This weekend was all about prepping the outside of the house for the upcoming wedding.
All the plants were pulled out of the flower beds, in order to save them from being bleached, as we washed down the house. Thankfully, they are all in galvanized tubs, which made it very easy to pull them out and set them aside, while we worked. Well....correction....while the men worked.
As you can see from the lattice at the bottom of the house, everything grows a little fungus-y and moldy, during the humid months, so it all had to be bleached and scrubbed.
David and the boys did a great job and now it looks like a newly painted house!
When they work outside on Saturdays, I am usually inside, keeping the food hot and ready, plus catching up on laundry, cleaning, and various other glamorous duties, of course.
Lately I've been trying to teach myself a new way of loading my pictures onto the computer, from my phone. It's complicated. I am not a technical genius (I know you're shocked), so I usually just jump in with both feet and try to figure something out, rather than read all the mumbo jumbo information online. This leads to me only getting half the instructions and spending copious amounts of time trying to find out where my photos disappeared to, inside the computer. Such has been my day today.
Otherwise, I've been doing nothing short of trying to find a "mother of the groom"
I don't do dresses.
I used to wear dresses and then one day I decided I wanted to be free. Free from slips and hose (really?) and uncomfortable shoes and worrying if my slip was showing or my dress was hiked up in the back. It's too much stress!
So....much to my mother-in-law's chagrin, I will not be wearing a dress to the wedding. You'll have to wait for the photos and the big reveal. That's IF I can figure out how to load the pictures!
In other news, the "kids" got an apartment and we are doing the happy dance! I was sweatin' the thought of them moving in here, right after their honeymoon! I think they'd rather be homeless!
I'm going with that thought too :)
All in all, the wedding plans are coming along. Short of having to bake 120 cookies, it's all good!
In 13 days I will be a mother-in-law......
I'm basically speechless.
Thanks for reading my rambling today.
I'll try to be more significant tomorrow.
