The muddy pigpen...my these pigs are getting huge!!
Well bucket
Prim watering can

I think spring is here! Good morning everyone :) It's a beautiful day today, a tad windy but the temp is very agreeable. It's sunny out but it looks like the clouds are rolling in. I was so looking forward to hanging my laundry out today, oh how they smell so fresh and clean after hanging on the clothes line....but it's too windy and I am sure the clothes would be on the ground in no time and than would need to be rewashed :P Oh well, the kids are home on March break so they helped to yard cleanup, there was tons of garbage that had blown around over the winter . We got one garden raked out part of the yard raked, we have a huge yard, lol so we will do it in stages. The kids are now having a picnic on the livingroom floor, away from the bugs....yep the flies are out like crazy, and the ladybugs, haha.
Well, Sunday I got to go to the auction, I got a free pass from my son Rhys who asked me if I should be going, lol, he knows the routine of auctions on Sunday's. I think he wanted me out of the house so he could watch the race! I had the alarm clock all set, including the daylight savings time, and yet somehow I ended up sleeping in :( Anyhow, I asked my daughter Brynn if she wanted to go and she did so off we went. It was really busy, I think the nice weather brought everyone out of hibernation! And it was lonnngggg...yawn, the things we wanted were of course near the end. I did get a few things, a prim watering can, an old wooden well bucket, a wooden magazine basket (for me to repaint !) and a big box of Bobbsey Twin books and horses novels for Brynn to read. So we only spent $30, we did well! We came home in time for our first bbq dinner of the year, seasoned pork roast done on the bbq, steaks, mashed potatoes, macaroni an coleslaw salads, corn, mixed veggies, and of course cake and ice cream because it was grandpa's birthday! It was a lovely weekend all in all :)

Well, I am going to go take some pics of my goodies so I can show you all,
Be back soon!
Have a splendid day everyone!!

hugs, Trish
