Weekend Recap

This weekend was pretty much a wash as far as the Strawberry Fest goes. I decided at around 6:30AM not to go after I turned the weather channel on and saw what was in store for the day. Downpours all day long, does not make for a great craft show! Upon speaking to Nancy and telling her what I had decided I ended up back in bed for an hour. The night before I got to bed at around 1:00 AM and then got up at 5:30 AM to start loading things into the truck. I am very disappointed that I did not attend the fest. I was really looking forward to it and also hanging out with my pal, Nancy of Round Rabbit . What a bummer!!!
So needless to say I was hanging out all day with no energy to speak of, icing and heating my knee and reading Confessions of a Shopaholic. Cute book...and movie comes out tomorrow. I'll get through the book before I catch the movie. So...again, seriously nothing on accomplished on Saturday!
Sunday...Happy belated Father's Day to all you Dad's out there. I didn't get a chance to post anything but we spent the day just hanging out. Todd and Graydon got up and went to a motorcycle race where our neighbors Grandson came in 2nd. I guess it was a complete mud bath and they came home covered. I on the other hand, ran to the studio to unload a glaze firing and did a couple of things. When I got home I loaded up some pottery orders and delivered them to friends for teacher gifts. When I got home Todd had mowed the lawn even though the rain had left standing water all over the yard, but if he hadn't, we would have had to hay it, it was so long. Todd's parents came over for dinner and we just enjoyed the evening.
Here is my veggie garden I have told you all about. It is finally coming along nicely, although you can't really see but there is tons of water in it. I tried to bail out the potatoes yesterday but the ground is so full of water that it just seeped back in. To the left of the pic is beans, tomatoes and peas. To the right are more tomatoes, potatoes and zucchini. On the far end are more squash, corn, cucs, toms, pumpkins and tons more stuff. I am happy that the garden is starting to flourish although I did go out there yesterday and something pulled some plants out....Ugh!

While Graydon was swinging on his swing, a chickadee baby flew out of the birdhouse smack right into the chickens house. He was so stunned that I was able to pick him up and hold him for while. The concerned look on Graydon face is because he was afraid to hold this little baby in fears that he would hurt him. I just love chickadees....their so cute! I wanted to keep this little guy forever, especially when he didn't want to leave my hands.
After putting him on the pine tree the mom immediately found him and off they went together...
thanks to the baby for the wonderful experience!

And here is my almost 10 year old who never gets tired of his swing!!
Thank goodness, stop growing up too fast!!

Hi Danielle,
You take the most beautiful photos, you really have talent for that also. The garden looks great! I love the bird photos. Ever though about selling those? Not that you need something else on your plate. :))) Hugs!
