Hi everyone. Happy end of the week, or at least end of the work week. We have sun again this morning also, which is wonderful. My husband works a half day on Friday's during the summer, so I think this afternoon when my husband gets out of work, boating will be on the agenda, if they don't predict a high chance of storms that is. I am writing this Thursday night so let's see what the morning forecast says. We both want a more peaceful trip than last week's boating adventure was.

Hi and happy T day everyone.
As promised today I will share my boating adventure story from Friday. It will probably be rather dull as I mentioned it before, and I am sure people built it up to be more than it was. I will also warn you, this is a long post. Sorry!
Friday last week was a decent day weather wise. Seeing we've had a lot of dark and rainy days this July, my husband took a vacation day from work, and we decided to go out in his boat. We hadn't been out since June, which shows you how wet the weather has been.
First let me explain that we store the boat on it's trailer; we don't keep it in the water all summer. However, instead of pulling it back and forth from home we leave and store the trailer at the marina. They have a big field where they put very large boats in winter, and during the summer the field is not as full, so we keep the boat there. Although we pay to store it, it doesn't cost a lot and comes out less than the cost of the gas we would used to trailer it home and back. Plus it saves a lot of hassle that to moving it back and forth between home and the marina's boat ramp would cause.
When we got to the boat that morning, my husband went to hook the trailer up to his truck. That's when he realized that part of the trailer not needed for driving had broken.

Hi everyone. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
My clothes dryer (that I mentioned yesterday needed to get fixed by my husband), is all fixed and back working. Hurrah for that! And the rain that was suppose to come down all day yesterday vanished until later Saturday night, and we even saw the sun a little while, so I was able to get out and do a bee check. Hurrah for that too. Of course the rain did eventually come, and Sunday (today) has been wet, but there is something nice about a dark Sunday and being lazy. I know the western part of my state has had some flooding that caused road wash outs and wet homes, but nothing as bad as some places in the world.

Hi everyone. Happy Saturday.
It's a dark morning here, dark enough I slept in quite late for me. Too bad because I was hoping to get into the beehive for a check this morning. And rain is due all weekend, not continuous but enough to make the days "not outside" types of days. Right now it looks like the sky is about to open up, so not enough time to go check the bees before rain. The good thing about more rain is my clothes dryer needs some repair work and with the rain, my hubby will be inside to do it. Keeping my fingers crossed he can get it fixed quickly and not break anything else about it in the process. Smile. (But I know he can fix it.)
Luckily my husband took yesterday off from work, and we did actually get out on his boat for the afternoon. It was quite an adventurous kind of day, with lots of "events". Some good, some bad, but happily everything worked out. I'll share those stories with you once I get the photos I took squared away because pictures will make the story better.
Today I have a tag for Sandie's Music/Musical challenge at Tag Tuesday.

Hi everyone. Happy Friday. Another week has gone by quickly, and it is almost the weekend again.
We've had a bit of a break from the rain for a couple of days, but it is suppose to be back again tomorrow or later tonight. This has been one wet and not particulary sunny July.

Hi everyone. Happy Thursday.
Today instead of art I want to share some photos of one of my latest addictions.
I've been working on some more garden projects when it isn't raining. I guess I have been inspired by all these gardens I've been visiting. Smile.
My new projects don't look great yet, but since they are in process , it will take time to see what happens.
It all started with this strip between where the woods behind my house starts and where my grass ends, out behind our fire pit. I don't want anything fancy but I do want something to separate the woods from the lawn.
Everything is so lush this year. This is my main garden. I thinned it about a month ago. I am now trying to decide if it is still too full and needs a bit more thinning or if it is good as it is. Part of me loves the wild meadow look and part of me isn't crazy about it.
