The guys also worked on our wood shed a bit...more $$$ is needed to complete this project, but, Lord willing, sometime this summer these piles (there are two more piles not in the photo!) of tarp-covered wood will be stacked in the shed.
AnnaLynn and I attended a baby shower at Christina's mom's house...it was fun to meet all her cousins and aunts on her mom's side. Only three more weeks 'til her due date!! Oh, the joy and anticipation of becoming a grandmama. :) We stopped at Wilco on our way home from the shower for some tomato cages which I took the time to install immediately upon arriving home since the rain had let up. I still need a few more large containers for my tomatoes, and thankfully, a friend is promising to have four to share later this week after finishing a landscaping job...thank you, Lord, for your provision!! An interesting note, I planted seed for 28 tomato plants this year, and all sprouted and grew! 14 were planted in one raised bed and the other 14 had no place to be planted, so the idea of using containers was the only option I had. This is the method my dad uses quite successfully, so hopefully, it will work for us, too. :) Sorry for the poor quality of the photos; not sure what's up with that. Now if only the weather will warm up a bit...
The Lord's Day was rainy, too. We spent the day in fellowship with dear friends...good food, good conversation, and lots of knitting. Oh, how I love spending Sundays like this. :)
Monday brought more rain. The husband and I enjoyed a slow morning over coffee since he had the day off. I spent much of the day knitting. *smile* And in keeping with tradition, we grilled burgers, sliced a watermelon, and dined enjoying the freedom that is ours here in America. Since the weather was so poor keeping us indoors, rather than dining outside, we gathered in the family room and watched Vision Forum's The League of Grateful Sons during dinner...
For freedom, for family, for good food, for the land we have been given to take dominion of, for good friends, and for the rain that keeps Washington green, we give thanks. :)
