Back in the Saddle



Got home from my business trip last night at about 11.

Then the stupid decorative thing fell off the blinds downstairs at some point in the middle of the night and made a huge racket.  (Dag-nabbed decorative things!  The clips that are supposed to hold those things up there DON’T WORK and I’m constantly messing with that stupid top piece because it’s always crashing to the floor.)


So I’m pretty tired but glad to be home.  It was 107 degrees where I was.  YUCK.  Like walking into an oven whenever you go outside. 

Our kitchen cabinet painting project is coming along….We have the drawer fronts back on and a few doors back up (umm…9 out of 17) and our kitchen is looking better!  I’ll put the final coat of paint on a few more doors tonight.  I also got the decorative trim installed last weekend.  Here’s a little teaser shot for ya 🙂


While I worked on the kitchen, Hubby was being an angel and moving the final pieces of edging along the side “border” of our backyard (in about 100 degree heat).  The new grass is coming along over there, and once the two sides are filled in, the only maintenance required will be mowing!

While I was outside taking those pictures….I also had to harvest some veggies:


And capture a new bloomer!

What kind of plant is this?

And here’s the hibiscus (below)– getting really big next to some potted perennials!


Hey Mom, I guess my ice plant is a pink one after all 🙂


  1. That's a phlox. Beautiful! I am jealous of your veggie crop! I've picked exactly ONE cherry tomato so far…but my clematis are doubled over to the ground. I need a taller trellis!


  2. Katie, I think you must have a green thumb. Everything grows so good for you. I'm jealous of those vegies. I just don't have it. I can't grow much. Thanks for stopping by and giving advise about my cabinets. I appreciate any I can get.Brooke
