Grab a coffee and come on over !


Hello!..glad you stopped by. It has been a very busy couple of weeks over at Greenacre. The garden beds needed tending and the weeds have been waging one serious war. One that I intend to fight to the bitter end...or until I see a snake then I wave the white flag and the weeds get to live until next Spring.
The twins love the outdoors and tasting everything! I thought the mere taste of a piece of wood would deter them from doing it again but no such luck. Rocks, leaves, soil, grass, bugs, flowers and pine cones are all tasty snacks to them. I'm sure a delicacy in certain parts of the world too but 'round here , it's just gross. So I keep them in their stroller as long as I can and buy time with arrowroot cookies, cheerios , toys and pray they fall asleep with the fresh air.  A girl can dream!
Columbine flowers are really great self seeder
I love hummingbirds and make this nectar all Summer long.
We decided to take the girls and drive two and a half hours (one way) to a car swap/show in the pouring rain. FUN FUN FUN! My husband asked Cesina if she preferred to play soccer or go to Barrie and she choose Barrie. The best part was when she moved the lock on the porta potty to unoccupied and some guy opened the door as I was pulling my underwear up. Yep! I am officially a flasher.Can't say I died of embarrassment because after you have a baby and have had a zillion people looking and touching when you are larger than life...somehow....a random bunch of people at a car show don't really matter in the grand scheme of things. It will a funny story I can share with her when she's older. The five hour drive was well worth it as I found a pink Christmas tree for Cesina's room and a concrete statue of Mother Mary for my garden. Something I have been wanting and looking for a couple of years now.
What an amazing find!!!
We made sure to enjoy all the nice weather when it came because it goes from hot to cold and rain in a matter of hours. It has been a very weird start to Summer.
 
Watching Cesina's first soccer game was alot more fun than I thought it would be. I was so proud of her! Running after that ball with determination and the one of the only girls that actually got to kick it a couple of times. Who knew little 5 year boys were so competitive? ...down right fierce!
(Cesina's team won the game )
I hope your day is as beautiful as this flower!

Gotta love a good embarrassing story -- on someone else. :-) Looks like you good some good deals and most of all had a special day with the family. Love families doing things together.

May your day today be filled with joy.

That pink columbine is amazing!! I love my purple one, but now I want to add this one too! Columbine's are becoming one of my favourite flowers. The gardens look great! And the girls are just beautiful, and clearly enjoying their summer.

These are some really great photos!! I use the same recipe for my hummingbird food, too. It's so much cheaper than buying the pre-made stuff at the store!! Have a great summer!! :o)
