The WeekEnd

Life at CedarHill .....it was a good weekend. When you are in the mood to eat out, there aren't that many choices out here in the country. However, we do have one very special place called the County Seat. The food is so tasty....just like Momma's home cooking and on the week end their specials are a cross between excellent home cooking and gourmet. People come from miles away to eat at this restaurant. We always eat on the front porch if the weather's nice and it was. Friday night I was just in the mood for a good ol' hamburger. Their hamburgers are named the Flossie burger and the Bossie burger. Their burgers have been written about in all the newspapers around here. They are just soooo good. I think it's the combo. of mustard and onions that does it.





There are some things that are better told after the fact. My youngest DS went on a cold weather get-away vacation to the Florida Keys this past week. We learned Saturday that he had been sky diving. Yikes! I have no photos of that. :)

In the mail there was a surprise package. Couldn't remember ordering anything so I anxiously opened it. Before it was completely opened the most divine smell hit me. It was the gorgeous soaps, in a beautiful presentation, I had won from Your Bath Boutique. These are her Savon Marie soaps.....Pink Sugar Kisses, French Vanilla Sugar and Vanilla Rose. She has a whole line of scrumptious body soaps and lotions. You must check it out for yourself and for yummy gifts.


Took a long stroll this weekend around the farmette and I just had to show you some more Spring has Sprung photos. The white flowering tree is at the end of our front walk. It's white with just a slight tinge of pink and for about four days it looks like a great big fluffy cloud it's so beautiful. It's already starting to loose it's petals and it looks like it's snowing. The tree "buzzes" with hundreds of honeybees and bumblebees and the swallowtail butterflies love it too. Can you spot the butterfly in the third photo?






And all through the woods you can see the deep pink of the redbuds and just a hint of green in new growth on the trees. By next week the dogwoods will start to open.

Bobby G. is in the market for a new car. We tried this one out this weekend. One of our cars has got to be a four wheel drive so we can get out of our long drive in the snow. This SUV was so ugly it was cute. It was like a big silver box. It drove really heavy. I hear Brad Pitt drives one. We won't be getting this one. :)


While we were on our stroll Dr. Ron, our neighbor, came riding over to give us the news. Together we are planning a barn party for late Spring and there's a certain band we wanted to get. This band is very popular but his good news was we got them only not for the weekend we wanted. So it's back to the drawing board on that one. Since I always try to have my camera with me I was busy snapping away at pictures of our neighbor. I am sure he wandered why but he didn't say anything. Dr. Ron, I am sure, has no idea what a blog is. That's 'Bama', one of his horses.



Sunday was cold and rainy and I unintentionally slept in. It was nice though and the rest of the day I did some major cleaning upstairs, made some cheese crackers and brunswick stew and finished up a "Princess" crown for theVintageNest boutique. I also heard from a very special friend in another country. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. xo Lynn

There's something about a burger cooked on the grill, with a toasted bun that is just a treat- and with a side of fries, well- now you've got me hungry!

Hi Lynn,
Love the crown....it looks like it will fit me LOl
The pics of the blossoming trees are so pretty. I love this time of year. The great thing about blogging is you get to see the changes in other parts of the world too. I need to add my blogging buddies on my blog too. You will be the first one I add. I may have to do that after April 5 though. Chat soon.

That burger looks soooo good. A good burger is something to cherish, don't you think?? Now I am craving one, but even though I grill in the cold, it is supposed to rain by dinner time. Oh well, c'est la vie :>)

Hi Lynn,
That does it. I am going to have to move to the coast (2 hrs) or one of the lakes (1 hr). Every picture you take of your property makes me long to get out in the country. You definitely have a way with words. Hamburgers for dinner tonight, lol.
Sweet spring days to you,
Theresa (CottageViolets)

Gosh, you have been busy, Lynn! I love your description of the burger place. Artie and I have a little place here called the Captn's Table. The owners knows us on a first name basis, and know we love to escape there for dinner... hmmm, speaking of...no dinner plans for this evening... Artie?

You always have just the best photos. Those lacy white buds on the trees... magnificent. You've inspired me to make more of an attempt to get shots of my neighbors pink cherry blossoms this year... it's always overwhelming in its beauty. (So much so I forget to take shots of it!!) :)

PS- those french fries look spectacular. :)

It is always great to find a place that makes a hamburger the exact right way. It's an art form;-)! The burger and fries in your photo look perfect!

Hi Lynn, here I am for my weekly visit...
Lovely post! The resto looks great, though I think I wouldn't take a burger... ;) The butterly tree is wonderful and your story of Dr. Ron an amazing one. He must be blogging around... ;))
Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter, where I’m still strolling around Bilbao (not yet the Guggen, though). Look forward to reading you back there!
Have a great weekend!
Gil

Skydiving!?!?! EEK. The most frightening thing I've ever watched was "bungie jumping" off a cliff over the Guadalupe when our family was rafting the river. Skydiving seems safer but I know you wanted to "Ground" your son! GReat post.
