Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

Happy Wednesday.....

Yesterday, I spent the day working on prizes for my Winner a Week Giveaway (it's a continuance of my Name That Bear Contest from my selling blog)  The weather was warm but the day was filled with sudden bursts of torrential downpours.

Today, I was out snapping a few pictures of my newest Blooms...A nice sunny day here, storms coming this afternoon.

such Vibrant Colors

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie anyone?   yes, soon...

Tomorrow, I will draw the first winner for my weekly giveaway.  I will draw a winner each Thursday for four weeks, the winner will be selected from those who entered my Bear Contest.

The first winner will be able to choose their prize out of these four prizes.  The second & third winners will choose from the remaining prizes and the fourth winner will have to settle for what's left, LOL...

Here are the Prizes....
Prize #1
Spring Pillow Tucks
(no you can't have my nest!)

Prize #2
Basket of Strawberries

Prize #3
Penny Rug Pillow

Prize #4
Prairie Stump Doll

Please pray with me for those folks being effected by the terrible flooding, tornadoes and fires.  There are so many who have lost their lives, their homes or are living in fear of loosing them. 

God Bless,

Easter Party Prep....

Yesterday, I spent the day prepping for Maygan's classroom Easter Party....

I love being a room Mom! 
Seeing the kids all excited and having some fun...

We'll be playing Easter Egg Bocce Ball, an In Your Desk Scavenger Hunt, an Egg on a Spoon Relay Race and playing Egg Clue...  writing the clues was the hardest part!

This morning, to the kitchen I go to make some Cookies ( I cheated, bought a mix and the frosting too)

Then it's off to school to hide the clues, back home to frost cookies
 and then back to school for Party Time!

I finally managed to get some of my Easter Shopping done yesterday as well, Thank Goodness!  Hadn't done a thing till then, no Easter Ham, no basket fillers, yikes...

Wishing you a Blessed Day!

Our Weekend....It's good to be home

This was last summer, never thought to get a picture of the outside, next time....

The weather wasn't the best, but the company sure was!  We had a little sunshine, lots of rain, sleet, snow and WIND!  Not the best weekend for being in the woods or out fishing, we made the best of it and enjoyed every minute...

Arrived at "Trout Camp" on Friday afternoon.  This camp has been in my hubby's family since 1965, it's not much to look at but it holds soooo many wonderful memories and we keep makin' more.

The camp is a 1950's trailer (hard to believe but before it was our camp, a family of five lived in it). 

At least we have running water and a flush toilet!

The table with two benches fold up into a little cubby for more floorspace...

Maygan had the 1st Catch of the Day...
but Dad caught the most, only one for me

It's always good to get away for the weekend, but just as good to come home. 

Praying for those effected by this weekends terrible storms, my thoughts are with you....
