Happy Weekend!!

Well the weekend is finally here!  What an extra long week I seemed to have.  Well it really wasn't anymore than the 5 days but they seemed exceptionally long!  We don't have any plans really for the weekend and that is just fine with us!  We were going to go to Wrightsville Beach, but changed our minds.  We will do that soon though.  The lawn is going to be aerated, fertilized, seeded, overseeded, etc. tomorrow.  I hope the grass takes well in the backyard.  The Builder had originally seeded and strawed the backyard (the front and sides are sod) but 4 days after they did that we had torrential rains and the seed pretty much washed away.  We want to put a patio in sometime and while the grass wouldn't need to be in that area, we really need grass in alot of the other areas. 

I think I will get my black urns out and buy some mums for them.  They will go at the bottom of the steps on the front porch.  I think the shiny black urns will look great against the flat stone on the steps!  I have already put my Autumn wreath on my front door.  The summer one just didn't look right there anymore.  I might yank the plants out of the flower boxes too, they are getting leggy and need to be replaced.  I might put some pumpkins or ornamental kale in them.  We moved into the new house in November so this will be the first Fall we have had. 

The weather is suppose to be just awesome, so I will spend some time out on the front porch knitting and reading too.  I will need to get a good walk in too.  Maybe John and I will venture over to the Greenway and get a good walk in there. 

What ever you have planned for this weekend, I hope everyone has a great one!!

LOL- We are working in the garage this weekend. We stored a friend's stuff here (that passed away). He had no family to speak of so we had to dispose of his things and finally found a long long relative. We are packing up anything of value and sending it to him.

I have lots of little projects to do , too- xo Diana

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
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!
