I love a great deal!! :-) Takes work and planning but so worth it!
Since things have finally started settling down from the party Hayley got busy writing her thank you notes.
It's a shame I think that this seems to be becoming lost in the shuffle of the age of technology. My mom always had me and my sister call as well as hand write notes making it more personal.
I want to be sure to instill this tradition in my children. To me there's still nothing as special as a heartfelt note in a person's own writing. My girl's also like to include little pictures etc. Their great Aunt keeps every single card and picture they have made for her. She also kept mine from when I was little and about a year ago gave them to me as a keepsake. It was really neat looking back....
What do you all think? Do you still enjoy hand written notes? Does technology rule? Do you feel technology is less personal? Loved to hear your thoughts.
We also have started our garden and are anxiously awaiting the growth of yummy vegetables!
Pepper plants, squash and pumpkin that decided to take over and come up from last year when we set the rotting pumpkins in the garden! LOL
Come on squash!!! :-)
Strawberries and their hardiness amaze me. This one has been in the same pot for 3 years. We keep thinking it has died, but sure enough every year it produces strawberries! We really must get this plant in the ground!!
When we water our garden we set up a sprinkler for a good soaking and even coverage. Well our rascally dog Owen was having a grand time tonight. He decided to go running through the sprinkler, getting wet, then rolling around gleefully in a big pile of dirt!!!!
You can see the other two wanted no parts of it!
He was one big mud ball!!! Patches was all white and clean...just wanting to play ball! LOL
The groomer is coming tomorrow, but Owen got a bath tonight!! LOL Little stinker!
We got our driveway sealed last week and Jerry was happy he could finally pull his 1962 Ford Galaxie convertable back into the driveway!
His dream is to get this fully restored and he'd like the girls to be able to drive in it for homecoming. :-)
If money grew on trees we'd be good to go! LOL
Our koi are adapting quite nice to their new surroundings in our pond.
It's so nice just sitting on the bench and relaxing!
Last night Hayley finished up with Scouts and earned her prizes and badges! We are so very proud of all her hard work and dedication!
The anticipation during the ceremony!
Great job Hayley! We are so proud of you!!! :-)
Tonight we decided burgers would be best on the grill! So I made baked red potatoes in olive oil and had broccoli and sliced oranges for dinner. Hayley made the burger patties up and Jerry grilled! Mmmmmm what a tasty dinner! I just love the warmer weather!!
Well it's 10:30 PM and I have more schoolwork to do. Trying to stay ahead. Hayley's school already called to say it's dismissing early tomorrow due to the extreme heat. Then 1 more day left! Busy summer ahead!!
Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
