Daylight shortage!

I recently made my first Etsy purchase! I got this sweet apron that converts into a bonnet from Paula's Fraker Farms Etsy shop. Here is her post about it.
Receiving it in the mail was a highlight of my week! Otherwise, life is busy, but daylight is short! Our central air/heat had major issues. Now we have a new unit. The teenager is down with an upper respiratory infection and on antibiotics. Not good material for blogging about with accompanying photos anyway! So I searched the archives for some "sunnier times".
Definitely sunnier here. I see the sunburns. (This was building the playset in the backyard)
Oh, sweet summertime. There's nothing like mud between your toes and pond grass wrapped around your body while taking a dip in the catfish pond!
More sunburns! My youngest and his cousins loved to pull a wagon full of big buckets up and down the street and collect toads.
Yes, they are wearing rollerblades that are much too large for them.
Cupcake time.
One of the trips to Goose Island State Park! The boys love crabbing.
Mmm watermelon that Paw Paw and Grandma grew!
The watermelon after the raccoons reached into the ice chest.
A last photo before saying good-bye to that camping trip.
I'm kinda wishing for summer right now!
Y'all come back,


  1. I can't wait til Summer either.
    Cute cute pics.

    O.k. the apron turns into a bonnet?
    Is it a small apron or do you have a big head?

    Just kidding, it is very cute.

  2. Me either cant wait for fun in the sun ! Sorry to hear about the sicky hope they get better soon ! Great post and photos. Have a good day !

  3. Oh, Lorilee- I'm tickled you are happy with your apron/bonnet! I hope you get lots of use out of it either way.
    I've been looking through my "sunny" archives lately too... can't wait to see everything green again!
    Hope your boy feels better soon!

  4. It has been cold and gray here too. Loved your summer pictures. I'll probably be complaining about the heat in June! Mimi

  5. on one of your earlier posts, your mom made a modern grandma's apron - would that be for sale? I would love that (or one alike) for my mom's 73 birthday - great work!


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
