Sun & Sunflowers

RAIN!

Blah!
We needed some rain, 
I'll be the first one to step up & testify to that...

but blah...
gray skies for days here...
I don't know about you,
but that starts to mess with my head! ;)

I need my sunshine!
I think moving to Forks is out for me...







Back last spring we planted a garden.
It has been the most divine thing...
fresh herbs, fat tomatoes, strawberries, peppers...yum!!!

My parents always had a garden,
my grandparents did too.

I decided it was time for us to get serious about having a "real garden" instead of just putting a couple of tomato plants in the backyard landscaping. 
It's been a nice start, but there are lots of things that I am going to change about it next year.


I know I took some pictures of it...Daddy P put a cute little picket fence around it for me, gate & all...so sweet! I'll keep looking for them so I can share. Sneaky E was quite the farmer this spring...


but y'all already knew that! ;)








ha...but anyway...
 
Daddy P tiled up a spot down on our back lot for the garden, 
but I decided I just couldn't get up & down that hill with this jacked up runner's knee,

(I don't remember if I blogged about it, probably not...y'all don't want to read about my wussing & whining over that knee injury...it's still on the mend, SO frustrating)...


since the ground was all tiled up there, I dropped some sunflower seeds in & walked away.


It is beyond fascinating to me how these tiny seeds I planted in early May, now look like this in my backyard!





God's work is just amazing!


It stopped raining for a minute the other day, 
so I ran out to get some pictures of them.
I am so out of practice,
that is ON MY LIST of stuff to work on this fall...
get that camera out & start snapping!!


But here are a few that I liked,
all are edited using Florbella Actions (love them!!)...
 

(seriously out of practice, woof!!)









There is something so bewitching about sunflowers...
they are so, so sassy! ;)




I even got a decent shot of my precious Baby Blue too! ;)

Best.Dog.Ever!
 






It's quiet here this morning...

Daddy P, Miss O & Sneaky E all spent the night on the house boat with Grandma & Poppy. Wussy Big O & his mama had to go home...the boat slightly rocking got to us! My sick, queasy headache was gone by the time we got home...but Big O went right to bed & wouldn't eat a bite. We'll have to rethink our strategy next time. ;)


I'm tickled that I got to spend time with this kid yesterday...love to snuggle with his fuzzy head!




& this water dog!



Whew! 
You couldn't keep him out of the lake!!


Too fun!


************************************* 


I've got my list going this morning...
lots to do before the kids go back to school!!


In the upcoming week I'm going to be talking about ORGANIZING!! I think I might even host a linky party, would any of you guys want to blog about getting organized for school too? I know I need all the help I can get!

And speaking of Back to School...I've been shopping (somehow July feels more like December with all three kids going to school this year). I'll be sharing some deals & coupon codes that I've found!


I'm also going to be blogging about my new SPONSORS!!
Did you notice them up there under my profile?
DO go pay them a visit & say hello, they're awesome!

I'm still chewing on this...
LOVE all these great ideas you have sent me...

Sneaky E has it set in his mind that it's home for a new fish...ah, no?

 


And, I am IMPATIENTLY waiting for my Milk Paint...
it should be here tomorrow or Tuesday...
I am dying to get these chairs painted & recovered!!







I'll keep you posted on that project, it's a big one!


Yippie Skippie!
Have a beautiful Sunday!!
