Coming to Life...

As I've posted before, I love springtime - it's so hopeful.

Last week I had just come home from work and was about to walk down to the pond to feed the fish, when I noticed a goose family! We haven't seen a nest nearby, and it was only a one day visit, but aren't those five fluffy goslings cute?

And then, we noticed the thousands of tadpoles along the edge of the pond. Here's just a small portion of them:
Cosmo likes spring, too. Of course, he's a little disappointed that the hydrangea isn't blooming yet - it matches one of his eyes.
Over the long weekend, Oldtimer gave the deck a good cleaning, and all the wood is now nice and fresh and ready for sealer. What did we ever do before we had a power washer? The back of the house looks so fresh and clean, I can't wait to get it all put back together.

I spent the long weekend doing housework, ordering art supplies, watching my newly-purchased EPB video, and ordering some MORE art supplies. I finished my own contribution to the fabric cone swap, wrapped and labeled all the soaps & lotions I'm providing as bridal shower favors, played Mario Kart on the Wii, and got ready for this week's visit from my daughter and granddaughter. Thank heavens for long weekends!

Gorgeous post Sue! What a neat view, I'd totally enjoy a visit there, soaking up the sun alongside you & the feathered nesters at our feet.

Isn't our button incredible! Sandy did a great job creating it. I just made the official post to link it to. Stop in when you have the chance.

Happy day to you, Monica :)

p.s. the White Tea soap is my favorite! Thanks again for the gift you sent me, I'm still using all the lotions & goodies. You're the best!
