Hello & Welcome to my 63rd episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is my dear, sweet husband’s birthdayβ€”on this 5th “Cinco de Mayo” day in the 5th month of May ❀

Well it took a few tries, but our snow is finally ALL meltedβ€”again, for the 3rd time this season!!! Our treesΒ are barely budding. Red-Winged Blackbirds have returned for another season of sweet summertime tweets. Plus… mid-to-high 20’s ΒΊC temperatures (far preferred over the frozen fluff delivered the morning of my birthday) have bloomed just in time to celebrate hubby’s summer luvin’ personality ❀

Ohhh it’s SO good to finally throw back the flannel, open up the windows, uncover the patio furniture and go outdoors to enjoy everything from breakfast to dinner, yard work and all things crafty!Β 

Our first (pic-less) patio picnic of 2017 was a menu of pork chops with roasted carrots and potatoes ❀ Today’s photo feastΒ of mouth-waterMELONing roll kuchenΒ (recipe posted here)Β was actually our last patio picnic from late-August 2016. Yup… that’s how long it’s been since our weather’s felt palatable for outdoor dining :-/ And yes, I do like playin’ with my food… gotta ❀ bits of hearty foodish-ness on a plate… LoL πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚Β

Hope you're doing well, too πŸ™‚ I've been avoiding the news in general, so haven't heard about the UK blast 😦 Seems like the world is splintering apart …sigh… depressing :-/ All we can do is hold on and trust God to see us through!
