A Bunch of Daffodils

Some weekends are just not as productive as I hoped they would be. I was uninspired and had a headache for the better part of Saturday, and it was very cold and rainy too. We have mud- and LOTS of it!

We went out for Kristina's birthday. This is the first time we have ever gone out for a birthday dinner. I always cook at home for everyone. We had a really good time and I enjoyed that I was able to sit and visit with all the family. No cooking, no cleaning!

And......  we picked up a Green House!! 

We hope to get started on putting it up next weekend. It is small, but a great start. I am not a good "seedling mom"- so better get busy researching and planning on what to plant. I am very excited to get started.

Today the usual chores slipped by the way side for the most part.   A long time ago we used to show horses. There was a horse show in Red Bluff this weekend, one that we used to frequent every year for a very long time. Tonya and I rode up there this afternoon. The horses and show attire remains pretty much unchanged, but all the faces were mostly strangers.

I spent a good portion of the late afternoon sitting on the front porch soaking up as much sun as possible.
The temperatures were very cool and it froze last night-29 degrees this morning! I know, nothing compared to the mid-west and back east.

These are the mountains out back... 

Pluot tree in the orchard...

I brought some flowers inside to brighten up the kitchen...

There used to be a Pepsi bottling company in town.

I am working on some new aprons and will be updating my apron page soon.

  1. The picture of the mountains looks good, should have made it bigger. And of course, I love the daffodils. Looking forward to sewing with you.

  2. Yay, love the pictures!!! I so wish the weather was going to be better this weekend. I got my seeds today, now I just have to wait for the supplies.
