This morning, a wonderful new morning was rising and shining. :) i wished my little nieces Kayla, Taylynn, and our family a happy baking friday, and shared with them, your beautiful happy baking friday wishes. :) Thank you all so very much. :) You all are very nice, and sweet. :) i began my day, with a sunny nature walk. :) that golden glow of the peaceful nature morning. :) i love it! :) i put lots of goodies all around our yard, for our nature animal friends. :) They were going wild this morning, gathering goodies. :) they love their baking friday breakfast feast. :) we have a very special shoutout, and thank you, for my dear, and lovely mom, and sister Lisa. :) they went to the grocery store yesterday evening, and picked up baking friday supplies. :) it's very nice, and sweet of them. :) they love to pick up the goodies. :) Thank you mom and Lisa, so very much! :) they help make baking friday possible each week. :)
Each year, the friday before mother's day holiday, we always have a wonderful mother's day themed baking friday adventure. :) Around mid-morning, i began to gather baking friday supplies, and decorations, and ventured out into our kitchen, to begin setting up, and decorating our kitchen. :) Today's theme, is roses and spring flowers, for mother's day. :) The kitchen looked awesome! :) we have our very nice, and special happy mother's day themed banners we created, in the kitchen. :) i made a nice iced coffee, and cooked a delicious lunch, and went outside for a mid-day nature walk. :) my brother Charlie came over to help my dad install a new part on our jeep. :) i was walking around our yard, and spotted a really cool sight! :) Hummingbird! :) it was sucha cool sight to see, a cute little hummingbird! :) it was green and black. :) first hummingbird i've seen this season. :) i also saw white butterfly's :) it always touches my heart, to see our nature animal friends visiting our yard, and knowing that they are enjoying the gardens. :) i saw buzz the bumble bee, and lots of bumble bees all around. :) lots of great nature energy. :) early afternoon, i enjoyed some quality time here on DS, writing to friends. :) around 3pm, i gathered some more baking friday supplies, and went back out into our kitchen, to put the finishing touches on our kitchen preparations for our super fun adventure. :) i checked our sugar supply, and noticed we had enough, to make a batch of nectar food for the hummingbirds. :) Awesome! :)
Around 3:20pm, Kayla and Taylynn arrived home from school. :) they were so excited, weekend arriving. :) Taylynn and her classmates had a very special mother's day arts and crafts project. :) they traced their hands on a paper, and had a special mother's day poem, and note on the side of the paper. :) it's so sweet. :) we were so happy to see it. :) We were all gathered around,enjoying the spirit of the day. :) We were gearing up, to bake a nice mother's day cake. :) Taylynn goes to play outside with friends, but comes indoors from time to time to check in on the baking friday adventure. :)

LOVE your tribute to Moms with the flower cake, dear Chris & Kayla!!! Was it helpful to have Taylynn as a Supervisor of Cake Progress??? LOLOLOLOL!!! Both girlz had a hand in the baking that was even if Taylynn was MIA now and then... Hehehehehe...

CONGRATS ON HUMMER SPOTTING!!! Those sweet little birds are back but not yet with a flurry... I only do feeders about every 5 dayz yet I know that soon it will be twice a day fillings...

Oh dear Chris, i had another big day in town and am tired for it now... I was able to score some nice little top sirloins for dinner with I paired with baked red skin tators and onions, broccoli and salad... Dinner was GREAT! I got a great deal of the steaks so they were very reasonable. I\'ve just been a bit hungrier for meat which is odd for me... Must be missing something as my body keeps up the banter with me in my head...

Been sleeping quite well with these long dayz. So are the pupz!!! Not sure except that I\'ve been getting up earlier, working harder, and running more, but loosing that weight as resurrected me!!! I\'ve been feeling great!!!

Love to you and Mom and Dad and ALL THE MOMS in your house!!! Have a SUPER DUPER WEEKEND!!! xoxoxo Cj

Hi Chris, I love your baking Fridays. You always give me great ideas your cake turned out awesome! Sorry I haven\'t been in contact much this week my arm has been hurting pretty good and it hurts to type but it\'s slowly getting better. Thank you for sharing all of the beautiful pictures. Does the dogwood tree keep it\'s flowers for along time? We have a couple of flowering crabs but they only bloom for a couple of weeks. Thinking about planting a new tree and the dogwood looks like it wood be a good choice. I saw you had some computer troubles. I know DS has been acting up all week with the screens freezing & info disapearing. I\'m glad your post office trip went better this week it\'s awful when you get a crabby worker but I guess we all have our days. That\'s so wonderful that your nieces art will be featured in the art show. :) I hope you have a nice time at your grandmas and enjoy mothers day with your mom. Best wishes to your family, happy mothers day to your mom. I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Take care my friend and keep smilin!
Love, Hugs & God Bless
