Staying out of the wind and rain

Can you see our little "friend" hunkered down against the storm?

That is how the weekend started out, a bit stormy and gray, and very windy.

Than it all cleared up and it was gorgeous out.Princess and Farmer Dad played a little baseball

Hauled some rocksWe took a long drive

hung out in the backyard, that is me on my lounge chair reading..

this is an attempt to take a photo ourselves of "us"

The swing set saw a bit if action as well. I also re-configured the"school" room, clearing out stuff we no longer use and fitting in some new(to us) stuff.

How did you spend your weekend?

When the thunderstorm rolled through at about 7 a.m., it woke me up, so I got on the phone with hubby.

Gavin slept through it!

Our second thunderstorm was around, oh...10 a.m. or so...? And it has gone from gray and cloudy to sunny to ominous to sunny and back to blue-gray.

Thank goodness we got out for a couple of hours yesterday!

I love your glimpse of the day here. Yep, Im just getting my indoor seeds started. I dont do any of the cool weather crops cause mine is basically a canning garden and I need all my energy for the 40 bean bushes and the 20 tomato plants etc that I need to put in and can and process. For some reason this year Im tired before I start!

You've got flowers already? Wow. Great pix!

We were supposed to get 7-11 inches of snow this weekend. Instead we got a skiff, lots of cold and wind.

I spent the weekend worrying about our car loan. lol Silly, I pay my bills, but I hate applying for loans.

It looks like P has grown. Her legs look long and it looks like she's lost more of the little girl look.
Wishing you warmth,

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
