Well, Hello Again!

Another week has passed without a single post.

I wish I could say that I was on a tropical vacation, soaking up the sun with my toes in the sand, having colorful drinks with umbrellas sticking out of them handed to me while I lay on a chaise by the pool...

Not so much.

I've been here at home.

But I do have a good excuse.

THE SUN CAME OUT!

Woohoo!
The gorgeous weather started last Thursday and has been going strong ever since. So, needless to say, we have been soaking up the sun right in our own backyard. We're outside from sun up until dinner time and then when we finally do come inside it's time to eat and begin the bedtime routine, which includes long baths for the kids because they are covered in sunscreen and dirt! By the time they're in bed it's time for me to try and tackle all of the chores that I have ignored while spending the day outside...
(You should see the mountain of dirty clothes inhabiting my laundry room right now!)
All of which leaves very little time for being on the computer.

My poor husband spent the past several days sick in bed. Poor guy. That's like torture for a guy living in the Pacific Northwest who has spent a very long winter waiting to see the sun.

Luckily, he's on the mend now though! Thank goodness!

Yesterday we finally planted our Sugar Snap Peas in our little garden in the backyard.

Last year we had more peas than we knew what to do with, but they were so good!

We feel like we've got a much better set up for them to climb this year, so we'll see!

It was a great day!

This kids decided to break out the camping chairs.

Can't wait to start camping again!


Another beautiful day for the mountain!

Today is supposed to be 72 degrees!

I love it that weeding is suddenly not such a chore when the sun is out! Any excuse to be out there works for me!

I'll be back to share this week's Cookie Recipe which includes a happy accident that resulted in even better cookies! And what became of that "Free Stuff" Headboard that I found on the side of the road! I love how it turned out and I can't wait to show you!

Have a Great day!
