This Week at the Farmette


We are on spring break this week.  A bit late, as when we return to school we actually only have twenty-six working days left.  




Our week is being filled with odds and ends, but mostly time.  


Time for reading, sleeping, and catching up on all things necessary.  



A softball tournament, in a neighboring city, is on the horizon at the end of the week.  




Cold, rainy weather is being forecast.  



For now though, all is well.  
Bright skies, spring temps, and flowers in bloom.  




"In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours."  

Mark Twain

  4. Sounds like the perfect relaxing week! I love the quote! On Sunday we had Beautiful Sun, 60 degrees and then snow showers all within about 12 hours! Ah Spring! :)

  5. Great Spring shots. Enjoy your weather when you can.
    It's just turned cold here, so that Mark Twain quote is
    very appropriate.
    Hope you have an enjoyable Spring Break.

  9. Beautiful spring pictures! And that quote at the end...it's sure true! The weather has been a roller coaster here this spring, for sure. High's near 80, and lows in the teens (tonight!) Yikes!

  15. The Mark Twain quote sums up the weather perfectly . . .
    And your "spring break" photos treat us beautifully . . .

  17. Back in the city and just saw massive cold heading south just please don't let it come here. I turned the sprinkler system back on and brought lots to plant. New pump for the goldfish pond - it is never-ending. And, I need to clean and price the antiques for the booth and there is no room in the booth...
