Long Weekend and Weeding

This is how it's been looking at
~My Petite Maison~

It surely felt like Spring has sprung

Wild mustard and all!

There's a porch right outside just waiting to watch the
world go by and listen for our neighborhood troubadour~
we've been waiting for this for so long.

We're off for a relaxing l-o-n-g weekend~
our favorite pub (fish 'n chips), antique hunting
(one of my favorite places)

and just plain relaxing in general -
that is after a little bit (lots) of weeding.

Have a wonderful weekend (and happy Leap Year too!)
What are you doing this weekend?

The time to relax is when you don't have time for it

Hi Tracie,

Your porch looks so inviting and your sky amazing. Haven't seen that for awhile here. Sounds like you have great plans for the weekend. Well my husband is flying in tonight and we are taking off tomorrow for an unknown location as of yet, to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary which just happens to be tomorrow. Our daughter is taking our mini schnauzer and we are going to celebrate somewhere, you know spend the night, few antique shops, good restaurants. I will post about it when we get back. You have a fabulous weekend.

Oh Tracie, I have more weeds then I have time...but I find such pleasure ( and therapy) in gardening and getting my hands in the earth. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful area, aren't we... I just love your porch sooooo relaxing. Where did you get the magazine "Artful Blogging" that you have on your last blog? Looks very interesting. Have a fabulous weekend.

Hugs to you...

Hi Cathleen,
Sent you the link, but here's the information if anyone else wants to know. You can also get it locally - I would think Barnes & Noble, Borders or Copperfield's maybe??
