Ed has been working like crazy outside....well, actually NOT "like crazy" because Ed is one of those guys who paces himself, works steadily along, takes a water break briefly and really enjoys whatever it is he is doing at the moment....sprucing up the place and putting some extra and finishing touches to the flower beds and yard and all. I think it all looks pretty terrific! :-) AND I believe he is just about done for the summer, believe it or not, and we should be able to just enjoy it all from here on out, except for mowing and trimming.
And what am I doing while he is working away? Taking care of Jaylon, doing laundry, playing with Jaylon, cooking, chasing after Jaylon, cleaning, playing cars with Jaylon, paying bills, reading to Jaylon, watering plants, helping Jaylon to eat/feeding Jaylon, fixing something to eat for Ed, playing with Jaylon out on the front porch where he has his Little Tikes water table, motorcycle/rocking toy, play balls, etc.
You get the general idea! :-) And I wouldn't have it any other way! I just love this little guy!!!
I made what will possibly be one of many strawberry pies that we will enjoy this summer! Yes, it is gone! It scarcely lasted two days and I only had one piece! Ed looooves his desserts! He said his two favorite kinds of pie are "hot" and "cold"! Oh ha ha.....:-)
Don't get me wrong....I love the occasional piece of pie or a cookie with my morning coffee but oh, I LOOOOOVE me some chips, bread, meat, potatoes, vegetables. Oh, and Dortios? We won't even go there!
I've been planning our annual Peters Family Get-together/Reunion which is this coming Sunday at my niece's home.
It looks like everyone is going to be able to be there. Now if they just choose to be there.
I've been emailing, FB messaging and phoning everyone to make sure everyone knows who is bringing what and so on. I'm taking a strawberry pie or two and possibly a tortellini salad or sloppy joes or....well, I'm just waiting to see what everyone else finally decides on! THEN I'll definitely make up my mind!! :-)
I just love all of my family!! My nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews. We don't get to see eachother very often, so I really look forward to Christmas and then summer get-togethers!!
In closing this post, I'll leave you with a picture of Ellie the kitty of the house peering out of an empty Pepsi box that she managed to squeeze her chubby little self into. :-)
I had just set the box there for Ed to dispose of and lo and behold if Ellie didn't take up residence in it! :-) So I left it there for a few days until she grew tired of it. :-)
