Everyone slept in - except me. LOL I enjoyed an early morning walk around the garden, woke up the animals, and placed a couple birdhouses around the yard...

The nerve! These pests manifested. I am researching the best organic way to deal with them, for now I'm collecting them and feeding them to the chickens.
This was a mother's day present from CoRielle. Benny said when I was sad I could stick my finger in the hole and it would make me happy. It's magic. It does. I didn't want to put it outside, but I realized I WANT some fun around the yard....and in the garden....it makes me smile outside now.
The volunteer snap dragons are everywhere. I wish we had some volunteer fireweed, I'm researching how to get some on our place.

They seem to blame ME for the rain.
EVERYONE loves Kale - I spoil Dash just a tad bit.
Grandpa woke up a couple of hours before anyone else. I used a lot of our garden produce in his "standard" breakfast...he didn't comment on the produce, but he DID eat it all. Score - snuck in produce.
I baked a carrot cake...well...I made an 8 inch pan of carrot cake and 12 carrot cake muffins/cupcakes. I didn't frost the cupcakes and they are sugar free so I think we can count them as muffins. Dad loves carrot cake and my hope was something he'd think was full of sugar - that WASN'T. They were yummy. Stacia used the layer cake to make sugar-free cake pops. She had trouble getting the sugar free chocolate to melt to coat them and gave up on that to try another day. 3 of the muffins are gone, I saved 4 for tomorrow and put 5 in the freezer.
It was an odd day with no one popping in. It was a rainy day - the perfectly delicious sort of day for a down day. Michael worked on a sermon. The boys went out to work. I did a boatload of laundry and baked, Stacia worked on a sewing project, and Allie worked on a writing project.
