Happy Sunday, friends! It’s a beautiful day in the Mitten! I’m a day late with my moments, but before I get out and about, come on over and see all my Mitten Moments I found, this week.

It seems as though our weekends are always busy. As the weather gets warmer, we definitely have more to do!

Yesterday, Big Al and I went to my oldest son and DIL’s house. They are expecting twins, next week and we are helping them get some things in order at their new house.

Did you catch that? Twins! We can hardly contain ourselves!

Today, we are off to our middle son and DIL’s for lunch.

A weekend well spent! Nothing better than spending time with family!

In more exciting news, all our trees are finally in full bloom! Our cherry, magnolia, dogwood and our eastern rose bud.

This Week On The Blog

It was a quiet week on the blog. However, I did post An Easy Way To Repair Canopy Straps.

I will admit it’s not very exciting but quite useful, nonetheless!

Last summer, we had some high winds that ripped the canopy straps right off two out of four canopy supports. We considered purchasing a replacement canopy but they are pretty pricey. So, I decided to try and repair the canopy first, and if it didn’t work, we would buy a new one.

I’m happy to report the repair has so far been successful!

If you get a chance, I would love for you to check it out!

Random Trivia

Since all my flowering trees are in bloom, here’s a little tree trivia for you!

  • Flowering dogwood has quite a history. Thomas Jefferson grew it on his Monticello estate in the 1770s and even sent seeds overseas to his friend in Paris.
  • Washington, D.C. has been celebrating the blooming of cherry trees for more than 75 years with a festival.
  • A young redbud tree typically grows 12 to 18 inches per year, ultimately reaching heights of 30 feet! It’s one of the first spring trees to bloom and the flowers are edible.

Who knew my redbud was edible?? It might be, but I don’t think I’ll be trying it!

And Now…

Here are some other WONDERFUL moments I found this week:

Well, that’s all my Mitten Moments for this Saturday!

I hope all the moments of your Sunday bring you more joy than you could imagine.
