Where have I been?

I wish I could say somewhere exciting but no!

The most exciting in my life right now is checking to see if the grass is growing!
This is what my yard looks like right now.  We ended up raking up the whole yard as the perfectionist in me didn't like what they had done.....I know but I'm anal like that!  We had 3 yards of top soil delivered which we took wheelbarrow by wheelbarrow to the back & spread, raked & re-seeded it. 
Notice all the leaves?  Well apparently all the digging sent my trees into temporary shock & they were dropping leaves like snowfall!  It lasted about 4-5 days & thankfully has now stopped.

Of course the seed they put down is growing beautifully in my garden & in the mulched area along side the garage. 

I keep repeating to myself "Patience.  It takes time for grass to grow.  Rome wasn't built in a day." 

It's not helping!

I want my yard back!

Sniff.  Sniff!



  1. You know how Popster takes a trip to Florida each year for a few days? Now would be a good time for you to do it. Run away for a few days.

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

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!
