Over The Weekend !

It was a nice and quiet weekend  with lovely sunshine and pleasant temps to all though chilly at a times .  Papa and I just puttered about . Our kids called me for mothers day and we had a nice long chat and they sent me happy mothers day wishes both on the phone and in a Facebook post  so that was nice .  It was a difficult weekend for the family as well as Saturday was my sister Ann’s Birthday and Sunday Yesterday was the day she passed away a year ago  at only 62 so a very emotional weekend to .
On Saturday Papa and I started to paint these little decorative birdie houses that we bought from the dollar out  on the patio table , the painting is done , now we have to stencil  on them as to what we want on them( ie) flowers  , butterfly's and paint them to  they will be all done soon .


 As they were drying Papa went to his work shop to putter about more lol and I took some more photos .


                                 Miggs loves to be with  Papa when he is in his work shop .


                  My first clippings of our Lilacs  this season  MMMM ! They smell wonderful .

                             Mr Rose beak was enjoying his time at the feeder chowing down  .


 As the day and weekend came to an end I decided to take some evening sunset photos as the sun was hiding behind the trees in the back in the west as it slowly sank into the western horizon .


 Not quite what my eyes saw it like  but heck I liked the look of it as it gleams on the leaves and shines through the branches !




                       Then I saw the sun set  light shining on part of  the valley in the east .


 My favorite times of the day this time of year is at sun rise and at sun set , the light is so pretty and gentle as it casts shadows and different colours  across the land .


 Mr and Mrs Cardinal like this time of the evening at sun set  and morning at sun rise to  while they feast as the other birdies are tucked into bed  .
Today the sun is shining as it will be for the week now and the temps are rising to where they should be for this time of year . The gardens are blooming the grass is growing to and Miggs is waiting to go for her walk so I am off to get my day started and hope you all had a lovely weekend and Mothers day yesterday  and a good day today  .
  I had to do this post through blogger template as I use Open Live Writer but it isn't working  properly today  keeps giving the 404 error  so my post set up is different then usual .  Oh well thats the way the cookie crumbles lol !
                                                            
                                                                     Until next time .

You had such a lovely weekend. Today has been wonderful, grosbeak, oriole, hummingbird and all the regular visitors to the feeders. I got the last of the peas planted, got the seed potatoes ready to plant and just relaxed on the deck. Hope you had a great day too.

Sunsets are usually stunning here in Texas if we have a few clouds near the horizon. Love those cardinals!
