Yesterday Louis Dean and I spent most of the day working outside.
Since we were doing grungy work - we even ate our meals out in the gazebo.
As night fell I lit up the outdoor fireplace.
It roared up and then settled down when I put in a couple of logs.
I love the little
weed ground cover that has grown up around the stones.
I lost a lot last summer due to the extreme heat and am so happy it is thriving now.
We have had some perfect April days. Cool. Everything is growing and turning so GREEN! The leaves all look plump with moisture. I am not going to allow the dread of summer heat to spoil the enjoyment of this spring!
I plugged in all my little lights and we settled down in the gazebo for the rest of the evening.
I keep this flag up year round but I will soon be decorating the house with a patriotic theme for May-July.
Maggie comes right on outside to sit in Louis Dean's lap!
She is such a part of of lives it is hard to believe we have only had her a year!
We sit and admire her. She gets lots of attention.
Louis Dean and I do not have children together but we do have our 'critters!'
I talked to Amber this morning and she was sipping hot tea with her breakfast tray and watching old Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin movies.
She and Ben have loved this movie since they were young children!
This is the back of her hospital room door.
Her friend, Lisa, brought them and put them up knowing how much Amber loves Jerry Lewis!
Sometimes a little humor can make all the difference!
