This Weekend....

  Earlier this week, my daughter Angie was on the front page of our local newspaper. There was a dress rehearsal of the play Steel Magnolias. Being on the front page is not a big thing. But it's fun.  The play will be running this weekend, starting tonight.
  Here 's Angie playing Truvy, in that Dolly Pardon wig, she let me try on a couple weeks back.  LOL.  She says she can get a southern accent down pat, thinking of her Grandmother.
 My baby brother had a birthday celebration this week.  This is his wife Suz.  They have no children, but have always had dogs.  Steve is a hard working man with a great sense of humor.
   Today is pretty out and a good bit warmer. But gusty winds. The wind will help dry up all the wetness from the melted snow...just in time for rain this weekend.  :):) Wishing  all of you the best weekend. Stay safe . XO

    1. Karen, I washed and fixed my hair and went outside to get the mail...came in and my hair was on backwards. LOL. But the sun is shiny and I am loving it . Blessings to you, wish you could come along to the play. xoxo, Susie

  2. Cute photo of your daughter! My small town is doing the same play beginning tonight and running for a few nights! Tell your daughter to "break a leg", not literally of course!
    It's sunny but very windy here today, too. I hope the sun will remain shining for a few days. I saw a robin the other day, but he may have just wintered over. But it was exciting to see him and think spring is on the way! :)
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Cheryl, I can not wait to see Angie do this play. I like the community theater plays. Angie's class gave her a "Break a leg" card today. :):) Oh I saw a robin in the crabapple tree two weeks ago...he must have stay all winter or got his schedule confused. I wanted to cry seeing him in the cold. I love robins as they are a sign of spring here....usually. Stay warm, spring is very near. Blessings , xoxo, Susie

  4. Well, that's cool that she is on the front page and even more that she is playing that very fun part. Is she a regular in the little theater?
    It's windy here most every day and it bugs me that it dries up the moisture. There are warnings about fires. Happy birthday wishes to your brother. They look like a sweet couple.

    1. Nonnie, Angie has been in some really cute plays given by the community theater. She loves it. I do not like when the wind dries the landscape to draught conditions. Too scary if forest areas. Thank you for the b-day wishes for my brother. He really is a kind man ..loves to laugh and bring cheer to others. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
      p.s. hope your weekend is a great one.

    1. Diane, I had forgotten you were from the south...Florida accents are not what a call southern ...well you know what I mean. My mom' accent was mostly gone, it was her southern vocabulary. LOL Blessings for a beautiful weekend, xoxo, Susie

  8. I wish I lived closer, Susie. I would come and watch the play. That is one of my favorite old movies of all time. I bet your daughter does a great job with that part.

    Hope you have a good weekend- it is mid 30s and bright but very windy here today. It is supposed to get colder again the first of the week. xo Diana

    1. Thanks Diana. I think if you lived closer we'd be in trouble. LOL. Some of the things you say and do make me think of myself. LOL...I told you once my brothers would cringe if we both were around them. Yesterday wore me out . I am hoping my Sunday is quiet. Blessings, keeping Lulu in my prayers. xoxo,love, Susie

  10. Hello Susie....looks like a fun play to be a part of, and go see. Lots of wind here, too. Every weekend we get a melt off of snow, then more cold and snow during the week...ugh.
    God Bless You, my friend.

Can't wait to see some blogs about your gardens and decorating. Without Emma coming over, I rarely make any crafts.I miss our Emma. Sending hugs and blessings to you sweet friend. Love you, xoxo, Susie

  11. That's wonderful that Angie was on the front of the local newspaper for the play she was in. That Dolly Parton wig looks great on her. It's nice that she remembers her grandmother's southern accent.

    It rained for a few days and now it's sunny today. I hope you enjoy the warmth of the sun while it lasts, Susie. I don't think we've seen the last of the rain for the season.

    love, ~Sheri

    1. Sheri, I am sure Angie was excited about the paper. She has put a lot of time into preparing for the play. They rehearse a lot.
      Don't you love your sunshine. I have had your state in my prayers. Seems one disaster after another. Stay safe honey. Blessings to you and your family. Love, xoxo, Susie

  12. Oh Susie ~ That play is going to be a big hit. How fun. Wish I could be in the audience too.

    Happy Birthday to your little brother. I miss mine. He was 10 years younger than me and cancer took him a couple years ago. Hugs.

    1. Debbi, There will only be three performances of this play...seems a shame after so many hours of practice. Dolly is a good person. I love watching those shows about her when she was little. I thought she did well in , "Nine To Five". Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. Thank you Jann. The three performances went off with a hitch. Had great attendance too. My brother has been sick with Pnuemonia lately. He just got a good report from his cancer surgery before the holidays. He's had a rough year. He appreciated all the good wishes form my blog family. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

    1. Lisa, Angie was in her senior play in school and a lot of skits through out her H.S. days. Every community has some kinds of programs where they need talented people, maybe your daughter will become interested in those. It would be fun for all of you. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  17. I think it would be special to be on the cover of any magazine...I love local theatre and we have some good ones around here. I love Steel Magnolia and I'm sure she'll be great in it. Happy Birthday to your brother!

    1. Thank you Cathy. Angie did a fabulous job in all three performances. Well all the ladies did. It all took place in Truvy's beauty salon. The play was a fun, but different than the movie. Very funny indeed. Thank you for the b-day wishes for my brother. He's had a rough year.Had a surgery and chemo for cancer. Now is getting over pneumonia. So he was so happy with all the wishes from my blog family. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
