warped fence

The front of the fence is a pretty green and the inside is a wedgewood blue.  But there is SOOOOO much green in the back yard with all the plants and grass, I wanted a different color to look at! My husband is also making me planter boxes to put on the inside of the fence so I can grow herbs. (Thanks for the idea

Still lots to do, but it is well on its way!!

Where have I been????

Well Fall 1 classes are over!  I passed with a "C"!  So now maybe my normal cleaning, crafting, life can continue!! 
We have started to put up our fence in the back of the house. 
Remember the raised flower bed?

We now have the fence up at the front of the house!  It looks so cool!  We just have to make a sign for the front of the fence.  We are naming our back yard "The Ball Pit"  It is all in good fun!!  Our neighbor practices baseball, football and basket ball and we collect the balls in our yard!  I love it though!!!!!  I wouldn't have it any other way!!

We are going to Lowe's today so the warped ones can build monster trucks this morning then we are going to a craft show in a nearby town.  So I will get pics of the fence posted later on today or tomorrow!!

what a warped life!!

Well, it is the busy season at work and my classes have started up again.  I have a hard time managing my time when I have TOO many things on my plate!  It will work itself out, but it takes too long.  This month to next month we hope to have a fence up, raised veggie garden moved (not the one I just built), and other small items done.  We will see how well that happens!!  LOL

art wall

AHHHH yes, I finished our art wall. I know...the wall is dirty and the picture is well, bad. Sorry!! :)

ok! and here we go!

With the weather as it has been, I have had to be selective with outside projects. It has been HOT HOT HOT!!

My warped boys have been playing pokeman. Their game board was a piece of paper that was ripped and destroyed! So, on the other side of our checker board I painted a new playing board.

As you can tell they love it! They are outside all the time playing!

On our arbor we have a black berry bush growing, well on the other side I had another one but it died (tear). I was at the store and found one for 3.00!! SCORE!!

You can also see the gladiolas blooming in the background! so pretty! I also found a small goldenrod plant for 3.00 also it is next to the gladolias.

....I know there is something else.....if so I will do another post!

Have a great day!!!

i just got in trouble.....

my husband just told me i have not updated in a while.....true. i am sorry. i will post later today.

painting in the heat

We found some 2 foot squared concrete pavers in our stash of bricks. I made one into a table top where my son stenciled it, found some round stepping stones and used those for "legs"

I decided to make a chess/checker board for the warped ones.

I only taped the border the squared I marked with pencil and hand painted. The heat index in 102 degrees. HOT!

Life has been busy here on the homestead. With work, school, and boys. No time to do anything fun. Just grown-up stuff.
Hubby had to go out of town this weekend, and I was allowed to go too! YEA! We went to Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasent Michigan. It was a fun time! Not too many pics were taken, there was an oldie car show. I did get pics of those, the most fun cars were the Pacer and a Jeep with flames!

Yard work pt. three

laundry day....maybe more

I have been sick this week. So, laundry has been lacking! So, today will be catch up day along with going through my summer clothes and actually getting rid of ALOT! That is my goal. I would like to start saving for a yard sale, I am not sure if I can accomplish this for the current sale season, but I will try.
