A Beautiful Mess

Today is Friday, May 7, 2010. It was a gorgeous 87 degrees today! Cooling down now, but not cold.

Our first day home has been a busy one. Take a look at the jungle we have! It is a beautiful mess, but our mess. Son #5 actually grabbed the mower this morning and was able to get a little more than half of the yard cut. The pool, just as I thought is green. So threw some shock and baking soda in there and started the pump. Big pump not working, hooked up the small pump and ordered another big one. Should be here the middle of next week. Pool should be ready by tomorrow night to use!

The clothes lines have been loaded all day. Will get the sheets and towels done tomorrow. It is a beautiful sight to see my clothes on those lines and not in a dryer. Not to mention wrinkle free. Got the stores back on line and made a sale! Whoot! So will get that order ready to ship in the morning.

Going to try very hard to get to the farmers market tomorrow. Hoping Sunday to get the chicken trailer made. I am so looking forward to this project. Mama still thinks I am crazy, well mama the apples don't fall far from the tree. Thinking four chickens would be great.

Well let me tell you about Doc. Here I was thinking that he was not liking the whole RV thing. When we got home, George had to push him out, he could have cared less about the yard, right into the house he went. Tried to get him to come outside today and he looked at me like, you have got to be kidding me, it's hot out here. Went out to do his business and then knocked to be let back in. He went back to young sons bed and went to sleep. He has become a lazy house dog in less than three weeks. How does this happen? I was feeling so bad about him being couped up.
Well look at that, he has made his way to the living room to look out the window. geesh......

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
