Spirea Bush


I wanted to share with you all this picture of our spirea bush.  I think it is the fullest this year it has been in many years.  So bright and cheerful.  Not much happening around here.  We went with Hubby to work yesterday.  Today we went down to Jessica’s but we forgot to take the camera.  I want to remember it next time.  You all will not believe how much Katie is growing.  She just grins and grins.  I love it.

We have been getting rain almost every evening this week.  Just enough to keep us from working outside.  Oh well, I know rain is really needed.  Everything is really popping out green here, so the rain and the warm temperatures are doing their job.  Our pastor said his peach trees were in full bloom.  I certainly hope they are not too early. 

I guess that’s about all for today.  As I said, not much going on.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Our spirea bush is also in full bloom.  I love spring!

Yesterday, my Grace did not feel well.  She felt worse as the day progressed.  I finally ended up taking her to Urgent Care late yesterday evening.  She has strep throat.  Not good.  We are praying for a speedy recovery and that the rest of us do not get it.

On now to more pleasant things.  We have lots of sunshine today and the forecast is for warmer temperatures.  Yesterday was a mix of rain, snow, and wind.  It was chilly all day.  We are looking forward to warmer temperatures the rest of the week.  Last nights menu was meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans and rolls.  Grace, however, did not eat very much as her throat was hurting.

I plan on only doing half school today.  Sickness and school do not go well together.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

Another sign of spring.  The spirea bush is in full bloom.  It has beautiful, small white flowers on it.  I think Friday when the ladies come I will make a bouquet of spirea and forsythia blooms.  Very cheerful!  School today as usual.  It is getting so hard to do school as usual. We so want to be outside playing and doing outside chores.  The girls playing-me doing outside chores.  Well, we must persevere.  I know it will  be worth it.  Temperature is very nice here today.  About 80 degrees.  I have clothes drying on the line, blowing in the breeze.  I love hanging clothes outside.  They smell so wonderful.  Tonight’s menu will be homemade pizza.  Last summer, we made several jars of pizza sauce from our tomatoes.  We have almost used them all so I guess we will need to make more this summer than we did last summer.   I think it is important for my girls to know how to raise a garden, to harvest the produce and then how to preserve it for later use.  I think in todays fast paced America this is becoming a lost art.  I was blessed to acquire this knowledge from my mother and I want to pass it down. 


It tastes as good as it looks.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
