Slow Wednesday

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

A nice quiet day today. Sun is out and temps are perfect. I've been out walking and will be outside most of today. Also working on my new rug. Tonight is Bible Study at church and then tomorrow I do my volunteer day at the art gallery. I so enjoy days like today. Weather perfect and getting good exercise.

    Hope you enjoyed your day outside! It was windy here most of the day. I actually had to wear mittens on my 6:30 AM walk.

I can so relate to your farmer picture. My laptop was giving me fits last night, and I ended up uninstalling some programs and then reinstalling them today. Mac's are starting to sound awfully good to me :-)

Busy 2 days and lost internet

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

I took off Sunday due to so much going on at church. I got up early Sunday morning and prepared a veggie and a fruit tray and a strawberry delight dish for pot luck. The youth did the program and was so wonderful. We are so proud to have such a great youth group in our church. Pot luck was a hit...And then they had an egg hunt for the younger kids afterwards. Great time visiting for us older folk. Came home and did a long walk so got lots of exercise Sunday. Went to bed early (7pm) as I was so tired.

On Monday I rested and did some laundry. Did a good walk and ate better than I did this past weekend. I had some left over veggies from potluck and so steamed them for lunch. I also drew up a new rug. This one is named "3 Little Chicks"...I began hooking it and finished one of the chickens last night. Lost my satellite internet due to storms so went to bed early.

It is amazing how nice and clean a good rain does for the air and all. The pollen had been so bad all weekend and now it looks so sparkling clean. Got out early and walked. Hubby went fishing so I decided to get here early and get my posting and internet time over and then back to hooking. I'm taking it outside to hook today. Just have to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
Here are a few funnies..




And this one is for JULES!!!

Saturday blessings

Saturday, April 19, 2014

It's been a long day but have really enjoyed today.
Two of the daughter in loves came out with 4 of the granddaughers today. We had a wonderful time and weather was perfect. We at a lunch out under the gazebo and then the older 2 grands hid eggs for the younger 2. Had such a good time. I will be headed to bed early tonight and then get up early in the morning to prepare the rest of the stuff I'm taking for pot luck at church. So thought I would share some photos.
These are one of the DILs with her 3 girls


Other DIL with Miss Molly

Friday

Friday, April 18, 2014

Fridays seem like they are always busy for me. I usually change my bed linens on this day and do laundry.. I do laundry about twice a week but today's laundry with the bed linens always seems to be more. Drove into town this morning and went to the local plant nursery. Hubby got fertilizer and I bought lots of annuals to go in my planters in front of the house. Went out to the DIL's and got some eggs and then to grocery store. Making veggie and fruit trays for Sunday's potluck at church. Also making a Strawberry Delight...layered angelfood cake with strawberries and cream cheese-cool whip mix. Two of the DILs and their girls are coming out tomorrow so am getting things prepared for them as well. We finally pulled up the rosemary tree that died this winter and replanted 2 new ones and got some grass removing done in the raised bed as well. Hubby has gone fishing and I'm looking at what I can draw on a new rug.

Hope everyone has a very blest Easter. Don't eat too much.

A lazy Thursday

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Got up this morning and was going to do my sparking here first thing and first thing turning on my computer had it to crash. I recovered it ok but while it was reformulating I cut some woolie worms for my rug hooking at another time. I like keeping them on hand already cut so when I get ready to hook a rug, I have them ready to go. Then one of my DILs called me and was having problems with some graphic work. Something to do with the granddaughter's graduation invitations..so she and the DGD will be by here around 4 for me to help them with it. Glad to know I can be of help sometimes.

We got all our plants out of the plant house and moved them to the gazebo. Then we planted the tomato and pepper plants in the garden. Also planted the succulents in some of the planters out front. I also removed some very rusted metal butterflies I had on one of my clematis trellis. So it has been busy but lazy. Off now to draw up a rug.
