…and the living is easy.
Jaymison was gifted the sandbox from his granny for his birthday. Addy and JJ are enjoying it.
Our company just left and I’ll post some photos on Monday. Hope you all have a good weekend.
I’m going out to water.
In May of this year I took this photo. As you can see the paver section of our sitting area just below our back deck/porch is small.
In this July photo that I took on Monday it shows the space now after Dear added 40 more pavers. We still have enough pavers to make the space yet a little bigger. All the pavers were already on the property so this improvement is all labor with no cost to us except for sore muscles.
We’ve had a mild (cooler) and wetter start to summer this year and our plants are enjoying that.
Our California company arrived to our home safe and sound. We enjoyed a meal around the table and time throughout the evening catching up. Addy was thrilled to play with Avery, her “medium sized friend”. Jaymison was very skeptical of Ryan and Jack, mostly of Ryan. He was okay with the medium sized Avery and even managed a smile at Michelle. Nary a photo was taken. Oye. Maybe I’ll remember today…
How cute are our little grands sporting their 4th of July matching outfits??
On the Fourth this year we gathered at Jamie’s Uncle’s home for a potluck barbecue. I didn’t take a photo of the salad I contributed but it was from our Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog and here’s the link. A refreshing summer Watermelon Cucumber Salad from Bev.
Before we left to the 4th of July gathering I worked on our backyard planters weeding. Our front planters need a lot of work still and I hope to get to them this week.
A walk about the yard taking photos of all the pretty things and weeds that are blooming.
Our day lilies are in their glory right now as is this Clematis.
After a wonderful 5th of July service at church honoring God and country we took a Sunday afternoon drive up Aladdin Road all the way to the Washington US Border with Canada. On the way back we took a side road to check out Deep Lake. I’m not able to upload the photos from this spur of the moment road trip yet.
We are expecting some out of state visitors this week. Looking forward to that. What is up in your corner of the world?
