A Very Little Bit of Easter......

Keeping it real, I barely decorated for Easter this year......
 First, I want to Thank Jody and Stan over at Rooted in Thyme for featuring my post,
 Buying,Tweaking and Crafting, from last weeks Simple and Sweet Fridays party!!
 Thanks so much and please head over and link up to this great weekly party!!

  I have very little out for Easter this year......

 I know.....ME not decorate!!

Just could not get it done this year.......

So, keeping things real and honest......

My Easter Tree....... Looking NOTHING like it looked last year!!
I was finally able to get it off the bed in the Guest Room where it lay since last September after the Remodel of our downstairs.

I had good intentions to set it up and decorate it in the Guest Room for Christmas but that never happened.
So now it is back down in the Living Room where it will remain for the Summer and it will become my Patriotic Tree and maybe a Beach Tree .......
I bought the sparkle eggs and crosses at Big Lots with the thought of adding them to all my Easter ornaments that I already have but with the Craft Fair that I Co- Chaired and was a Vendor at, I had no time to get out any of my Easter decorations.
So I threw on the new ornaments that I bought and some eggs ornaments from the Dollar Tree that I brought home from where I work.
I used to decorate my Department at work but the Department of Health deemed decorations a Fire Hazard so I brought home all the things that I had bought to use at work.
At the base of the tree is an Easter floral arrangement that I made.......

I don't even have a wreath hanging on my Living Room mirror!!!

With 5 Compression Fractures in my back, I did not feel it was wise to haul out the Easter decorations from the attic........
This little Bunny sign was something that I also brought home from work.......
And this is the Tree that I had in the Dining Room decorated for Valentines Day which I stuck on top of the TV Entertainment Center......
Again, a few Dollar Tree eggs thrown on it.....

And the same thing with this feather tree in the Dining Room.......
Thanks Goodness I brought home those Easter things from work or I would have nothing for Easter out!!!
 I forgot the wreath on the front door that I made......
 I made 8 Easter Wreaths for the Craft Fair and sold 7 of them with this one being the only one left so it ended up on my front door!
 At least it will look a bit like Easter when the kids come for Easter Dinner on Sunday.....

Easter is not a Holiday for me at work and it is my weekend to work so I am working Sat. and Sun. nights.

We will go to Mass after I get home from work in the morning and then after Mass, I will throw my turkey in the oven which Joe will baste and watch so I could sleep a few hours.  I will make my ham, sausage stuffing and kielbasi on Saturday so I won't have too much else to do when I get up Sunday afternoon.

After the kids leave, I will lay down for a few more hours and go back to work!!

Thank Goodness I will be off Monday night!!

Once again, I want to THANK everyone who commented on my post, Why I returned to Blogging and all those who also took the time to email me about this post.

YOU all are the reasons why I  decided to continue to Blog and your friendship means the world to me!!

You renewed my interest in Blogging and brought me back to what I love about Blogland...visiting and "talking" with my friends!!!

Thanks so very much for all your kind words and encouragement!!!

And also thanks to those of you who noticed my new photo.....
 I thought it was time for a new one!!

I just have to show you one more thing.....
 My youngest son Jim ( 30 y/o) showed me his new tatoo!!!!
Sweet Mother!!!

 Words can not describe!!!!!

And his girlfriend Danielle also got one.....
 She said it was very painful as there is not much skin on the top of your foot!!!!


Again, keeping things real!!!!   LOL!!

Wishing all of you a very Happy and Joyous Easter!!

HeartBleed Virus Password Hit List

The HeartBleed Virus attacks Passwords on certain sites, mostly Social Media.

My oldest son is an IT Specialist for Web.Com and has provided me with a link to a web site that gives you a really good idea of what passwords you should be concerned about and should change.

Click HERE for the link

I have already changed all my Passwords that could possibly be affected......
