Beauty in the Common things: laundry almost finished
Listen in: washer and dryer running...tv off!
Dinner Plans: I feel like soup
Plans for the day: finish the laundry, shampoo carpets, and finish sorting the mountain of handmedowns from the attic
My dear sweet DD6 is sick. Yesterday she was lethargic and laid in bed all day. Today after a decent amount of antibiotics and tyenol she feels all better! Why is it that they do not understand...sick means sick for more than 24 hours. She is so frustrated that she can't play out side.
so on Father's day Brent and I worked on cleaning up the backyard. I want it to be a place the kids want to play. Not that they Have to play there. I would like to add a tether ball and a big yard umbrella. Little chrismas lights along the fence to make it pretty at night. I plan to make these candle holders out of mason jars. So it will look magical. My banana trees are getting a little bigger everyday. The ones on the side of the house are really big! I once saw this really cute hop scotch that was made out of cement pave stones and painted very Mary Englebriet. I love her stuff so I think I may have to try that this year too.
I have a list of things I want to do this summer:
Go to a drive in movie
Take Braeden to the beach
Take the girls to a real rodeo
Eat Icecream I made myself on the back porch
Attend one festival somewhere
Pick berries somewhere or peas
Put up peas, peaches, and green beans
Make strawberry jam
Have a girls weekend away from my kids to scrapbook
make garden stones with the kids hand or foot prints in them
have snow cones with the kids
get a small pool and fill it with sand for them to play in ( make a cover to prevent the sand being used as a sand box!)
go to an outdoor movie somewhere
go to a state fair
go pole fishing
....to be continued at a later date!
Blessings of friendship
