Big 4-6

This past weekend, I celebrated another b-day.  Funny how they creep up on you.  Hubby gave me the pretty spring cake, it was very good.  

On Saturday, we took about an hour road trip to Clifton, Ohio.  It's a little historic town that has an old mill where you can enjoy a meal.  Their pancakes were humongous!  I had mine with blueberries.

The mill sits right on the edge of a small gorge...

I was hoping to walk around the town a bit and there is also a nature trail that takes you down by the water, but it was raining so we had to enjoy what we could from the porch and window of the mill.

As I've mentioned before, we've been doing a lot of work around the house.  Yesterday, we got some bare patches in the yard tilled and grass seed planted.

As you can see, we still need to clean out the beds and have this waiting for us in the drive...

Nothing like fresh mulch to give the house some good curb appeal.

Luckily we've had a warm spring.  My irises have already started to bloom and it's only mid-April!

Cleaning out the landscaping beds is on the agenda for tonight.  If daylight holds out, we'll start to mulch.  

Hope all is well in your neighborhood!
