Busy busy week...

Our son is on what QuikTrip calls a sabbatical. He's worked for them for 25 years and so gets a paid one month vacation. He assembled a bucket list of things he wants to get done ( after going to Biloxi and meeting up with friends for a weekend).
This is the first thing....
A wall of storage units from IKEA.... Getting everything to his house from the store was a project in itself. Except for the butcher block counter top ... it is done. My husband and son are pooped! IKEA instructions are non-verbal and cryptically graphic!! And cover more than one version at a time. Making things more difficult!  But we all think it looks great and will be very handy. The butcher block counter top will be where the crock pots simmer away and serving done. There will be electricity!!

The next project was one Lili ( my grand daughter) and I accomplished... the front beds. We trimmed the bushes, weeded, trimmed the beech tree and so on.... The final touch was loads of black mulch. Luckily Lowe's put it on sale the day we  finished!!
Lili's uncle made a financial contribution to his niece.... teenagers always need money.  Lili has a return work day this fall.
BTW... black mulch leaves one's hands black ( washable) and one's nails grungy gray. Soap doesn't help!!

The rest of the list is more "fun"....

I have been getting ready for this show....
