"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment." ~Gail Purcell

Makes Me Happy Monday 5/24

Makes me Happy to have wonderful kids!!
(back in the day)

The kids came over (and my daughters wonderful boyfriend too) yesterday to help clear some brush from the yard, trim hedges and get my old chest freezer out of the basement. The electric company is sponsoring a free recycling program so I thought it was a good time to get rid of it.

They spent a few hours here and we got a lot done.... more than I could have on my own!! Of course there is always more that could be done... but one step at a time! (and the black flies were making me crazy)

"God in His wisdom made the fly
And then forgot to tell us why."
~Ogden Nash, "The Fly"


  1. Good for you on cleaning. The only outside work I got done was a flower bed re-do (tearing out grass, putting in new dirt, planting new flowers) between rain. We love the rain, but it does make it hard to get much done out there. I will hopefully get a few more little spots done today (IF it stops raining long enough).

  2. I have more yard work to do myself...did have help from Joey and now I hope to have some more help with Peter...cutting down these over grown junipers that have turned into trees will probably need a professional...but doing as much as we can ourselves!

  3. It is wonderful to be outside and getting lots done!! Lucky you getting wonderful help! ♥

  4. Hello Sheila, so glad you got your jobs done. Love the quote about the fly's.
    Happy Monday.
