HI and welcome to

I’m joining with Suzanne and the Friday favers at  Living To Tell The Story

Here are some bright and cheery moments from my week.

1. A delightful evening with these sweet boys, their parents and friends.

Pasta making is serious business.

That face ~ oh. my. heart.

Someday my prince grandbabies will come.


In the meantime, Roger and I are adopting  – and having such fun!

2. Springtime colours

I found this cheery yellow watering can at VV. Perect for my English Ivy.

Red and yellow tulips

3. Sarah and I are doing a little baking research this week.  In  two weeks, she’s off to YWAM film school in Hawaii (without her mother – what is wrong with that picture?? 🙂

We’re hosting a Spring Cafe fund-raiser event ~ an evening of music and home-baked goodies.

Spring-themed cupcakes will be on the menu. This book is on order from the library and, in the meantime, I’ve been looking up  cupcake decorating tutorials online.

 4. The tension is rising over at A Fuse #8 Production as Betsy Bird counts the final 20 of the top 100 children’s novels. I’m enjoying every minute of it!

Here’s my guess at the top 3.

  • Anne of Green Gables
  • The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe
  • Charlotte’s Web

I’m not sure of the order, but I’m thinking AOGG in first place.

What are your predictions?

5. Just playing with colours. Inspiration found here


Thanks for coming by to visit!

Hope your weekend is filled to overflowing with bright and cheery things

with love,

    Did I mention that our first grandchild is on the way? I probably mentioned it 🙂 Oh, was it you I mentioned to that I’d read The Railway Children? Well, I found it, and it turns out I hadn’t read very much of it at all. So maybe I’ll be more favorably impressed when I have read the whole book! I think your top three choices were pretty good.

    It looks like you had lots of fun this week, I enjoyed your pictures in this post, and yes, homemade pasta IS fun! Trying to stay away from cupcakes and sweets though!

    I loved your bright and cheery post. I agree there is something wrong with Sarah going to Hawaii and you’re not … but wait, you do get to stay on that beautiful Prince Edward’s Island…Love the pictures of the boys, I do have to say they are adorable!Anne of Green Gables ought to be #1, it’s certainly at the top of my list.


  11. I think you need to visit Sarah when she graduates from the film school, n’est-ce pas?


  12. Carolyn says:

    Hi Kathie, those little boys are so cute! Love that cheery watercan. Isn’t this weather amazing??? Have a good weekend, Carolyn

    What sweet little boys.I agree about the top three children’s novels.Love the spring colors!


  15. Wow! What an awesome experience for Sarah! And in Hawaii, eh? Well, personally I’d prefer one Island over the other. =DI hope your guesses at the top three books are correct. I would have no complaints about AofGG and TLTWTW!! (And I don’t mind Charlotte’s Web for all that either!)Have fun with your cupcakes. That’s a great idea!


  16. Oh I just LOVE that tulip picture!! Wow, spring is here with that pic! And the pasta making pictures of so sweet, what a cutie!
