I was suppose to be…

I was suppose to be prepping to paint today. I have gotten 3 sides of my mobile home prepped and today I was to finish the 4th side but I think I ran out of steam. Yesterday I was up and down the ladder so much and have been using muscles I haven’t used in years and I am feeling it. I use to paint houses for a living so you would think piece of cake right? . A little slower but still haven’t lost the skills. I am only 4 ft 11 in tall so I really use those ladders lol. So today I got the tools out and put the ladder up and started without my usual  enthusiasm . So my neighbor Korie came over and asked did I want to go berry picking and I said “sure do”. I put the ladder down, put the dogs in the house and went berry picking. Blackberries and Raspberries um mm. Midnight also loves to share the berries with me. Korie and I are going to transplant some of the berry bushes into our yards in the fall.

It is a bit of a hike to go get the berries so I used some different muscles which are in better shape because I have been walking a lot. When we got back I pick a onion out of my garden. First onions I ever grew and first homegrown onion I ever ate . Store bought will never be the same now lol. I also picked some cucumber to eat. No pictures of them because they were eaten.  I made my lunch and sat out in the sun with my dogs and thought I was going to read my book but fell asleep outside instead. I woke up and Midnight was sound asleep in the chair next to me and BabyGirl was asleep next to my chair. What a great nap! I didn’t get done what I wanted to but my body was telling me it needed a break. I have learned to listen to my body. Midnight and me still have some berries for snack. BabyGirl only likes oranges and pears so she has to wait until the pears ripen and I buy some oranges!

July 4th

We had quite a busy July 4th. We went into the city for my sisters annual 4th BBQ. Always a good get together. I don’t stay for the fireworks because BabyGirl gets to frighten by them so we head on out back to the country where we got to see a amazing Lighten Bug show in or back yard. BabyGirl and Midnight had such fun chasing them .

I got to see my brother whom I haven’t seen in 15 years. Midnight stuck to him like glue. He said she was going home with him and maybe would bring her back next year lol . No I don’t think so!

Of course BabyGirl and Midnight wore their 4th of July decoration.

 

 

Our weekend was so busy and when everything was over BabyGirl and Midnight were exhusted and they spent the whole day Sunday like this

They had a fun , exciting, safe July 4th!

Donkeys!

I had a early morning appointment this morning and when ever I have  to go to appointments it is always in another town. So I take advantage of this and use the old back country roads and some seasonal roads. I am always on the look out for new places to take BabyGirl and Midnight exploring.

Today was no exception. I didn’t find that place to go exploring but I did find these guys and they were so friendly and sweet.
