Happy May everyone! Can you believe that it is May already? A month for sunshine, daffodils, the warmth of the spring sun and .... snow??!! Yep, it SNOWED here yesterday! I took the hounds out for a walk in the hills above us and ran into snow, hail, wind ... it was quite a cornucopia of inclement weather!
Now, I'm a good Canadian gal, love the 4 seasons, love the snow but in WINTER, Mother Nature, not in May, thank you very much! Fortunately, they are forecasting that after today and tomorrow, we are supposed to get some lovely warm weather with temperatures in the mid 20's Celsius (around 75 Fahrenheit for my American buddies). So I just have to hang in there for another day or two hopefully!
After the walk, it was time for a campfire and roasting some garlic sausage in the snow and hail showers LOL! The Delinquent (the newest addition) was on guard as we relaxed by the fire.
Actually, there was a squirrel in the trees that was driving her nuts and she was zeroing in on where he was, she is quite the hunter! She has to be on a lead at all times as she will take off at light speed after squirrels, birds, deer or whatever else happens to be about. Progress is being made with her though and she is settling into the family, isn't she beautiful?!
The Big Dog was also in hunting mode, protecting us from killer moles!
He and The Delinquent are quite the team, I didn't take a picture but they had dug huge holes between the two of them as they looked for moles. They didn't find any but had a great time looking!
I've been working on some new Summer items for my Etsy shop in anticipation of the Old Farmhouse Gathering Etsy team's Summer celebration!
Starting on May 17th, the OFG Team will have LOTS of new items for you to enjoy, just search STCOFG from May 17th to May 28th at Etsy! I'm going to have four new items for the celebration and one will be my Uncle Sam doll that I was telling you about. I was going to list him at the Olde Primitive Peddler for May 1st but he just wasn't coming together as I had hoped so he will be making his debut on the 17th in my Etsy shop instead :O) Here's a sneak peek, he's still a WIP but is coming together at last!
Well, I must get back to work as I've another new item to come up with for the celebration yet and Uncle Sam still needs some work as you can see! I'll leave you with a picture I took of our forsythia bush, hope you enjoy it and think Spring!
