Shopping with Frosso at Southlands Nursery.
Finding some beautiful plants to take back to
Crafting and playing Dominos with Claire.
Weekends come and go so quickly.!
It has turned out to be quite a nice weekend.
We have seen the sun peek thru the clouds a couple times this week.
I hope wherever you are,
you are enjoying a good weekend surrounded by family and loved ones.
A few chocolates to enjoy wouldn't be a bad idea as well!
Staying for a couple days with Frosso.
Seeing her beautiful garden, visiting and catching up with old friends.
Spending the weekend with Claire,
Jeremy and Julie.
Baking cupcakes, reading, walking, taking lots of photos,
playing together, watching her at her karate class,
going out for dinner,
bath time, bedtime,
good morning snuggles.
It was a really special time.
Thankfully Frosso was at her Vancouver home this visit.
She travels between Halifax, Vancouver and Cyprus.
We went thrifting, visiting friends and
just catching up as old friends do.
Her garden is stunning, her hellebores are beautiful
as are seeing the flowers in her
This afternoon I head over to spend the weekend
with Claire and her gang.
You can imagine how excited I am to see them.
Claire arrived back to Vancouver late Saturday night
after nearly 2 weeks on her spring break.
Jeremy and Julie were wonderful about taking and sharing the
pictures they took.
She will have such good memories of this
Now we could enjoy their holiday with them.
I can't wait to see her this week.
Claire's big moment was being with some of
the Disney Princesses on board the
Disney Fantasy Cruise.
I must admit that I am pretty biased when I say I think she looks adorable.
(Love that her front teeth are growing in.)
Today they are in Georgetown on Grand Cayman.
Jeremy's only wish was to swim with the dolphins.
He will get his wish today.
Today Claire is headed on her 7 day,
Carriabean Disney Cruise,
taking along her parents and grandparents.
To say she is excited is an understatement.
For the past few days they have been in Walt Disney World in Orlando.
Jeremy had been there 5 times by the time he was 5 years old.
He was very lucky as his godmother lived in West Palm Beach.
This will be Claire's first time in WDW
and her first cruise.
I am sure it won't be her last.
While the rain or snow is still falling,
I get busy
crafting and cooking..two of my favourite things.
I have always wanted to paint a
Paint By Number.
I got one for Cindy as well and each day we send
each other photos of our
progress on the painting.
I am still finishing off a scarf I started before leaving for Thailand,
as well as finishing a needlework pillow I have been working
on and off for several years,
Grilling up a whole bunch of vegetables to use
in soups and as a side dish.
My days are happy and full.
Did I tell you that it was snowing again.
Really, well it is.
So soup was on the menu for dinner tonight.
I had been given these soup package as a gift.
(Thanks Sue McLure)
It was apparently the best soup Jim has ever had, could bacon in it
be the reason?
Cindy thinks so.
The crusty baguette added a nice addition.
Thankfully, I have enough to freeze to several more
