A Day in the Life!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. My husband needed help getting the new tub/shower for the basement, so he had my son help him and that meant time with Nicholas for me. Of course Bean was excited to have company and spent the day, trying to herd him.

We ended the day with lunch, homemade rice and chicken that his mom makes up for him. We used the day to eat and be silly.

After we drove them home, we stopped at a local park for a short walk. This is a pond that used to be a public beach and picnic area, but now there is no swimming and they closed the campground down, years ago. Such a shame, it was a nice place to take the kids and we need another state park for camping.

There was still snow in some areas and ice on the pond.

The trail goes around the pond, so we started into the woods.

Lots of nice places to stop and enjoy the views and of course Bean had to explore every nook and cranny.

It was cold and windy, but the path narrowed and it was nice walking in the woods. The problem was, the paths got muddy, so we decided we would come back when we had more time and it was dry, then we can go around the whole pond, something I have never done.

On the home front, I have been working on the rag quilt and hopefully I can get more done in the next few days. The kitties are always finding new places to sleep and Izzy thought my easter hat and chicks made a nice pillow.

And then there is Moki and Bean. Bean has been chewing holes underneath my new couches when I wasn't looking. And Moki has decided it is the perfect kitty hideaway to sleep in.  While I was on the floor trying to get a photo of Moki, Bean decided to get in the act.

Looks like some fun time together. We have a similar hole under our sofa but it was made by a Japanese "Kuma Nezumi" ... which is either a large mouse or a small rat. We don't need one more pet but a cat might come in handy.

How nice to have Nicholas for the day!! Loved all your photos but of course the one of Bean steals the show - he is such a character! I was a little surprised to read that you still have some snow and ice. :)

Glad you were able to spend time with your grandson. I had a Siamese cat who would hide under the furniture like that. Not sure if that cotton cover was ripped by the cat or just wore loose but was perfect to a feline.

He is just so cute!!! I laughed at Bean trying to herd him - too funny. And oh bad bad doggie, lol, although I'm sure Moki appreciates it!
