I finally got around to making the hubs an apple pie today that he has been requesting for a couple of weeks.
After my walk I started cleaning out my perennial flower boarders. They needed and still need a lot of work.
|Just getting started.|
It may take me the complete summer before I find something to hang in each opening. I think it will be fun to keep this project in mind when I go to the flea market. If anyone has any suggestions on fun things to add please let me know. I was thinking maybe small potted plants wired in a couple of the openings might work or a pretty little wind chime. Had thought about spray painting it but hubs was not to keen on that idea. What if I just painted the leaves?
I have decided since I worked so hard today that a piece of the pie I baked for hubs is calling my name along with some time reading the magazine that I received in the mail today. A perfect ending to a really good day!
Wishing you many blessings from our home in the woods.

Thought I would join up with Deborah at Deborah Jean's Dandelion House Tuesday sewing party. I worked on some ongoing projects this past weekend. I have been making the monthly Aurifil Designer of the Month blocks this year. I caught up this weekend by getting the April and May blocks finished.
I also finished bordering the last block of the this past years Red Brolly SAL.
Then I almost finished sewing the borders on to complete the top. But the weather, it took a turn and I needed to get outside and start working in the flower beds. I hope to finish adding the top and bottom borders this week and then I will have to decide if I will hand quilt or machine quilt this for a wall hanging.
Wishing you all sunny days and blessings through the rest of your week!

It was time to add some hens back into my flock this year. We are down to six from our original flock of twelve.
These are the chicks the day I picked them up from the post office, I believe from the day they shipped to the day we received them it makes them three days old in this picture. They are Barred Rock, Black Star, Delaware and White Wyandottes.
Hubs built this stand that slides under the container they are in at this time to hang the heat lamp on.
A week old.
Today, almost three weeks old.
I got a new computer a couple of weeks ago and it has taken me that long to figure out how to import my pictures and find an app that I liked to edit them in. So I think I can truthfully say that I will be blogging a lot more often. I hope to catch up with everyone soon! I hope you are all having a wonderful spring! Blessings from our home in the woods.
