Gathering the Moments.......April

April is always a busy month for us!
We've LOTS of birthdays!

Dear Chickie turned 22 on the 29th.  The two of us went out for breakfast and she requested a special dinner be made in her honor.  (Steak, sweet potato fries, spinach salad)
Oh, and we can't forget the ice cream cake I made for her!

I made danishes.  This is homemade phyllo dough, people!
It is a long and involved process, but basically cookbook and highly satisfying!
Sometime, I'll share.

Mister celebrated a birthday too!
Happiest man I've ever met.
Had a multitude of other family birthdays, as well.

We started dining with more regularity on the sun porch, now that the weather is warming.

I started digging and working the community garden plot.  Peas, carrots, and beans coming along.  The plot is 25'x50' and you sure can't beat the exercise you get by tilling the whole thing by hand!

Thank you, Cheryl (thinkingabouthome.blogspot.com) for hosting such a great party each month!!!

April Note Card Party........Sunshine!!

Joining Vee for the monthly Note Card Party.

Sunshine lifts the spirits!  I am anticipating the lush foliage of spring.

Yellow is the ultimate sunny color.  My favorite color, too.
Purple and yellow sing to me of Spring.

Every year I take out my (yellow!) teacup planter and set it on the railing.  Sweet woodruff looks lovely, as do pansies in this planter.

Dappled sunshine through the trees always fills my heart with joy!

Yes, we still have the April showers to go through, but they do yield the splendor of May and June....and July.....

But....The birds are singing!  The worms in my garden are growing!  The seeds will soon be planted!

Looking forward to sunshine and more beauty!

Whites In The Kitchen

I found some beautiful whites a few weeks ago.
Not all practical....at least not the fridge.....but I sure like looking at them!

Classic lines.

Simple and old fashioned.


 This freestanding cabinet in my own kitchen never fails to delight.

And here's the rest of the kitchen.
Love working in here!

"They" are calling for sunshine starting tomorrow.  That's very different from the weather report this am.  Hopefully the newest report will stick!

Have a blessed week...and I hope it's filled with sunshine.

Linking up with Becky for Blissful Whites Wednesday!  (http://www.timewashed.com/2014/04/blissful-whites-wednesday.html)
