Merry Month of May Mosaics

Our oldest flew in for the weekend to enjoy his niece and nephew while his wife was on an annual girls weekend away with her college roommates. Addy loves her uncle Josh and it’s fun to hear them interact and laugh.

Spring is greening and blooming at our country bungalow.

Some plants we recognize, others we have no clue. We aren’t even sure if they are a weed or flowers.

We have found at least 6 Peony plants on our acreage. I’m quite excited to see if the blooms are all alike or a variety.

We rescued this windmill from our kids property a couple years ago and moved it to our home in Kenmore and put it in our yard. When we packed up to move to our place in the country we dissassembled the windmill and moved it here. Dear reassembled it on Saturday and we set it in this spot.

We’ve had a couple days of rain and mowing was delayed. Tomorrow will be dry and I’ll try out our new grass catcher attachment on our riding mower. Hopefully using the catcher will help decrease the dandelion population.

Lots of times poop is the reason for prayer requests and this time it is literal. For my blogging friends who pray, could you please continue to pray for our little Jaymison, that he would be able to poop at least every 3 days. Thank you.

I’m linking up to Mosaic Monday with Angie from Letting Go of the Bay Leaf.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Ellen – I just added Jaymison to my prayer list – for once, this is poop I am really interested in praying about! I would be so excited to see what your garden produces. If you don’t know, the bottom picture in your fourth mosaic is a columbine – one of my absolute favorites in the west! I appreciate you taking the time to link to Mosaic Monday – it is always a joy to see your link-up!

  2. Praying for little JJ. Your property is gorgeous and I can’t wait for you to share the peonies with us. My husband always wanted a windmill like yours. God bless your week, Ellen.

  3. Must be fun waiting to see what plants will pop up!!
    Addy sure looks like she’s enjoying that swing ride.

  4. Your peonies are going to be gorgeous…they are very sturdy and robust. I can’t wait to see them myself. Addy has a million expressions and I can tell that she thinks highly of her uncle.

  5. Looks like your garden will be bursting into color quite soon. The windmill is perfect for your new property! Little Addy is really growing up and I’m so glad you are close enough to enjoy her sweet little presence so often. And I have added little Jaymison to my prayer list. Blessings to you and your family.

  6. Everything looks so lush and healthy on your property. What fun to discover all the plant varieties that are appearing. Love the windmill.
    Dear Ellen – I sure will be praying for little JJ to be “regular”. Hugs …

  7. You sure have a healthy and happy looking garden, love the windmill – hoping that your Jamison will be as happy and healthy soon.

  8. Since I’m a new follower I’m just realizing you are living in a new home. How exciting to discover the plants that are growing on your property. I will be praying for your grandbaby to have normalcy in his digestion and elimination system. Take care.

    • Hi Martha Ellen, Yes we moved about 400 miles from our previous home in a suburb of Seattle to a country home in a small town in northeastern Washington. Thank you for your prayers. They are appreciated.

  9. Oh dear, I hope Jaymison’s system soon regularizes. No fun!
    Your garden is full of potential. You must be enjoying seeing all that it has to offer. How fun to find all the peonies.

  10. Just finished reading your most recent post. Retirement is now for the faint of heart. 🙂 Be gentle on your bodies. I am praying for your precious little grandson that he will overcome these difficulties…and his parents, too.

  11. That swing is one of the most worthwhile baby investments! Herb just bought a new rope to fix the worn out one on the swing we bought 16 years ago for our first grandchild. All eleven of them have enjoyed it over the years.
    I love that you have peonies coming up!

  12. While I have read the mennonite girls can cook blog as well as all the individual blogs, I have not posted before. Asking for prayer for Jaymison caused me to add a comment. My grandson had the same problem and our daughter discovered that essential oils help. She buys Young Living essential oil called DiGi Assist in a roller ball. You rub the rollerball in a clockwise rotation several times around your belly button and it produces results. And would you believe, if you have diarrhea, you use the same essential oil, but go around the belly button in a counter clockwise rotation. It works!
