Weekend reading

Well, here she is again, our Grace. The lady who bred her is sending photos so we stay connected and up-to-date with her progress. How can you not love that face?  And her paws! I love her paws. Okay, I'll stop now.  :- )  

I've been fairly busy this past week with Jamie, Hanno's birthday and getting ready for Gracie. The weather here is great at the moment. It's neither hot nor cold and the afternoons are the best they've been all year. This perfect time will be over in a flash though because after the equinox, the days will get longer, the mildness of the weather will change to constant warmth and, once again, the seasons will change.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends.  I'll see you next week.

  1. Hi Rhonda,

    Grace is adorable! It´s impossible to resist, I understand you :-)
    Thank you for the weekend readings, they are always interesting. I´ve been sewing bowl covers, following the tutorial shared by you some weeks ago. They are all handsewn and for sure not looking perfect, but I'm happy with the result!

    Wish you a wonderful weekend


  2. This perfect time will be over in a flash and my day long stints in the garden on the weekends will be coming to an end soon. Gracie looks so adorable. Thanks Rhonda for the Friday links.

  3. What a sweet, sweet bundle she is - I bet you can hardly wait.

  4. You both must be counting the sleeps for Grace's arrival Rhonda. I think with her gorgeous face she will be able to get away with a lot.

    Thanks for you wonderful links once again. Great ideas under the food hacks link. I will try adding bicarb to my boiled eggs next time I make scotch eggs as they're so hard to peel when only cooked for a short time. Also love the idea of 60 second pasta - will be using that one.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. Gracie is absolutely gorgeous

  6. It's hearing about your day to day life events that I so enjoy...a new puppy with all of the love and work to come sounds exciting!!! Gracie is a cutie.

  7. I'm going to have to try some of those food hacks, thank you for sharing!

  8. Hi
    How lovely to see grace already on your blog. I'm so glad she is going to such loving parents and wonderful home.
    She gorgeous and I know you'll love her.

    1. Hi Alannah. Yes, she's here already and will be here for years to come. :- ) Thanks you for raising such a lovely puppy.

  9. So glad to see that face, and to see how much she has changed since the last picture. Thanks for the links - always enjoy reading your finds. Have a good weekend all! Beth in MN

  10. Keep the pictures of that sweet Grace coming!

    The article on straws was very eye opening. We do have stainless steel ones at home but contribute way too many to the landfill when we are traveling, etc. We are surely rethinking that one.

  11. I am so excited about your new "baby!" She is adorable and one lucky little puppy coming to live at your home. Blessings to you and Hanno. Carolyn in Florida

  12. Love those paws!! If i knew how to send a picture I would share one of my favouite paws. They are attached to my cat who is part Maine Coon so he is a big boy. Has feet to match his size!!

  13. Awww ... Grace is absolutely adorable :-)

  14. Well obviously I can never be around Grace because the cuteness factor is too overwhelming. And I could not trust myself not to kidnap her. She is a beauty.

    The story on the bees was incredible. What truly amazing creatures. I am very frightened about how the Zika virus is attacking and killing bees. It is carried and spread by mosquitoes but it kills bees - several billion already. This could be catastrophic for the planet.


    1. Lovely to see you here, Sunnymidnight. Bees seem to be a key factor in so many things. Yes, that story was incredible and goes to show the power of the hive.
