Where Did The Weekend Go . . .


grandson jordon
fourteen



city meet on friday
the winds blew unbelievably
i was wishing for a hoodie to wear

 
jordon flew like the wind
against team players almost twice his size
 

 victory escaped this round
more meets monday and wednesday this week
 
 
five hour city meet seemed to take forever
especially when jordon runs first and last
pole vault was a cancelled event


garden clean up
lovely hellebore with color



three beds of hellebore
just beginning to come to life

 
white hellebore
such a pretty flower
 
  
daffodil
 self starter


maybe a flower will pop up here
with our seventy degree predicted weather this week


when the color isn't there
go for the green


off to the allegan antique market today
 

barbie and i spent the day
wandering through the
thousands of items
 

 
english valley friend penny
is looking for one of these


 
sorry, i forgot to look at prices
 

 
fiesta pieces

 
i liked the pails until i noticed
they were without bottoms

 
old cookie cutters
just now noticed the cribbage board
 

 
someone i know is making
something with clip boards
 

 
tulips would have looked pretty
i was tempted
bought another small
white hull pitcher instead
 
fun filled weekend
what a wonderful world
believe it to be so
for it to be true

I agree. The weekend just flew by. Your grandson is a cutie. I kept my eyes open for you at Allegan. We should have exchanged cell phone numbers.

I love hellebores. My blooms are fading, but underneath I have hundreds of baby plants. I can't wait to see if they mature. Keeping my fingers crossed Jordan does well this week.

Oh my gosh how very tempting all of those items look...lovely.

Good think I don't live near there, or I would have to load up the truck.

That antique market sure looked fun! Love those cute clip boards. I've only seen pictures of those hellebores, must not be hardy enough for around here? Love your grandson's big smile...better luck next meet, Jordon!
