Saturday and Sunday & This and That
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
this idea for a small island in the
I actually have a sewing machine like
this at mom's that I need to get
someone to help me drag over here.
Many, many years ago (many) my
great granny gave it to my mom.
I do not wish to take it apart for this
purpose below but I could make a wooded
piece to slide right over the top of the old
There is thought!
I have a lot of those!
This morning it is a
morning on the deck but at 8:15am
it is so nice. I have my furbabes
with me. One jumping here and there and
from one side of the deck to the other and
one curled up next to me sleeping and snoring,
I will let you guess which is which!
Anyway, on the deck, camera by my side,
laptop in my lap and coffee within reach,
the birds are singing, no mowers running,
no kids playing....beautiful.
Here are a couple more cute laundry
room sayings that I found a few days ago.
I so need to make one of these for my
Yesterday was a slow down day for me
so I tried to just rest and take it easy.
Tried napping on the deck but there
was too much going on around me
so I decided to do some painting.
My neighbors might run me out of the
hood if I don't stop painting things!
I worked on my stepping stones.
Dakota of course is never far from
me and here he is checking out
I got a tad carried away on this one,
I did some spatters on it!
On purpose of course.
A view from the deck!
I am calling this my
Colorful Brick Rd to the
Sandra over at
is a friend on FB and she
loves the flower on the shed.
I painted that about 3 yrs ago and
sealed it...looks as good as it
did the day I painted it.
Although I know that sealing the
stepping stones will not help all
that much. They might not fade as fast
but walking on them and running
the mower over them will break it
A worn look will look just as cute.
Yesterday while sitting on the deck
I watched a couple of Chickadee's
visit Lily's feeder. The are eating yellow
cake! haha...had to get it out of the house.
Last weekend I went to my daughters house
to work on the boys bunk beds.
When they moved they lost some pieces
and since the new hubby knows nothing
about tools it took mom to fix things.
I told Amber this is what we needed to do
instead of me fixing them.
Then I saw this!
Here are two of my boys.
This is Braden, a pic Amber
sent me of him after being at the
ball park watching Will's son play ball
This is kid can walk from the house
to the car and start out clean,
but by the time he gets to the car, dirt
has jumped all over him!
This is DJ. Our accident waiting to happen.
The day before he was walking and tripped
over Braden's scooter, DJ took a slide
across the asphalt on his face.
The life of boys!
HAHA I remember when I had my son and
he was little, I told everyone I was so not
ready for a boy! Harder than dealing with a little
So how is your day going so far?
