I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. We attended mass as a family, and then came home and Joe and I cooked a large meal for everyone. I'm still stuffed!
We have lots of leftover ham, so my husband is going to make a pea soup with it tonight. Do you like pea soup? It's one of my favorites, but I don't like peas. I have know idea how that works, but it does. Oh and Faye, I made rolls using your bread recipe. They were DELICIOUS! Thank you!
This past week has been a busy one, as you can see from my photos. The nights are still a bit chilly, so rocking in front of a warm fire has become an evening thing for me....and Hollie. LOL!
Our granddaughter, Piper came over on Thursday and stayed until Sunday evening. She loves to play dress up. In the above picture she is wearing her lady bug dress wrong side out, and taking her baby Dora out for a stroll.
Angus finished his food and then fell asleep with his bowl on his head. Not sure how that happened, but I had to get a picture.
I found a really great rustic bread recipe on a friends blog. I am in love with her recipe! I had never cooked bread in my cast iron Dutch oven before. It came out perfectly! Thank you, Rhonda!!
My husband and I bought our youngest son and his girlfriend Redsox tickets for Christmas. They finally came last week. Now they are planning the rest of their trip to Boston. I have never been to a live ballgame before, but I'm thinking it's got to be a lot more interesting than watching it on t.v.
Danielle spent all day Monday with me. We worked on a little something for the baby's room. They are little picture frames that we put coordinating fabric in, and then wrapped them with some ribbon and glued some wooden letters on them. They came out so much better than I could have imagined. I cannot wait to meet our new little granddaughter!
Today I washed a couple loads of laundry and hung them out to dry. The wind has been strong today, so drying didn't take long. I also did some mending. Having a new puppy in the house with sharp little teeth has given me lots of things to mend. He seems to like Piper's little twirly dresses best.
The snow is melting fast, the days are getting longer, and my hands are yearning to work in the garden again. It shouldn't be long now.
Do you have a garden? Is it for vegetables, flowers, or both? We have both, but I love our vegetable garden best.
I'm so glad you stopped by our little red saltbox. I hope you come by again, and maybe bring a friend or two.
I'd love to hear what you've been doing to keep busy.
