We had a turtle come and visit today. I think he liked the looks of our garden beds and wanted to come see how things were done over this way!
I'm not too sure he really saw anything though, he didn't seem to be tall enough.
Gertie was very interested in him though, watched him from the window above the desk and then the window by the couch and then this window in the back door. She really wanted to go out and play but I didn't think that was probably a good idea. So she stuck by the windows and hoped he would want to come IN and play. Luckily for me he didn't!

We didn't do much for Mother's Day this year. We thought about maybe going to the beach but poor West had a bit of a sunburn on his back from the day before hanging out playing in the hose all day so decided against that. So mostly we just hung around the house wasting the time away.
We did however decide to go out to eat supper to do a bit of celebrating, even if we didn't do a lot of it. (We had wings if you couldn't tell from the picture)
And Friday the kids came home from school with little pots with flowers in them for me and they each had made a little card to go along with them. So I planted the flowers in one of my favorite pots so I can look at it while I'm sitting outside enjoying this beautiful weather we are having at the moment.
Hope everyone else had a grand Mother's Day, or maybe just a relaxing one, but either way Happy Mother's Day

Easter came and went and with it the coming of Spring is right around the corner! This means warmer weather and plants growing and playing outside and coffee on the back porch and bbq grills cooking and shorts and skirts and so many other great things! I love winter, don't get me wrong, but spring time means I get to go out and get my hands in the dirt.
Easter however meant dying eggs and hunting them, and then again, and again, and one more time for good measure. We lost one for awhile, but it was found this morning and all is well again.

Look what came this week! Aren't they gorgeous?
It's amazing what this little arrangement of flowers can do for the spirit. They are sitting in the middle of my kitchen table so every time I walk in the house or am doing the dishes or getting the kids out the door for some activity we are doing I can look up and see these and know that the Rooster was thinking of me. It's a good feeling for sure, makes the heart feel good, and I'll take that!
