Greg's Totaled Truck!

MINUS the tree....

Life Goes On

So it's been 4 days since that freak storm came through and caused all that destruction and we are making plans for future projects. Life does indeed go on. So I've been crafting and gardening and ....

An overview
Yellow Squash
Tomato with GOOD LUCK attached - we found this horse shoe when putting the garden in - a reminder that this Development was an Old Plantation at one time.
Another tomato and some bell peppers

Squash blooms are SO PRETTY!
Next post will be an update on our front yard and perhaps some photos of some of the damages our neighbours have suffered - MUCH worse than what we did.

Late Start Tuesday

Well I won't be going into work until 7 this morning as my Boss sent me a text a little after midnight saying she has another flat tire and the earliest anyone would be at the store is about 7:15 AM. I hate going in later in the morning and working later in the day. It gets my meal times and nap times all messed up. And what is really bad is I didn't sleep well last night at all  and feel like I didn't sleep at all... so exhausted this morning.

Yesterday when I came home from work I spotted something quite interesting on the side storm door where we enter the house and just had to take a photo of it before it flew away.
  At first I thought it was just an odd leaf or piece of tree bark but upon closer inspection I realized that it was some type of moth. Quite pretty and unique.

Card with matching envelope that I made for my Niece's High School Graduation.
Saturday I attended a party for my niece, Kayla's High School graduation and had a very nice time. Although I should have had us head home sooner as I had ridden with my sister and her son and we didn't get back to her house until 10 PM and then I had to drive home to my house and me driving after dark can be a bit harry any more. But we all had so much fun it was worth the scary drive home.

Yesterday I had to work in the morning and then came home and helped clean up a bit around the garage so it looks a LOT better out there. I am planning to help Scott and Greg get the garage organized over the next couple weeks and perhaps we will get the new shed started to house Scott's tractor to give him more room in the garage to start building kitchen cabinets. I figure if I help the two of them I will get my new kitchen faster.

I better get off here and get dressed for the day... just made some fresh coffee as Scott's first pot of the day ran funny and there were grounds in it... yick! Had to clean the coffee maker up before I could make some fresh. I'm hoping to have a cup of coffee minus the grounds before I leave this morning.

Pottery Update and some of my crafting

Here are the pots freshly pulled from the kiln a few days later. She had a VERY successful firing... only minor cracks that can be repaired so she was thrilled! She has listed some of the pieces on her Etsy store. You can find them here...
A Purple Skinny Mini made out of card stock.
Some tiny ribbon flowers I made out of 3/8" wide ribbon.
I will be sending the little flowers out with the mini to a gal today and I hope she will like them. Now I have to get busy on a Graduation card as my niece Kayla graduated High School yesterday and today is the party.  I have photos from our walk on Monday that I will share in video form...

So Not feeling myself these days

I've just been feeling all out of sorts and depressed... not sure why just am.  I've started taking some vitamins again in the hopes they will help and Scott and I went for a walk last night and may again tonight. I slept a bit better last night and was glad for that but today my head aches and I am feeling drained. I'm thinking that a weekend at home would do me good. I will have to mail a card to my niece for her Graduation.

Time to cook dinner... but BLAH!

Part 2 of our daytrip...

Beaufort, Frogmore and more Island stops a long our way.

Inside the Tourist Info Center's bathroom - part of the old Armoury.
Scott said he owns this street... see it has his name on it!

The Foolish Frog - Not the GREATEST and I do not foresee a return trip. Sorry!

There were 100's of these tiny crabs
