I feel sometimes like I should start every post with “Sorry it has been so long……” but I have decided I am not going to this time, I have been crazy busy and enjoying my summer and I honestly haven’t thought about blogging that much!
I just got back from 4 weeks at my mother’s house in Tucson which was split up with a week in Disneyland with all the family, and a week in Monterey Bay, California. (which was AHHHHMAAZZING can I not even tell you! My mom took the kids and Paul and I spent the week with just the two of us!)
I did a ton of sewing while at my mom’s, we made a dressy skirt for my mom, 2 pairs of shorts and 5 skirts for Disneyland, (Disney themed of course) and I did some mending that my poor mom hadn’t had time to get to (I even brought home a swimsuit of my sister’s since I didn’t have the right machines to fix it at my mom’s place.)
(I also had to get all the information together for a magazine article I am in this Fall for Handwoven Magazine, so all my non-school writing brain has been all used up!)
I do plan to blog about everything in detail as I go though pictures, but I am going to start off by catching up with a couple of things we did before we left. I think I mentioned the work we were doing in the yard? anyway I have a couple of pictures to show.
|here is the back patio before, look at that mess stored underneath!|
|Another angle of the before.|
|now the after!|
|we added hinges and gate locks to one section so we can still get to the storage.
I love how tidy it all looks now.
|here is the side yard with the fence up, there are tomato plants, peppers, and a fig plant in there now.|
|here is the fence from the front of the house, the blackberries and raspberries huge this year!|
Anyway, I will try to get caught up on some stuff, but I am enjoying my time with the kids so much I hardly get on the computer!
