I came across a post format idea awhile ago and wanted to use it on my own blog. After contacting a blog friend I found out that Jennifer Jo was the one that had this idea, so I contacted her to get her permission to use it on my blog and she said yes.  So here is my first Quotidian Post. Thank you Jennifer

Quotidian  (7/18/16)
                   Quotidian: daily usual, customary, everyday, ordinary, commonplace

Lot of DIY going on over at our house this week. When the weather is rainy it's time to do the inside projects that have been waiting to be done. This door hasn't been painted since we have lived in this house, it was still the "Country Blue" that was so popular in the 80's. Now it matches our front door.

Young son paid us an unexpected visit because he had a job in town. These shoes were left behind in a closet, we boxed them up and shipped them to him. He was here earlier in the month as well, and left a pair of shoes that time as well that we ended up shipping.

It won't be long for tomatoes, I have three plants that are just covered. I shouldn't really plant them because we also get tomatoes each week in our CSA basket but I can't help myself

Airing out scarves that have been in storage for years, looks kind of festive doesn't it?

One of the last of the Day Lilly's blooming in the yard

Coming for a visit soon!

Hope you all  have a wonderful week!

June Memories

Our days have been so busy, that it's been hard to get back to my blog but I wanted to post my June memories, so here it is, better late than never, this is a glimpse of what our June was like.

 Our 41 Anniversary was this past June and we decided to take a long weekend to Charleston. It's a charming place to visit and there was  a music and arts festival going on called Spoleto while we were there Lots of music events going on in town as well as some art shows. It was an added little benefit we hadn't planned on.

Our garden really came alive in June. We have had quite a wet spring and it has really made our garden flourish this year, plus I didn't have to water as much. That's always a plus.

Our youngest son paid us a visit for a couple of weeks before he had to head off to his summer job. He helped do some organizing of the Mountain House items and joined in some cooking, including making a delicious carrot cake that we devoured in no  time. Thats one way to get our veggies. 

Of course I had to include some photos of my grands. They attended a Daughter Daddy dinner, and sent us some pictures of the girls all dressed up, they are getting too big, too fast.

It was a busy month and July is following suite. How does the time go by so quickly?? I'm afraid summer will be over before I know it. What kind of things have you been up to?
