Checking In

I don't have a lot going (active) construction, not flooded with errands, no major appointments, I know, I know, it sounds like I'm complaining! We don't miss many nights getting in the hot tub and we build a fire in our new fireplace every night that the weather permits. Lately, though, it seems to be raining or threatening to do so! I believe Daddy told me we have had 3 inches so far this month!

Anyway, Saturday was beautiful. Joe and I worked some in the yard..mostly cleaning up after the workers outside. We moved our stacked wood to the wood boxes and THIS is what we found!!

Isn't she the CUTEST?

I felt so sorry for her...we had completely disrupted her nest. She had 4 little babies about the size of Jolly Ranchers and 2 of them were hanging from her underbelly. She was such a good mom, as Jake pointed out, trying to get her babies into a protected area. Joe and I helped her gather them up and placed them nicely in a new home along with her well-built nest. I hope they are warm and happy there.

Believe it or not, that is about as exciting as it got around here all weekend. We are STILL having misty-rain and I must say I am
tired of it!!!

Anna has tumbling tonight. The kids are having Benchmark tests at school this week, so it is early-to-bed all week long. Joe is suppose to go fishing with a friend this weekend. My Dad's birthday is Saturday, so we'll have a party for him I'm sure! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPA!!! Anna has a birthday party (Happy Birthday EM!!) on Friday, so it will be just me and Jake on Friday night! Maybe we'll go to a movie or something!

Here is our finished fireplace.

Maybe, when it stops raining and the sun comes out, I'll get a better picture.

I hope everyone has a great week!!
