Sunny Days

What a beautiful Saturday we got to enjoy!  After a breakfast of home made cinnamon rolls the morning was spent outdoors.  Firewood on the deck was restocked.  Branches were collected and hauled to the burn pile and the smaller ones were put in the burn barrel.  We had a pretty good storm a few weeks ago that sure made a mess of things.  More leaves were raked and taken to the compost pile.

The crazy thing is, the entire week has been like this.  I however, have not been able to get out much since this little guy has been sick.  He started running a fever (102 F) on the 17th with a cough and stuffy nose (it may have been the flu, who knows?).  Today he is feeling better and this is the first day he hasn't fallen asleep on the couch at some point in the day.  I can't believe how much homework a second grader has when missing 4 days of school (Monday was observed for MLK ).

Unfortunately we had a memorial service to attend in the afternoon.  I am thankful for a productive morning!

What did you accomplish over the weekend?


  1. Though I love where we live in Northern Minnesota - your sunshine and green grass sure do look attractive about now!! This has been the coldest winter of my memory and though we are staying warm and doing fine, Spring is sounding attractive!

    I hope your son is all better this week!

  2. Wow, that does sound like the flu! Glad he's feeling better! Your sunny weather looks so beautiful and I'm jealous. I've been sick with a sinus infection most of this week, and the cold, dry air is definitely not helping!
