Yard Work

I've been neglecting our yard lately due to inside activities like SEWING!! lol

On my list of things to do today was to clean off the front porch, pot up some plants, divide my Aloe plants and cut back three clematis vines that were slowly taking over the house! These are two Geranium plants I repotted that my daughter gave me for Mother's Day.

The pot on the top has an Angel stenciled on the side. I went through a stenciling stage about 10 years ago and this is one of the remaining stenciled clay pots. I had to throw away one this morning that had cracked and fallen apart when I picked it up. :o( Notice the drainage saucer is a frisbee.

I had a milestone birthday earlier this year and this morning I think I lost another year or two! Here are a couple of God's creatures living on my front portch!

I've tried to do some odds and ends this morning like yard work, vacuuming, laundry, hanging out clothes, etc. This afternoon I plan to sew. I need to finish up a couple of special request items. Its a beautiful day outside here in North Carolina! I just might take a nap under the ceiling fan.....!

Yikes! on that lizard! My mom has big "beefy" looking lizards at her house. When I was younger and still living at home, she had one to come inside on her back one time! She was on the phone talking to someone when she realized it. You can imagine the performance she gave to that woman!

It sounds like you had a very productive day. I had a toad in my garden last year and the thing used to scare the daylights out of me. I would be weeding away and all of the sudden it would hop at me! I screamed every single time it happened - LOL.

You are a busy bee!

Speaking of creatures, I have had a wasp that is determined to set up house on my front porch, right above the door. I have knocked down its nest a dozen times but it still keeps coming back and building in the exact same spot!

I am so thankful for God's Mercy!!!  I can never, ever, be good enough, but with His Mercy, I am made whole. Matthew 5:7 - "Bless...
