Not sure if you remember the gnome kit I got the kids back in Feb. Well, Jess and Francesca just put them together on their Summer break, and had a fun time creating them. I think they turned out really cute.
Also, uncle b. got the kids the Legos castle in Frozen, and they just put together Anna's castle. Jess said it was a perfect gift cause Francesca already had Elsa's, so now she has Anna's too.
I saw this fellow through the window, and took a few pictures until I shooed him away. He's a pretty bird for sure, but I can't tell you how many holes he's pecked under the eaves of my house, and his constant knocking is sometimes a distraction.
I went to the home shop and talked with the owner, A, while I browsed. I've always loved this statue when I visited in the past, so I bought it. It was filled with grapes and greenery, but I thought it was too much, so I took it out, and placed a simple blush rose in it.
My son had the day off from work, and went down the mountain into the city for the day. He had a great time, and brought me home some goodies, as he knows I don't drive to the city that often. Whooohooo, a big box with all my favorite pieces.
I've been dealing with a big plumbing issue at my house all last week. But thanks to my brother and a good plumber, it's almost finished. My first peach rose bloomed at just the right time (peach rose symbolizes gratitude). It made it through the cold winter and snow.
My pink rose bush also made it through the winter. We have some pretty harsh weather here during that time, and I was surprised to see it sprouted up again this Spring.
Francesca is on Summer break from school, and Jess always finds wonderful cafes and places to get a treat and spend some time together.
My son fried up some battered shrimp one night with his own special sauce to go with it. It was really good.
I've had lots of things to take care of this month, plumbing issues, car maintenance, dental work, and sometimes it all seems to come at once, doesn't it? So, I thought I'd cook a meatloaf one night for comfort food.
I saw this card at the store and thought it was so pretty. I want to frame it sometime. I'd like to have more florals in my home this Summer.
When I look at this picture of Mia, it takes me back ** years. I looked a lot like her when I was a child.
See what I mean.....
