Precious Sunshine

The second day of sunshine... Woo Hoo !!!! We will be off this afternoon about 1:30 or so to attend a baseball tournament to cheer on our beloved Tinora Rams High School team... We attended a game last night also... My laptop is back home and seems to be feeling quite chipper after his clean out...
I finished another cushion made from grain sacks for the change out of the benches on the front porch... now we just have to brush on the poly protection on the wicker of the bench itself... I gave that assignment to Tom... I seem to be moving somewhat away from the fuzzy and frills but still love some small doses of them...
We have rain in the forecast for Monday again but I am hoping by mid-week I can finally get the decks like I would like to have them for this summers months... It will be about time to pull back the cover on the in ground pool and open it up also... It takes about 2 weeks for the process to clean it up and we always have it ready by Memorial Day...
It seems like old times to be able to walk out in the yards... It is truly amazing what a joy such a small act can bring ones self... How delightful...
I need to bid you all a great weekend and head out side to the front porch and change the water in my little vintage china water fountain... Tom was up on the roof earlier cleaning out the eave spouts from all the tree droppings and threw all to the ground... Below the little china water fountain became a target.... Oh my the outside elements are always creating work but I will be thankful I am able to go and clean the fountain even if it is at a slower pace than years past.... Enjoy your weekend.... I think a hot dog browned to a golden brown on the grill and some home-made french fries sounds like a great lunch before attending a ball game... so I am off.

I just love your blog! It's so nice to see another blogger over the age of 25! I really like the peaceful birds chirping too on your audio track, it's a refreshing change from some of the blaring music I hear on other blogs sometimes! Come by and visit me soon!
