Friday Home Blogging

It's Friday and I'd rather be goofing off on vacation than working. That's not possible at the moment, so I'm posting recent photos from my home life.

The first photo is of my 4-year-old, Jared, in midflight from his grandparents' couch. My husband Ed and I don't let him do this from any of our furniture, but we look the other way when his grandparents look the other way. ;-)

The second photo is of my side yard. The dogwood was planted decades ago by my in-laws, who owned the house before Ed and I bought it. We put in the arbor seat and planted the wisteria, which is top-heavy at the moment. We need to trim some of it and train it back down the arbor sides. The trellis at right is covered with our not-really-tamed raspberry plants. And in the foreground is our tenth-anniversary dwarf Japanese lace-leaf maple tree. We'll have been married 13 years on July 3.

The yard is beautiful. Looks so pretty and relaxing. We won't get into spoiling by grandparents. LOL

Thanks, PoP.

Great post of yours recently: "Preparing for the Worst." I tried off and on for two days to tell you so in a comment on your blog, but Blogger was having problems with its comment function for a while and I gave up.

Your yard is great, sweetie - and what a wonderful boy! I'll bet he keeps you and your hubby on your toes. Nice to see everything blooming - isn't it? Very pretty trees!

You bet Jared keeps us on our toes, FLS! He may be only 4, but he's as big as the average 6-year-old boy and is verbally precocious. He seems to have his editor-mommy's word skills.
