Hi my fellow crafty ones,
This week we have accomplished a lot and had a lot of fun. We had a wonderful visit from our friends from NC. Our friends from FL planned on coming but they had an unexpected business trip. 🙁 When our friends visited we went to a local arts and seafood festival. It was very good. There was so much that I wanted to buy. I only bought a handmade wind chime. My friend, Fannie, bought one, too. They look totally different. Mine had an ocean theme and hers was a cat. The food was excellent. Local restaurants came with their yummiest.
We played ping pong. My hubby loves ping pong and I found a table at a garage sale the weekend before. It has to stay in the garage but folded up it doesn’t take too much room. I am going to try and improve my game – add a little spin to the ball. 🙂
We had a bbq. It was good but too much meat and not enough sides. That is my opinion. But I love all the side dishes.
On Sunday we went to Savannah so they could see River Street. We ate more seafood. After the tour they had to leave to make their trek home.
After we got home from Savannah, Brad and Tim finished the skateboarding grind box. They have talked about this project for a long time and worked on it for a few weeks. Now it is finished except it needs protection (paint) and some wheels to make it easier to move. It is HEAVY! Tim (and a few neighborhood kids) gave it a try. They still have some practicing to do.
So, before I quit uploading pics I wanted to post a picture that my grandson drew. My son took a cell phone picture of it and sent it to me.
On Monday Brad went to Vegas to a geek (I mean technical) convention. He gets home tonight. 🙂 We had gutters put on our house – finally. We have been talking about needing gutters since we started looking at this house. Also, more boxes have been unpacked. 🙂 Things are shaping up.
Hope you have a great weekend. We are going to see Brad’s bro and his family. They are great people and a lot of fun! Can’t wait!
