Mowing The Lawn!

Today was a beautiful day! The sun was shining (even if only for a day) and it was fairly mild. It was a nice break from all the rain we have been having. So, it was just too hard for me to stay inside!

Out here we have a certain field grass that grows profusely in the late winter/early spring. By summer it dies off. Well, right now it is growing and fast! So, I decided it was time to mow. I hopped on to the riding mower and mowed for two hours. I actually enjoy it. I love being outside in the fresh air. It gives me time to just think and I even talk to God while I am maneuvering around the bushes and other obstacles.

I also noticed that our ice plants are budded and one was even blooming. Yes, it was a beautiful day! Thank you Lord!

Spring Fever!

This is what I woke up to on my birthday. It was a rainy day then. But today, the day after, we have blue skies, so I snapped a few pictures! I love this time of year when the flowers begin to awaken and start to appear!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Today was my mom's 81st birthday. Happy Birthday Mom! We had a nice phone chat this morning. She and my dad got out and took their 3 day a week 2 1/2 mile walk.

We gave her some pretty spring tops and cookies.
I made her a "hoop" decoration for their porch. And, I knitted her a shawl for those chilly New England evenings.She loved them all!
