A look back at the week

Another week in the books, and quick look at how it went. Linking up with Gina and Sarah at project rewind. This week's theme is "weakness" I have been obsessed with flowers this week, mostly peonies, so for this week, my weakness is peonies.


A small and intimate memorial for my daughter in law's gram. Such a spitfire of a woman, who had such a hard life and demonstrated perserverance and love of family over everything.


A dinner invitation over to my son's home. Good food, and lovely company
A solo drive into the country to try and find the peony field that I shot on Monday. Driving around and around, up and down for an hour. I never found the peony field, but I did find some other interesting places.
I had a nice surprise in the mail. A lovely bracelet from the Live love travel spring photo challenge. It's the perfect colors, and cute as can be.  silly cat swiped it just as I was taking the shot..apologies for the blur.

 When the hubs got home from work, he took me out in search of the peony field. I felt so silly, it was only 20 minutes from home, and I had been all around it, just missing it! Still wasn't in full bloom, darn it! Now the rain has returned, so not sure this field will be the vision I was dreaming of.

We went with our daughter and family to a trout farm. Watching the little boys fish was so much fun, but it also reminded me how much I love to fish. I've gotta find someone who will take me fishing!
After church, we grabbed the little boys, picked up the father-in-law and went out for breakfast. Wild, is the only way to describe this breakfast. Between an almost 95 year old, and a 21 month old, I was busy! Baby boy double fisting his food. He does love to eat!

I'm sorry about the peony field not being what you imagined, but it is still beautiful! I love the barn shot too!

Very sorry for your family's loss also. Loretta was a beautiful lady. The guitar pic is great!

LOL! Love that the cat's paw got in your bracelet shot. Looks like a fabulous week. Such pretty countryside shots. I really like the dinner invitation shot with the baby in the background--very cool.
