Lovely Weekend!!!

What a great weekend here in Mint Hill!  The weather is just wonderful.  It hit over 71 today.  I had a really wonderful pedicure and then met my hubby for lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse.  Then we went and got John some new glasses.  Then we headed over to the bird store and bought a wren house and a bluebird box.  We came home and then hung them on the pine trees in the backyard.  I hope the birds move in soon!  Here are some photos I took today:

The beautiful blue Carolina sky through the pencil pines in my backyard.  So beautiful!

 Bluebird box we hung on the pine tree today.

Daffodils in the front and side yard.

Tulips coming up in the front garden
Wren house we hung in the backyard.

The owner of the yarn shop I go to dyed these skeins for my.  The one is a lovely lime green and the other is eggplant color.

What a gorgeous day!  I hope tomorrow is beautiful too!  Spring needs to come now!

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!


  1. It sounds like a wonderful day to me. Love your birdhouses and I hope you get some birdies soon. Amazing- I did NOT know you could have yarn dyed like that. Those are gorgeous shades!

  2. Thanks Diana! I have yarn dyed by the Shop Owner all the time. She makes some amazing colors up and they are so nice to knit!

  3. Those are gorgeous colors for your yarn. Pencil pines is certainly an appropriate name for those trees.

  4. Happy weekend to you. We're having some lovely weather in the UK too, blue skies and bright sunshine which is so welcome.

  7. Love your bird houses, Sherri. I think we are all patiently waiting for spring!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
