April 16th 2018

  

Isn't this a fine kettle of fish!!!!!  April 16th and it is cold and snowy!  I covered my strawberries last night and they will be covered for a couple more nights!



My poor Morning Glory seeds that I started.  Reaching for light!  The tomatoes I posted last week are doing fine as I move them from window to window but the yard long beans not doing as well.  They need more light and can't move them very easily as I planted them in a larger pot.  Hopefully spring will decide to come and stay soon!



Made up a batch of barbecue chicken.  Like to have easy things made ahead to warm.



And another batch of gluten free pancakes for myself!



Sweet Great Granddaughter Nora has a birthday this week.  I bought this doll and made up a little doll blanket.  My Mom sewed flannel quilt squares together and I have kept them all this time.  So used some for the top of the blanket.  I guess you could say the top was made by Nora's Great-great Grandma McKee!



Just waiting to be wrapped!



Another visit from Nora!  I am glad that we live close enough that we can be a part of her life.  Also thankful our daughter takes time to bring her over often!  We are blessed!




Playing peek-a-boo under our new glider that goes outside.  What a job putting it together but "wonderful gardener" got it done!  Of course I helped!  Hehe



Much easier for Nora then me!  Stay warm and have a great week!  Thank you if you leave a comment to let me know you visited.

Can little Nora really be a year old already?? She sure is sweet.
The weather is anything but sweet. It's colder than normal here too and rains every day. I think I'm going to stop sowing seeds at least not until much later than I'm now doing. As you say, the little plants reach for the light and get so lanky.
Have a good week anyway!

Little Nora is so sweet Nancy! That is a delightful gift you have put together for her. I am so sorry to read you are still getting snow ... hopefully spring will be not too far away for you! Have a great week Nancy.

Snow in April just does not seem right!

Rain said...

Oooh I'm craving pancakes now!!! I hope your strawberries will be okay, it's too cold isn't it?

Yes mam, this weather is crazy. Snowed all day yesterday - though none stuck. Below freezing at night. I am not even going to think about planting till closer to the end of May.

Baby doll is surely wrapped in love! that is too cool about being from great grandma as well.

Hi Granny Marigold, Thanks! I know! That year really went by fast! It is discouraging and a real challenge for most everyone this year with the weather. Hoping it gets back to normal soon. Have a good rest of week! Nancy

Hi Julie, Thank you! I enjoy making home made things for Nora. I am glad that I saved my Mom's flannel squares that she sewed together to use. Still hoping for the weather to get back to normal. Enjoy the rest of the week. Nancy

Hi Rain, Yes, it is just too cold to suit me! My strawberries were okay last night and will cover them the next three nights probably. Come on over and have a pancake! Thanks for commenting! Nancy

Hi Cheryl, I am glad that I had saved my Mom's flannel quilt squares she sewed together. That would be her great-great grandmother. Hoping our weather gets back to normal soon! Stay warm. Nancy

How fun to be playing with that sweet little baby. I know the baby and blanket will be treasured.
So sorry about the snow. It’s pretty cold here too but no snow for awhile now.
Blessings,

Hi Betsy, We look forward to our visits from Nora! I guess most of the country is frustrated with the weather this year so we are not along. Have a good rest of the week and thanks for commenting. Nancy

Oh how sweet!Love the doll and the blanket. What a blessing it is to have Nora close by so that you can enjoy her. We are blessed too to have our grands close by. The weather my way has been crazy this season. One day it's cold, one day warm, one day lots of rain and one day windy. Mercy. I hope you have a great day dear lady. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
