A Working Weekend

Happy Monday!   We had a busy weekend with lots of working at our new house we're building. Mom came to work several days too.  She is a work horse!!
She planted several redbud trees and then did a lot of raking and clearing.  She's dying to burn brush but I wouldn't let her yet!  She wore me out just watching her...while sitting on the porch...drinking a Dr. Pepper.

Saturday, Allan and I got up kinda early and headed out to work. 
Allan is still working on wiring and putting vents in the bathrooms.  I think he sees the light at the end of the tunnel with all of this electrical work!  I spent the morning sanding and sanding and sanding.  I FINALLY finished all that I can do in the master bath so I started on logs in the master bedroom.  My arms are so sore from all of this!

We went back to town for lunch and then Allan had his Taekwon Do black belt class.  I went to clean the church while he was gone to class.  We went back out to the house late in the afternoon.  We took stuff to actually cook our first meal out there!
Allan bought a little campfire type grill a while back so we decided to try it out.
It was all so good!!  Grilled chicken, fried potatoes, and mom's homemade garlic delish!
Sunday after church, we went to Antler's to eat at Molina's up there and surprise our friend, Stevie.  She was so excited to see us and we had a great visit with her while we were eating lunch.  I wish she'd come back to OUR Molina's!
Even though, I'm worn out from the weekend, I can say it was a great one!
Have a great week!

  1. I am with your mom I too am dying to burn our brush pile it's huge and getting to be alarming out of control (for me the hubby isn't phased) my main reason to burn is to have more room to trim/prune/chop. Everytime I get him talked into maybe lighting it we have a super windy day he has been let off the hook all winter lol. Glad there is light at the tunnel for your fella it helps. Great ending to the post the little yellow flower is perfect. have a good week & get some soaking in to help those sore muscles :))
