Let’s start with this girl, my dear Sweetpea. For years her brothers have enthusiastically mowed our lawn to earn a little extra cashola. Well, these enthusiastic brothers are not home as much anymore so I thought it was time to give Sweetpea the opportunity. Because she is so petite, I worried that she wouldn’t be heavy enough to hold the seat down to keep the mower running. Well low and behold, she climbed right on and took off on that thing!! She’s a natural! Only one problem though. Her foot can’t reach the reverse pedal with enough pressure to actually activate the pedal, soooooooo I guess she’s not quite ready to mow the lawn. RATS!! She looks good on the machine though, don’t ya think??
This guy (son #3) had a chance to work on his farmer’s tan last Saturday. He golfed well and came home with some “blingage”. 2 medals in a high school JV invitational. (I still can’t get him to wear sunscreen or a hat! Grrrrr)
The house, the house. As you can see we have gained a few necessary things that make the world so much better! One, the stairs to the basement are now in- The ladder was such a drag to go up and down. Two, the wondrous septic tank was buried- now we just need some toilets to fill that tank up! T.M.I., right? One totally useless and purely decorative item was added to the cupela. The CHICKEN. (Our builder called it that.) It’s actually a weather vane with a duck on it. and I LIKE it!
How could I forget these feathered creatures at my bird feeder? Aren’t they beautiful? I really, really enjoy watching these birds! The picture on the left is so special to me- 2 species of birds that are migratory and they’re on my feeder at the same time!
I enjoyed the weather this week! It provided plenty of opportunities to talk and laugh on our patio! Life is GOOD! Hope you had a great week too!! Cheers!!
