Busy, Busy, busy.........................

It has been a crazy week again as Scott has been replacing all the trim work in our living room so between that, having to paint & helping out Mark & Dani with a project at their house I haven't had a lot of free time.
I made what I thought would be a quick stop at Home Depot a "big box" store today to get some some more painter's caulk & also needed some caulk backer to fill in the gap around the picture window in the living room before I painted it.
Simple right?
Couldn't find the backer so I asked a certain sales person who didn't look old enough to be working there! Of course we had the "language" barrier going on again because of the way I "pronounced" the word caulk!! He kept muttering something about it being backer board, to I repeatedly said NO! He decide to consult with his co-worker who probably got his job after graduating from kindergarten - why do I always end up with the "rookies"! I, once again, explained what I needed it for & he came to the brilliant conclusion I needed Sheetrock because that's what you put around windows!!!
I just shook my head & very graciously left the store & went to my local hardware store like I should have in the first place!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
