Thank you all for the very lovely comments to my last post. I always tell my hubby that I wish all my blog friends and myself lived in the same area, can you imagine all the fun we would have?! It's so hard to find people who share your same interests, especially when you live in a small town, that is what is so wonderful about the internet and blogging. But, it can also be a bit depressing. Anyway, thank you again, and I will just keep my blog as it is and keep sharing my life with you :)
Look what came in the mailbox today!!! My prize from Donna's(Donna's Primitive Blessings) giveaway. I got the mail on my way out and my daughters opened up the box in the car for me. All they kept saying as they were opening it up was, "oh man, it smells so goooood!". So here are my divine smelling goodies, no booby prizes here!... a darling little candle cup with battery tea light, a prim little hanging pin keep, and a prim tea towel(that is already hanging on my dry sink by the front door). Thank you Donna for a very nice present in the mail!!! I love it all :)
My oldest daughter has decided she wants a secret rose garden in the backyard. So I'm going to put the baby crib bench in a little secluded spot and build a trellis for her. We bought two miniature rose bushes yesterday and they will be the start of her new garden.
Before my son mowed the scorched dead grass this afternoon(we really need some more rain) I went out and dug up some black eyed susans that had popped up in the yard. I'm going to transplant them in my garden by the picket fence.
And here is my latest outside project... I've been covering all the mulch in my front door veggie garden with river rock. I'm tired of the weeds and crab grass popping through and the mulch only looks good for so long. I'm thinking maybe converting all the mulch beds to rock, it would be a time and money saver in the long run.
Once we get some good rain storms, the sand will wash the down and the color will be less tan/pinky.
I still have a ton of outside work to do, but I'm really NOT a hot weather girl, so most of the work may wait until Fall or at least until we get a few cool days.
Have a terrific day,
