Weekend...


I am home from work... Got the ad set up and opened some boxes... Sunday is my easy day... Son3 has been watching HellBoy cartoons all day... Son2 has been helping son1 and playing his Oblivion computer game... Son1 has been very busy... Vacuumed the house, did the dishes, took the Goodwill to Goodwill, did three loads of his laundry, cleaned his room, worked on the fence in the front yard and is now watching a movie with girlfriend... Hubby should be home from work in an hour or so... We went grocery shopping yesterday and got corn on the cob for 10cents ea... boiled it yesterday but we had pizza and beans and chips... So I will be making cube steak to go with the corn in just a bit....


My roses are finally blooming again... Yay.... It's 104 right outside right now though...


Yesterday I got in a bit of a cleaning mood finally and washed all the pots and pans... Wiped down the island... Cleaned out the island cupboard of all the small appliances and got rid of a couple and organized the ones back in so they are easy to get to now... Washed the rugs and swept the kitchen floor... It needs washing but everyone was in and out all day yesterday....


Son1 has still been his social self but has been more attentive to his responsibilities too... He sold some old car parts he had and was able to do some repairs on the new car... He has a couple more parts listed on Craig's List and if they sell he can replace the turn single light covers in the front and finish fixing the exhaust...


Son1 asked hubby yesterday if he could build the fence that we started planning six years ago and hubby hadn't got to yet... We already had the posts and cement, so for $40.oo the fence rails and brackets were bought and yesterday son1 started measuring for the plans for the fence.... It's going to have a country style look.. more for decoration than keeping anything in the yard... It will deter people from cutting through our yard however, especially when we put up all the decorations at Halloween... and I can put decorations on it at Christmas... That's his new white car in the background...


Pistol and son2 were helping too.... Son2's back is better and he will be going back to school tomorrow...




Today I came home to three of the posts cemented in.... He is waiting for them to dry that is why he is watching movie with girlfriend... He's hoping by 6pm they'll be somewhat set...


Hubby was also doing projects yesterday... He built a shelf to put his computer on....


But ended up coming up with a different idea and rearranged the whole computer/drafting table and used his new shelf for computer books instead... lol....


Holly was just relaxing yesterday...


This the new pen hubby and son1 made for Pistol in the backyard...

I have now done three loads of my laundry... I need to water the houseplants, wash the pots and pans we dirtied last night making dinner, update the checkbook and get dinner started for tonight....

Happy Journaling...

That fence is going to look great, except it will keep us from parking the truck & camper on the lawn~LOL! I'm glad #1 is helping you & Bill. You both work so much and another helping hand makes the whole load a little lighter. Did #2 get his mail from me? Linda in WA

By the way, I love that top rose...is that Sterling? I used to have a lavender type rose but I can't remember the name of it.
