The apple trees were bravely blooming after the hard frost we saw this week. I think we may have lost many of the potential apples, but the new blossoms still look pretty promising.
*photo by PapaSylvia and I painted the aluminum that we are going to use for siding the chicken coop. Papa has been cutting these siding tiles out of scrap aluminum in his spare time and we are going to paint them three different colors to make a pattern on the coop. This is just the first batch. It's a bit time consuming, but we're reusing materials and I'm excited to see what it's going to look like. Right now the coop looks like a tar paper shack.
Since we can't have all work and no play, we went out for dinner while Camille enjoyed her second sleepover in two nights. The waitresses kept commenting on how well-behaved and patient the girls were and brought us free dessert to-go. Ha, ha, I guess they got us on a good night.

And a very satisfying weekend! Hope yours was as well.
I'm joining Stephanie again this week for Saturday's Artist over at Ordinary Life Magic.
