What a busy fun week or so leading up to
Daughter and I got potatoes planted
We had so much rain that it
made for some good puddle play.
Daughter looked like an angel at church. Note the green Easter frog.
Most people have an Easter bunny, we have an Easter Frog.
Mommy made a wonderful Easter spread for the family.
Sherlock and I went on a mushroom hunt after we discovered some the day before.
We also found some time to play 'stick in the creek'.
Nephew carved up a wonderful Easter feast.
What a great week.

Saint Francis river and Fredericktown Mo.
for our ACA Instructor Recert.
I camped out at Silver mines and the next morning
went into Fredericktown for breakfast. Caught up
with the people at A&M during breakfast and all their tales about the tornado a few years ago.
The restaurant owner also owns a beauty shop which she lost to the tornado, but has since had it and her home rebuilt.
They have also preserved an old cabin or two in town. . . .
Some of the prettiest farm and ranch land in Missouri.
When I first started coming down to the river, there was an old log cabin in the beginning stages of collapse. After almost 20 years it still has not given up.
Nice partial dovetail notches on the ends of the logs.
On Sunday daughter and I visited the Queen of Scotland at the St. Charles Tartan days.
She also tried her hand at tossing or moving the hammer.
The day on the river was great, as was the time I spent with daughter, but
Tartan Days was very disappointing this year. . .
I apologize for the spacing. Blogger is being a little cranky today.

Got out the cabin
for a little while on Wed.
to pick up a kayak and
got to spend a little time
out there cleaning up and
Spring isn't quite in full bloom,
but it is getting close.
Only a couple of different kinds of flowers are coming up,
but they are real pretty.
Just love the green moss background. . . .
Something about wood and old metal rotting and rusting away outside.
Seems natural. I hope we can say that about plastics some day.
The lanterns and wheelbarrow still work by-the-way.
The May Apples are coming up, but will be a while before
they bare fruit.
And the colors that can be found on old tin roofs is just fantastic.
