Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

It's almost May! Spring is in the air. The birds have been chirping and I saw a mother duck with these tiny babies when I went walking. They were so cute. I love how nature just knows. They followed her all in a row to the water. I wish I had my phone with me, but of course I didn't. How spring is in the air were you are.

You're The Star - Extra Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Extra Feature Week

It's a new week and I am so glad you stopped by. Only two days left in April and then it is May. My sister lives in Rochester, NY and she said they had snow flurries on Saturday. That is back, but my cousin lives in Cheyenne, WY and they were expecting 10 inches on Friday thru Saturday. What's with the snow? Let's hope the spring weather is on it's way, soon!

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Sunday! Hope you are having a great day. I have been in a spring mode since are weather has been so delightful. So I picked a few spring type posts and some things for Mother's day which is coming up soon. 

I am still packing. Yikes, I think things are beginning to multiply. Just when I think I got things under control, more stuff pops up. We have been taking a load every weekend. So far, it has been barn things, extra stuff and garage stuff. Not looking forward to inside furniture. Taking 2 bedrooms and some living room things this weekend. May is going to be busy.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

Can you believe that this is the last Sunday on April. In a few days it will be May. Warmer weather and lots of lovely flowers. I was watching the Cherry Blossom Festival on TV. I must admit that the festivities were pale in comparison to the gorgeous cherry blossoms. Summer always seems to be just around the corner when I see the cherry blossoms. Aren't they just beautiful?

Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

Happy Thursday! I almost didn't get the party ready. I made a mistake of leaving it until Wednesday night and while that seemed OK, I forgot that we were packing up the trailer with furniture because my husband is taking a load on Thursday to the house. I have decided that I am never moving again and if I do, I am leaving everything in the house but some clothes. lol! 

My arms are so tired I could hardly type. The worst part is we will be doing this for the next 4 weekends. Yikes, we should have had someone move us. I keep throwing stuff away so I don't have to pack it. lol! This move my kill me, it certainly keeps me from eating! There has to be a silver lining, right?

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Hope you had a lovely Easter. A new week has started and warm weather has bought so many new flowers. I love it when the flowers start to bloom. My roses have been blooming like crazy and the lemon and key lime trees have tons of blossoms on them. The Jasmine is so fragrant that it draws me to it all day. What flowers do you have blooming?

Blackberry Streusel Nut Coffee Cake

Blackberry Streusel Nut Coffee Cake 

There is just something about coffee cake in the morning, don't you agree? I have made this coffee cake many times but have always made it with blueberries. You can find that recipe here.

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Easter everyone. I hope your Sunday was lovely. We actually celebrated Easter on Saturday, since we would be traveling today. We had a lovely dinner with the family and then played cards and ate pie. It doesn't get any better than that. We needed a little down time.  I hope your upcoming week is wonderful!

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

Happy Easter to everyone. Hope you have a lovely Sunday and that you are able to enjoy some time with family and friends. I remember when the kids were little I would hide eggs and their Easter baskets and then make them follow a scavenger hunt for their baskets. Each clue would lead to another place until they found them. Once I hid them up a tree. I think I drove them crazy. I thought it was fun! lol! Have you ever done something like that.

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

Happy Thursday! I am so glad you stopped by. With Easter only a few days away, some of you maybe traveling. If so, please be safe.  We have traveled to our other house where we will have Easter with my daughter and in-laws. We also brought a trailer with all of the stuff that I brought down from the attic. Basically, it is going in the attic at the new house. I was able to sort most of it, but the rest will just have to wait until later.

Asian Pork Chops

Easy Asian Pork Chops

My husband loves pork chops but I am not a huge fan. They are OK, but they always seem to be dry. So when I saw this recipe, I thought I would like it. I thought hubby had bought pork chops but they were country style ribs. You have to work with what you have, right?

I mixed up the marinade and put them in the fridge. I had everything except for the red chile so I added some chile sauce instead. They were so yummy.


Over The Mon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

As the sale of our house moves forward, we decided to get down all of the items from the attic and take to our other house this week. On one side of the attic are all of my holiday decorations, on the other side were items from our house up north that was put there 16 years ago. Needless to say, we had no idea what we had. Yikes, that is crazy. Now I need to go through that stuff and see what to keep and what to sell or get rid of. Nothing like selling your house to clean it out!!

Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

Just an update on the selling of our house. We had the inspection on Tuesday and nothing major to worry about. Still waiting for the appraisal. I am relaxing some but would like to get it all over so I can move forward. Still having to keep the house perfect with three dogs, is a little tough. They aren't dirty but I see paw marks everywhere and lots of dust bunnies.  Enough about me, hope your week was good.

Spring has been blooming here in southern Florida, although we never really have winter. The birds are mating and I have seen some baby ducks. They are a little early. Are you having spring like weather?

You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Creative Feature Week!

I know that spring came several weeks ago, but the weather has been so spring like here. It is warm but the breeze is lovely. We spent the day with friends at their home on the lake. It was so relaxing and the fish were biting. After the craziness of listing our home, it was nice to be able to relax. This week is the inspection and appraisal and then I guess the craziness will start again as we prepare to move. For now, I am not thinking about that, just the lovely day. Hope your weekend was awesome! Have a great week!

10 Minute Peep Centerpiece

10 Minute Peep Centerpiece!

With Easter right around the corner, I needed to get some Easter Decor ready.  Most of my decorations have been packed so I needed to make something for the table that was cute but inexpensive. 

This centerpiece only took about 10 minutes to complete and you can eat it.  My kind of project.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

April showers usually bring May flowers, but storms across the southern part of the States is causing high winds, rain and hail. Not to mention the storm that will hit the East coast and will be moving up to Canada, with high winds and rain. I hope it brings the flowers and not destroy them. What crazy weather. I hope you are safe if you are in those areas. 

In the meantime, lets enjoy checking out all of the amazing posts and features from last week.

You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Happy April 1st. I was going to play an April fools joke on you but decided not to and I really could not think of any joke to play. Can you believe that it is April? Another month gone by and a new one begins. Of course the promise of warmer weather, spring flowers and planting a garden (maybe).

I love seeing all of the spring and Easter posts that are being shared. It just puts a smile on my face. What about you?
