Short on Time

I tell ya, the more I have to blog about, the less time I have to blog! Computer time has been cut WAY back due to life interfering again ;) Honestly? it's been quite nice. But then I get to missin' y'all, so I have to sneak on here. Anyway.
We've been keeping busy as usual. It cracks me up that I was worried about boredom creeping in this summer. Yeah. Not so much. With birthdays and shopping and outings and library days, we're anything but bored.
Some updates:
HVAC is offically finished {until after sheetrock, anyway}, and our siding was delivered today. After siding {and that could take awhile being that we're doing it ourselves. Yipes!}, we will start on electrical. We're progressing. Slowly, but it's progress.
The girls have been enjoying the trampoline. The only reason I share this super exciting update with you is because I want to post these hilarious pictures of Sierra:

Sorry, but I seriously crack up every time I look at them!

Oh yeah, we've also had a little visitor. Peanut, here, has been a part of the family for a couple of years now. One of Jeremy's friends found this little darling when he was a baby. His mama had died {the squirrel, not Jeremy's friend}, and Jeremy thought that maybe I could take care of him until he was big enough to head off on his own ;) I know better than to think that a human can take care of a wild animal, but I gave it my best shot, and after a few weeks we felt he was big enough and strong enough to be set free {that and he was starting to get a little snippy}. So, we set him in our oak tree, and there he stayed for several months. Then he took off, and we would see him from time to time, but we hadn't seen him in a long while. Surprise! He's back! We saw him sippin' some water out of Kitty's water bowl, and he's taken up residence on my tire. So we've been feeding him some sunflower seeds, and he LOVES it! Hmmm, that was a long story. Sorry.

Guess what else we've been doing . . .

Garage Saling!

Gramps, Sierra, and I headed out on Friday morning.

Sis found a princess alarm clock she just had to have.

Then it was lunch at McDonald's ;)

And a few more stops.


I've been trying to get a little bit of reading in. I love to read, and it's always put on the back burner {shocking, I know}, but I've been making time for it ~ even if only for a few minutes a day. I want to talk more about this, but I'm thinking it's a post of its own!

Now it's on to preparations for Sierra's birthday {coming up shortly}, and then we'll be getting ready for school! How did this happen so quickly?

What a cute little squirrel! I love Sierra's blue top! Abby likes to go to garage sales too, she always NEEDS something.

How awesome that you are almost onto siding. I can imagine that will take awhile, but the pride you will have in doing it yourself is so cool!

I know the feeling. I have all of these blogs I want to write and not time to get to them. What cute pictures of your little one on the trampoline! I love her little blue top. I would wear it if is was in my size! The lack of time keeps me from commenting on blogs too!

Yay for progress on the house! We did a lot of stuff ourselves too...and it does seem to make it take a little longer. It will be finished before you know it though:) The trampoline pics are too funny!

Becca said...

The pictures of Sierra on the trampoline are so great. Are you on there too or poking your lens through the net? I've been trying to figure out how to get shots of my boys on the trampoline.

Love the squirrel story. We used to have a squirrel who lived in our backyard but then we got our dog. *sigh*

Love Sierra's shirt in the last picture. It makes her look so grown up though w/the purse and all.
