Share 4 Somethings.. April 2023

It's nearly the end of the month and that means it's almost time for  Share 4 Somethings with Jennifer . As always we're looking at what we loved, read, learned, and ate this month.   Loved : I loved that we had two day of fun during Alec's April vacation.  Evan, Alec, and I went out to lunch and to the zoo one day (where Evan and Alec took ALL the photos with my camera while Evan taught Alec a bit about how to use it).  Then Evan, Alec, and I went hiking and got ice cream another day.  We also celebrated Ian's 19th birthday with pizza, a chocolate/peanut butter cake, and ice cream.  Alec made his cake using this recipe -- wow, it was amazing! Read: I read another dozen fabulous book this month-- I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite but The Dutch House, American Dirt, and The Mother In Law were top of my list for sure.  Learned:  Each track season I learn a little bit more and this year I've learned a bit more about the javelin and discus scoring systems

April's Monthly Musings: 2023

 It's the last Thursday of the month and time for Monthly Musing with Holly and Patty. This month we're talking all about spring! Does it feel like spring has really arrived where you live?  1. My favorite spring fashion piece seems to change a bit from year to year; while flip flops are always my absolute favorite it's been a bit chilly for them most days this spring.  This year my most worm and used fashion piece is my jean jacket.  2. I don't change up my scents from year to year... but I LOVE smelling lilacs and other fresh flower blooms as they slowly start making an appearance.  3. Once spring weather hits we grill a lot of meat and seafood and I love to have cold salads to serve with them. It makes dinnertime so easy!  Here are a few of our favorite cold salads: WW 4 point pasta salad New England style broccoli salad Classic macaroni and tuna salad BBQ macaroni salad BBQ bacon potato salad 4. Spring desserts make me think of fruit!  I have a few to share... like
