May 11th

The smell of corn cob is pungent around here right now. It's on every single screen,door frame,and deck we have.It's in our air conditioner and the dust is everywhere in our house. YES, they've started the restoration of our logs !!!!!!! wooohooooooo!! The mess will surely be worth it in the end. It's 8 years of waiting and I am beyond excited for it to finally be happening. Here's the start of it, I will keep posting pics are they go along.
Spring has sprung around here!Our flowering Crab trees are in full bloom and my beautiful tulips are stunning this year! I love spring !!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, enjoy yourself and get a little pampering from your families! I will leave you with a funny little story !!

So, we had this great 10-year-old cat named Jack who just recently died.
>Jack was a great cat, the kids would carry him around and sit on him, and
>nothing ever bothered him. He used to hang out and nap all day long on this
>mat in our bathroom.
>Well, we have 3 kids and at the time of this story, they were 4 years old,
>3 years old and 1 year old. The middle one is Eli. Eli really loves
>chapstick. LOVES IT. He kept asking to use my chapstick and then losing it.
>So finally one day I showed him where in the bathroom I keep my chapstick
>and how he could use it whenever he wanted to but he needed to put it right
>back in the drawer when he was done.
>Last year on Mother's Day, we were having the typical rush around and try
>to get ready for Church with everyone crying and carrying on. My two boys
>are fighting over the toy in the cereal box. I am trying to nurse my little
>one at the same time I am putting on my make-up. Everything is a mess and
>everyone has long forgotten that this is a wonderful day to honor me and
>the amazing job that is motherhood.
>We finally have the older one, the baby loaded in the car, and I am looking
>for Eli. I have searched everywhere and I finally round the corner to go
>into the bathroom. And there was Eli. He was applying my chapstick very
>carefully to Jack's . . . rear end. Eli looked right into my eyes and said,
>"chapped." Now if you have a cat, you know that he is right--their little
>butts do look pretty chapped. And, frankly, Jack didn't seem to mind.
>And the only question to really ask at that point was whether it was the
>FIRST time Eli had done that to the cat's behind or the hundredth.
>And THAT is my favorite Mother's Day moment ever because it reminds us that
>no matter how hard we try to civilize these glorious little creatures,
>there will always be that day when you realize they've been using your
>chapstick on the cat's butt.
