Spring has Sprung .....


Photobucket
More Rainbows....
The weather has been very unpredictable but I think this is the true characteristics of spring the warm sun will be out one moment and the next the wind will pick up and it will be raining sideways and then the sun comes back out and we open up the doors and windows to let the fresh spring breeze in and then the next thing you know we are closing the doors and windows and turning on the furnace and lighting a fire.....We seem to be running out doors when we can and then running back inside when the weather decides to turn on us....
But there is so much to do inside and out here are some snapshots of what we have been busy doing as we chase the sun or run from the rain....
Some Baking.....
When it was raining I pulled out my Grandfathers recipe book and baked some bread. The fresh bread seem to disappear rather quickly...

  1. Well I just love your pictures you post. I can't believe you all are in your spring! A little jealous here:D

    Love, love the picture of your daughter watering the flowers. Priceless.

    Who doesn't love home made bread. I can just smell it now. Aaaahhh

    Happy birthday to your boy! What a blessing!

    Love the apron. Getting ready to make one for my daughter:D

    Take care!

  3. Dear Heather,

    Oh, so much fun! Noah is getting to be quite the artist; and Anna will have so much fun with her own little garden to play with.

    And of course, happy birthday to Liam! What a cute cake. :)

    The apron looks so pretty in pink~I'll really have to hunt my box of patterns up and make me another one. You can never have too many aprons, right?

    Enjoy your sun/rain/sun/rain/wind/sun/rain for us :).

    Love,

  4. Oh my what a beautiful rainbow!

    Happy Birthday to Liam :) My little girl is going to be 11yrs old on Sunday, and I am so looking forward to this.

    Homemade bread...now, wasn't that fun? I bet the smell was absolutely delicious!!

    Anna is becoming such an accomplished helper to you dear friend. What a blessing she is to you and your loved ones!

    Your day - was just what the Lord blessed you with :)

  5. I do believe that spring is coming early here on the west coast! I fell sad that we didn't have any winter ~ it looks as though the eastern side of the country is getting it all!
    Your Grandfather's bread recipe turned out beautifully! It looks grand! What a sweet pic of Anna (hope I am remembering correctly) watering the flowers around the bunny yard! And I have been enjoying the birds here, too! We had a hummingbird looking for nectar at our bird feeders Saturday! Yep! I think spring has arrived! You look just as cute as can be in your new apron! Great Job!
    Wishing you Blessings!
    p.s. And Happy Birthday, Liam!

  7. 'Morning Heather,
    What a charming post! Happy Birthday Liam! I don't think there is a more comforting scent wafting through one's home than freshly baked bread! I have just put the kettle on, come on by and have tea with me, ok? Have a beautiful day, my friend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  8. Those two loaves of bread look so pretty! Delicious as well. Love the Bluebird! Just saw a blogger post some all the way in Northwestern NY. They are beautiful and varieties cover a large area.

    Nice visiting with you!
    Kindly, ldh

  9. What a great post... How wonderful to have your grandfather's recipe book!!! I don't think I know anyone who has their "grandfather's" recipe book; it's usually their mom's or grandmother's. That makes it all the more special. It looks like it's chock full of great recipes.

    I love the pictures you have posted here. That bluebird is stunning! Your bread looks delicious. Anna and her dolls are adorable. Noah's sketchbook bird is amazing... what artistic talent you all have.

    Happy Birthday to Liam! My they are growing up so fast. The birthday cake looks great... did you make it yourself?

    Love your cute little garden, the flowers are so pretty and colorful. As always, you did a wonderful job sewing.... love the apron too!
    So many fun and wonderful things going on.... what blessedness.

    Thank you for sharing and brightening my day : ) I always leave her with a smile.

    Blessings,

  10. Happy belated birthday Liam!

    It looks like you've been having a wonderful week! I am looking forward to the milder days again, although I am enjoying our new snowfall again too.

    Your Edwardian apron is wonderful! I think I would be more faithful about wearing my aprons if I made on like that.

    Blessings!
