Wow! It has really been a busy week around here, as I guess it probably has been a lot of places. With Mother’s Day being last weekend and the beginning of May birthday celebrations for our family, Brian (my oldest son), Lauren (his wife), and Liam (my one and only grandchild at the moment) came and stayed Friday night and Saturday night as well.
He liked crawling up into Grandpa’s chair.
Sean and Michael bought me flowers for Mother’s Day! I love flowers. They make me happy . . . I really like the kind that stay alive and keep blooming, although there are times for cut flowers inside too. At any rate, the kids cleaned out my flower bed and planted them for me. This is the before shot. I did pull out some weeds before the weekend. Liam helped Tiffany get the flowers out of the car.Everybody worked hard weeding and planting! Nobody looks their best when working but it is oh, so appreciated.
Here’s a closeup of the flowers. The flamingo was Michael’s idea last year.
Me and Liam outside.
Kitten break. This is the youngest of the kittens at only about 3 weeks old now.
One last view of the finished flower bed.
After a shower, he was ready for lunch and then a nap. And he was still jabbering. It will be interesting once he actually starts putting words together.
Michael went and bought some chickens while they were doing the flowers. He got back as they were finishing up. Liam decided he wanted to ride in the truck with Papa.
Tiff says she thinks they are in the “ugly teenager” stage. We’ve been getting one egg most days, so at least one of them is producing. They also seem a bit distrustful of humans, so she’s singing to them to try to get them to warm up to her. There are a couple that don’t seem to want to go outside but she shoos them out anyway. They’ll adjust eventually.
You can clearly tell the difference between the two eggs. The one on the left is from our hens and the one on the right is from the grocery store. (I did nothing to this photo.)
Liam loves his Poppa!!!!
We grabbed a quick family picture at my mom’s house on Sunday.Tiffany made a wonderful Italian Cream Cake from AllDayIDreamAboutFood.
Well, I think that is enough for this week; I need to run. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Until next time, God bless,
