It's just been the same ol' same ol'....house, yard, laundry....bor-ing! *yawn*....
My garden is "going to town!" It needs the tiller run thru it something fierce but we've gotten so much rain over the past couple weeks a tiller would only get mired down in the mud! Even with the shower we got this morning, hopefully it will dry up enough and the weeds won't get much worse to get it tilled in a couple of days! I have little tomatoes coming on the vines....little 3"-4" zucchini....I think I've even seen some cucumbers coming on! I know the rain has helped it tremendously but it sure makes it hard to get in there to weed.
Ely and Liz have been here for several days....the house they are renting has some plumbing issues so until that gets taken care of they are staying here. I'm having to share my computer/sewing room ...I'm not complaining...it's nice to have them here and I'm sure they'd much rather be in their own house since they are living out of suitcases and sleeping on an air mattress.
Working at home today.....my alterations work is all caught up so I can do some fun work today....and I don't mean the laundry! I had to go for a fabric fix last week so I started work on some aprons this morning! I will be showing them to you real soon!
I hope you all are well and had a great weekend....what's going on in your world today?

Even though we had two geese spend alot of time down at our pond this winter, I never did see them bring up any babies.
Want a cookie? Do you like toffee or butter brickle? Looking for a yummy cookie recipe? I won't type out the recipe here because you can find it right on the package of 'HEATH' bits 'o brickle toffee bits!
I've got a couple of alterations to get done and do some cleaning today. What are your plans for the day?

Last Wednesday was my sister Susan's 40th birthday. So, sister shopping trip on Saturday to the Village Mall down by the lake. We had a great time... and Marsha, our oldest sister went with us this time!
We finally decided we'd all gone to all the places we needed to or wanted to and headed to dinner at The Outback Steakhouse....they have this chopped salad with pecans and blue cheese...Mmm...SO good...it was a nice change from the regular house or ceasar salads.
We headed for home....all of us just beat but ready to do it all again.......
The next birthday trip will be for my birthday in July....Hmm....what to do....where to go?!
Our Dad's birthday is today, so yesterday, we had a little gathering at my sisters after church. Some of us just sat around and yacked under the shade tree while others fished, rode bikes or jumped on the trampoline!Here are my nephews...Andrew, Evan and Peyton....bouncing on the trampoline! Andrew and Evan were lovin' it but I think Pey was afraid he was gonna get bounced off!!
I don't know how many times I'd been out to the back porch or out the back door after I got home yesterday afternoon and didn't see this ...... Briar and Calli were headed out when they spotted this guy out in the back yard! He must of been headed to the creek or the pond....and who said turtles are slow? I don't think it had even been an hour after taking his pic that I went to see which direction he was headed and I couldn't even find him! He was gone!
I hope you had a nice weekend.....it's time I get off this thing and get myself busy! Playtime is over and work is waiting! Have a WONDERFUL day!!

To top off my day....my sister Susan, her hubs Michael and my nephew Evan showed up last night so Michael could switch out the ceiling fan/light for a regular ceiling light here in my computer/sewing room! More light...I can see better!! And while he was here, he figured out the problem with the ceiling fans and outlets on my back porch! That being done, we can spend more time out there....We turned our air on over a week ago and you know once it's on....it's on. With all the windows and the fans on the back porch, it can be quite comfortable to sit out there and stitch or scrapbook while watching a movie or just listening to the sounds of living in the country. In fact, I think I might even drag one of my sewing machines out there today to work. Maybe I'll get some of those ufo's done?!
So what's going on in your world today?
