The Weekend Wrap-up

No time to rest up this weekend … we unpacked and jumped right back into life here at Chez Nana. 

We had the two littles here for a sleepover Sunday night … Mama and Daddy took the two bigs to dinner and a movie (God’s Not Dead) to celebrate the last day of school.  T#1 finished up 6th grade, T#2 finished up 4th and T#3 finished up 1st grade.  T#4 will be ready to do a little preliminary kindergarten work this fall … Mama’s going to have her hands full!  photo 3

I did a walkabout through the yard to check out how things are growing. 
Here’s a picture I took of our green beans before we left:photo 2 (1)
And here they are now:photo 1 (1)

It looks like we’ll be having tomatoes before too long (forgive the blurry shot … it’s hard to see my phone’s screen when it’s so sunny).photo 4 (1)

We’ve already had a couple of salads using our red leaf lettuce, and I’ve got flowers blooming, too!Garden 20141

We got together at DD’s yesterday afternoon for the family birthday party for T#2 … she’ll be 10 on Thursday.  We all played some kick ball.  T#1 and I played Trac Ball … I should say he played and I tried to play … I did more running to fetch the ball than I did catching.  Winking smile

By the time we got back home Monday evening, I tried to do a little stitching on my hexies, but I was just too worn out to concentrate.  I have a feeling that I’ll be just as exhausted tonight … I was up at 3:30 this morning (am I still in the Eastern time zone?), and I’ll be watching the Ts this afternoon while Mama has a doctor’s appointment. 

Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!


  1. Wow your garden's ahead of mine : )

    I did start lettuce awhile ago and it is coming up now, though :)

  2. I can see why you were so tired last night!!! Hope you catch up on your sleep soon. How is DD feeling? Hope she is doing better. ~Jeanne

  3. I planted six tomatoes and one plant already looks like it will die although I do have tomatoes on all of them. So far zucchini blossoms are just falling off again this year with no veggie - I wonder why that is?

  4. Good morning! We are back too but I have lots to do and probably shouldn't be visiting yet, lol, but I decided to do a little bit. Glad you had a nice trip and your garden is looking good. I feel like I have been in another world, so I imagine you have been too. But it is back to business as usual isn't it, lol? Enjoy the rest of your day!

  10. Yep, it sounds like you unpacked and jumped right back into daily life :)

    I'm glad you're having good luck with your garden, this year. It's lookin' good!

    I know your T's are happy about finishing up their school year. Our home-schooler has 3 more days, and is counting them down!

  11. How fun to have the little T's stay over! Sounds like your T's are growing up though. My oldest granddaughter will be 21 in November, hard to believe. Your garden is looking fabulous! Hope you get some rest and enjoy some stitching time!

  12. Your garden is looking good! You haven't mentioned your daughter's health recently...hope she is doing better! :-)

  13. Glad you are home safe and sound. I am sure all the T's happy to see you. Isn't it amazing how things grow while one is away.

  14. Glad you had time with the little ones this weekend and your garden is looking awesome....enjoy! Hope your daughter is feeling good.


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
