What makes a Happy Home? I love to take care of my family. For me, creating a home that is warm and inviting, where everyone feels welcome is pure joy! The smell of fresh laundry just in off the clothesline, a neat and tidy home and garden, a good home cooked meal, a few desserts here and there, the love of family, friends and fellowship all help to make our home a Happy Home. Join me as we celebrate the holidays, the birthdays and the every days!

A Spring Rudolph Day
For those of you following along - sorry that I've been a bit incognito this past week. I was actually have a good week (fibro - wise) and was doing a lot of things around here that needed doing along with walking every day.
It didn't leave me much time for blogging myself, but I was sneaking around making some visits here and there. Today is the 25th of the month and that means Rudolph Day here at The Old Parsonage. Sorry that I forgot to give a gentle reminder earlier in the week for those of you wanting one.
We've had such a great weekend. Yesterday after the market I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookies. We gave half to Little Bride to Be's family - they needed a little pick me up. MaryJoe's been in the hospital under going some tests this week and Dennis has been ill as well. Please keep them in your prayers.
While the cookies were cooling, Mr OP and I took a quick trip to Zionsville for a little junquing. I got this sweet little pincushion for $4. I've been on the lookout for one like this, but they've been about $20 and I would never pay that much. This was right in my price range.
I also bought the little ironstone platter. It was 30% off and just hopped into my hands:) Today turned out to be a beautiful day (it was supposed to rain all day), so I did a little yard work - cleaning out flower beds and planting my rosemary bush outside in a pot for the season. Even though I washed my hands a few times, I can still smell it - mmm. I've saved my Rudolph Day to do list for tonight - after Mr OP goes to bed. I'm going to watch Little Women (with Winona Ryder) and look at my cookie recipes. Making the chocolate chips yesterday had me thinking about a few new ones.
I'm also thinking about Easter too. It's just 13 days away and I've got to get my list ready of candy to make and what we'll have for dinner. We won't stray too far from tradition, but I always like to add at least one new thing to the menu.
So, is anyone out there making there Easter plans?
