A quick blog before bed..

Here are some photos I've been meaning to post.. one or two of them may also be seen on my photo blog. First, this past week's progress on Brooke's Books Summer House-
Finally moving past the ground floor to the front yard- yea!

Last weekend we had some beautiful weather- Hanna had a friend over so I took David to the park for some quality mom and son time(and to keep him out of the girls' hair.) Some of the trees are starting to bloom in the park-

and of course David got some play time in as well-

The next night was the night of the 'super moon!' Try as I might I cannot get a good night time shot with my Canon- if I set it to night shot it uses flash and doesn't look too great and if I do an 'auto' shot it doesn't look much better.  But here is the moon anyway- if compared to my prior moon shots you can tell it was quite a bit brighter!
I finished a fairly good book the other day- The Death List by Paul Johnston.  I had gotten this book free from a book service and it was pretty good.  Some of it was quite graphic, and the beginning was a little slow going.. it picked up in the middle and then I didn't want to put it down.  From what I've read on goodreads though, the sequel is just as graphic and I didn't care for that much, so I think I will not be reading it.  Now I'm reading Hurricane by Karen Harper, which I thought maybe I had read, but now that I am reading it, realize I haven't.  So far it's very good.  I've always liked Karen Harper's suspense novels.
Well, I must get to bed..thanks for hanging in with me when my posts are few and far between!

Summer House is looking good. Spring is arriving in NC isn't it. Looks like the park was a fun time. Have a great Sunday!

Beautiful stitching! I envy anyone who lives where the trees are already blooming. We're just in the crocus stage here. lol! Might see a forsythia thinking about blooming, but that's it. Sigh.

Summer House is looking great!! And how I love those pictures - the trees blooming. I am so ready for spring and those trees are definitely a sign that it is on it's way.
