So This is Spring !

Yes believe it or not this was the beginning of our spring this yr. we are in fact having rain and a chance of flurries as I write this on May 7th ;-) This is life here in MB. We do love it here in our province however we also would like to get our garden dug and seedlings planted . dh installed a chainlink fence in back for our dogs and he had to use the hose to unthaw the ground to get the posts in lol . For now I hope you enjoy some of our pics from our two weeks out caring for gramma's place while she was on holiday .Enjoy !

Several projects took place while indoors and out . such as pillow making .
