Monday Update

Here it is another Monday. Last week was busy busy. We got all our snowmen/winter decorations put away finally. What a job. I love our house when it is all decorated though so it's worth it. Now we have all our Spring decorations out and it looks fresh and ready for a new season to start. Of course our weather sure didn't get the memo. They even had 6 inches of snow just a bit south of us yesterday. Crazy. Now tomorrow we are supposed to watch for severe weather. It's that time of year. Never know what our weather will do.

So we were busy cleaning, organizing, un-decorating, and re-decorating Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday we had our Easter shopping to get done. Friday Mom, Jeremiah, and I had a fun trip to Shipshewana for an Antique show and some goodie shopping.

Saturday we went down to do some more work on our cabin spot...
If you remember the last photo there was so much more brush at the back of our spot. You can see the field behind our campground now. We are doing great getting it more and more ready. We also got another area opened up more that we use as a lane so it is wider for our cabin to come through to get to our spot. But then the rain started again. We did get to celebrate Easter with my dad's side Saturday. So laughs and good food both days of the weekend. Wohoo.

Easter sure crept up on us quick this year. Just didn't feel like it should be Easter already. For our Easter we had just us and had a nice relaxing day. We ate ourselves miserable on turkey, ham, green bean casserole, cheesy potatoes, deviled eggs, cheeses, olives, and a yummy homemade dessert we haven't had in a long time. It was yummy yummy. After that we watched the new Jumanji with The Rock. I was really impressed how they made a new up to date movie and yet paid a lot of respect to the original with Robin Williams. We also watched Justice League. It was really well done too. A wonderful day spent together.

So with all the busy busy last week I still squeezed in two days of stitching on the Ocean in the Bottle piece. Here is where I was last Monday...
Here I am now...
So even in the 2 days I was able to squeeze in some progress at least. This week Jeremiah and me joked about telling everyone we are on Spring Break so we can rest after the work last week. Just a few things to do and hopefully doing a whole lot more of nothing. Which means stitching time should be a lot better this week. Hope everyone reading this has a great week.

  7. I felt the same way about Easter, this year, Katie--it just felt way too early. And it was SO cold; in fact we had two inches of snow the day after! Crazy :)

    Nice progress on both your cabin sight and your stitching!
