And that is exactly what Ellie, Chatty, Red and I have been doing today. Here's a little pictorial trip around Pfeiffer Haus today :)
it's laundry day (my favorite day of the week...yeah right!) and while Mama was sorting laundry Ellie got down to some serious painting. Now I don't know about you, but don't you think this is exceptional considering she's only 4 years old? I know she's mine, but the girl's got talent, look at that flower:
I've been letting my clicky finger get me in trouble again. I was looking at the cute stuff on Jeremiah Junction's website and I just *had* to have these sweet magnetic deals that come with peel and stick numbers for your address. Isn't that just darling?:
I made a quick trip to Joann's and I found these sweet little garden statuary things on sale and well, I wanted it, so guess what? I got it. And when I planted my red salvia, put fresh mulch down and nestled my newly purchased pretty down...well it just fits, don't you think?
while I was continuing to browsing at Jeremiah Junction's website, I saw these sweet Garden Flag holder things and *gee whiz* I really did need to replace the one that I broke two summers ago and never replaced. And you know what else? They had such sweet flags, and they really hit my fancy so...oops!....one came to live with me. Isn't it darling?! And since I've been on a spray painting kick, I went ahead and spray painted the urns (it has a twin on the other side of the garage door) and planted them with flowers for the season. These are going to look spectacular when they get all fully grown - black urns, crisp white flowers with a little bit of wispy green stuff out the top. Beautiful!
we (the kids and I) went on a rock adventure. See we live in the hills of southern Indiana and the area is known for its limestone (think Empire State Building). Just down the road from us is a quarry and I went digging around in the woods behind it and found these discarded quarried stones. Had to dig them out, then I had to load them up...but don't they look nice among my Stella D'Oro Lillies? (they aren't blooming yet, of course, but they will) And my bird houses...with the daisies and black-eyed Susan's that fill in around their bases (you can see they are starting to grow) And just on the corner there on the side of my house is my lavender fields, smells so good! How about that old water pump? It was my Grand Pap's:
because I've had some requests here's Mama's Pretty Boys, Chatty and Red. Chatty's been on a diet...doesn't he look all spiffy, with his pretty green eyes, and Red, his fur color is so handsome:
"Oh CRAP! Here comes Ellie...." she bothers them incessantly, but they hardly ever get upset or nasty with her. They just look *harassed* by the end of the day.
"SHHHH!! There went a bird out of Mama's bird houses. My Mama is so nice to put our kitty sill right by the bird feeder and bird houses....if only I could break through the screen and get those guys! Here Birdy Birdy!"
you enjoyed your visit with us at the Pfeiffer Haus today. Our Daddy has been gone all week on business, but he'll be back on Friday and since we've done a bit of playing now we've got to get back to business and clean up!
Until next time....
Keep your "hands at work and hearts to God!"
Love and hugs,
