Photo A Day July & August

Hi friends.  I hope y'all had a good holiday weekend.  It seems like I haven't shared much of what I've been up to lately and I miss that.  So if you don't you may want to come back another day.  Lots in the life of V sharing today!

Friday started off with me puting my football on the front door.  I have seen SO many cute team door hangers(?) this year, I may have to improve mine.  Never the less Claire approves and says War Eagle!

 Eric's office has been undergoing a little reno and he had some new tile installed last week.  Perfect for a grass man!

Saturday we went to my BIL's place on the lake.  He set up the tv on the dock so we were able to sit outside and watch.  We lost (oh well) but there was a lot of Cam on the sidelines air time.  Granted not enough (it is never enough) but it got me through the loss.  The guys weren't as easily distracted. We also took a boat ride and I found a new house, not sure if I like the house or the vintage Chris-Craft boat-amazing!

Sunday and Monday I worked on my weekend list.  I got almost all of it done.  I spent 3 hours digging up monkey grass.  Ugh to the max.  I was going to rip out my bell pepper plant but found 9 pepper and a few babies!  Does anyone have any good bell pepper recipes.  I admit I prefer raw to cooked but I've got enough to experiment with.

We looked at a "new" house on Sunday. The owner didn't really think this bathroom needed any improvements. Anyone want to buy my house :)

 I can't go another month without posting my Photo A Day.  July and August to catch up on.

1) I decided to join Eric at the driving range, hard but fun.  2) back again!         3)rain, finally.  4) firework on the side of the road for the 4th. 5) we had a storm that knocked out power and we were like drug addicts trying to watch Season 2 of Downton Abbey so we watched it in the air conditioned car on my laptop plugged into the cigarette lighter. ha!  At 11 we made ourselves go inside.  6) lake time.  7) if only my nephews were as cool as me.    8) tubing with Baron.  9) working with Eric.  10) garden to table for lunch.  11) storm at the driving range.  12) blueberry picking.  13) sunset on the way to Texas.  14) pool time in Texas.  15) Claire loved to bite at the watergun on the float.  16) Claire also loved to corral the pool hose.

Well you've had a busy couple of months! Jealous of your gorgeous tomatoes. Hope Isaac wasn't too bad for you. Watched the Auburn game...thought of you...saw Cam (and picked him for my fantasy QB...he's a cutie!)...bummer they lost. Hope next week is better!

Hope you are well.

War Eagle from California :)

Do you happen to have a picture of this “new” house you were talking about? I can’t really tell if it would be a good house for you since I don’t have much to go with. In any case, the owner did say that the bathroom didn’t really need any improvements. That’s a good sign, if I ever saw one, but I guess only time can tell if this holds up. However, if it’s also another lakeside property like Bill’s, I’d say go for it!
