We worked in our parents yard, we took a couple of photo tours to snap some pictures of beautiful Shasta County. We attended a school musical in which one of our granddaughters performed in the orchestra. (I bet you're asking yourself, "How many granddaughters do these people have!!!!)
We have six! Each of our kids has two daughters! Six gorgeous, talented, strong, courageous young women. We also have a grandson, the oldest of our grandchildren. I used to say that one boy was enough but there is a chance that we might be adding to our family in the next month or so. It looks like one of my sons (not the one with a son already) is probably going to foster-to-adopt a young fella, about 3 years old. We are excited for them, him and us!
So Amber got the It's Okay idea from Glamour magazine. Amber is the host at Airing My Laundry, One Post At A Time.
Let's talk about what's okay today.
Most of my murals in my home are gone, painted over by a delicious gray (lazy gray from Sherwin-Williams or Four White, also Sherwin-Williams) and THAT'S OKAY! The house is so serene.
We have been re-doing the back yard. We have burned, piled up wood for the winter, and got the pool in summer shape. I have also picked up all 332 gazillion rocks in borders, am in the middle of widening borders, replacing weed cloth, and putting 332 gazillion rocks back with the addition of another 42 million black and white rocks. So, IT'S OKAY that all my nails are broken, there is black crap under what nails are left in spite of wearing gloves!
IT'S OKAY that Rex laid in my poppies and smashed some. It prompted me to put a little fence around the poppy bed.
IT'S OKAY that Rex pouted under the peach tree for an hour after I yelled at him. Time out did him some good!
IT'S OKAY that I have showered twice a day for four days because working in direct sun and high temps make me sweat and that is a good thing.
IT'S OKAY that I have been getting up and down and up and down and up and down because after a week of it, I find that it is now easier to get up and down.
IT'S OKAY that it is Tuesday and I have all week to work on yard, move rock and shower!
Have a great week ya'll!
Wait, that's not right. I'm from California...I should have said,
Have a great week, dudes!
