I thought I'd share a few pics. I don't have the "gift of gab" my oldest daughter has, or the primming skills of my middle daughter, but I have pictures. Sometimes they say much more than words.
I drove 104 miles last Saturday to hang out with two my childhood friends. Two of my female cousins. When we were younger our mothers all lived within 100 miles of each other, so we spent holidays and summer vacations together. One lives in Oregon, and the other near Cincinnati. We got together to celebrate my Aunt's birthday, and spend an afternoon catching up with each other. I really enjoyed seeing them. Here we are. It's hard to tell I'm related to the tall, thin blonde isn't it :)
Sunday I received a call from Kaylee asking if she could come to my house for the day. So I went and picked her up. She and I chased camera shy butterflies throughout the yard.
We decided to work on the cornzebo. Since I didn't get a brick floor layed this summer, we just spread the gravel for now. Somone had to try making a "snow angel" in the gravel dust. Her entire backside was white but she had fun. After our gravel spreading, hubby brought the grill up from the back patio, so we can grill during the winter. Since the cornzebo is located outside our kitchen door, it will be a convenient covered location to grill even when the weather is nasty.
My helper decided we needed to have a picnic to celebrate. So we had hotdogs. I'm pretty sure the cats were liking the picnic idea too. You can see they're stalking her.
Kaylee also helped me catch the goldfish that summered in the fish pond. It's name is Ono, but she likes to call it Nemo. We both got a bit wet trying to catch that wiley fish. I guess that's how he survived the raccoons all summer.
Hubby helped The Mr. on the new house Saturday afternoon while I was gone. We'll be helping them move this weekend.
