Yard Work and Garage Work

Michael is determined to get the facing work on the garage finished—he was out there early this morning putting up boards.  Got all the boards up and then he decided to chink the boards—he cut the edges of the boards to make them appear like logs—then caulked between each log with the concrete like substance called chink.  Now it looks like we have a log/rock garage—I have the most talented husband! 

I cleaned our house—it really needed it—and did a little cooking in preparation for Mom and Chuck’s arrival around noon.  We had taco soup and homemade bread for lunch.  Tonight we are having salmon and steaks, baked potatoes and salad.  Rhubarb crisp for dessert—YUM! 

Mom and I did a little yard work this afternoon trimming some of the shrubs damaged in the deep freeze last October—the flower beds look a lot better now.  All of a sudden my flowers have started to blossom, the grass and trees are so green—we have been getting a rain shower every day.

Last night we had dinner at Geoff and Nancy’s with Robyn, Claire, Boo and Terry.  A wonderful evening with good friends.

Grandma fixing the duck Emmi’s duck had an injury so Grandma was repairing the duck—Emmi stood right there the entire time Mom was sewing—she wanted her duck!  NOW!


  1. Boy are you luckt having Emma as small as she is, the life span of a ducky here is about 2-3 weeks before that 100lb Rigg's has the wings and head torn off and the stuffing gone, they are never repairable, he only gets a new ducky now on special occasions. But since that was his first toy when he came to us at 8 weeks old he holds them dear to his heart. Have fun, and be safe out there, Sam & Donna.

  2. I remember what the garage looked like last summer and I can't wait to see picutres of the finished project.

    Enjoy your mom and the visit.

    Hugs to you all.

  3. Janna today is my birthday,are you working on my quilts yet

  4. Neato on the garage... have to see some pics of that too now! And so cute the story of Emmi and the duck repair. I know our Duke disemboweled his favorite stuffed Llama, and I had to restuff it and resew it umpteen times before it finally just fell apart. Now it's a stuffed Lion that is the most favorite toy. He is now 6 years old and acts like a puppy with it. LOL
