Emma stayed all night. She and I will go to brunch at Aunt Angie's house. She will be with me till Monday. It's amazing how quickly children grow. Seems more so when you do not see them often.
Lynzie ( my daughter Liz's daughter) is expecting her first child in December. I could see she seemed tired yesterday. She's an R.N. so she has busy work schedules. The girls all stayed long enough for Papaw Teddy to get hugs and have a few minutes of catching up.
If Layla were not being breast fed by Emily, she might have stayed over night also. :) Emma says she is Layla's favorite aunt. I think she will be. I can see Emma baby sitting one day. I had to watch my siblings when I was about 12. You know, back when you could clobber your brothers and sisters. :):) The best part of baby sitting siblings. LOL
Wishing all a beautiful Sunday. The sun is shining once again here, and I am loving it. XO

It rained all day yesterday and most of the evening too. The sump pumps came on and are still running. Water is standing everywhere. There was flood warnings till 4:30 this morning. That was just for our county. Many more are still under warnings. I am hoping for some dry weather. I hate to even say this, but the mosquitoes are already out. I do not see much outdoor activity with out wearing some kind of repellent. I am not crazy about that.
Wishing all of you a good Saturday. Be safe. XO

My daughter got herself a couple of bags full of fancy buttons and sewing trims. Right up that girl's alley. She purchased a metal scrolled fire screen. So pretty. Kathy says she is putting it in her flower garden. That will be cute.
Hope all of you are getting ready for a wonderful fun filled weekend. June is slipping by my friends. Let us enjoy all this good summer time. XO

Ted had to run to get his meds and some oil and a filter for his truck. Then we will be trimming again. We may get to the actual trunk of the fallen part today. Then I think our neighbor may have to help , because the trunk is leaning on the remaining part of the tree. Too dangerous. Professional tree trimmers are really charging right now, when people need so many trees trimmed or cut down. We will keep this hard wood to burn. There will be holes in the yard to fill and seed, I am sure.
Hopefully we will be finished this week on this cutting, hauling and stacking. Wishing all of you a fun day. That would be a "no cutting trees day to me right now " :):)

Today Ted and I got to that hickory tree we lost. I finally had to call it quits for me. Too hot and I took a shower, made tea and had Ted take two breaks . The neighbor man said we could put all our limbs on his back lot's burn pile. So I went to his house and raked up all the apples that blew off his trees. Oh my goodness that was more than a wheelbarrow of apples. So my arthritic ankles are done for today.
Hope all you fellows had a wonderful Father's Day. XO

Ted and I will have plenty of work this coming week. Of course he will save the hickory wood for burn ...maybe around February . It has to season.
Hope all of you are safe and faired well through the storms. XO

Kathy is a crafter and loves recycling old things into something useful or pretty. She also makes jewelry and can sew out of this world. She's been sewing for years. Actually made her own wedding dress years ago. She and her DIL have that in common...they both love fashion and sewing. If I buy anything interesting I will post a photo.
Wishing all a good Saturday . XO

That was a lot of picking up sticks and bending over, doing squats......and that was after I did an hour of Zumba Silver in my daughter's class , she's the instructor. It was the first time I have tried that class . I was sweating like mad when I was finished. I told some of the ladies, "Jump into the car and roll down the window and I'll drive us all around with our heads hanging out." Quick cool down. Just kidding them of course. Angie did a cool down stretch period for the class.
Wishing all of you a great Friday. Be safe. XO

Today is always a long day for me. So I am planning on taking things out of my closet and donating. It's been needing it for a long time. It I take out a dozen things that is a far as I normally get in cleaning closets. Maybe if I get photos of the donations , I'll do better. LOL. Wish me luck.
Hope all of you have a good day. XO
