L.B. often sits like this. If he was a girl I'd be afraid he was peeing...but no, he just hangs out like this. Always ready to be on the go, I suppose!

Red Buds in Full Bloom

This is one of the MANY red bud trees on our property. I love them this time of year when they are in full bloom - especially since we have several lining the driveway.  Too bad they only stay this pretty for a few weeks.

Happy Lazy, Rainy Sunday

L.B. is chilling on the couch with me and enjoying a lazy, rainy Sunday.  He's about to learn what Sunday Funday is all about!

Da Bear

I bought this bear statue at Goodwill for $4 all chipped and mostly one color. I repainted him using acrylic paints and sealed with an exterior sealant. Now he's good as new and he will live on the back porch. (This picture is before he was sealed - he is now nice and shiny!)

Spring Breeze Scent!

We've been working on saving energy and money lately and spring is here, so what better way than air drying laundry old school style! This set up is nice since it doesn't take up space in the yard and it can be easily removed and replaced with the table umbrella once laundry day is done.  Plus, the table doubles for instant folding space. Since it's just the two of us here, laundry gets done once a week so the portable laundry line can be put up Monday morning and put away with the clothes Monday afternoon.  Perfect!

If you want one of these bad boys you can get one here.

Update: Due to the constant winds we seem to have here, this idea, good in concept, didn't work as good on very windy days.  The wind was too much and knocked the entire table over.  So now we'll be installing the clothesline in the ground.  It's great for gently breezy days though!

Attack the Giant Dawg!

L.B. is so funny.  He'll be sitting there doing nothing and then all of a sudden pummel Giant Dawg out of nowhere.  It's quite entertaining!
