Or, at least it's trying to be.
I loaned my chalkboard out for a wedding recently and got it back with this sweet flag banner attached - which is perfect for summer.
Just a post of 'this and that' today and this may be it for the week. We'll see. How many of you remember your parents saying that phrase or maybe you said it to your own kids. :) It usually meant 'no'. But....we'll see.....what the rest of the week brings.
I am starting to feel springy though as the weather has improved a bit and we've had some sunshine and a couple of warmer days.
Blue skies and lots of jets flying overhead.
We had a beautiful weekend, especially on Sunday when the winds died down and shifted to the southwest from the northeast for the day and the temperature got up to 20C.
The Tree Swallows came back on the weekend and started checking out the Bluebird house in the backyard. We've had swallows nesting in it the past 2 summers and I guess they are planning on moving in again soon. No action today though.
We had our barbecue on Sunday and the weather was perfect. Shirt sleeves, sunglasses and a cap. Our son, Mark, did the honours.
Our daughter-in-law, Jenn, reflecting on the beauty of the day.
The kitchen window. I love the colours in that olive tin.
I changed the hutch today. :) Do you see the 'artwork' on the middle shelf in behind the dishes? They are by our grandsons. The colours match the dishes so I thought I'd display them there.
Do you see the green?? It's starting. We do need some rain though. It's been windy and dry for a week or more and now there is a ban on open fires for the whole province. We have a huge pile of brush and wood to burn out back but can't until we get some rain then a nice calm day.
The next 2 days will be warm at 20C (70F) but the weekend will see a cool down and next week it will be below seasonal in temperature which is disappointing.
I got a bit artsy today and painted this for the dining room wall. It looks darker than it really is but it's my favourite colours of aqua and limey green. I had fun but I don't expect I'll be famous. Cheap canvas and craft paint. It isn't framed....I just added this one in Picasa.
I'll end with this artwork by the Master artist this morning.
Yes, I was up at 6:30 to catch this sunrise. Note how it has moved across the sky since January when it used to rise to the far right. By June 21 it will rise even more to the left and I'll probably sleep right through it as it will be a lot earlier!
Well, that's my post for today and maybe the week. I'm glad you stopped by and hope you are having a great week. Enjoy the lovely weather my friends.
