Howdie! Well our house is in a bit of disarray as we have moved several things around this weekend. So I am unable to upload pictures for at least another week since they are all on the other computer which isn't hooked up yet.

We had a crazy weekend, though it turned out very enjoyable in the end.

On Friday we had baseball team pictures and were supposed to have a game, but a huge storm rolled in just before starting time, so we had another rain out. That makes 5 I believe. At this rate we will be making up games until September! So we hung out at home and watched "Bedtime Stories" instead which we all enjoyed. I am a big fan of Adam love him or hate him, and I love him!

On Saturday I went to a Red Hat Society luncheon with my Mother-in-Law. Two of my three sisters-in-law were there which was nice. I don't see them as often as I should. We actually had a great time. The food was nice and the dessert was to die for. I had Creme Brule'.
I don't get too many opportunities to get dress up and go out, so it was very refreshing.
When I got home however.....I walked in the front door and the first thing I see is three large holes in the wall! My son and Hubby were standing at the top of the stairs with stupid grins on their faces. They knew they were in trouble!
My dear Hubby decided to rearrange the house while I was out. He had tried to move our rather bulky couch downstairs....By Himself! It got stuck in the stairwell leading to the basement and apparently in the wall too.
So we spent part of Sunday trying to begin repairs.

We also had a Cub Scout picknic Sunday. So our day wasn't all work. That was so fun. The Dads and the boys had three legged races, sack relays, and tug o' war. It was a blast.

When we got back for that, I needed some time away from all the mess inside so I decided to finally get the flowerbed ready for planting once and for all.
Jarred helped me get the last of the weeds out and we added some good organic dirt to the mix.
It actually looks better already.
We had to take a trip to the hardware store for drywall and paint so I decided to pick up a few perennials to fill in until the seeds I have get going.
I bought a large correopsis, a couple of Lantana, several of something that looks like carnations (I can't remember the name) and another plant I have never seen. It has a cluster of pink and purple variegated blooms. I'll post a picture later. I may go back for more of it if it does well.
By the time we got back it was too late to get those in the ground, but I will try to tomorrow.

All in all the weekend started out very stressful, but I think we actually accomplished a lot.
I think that's the way it should feel.

I also bought two new patterns this weekend to try, hopefully soon. Like I needed any more! They looked really comfy, cute, and easy so I was sold. One is a simple sundress and the other is what seems to be a very flattering and easy blouse. Both are sutable for any fabric, which I like, and I thought I could make a few of each. Add it to the list I guess. :)

Sigh........time to relax.....until tomorrow! Another week begins.

Hope you have a good one!!
