Bushman calls it quits for the week

I scampered home quick as  could trying to avoid the local speed traps.
I went to work with a fervor.  In no time at all the garage was clean.
I ran upstairs, opened the door to the bedroom and ushered the dogs up an onto the bed where they slathered momma with wet doggy kisses and lots of nuzzling.  "Get up", I said.  "We can go to breakfast now".
She looked at me as though I was crazy (and I am), she  looked at the clock and groaned. It was 7:59 Sunday morning.  "wha.."  I cut her off quick as a wink.  " I'm starving", I said.  'You don't know what I've been through this morning now get your butt outta bed and get in the shower.  She didn't say a word.  I imagine she was a bit scared but she gets used to it after awhile.
She showered and I vacuumed the truck out.  Better safe than sorry.  I may have missed a sign.

The food was fantastic and I even had enough for breakfast leftovers on Monday.  We then hit the grocery store.  Groceries and a few flowers to put in my hanging baskets and we were off and headed home.

I was busier today than yesterday.
I started out the day weeding the garden.

Double checked the gutters I installed on the garage yesterday.

I finished the retaining wall for the walk on the side of the garage.

Then I mowed the lawn...sorry no pics of that.  Then I planted my flowers in my hanging pots...no pics of that either...I'll catch you when they get bigger.  I did re purpose old rabbit cage for a potting station.  It's just the bottom of the cage and I put my potting soil and pots into it to keep all the mess contained.  Works pretty good.  I did three more hanging baskets and one clay pot.  That gives me 5 baskets, 2 rail and one clay planter.

I re-filled all the bird feeders and suet baskets and then headed out to my beautiful stepdaughters sweet sixteen birthday party.  It is a few days early but she leaves for a cruise on Thursday and will be gone for her birthday.  I can't believe she is 16 already.  I already miss her.  I feel sorry for all her boyfriends because she has two Dads that they have to contend with.
Now its 9:30 and I'm going to bed.  Have a good week and I will see you Thursday more than likely.
