Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Weekend. William made it home late Friday night and we hit the floor running Saturday morning. His son Ray and family came down for the day so we wanted to grill porkchops for lunch and I had the other food to prepare. I cheated and bought a chocolate pie for dessert. Sharon and I hit a few yardsales but there wasn't much out there. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and talking. They really came down to see the babies and Sharon wanted to take Brown Robyn home but Diva and I said no. Williams niece Crystal came down Saturday afternoon and got to eat leftovers from our lunch. She spent the night with us and helped with the animals Sunday morning. We had a guy William worked with and his wife and 2 boys coming down for lunch so we had to straighten up and get everything ready for another cookout. We did steaks, chicken, hamburger and hotdogs so we would be sure everyone had what they liked to eat. I fixed salad, veggies, etc with strawberry shortcake for dessert. Williams daughter Lisa and her husband stopped by for supper on their way home from Virginia. They got leftovers from that cookout. Everyone loved Diva's babies but Diva was a little nervous of all the visitors. Yesterday it was just William and I and we spent the whole day working around here. We trimmed all the goats hooves, raked and cleaned the whole goat pen. Cleaned all the water buckets, and swimming ponds for the ducks and geese. We got Bud moved to his old summer home till Wayne gets his new one built. He is happy to have a place he remembers and his heating pad back. He sleeps on that thing even when its 100 degrees! We washed Williams big truck and sorted thru some of the things he had inside. His winter items are now sitting in the diningroom for me to put away and he has summer sheets, blankets, clothes, etc in his truck. We ran out of time and didn't get the inside all clean like we wanted but we will do that next time he comes home. All in all our weekend was so busy it seemed to fly by. William left today for Wisconsin and I am doing laundry, cleaning house and putting away things so I can get to the soap shop and get orders and gift baskets out. Those that won Diva's contest and the cottage drawing will get their items soon as I will be shipping them tomorrow. I promise to spend time tonight reading everyone's blog and catching up. Oh! William brought me a beautiful handmade hammock from Mexico and THREE! beautiful sterling silver necklace and earring sets.I will take photos later when I have more time. Have a great week!
