I really think that we have had enough rain and wind for one month. I know we need it, and we will be needing it soon as the weather warms up, but do we have to have it all at once?

Happy birthday to all who celebrated their day this past week. Big balloons go out to Madilyn Millard, who celebrated March 9; Kaliegh Fallon, Kennedy Garrison, March 11; Isabelly Santana, Kennedy Garrison, March 12; Elias Graves, March 13; and to Isabelly Cordeiro, Enzo DaSilva, Una DaSilva, Harper Gilkes and Miguel Silvaroli, who all celebrate on March 15.

Paula DelloRusso and her daughters Ruby and Violet traveled to Brazil to visit Paula’s sister and father. Ruby had not been to Brazil since she was three years old and this was Violet’s first visit. They had quite an adventure by going to Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf Rio and Governor’s Island. They also got in some beach time and some girl shopping. It was important that they were able to spend time with their grandfather and aunt.

The nursery is slowly opening. The spring flowers are about to arrive and put some color on the tables and pergola. The ranunculus are really full and green, and I am waiting for their rose-like flowers to bloom. With Easter a few weeks away, the Easter lillies will be arriving and their fragrant smell always takes me back to the church services we attended in our new dresses and hats.

I spent the good part of last week in Swansea with family, but one of the main reasons was to take Amelia, the new four-year-old, to see Frozen at the Providence Preforming Arts Center. There were five adults plus Amelia who attended. When we arrived at the theatre, we saw many little Elsa’s and Anna’s, including Amelia, attending. The adults wondered how the production would handle all the ice and snow and I can say that I don’t think anyone left unimpressed.

Have a great week and keep the home candles burning.
