Happy Mothers Day Mom…

We had an exciting weekend. I took my mom yesterday to the farmers markets in the morning and before lunch surprised her by taking her to a Celtic festival where we ate and saw a lot of neat things. After the festival we took her to a seafood restaurant for dinner, as she loves seafood. I was hoping to make it a special one day early mother’s day as she had to travel home today after church. She seemed to really enjoy what I had found for us to do and my step-father was a good sport enjoying these things with us.

In years past I haven’t had time to plan anything really good for mothers day or there hasn’t been anything good going on… so it was nice to be able to plan a nice day for her 🙂 Happy mothers day to all the Moms out there and a very special Happy Mothers Day to my MOM 🙂

The weather man says this rain is supposed to break tomorrow… thank goodness… it is WET here. The chickens have been kept in their run until this afternoon when it went from torrential down pour to light sprinkles. They are happy to be out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chase has a vet appointment today to get him a booster on his rabies since he went after that fox. Right now he and Baxter are bugging me to play with them so I best get to that.

Soggy Sunday after Sunny Saturday…

It started raining shortly after we got done at the Flower and Garden festival my Mom and I went to yesterday. It was so sunny and beautiful the entire time we were at the show and I had to sing a little praise to God for holding off the rain till after we got to see the whole festival. I got so many good shots I want to make a slide show for you to watch… but I have to figure this out first on my new computer, then figure out how to post it. My husband and I have been sharing his computer for a while and finally I have saved enough for one of my own 🙂 (Big smile, I will post a photo of it once my new lid for it comes in).

Anyways back to the garden show. There were so many cool plants, flowers, and crafts there. I have never been to a garden show like this and my Mom and I want to make this a tradition. So here are a few of my favorites for you to enjoy especially if you are having a rainy day like me (heavy on the rain).

I saw this on the way into the show in someones yard... I thought it was pretty. I think it is an Allium Onion Flower.

 

A tree waterfall

The castle door

A glass flower... this guy made them out of old bowls and plates, etc.

Rows of flowers, vegetables, and herbs to buy 🙂

My motto for the next few days...

Festival Day… if it doesn’t rain

Today the sun is trying hard to stay out from behind the clouds…

The chickens are enjoying some grub in and out of the coop while they take turns laying.

They use to all lay in on of the first boxes we built, but now only one or two lay there, and the others lay in the new back box we built in their new attached house. Chickens are funny.

The pups have been playing most of the morning, but seem to be taking a rest currently, watching over their chickens like good flock guards.

I am hopefully off soon to a Flower and Garden Festival in our area with my mom. I am waiting for her to get here so we can go and try to beat the rain that looks like it wants to come. The weather channel did say rain today. I think I will pray for it to hold off untill we get done. *Fingers Crossed *

Any of you have any festival plans for this weekend or anything fun planed? I hope and will say an extra prayer for the rain holds off in your area too if you are supposed to have some, till you get done with your day. (If you need some rain and are hoping for it I will send ours your way).
