Another Trip To The Flower Store...And The Toy Store...And......

Our first stop was "The FLower Store" better known as Mississauga Greenhouses!

I have taken you here before...LOVE this place!

So does Miss V!  Good thing she had her sunglasses in her "packpack"...

And her new toy from Auntie Lissa and Uncle Jeff!!

We picked a few plants for my front planter...

I will buy a few more later...I like them "stuffed"...hahaha!


Next stop was the grocery store for some pizzas for dinner...

They did not have any plain cheese..{Miss V's fav}...

So...while they made us up a fresh one...

We strolled next door to Mastermind...a fabulous toy store... 

It was quite a thrill for many little time! hahaha!

After picking up the pizzas...and having lunch...

We got busy on planting up Nana's front planter... with the flowers we had picked out...Miss V likes pink...and blue...unfortunately no blue flowers that day...perhaps next blue Lobelia...

Gardening gloves.....✔️

rubber boots.....✔️


great enthusiasm....✔️


She enjoyed just digging up a wee bit of dirt with her "digger"...

And transferring it to another pot...


We put a couple of Cosmos into this old pot...she was thrilled...and..she found...

3 Snails!

She carefully placed them in the pot with the Cosmos...

{nobody inside tho'} tee hee hee

Got it all planted up!

Looks beautiful...will add more later!! was time for a quick bike ride...gloves and all...♥️

She helped me put everything away...

And we came inside...washed our hands...and got busy baking... 

Ooooops...already showed you these...just wanted to tempt you again!

After the cookies were in the oven...

I sliced up an apple...and Miss V relaxed watching Bubble Guppies...

While I cleaned up the mess in the kitchen!!

After her show...she got busy making her Mom a Mother's Day Card...

I cut a Crown shape out of felt...and we went from there...

She loves doing this so proud of her, that she enjoys the simple things in life...what a future she has ahead of glad to be part of it ♥️

She wrote her name...added some jewels and stickers...and we put it in an envelope...did not get the finished was sweet!


When her Mom arrived...we chatted and then we had pizza...

What a great day it was...can't wait til I see her again...


Update on boyfriends progress...

His flights were rerouted a bit...

He will not be in Edmonton at all...

He will fly from Grande Toronto!!

He won't arrive until around 8pm...he will be pooped!!

I made some beef stew...hopefully it will hit the spot nicely...

He wants to go to the cottage Saturday morning and stay til Monday!

I said..."NO WAY!"....NOT!! Can't wait! A couple of days out there will be just what the Dr ordered!! 


Hope this post wasn't too long...and that you enjoyed it!

Have a great day...sunny and warm to get a haircut! YUCK!!!

  10. Such a sweet post . . .
    I adore Miss V . . .
    Precious she is and loves doing so many things with you.
    Shopping, flowers, cookies and more . . .
    Mother's Day card is wonderful . . .
    Love, love, love your large plant container . . .
    The trailing ivy's are so pretty in that container . . .
    Happy your hubs is arriving home safe and sound and you'll have a cottage weekend together.

  11. Oh...those sunglasses and boots! She is one 'stylin' girl. The fun you have at the nursery and then potting plants. Emily was like that...still is. My faves are lobelia and cosmos...we are so alike. Love the wicker container! Love your energy, too, your days are jam packed when you have your little love, You make me tired reading!

    I hope you get to your cottage this weekend. We were in the low 80's today but will be down to the 60's this weekend. We do an annual breast cancer walk on Mother's Day, a huge group in honor of my husband's first wife who died from breast cancer when she was just thirty. We've raised quite a bit over the years, and then after we have a wonderful, boozy brunch at her sister's house! lol!

    Happy Mother's Day to you, my friend!


  12. Oh yes, enjoyed this post very much Linda. Miss V is a ball of style in her sunglasses, and her gardening efforts are looking good. The finished pot looked beautiful. So pleased your man will find his way safely home, and yes, he will indeed be pooped. Here's to a lovely relaxed weekend and Happy Mothers Day to you.

  13. I love that you do the simple things in life with Miss V., gardening, baking, crafts... you are such a big help to her mom! I take it your husband was out west on business? I can't believe the footage we are seeing about Fort McMurray. I hope this is a relaxing weekend at the cottage for the two of you. -Jenn

  14. Too cute for words! I just love that she wore her sunglasses in the flower shop. Your flowers are pretty, too. Enjoy your weekend at the cottage!

  15. What a fun day and memories to treasure! They grow up so fast.
    Yes it was a beautiful warm day today, you could actually see the trees buds opening. My Flowering almond bush is usually open with beautiful blooms by Mother's Day. Not sure if this is going to happen with the cold weather that we have been having.
    Happy Mother's Day Linda! Enjoy your weekend at the cottage!

  16. A bit late to the party . . .

    What a thoroughly delightful day spent with Miss V. It is so lovely that she is sharing your love of gardening and also I noticed from previous posts, various projects in the kitchen.

    The visits to the Flower and Toy stores looked fun
    Peter often comments when seeing toy advertisements on TV that his bedroom is much bigger now and we can go to Toys-R-Us and get some more . . . lol. That little lad does not miss a trick . .

    Glad b/f is out of danger and can get home safely . . . :)

  17. Such a great helper and so wonderful that you can guide her along. Boy, she is getting tall! I love planters "stuffed" too. Nice to see the cascade of greenery as well. Yay Miss V and Nana!
