The Fruits of my Labor Day


It was a busy day around CC's Place

Early to rise allowed me to work outside
Before it got TOO HOT
(109 today)
I was able to clean up the lawn area

Bagged up 5 bags of 
Weeds, pine needles, grass and other debris
That has landed in the yard after the monsoon


By 10 am it was too hot to stay outside
But I did go back out and hose down the entire patio

Once the weather cools down a bit
The little's will be able to play outside again
Their bikes are just waiting to be ridden
 

Yep,
It's a big patio with not much flare
Bulk trash pick up is this week
So I put all of my worn out, ripped up chairs
Out by the curb last night
They were gone in 20 minutes
Someone has A LOT of work ahead of them
 

I don't have much left out here now
But I'm hoping the tooth fairy will drop 
Some new patio furniture by while I sleep
 

While inside
I got 7 loads of laundry done
Washed, dried, folded, hung and put away

Linens are fresh and I will be ready for a good nights sleep
 

I was also able to shuck the corn
Make a roast
(well, at least put it in the crock-pot)
 

As well as clean the refrigerator out
And cut up the veggies for the week
 

I was able to chat with my mom for a bit
And talk to my bestie for an hour (that Never happens)

So, all I have left to do is
My day 1 Little Black Dress Challenge
(thanks MJ)
And make a bunch of flower pens for the office


I believe my Labor Day was Very Productive

Oh, you are supposed to Rest from your Labor today
Hmmm...I Forgot :)

I hope you enjoyed some fun time 
With family, friends and BBQ's today

K~Bel Turns *4*



It is SO hard to believe
That our Sweet K~Bel 
Is already 4


This little Miss brings such joy to my life
Along with her sisters
 

She totally enjoyed her party
 

I bet you cannot guess where we went ~ LOL
 

One of her special 'cousins'
He's really an uncle once or twice removed
But cousin just works better
 

K~Bel absolutely Loved the gift
That K~Bug made for her 
 


Beautiful Little Miss
 

Beautiful cake created and decorated
By her grandma (not me)
So Talented
 


K~Bel
You are a delight and the most curious little Bel in the world
You both challenge and melt my heart
There is almost nothing in the world I wouldn't do for you
I just won't tell you that ~ YET!!!

Happy 4th Birthday 
My Sweet K~Bel

Baby, She Needs a Makeover


Hi Friends

I found this little beauty about a month ago
And Baby, She Needs a Makeover
But she was on $22 so I couldn't pass her by


I think she's older than I am
So we Know she's old - LOL
 

And, she is well worn
Kind of like me
 

However,
She has such character, charm and she called my name
 

It doesn't show well in these photos
But she has a yellow color to her 
Which does not fit into my home at all

Her cabinet doors have all but broken off
So she'll need lots of TLC
To try to restore her 
 

But she is definitely worth the effort it will take 
To bring her beauty back
Or at least, Make her more presentable

I'm looking forward to working her over
This coming weekend

What are your plans??
Have you found a fun piece to re-make lately??
Do Share!

An Appreciated Respite


A Heartfelt 
THANK YOU
To Dianne
One of our great providers 
At our medical practice
Who graciously invited the staff
Up to her 'cabin' in the woods for the weekend


 Just a little 4500 sq foot place



Enjoyed lunch on the deck
With absolutely Beautiful Views
 


Most of us have 'short' hair
Yet we all put our hair up in ponies
So we could play 'spoons' without hair pulling
LOL
 

Lots of photos were taken :)
 


A Beautiful weekend 
And a fun time with our office staff
I'm so thankful to work with such an Awesome Team

Thanks again, Dianne!!!

My Little Artists


Thursday's at Nana's House
Are Just TOO much Fun!!

Although I miss my K-Bug so much
(back to school)
It is still such a joy
To spend these days with my little's


We decided to make today 
A Paint Day
 

I gave the girl's rectangular paper bowls
 

They just started pouring in the paint
 

And voila
We had messy all over
Couldn't have been more fun :)

One of the beautiful things about being a Nana
Is that you Never sweat the small stuff
Enjoy the Moments
And allow them to be Kiddos!!!

Thanks for allowing me to share my girlies!
