I love this time of year.
It's not too hot yet.
I still have a few weeks until school is out.
Griffy and I can hit the beach just the two of us and it's not crowded.
We've been spending so much time outside...cooking, eating, playing, gardening..even sleeping. The kids slept on the porch the other night. We live on our porch now. Steve and I have our designated chairs...his faces the family room and the honkin tv that still is up here and not in the basement. Anyway, he can watch whatever game is on. Mine faces the yard and these gorgeous lilacs my neighbor cut for me.
I love lilacs. I want some in my yard.
I actually bought 2 lilac shrubs from Costco a few months back.
They were in a box.
I think I was supposed to plant them right away.
I took them out of the box this past weekend and my neighbor and I (the one with the lilacs) almost peed our pants laughing.
Can you see those 2 sticks. Those are my lilac bushes.
What do you think?
Do they have a chance?
Seriously, gardening has never really been my thing.
But I'm trying.
This is Griffy's garden.
We planted tomatoes, peppers and cukes.
Let's see who kills them first..me or the rabbits.
Every year the kids ask for a slip-n-slide.
Every year I buy one.
They are on it for about 5 minutes.
Then it sits there and kills the grass.
I really don't have a lot of rules in the house.
But one of my favorites is this one..
as soon as that candle is lit
the kitchen is closed.
So if someone is hungry
they need to make it
and clean up
