Special Thanks!

I wanted to give a special thanks to Mike for plowing my garden this year!


Mike's newly rebuilt tiller.
Isn't she pretty?


Thanks again Mike!

This weekend the girls picked the first veggie.

I made some eggplant parmesan.

Wasn't too bad.

Have a good evening.

Need Motivation

Remember that cedar patio set I bought last season? I need some motivation in painting it. I dreamt of sipping iced tea and reading a book while sitting under the umbrella. Well, I got the umbrella and have had several books this summer. However, I've only painted three chairs.




On another note...

I made these basket liners for Mother's Day.

Well, mother decided to change her gift. She tea stained the fabric, added ties and spray painted the basket.

I suppose it looks pretty good.

Have a restful day.

Holy Chairs!

My mother picked-up four chairs at a church rummage sale, then gave me two additional to makeover.
What's a girl to do with all these chairs?

(Pics aren't great. I took them at 7am.)

Besides trying to figure out what to do with these chairs, I've been on a baking frenzy.
Muffins and bread are my forte this week.

I made these blueberry muffins from the Martha Stewart Baking Handbook. I give them a B-. Not my favorite.

As for the garden...

It's coming to life!
Look at the cucumber plant I bought weeks ago.

No. You are not crazy.
This eggplant was mislabeled cucumber.
What a surprise!
Everything else seems to be coming in nicely.

Last but not least...
Here are some cool yard sale finds.

$0.50 each wire basket

$5 wooden box

Hope you're having a great weekend!

`Have a restful night.

Worst Blogger Ever!

Hello Everyone!
I know I'm the worst blogger ever!
I miss you all.

This picture describes my life.

Life has been non-stop!

I finally planted my garden two weeks ago, so hopefully I'll have corn by October.

Maddie has officially graduated from preschool.

Poppy is well.
He has officially RETIRED!
Every time I see him, he is in a Hawaiian shirt.

I've been working on some projects.

Can't wait to show you!

Hope all of you are having a good summer!

See you soon.
