Where to begin....

Okay I will start off with the good news. I participated in a swap with the prim sisters gathering and received a wonderful item from a good friend Valerie. Now I have to say I have had my goodies and it has been displayed for the 4Th but I am now just getting around to posting the awesome American Display. SORRY!!! I was so thrilled when I received my goodies. She not only sent this entire display but she sent a photo of how it went together. Hats off to you Val!! I LOVE IT!!!! Thank you so much!!! Here is a link to some of Valeries goodies she has for sale: http://primsistershoppe.com/Vendors/sites/YorkiesPrimitives/index.php




So yesterday I decided to go outside and take a few photos of what a bang up job our small town is doing with giving us a brand new street. They started the street the week before Memorial Day. Its now 8 weeks later and they have a quarter of the street done. It wouldn't be so bad but I have no access to my drive way and with all the trucks and equipment I have to park a 1/2 block away on a side street. Now we all know its not really that bad but after you have gone shopping for groceries and have to lug them a half a block and its hot with lots of cement dust it gets old real quick. Now on behalf of the workers I have to say the weather has not helped in them fixing the road any quicker. The story continues....


These photos are taken on my front porch

My husbands boat is our new lawn fixture because we can't get it to the garage

The photo above is what is left of my drive way.

Okay now those photo's were taken about 9:00am so later that afternoon this is what it looked like. I happened to look out the window while cooking supper and this is what I saw....





MORE STORMS ROLLING IN.... is it ever going to end? I turn on the weather channel and they were on there way along with funnel clouds that were spotted south of us. Well I'm hoping to have a road and a drive way by winter. LOL

Oh my gosh, Vicky, and I complain with this "chillier" weather we are having this week! I really hope that it improves for you and you don't need a dogsled to bring your groceries to your house in not that many months!!!! (wink wink) Let's look on the bright side, you have a boat if you need an ark and you don't have to worry about your yard work this year! LOL Thinking about you!

No yard work or flowers this year! I don't think you would be able to see them with all the dust. Your so right about the boat. Just get in it and float. LOL I am thinking of getting a wagon to hall everything but I think the boat would work better. LOL

Vicky, I am glad you liked your swap. I really loved the surprise gift you sent me. And I saw Nancy's snowman and it is just adorable. You have really been a busy bee. Hope your weather gets better. Have a great weekend, Valerie
