Spring Weather...Spring Rains...Birthdays and a Sleepover!!

Last week we scooted out to the cottage for one night...

The weather was summer like!!!

Lots of raking done...and my gardens are starting to come alive!! 


Back at home....the Spring rains came...


And our favorite house guest came for a sleepover!!!

We were so busy on Thursday...baking...planting seeds...filling the bird bath...

A great day and evening was had by all!!!

And the new hairdo is is cute as a button!!



My eldest daughter Lissa, had her birthday on Thursday...

She came to visit us on Friday...and got to spend some time with Miss V and her sister Erika, when she came to pick up Miss V... 

I crocheted her this pot cover and bought her a jade Plant to go in it...

I just kinda made up the pattern...loosely based on a hat pattern!! hahaha!!

Also a couple of can never have too many of those...

My son Ryan's birthday is today!!

Did not get to see him, but will see him next Sunday when his daughter Miss N has her Baptism... 

Thanks to all my IG buddies, for all their well wishes for my kids...♥️

             Ryan and his Dad...          

                                                                                               Lissa and I...                          

Hope you are all well...

   Cooler temps yesterday and today...but we are in for a warm up again...

      We are heading back down to the cottage on Monday morning...

        Our rakes are wondering where we have been!!! 

              Have a great week...
