The Week in Pictures

Sunday morning coffee on our front porch; watching the beautiful sunrise

My magnolia tree in full bloom!

Cherry blossoms blooming on a perfect spring day

Daddy teaching Annabel how to ride her two-wheel bike

The Spirit Catcher in downtown Barrie

I love it! 

Watching the sunset with my Mom

Re-filling the bird feeder with new food

A pretty new addition to our side garden - astilbe - thank you, Mom!

Hanging laundry out to dry in the warm sunshine

I found this brand-new-in-box bird clock while thrift-shop hunting with my mom.  It is now hanging on my kitchen wall!

My mom and I in the garden.  How I enjoyed spending this precious week with her!   

Wishing everyone a happy spring and a wonderful Mother's day weekend! xoxo

  7. Ahh so happy that you had such a full and sweet week. Spring is nice with everything blooming. Glad you had so much fun with your mom. Annabel looks very adept at her bike with her dad trotting alongside. You should save that pic of your mugs for your 50th anniversary party. It's like the symbol of your life together. ♥

    Your 2 wonderful mugs Rosinda + Nuno are always spilling forth with blessings! Keep sharing them with us. We love gathering around your kitchen table!

    Much love to you for Mother's Day!
