It’s Been A Wonderful Easter Weekend


This weekend which is our Easter long weekend has been wonderful . Papa bought me a lovely Easter basket of flowers Thursday  .


The kids popped down  Thursday evening and stayed over night till late Friday evening and we celebrated Easter and our eldest sons Birthday that was on Tuesday . The weather has been glorious  , sunny and warm with temps reaching 24C or 75F and even the breezes have been warm . We had a lovely day all of us out side and the boys helped Papa do a few chores .


Papa and our eldest David filling the roller so David can roll the lawn whilst Papa does the trimming . Our youngest son James took most of these photos with my smartphone for me lol !


  Miggs didn't know who to keep an eye on as there were a few more peoples about and she loves it when the kids come down  lol !


All filled and ready to roll . The person on the right of the photo is David's partner Cindee  a nice young lady she is  . She is like I am loves to take photos and be behind the lens but doesn't like to be in front of the lens lol !


                                                             Except when James quietly takes a photo of me with David lol !


Whilst David was rolling the lawn James went up on our patio roof to count rows of shingles for Papa as we need to replace all the shingles on it in a few weeks .


Then after James was done and Papa had things figured out as to what he needed , he cut the grass as the rest of us puttered .

Then it was time for supper of lasagna , with a loaf of Italian bread and garden salad and for desert cake and ice cream . YUMMY !



Then a nice cuppa tea after all that supper and desert a chat and a laugh or two then it was time for them to go back home as David and James had to go back to work for Saturday . The good news is David's partner Cindee has a new car and now they will be able to come down a lot more often and David has a newer truck to and James well he is working on getting a vehicle but he and David and Cindee chum around so all will come down together anyways lol ! It was lovely to have them all down .

Now it is just Papa , Miggs , grumpy old cat Harley and I again and more nice weather , so we have been enjoying  it outside as much as we can that's for sure .  All is growing and blooming in the gardens like mad now  , and I have seen lots of Painted lady butterfly's , Cabbage moths and a few others fluttering about .  Hope you all had a good Easter long weekend and your weather was great as well .

                                                                             Until next time .

It sounds like a lovely visit with family. Weather actually feels warm today, just the brief little shower niw and then, perhaps heavier this afternoon. Enjoy the remainder of the weekend.

The roller- that brings up memories. My dad got one of those for towing behind the lawn tractor.
