This week was busy….Picking tomatoes, catching frogs and Sweet Sixteen..


Picked a bunch of different kinds of tomatoes from my garden….


Our frog is still hanging out in the backyard…


Otis was putting his paw on top of the frog and saying “Hey, stop hopping…so we can play”

(sorry, I couldn’t get a clearer picture….but, you get the idea”

Don’t worry , the frog did not get hurt !



Lastly…..Megan turned Sweet Sixteen.

We are hosting a sleep over, this Saturday.

We will have about 10 teenagers…

Pray for me….

I will post about that experience later…..

Where in the world has Kammy been ???




See what happens in one summer ??

The pup grows up…

I worked overtime all summer long (and it has not stopped).. working 40 hours, commuting and overtime – kicks ones behind !

I have spent just about every weekend cleaning and purging stuff. Do any of you watch – Hoarders – on TV ?  No, I am not a hoarder – but, I had a shed and studio that looked like I was. I

also watched a bunch of episodes where these women just shop and shop…..sound familiar to anyone ? Kinda scary how it can get out of control.

I joined a gym (because I have all this time on my hands, LOL !) I can do 300 ab crunches !

The only decorating I have done, has been on Farmville (which I soon will be giving up to blog again). Such a big time waster. I do have such a pretty farm…..

I haven’t spent much time with my camera or blog – which makes me sad – cause I miss you guys.

My Grandma reads my blog…..My Grandma is 88 years old and Ultra Kool ! Hi Grandma !!

No Otis, you are not allowed in the house !



Every tree in the backyard got watered and Otis discovered MUD !

He promptly jumped in the horse trough after romping in the mud.

Nope, not allowed in the house until you have a bath…..

Hope everyone has a MUD FREE week…

My garden and Their garden….






The first four pictures are of my garden.

As you may or may not know, I live across the road from an organic farm……

They grow tons of different kinds of vegetables and plant all summer long. 

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of their garden…..





I love a field of wildflowers…this one is just down the road from our home….




I am loving my raised beds. I have had to pick maybe 3-5 weeds total each week.

Next year Hubby will be building me more !

Do you like him like me (enough to get down to his eye level and take pictures ?)

I forgot that I got this last year……


I almost forgot that I bought this Ice Cream Freezer at the thrift store last fall for twenty bucks.

Brand new ! It has the hand crank and an electric motor…..

I googled the price on my smart phone while at the store (do you ever do this ?) to find the retail price and they are at least sixty bucks.

Do you have a great easy recipe to share ? Other then the freeze aisle at the grocery store ??

I haven’t killed my garden.

I do not have a green thumb……I like faux plants – because I can’t kill them.

My garden has been extremely easy to grow , here are a few pictures. It is a

We put the beds in an old dog run. It is all fenced in and perfect to keep dogs out.

Still Tweaking the new computer ….


Drats… My fonts are gone, my Windows Live Writer doesn’t look the same, I have to download my pictures completely different ( I am not whining….LOL….)

Getting use to a new computer takes time..

I am going on vacation in 2 weeks and have loads to do !

Summer is my favorite season.

I had to slip in a picture of Otis – look how big he is getting…did I mention that he loves water ?

Building raised garden beds on the cheap..

Building raised garden beds on the cheap …

My hubby and I came up with a reasonable way to make a raised garden bed.  Here is what you will need:

9 landscape timbers ( we bought ours at Home Depot ) on sale for  2 bucks each.

Large nails

Miter saw

1. Cut three of the timbers in half – they are eight feet long.

2. Miter cut the corners and nail two shorts to two longs – you will have planters measuring 8x4 approx.

3. Nail the first rectangle to the second rectangle, to the third rectangle.

4. Add dirt ( a rusty ol tractor makes this real quick !)

5. Plant away !

My hubby used some pc tubes to make a sprinkler system.
