Happy Monday to you! In our neck of the woods, we had beautiful weather this past weekend to usher in spring. The mornings and evenings were a little cool with lovely daytime temperatures where the sun was shining, but it wasn't too hot either.
This post is short and sweet, because most of our Saturday and Sunday were spent outdoors in our yard. I spent time cleaning up our yard, picking up lots of sticks, cleaning out flower beds, and planting a few things in pots.
We also had a new side fence put up last week and my husband added a gate and working on some other places in our backyard to try to keep our dog in our yard. The dog has been getting out a lot lately and has been quite the hassle for us and to our neighbors. We will see if this helps...this picture is the below. As you can see, the side fence was literally falling down and the end of it was just propped up with random things. And apparently I forgot to take a picture of the after, but will do that soon!
Sunday, we went to church, went out to lunch and ate outside, and then my daughter and I went to a friend's house. They had invited some ladies and their kids to come decorate spring cookies. It was fun and then I came home to do some more outside yard work.
Hope you all have a great start to your week! Thanks Tanya for the link-up!

Top of the morning to you on this St. Patrick's Day! Hope you are all wearing your green and if you're in the south, stay safe with these storms approaching us today.
I am linking up today for the monthly Let's Look feature with this month's topic being "Perfect Night In".
So many thoughts on this one, but just going with reality here on a perfect night in at our home.
A perfect night consists of the little things that make life important and special. First, I would want all my people here. That would be my husband and two daughters. We would have dinner, prepared probably in the slow cooker or a sheet pan dinner, to make things easy. This would be followed by a simple dessert of brownies or cookies.
With a candle burning, we would play a game, share some laughs, then watch old episodes of either The Office or Parks and Rec (while snuggled in a cozy blanket) and share some more laughs.
This sounds like a lovely, simple evening for us.
Since my older daughter lives away at college, a current perfect night in still consists of a fairly easy, but delicious dinner prepared in advance, good tv with a candle burning and twinkling lights on, and sitting in the hot tub to catch up on the day.
I feel like for most of us, especially after the past 12 months, we have learned to appreciate the little things even more than we ever did.
Irish you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hope you all had a good weekend and are well rested after losing that hour of sleep this past weekend.
Today, I am linking with Tanya and catching up on our weekend and 1 year pandemic thoughts.
We took off Friday for a quick trip to Nashville for a college information session for our daughter.

Good Monday morning! Somehow, last week went by so fast. Today, I am linking up with Tanya and catching up on the weekend and a little of last week.
As I have mentioned before, I help my husband with his business some. Part of that is helping with ordering, which included an afternoon trip to pick up some tile (he does construction remodeling & additions). We drove a little over an hour in his truck and had lunch together. It was a good afternoon.
Good Monday morning. Life has been tough lately and is winning over my blogging time these days. But, today, I am sharing some highlights...
