Happy Homemaker Monday




Happy Monday Friends! 

And to my U.S. friends happy Memorial Day. I hope you've been having a nice one and having a fun extended weekend. I'm thinking today especially about all of our military that gave their lives for our country and our freedoms...and for all of those military folks and their families working and sacrificing currently. I thank them and ask that God bless them all.  

We've had a great weekend so far! Some relatives came in from Green Bay and we had a gathering over here Saturday. And it was gorgeous here yesterday and I got some nice lazy time in the sun. Today is gray and chances of rain - but I'm going to go pick up some more of my flowers because it's supposed to be pretty nice this week so I'd like to finally get to planting!

On Saturday we got everything mowed and cleaned up for company and got the fire table going to sit around later:
















wild daffodils in the woods next to our yard



wild pansies among the rocks in Annie's garden




I made a mixed berry pie for the occasion 😋 



we visited and then played games around the fire pit


I have a special Uncle Don - he's mentally challenged - and Annie was doing all kinds of filters on him and cracking him up! 😃

Happy Homemaker Monday




Hello Friends ~

Happy Monday to you. I have a busy morning ahead so will make this a quick hello. Hope you had a lovely weekend. It was a nice one here...even though it rained and was cold. Some areas around us even got some snow! (aahhh!! nothing worse than snow in May). I am still thinking summer thoughts and planting of flowers and I've been excited to see my bleeding hearts start to come up and some tulips out around town. Spring is still here! I even shared some fun grilling recipes and summer thoughts in a post over the weekend. I feel energized to share more posts than just HHM each week - so please pop by again 😊 

This weekend I also had fun going out with a girlfriend for dinner and catch up. And Saturday my girl had a friend sleep over and we went to church together and then out for sushi ;) Fun weekend and now on to the week ahead.

TIP OF THE WEEK:
















FROM THE CAMERA






even though it was cold and rainy outside it was cozy inside this weekend - baking of banana bread with chocolate and butterscotch chips of course 😋 



And I sent this pic to a friend showing her I was a sassy rebel still wearing shorts even though the outside was telling me it felt more like winter. My rebelliousness worked because Mother Nature has her act together this beautiful day ☀️ 







Ate too much yummy food this weekend - sushi and a yummy sweet and spicy chicken BA meal
