It cant get any better!

What a great Saturday we had in Wisconsin. It was totally unexpected, at least for me. It started out with a light covering of snow. By mid morning that was melting away and it was getting warm. Ms. Ellie came over and we opened her sandbox. The sand was in great shape from our winter, all that was needed was to remove a few leaves that snuck in!
It was so great outside Baldyman decided it was time to put our screen house out. Here he has the frame up and had begun to string the lights around it.
Here's Ms. Ellie again enjoying playing the kitchen goodies I brought and cleaned up for her.
This kitchen stuff is from when our twins were little girls. Its about 20+ years old. Many of the pieces have been partially chewed up by our dogs thru the years. Its funny when she asks me--Grandma whats wrong with this? I have to tell her--well the dogs ate it!
Here's Baldyman again working on the Screen house. It got so warm we were able to wear shorts, sit in the sun and just enjoy the entire afternoon outside. I have a finished picture of the Screen Room, I'll post that tomorrow. For some reason I was expecting a cooler weekend, so this was a total surprise to me. I hope everyone had a great weekend, its back to work now.

I wanted snow for the whole winter and got so little and then I said...alright lets have nice warm weather and get out there and clean that messed-up yard and now I get cold and even a little snow. Best laid plans.

Have a Marvelous Monday

What a wonderful weekend. Can't believe it snowed in the morning and was warm enough for shorts in the afternoon. Crazy. Hopefully we'll continue to have nice, warm weather as I'm getting kind of used to it. :)
