Running behind seems to be the theme of my life this time of year -- seems appropriate to post a day late.

Remember my #2 daughter asking me to ask all you prayer warriors to pray for her dear little friend Keller? He is doing wonderfully and there was an article in our little newspaper about him so I thought I'd share that with you - a GREAT praise report!! Keller UPDATE .

And while on the subject of little boys, I have to show you this photo of my grandbaby -- boy was he a happy little guy when he was at Gigi's house for Easter. He smiled like that every time those ears went on his head, lol. #1 Daughter called last night to say he has his first ear infection. Boo!!!
Easter dinner was a HUGE success with my family. I had never tried bacon-wrapping a pork loin and was thrilled with the results. I used a thick-cut apple-smoked bacon and it gave the pork a slight smokey flavor that was outta this world.
First time try for me was Twice-Baked Cauliflower -- YUM!! I'll share that recipe on Friday for Low-Carb Living.

Everyone's favorite spring salad got a low-carb makeover and was also a HIT!!

The table was simple yet very beautiful - the LILACS were over-the-top GORGEOUS! They bloomed perfectly for Easter and are now on their way out - making room for what comes next in the spring line-up.
This was probably the last holiday family dinner around this table - I've decided to sell it in some down-sizing that I plan for after tax season. It has served me well but in my garage is stored the most wonderful old, restored farm table and I am wanting to use it full-time. Size-wise the farm table is a much better fit. Sometimes letting go of things just makes sense.
Last up, I thought I'd show you my car after yesterday's vehicle vs. deer altercation.
The estimate came back yesterday afternoon to the tune of just over $2,200.00. Thankful that it is just money - and it will be done before my vacation to Arizona at the first of May -- and speaking of that, I am training HARD for my 10K race - not sure I'll be able to run the entire race but I am determined to do my very best.

Looking forward to having next Wednesday off. We always close the office the day after the tax deadline. I plan to spend the day doing some spring cleaning AND catching up with my favorite blogs. I've missed you all! Blessings!!
