Sunny Sunday

Enjoying the sun and some pool fun. Trying to
stay cool in this humid weather.

Next we are off to garden.

Jennifer took this shot of Mom, gardening with
my Tim's(never too hot for coffee). My flower
garden isn't doing as well as I'd like due to such
dry conditions. I am watering like crazy trying to
keep them alive and thriving.


My beautiful little helper. When Jillian is having
her afternoon naps Jennifer and I usually garden
or do some big girl crafts such as beading. Beading
is not so much fun with Jilly-Bean, she thinks anything
that resembles a skittle or smartie should go in her mouth
or up her nose.
Monday is probably going to be a productive day for the Man Room, I believe the walls for the frost footings are going to be poured, then dirt will filled in when they are set. So the backhoe babysitter will be back(Mommy will be drinking a hot coffee ,yahoo).Who knew a yellow mighty machine would be so entertaining, Jillian will actually stand still for twenty minutes!! If I had known this I would started construction in June!!

Your pictures are lovely. And I would like to come over please. The photo of your girl with the hat on, is so perfect. Serene.
And if the angle was better, I could look down your top in the gardening pose. Sigh.
Better luck next time.

Somehow (?) when I was changing my site around I missed placing you back in your position. Sorry I have missed all the activity at your house. Love the new addition...... Dh will be the envy of the neighborhood.

First of all...it is never to HOT for coffee...I learned that living on the East coast. Secondly, get that picture of your cutie in a frame...she's beautiful.
When M was little I could use construction sites as a carrot for good behavior. We would do drive bys and some times if the site was closed for the evening we would sneak in and go 'touch' the huge machines. Big tractors ROCK!

I need a backhoe over yonder way...unfortunately only INSIDE reno's this year.
Beautiful shots of you and the girls....
How is your kitchen coming? Or should I ask?

RIGHT. They like to put stuff up their nose. God, I need to be taking notes or something.

Beautiful pics. I wish I had a garden to speak of that needed watering.

Put one ice cube on each flower in the root area in the afternoon. As the ice melts, it will give them a little extra "drink."

Or you could just put the ice in a cocktail and the hell with it ;)

Beautiful pictures, just great. Oh the coffee thing, I think even if I were in a bath house in Calcutta I would need my coffee.

I saw it in a nuddie flick once.

A little Miracle grow on those tomatoes?

Jenny is so beautiful. Momma is hot hot hot.

Just had to tell you that your comment on my last post CRACKED me up... I suffer this same fate, as I imagine most women do that haven't had "jobs"!

Ms. Dragonfly said...

PS just to tantalize you, yes my pet... I DID work at Timmy's.

Steffie B. said...

What lovely pictures! You seem to find great ways to have fun!
Can I ask a question? I have been offered a job in the city near you (L) do you think it is a good place to raise kids? are there good adoption links/communities?
My email is aspecialfamily AT yahoo DOT com
Thanks so much!
