Happy Monday - Hope everyone had a great weekend! Right now it is a gloomy Monday morning and I am hoping for a good rainstorm here in Lancaster. We have been so dry and the grass and trees are longing for a drink. Come on, rain - let it pour!
The photo above is a placemat from Dollar Tree. I have been looking for a way to make our refrigerator easy to clan when spills and sticky stuff happens and I think I found an inexpensive and easy way to do it.
I bought 5 of these placemats and had to trim one of them -
Last stop on the shopping trip was Boscov's - do you have a Boscov's near you? They began in Reading, PA many years ago. I did not need these purses...but they are a great size and were marked $50. but sold for $19.99. I wore the green one out to a concert on Saturday night and got lots of compliments on the "pop of color!"

May into June!
Wow - it is June and summer is here. It's been a busy time here at Our New Vista.
We enjoyed a great Memorial Day Weekend visiting cemeteries to place flowers on graves of relatives and enjoying great food.
June 1st was our "annual cleaning"...part of our contract living here at Willow Valley in Lancaster is an annual cleaning of our apartment. It is a deep cleaning and we move almost everything but the furniture out of the way so the team of 6 people can do a deep clean of our home.
They even did our screen porch - so now we are all set for summer!

ROAD TRIP !!! We love to travel...and have a few overseas trips planned for the future. But, it has been a few years since we took a road...
