An Impressionistic Take on Our Overgrown Lawn
An Impressionistic Take on Our Overgrown Lawn

Today it must be yard work.  I woke up feeling yard work calling….exterior decorating.  While in meditation this morning the term interior decorating came to mind.

The yard had become a jungle while we were gone.  So, the first task was to mow, after a day of rest from the trip.  I so love spending time with my grandson, but a toddler can be exhausting.  And, I was totally exhausted.  I guess it was also all the walking and hiking too.  My daughter and I walked together the morning we left.  It was all I could do to keep up with her.

Yesterday I discovered the special effects that you can create on Iphoto.  Yes, after all this time I figured out a few things on the computer.

We have a day outing.  We take Wynn to the Remedy Diner.  He loves the fake crab, avocados and fries from my plate.  It’s all vegan.securedownload

Chris has the unreal hot dogs.securedownload-1From there we go to Pullen Park.

Before coming home it’s Starbucks where it’s time for a clothes change as well as fraps.  Wynn had orange juice, even though we texted a picture to his mom with Chris’s drink in front of him.  She freaked, exclaiming you are not giving him coffee!  No, we were just kidding.20130523-092049.jpg

After wanting to stay in bed for most of the day on Sunday I am revived to go see the new Star Trek movie.  Ok, clean off the porch is also on the agenda for the yard work.  The dogs had kicked a flower pot over while we were away.20130523-091953.jpg

  1. The cat would really like you to continue thinking that “the dogs” did it but I can tell who the real culprit is…;) Kudos on the hard work and the solid time spend with that gorgeous little grandson (and on making your daughters heart stop…not an easy feat these days! 😉 ). There is NO place like home 🙂

  2. Lovely child (and I would have sent that photo, too! Payback, I say!)
    The photo art is great; you’d have fun with Photoshop, I think . . . ~ Linne

  3. I so would have done the same thing with the coffee picture, but I do things like that all the time so my kids would never have believed I was serious. Toddlers are both fun and exhausting aren’t they?

      1. Nope, we be small town folk…we look up and follow tons of recipes. Oh man! It can be hard, for sure, when you’re the only ones. Pretty sure that’s the case with hubs and me, too!
