We finally got our little weekend get away in after all the chaos that's been the case around here the past couple of weeks. Our temperatures went up about 30* which was nice except I didn't take any capris or sandals so was kind of hot. Not complaining though, as we have waited a long time to get temps almost 80*We got on the road about 7 Friday morning to head to Portland. It's a really pretty drive down 95 with lots of farm land to look at. We passed a big truck loaded with round bales. I yelled for him to drop them off at my place but he didn't pay any attention.......rats! Hey Mister! My horses want some of those round bales!!! I'm sure he was thinking why is this crazy woman taking pictures of my truck as I took four or five as we passed him.
Next it was on to Jokers. This place is gigantic! It is a kids dream. There is everything under the sun fun to do in this place and they did it all!
After a few hours at Jokers we headed to the mall where I went to Chico's and the kids did Build A Bear.
The next day we headed for home. It was gorgeous weather and we had things we wanted to get done around the yard. I had a nice surprise waiting for me from my dear friend Pea! The most beautiful trinket box to keep things in and a Someone Special pin for my birthday! Thank you so much Miss Pea, you are a wonderful friend, kind and thoughtful, I am so happy that I have gotten to know you over the past couple of years!!! xoxox
Next week my kitchen should be finished. Yippee! Mom and I have gotten most everything put back in the cupboards. I am waiting now for the electrician to get the power to the dishwasher, stoves and microwave and put the plates on the outlets. The painter has to come and touch up the ceiling and do above the cupboards and then we will be done. Again, yippee! It's been a process but is sure worth it to have a nice bright kitchen where everything works, doors stay closed, the fan doesn't sound like a jackhammer, drawers open, etc Pictures in a few days. :o)
