I guess everyone has been pretty busy this last week...

me,tooooooo!
we did get some big winds and lots of rain this week...

and all that thunder and rain has sure made things grow...

we got 2.2 inches yesterday afternoon...
and some good winds...
part of the corn was laid over...

so we started on this first thing this morning...
while the ground is still wet...
easier to pull weeds that way...

we pulled the driveway, too...
around the big shrubs out front and the fire hydrant...

DH and I took a drive...
he took today off for me today...
this is the park...

and the parking area to fish at the lake...

its up some...

so since he has today off, we are playing it by ear...

if you look close you can see the heron that got lost and lives here now...

and we stopped by the pool...
for ice cream...
they close on Sunday cuz school starts next Monday!

volunteers showed up here at the park this morning to work on it...
new gravel has been spread...

there's a new rail road light at the old depot...

my new shoes...
for my birthday...

this was beginning to be a tripping hazard...
so when we got back, I sat down, took off my shoes so I wouldn't get them messed up, and started pulling up bricks...

here's the root ball that was pushing it up...

I turned 50 today...
Craig is in Paris picking up whoppers for my birthday...
think I will take DH shopping sometime this weekend to Walmart...

more yard work, too...
everything from the deck is drying out and spread all over the place...
it all got a good soaking...
some of its in the washer, too...
so, I may not post much more this weekend...
if I don't you know I'm BUSY!

oh- Happy Happy Birthday, Tete! I knew your birthday was sometime this month but I hadn't remembered when. Love your new shoes they are soooo YOU!

It looks like you got a lot done around there- that root ball was a big job!

Our schools don't start until after Labor Day this year- so the kids get a nice long summer for a change.

I hope you have a wonderful day/night with your DH. xo Diana
