Another Great Day!

Apple was right about being in a holding pattern, It seems like there hasn't been too much to post about. The Colonel and I spent yesterday preparing for my brother and his family's visit in a few weeks. They live in Texas but their oldest is graduating from a college in the East. After the graduation they will stop here for a few days. It will be great to have everyone together! Apple and her kids will venture up and our Mom will have all her kids, grandchildren and great grandchildren together. All the excitement tires her out but she absolutely glows!

It was another great day for working outside with blue skies and sun. We washed the siding and outdoor furniture. Our old arbor had rotted and our new one arrived yesterday late in the day. It has a curved top and should work nicely. While I pulled my "mystery plants" that turned out to be pretty aggressive weeds, the Colonel scrapped the fence between one of the flower beds and his vegtable garden. It looks a little rough now but it will look nice when it has a fresh coat of paint. We even installed a new shower head for the family's arrival! I think they need to visit more often ;o)

After we worked, we decided a little play was in order and went for a big walk down by the creek. The fishermen had beat down a path that we followed. Everything in the woods was looking pretty green. When we came back, we cut up by they edge of our land and there is a small creek where the land looked so plush I had to get a shot of it. I wish the grass at the house was looking so green!


  1. Looks like a great place for a park bench to sit and relax. I love water pictures. Thanks,


  2. Very pretty. I'll bet it would be a great place for a "thinking spot" when the grass is dry enough to sit on.

  3. Country Girl, using incoming houseguests as the reason to get things done is a time-honored tradition around here, too! The guests are the excuse, but you get the lasting benefit.

    You and Apple have a lot to look forward to - how cool to have the family together at this lovely time of year.
