Our absolute favorite act of the weekend was this band, called The Bluegrass Brothers. This group, fronted by a dad and his two sons was just amazing. Raw, gritty, full of energy. We loved them.

Camping was available so we decided to try out our "bargain" popup camper that we got a a yard sale for $100 a few years back and hadn't yet used. It may not be the prettiest thing, but it worked. This was Fuzzy's first time camping and my first time in something other than a tent.

I had a nice surprise yesterday afternoon when a good friend and coworker stopped by with her boyfriend. We had a nice chat and eventually moved out to the front porch. She got out her camera and snapped these pics of the "kids" for me... Thanks Paula!

My back has been giving me problems over the past two years and I have not been able to plant some vegetables that I would like. My husband had the idea to make a raised garden so I wouldn't have to bend over as much. Of course being a recycler and free-thinker, he couldn't just do it like the magazine. So he had the idea to use cinder blocks and odd pieces of lumber... The result is what he refers to as his Polish Stonehenge. It won't be in Better Homes and Gardens, but it works. I have tomatoes, peppers, and zucchini planted. We found the scarecrow at a garage sale for 25cents....

I am so excited. I have been looking for a little dog of my own for the last 2 years. We have a black lab, that my husband brought into our family, but I wanted my own dog. Something small, cuddly, cute, female and preferably not too sheddy.. I have put some parameters on petfinder, they send me a daily post of new rescue dogs in a 60 mile radius. Usually they are either the wrong size, sex, or are already adopted before I contact them. Well I may have lucked out today. I saw this little one and called this morning on it. She is in Elkton Mi, which is about 2 hours, but they are holding her for me until I go for a look-see this Saturday.. Her name is Chloe and is a Bichon Frise...Update in a few days......
