Mommas got a new boat!

After alot of debating Toni and I decided on a new boat! The ladies finally have a new ride and she is mighty fine!!
A few feet longer, a larger motor and few accessories here she is making her maiden voyage!
Captain Vicki at the helm
And Maizy-- shes not as happy about a new boat... seems she is not going to be a water dog without alot more practice....
If you look closely at my hand you can see some of my dreadful poison ivy...

After 3 weekends away from home this weekend was all abought  catch up-- I did more loads of laundry than anyone should ever have to do.. ran the dishwasher 3 times and did a ton of yard work.  I still need a few more hours in the yard due to  a snake slowing me down.... yea this morning as I was weeding the garden with the ivy in the back yard I came upon a snake... never good. After seeing him I grabbed the rake and used it before doing any weeding.

Friday night I was doing laundry when Mike called me outside-- ofcourse as I got to the door he asked if I had the camera... so I ran back inside...
Imagine my surprise when I captured this:

yup an owl sitting right next to the deck.. we have seen them before but never this close to the house...
Very cool---
Saturday I got some more weeding done and then we took the jaugar out to get appraised.. its time to sell and upgrade and get a newer 4 wheel drive. Sadley they didn't offer enough.. so I have listed it on craigs list. Hopefully someone will want a vintage jagaur convertible--or else I will be stuck with the Jimmy for another snow season.

We had Mike and Kristi over today-- alittle sangria and smoked ribs and Kristi brought over some basil and mozzerella... yum... Always a good time.

Spring yet?

You know its spring when I make Maizy pose in front of the flowers... Crazy weather hot hot hot one day and then freeze warning the next. I was supposed to be working in the yard but this is as far as I got... too cold and windy for me!!
But Maizy?? She thought it was just fine

The garden begins

So we have been busy watching our little seeds turn into plants... this year we decided to try our hand at growing tomatoes, spinach, lettuce, peppers all from seed... they look alittle weak.. but now that the sun is shining they are finally ready to go outside. Worse case senerio??? we go buy plants right??

Nascar- Richmond

With sunny skies we all decended on Richmond for the weekend.. it took alot of emails and phone calls to get Amanda and Corey down for the weekend but they finally decided to leave the chores at home and come cheer for their drivers.
It was a terribly long weekend and it took me until Tuesday to recover to from the lack of sleep--nothing like coming home at 12:30am and then getting up at 6:30am to do it all over again... and then getting home at 2:30am--- But it makes Mike happy that we all do it together!I still have laundry to catch up on and a kitchen that is looking kinda scary... but I guess it will wait until this weekend.
