A Busy Weekend

Grandma and Grandpa will be taking care of  our grandsons this weekend. In a couple of hours, the house will be filled with boys. Me and Sasha will be out numbered. Mom and Dad are celebrating their anniversary this weekend. I bought a new basketball. Maybe a few games of  HORSE. Elliot bought a new soccer ball. I originally thought we would be swimming, as it has been so warm.

Not this weekend, we are having the most wonderful rain. It is just lovely. The last time it rained here was February 22. It is really rare for us to get rain this late in the season, not to mention snow.

  I told you about the house next door selling. The man who bought it is our neighbor behind us. Which I suppose is good. He plans on turning the house into a rental. The back part of the land he is going to put in a huge shop for his race cars. He already has a huge shop on his property with his house is located.
He has owned it less than 48 hours. He has ripped out all of the fences, started taking down the metal horse pens and I imagine by the next weekend most of every thing will be gone. It takes my breath away.

I ended up with 41 jars of jam. I need to make double that as fast as they are going through the jars. I do enjoy making jam.
boysenberry and strawberry and triple berry.

I finally finished this little mat. It should have been finished weeks ago. It is just that life interrupting that goes on and keeps my creativity at bay. It is finished now, and I need to get busy binding rugs. 

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

And all I could think was, boy, I could use those fence panels!

Beautiful flowers and a good start on winter's jelly.

Yes this rain is just lovely isn't it? Love the new rug. And all that jam...soo yummy! Have a good week-end, and enjoy those grandsons!

Christine said...

Its always surprising to find other people do things differently like your neighbour... I suppose we all can't be the same...
Good for you making so much jam! Clearly its GOOD!
Enjoy your special family get together!

Enjoy your time with your boys!

It does sound like you are going to have an exciting week-end! Lots of love in your house! xo Nellie

Wow, things are really popping at your house, The Hydrangeas are spectacular... The grandkids will liven up the place this weekend while mom and Dad are celebrating.

I'm so glad you're having some wonderful rain.
Your neighbour sure isn't loosing any time getting things changed around. He's a get-er-done kind of a guy with more ambition that a busy beaver.

Your jam and rug looks wonderful. My hook is standing idle at the moment.

Her we are having a long Victoria Day weekend that is useless for us as we work every day.

Enjoy the boys this weekend. hugs,

Life does tend to interrupt our hooking time doesn't it. Have a great time this weekend. Those boys will keep you laughing for sure.

I'd love to learn how to make Jams too :)

Sara at Come Away With Me said...

Your neighbor tearing down all that on the property he bought takes your breath way, but your making all that jam takes my breath away! ;-) Have a lovely weekend and a blessed Sunday.

Your beeskep rug is FUN! Life does get in the way of our hooking time.
Oh, it's been years since I've made jam and no where near what you've made. Yummy!
So happy to hear you are getting rain.
Hugs :)

Kerin said...

Wow! Impressive jam count! You have been very busy.
Love how the rug turned out, and of course the bee skep is just darling.
Glad you were able to keep the Grands, and it's nice your son and wife could get away for their anniversary.

Enjoy the un-usual cooler weather you've been having.
