Busy here.....

Well, much has been going on here..how about you? I have been enjoying the weather when it is not raining. I don't know if I told you that back in the winter when we had a very large snowfall the roof of our building collapsed. So now that the insurance has settled we have picked out two new buildings to replace it. Now the insurance money did not cover the cost of both buildings but my parents have generously decided to pay for my small garden building. I am so excited because my dh is an auctioneer and his building always seems to collect all his "treasures" and much to my dismay I am the one who continues to try to keep some order in all the mess. Now, if I have my own building I will not have to worry about the mess anymore.
The builder has been here and has staked out the building site and in about 4=6 weeks we will have two new buildings. The buildings are call Cleary Builders and they have some nice looking buildings if you want to check them out.
Yesterday we went to my sisters house in Indiana and had a great time. She is a dog breeder this is a link to her site if you want to see some of her puppies. Anyways, her daughter Brittney...one of the most creative people I have ever met, has decided to try her hand at gardening and I think she is off to a great start. I took a few snaps to share. What do you think?


My sister bought a new piece of antique furniture. This piece is called an Indiana dough boy. I have never heard of it but it is a wonderful piece of furniture...I must admit I was a little jealous. But I am happy she found it for such a wonderful price.


Until next time.
