I have finally dug myself out of the pile of weeds and emerged victorious!
Along with having some internet problems which kept me from posting and visiting! I was having serious withdrawals too!
As you can see though, my helpers Snow White....
....and my gardener did help out ALOT! I wanted him to get the weed whip started for me. He bought this new toy. I can't use this toy cause honestly it scares the crap out of me! He so graciously weed whipped the whole yard for me. The weed whip is out of commission still. I broke the primer bulb. Oops!
But it is done and until it needs to be done again, I don't care! The yard looks so nice all neat and tidy too. Thankfully, by the time that I got the weeding done it was time to turn around and mow the grass again.
I guess cause I hadn't jiggled enough of my girl parts enough.
The flowers are happy and so am I!
The night before Memorial Day we did a tour of the Hartland Cemetery.
As you can see both older kids were thrilled with their Mom's morbid sense of fun.
The local Veteran's chapter gets together with the high school and puts on a luminary walk. Some of the students dress in period clothing and tell interesting facts of the veterans buried in the cemetery. Each veteran's grave is marked with a flag and candle for later.
I have to give credit to the students. They answered questions and acted like they really wanted to be there in wool costumes in 80+ weather! I was sweating bullets in shorts and a tank top!
The cemetery is actually very pretty though. Some of the older headstones are soapstone and have broken. Some are barely readable due to weather. I think the oldest one here is from 1827.
These are two graves that they "found" recently. The 2 men were buried here in unmarked graves. Digging through old records they found their names. Since they were veterans, the local chapter applied to have headstones provided for them. These headstones were just placed here in April.
Memorial Day morning was beautiful! We went to Kensington and spent a couple of hours fishing.
The bitty one got bored of it really quick and just ran around. Since I don't touch fish or worms, I didn't do alot of fishing. The weather turned yucky and the rest of the afternoon we got rain! Chinese buffet instead of BBQ.
Now onto the Inspiration Party!
You know the drill. You can add your link to a post about someone who inspired you this month.
I am sure alot of you won't be surprised by my Inspiration this month.
She has a gorgeous blog filled with breathtaking pictures, stunning tablescapes and mouth watering recipes.
She is a devoted wife, mother and friend.
She has inspired me to pay attention to detail and make every day special.
I love each and every post that she writes.
Including the one about laundry too!
Can you believe that?
Every day I feel blessed to have this wonderful person in my life!
If you haven't guessed already....
It's Yvonne @ Stone Gable!
I have figured out how she gets so much done though from this picture. It must be that extra hand growing out of her shoulder. I need to get me one of those!
If there is one new blog that you visit, it must be hers though! Martha Stewart has nothing on this woman!
Now it's your turn!
Share your inspiration this month!
The party ends Thursday June 3rd!
