another busy morning...

and another cloudy day...
look at all those maple trees coming up in the corn field!

our flower beds would look like this if we didn't weed often and pull the maple twirlers out as much as we can...

DH had this all cut up yesterday, but its too wet to pull the truck back there yet...
we have taken 2 loads to the dump and it looks like a couple more to come...

just went out this morning to dig some lemon balm for the wheel barrow...
and one thing led to another...

so this over grown monster was tackled...
we cut out a mulberry...
by this photo most of it is cut out already...

and we potted some more lemon balm for the deck area...

there were so many trees coming up in this...

but we pulled weeds and grass and trimmed up the remaining sapplings...

and it started shaping up...

so while DH and I finished out there...
I sent Craig off to dead head the iris...

there is still more work to do out here...

but it needs to dry out a bit first...

right now, there are day lilies, yucca, lemon balm and lavender in here...
and we left the maple and walnut trees...

we caught up with Craig out here...

and the peonies are just wonderful this year...

and while we were at it, I thought some limbs needed to be removed out here...

so we worked on that and then took a walk...

came back and Craig had loaded the limbs out here into the truck...

so we cleaned up as it started drizzling...

grabbed the keys and camera...

and headed out for the dump...

we had a full load...

our water tower...

and the lake...

the fire trucks went out while we were doing clean up and we found where they went on our way back home...
we saw a round hay bale on fire...
not sure if there was a shed there or not...
our neighbor had taken off pretty fast right before we heard the trucks...
he is a volunteer for our FD and this was his uncle's house...

the clouds were still hanging around today...

we have a very good fire department and ambulance crew now...


we came back home and ate pancakes for lunch...
threw a meat loaf and baked potatoes in the oven...
later on, I took a nap...
;)
one of my favorite things...
and then I got up and ate again...
doesn't get much better than today...
things done, rest and good food...
sharing it with my guys...

hope you had a good and restful day...
;)

Tete- Wow- You guys got a LOT done!! I am amazed. How wonderful that you have the helpers you do. I wish I could get MyHero to help out a bit outside. He is not much at that kind of work. Your yard is looking beautiful. You are way ahead of us with blooming. My irises are just starting to bud out and the tulips (the few the rabbits didn't get) just finished blooming.

I have so much left to do----oh-well, it will be there when I get to it- xo Diana

Everything is looking wonderful at your home... My hubby's been doing some work outside too... I'm still stuck inside......working on the bathroom for WEEEEEEKS. I swear, every, single day I think I can finish......but it just keeps going on and on. I'm pooped!

Huggies,

Your place is beautiful! I have a husband and two grown sons also and my guys are not quite as helpful outside as it seems yours are. They will do things if I ask...and ask..:) I love your blog and am a fellow Christian and your latest follower...
