Perty flowers.



Snapped this shot of our tree out front this morning lookin' all summery and gorgeous. It has been fun to watch the yard transform as the trees bud and grass grows. I spent about eight hours outside on Saturday raking leaves, cleaning up debris from all the construction, tending the burn pile, cleaning the deck, and hauling wheelbarrow loads of scrap metal to the scrap metal pile and brush to the burn pile. There's still tons to be done, but it looks a lot better. I also got the inside stairs painted and some more stuff unpacked over the weekend, and my sweet sister Peggy helped me paint the living room...again. And bros Jimmy and Billy supplied their brawn for a while on Saturday as well.

Jonathan is back from a visit with his mom, and tonight we're having a fun movie night while Winn is gone. We're going to watch Alvin and the Chipmunks in our PJs and eat popcorn.
