This Moment {Cousins Easter Egg Hunt}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. Joining Amanda again this week!

{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}

I'm enjoying the blog Like Mother, Like Daughter and this is one of their weekly features: Pretty Happy Funny Real. So I thought I'd give it a try this week!!

Our (I think) azalea bush in the side yard is finally in bloom!

We got a new grill for Easter and this past Tuesday evening was GORGEOUS so we had hamburgers on the grill!

My funny little girl needed to put on BOTH pairs of sunglasses!

Last night's dinner dishes & this morning's breakfast dishes still out at 1pm. I did wash them before writing on the blog though!

Yarn Along!

I am so happy to be back writing along with all the other wonderful ladies at Ginny's Yarn Along! I've missed both sharing and reading what everyone is knitting and reading.
This is the knitting I've done for the past two weeks or so. It's not a lot and each washcloth took about a day. But I also worked on many sewing projects of which I'm kicking myself for not photographing before giving away!

I believe in my last yarn along post I wrote about the Shalom cardigan I was making. Sad to say I finished it except for the sleeves but it just came out way too big. I wasn't all the unhappy about having to frog it all back. I was thinking about starting over until I realized I wasn't too happy with the yarn choice for it. So instead I have plans to make my daughter a sweater from it and a few hats.

I haven't really been reading too much. My Lenten reading consisted mostly of my Magnificat. I also read a little bit in a few Charlotte Mason "how to" kind of books. But I've mainly been focusing on my crafting lately.

Catch up!

Well now I didn't mean to be gone for over a month! We've had exciting changes around here which meant we tried to spend as much time together as we could before my husband began his new job. And then we all got sick about 2 weeks before Easter, one right after the other, and then with Easter preparations...well I needed to let some things go and it had to be the blog.

But I'm back and ready to go!! The weather has changed and spring has FINALLY sprung thankfully! I've been sewing & knitting like crazy but unfortunately have hardly any pictures to show for it and it was all for Easter gifts soooo you'll just have to believe me that's I've been busy!

I'll be back tomorrow with the Yarn Along. I can't wait to join that again! I'll leave you with a few is "our" bunny that lives in our backyard. He's so cute & my 1 year old loves to stand at the window shouting "bun bun" to him! The other is a picture of the tables all set for Easter Dinner. And the first is our daughter searching for Easter Eggs!
