This mornings pictures...

I have been admiring all the pictures on other blogs and have decided to use my beautiful camera to post my own family, yard and house. So here are some shots from this morning.

First I had to take a picture of my "solar clothes dryer". I think it's quite funny that these are now a thing to take pictures of. I have had one at each of my houses, installed by me mostly. I have always loved the smell of fresh dried laundry, but on the down side hate stiff towels, and the lint and dog hair that never seems to come off. But now this is the only clothes dryer we have. It works great, and luckily we are now in a hot climate in the shade so the clothes don't fade as much. The down side is it is humid in Texas and sometimes it takes all day to dry out our clothes.

K and W went out lizard hunting this morning. They didn't find any like we did yesterday on the trees. K hope I catch another toad tonight around the pool so they can put it in the tank with our new anole lizard we caught last week.

W caught our cat Sokka who had been high in the trees chases dragonflies we believe.

We then spied this amazing spider web right at the edge of the creek.

And who could resist the creek? It's a bedrock lined creek, so pretty and water fairly clear for a city drainage way.

Some of the kitchen remodel

If you know me at all you know that I could never leave anything alone. This house had some serious ugly going on in the dining room and family room. Well here is part of the fix.

this is what this wall looked like before. Notice the very ugly plastic chandeler is gone

maybe later today I'll actually clean the tools off of the kitchen table so you can see how the whole room looks!


Poor W... he is desperate. Really wants to wade down the creek in the back yard to retrieve these yellow things...

I however did not want to wade in the sometimes a bit smelly creek to help him and he was afraid to do it himself. Maybe today he'll get brave or I'll get my feet stinky and wet.

bunny love

K got a new leash for her bunny Lucy and has been spending much time walking her around the yard. This morning she had me grab the camera so I could take their picture and W jumped in to love Lucy too.
