Oh My

Two months in between posts ..

Pre-occupied I suppose is a good excuse! 

Now that school is out .. and 95% of the garden is planted .. my tasks have been more home maintenance oriented.  Windows, screens and sashes.

  Mowing lawn and weeds alike.  Waxing my linoleum floor (secret delight).

 I LOVE to walk barefoot on freshly waxed linoleum ... takes me back to my childhood before the advent of no-wax floors.  It really was a pain to strip floors and apply fresh wax .. I can handle the master bathroom and consider it a luxury in a weird sort of way.

The Mr. has pulled out box after box for me to sort through:  PAPERWORK!  UGH!! 

The computer has been replaced along with a new printer.  You know I had a Kodak printer that had no driver updates for Windows 8.  I HATE disposable stuff!!

Maybe I'll blog my way through summer.

Your garden looks so nice and neat! We've had so much rain and storm after storm that I'm not completely planted except for the grass/weeds that have grown like crazy!

Lovely to see you back :)

Barefoot - that's how I spend 90% of my days - even the warm winter ones LOL

I missed you! I planted my heirloom tomatoes outside last Tuesday. Hope it wasn't too early. June is half over! When do you guys want to go fly fishing?!

Mrs. Mac,

Great to see you back and love the post.

I love polished floors, especially if I can put on a pair of socks and run and slide across the floor. Yes, I'm silly but one must have fun even if I'm old, I'm not dead yet.

I also love walking barefoot on freshly grown grass, it just makes you feel like your in heaven.

Your garden is coming along really good.

So glad to see your post! Wow, that is a lovely looking floor... must admit, that's not one of my strong suits. Beautiful tile backdrop for your outdoor sink. Did you make it?
