Feels like Summer!

It's been a while since I last updated my blog.  Mostly it's because with summer comes so many more chores for me.  Now that the kids are out of school, they demand more time from me all day instead of just before and after school.  Trying to squeeze in doctor appointments, dentist appointments, and shopping for college stuff.

A very wet start to spring has also kept me continually cutting our 6 acre yard.  I feel like I've got wheels on my butt from riding round and round the yard about every five days.  It takes me 6 hours to completely cut all the grass so I've spent alot of hours on the riding mower.  While riding around the yard cutting grass, I bag the clippings and then spend time mulching my garden in with the grass while pulling weeds.  Thank goodness we women are great at multi-tasking.

And of course there is the pool maintenace every day, hot tub care, animal care, and let's not forget my husband who requires as much care as my kids and pets combined.

No wonder I'm exhausted at the end of each day.  Finding it very hard to get any cross stitching done.  Maybe today since it's raining again!

Happy crafting!


  1. I had to laugh about riding round and round. Be thankful you have a riding mower. Mine gave it up and I have to push mow. It takes me about 4 1/2 hours to push it. I call it taking the mower for a walk! Ha! It's the only humor I can find in it!

    Summer is great though. I love being outdoors!

    Have a wonderful day.


  2. I love being outside too! It's great to do some yard work, take a break in the pool, more yard work, etc. Wow! Sorry to hear about the mower walk. We just got riding mower last year so I know all about mowing for hours only to have to start again.
