Today was a productive and fun Saturday. I slept in until 9 this morning and it felt wonderful. My daughter Jennifer called me soon after I got up to come see her garage painted. So off I went, stopped at Macdonalds for sausage, egg and cheese first. She was up at the crack of Dawn painting...wish I had that energy. I did manage to get my lawn cut , did some watering and trimmed some bushes. Things are looking pretty good. Anyway, I took some pictures of her yard to share with you..she is very good at putting things together. Isn,t it cute? She lives in a Sears home. Her house behind the fence ( her driveway) After yard work Norm and I took of on the bike and got some riding in. Perfect end of the day. Time to call it a day. ~~Earlene~~

bad dog

I am dog sitting this week. On the way home from work and picked up a new toy for my grand dog Reese. SHE HAD IT APART IN 5 MINUTES!!! No more soft toys for her. And I got her BIG bones to chew on. Gone in 20 minutes. She is a very sweet dog and that makes up for it. Happy Hump Day ~~Earlene~~

I have been on VACATION

Same cottage we stayed at last September. Enjoyed it much more with the hot weather we had. We left Wednesday on the motorcycle at 1:00 with beautiful weather here but glad I took my winter coat because by the time we got to Oscoda we were freezing! Don't didn't last long. We had beautiful weather the rest of the time. My SIL and I were able to go swimming in Lake Huron. One night we had bad storms but were gone by the time we were out and about. Making S'Mores around the campfire our first night. The beach...beautiful and private....on Lake Huron. My sister Sharon and her husband Jim. Pancakes and sausage anyone? We had a great time cooking and eating together at the cabin. We went bicycle riding and played lots of cards. Garage saling on Saturday while the guys went to a Motorcycle Rally/Show. My youngest brother Warren making sure the fire is going strong. God Bye for now. I have to get laundry done before heading back to work tomoorow and catch up on some other chores. Hope everyone had a great weekend!! ~~Hugs~~ ~Earlene~

It is so beautiful this morning! I decided to hang laundry since didn't get the chance to yesterday. It won't take long to dry today. I feel so lucky I have such a great view to look at while I am out there working. Open fields and
blue sky...Ahh! I wanted to show you how my garden grows too. I am so excited...looks like it is taking off pretty good.

Pretty shadows and sunlight
Love the purples in this Lobelia
Old P Pot Hope you enjoy my pics for today. I am off to finish staining boards in my kitchen. I HATE staining but will be worth it in the end. Crank up the music and off I go! ~Blessings! Earlene
