Hello friends in blogland!
I had a very busy weekend and have missed out on some blog parties I wanted to participate in; but alas, sometimes real life gets in the way of blogging! :-)
My youngest sister started a new job and has asked me to babysit my two nephews for the next few Fridays during her orientation for her new job; Fridays are usually my day off, when I do most of my housework, gardening,errands, appointments, blog pictures and tablescape creations, because I work full time.
At any rate, I'm happy to help out my family when I can and I will just have to manage my free time a little differently for a few weeks.
I did want to post some pictures of a couple neat things acquired recently at rummage sales.
I also spent quite a bit of time outside today; after over a week of nearly straight rain and temperatures in the 40s and 50s (unusual for May, even here!), it was finally sunny enough and nice enough to work outside. I planted my new lilac and some new hosta in the shade bed. Erik got the hose and hose cart out of the garage so I could spray wash my Adirondack chairs. I need to touch up the paint on them in a few places and then I'm going to coat them with Thompson's Water Seal which will protect the wood and the paint.
I want to make some pretty outdoor pillows for my chairs also.
I will post pictures of my gardens as things progress.
My climbing roses will soon be blooming. One of them I believe to be a William Baffin climbing rose, the other is a mystery.
Thanks for stopping by!
