eggs from the coop girls

proof that Spring is here!

a rare moment....anyone sitting with Jack


the scallions are back!
It's been a strange weekend - one of those weekends where Friday felt like Saturday, Saturday felt like Sunday and Sunday just doesn't feel like Sunday.  Do you have those?

We accomplished more purging.  Hooray!!  We're finishing it up today.  Whoever came up with the saying "collect memories not things" was very wise, in my opinion.  Too many things make me crazy lately. 

We received a good amount of rain Saturday which was great for my asparagus and strawberry beds.  I'm patiently waiting for the first sign of asparagus.  I know it will likely be a couple of more weeks, but a girl can hope.  My elderberry bushes are starting to get their first bits of green as are the rhubarb and horseradish.  Next week we aren't supposed to have any frost so another week of above-freezing temps and I'll have seeds in the garden.

We are busy busy busy around here today.

On the menu this week:  Burgers on the Grill with Potato Salad, BBQ Country Pork Ribs with Mac and Cheese and Green Beans, Grilled BBQ Chicken Quarters with Risotto and Salad, Stuffed Peppers {using up the last of the frozen pepper halves}, One Pot Southwest Chicken and Rice, and Sausage with Ravioli and Salad.  I'm also going to try a new recipe for Individual Lemon Cakes.

Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend!

Love your pictures. I'm also waiting for the asparagus. Fresh eggs and asparagus tipped soldiers yummy. Have a good week.

Beautiful photos, as always. Seeing those eggs makes me long for backyard chickens again. Collecting the eggs each day never got old - it was like a daily Easter egg hunt.

Yay for purging! It really does help one's peace of mind to rid the home of unnecessary things.

Your boys look so content.

Menu sounds yummy! Potato salad, huh? It must really feel like spring up there!
