Here comes the weekend....



We had a wonderful day here on Thursday...we finally put all the washed winter clothes
away and brought most of the "summer" clothes up. I seem to be missing a few bins, but things got shifted around
with "the great flood of April 2007", so I know they are there somewhere.
Princess helped me by playing while I put away and carried piles of clothes and curtains up from the basement
almost all day.We finally hung her "summer" curtains in her room and ours are sitting on my hope chest waiting.
I cleared the floor of doll "stuff" long enough to vaccum the living room and then our FREE mulch was delivered.
I was so excited! True, it's not the pretty kind for the flower beds, but it will do just fine to cover any areas prone to weeds around the edges of the garden and play areas so I don't have to do that every other day.
Princess was happy to see our friends stop over at the end of our day, and we Moms watched the kids play with bubbles and sand while the Dads hauled load after load of mulch around.
We let them stop for pizza and beer on the patio under the shade of the cedar trees.
Lovely end to a day full of hard work. There is still mulch to haul, so I'm off to get some done while
Princess sleeps in a bit. We have relatives coming in this weekend for the Memorial Day ceremony
here. My Grandmother will be accepting an posthumous award for my Grandfather and then the family will all head over here for a picnic. It's supposed to rain, so we'll probably be crowded inside.
Here are some pics from Yesterday, I will get to the crafts we did with turtles in the next couple of days.
I keep forgetting to photograph them.

Wow, your garden is incredible.

I have left a couple of comments before, but they seem to go poof when I hit send.

I'd say to have fun, but I've been down that road myself and will be again soon. Maybe wishes for quick recovering muscles might be more welcome!

So glad you are getting so into summer!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
