Weekend Update

Here's the news from the weekend!
I can't wait until we have Internet in the house!!!! Shouldn't be to long now - the HVAC guys should finish this week as well as the well getting dug. With those two items complete we can finish the electrical wiring and move right into the 20th century!

This weekend was a combo weekend - half work half fun!
The septic guy finished up last week and did a fabulous job. It is the smoothest finish work in the number 2 business I've seen (little potty humor there!) Usually the ground is all diveted and torn up - but not this guy! Smooth as a baby's bum. I think we have a local thing called Angie's List which praises quality work, I am definitely going to rave about him on that venue.

Anyway, that left the first project of the weekend for me to tackle - seeding the bare patches. It was pretty muddy as we had some much needed rain on Friday, so not only was there the satisfaction of sowing the seeds, but I got a darn good workout lugging around 10 pounds of mud on each shoe!

Then we moved the plant maternity ward up to my craft room. It was in the way and dark in the garage. Hopefully the babies will be happy upstairs and the survival rate will increase! I started 12 rosemary bushes from cuttings so in the Spring I can start on my much coveted rosemary hedge to disguise the property line of our neighbor. Rosemary grows like crazy in Tennessee so it should work out....I'll keep you posted.

I worked on a few crochet projects and then my friend Jan came by with her two daughters Emily and Sara. The girls had a great time playing in the fresh air, especially visiting Aunt Terri's chickens over at Clay Hill. The visit ended after a crafting session on the front porch teaching Sarah how to crochet and giving Jan a refresher lesson. She learned to crochet when she was young and got out of practice. Sara was a really fast learner (she is a sponge for knowledge as many first graders are). Sara is expecting to see a picture of her in the hat I made her, but unfortunately she'll have to check back tomorrow. Super Hubby Dan was to busy putting up the ceiling bead board on my porch, he couldn't fit in down loading pix from the camera. Tonight he's going to teach me how to do this (again) so Sara will see herself tomorrow!

Sunday was spent crocheting more hats and scarves, visiting with Terri, shoveling mud off the pad to hold the HVAC system, moving the cinder blocks from the well site, relocating the sand pile and other clean up tasks generally associated with house building and fall.

Hope you had a fun weekend and if not, come on over, because here at ThistleDew it was fab....This indeed will do!

of course like your web site however you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will surely come again again.
