We woke up early and I made us each an egg sandwich to get fortified for the day of work ahead.
About mid morning, I heard what I thought was a herd of stampeding longhorn about to come through the grove where I was working. When I looked up discovered it was Noah and his buddy Riley. They had come to pick fruit with their Mama's. Soon after they arrived, we had four more little feet to run with the others. And at about the same time, my friend Jae stopped by to say hello too!
I got the kids out front to run some races, while Jae and I sat and chatted with some iced tea.
Geeps was working on broken sprinklers. Here he is trying to coax a kiss from Clairey.
After the front yard play, we took then across the street to Simmons Park. Where again, they had a ball!
Even Gamma went down that slide! Oh yes I did! I took my camera with me and shot this of Hannah when she went down ahead of me.
And because I have no shame, I rode bare back too. In my chicken coop mucking out boots, and yoga pants and old t shirt, with a hair clip in my hair, and nary a stitch of makeup on. Yes.....I am a fashion plate! I didn't anticipate that everyone we knew would be stopping by to visit yesterday! I don't dress up for my yard work. Do you?
Before I leave you...here is a sneak peek at what I am working on. I bought this vintage bar on wheels at my favorite Vintage & Thrift a few months ago. I could see this diamond in the rough as being a great piece for our old school back patio and barbeque area. We spend a good many nights out there in the summer time, and food prep and storage is always a problem. This has three tiers that graduate in size from bottom to top. And it is on wheels for easy moving. It can be dressed up and skirted for use as a traditional bar, or left exposed for casual dining. I could see it's many possibilities. I snatched it up, brought it home, and hadn't intended to redo it until summer, but we are having a bit of a ParTay here next weekend, so thought I would get to sanding!
Better get to it. See you soon.
