Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

Busy weekend and beyond.


We had a lively Easter weekend β€” a total of 8 were here; our kids + friend, 4 of 6 grandkids and one of the girls’ friends joined us for dinner. We had a blast, but not many pictures got taken. It also hit nearly on my birthday, so I got flowers, cards and other goodies. The trick with flowers is keeping Amber from munching on them πŸ˜‰cards

And a little more spring …




Love the little fern next to the quartz rock here.
