I can finally say I think Spring has sprung.  Late but it has arrived and we haven’t put a fire on in about 9 days now.

I’ve been buzzing around like I were looking for a favourite flower, from one thing to another.

I was roasting coffee –  then put it aside


 then started on the garden –

backyard pond and waterfall

We have been picking and eating asparagus for two weeks now


I decided that wasn’t much fun so I moved onto putting out the fairy gardens

I placed one at the entrance to the tea room


a Fairy Park


by the pond


another in the bird bath


All together I’ve place 7 fairy gardens about, however don’t wish to bore you with my fun, besides I may need something next week to blog about and I can share the rest.

Oh I almost forget to mention I got the front porch finished


Remember the rustic curtains?


well I carried on with the rustic


found a rooster and put him to roost.


found a corner to finally put my shelf in that I built when in grade seven. Can’t believe my brother hung onto that and drove it all the way to Prince Edward Island to give it back to me, there it hangs with a few little items.


This is my favourite, people ring the bell on the way out of the shop if they liked what they saw.


and this old coffee can sits on the window.  I purchased a few antique rusty old coffee cans but they are a save for later also, lol.

Lets see what else have I been up to…..

Oh ya,


Ana would like to introduce her new baby brodder, she calls him Rory.

 I think he is just so cute and he smells so good.


Grandpa is proud of his new grandson also


shortly after Rory was born Grandpa and I went beachcombing, “again”

And if that’s not enough,


I’ve been on a spinach salad kick lately.

Besides coming down with strep throat I’ve been pretty good

watching my peas and ques and getting busier as the days go on.

How about you? Has your spring sprung? Are you planting any spinach?


take care,

Children grow up with way too much tv today and not a lot of imaginative play.  In fact some don’t know what imaginative play is.  Ask yourself why that is?  I have an answer but first I want to have some fun.  

Grandma and Grandpa take Ana on A Camping Trip

“Take one”

Anastasia is my grand-daughter who has kept me young for the past 4 years.  She wanted Grandpa and I to take her camping in the RV because she thinks she might like that. 

Grandpa and I woke early so we could have coffee and a game of backgammon, we get the board set up and hear, 

“Hi guys, it’s me Ana, I’m awake how was your night I had a good seep”. (trouble with the sl’s)


Imagine never waking up grumpy.

“take two”

Ana: Grandma, you don’t have tv in your RV.

Grandma: Yes I do.

Ana: Where is it I don’t see it.

Grandma: That is because it is very small and we keep it in the cupboard.

Ana: Do you think I can watch it.

Grandma:  Are you allowed to watch tv at home?

Ana: Not when I’m milking cows or eating breakfast.

Grandma: Ok, then you can watch tv, I’ll get it out of the cupboard for you.


Grandma: Remember I said it was small.

Ana: I can’t see it Grandma.

Grandma: Hang on we have a special way of watching RV TV.

Ana: Grandma your silly




Ana: Look Grandma I can see it



Ana watching RV  TV





Ana: Grandma.

Grandma: What is it child?

Ana: Grandma, can you change the channel?


Why Grandma thinks children don’t have enough imaginary play.  Well my guess is everyone including tv does their thinking for them.  We want to be the teachers of children however we don’t set the stage for imaginary play.  Why  did I have so much imaginary play in my day?  Was it because there wasn’t as many toys as there are today to occupy us?  Was it that mom and dad didn’t have the money so we played with cardboard boxes.  Or was it that our parents were smart and set the stage for imaginary play?  Perhaps all the above but Grandma has a word of wisdom and that is teach your children to play, to imagine and at the same time have fun with them.  


The blog post is over and you may continue reading if you like but the following is just so I can look back and read and remember……….   Ana sleeps like a butterfly! knees up in the air and all of a sudden they drop to the sides.  I woke up every 20 minutes to this all night long.  She also grinds her teeth at night, when I asked her about it she said she didn’t have time to sharpen them in the daytime so she does it at night.  She also sleeps with her arms straight up in the air, she drops them only when you are just about to open your eyes so that it is more of a surprise seeing them land on your face.  She does all this in her sleep.  FYI Grandma, This is the first time I climbed a ladder, I’m not allowed to at the farm.




Ana: Ok grandma, I”m down now, what do you want to do next?

And if my children read this, thank you.  Thank you for listening to me when I said, “have your children when you are young.”  I lied about the reason.  It was really because I wanted to be young enough to enjoy them, thanks.
