A Typical Saturday... And a WINNER

You know you are getting old when you look forward to Saturdays so that you can sleep until 8 o'clock, drink coffee at leisure, and catch up on house/yard work...

Ok, well, maybe we don't really look forward to the yard and housework, but it has become a necessary part of our routine over the last few years. Sometimes it honestly feels like we LIVE just for the few hours on Saturday evening and Sunday morning when the house is sparkly clean, the grass is freshly cut, and the pollen is blown off the front porch. (A little sad, huh?!?)

Anyway, today was no exception. I started off the morning by working on a Habitat for Humanity house with the Junior League. When I got there, they asked me what my "skills" were. Uhhh... interior design? I picked up trash in the yard and painted trim for three hours.

Luckily, when I got home, I found Jeff hard at work in the yard. He had even come up with the GENIUS idea of hiring our next door neighbor kids to "help."

(Haha, this picture cracks me up!! I promise Jeff did more than just "supervise.")

He paid them in popsicles.

I wonder if they would be interested in vaccuuming and laundry too?
