Everythings For Sale....

I made this bench this past weekend. It's got a red base with black painted over it to give it a more distressed older feel.

Everything needs to go! I have been holding on to stuff too long

I love this pig painting I did a few years ago, I may have made 2 or 3 of them and gave away as gifts

Signs I made from my friend Folk art from the harbor in Washington State! She makes some of the best stencils around for a good price too

Butterflies, bugs, and bees

Remember that vine I was complaining about growing all over my gardens? I let one be and it ended up with two flowers on it. Looks like a morning glory

Pool Party

Practice run....

Jump a few times, see Phil? This is how you do it

Oh yes, nice jump Phil, you are getting serious air!!

See how I do it?

Let me try again, I bet I can do better than that last one

Well not so much but look at my form!!

Yes Phil, praying to God will help you for sure!

Whoo Hoo!

Thats gonna hurt!!

Ray and Phil are like kids when they get together, silly giggles come out of them.


I have been really busy at work and when I get home I am just plain tired! I fall asleep in the chair while watching the news which then effects my sleeping later and I wake up at 2 am because someone snores and it isn't me!

So this morning I got some really good pictures of a humming bird at my feeder but no time to get them up here, I will do that later. Well I hope they are good pictures, he was sitting on top of my shepards hook guarding his feeder. I have three feeders all seperated so they don't fight which is what I read you are supposed to do with hummingbirds.

Summer came early this year and our weather has been up and down, mostly up in the heat but this week we got some nice thunderstorms at night and it cooled us off a bit. We have been running the AC in the house since I was on vacation. I go home and put on long sleeves because it's kinda cold for me, just like the office, but I am not complaining, I guess I am just a cold blooded person?!?

Harley the cat not the motorcycle

Harley is fine. He has gotten all his shots and he does not have ear mites but a yeast infection so I have drops to put in his ears and I have to go back in 3 weeks with the other cat too because he is also due for an appointment

We need more rain

I came home from being on vacation to see our grass is fried. Ray not too happy about this but not much could be done , we need rain.

I am not going to start sunflowers from seed again, these were dropped in the garden by birds and they are growing just fine. Mine on the other hand, not, they died or were dug up by some critter

Harley not feeling well, he has ear mites again

And I think he got into a garage or someone dropped some oily substance on him and he tried to lick it off and maybe it upset his stomach. He is kind of just miserable so I am taking him to the vet on Saturday

He shakes his head a lot and is kind of paranoid, I open the door to let him in or out and he peeks around and then darts out like a monster is going to get him

NY House tour

This is the back side of the house.. I forgot to take the front but I think I have posted front pictures before. We moved the fire pit which was way down in the yard and we never used it. Now we use it all the time because it's so close to the house

this is the back yard, it goes back to that shed

This is the upstairs hallway

The tiny bedroom closest to the road

Bedroom #2, next to the tiny one

Bedroom #3

Bedroom #4, this is our room

The upstairs bath, right next to our room

Bedroom #5 at the top of the stairs

Downstairs bath and laundry room

Kitchen, coming in from the road side

Kitchen , from coming in the garage way

Dining room off kitchen, we don't dine here so we made it a pellet stove room with a second TV

Living room, excuse the mess, we were packing to leave when I decided to do the tour pictures and everything hadn't been picked up yet

Staircase from the road side, the kitchen is beyond there on the left side

The famous porch! We sit out here hours and hours and the road is a step off, we get a lot of visitors and beeps!

Here you can see the porch and how close the road is
