I'll start by saying how proud I am of all the service men and women out there who are protecting us in this country. We have a couple very special guys who are serving in the Air Force as we speak and we are so proud of them. They both are heroes to me and my family. Way to go Gary and Brandon.
Man oh man what a busy weekend this was. Starting with Friday. I told you I had to clean up that sewing room before I could show you pictures. Well, guess what I did all day Friday? And I do mean ALL FREAKIN DAY!!! But does it ever look great. I'm afraid to start another project now because it looks so good. I found fabric I had forgot that I bought. I know that doesn't surprise any of you who buy fabric or who quilt. I just love my fabric. And you can tell by these pictures. I hate using it because then it will be GONE and then what am I to do??? Oh wait, I know......go buy more fabric. Anyway, that's what I did on Friday. I would insert a couple photos right here but this #@***## computer is about the slowest thing right now. I've been waiting for 7 minutes for one photos to load. My new wireless thingy is on it's way. Hubby is saving the day with it. It's coming second day. So hang on.
So, Saturday we started working on the backyard. My poor rose bed hasn't been taken care of for four years. That's how long I owned my shop and I didn't step foot in the backyard hardly during that time. But let me tell you girls, they are looking good now. I was so sore when I woke up on Sunday. But it was all worth it. Hubby is building a cute little deck and white picket fence around a shed we have in the back. It actually looks like a two store cute little house. Pictures when it's finished.
Sunday.......more yard work. I vacuumed the pool. Talk about making the hubby happy. I kind of liked it to tell you the truth. I dont want to let him know exactly how much I enjoyed it or this could be my new job. I planted some more geraniums, mini roses, and this cute flowering ground cover which makes the best hanging baskets. Dont know the name of it though. I have to say we were pleased with all of our hard work this weekend.
Today, we did more of the same. Went back to the hardware store again for the second day in a row. I wanted to go to the garden section, he wanted to go to plumbing for sprinkler accessories. Oh, forgot to mention all the tomato plants we got going over here. If they all grow we will be making our own ketchup before summer is over. I'm telling you we have the plants.Yesterday we actually saw a small mater on one plant. We both got so excited you would have thought we saw gold on that plant.
Hubby goes out of town tomorrow morning so I get to rest. Not that he cares if I rest or not. That sounded like he is a slave driver.I am telling you this yard work is hard labor. Im not used to squatting, bending, stretching, and did I mention sweating? I'm ready to go back to my sewing machine and watch my tv with my snack by my side.
OH WAIT!!! I think a photo loaded??? Yes I think it did. HOLY CRAP!!! Let me try another one.
This is some of my Moda bundles. I mean GOLD!! Do not touch, dont even act like you are going to touch.
