Progress and Fun

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!

God bless!

  1. Wow, such a pleasure being in your blog~ vivid description made me feel like we went back in time visiting you guys again! I love all the pictures~ hope you have a great trip to see Brad’s brother and his family! Have a great weekend~

  2. Looks like Tim has a new buddy. Maybe a future skateboarder. Jensen is styling in those shades and cool t- shirt. Brad has the best piggy back rides ever. Only a few lucky favorites get to ride. What a fun looking store. All kinds of goodies in there I bet. Cute name too. Such a happy and fun family you had come to visit. Hope you all get to see each other soon. Love Ethans drawings. He and Tim need to get together and make some art. The box looks strange, but to a skateboarder is must be really fun. What a fun weekend.

  3. OH YEAH that pumpkin! How would you like to carve that thing for Halloween? I would be afraid of falling in and drowning in all the seeds.
