Allen has started blogging. For those of you who know Allen - he really likes paper and pens and stamps & he likes to get stuff delivered by usps so this is BIG for him, in my opinion. Anyway we are in day 3 of 10 days where Allen is giving us a song a day on his blog. It is really fun to hear him again. Our grandkids listen to his lullaby cd(no longer available that I know of) and they are the 4th generation to do so. Click him, be a little patient as wordpress doesn't exactly have it alltogether (or I don't have it together on how to use it or I am short on patience) - on the click and play thing - but it is well worth the patience - see it in my blog list to the right.
Here we are Weekend II - putting Camp Riverbank in order From the top left, Grass at dock, Lattice repaired, plants planted, seawall swept up and debris removed, ready to plant behind the wall, Tomato plants ready, Pines trimmed back, Walkway walkable, View from Porch after trim, More photos of wall area, View From Porch before trim. It was a great weekend, Not really hot as predicted and a wonderful breeze all day Sunday.
Here we are - left to right top to bottom - working like a dog - who ever came up with THAT expression _ Cooking Landing - planted, irrigation system in place - THE SKYLIGHTS - ALL CLEANED UP - did I mention that PEEPS spent most of Saturday ON THE ROOF with a leaf blower and SHOP VAC _ yes he had them ON THE ROOF - paper towels, windex, and ant spray - squeegie to boot and it was 100 degrees - YIKES - it was a bit scarry even for me..... next shot - exterior street side - all spiffied up - is that a word? - cleaning products safely locked away from little curious toddlers and toddlettes - Screen door - replaced - Maggie next one is yours :) Sling Chairs - all fixed from past mishaps...- old screen door - ready for recycling. AND SO MUCH MORE.... Just returned from boat ride, eating dinner late but no PIZZA - it is after 10 - HA........FOR the record, we finished all the things on our A list, there are still some B-Z things for the rest of y'all who are coming down to do. MUCH LOVE- MayMay and Peeps
Peeps Grayson and Georgia pose next to K's Springtime Flowering Bush. We brought a sprig - no longer than 12" from my friend K's yard in KY about 5 years ago. It is the lovliest thing in my yard this time of year. I wish it bloomed all summer.
So Millie calls and directs me to stop drop and go to the HT - get the coupons out of the aisle vendor and buy 8 count them 8 boxes of cereal and the HT will end up paying me $3 to take the cereal and 3 gallons of organic milk off their hands. NO FOOLING. So here I am in true Millie fashion with my items, my receipt and coupon for $10 which I will get in the mail later. It was fun. I can't tell you how many funny looks I got while wheeling and dealing my stuff at the self service counter on a Sunday afternoon. Gotta love it.
The day we wait for ALL YEAR. Bunny Day at the natural science center. Here are a few photos of Grayson with just a handful of the zillions of rabbits which were there. She wanted to pat them again and again and again.
