asked to serve in the Honor Guard for the Sinking Spring VFW Post 6150 Annual Memorial Day Remembrance this year. They hold two ceremonies - the first one was at The Pleasant View Cemetery in Sinking Spring, PA ... 


And, the second, was held at The Sinking Spring VFW Post 6150 ...

There was a special luncheon for all who participated and our members who came out to join the remembrance. I baked cupcakes for everyone - Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting and vanilla with blue frosting ...

This and That

This week, my cremation heart-shaped locket finally arrived for my mom's ashes. It has her fingerprint etched into it ... 


Yesterday, my husband and I attended a special 60th Birthday celebration for my wonderful friend and co-worker, Miss Sonia. It was held about a quarter of a mile away from our house at a venue called, "The Fish Pond" near Blue Marsh Lake. There was delicious food, complimentary drinks, DJ's, and a great time was had by all. 

It was also Miss Sonia's granddaughter Ariana's 18th Birthday ...

Sonia's daughter, Shadae, who baked and created both of the birthday cakes (and owns her own cake business) flew in from Jamaica the night before to make the two birthday cakes. Aren't they simply BEAUTIFUL? ...

Miss Sonia looked GORGEOUS!!

There were many other of my fellow co-workers there as well ...
The lovely Ms. Myah!

Aydan, whom I have nicknamed "Sunshine" at work because his smile always makes me smile. 😀 
My co-worker Sue and her mother, Sarah.

HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAY'S TO YOU, MISS SONIA!!

While at the party, we saw MANY stray kitties on the premises. It turns out that a nice couple set up shelters on the grounds behind the building and feed 30 HOMELESS CATS ...

and, apparently, a raccoon named "Rocky" ...

And, finally, some chill pics of our own kitties ...
