This morning we got up and headed to Jenny and Kevin's house in Concord, NC. It is about 40 minutes from our house. They wanted to take us to this antique place called Cline's Antiques. There were so many barns filled with antiques and antiques outside-we were there for about 2 hrs. and we just couldn't look at anymore! Then we went out to lunch in Harrisburg, NC about 15 mins. from their house. After that we headed to Lowe's because I told Kevin and Jenny I would help them pick out shrubs for in front of their house. We finally settled on Japanese boxwood and they were on sale! 3-gallon pots with huge shrubs for $9.95 each-can't beat that bargain! Then we went back to their house, John had to leave to come home with Teddy and then he had to go to work. Jenny and I planted their 2 raised bed veggie garden. They are so funny they no nothing about gardening at all. They were amazed at all the gardening things I know. Where was Jenny all those years when I had 3 acres of veggies, herbs and flowers-was she not living in the same house for all those years??? Silly girl! Then I helped Kevin plant the shrubs properly (he had dug all 12 holes-thank goodness!). Jenny had to come down here to go play Bunco with Megan and her neighbors so she dropped me off at home. I came home and moved my 3 palm trees, 1 lemon tree and my ficus tree outside. Sprayed all my roses (6 bushes) with Safer Insecticidal Soap for the aphids. I'm on here catching up and then I'm plunking myself in a chair and read. I'm done and I'm tired! It is a good kind of tired and we had alot of fun today!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
This was a glimpse from inside one of the 12 barns at this antique place Jenny and Kevin took us to this morning. Outside there are antiques all over the place. It is a shame so many things have been ruined or weathered because of being outside.
This field was on the property at the antique place Jenny and Kevin took John and I to. It looked so serene and reminded me of our farm we had in NJ.
This little cute iron bird bath has 2 little birdies sitting on the edge. I just couldn't pass it up when we were at the antique place! I'm going to spray it a cream color and leave a little of the iron showing through. What a cute bird bath or bird feeder.
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
