Cutie Pie Doings

 We've been sitting in the sunshine (eating chips).
 We went to the bookstore.

 We went to Taco Bell.  (Granny's stomach doesn't welcome Taco Bell but Millie Rose LOVES the chips and cheese!)
 Millie was busy inside and outside.

In Sam and Plum Cake's neighborhood it was warm enough for skirts.  

 And little Miss Aria (birthday girl this month!) is also enjoying skirt weather! Aw!

Plum came shopping with Granny.
 She had a lovely morning outside.

 Sam had a fundraising run at school.  Her class wore capes!  I loved watching her run!  So smooth!

 I have so many books open all over the house.  Oh well.  The book below is so full of wisdom.

 I'm drinking a Brown Betty pot FULL of PG tips.  My friend Lynn from England is the good girl who told me about it.  Now I can find it at our grocery store AND the World Market.
 I found an inexpensive percolator on Amazon and I have had two pots of perfectly perked coffee.  I quit putting cream, milk, or coffee creamer in my coffee so having a tasty mugful is even more important now. 
 Millie found a few pansies growing in the dirt.  Isn't this tiny one pretty? The crab apple trees are blooming and the apple and cherry trees, too.  It's about to be full-on gorgeous around here.  

 Today I am going to begin putting my Rule of Life on a big three-fold board.  It took me a long, long, long time to read enough about creating a Rule of Life to feel good about firming mine up.  It's pretty personal so I'll only share a little as soon as I've made the board all pretty.  I'm going to keep it on my desk so I can look at it all the time.  
I've been knitting, too.  I am almost finished with my alpaca vest.  I'm switching up the neckline.  I hope it works.
Thank you for popping in for a visit.  Happy spring to you!

I would like to be nosey and see your rule of life board, I think I need one.The little pansy is I think a viola, they are so tiny and delicate, a lot of people like them in gardens here. Betty x

It looks like the grandkids are having a great time and I love the blowing bubbles. It's a fun way to pass the afternoon. I did that with my grandkids. What fun. I love your percolator, still looks like new.

Your granddaughters are adorable. The one with the little dimpled chin reminds me of our Emma....who has gone and grown up...she will be 12 on Monday. The times goes much too quickly for me. I too love a good cup of coffee..Blessings to you and Yours. xoxo,Susie

Millie Rose -- and truly, all your granddaughters -- are as pretty as the flowers they love. That pansy looks like a Johnny-Jump-Up; they are always such a sweet surprise when they act true to their name.

Grandkids looking adorable and having fun. Lucky you to be able to see them often. : )
Sure wish spring would come back to my neck of the woods. We got a few inches of snow today.

What a bunch of cutie pies you get to be with. I remember when some of them were born! (time flies!) The tea and coffee looks great. I'm hooked on Yorkshire Gold by Taylors and Harrogate. I can only get it at Amazon, but worth the effort.

Granny Marigold said...

All the trees that bloom are doing just that these days and it makes the world so lovely. Lovely is what those grands are too! Oh the expressions on sweet faces.
I look forward to however much you choose to share of your Rule of Life. I can understand that it's deeply personal though.

Love all the happy family time with grands! I haven't heard of "Rule of Life" so I'm off to figure out what that is all about! I wish you a beautiful Sunday and a wonderful week ahead. LOVE that pansy. So perfect.

Definitely cutie pies. Building memories for them, and having a good time while doing so: YOU!

It looks as though you are having a wonderful time sharing precious moments with your grandchildren. Enjoy them & savour them, dear Pompom.

It always makes my day to stop in for a visit. I think you have been a very busy lady. I love seeing all that you have been doing.
The spring little dresses and having lunch outside is so sweet.
I can wait to see about your rule of life.
I am sure your knitting is wonderful.
I hope you have a very nice Sunday.
