the weekend view

It's been another long weekend in our corner. Another long weekend without a camping trip because I've opted for extra shifts at work... you know the things we do to keep it all flowing.
But amidst a few somewhat grumpy tired Mama moments...ahuh there have been those... there has also been time to bake some gluten free cupcakes....oh yes!

And pick the first of this seasons guavas from our tree.
Then eat them in the glowing golden hues of a setting sun.
Delicious.

There was time for watery leaf races.
No one lost...we all won.

There were some stolen moments just sitting watching the dolls play on the deck...

And there was crafting and creative spelling.
Did you know wine cork turtles are pretty cool?
And so is the grin this gives me every time I pop into Mia's room.

Not too bad for a working weekend...
the weekend view from home is certainly worth keeping it all afloat.

Guavas! I didn't know we could raise them in the States! I'll have to look into what it takes to maintain a guava tree.

Oh my goodness, the tootill is absolutely adorable! Seems like you fit in a lot of sweetness despite the extra work shifts. I worked too much this past weekend and my body is still recovering from the extra running around (oh I am beginning to feel too old to waitress!)

Cupcakes and guava...yum, yum!

I love the tootill! That is so adorable. I don't know if I've ever seen a whole guava... And I don't know if I knew that I hadn't until this moment. Thanks for the teaching moment!

I'm so glad I'm not alone on my grumpy mama moments. Juggling life just gets plain tough sometimes. But, it sounds like your weekend pulled through to be quite a beautiful one.

And, I'm smitten with "TooTiLL"...just lovely.

The guavas remind me of Hawaii. We had so many guava trees around our house. We used to collect the fruit on our evening walks and feed them to the horses and cows. xo.

I'm so embarrassed I thought you were in the states! I should have known ... I've never seen domestic guavas :), but one can only hope!

Thank you for coming by my blog, btw!
