Memorial Day Weekend

I could not wait for this weekend. Saturday morning I was up early and spent 4 hours in my yard trying to get a head start for the weekend. I did finish cutting the grass and planted a few things.
We took off at one and headed to Berkley for lunch at Vinsettas Grille. Use to be a car repair shop for years. Very cool place. Food was great and plenty of it.

 My sister would kill me if she knew I posted this picture.
Me and my sweet hubby.

I headed out early in the yard again this morning and did more planting and trimming bushes.
 We had hamburgers on the grill with beans and salad with strawberry shortcake for dessert. Norms sister and  brother in law came  for dinner and we all sat out on the porch to eat. Love sitting out there to eat. We will probably eat breakfast out there in the morning. Pancakes, bacon, oj and coffee.
Love the 3 day weekends.
What are you doing this weekend?
I hope you are enjoying yours.

Baby Sandhill Cranes

Tonight I was out watering flowers and spotted the new family. Two cutest baby cranes between momma and daddy. Corn is planted in this field next to our house this year and is a tasty treat for them. Farmers grumble about it. Aren't they cute. Use your magnifier if you can't see them good enough. It is dry dry dry here. I hope it rains soon. Memorial weekend so have a safe and fun weekend friends. ~Earlene~

Nancy Nemecs Antiques pics to share. Ida Michigan

Yesterday morning me and my sis headed out early to Nancys wonderful show at her home. Enjoy the pics of her barn and gardens. They were beautiful and everything was neat as a pin. Lots of great buys and I will show you what I found. My goodies I think are together at the end of the pictures. Oh and on the way home we stopped at a roadside sale of trees and phlox. A steal at only 5.00 each. The fir tree will go in my front yard. The weather was cold but did not dampen anyones spirits. At least no wind was present like it is today. BRR! It is cold! ~Happy Mothers Day! ~Earlene~

Exciting!!! APP magazine has arrived. The Summer issue with my photoshoot I had last July. Kristine and Jeremy Doss did a great job.

Jerry watching me wondering what in the world am I taking pictures of? " Why not me" So I snapped one. Now I want to change some things around after looking at the pictures. Mostly in the dining room. ~Have a wonderful day today~ ~Hugs~ ~Earlene~

2012 Colorado

I have been looking for a truck like this, 2012 Chevy Colorado.
Nothing fancy...just my own for antiquing and plant shopping.
I checked at one dealership yesterday..not good vibes.
So today I went to a different one and they are looking for me.
I would like to have it for my trip to Carmens on the 18th.
I am trashing my Malibu and want it to last for a long time.
Can't fit furniture in a Malibu.
Keeping my fingers crossed!
