Weekends are for bread, brakes, broccoli

I honestly didn’t take many pictures this weekend.  We were so busy a didn’t even think to take photos.

We started with our oldest helping the Boy Scouts set up for the Community Expo that was held over the weekend.  He and dad got home well after the rest of us were in bed.

Saturday morning we finally made a trip to get groceries…yes, the whole family, three stores, much shopping and food buying!!  We were tired, but happy to have some food in the house again.

Prior to that I spent some time making the best of what we had in the house…flour….



A couple of loaves of white bread and a couple loaves of cinnamon bread.  Yum!






I also had some popcorn and some sugar, so….



Several bowls of candied/caramel popcorn were made and eaten!  Also Yum!



See all that shiny, sticky, yummy goodness!


We also had a wonderful visit with a family that arrived shortly after our major shopping trip.  Lots of great conversation was had and lots of wild kids running around, with an unexpected visit from our oldest and a couple of his friends thrown in the middle of the chaos.  Hence…still no photos.

Sunday was Children’s Choir Sunday again.  Four of the boys shared their voices with our congregation at noon.  Then run home for a bit and off to the next family rosary at another friend’s home.

In the meantime the brakes failed on the van on our way home from the monster shopping trip and those were fixed on Monday. :)

But..I did take photos of a beautiful sign of spring as it has burst forth a week early that expected in our hanging window garden!!



See that itty bitty little seed sprout under my misspelled label?



more little baby broccoli poking their heads out into the sunshine.



this one is a little baby cabbage.



More baby cabbage.  They are twice that big already today!




And in between running, shopping, and visiting, I worked on planning our new adventure in gardening!  Got to get these boys bellies filled somehow, and keep them busy and out of trouble in the meantime.  Yes, they will be gardeners this year!




Hope you were able to enjoy some of the beautiful sunshine this weekend!
