Other than having an amazing agility dog I have an amazing photographer. Now if my dog could just get a wonderful handler we'd be in good shape.

Check out my dog as she's Chasin' The Dream

Our Newest Visitor

This is our newest visitor. I have named him Vampire since he sucks on the feeder for long periods of time. He stays about 5 minutes or so at a time. He's very pretty as well but doesn't like Hulk to come by.

Did anyone know that Hummingbirds chirp?

I thought this last picture was really cool. Same picture as the one above it.

So here she is......I could only get her in the evening and on the fence. It's kind of dark so you cannot see her beautiful color

Our New Hobby

Well I wouldn't call it a full blown hobby yet but we're experimenting with a container garden. So far we have tomatos, basil, oregano, cilantra & some rose looking flower. We planted the tomato's over 1 week ago and it has grown huge. We just planted the basil, oregano & cilantra along with the flower today. We'll see how it goes. I would love to start making my own salsa since I'm a salsa freak.

What else.......

It's been too hot to work outside and inside. We do not have central air so basically all we have did this weekend it watch movies in the theatre room. It has been relaxing but it's putting us behind on the deck and kitchen. It's suppose to cool down by the end of this week so hopfully I can get more done on the kitchen.

We are also experimenting with motion sensor lighting. We're starting with the kitchen. If we like it a lot then we'll install the switches in all the rooms except downstairs.

Jay has also been helping our neighbor on the new mailbox stand, or the gillutine as we call it. For those who have not been to our house, ours is the one in the back ground at the top of the hill.

Since my last post I do not think I was able to share but our mother cardinal finally had her babies on Monday night. We were able to get a close up shot of them while she was away from the nest. I still am trying to get a shot of her but she doesn't like me much. She's very beautiful.

Also Good News on the Surgery front.....

I should find out next week if my surgery has been approved or not. I have no worries though. I know God is going to work it out just fine for me. Jason's mom has also decided to come and stay 2 weeks with us. I'm very excited. She can finally see where we live. I hope she's ready to sit and watch movies with me. I've told Jason that he should take her into NYC one day. I think it would be a great day trip for the 2 of them.

Well, that's all for now.....until next week

Carrie Underwood - How Great Thou Art

I love this song!!!!!

Progress, Progress, Progress

Jason and I worked our tails off this weekend. We finished the first section (3 total) of the deck. We even went out while a storm was passing through, and purchased our patio set. We were actually able to have dinner on it as well.

I also totally finished the top 1/2 of the kitchen cabinets. I just have the bottom 1/2 yet to do, along with trim and touching up the walls. Jason will probably not finish the tile and replacing the window until I'm home from the hospital. It will give him something to keep him busing during my long napping hours. Check out these photos....
