Mosaic Monday and Easter week end...




It has been a warmer week end which made me very happy!  I have enjoyed going to the Good Friday service this week as well as our Sunday morning service today to celebrate our Risen Lord!   Everyone seemed to sing "He Lives" with great energy and thankfulness!

I have been asking Ben most of the week end if he was going to dye eggs with me....I finally got an answer..."I am 18 you know mom!"...so this morning before I made waffles with blueberries and whip cream I dyed a few by myself!....guess I will have to wait for grandkids to come along to have a few more join my easter egg party!

Kaleb was not able to come home this week end and I am missing him.  He is busy in the recording studio this week with The Social Threat!  (the band he is in...)  Their CD release party will be in June, so that will be exciting for him.  I am waiting for a CD from a photographer who took some pictures of the band so I can share them with you in an upcoming post.

My pictures today are from odds and ends this week end.  I have enjoyed getting out for my morning walks.  With all the extra moisture filling the ditches and shallow spots, there are lots of birds around.  I counted about 10 different species in a matter of my 4 miles that I cover.  This morning, we had some visitors in the yard...about 5 deer were quitely walking about.  I got thinking of my blogfriend, Lorrie, and the deer problems she is having on Vancouver Island where she lives.... I managed to get the door open and get one good shot of a couple of them before their keen hearing made them jump the fence!





This cute little bucket with the No. 2 on it was one of my finds at HomeSense this spring.  I thought it would be the perfect little spot for the eggs that I dyed today.  I also used the antique editing feature in Picasa.  This will be my Mosaic Monday post over at  the Little Red House.  Be sure to check out Mary's blog with all the great mosaic posts.














I am also posting over at Debbie's "Newbie Party"... a great idea to us that are new in blogland.  Hope you will take a peak over at her site!

Also adding this to Photo feature Friday over at A Rosy Note

Cute bucket, and a fun mosaic. We didn't dye eggs this year either - something I sort of miss. Like you, I'll wait until the grandbaby grows a little older.
Oh, those deer....

Neat mosaic. My son is 16 and still joined in a bit with the little ones dying eggs. The years are numbered though I know.
