Repairs and Gardens

Scott had to pull down the soffits on this section of the roof at the cottage as it was done incorrectly and water was accumulating inside the soffit. He reworked it all and now the roof drains off perfectly... at least in this section.

PIGS AND PETUNIAS!!!
HOWIE!!!!


Gnome and a mug... it's my dream coffee cup!

Greg has taken an interest in gardening and has cleaned out most of the garden beds at the house in Cayce and has nearly every bed planted with something. He has peanuts, watermelons, corn, peppers, and something else that I don't remember. Now if he can keep it weeded and actually get some produce off it I will be so proud of him.


Bernadette really needs a trip in to see the groomer as she is getting raggedy once again and filthy. I think I will take Amelia in too as she seems to enjoy the pampering.

Last Saturday we were down there and mowed the lawn. It really needed it with all the rain we have been having. The chestnut tree really needs to come down as it is loosing bark and I am afraid it will come down on the little shed or the dogs. I was really hoping the power company would take it on down when they came to trim with it showing such obvious signs of it coming down in a storm. OH well.... I will call someone and get it taken down.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Tomorrow is Scott and my 32nd wedding anniversary. We are planning a trip to Hendersonville, NC on Saturday to celebrate. We will just drive up there and check out what ever strikes our fancy or interest.

Sunday Adventure

 On Saturday I made some granola that contained no sweeteners... it was delicious on Sunday morning atop our bowls of strawberries and apples. I plan to make some more soon.

 After breakfast Scott and I decided to walk part of the Swamp Rabbit Trail in Travelers Rest, SC and then we drove around a  little bit in the beautiful countryside. We saw some interesting fungi, flowers and a turtle. It was a nice 2 mile walk for us and we plant to check out more of it again soon.












 And Sunday afternoon I made some flowers out of some of the baby wipes I used for clean up on previous projects. I really like how funky they turned out.
