No big trips. Just a relaxed schedule, a day trip, special food treats, and a few spring sprucing projects.
I've been watching this lantern at Hobby Lobby for almost a year. I could only find one at a time and figured that was a sign I didn't really need them. This past week, candle holders and metal decorative items were 50 % off and there were two lanterns! We installed them on our front porch and they add such a welcoming touch. It's beautiful to have real candlelight at the front door.
I'm in a painting mood. So, don't stand still for long at our house! I painted the kitchen door leading into the garage and the exterior side of the back porch door this lovely turquoisey-teal color. Such a happy touch of color! And I'm getting better at painting without taping off the area. Angled brushes are the key.
|See, that birdhouse sat still too long near the paint.|
We took a day trip to the zoo in Waco on the advice of many friends who said it is the best zoo for little ones. It is a lovely zoo and we ended up buying a year's membership so we can go back. Plus, we get free admission to the Houston Zoo.
|My comment to the kids: "And this is why Mama never went swimming in our pond on the farm."|
|"Not ANOTHER picture!"|
|Love the slide in the otter pond!|
We joined friends for a fun St. Patrick's Day party. Delicious corned beef, potatoes, key lime pie and real Irish coffees. Good conversation & friends, along with Argentinian wine to celebrate a new pontiff. 'Tis a grand time!
|Yep, that's 20 children!|
