Yesterday, we were cleaning our backyard and getting it ready for the summer. My husband cleans his grill and prepared our first BBQ Ribs. Some of our neighbors were also grilled. The smell of the ribs on the grill makes anyone wanted to stay outside all night. The grilling season has started with my son’s favorite menu BBQ ribs. I preferred the chicken; however, those first BBQ ribs were delicious. The warm weather equals gardening, grill, and BBQ ribs.

Here is my April coloring page. It took me awhile, but I did it.
I’m taking the time, to read a few passages from the Bible and welcoming “The Holy Week”. I do take this week seriously and I like to reflect on the sacrifice Jesus did for all of us.
Have a blessed week!
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “lip.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “lip”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!
The word “lipstick” brought a lovely childhood memory. As a child, I love when my aunt came to visit us. She’s my favorite aunt and my mother’s older sister. The love she has for the family it’s out of this world. I admire her tenacity, her works ethic, a woman of faith, her kindness, her love for her siblings, especially my mother, and the way she took care of her appearance.
My mother didn’t wear any makeup except for lipstick; however, my aunt is another story. She has a daily routine: lotion, powder talc, perfume, and never would leave the house without makeup and her red lipstick. I will stand next to her just to see her technique when she was applying her lipstick. She would apply her lipstick without getting the color out of her lips line. And for the final touch, she took a napkin or toilet paper press her lips on it. The paper would have her lips printed and with a smile she would blow a kiss.
When I started using lipstick, I did the same thing. Obviously, time has changed and the technique of the napkin is gone. However, learning from my aunt, I don’t leave the house without a little of makeup especially my lipstick. My lovely aunt who is 86 has been diagnosed with dementia. Her memory is failing and my cousin who is her caregiver keeps her looking great and always wearing her lipstick.
