August 23

First off- a very big Happy Birthday to my Mom. Her birthday was yesterday but I don't blog on Sunday. So am sending my wishes here today. I hope that you ate lots of cake and that this year coming up is your best year ever! Love you~
If you have been following me, you know that I have been painting our fence. I started over Memorial Day weekend when the kids were still in school. Now the kids are back in school and I was still painting last week. But Huzzah!! I finished painting yesterday. I am doing a happy snoopy dance- as best I can all bruised and battered with painter's elbow that won't let me lift a drinking glass without pain and many itchy bug bites. But I did it! In a way it was like writing a book-long, and hard and painful. I battled rain and blistering heat. Mosquitoes and spiders and toads also made themselves known. Then there were the birds and the squirrels and whatever else that was threatening me with harm from their hidden vantage point in the woods. (I could hear them chattering) Still I did it! Here are the pictures to prove it. Now for a nice cold drink and a long slow swing. Cheers~


  1. Those fences look beatiful, Nancy! Good job. And my Mom's bday is this week too! Friday. My sister's bday is today!

  2. Hi Linda, happy birthday to your Mom and sister! So cool that ours are so close together. :)

    Thanks, the fence was hard work, but worth it. At least it will last a while-unlike housework which can be destroyed in two seconds. lol. Cheers!
