Good FirSt day of Spring Morning to you all!!! The sun is shining and it looks like it is going to be another beautiful day...yesterday while playing in the yard..i got out my liquid chalk markers and wrote on my chalkboard door that is out on my front porch... and this is what I wrote..;)
I didn't realize how much I am looking forward to spring..and to feel the warmth and just being outside in it;)feels good on these old bones..getting to where I like the heat..now get me when we have our "one week heat wave" and I will be singing a different tune..:)
I forgot to show you the pretty flowers everyone got when we went to our church dinner on thursday..not many showed up...so I took home 5 of these little pots and gave 2 to Sarah to give to her girls..
they also had beautiful flowers on the tables and again I was able to bring home this beautfiul bouquet..;)
the chartruese green flowers are my favorite..I would love to grow these..I would love to have a real cutting garden to pick from all summer long..but too much work..they had the tables all set up with tea pots, and mix and match tea sets..we had a wonderful dinner of shepherds pie..the best I have ever eaten..and trifle..a layered dessert..again very tasty.:)just wish I had thought about bringing my camera.;)
yesterday I started power washing the deck and patio..but the patio is thick from last winter..so hubby is bringing home his super duper one from work..so I can really clean the brick..but I was able to use ours on the lattice work..here is the before..
and now the after...so much better..we get alot of green and moss etc here for our winters..the wood gets slippery etc..we also have to repaint the shady side of the house..the "green" doesn't go real well with the colonial yellow..and we are replacing our roof this year..it is that time..so gotta get it done..still have a fence to put in..will work on that at time and money allow...but the yard is pretty much done this year..did it all last year..so that will be nice..
well after being out in the yard playing hard "Stinkelstillskin" as we were calling him..had to get a bath..and hubby was having fun with his "skirt" so we had to take a few photos of his behind..;)
the curly que..
ahh the old horn but routine.;)..he hates bath time and tells us all about it..from start to finish..;) and hubby combed off a whole doggy..he looks so pretty now..and smells so much better..
one last note..I forgot to mention another article or two about getting your food storage in..with what happened in Japan...I hope this gets you going..Lisa a fellow blogger had mentioned some things about getting your food storage and a great site to join up on..it will help you get started..;)
Hubby found this article online about what is happening in Japan and could certainly happen here.;) Gals I just want you all to be prepared for what ever comes your way...times are getting tough and we all need to be better prepared..trust me..we have a long ways to go.but I sleep better knowing I am "git er done"..;) have a wonderful day wherever you are..we are getting some breakfast and then going for a walk..then I am heading off to church.;)
