Come on auntie

Come outside.  Come on auntie.
So that is what we did. We went and played on the swing set (douger is adding and refreshing it from my childhood hehe! Looks great!) 
We had a great time on the swings and with the new spy glass. Ben LOVES to play and play some more! 

Then it was time to go. See you later alligator! Love you auntie. With a sloppy Mac and cheese kiss. Sealed the deal. Melt! Until next time :) :)

Read on..

This trip to the library brought about an interesting combo
First book I saw a person I follow on Instagram recommend and I saw it in Costco. Sold. 
I didn't even really read anything about it before I checked it out
So Book one: The Light Between Ocean
A little sad... A family struggling and wanting a child. Hears a baby crying and take her in. Stopping there...If I tell you the whole premise I think I would give it away.  it was good just not something I would usually pick up to read or not sure I would say it is a must read. 

Book two: Mobbed
This is Mary Higgins Clark's daughter. Figured would probably be good because of that... But not so much. Ok mystery about an actress that goes missing and trying to find her through out the book. Good but I wouldn't say run out and read. 

Neither was a bust but nothing to rave about... 
Happy reading! (Checked two more out this weekend)

Classic joke again

Why did the golfer bring an extra pair of pants??
In case he gets a hole in one

What does a llama say when someone thanks him???
No probllama

And my one immature funny 
An elephant asked a camel, "Why do you have boobs on your back?"

The camel replied, "Well, that's a pretty dumb question coming from someone who has a wiener on his face!!"

Now I sheepishly giggle :) 

Joke on joke on.

Phase two

Of my weekend project. Caused a little bit of running around. 
What was needed: grout (trying to create paint I saw on Pinterest) paint and paint brush. 
What was found at js work. Grout. What was left at js work grout.
What was found at Walmart. Paint and paint brush. What was not found at Walmart grout. 
Equals back to js work for grout. 
Best part of all the running around. Grout was never used. Wrong color and didn't like the texture. 

But painting was able to be done. Actually started. Not completely satisfied with the look, so round two this week. 

Here is the progress. 

Bring on more paint and maybe a little sanding again. Hopefully final results soon :)
