Talk about working in the trenches


On one of my *staycation* days last week, Mickey asked me to go along on a job..







I immediately fell in love with the old house...and all its charm....The owners are living in the house behind this property while they renovate this one. Wood floors, finished basement and 4 fireplaces...



It had ME written all over it....Except its in town....Noooooooooooooo!! I have to be in the country..Can we move it????

Mickey had already been here previously and dug the ditch and then the plumbers did their thing and after the inspection Mickey was called to back fill the HUGE ditch....Look!!!




Its one deep trench!!!





Just another day at the office for Mickey tho....


I got dizzy just trying to look down in it ....( I inherited that stuff from my dad...)




All I can think of with this picture is I am SO glad he knows what he is doing...







One false move, and it would get real ugly real quick...




Oh I was worried....but of course he handled it wonderfully...






What a job!

And naturally, look who came along.....






He was being a daredevil on a couple of occasions....
Bob I mean..........Yikes!!!!!




What am I going to do with you Bob??




After a couple of hours, we loaded up and headed back home...
It was fun to just go along and watch what he does ....

Bob thought so too.....
Love,
Me

A weekend of fun..

All three grand ones came over on Saturday....Then one went home....


Hes going through a *stage* where he doesnt want to be away from his mother. Thats ok..Weve all been there, right?

Which left these two......

And the one on the right who never asks to go home...Ever.....



We did the barn work together!!!!


And observed goats doing what goats do......Real closely observing....Learning a lot....


And watering plants and feeding birds and being outside....


It was a great day...




And then, the next morning....



We make pancakes.....

Like always....



Its our thing.....





Oh we have an addition to the family...


It happened while Mickey was moving some brush...


This came out....


And hasnt left.... Her name is Alice....

And there is one dog that is NOT happy about it...

The saga continues.....


Love,
Me

Friday and I will be off next week



I will be off next week from blogging..and working...and just about everything...Well that is unless I'm needed to come to work in which case I will, for a day...anyway..




That's just the kind of stuff you do when your

Look what I got surprised with yesterday.....

They came to my office with cake...... Look how happy they were...


They brought me hats......








And presents..and smiles....








Because they were just so excited to share in my birthday!!!






It was the best day ever!!!!













While I'm off the next week or so...Could you possibly tell me what kind of bug this is?









Mickey spotted it outside.......



I bet this thing weighs 7 lbs...Well..not really but look how big he is! About 3 inches long..!




And if it turns out to be a termite or something I will just scream.....



Ive started decorating for fall...Is it too early? Oh well...This always reminds me of my three Grand ones....The ones who will spending time with me this weekend..sleeping over and making pancakes and riding the 4 wheeler and just plain having fun....


Mom..I moved the lamps...Do you like them better now?


Do you all know that painting, "What bears do when no one is watching"?..It is a painting of I think 3 bears holding hands and dancing in a circle in the forest....I think I may have to get that and it would look perfect behind the couch there....



And I went outside and gathered a lot of flowers and weeds and sunflowers and well..a little of everything and brightened the house up some...
Look at all the stuff that was out there!!!




And look what you can do with that stuff!!






Fun....


So I'll be taking a little staycation........

Some working..some playing...
A little of everything...
Until later...
Love,
Me
