Blather and a Contest

Okay, what is going on with Blogger? It will let me add pictures, but I cannot move them around as I used to, and who wants all the pictures at the top of the post?

We had a great weekend, DD2 decided we should invite company for a barbecue on Sunday, which required a heap of cleaning before hand as we had not completed unpacking or cleaning since our trip to GA. In addition, one of the people we invited was allergic to dogs, so we had to get as much doggy dirt out of the house as possible. I don’t know if you remember my stories about DD2, she likes to sit on the couch in case it tries to float away, so I was amazed at the work I got out of her. She cleaned up the deck (it was still piled high with junk from the move), cut the grass in the back yard and we planted veggies and flowers. I was able to use the military discount for the holiday weekend and got wonderful prices at Home Depot on gardening wants. We were very stiff by the end of the day, but the yard looks very good.

About 5 minutes after our guests arrived on Sunday the rain started; it was so stereotypical it was funny. It wasn’t just rain; it was a torrential down pour with hail and thunder. It rained like that for at least an hour, it was a good thing I had crudités prepared, because everyone was hungry by the time I could light the grill. And since everyone was so hungry, no one complained that the sweet potatoes were a little charred in spots. :-)

I will post pictures of the flowers and gardens this weekend when I can figure out how to do it. Grrrrrr
