Time Going by Fast .....

Wow June is flying bye. Keeping very busy working on the house and the garden. David has been working on the master bedroom and master bathroom. New carpet will be laid next Wednesday. We have already pulled up the old carpet (the original carpet) and the padding. All the furniture has been moved out except for the bed which is being moved today. David has repainted the walls and touched up the crown moulding. We just need to paint the baseboard and sweep and it is ready for the carpet. In the bathroom, we have new tile, baseboard and quarter round. We still need to install new faucets and a new light fixture and this room will be done. Yeah !!!!!!!!! This weekend was to be busy but with a code orange air alert I am inside today. I had been invited to a bridal shower at 2 pm and a wedding at 6pm. The wedding is outside so there is no way I can go now.

I have started canning this week.  So far I have 5 pints of bread and butter pickles and 5 pints zucchini relish.  Today I…

This Weekend

Had an interesting weekend. Friday started with some dear friends coming up from Georgia for dinner. We had a delightful time and in two weeks we are going down there to visit. Saturday was my first 49 birthday and it was a relaxing morning. Went to the grocery store for just a few things then stitched. We went to a visitation in Fayetteville, TN in the evening and stopped at Cracker Barrel around Columbia for a late lunch/early dinner. It was awful !! I found saran wrap in my meal. Not good. After we got home around 8:30 we went out to dinner at Camino and had an enjoyable meal. Woke up late for church this morning and then home for the rest of the day. Home Depot is coming tomorrow to measure the master bedroom for carpet. Yeah !!

I am back .....

I am starting to feel a little better and now dh is getting sick again. Wow we just can't get a break. I basically missed the entire month of May. So sad. Just was our 28th wedding anniversary. I can't believe that it has been that long already. We went to Cheekwood in Nashville to walk through the gardens. It is absolutely beautiful. We walked for two and a half hours and still didn't see everything. It was an absolutely amazing day weather wise which really helped also. We ate an early dinner at Ruby Tuesdays and then home for the night. By the time we finally got home my feet had swelled but it was still a wonderful day. Today I am working on this month's budget. Boy is it going to be a tight month. My birthday is next Saturday, thought I don't expect anything since money is tight also David has a workshop on the 4th which he will be on his own for lunch and then another class at the end of the month though it is only half a day. We are hoping to …
