Yesterday we went with the Bates crew to celebrate Sam’s birthday. He chose to go to the Greensboro Science Center which is one of his favorite places to go. This year he was old enough to go on the zipline.
At first, he was a little anxious but he soon forgot about that. He has been wanting to do this since last year when Daniel got to do it.
I love these two pictures. Brother helping brother. Isn’t that what family is all about!
Good morning everyone! For those of you who have been reading my blog for any length of time, you know how much we love this rose bush. When we first moved here 16 years ago, it was already here. It was in need of some love and attention. We have given it that. We worked and worked to get it started climbing up this tree. Now it seems like every year it grows a little higher. We think it is beautiful!
After weeks of no measurable rain at my house, this is a wonderful sight. As I am making this post, I am sitting on our glassed in front porch listening to the sound of gentle rain on our tin roof. Blessings from God!
I have been enjoying my little firepit. It is the perfect size for me. I build a small fire almost every morning to drink my coffee by. I have decided I am a morning campfire girl.
Also a few garden pictures.
I really love how it is started to look. I do have more ideas of things I want to do but it is coming along nicely.
The blueberries bushes are loaded with blueberries. Now if we can just beat the birds to the ripe ones.
A little baby cucumber! We have been enjoying salads, green onions, peas and a few squash from the garden already. I love fresh veggies.
I have watered my garden by hand every day for weeks. I am SO thankful for the rain today. The rain the Good Lord sends always makes everything just jump to life.
So yesterday while we were picnicking and having fun, Dave started this project. This is John Luke’s old gate that keeps him contained in the living room when needed. He is still not super steady on his feet and definitely can’t manage stairs without help. The old one was coming apart so …Dave built him a new one using old decking materials. I got to help him with the middle gate today. I think it looks awesome!Some of his other helpers.Also Daniel made this beautiful shelf for his mom to put flower pots on.He did it all himself including cutting the boards with a hand saw.Great job, Daniel!I hope you all have a good day and God bless.
