We have a glorious fence!
The guy finally came and got the fence up after I was totally rude and pissy with him on the phone the other day. I swear that man! It got his ass here, though, and got us our fence in place. It's not totally finished. He still has to secure the bottom better and fix some spots where the dogs could get out and put another gate it, but for all intents and purposes, it's in!
Let's go have a look-see at the orchard, shall we?
Come on in.
Looking back at the house.
This treehouse playhouse's days are numbered. The previous owners had it there for their grandchildren, I imagine. I didn't ask. All I know is it's coming down. That writing in spraypaint really bothers me. The whole thing does, really. I bet it was lots of fun for those kiddies though.
I guess this is a place where we could have a garden if we wanted. I'll take the winter to contemplate that one.
Inside the orchard, supposedly, are something called prune plums, pears, apples, currants, rhubarb, and Ken is positive there is some asparagus out there behind the fence. (Maybe I'll pickle some next year for Bloody Mary's! Ha.)
And I don't know what these berries are, but there are tons of them...maybe huckleberries? They are prevalent around here.
The grape arbor is inside the backyard instead of in the orchard.
These are Concord Grapes.
Can't wait for them to ripen so I can have some.
As you can see, the grass inside the backyard has turned brown. I'm getting out there today and doing a little hand-watering, mostly for fun and relaxation, but the grass badly needs it. I find hand-watering to be so relaxing. I have to lock Fletcher and Eli inside before I do it because those two dogs love playing in the water. They will not leave you alone if you have the water hose on. They must EAT THE WATER! KILL IT!
The Roast Dinner was delicious!
Feast your eyes...
Yes, I made homemade rolls!
How fantastic am I? :)
And now, a product review!
It's been a long time since I did one.
This is the O-Cedar Spin Mop and Bucket System.
You can see it and purchase it HERE.
We got it at Walmart for $39.98. Totally worth it. It makes mopping fun! Well, as fun as it can be anyway. I think I'm addicted to mopping and the satisfied feeling I get when it's done and it smells good and the floor is nice and clean.
I swept and mopped the dining room floor with it yesterday.
I also re-mopped the kitchen just because it was there and I had the bucket out.
I was surprised at all the DIRT I swept up before I mopped. It's sandy-dirt here.
The dogs (and us) bring it in on our feet and shoes, I suppose.
Anyway, 2 thumbs up for the O-Cedar Spin Mop!
I always call it Sit & Spin. Ha-ha!
I can never remember the name.
"Sweetie, will you get me the Sit & Spin from the basement?"
I busted out some yarn and a hook and away I went!
It was so much fun. It's been weeks since I crocheted!
More on what I'm making and the pattern tomorrow.
Y'all come back now, ya hear?
