Blooms....& A beautiful Baptism...









                                      Here is Miss V with her Pumpkins and Sunflowers...

 




My son Ryan and DIL Anna, had their beautiful daughter Nora baptized on May 6th...

My daughter Lissa and SIL Jeff were the Godparents...

It was a lovely celebration...

Miss V thoroughly enjoyed the whole service...and couldn't take her eyes off of her new Cousin ♥️ 

And just look at that Ballerina Dress!!

She looked gorgeous...

And didn't cry at all....

We all went back to Ryan and Anna's for lunch... 



Me and my girls...and with my newest Granddaughter ♥️
 

I promised to show you all what I had made for Miss N...

I cross-stitched her, her birthdate...

I hadn't done this for YEARS...but it all came back to me.

I was very pleased with the way it turned out...and with the frame that I picked.

                                         ~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hope you are all well...and had a wonderful Mothers Day...

The weather here has been very warm of late...the garden is bursting its seams!! 

We are heading down to the cottage in the morning...still lots to be done down there...it promises to be a few nice sunny days.

This weekend is our first long weekend of the Summery months, here in Canada...The Queen's Birthday!! We call it the 24th of May weekend...but this year it falls on the 21st...and the weather looks hideous!!

Usually the kids come down to the cottage for their first visit of the year...

But I doubt if that will happen this year...

80% chance of rain both Saturday & Sunday...:o(

Oh well...there will be lots of weekends...right???

Enjoy the rest of your week...

        See you soon...

               Cheers! :o)

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 dishcloths...you 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...

The Calm Before...During...& After The Storm...














The Storm blew in late Friday April the 13th evening...

It blew and snowed and hailed and ice pelleted and freezing rained us and snowed on us for 3 days!!!!!! 

Monday there was no school, so we got our Miss V for the day!!!

Besides baking, we also made a shell bracelet, and made upcoming birthday cards for her Aunt and Uncle.

She even got to help her Papa try and  move the VERY heavy snow on our court....

She is getting pretty darn good at cracking those eggs! 💛💜💚

 


These are her cupcakes...full of blueberries, chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. We also added 4 bananas to the mix...

My cake is below...enjoyed as always with fresh berries and Greek Yogurt...

She later iced hers and added about 4 inches of sprinkles!!!

They were packed for her to take home to Mommy, to share.

Oh...another bright note during the hideous storm...

Another of my Cactus bloom...lovely bright Fuschia colour...

 



Do you think this Squirrel at the cottage could get right INTO the bird feeder????

Geesh...and the Chickadees and Nuthatch were trying to get in!!

 


On Friday we headed off to the cottage...for our first sleepover, and delivery of new appliances...

All went well...it was still pretty chilly down there, so we got as much done in one day outside as we could.

Saturday am, was very chilly, so we puttered around inside for a while, and then packed up and came home. 

we did have a beautiful fire after dinner on Friday...so I was a happy camper...


On a cuter note...my son sent me this pic of Miss N...

LOOK at those blue eyes!!!!  And the blonde hair!!!   What a dollie!!!

She was 5 months old yesterday...wish we could see her more often...

Her Baptism is coming up in 2 weeks, and I have made her something I think is
 pretty special...I will show you after i give it to Miss N....

 


Hope you are all well...and enjoying this warmer weather...

Raking #2 for yards here at home...they are looking much better...

We are heading back to the cottage in the morning...supposed to be 17*C!!!

Hopefully get some more raking done there...and cut down all the Miscanthus!!

Then on Thursday...Miss V arrives again...sleepover and PD day...YIPPEE!!!


          So....have a great Earth Day...and a fabulous week....

                           See you soon...

                                   Cheers!  :o)
