This was a cute April Fool's Day e-mail from Betty Crocker. PB&J Soup, how appetizing! 🤮
An interesting WSJ article that I read
A cute candy skewer for Easter (it was my nephew Shane's)
I really loved these black booties and I wore them for many years. But their time had finally come when the bottom of the heel on one of them kept popping off and finally got lost. I took pictures and then wished them a fond farewell. I really do miss them, especially because I can't find the exact same ones anymore.
Please consider buying a set of notecards made by this sweet guy Max and his mother, who live on the Cape. He has autism. The website is at the top of the picture (and I'll just type it here: emilycolson.com).
A delicious lunch from Pan Thai. This is my new favorite dish there.
A cool old stove at my local florist shop.
This is one of the things that I love about New England. Less than ten minutes away from my house I'm driving along to drop something off for a friend and then bam, there's a sign announcing that this is the site of Paul Revere's home where his family hid during the Revolutionary War. I love how alive history is here, in the land and in the air; it's everywhere!
More history, this time from the pages of The Liahona magazine. This soon-to-be missionary's letter in 1918 to the president of the church about serving a mission cracked me up: "Dear Bro., I am ready to go but don't want to go very bad." 😂 I love his honesty. That's a picture of the earnest letter writer.
And more history. TAKE ME THERE! It would be a dream come true just to visit this place (much less live in it!).
A funny "doge" dog from Sam. It's a Roblox thing (or something).
This is so cute.
I really love these dark chocolate lavender bars from Cape Cod Lavender Farm. They're so good!
I still feel true joy despite what I'm going through in my personal life. When you're living right and consistently doing your best with the cards you've been dealt, you can be at peace and still be happy. I call it the joy of righteous living and the wisdom and comfort of the eternal perspective.
We had a family birthday party for Ben and Hayley, who both have April birthdays.
I have to admit that I enjoy snapping pictures that capture the awkwardness of being sung "Happy Birthday" to. 😂
Fresh and pretty roses at my facialist's.
From roses to guns (Guns 'n Roses!)--I really need to do this:
I thought this was sweet.
Good for him. Apple should get its butt kicked every now and then.
A Cousins Maine Lobster truck was in town one day, and I indulged and got a delicious lobster roll for lunch on my way home from a Relief Society presidency meeting. 😋
I joined this CSA, and I'm enjoying it! It really helps me to eat healthier.
