bugs, dress up and other such things...

Wow. Long time no post. sorry. Life has just been moving along way to fast lately. Tomorrow is June! May was a blurrr...glad it is behind me! The picture of my chalkboard in this post says it mind has just been blank lately. Miss Addi's sister has now joined us full time and our days are spent playing dress up and finding lots of bugs! Here is Karissa with her new friend...he is a worm and she named him inchy!!! to cute. They love their playhouse. Every year I seem to gravitate towards a certain flower, this year it is the trailing verbena! I bought three of these pink lovely hanging pretty! We also have been busy hitting the garages sales on Thursdays...the girls are excellent sign spotters! they can see one a mile away! Got to train them in early...I hope you have a great weekend! Hope to blog again soon!

(check) 3. sweep out the screen porch and add plants, wash curtains in screen porch too.(check) 4. Rake the yard (check) 5. take off storm window and put up screens(check) 6. straighten that potting shed sign (again) (check). Straighten up the playhouse...those girls didn't pick it up when they were done on Friday! (check) . What are your spring rituals? Next on my list is to sit down and make out a list for next weekend!

Last weekend I kept myself busy by turning my garage into a playhouse for my nieces. Miss Addie's sister Karissa is joining us for the summer! so I white washed the walls and painted their names on door panels and did a chalkboard on the walls...the other side of the garage is auntie's harvest table and chairs to sit and blog on her laptop while they play...they love it! We added a screen door for those hot summer days...I wonder if it will be as cool a summer as our spring has been? These two little girls have been keeping me busy these last few days, which is just what I need! I am so blessed to have them in my life....
