After all the hard work of getting the garden established Mr Creative is getting to see some wonderful results! Yep, those are baby Spaghetti squash on the vines! We are really glad to see them as they are one of our favorite squashes to replace a carb heavy food, pasta. Now, I am looking for the first tomatoes LOL
He has also hooked up the old hard drive so that we can bit by bit transfer information that might still be on it like email addresses etc.
Busy weekend here as we got a bunch of yard work done and a little too much sun on the shoulders and neck but I will survive. I am glad to be over my sore throat as I was worried I was getting sick but it was probably just a reaction to all the cooler weather and dampness.

Easter this past year was luckily a nice warm day so that we could eat our dinner outside.
Oldest son D and his family joined us for the meal which we enjoyed in the sunshine of late Sunday afternoon.
D had come early and "hid" plastic filled Easter Eggs which the kids hunted afterwords.
I got to use a new kit ( or new to me) from Echo Park that I purchased at the spring Scrapbook USA Expo. I loved the cheerful colors and cute embellishments. I used the hexagon paper which has become a popular motif in papercrafting and it fits nicely with my other hobby of quilt making LOL

Second page is the Dumbo ride. I wanted to use something different in colors and try making it simple. I used a sketch from Page Maps vol 2 with several tweaks Funny thing is that the ribbon is from a Christmas release by American Crafts. Perfect colors if I do say so myself.
I love to use fresh herbs and have tried several ways to grow it before. I saw this idea of planting in old collendars first on Pintrest and then several other places online. I know that you have to be careful not to bake the roots in the metal containers but the herbs need plenty of sun. I will watch them closely for wilting and water a couple times of day if I need to. I think the sprinklers will water them each night but I still will make sure they are not getting too much heat.It would be great to have this idea work and have lovely fresh herbs this summer.

She still feels like a little doll or stuffie when I hold her but we have been blessed with her getting a little bit bigger and stronger each day!
It's perfect walking weather now but since it is spring I figure it's "just wait, and it will be different"

My new grand daughter was born a bit early...3 weeks... but we are very happy to meet her.
Here she is about 4 hours old with her daddy oldest son D.
She is tiny but able to come home after 3 days. She is in preemie clothes for now but we are sure she will be growing out of them very soon!
