We sprang ahead today, it will take me a month to get use to it.
But it will be so nice to come home from work and still have light to take a walk.

I got some special mail this week my daughter had a bag made up with a picture of Sweet B and Me at her last recital. I love love love it. 

Sat I headed up to hang out with Sweet B for the day while her parents had a day out. My daughter gave me this cake keeper..

With acorn on it! Sweet B and I had the best tine she loves rocks and has quite a collection so we looked up where we could buy rocks in her town. She had a list of wanted rocks and we found the biggest rock store I have ever been in. The older guy was so wonderful with her and encouraged her interest in rocks, minerals, and fossils. I had to turn around so I was on a side street and we saw a bakery!
In we go she had never been there either we got a cupcake and a giant cookie. Sweet B was just chatting away, the woman said how cute she was. I told her we only have one grand child so God gave us the best one! We went for a walk and just had the best day.

Husband has a head cold so he stayed home. He called me on the way home from B's to tell me he broke the carafe to our coffee pot.
 I was up and out early this morning for the replacement. 
After I got home..

It was a sunny and warm day so I shut the heat off opened windows and cleaned and cleaned. It made me feel better to get the winter dust out. My hands are raw from washing them so I will not get husband's cold and then I cleaned they are pretty sore. But oh the house smells so fresh after being closed up all winter.

I have been hooking a bit the face on the left is our old man of the mountain. Sadly he slid off the mountain lots of years ago but so glad we all got to see him when he was there. 
Have a wonderful week
with the full moon and Friday the 13th what could go wrong lol?

I'll bet there is something really sweet and tasty under that cake keeper lid. 😁 said...

I own that cake tin too! It was my mother in laws who was born in the 1920s. It still has an old piece of masking tape with her name on it as she frequently carted it to potlucks. The acorn is the sweetest!

Hello!!! Sounds like you've been busy too...glad you found time for some fun. Love the cake keeper...I've seen lots of them (I know my mum had one...and yup, with the old piece of masking tape with her name like kcmrugs said), but I have never seen one with an acorn. Neat treasure. Yes, this week has the potential for the strange and unusual. Unfortunately, it's so overcast here tonight that we can't see the supermoon....but it was beautiful last night too. Even cloudy it had lit up the night. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Love that cake holder! I bet it keeps cakes nice and moist!
We enjoyed some warmer weather recently too...and yes, it put the Spring cleaning bug in my bonnet too! One thing I do when cleaning is slather some vaseline (lightly) onto my hands, then put on a pair of disposable rubber gloves (dollar store)...this protects your hands from the cleaning products while also giving your hands (and nails) and super moisturizing treatment! :-) Ooooh-la-la!
Sounds like a splendid day with Miss B! Hope your hubby gets better soon!

Your telling of the day out with your Sweet B put a smile on my face. I enjoyed reading about her fascination with rocks. I am so ready to give our house a thorough cleaning, but am holding off until we shut down the wood stove. I would like to know more about your old man of the mountain.

Sweet bag! What a thoughtful gift.
Love the cake holder and I'm sure you will make something delish to store inside :)

I love the cake cover - I have a soft spot for big old oak trees. Sweet B and you had a lovely day, it sounds like.
