The Playhouse

This month I've spent a lot of time and energy on mama's move and then I enjoyed a week at the beach. In the meantime, E.W. has had a little project underway, a space that will give us a lot of storage (I'm excited about having a place for my workbench and tools!) and room for his playhouse aka the dawghouse. When it's done, we'll be able to park cars in the carport again and E.W. will have a great place to grill and chill. The true test will be football season and next year's Tift Green, although I'm sure there will be any number of minor festivals between now and then. Bonus: I think I'm finally going to be able to have a porch swing!

Here are a few pairs of pictures showing the progress between June 1 and June 30:

Morning Harvest

Such a delicious time of year! Love, love our blueberry bushes!

Still at it.

The house is empty; now to conquer the final frontier: the garage.
So much stuff! 
The donation truck didn't have room for it all...they'll have to come back in the a.m.
Also, the garage has no AC. 

Not only that, I got a lot done at mama's new place...hanging pictures on the wall, trying (and not yet succeeding) to get keys for her room and mailbox, getting winter clothes packed for storage, sorting jewelry (thanks, Kate, for letting me vent!), getting her sewing machine set up, consolidating photos and memorabilia in under-the-bed boxes, decluttering and finding a home for all she has, consulting with the doc about her feet swelling, troubleshooting with Comcast after she 'killed' her remote, taking her car to be serviced, a trip to Target for necessities and retail therapy, and putting in a maintenance order to get her air conditioning unit fixed. I managed to get her new digs organized and now it's homier...and calming.

Tomorrow is a whole new story, with more lists to be checked off (another visit from the donation truck, picking up her car, storing her sewing supplies in the craft room) before I head home. So glad she's happy where she is; it's tricky living so far away.

24 beach trips. really?

The 24th annual (are we really that old?) Junebug beach trip is in the books. It was a wonderful week and a great respite. All four of us were SO in need of a break (elderly parents, family with cancer, work, and a few things that don't need mentioning here). We're all back to dealing with those issues but have warm memories of a week with friends who love us to help us get through them....and we're already planning our silver anniversary trip next year!
