Some of My Weekend

Finally, on Saturday, we had some nice, sunny weather so I went outside and did some weeding. I was unable to get at it last year so I had a much quack grass it was hard to find the flowers.  The flower bed that I was working in has to be dug up and redone. I was going to rent a small tiller but hubby says he gets to do it. I can't, I have no doubt that he can, it's a small area....but WHEN will he get it done????
Mid afternoon my grandson called and the boys wanted to come over, It was nice day so I said yes. We went to the park for a while and I got roped into playing foursquare (the normal way). When grandpa got home from golfing he picked up broasted chicken from the deli (yum) for supper After we finished eating he took the boys to the park. It is the school playground across the street from our house. He lost the game of funnel ball so he ended up walking another block to the Uni-mart gas station and buying each boy a treat. He took J's 2 brothers home and the rest of the evening was uneventful. 

actually being quiet and playing a game

When I looked out of the window this morning this is what I saw. 
Do you see it?
Look at the sidewalk.....part of it is wet. Hmmmmm
Looks like a sprinkler, it's not. We seldom water.
Moisture dripping from the leaves? Nope, there is a big tree next to this birch and the sidewalk under it is dry.
I guess we had a small shower in our front yard.

Can you say fog?
We live next to Lake Michigan and have had some very foggy days.
This is what main street looked like this morning. 

Better weather is predicted for later in the week. Woo Hoo! I have more weeding to do. And hubby is power washing the deck.

Have a great week!


  1. Beautiful boys and I love the story of grandpa with them. Don't you love those power washers ? Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. Sounds like a fun adn relaxing weekend. I can't wait to have stories to tell about grandchildren some day! The deck is looking fantastic! It's amazing what a pressure wash can do for a place! Have a wonderful week...:)
