Snippets from the weekend.

Almonte was 'a happenin' town on Saturday. The stores were showing off their Easter decor and staging their Easter goodies right as you walked in their doors. It was beautiful with all the yellow, greens, creams and purples. Easter baskets will be filled to the brim, I expect, with all the cheerful customers lining up at the cash. I found a little ornament for the Easter tree and also a 'thrifty' treasure to hold some chocolate delights for the kids.

 Oh, did I mention it was A BEAUTIFUL DAY? Winter coats were ditched and Spring attire could be seen everywhere. After a great lunch, we took Kane for a long walk and enjoyed the sunshine.

Sierra helped me feed the birds and squirrels today and then had herself a manicure on the tree bark. I think she's a good cat to stay on our property. That's why she's allowed out for awhile most mornings.

The little knitted egg was this year's addition to the Easter tree.  

I finished a little blanket in the basket stitch for Riley.
Now I'll make a little pillow and then wrap it up with a bow for her Easter basket.

I have a bit of a sore back today so this is my 'day of rest'.
Although, I do feel like putting together a tasty spaghetti sauce so that much I'll do. 
I don't 'rest' well.

It was a quiet weekend for cat-sitting as everyone will be travelling for Easter soon.
Next week you will meet 2 black beauties, 2 tabby sisters, a gorgeous tuxedo, a calico and a marmalade tabby. 
Time to fill up the cat-bag.

Audrey watches me dress from atop my armoire. She is worse than a full-length mirror. She is my 'encouragement' to keep up my daily walks.
"That's a little snug, don't ya think, darling? "
" it was a long, cold winter."

"Oh, zip it, Audrey".

hugs, Deb
