Yes, I love to pull weeds. Now don't go getting all crazy thinking I'll come to your home to pull your weeds. The answer would be NO! I doubt I'd pull someone else's weeds even if I got paid!

I listen… Continue reading 03.05.20 The words of Christian hymns truly never leave you
We have two large ornamental grass bushes near our driveway. They are beautiful when in full bloom but over the winter the beautiful green long leaves die off. Last year Roy cut them both back really well and they were prettier that year than ever before. This year when Roy got to that item on… Continue reading 02.28.20 Getting ready for spring blooms!
This was a very unusual Mardi Gras for Roy and I. When we were younger we went to every parade we could. In recent years we've chosen to watch some parades on television and attend none in person.

This post was published last year on Mardi Gras. It continues to be one of the top viewed posts I publish so I thought I'd post it new this year in case someone missed it last year!

Roy and I really like these sturdy roll up hose thingies (had to look up that word since thingy isn't a real word but the recommended plural is thingies) and brought one with us to our new little house. Roy attached it Friday so we're all set. He created some bolt thing made up of… Continue reading 02.16.15 Sheet rocking, hose reel and column moving!
