Feeling like Summer

This weekend was absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful sunny and warm weather and cloudless skys. I spent most of my time outside, sweeping the porch and patios, buying hanging baskets for the front porch, working in the garden, pruning bushes, etc. Anything to not have to go inside. I took the picture of the butterfly yesterday. He looks like he posed for me! My radishes, lettuce, turnips and spinach are looking good so far. Only 2 out of 4 broccoli made it. I think some critters took care of the other two before I could get my fence "electified" again. The electric fence is the only way I am able to have a garden. The deer population in our area is huge!

Our cat "Midnight" and Chocolate Lab "Tori" were enjoying the warm weather too!
DH spend yesterday spiffing up my 1967 Camaro for a car show next weekend. DH bought this for me for Christmas several years ago. It is my dream car! DH has a 1966 Corvette that will get it's spit shine sometime this week.

The Dogwood Festival is being held in a neighboring town this weekend and we always take our cars for show. The festival is alot of fun. There is a carnival for the kids, every kind of music anyone would want to listen to, yummy food, craft shows, ending with a parade and the crowning of the Dogwood Queen.

I did get some sewing done, but didn't get any pictures yet, I will try and get them on this week because the dog I made my niece is soooooo cute.

Hope everyone has a great day.

My husband came quick when I told him there was a camaro posted on your blog. Then when I read your post to him and he heard that your husband has a corvette he really moaned.
I'm sure that the car show will be a lot of fun for both of you.
I love your chocolate lab Tori.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I'll surely be back to visit yours again too.
