Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July! Not doing much around here this year. Usually we have a party but with the backyard all torn apart because of the new patio being put in, there's no party here. The backyard project has been stalled because of all the rain we had, we need to have a big truckload of rocks delivered to our backyard but the only way to our back is through the front yard and with the ground being so wet it would make a mess. A big mess! So for now I am still using a step ladder to go in and out of my backdoor. My neighbors look at me funny when I go in and out the back. LOL I am also doing a painting project, my daughter and I are painting the bedrooms upstairs. It hasn't been done in years so it's been alot of fun picking out paint colors. We have picked out brown and blue for the first room. I'll try to post photos as we go along. It's amazing what a little paint can do!
Okay, why can't I catch up with my blog reading???? LOL Is anyone else having catch up problems? Maybe it's just this time of year......... Anyway have a wonderful 4th and stay safe!!

I hear you! It seem I've been behind on my blogging and reading all summer so far! Oh well!

Hope you have a happy 4th!!

I stay behind but I try. Hang in there, sounds like you're a busy, busy, lady this summer.

Happy 4th!

I'm so behind on everything! However, my kitchen just got a deep cleaning and decluttering! Woo-hoo!

Can't wait to see your photos of the painted room. We are going to do our bedroom in a brown/aqua combo eventually. WE bought the bedding over a year ago and it's in a box. Still need to take off the "popcorn ceiling" and do the floors before we paint.

Have a great 4th!

A very Happy 4th to you Joan. I hear you on being behind with the blog reading. Every time I think I'm catching up on Google Reader there's a wave of new posts and I'm behinder.

Gosh, I'm having a hard time keeping up too. Between keeping the grandkids, traveling, helping my friend with MS, gardening, etc., my computer time has suffered. Hang in there. I will too.

Happy 4th!

Hi Joan, Sounds like you have some fun projects going. Yes, I know what you mean about getting around to all our favorite blogs. It take time as we grow with our lists of friends. I think everyone does understand this.
When we lived in Milford, Ohio~ one year we went to the fireworks over the Ohio river with Cinn. on one side and Kentucky on the other. It was fun with the kids.
Just wanted to stop by and give my best wishes for a Happy 4th of July to you and yours.

Don't work too hard. Look forward to seeing your pics.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

I hope that you had a nice holiday weekend! Ours was quiet, except for the stupid neighbors shooting off aerial fireworks until midnight. ARGH! I'm resting up and doing my exercises, like a good girl. I just ordered a Nikon D90 for DH for a late birthday present. He deserves it and MORE! I've already told him that my plan is for HIM to read the manual and then tell me all about the settings. Hahaha!!!!!
