Thursday Thoughts

Today I'm thinking about...

...nothing much. Except spring! Spring is finally here in Pennsylvania! And this weekend we are going to sweep and scrub the front porch and set out my rockers. Good times. Good times. I am so looking forward to mornings outside with my coffee. : ) I hope your weekend is warm and spring filled too, my friends. Here is a peek at the past week in our country home...

I changed out the bedding on our bed. Goodbye warm flannels. See you in October. : )

Cranberry tea and cranberry muffins. : )

My baby.

And Grandma teaching her how to play Tic Tac Toe. : )

She also had a lunch date with her Aunt Sally. Steve's sister Sally and Flynn have always been close...even before Flynn was born. Sally blessed me with a clean house and homemade meals throughout my pregnancy...as well as tons of prayers. : )

The signs of spring are everywhere. Happy.Happy.Happy.

And finally...just a black and white selfie on the way to the grocery store. Because I had real clothes on. And makeup too!

Happy spring weekend, my friends!

  16. Hello dear friend!!! Saw that you left me a message in MARCH! Thank you so much for thinking of me. I think of you often. I am back to blogging after taking a year off…how did I lose a year of my life! *sigh* Anyway, Spring has arrived here too on the prairie. Finally! :)
