What’d You Do This Weekend? #13

Welcome to the new week. If you are a regular here thanks for coming back and if this is your first time, welcome! I hope you enjoy the party.

We went from a week of sadness and tragedy to one that was wonderful and hopeful for me.  This week the ladies at our church lead by my daughter, Amy, put together a spring festival called Hearts of Compassion.  It was a beautiful day and a beautiful event.  Everyone had a ball and some really good work came from it.  I added my Peanut Butter Cake to everyone’s baked goods for the sale.

I am open to everything except promos, political material and Etsy Shops. Recipes, crafts, house and yard projects, sewing, restaurant review or even your weekend road trip ramblings are all welcome links. You’ll note by the title of the site that I like ramblings! Whatever. I like to read and learn new things. I will be having weekly features that I will promote on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest our Monthly Newsletter and anyplace else I can think to share.
