Day 257-Free Days-It's Bunco Time!

This post contains affiliate links, please see my disclosure.

The weather could not have been better for the continued work on the yard we had to do today. Although we are no where near done, we got a lot accomplished in the last two days. Friday evening we began the hard work of taking out bushes and 4 inch thick ground cover from the front of the house. David had chopped and cut the bushes down to stumps, today while I worked on digging out roots from the beds, he chopped and dug out five of the seven bushes he cut down. Whew! He will be sore tomorrow, he had mowed and weed-eated the yard right before that! I wish I had taken before and after pics…maybe tomorrow.

Then later on, I went and got a much deserved mani-pedi and attempted to work on a product review for the website. Bunco time came too soon however and so it will have to wait until next weekend. My thought was to have a feature called Saturday Spotlight where I would review a product, service or book-starting with SiteGround since I erased my previous post. I think it only fair to try again with them first. I want it to be right, and since it is not polished, I will wait.

Bunco could not have been at a more fitting house, it turns out Starla collects bunnies (among other things) and she had such a cute collection of them, plus the food was delish and we all got drunk on sugar from all the wonderful treats she had. Yes, I have to admit to cheating quite a bit tonight.

I only ate half, but still….😉

These treats got labeled “crack”!

I thought I was finally going to win a prize, I had nine “baby” Buncos and even had a big girl Bunco, but alas, it was not to be. 😔

He who gets a Bunco gets the pink dice

Here are all the winners of prizes, and they were wonderful this time too!

Garden goodies!

It was a great night and I had a blast, even though I’ve yet to win a prize. My prize is getting to fellowship with these fun and crazy ladies once a month, eat food that is not necessarily “good” for me but really good, and play a silly dice game that brings us all together. Look out for May, I may be hosting at my house next! 😆

Day 251-Free Days-How Was Your Sunday?

Good evening everyone, I hope you all have had a fabulous Sunday!

Ours started with coffee and the decision to visit a new church. We both felt like we had visited this church a few times before, maybe when we were younger. Anyway, we felt instantly welcomed and comfortable and enjoyed the service very much. We did not get to hear a sermon however, today was the special Easter cantata. I’m looking forward to a special talk on Friday night from guest speaker Mark Winter of One Man Show Ministries. He will be presenting his monologue entitled “Encounter With Christ” which is perfect for Good Friday. I have never seen him but have heard he is a really good speaker, storyteller, evangelist.  Then of course, Sunday is Easter.

Of course, we couldn’t continue to rest on our laurels today and got busy removing a few bushes from the back yard. We got a little but done, but we have miles to go.

Small bushes removed, now to fill with flowers or container plants.

One section of fence with bushes removed, two more to go, and that’s only the back yard!! That fence needs a power wash, maybe a paint job! There are some excellent ideas on Pinterest I just may have to look into.

Supper was grilled chicken with sweet vidalia onion BBQ sauce, sweet potato and salad. I always opt for sweet potatoes because of their nutritional value, fiber and delicious taste-they are best baked on the grill and served with a pat of Kerrygold grass-fed butter. Yum! It is the only butter I use, especially first thing in the morning in my bulletproof coffee. I buy it a lot and it is pricey, but I’m worth it. 😉 (my health anyway)

What kind of butter do you use? I’ll give you my honest opinion and advice on which butter is better.

I hope your Sunday was blessed, see you tomorrow on the patio.
