Home again, for a bit and an orange dinosaur

Home now after another trip up north to the cottage this past week. Dan has been working on the excavator over on the hunting property. It has been one thing after another with that thing, which I call the Orange Dinosaur.

I spent time with Rosie and did some cleaning around the cottage. 

Of course, it is always fun to watch the birds at our feeders and Rosie's feeders. 

Some more beauty! 

lilacs and snowball bush

Rosie picked up her new glasses! SO cute!

Love her. πŸ’–

The boys always enjoy time at the cottage as well.

be blessed!

Happy Monday~

 Happy Monday! I hope the weekend was a good one for you. πŸ’• I have been doing things around the house. You know, the usual...laundry and cleaning.  Saturday, I did a small amount of yard work. I trimmed the maple tree that is in my rock garden, pulled weeds. Felt good to get that accomplished.

Sunday was church. So good to be with our church family worshipping the Lord.  

Have a lovely day, I will leave you with following.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.


Isaiah 41:10

As we step into the day, let's remember Isaiah 41:10. God tells us that we needn't be afraid or overwhelmed, for He is always with us. He is our strength in times of weakness and our helper in times of need, and He upholds us with His righteous hand. This reassuring promise is a reminder of God's unfailing presence and support, fueling us with courage and hope as we face our daily challenges

Quote of the Day

"When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure."

— Peter Marshall

The Vine B &B, Rixci and Rosie

I love this sweet photo of our granddaughter Rixci on Easter 
at my brother and sister in law's B & B.
Rixci's beautiful outfit fits in perfectly with this historic house. 

When I was at our cottage last week I took my dear friend Rosie to our friend Laura's greenhouse. Laura lives about one mile from Rosie and us. Laura has beautiful flowers and vegetable plants. We had so much fun looking around. 

Enjoy your weekend!

Spring~Cottage~30th Anniversary~Mother's Day~Gardening

 Here are a few pics I took while we were at our cottage! 
The weather was beautiful, temps in the 60's and 70's. 

Tucker and Charlie

Dan and I celebrated our 30th anniversary while we were up there. Our anniversary was on Sunday, May 15.  Same day as Mother's Day! Since it was Mother's Day weekend, we went out for a nice dinner Friday evening at Antler's Fireside Grill . SO good! 

Fettuccini Alfredo
House made parmesan alfredo sauce with fettuccini noodles
 and shaved asparagus. With scallops.
Salmon Oscar
Grilled salmon, lump crab, bearnaise sauce, rice pilaf, and green beans.
Cherry Cobbler
Michigan sweet cherries infused with bourbon, topped with a sweet crust, 
and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Mother's Day I talked to all of my kids and a few of the grandkids. 
It was a nice, relaxing day. 

Of course, I was especially missing my mom on Mother's Day. 
This is the third Mother's Day without her. 

I am back home for a few days. 
 Babysitting for some of the grandkids a couple days this week. 
I plan on working in my rock garden on Saturday, sprucing it up a bit! 

Be blessed!

 Happy Mother's Day and God bless!
