What does one do when a PC crashes? For me, I kept busy...and am awaiting the birth of my third Grandchild!

This post is to give all my blogging buds a quick update since I just got my PC back from the Computer Docs after getting a new hard drive.
I kept busy...held a Vintage Tea for a local Writer in my home - Sneak Peek of the hat & earrings below~ I wore my grandmothers vintage white pearl earrings, her jersey silk blue/white dress that I remember her wearing when I was a little girl...and then I sported a great new blue hat that a new friend, Julie, gave me earlier this Spring. I even wore my Grandmothers floral shoes - yes, we have the same size foot! The Tea was so much fun, and we made some great memories for the featured guest!
Then this past weekend I was in Cornelius, NC and visited a great little authentic FRENCH owned Chocolate/Wine/Coffee Shoppe. The owner is an artist and his art covers the walls. His wife is the Chocolatier...and she does FABULOUS designed and tasty chocs! The wines are all French!
Today I decided to start my day off, I'm really trying to eat well this summer and make it a lifestyle and not a whim any longer. The Blackberries were scrumptious and the parsley is from my own herb gardens in pots on my front porch. I grabbed my favorite magazine, Romantic Homes, and showcased the platter on my favorite Italian Tray which was a vintage find a few years back. A picture perfect morning with great flavor! :)
And, now I await the call that I'm a MiMi again.....and I will soon share my new grandson, lil Jonathan David, II with you all!

Ciao for now...hope to visit you all very soon!
