well, not really but here's the scoop......
Our deck has been neglected (for 14 years!).....but I love spending evenings out there with the tiki torches, campfire, music playing and maybe even a nice bottle of wine.
A few years ago, we purchased stain. a BIG 5 gallon container. It's still in the container. lol. So given our current state of spending a lot more time at home, we decided it was time to tidy it up a bit before we get out all the spring furniture.
This purchase was wonderful (and a money maker at that, ha!)
And look at what a GREAT job it does - (before and after)
It looks like a brand new deck and going to be perfect for our 'sunset' evenings =)
So if you're local and want your deck/house/whatever power washed, (or even some other work done), I can certainly hook ya' up!
The dug out might look pretty empty but, today was 'opening day' for the Old Dominion League now known as FSPBL "Future State Prospects Baseball League" and Inferno definitely started the season off right!
We had a double header - and two wins! Yay! The boys did a great job. With a few practices this week, they will be ready for their first tournament next weekend.
Yesterday's weather was perfect for their final scrimmage before the season kicked off. And, if you're the umpire you definitely want some solid protection, right?!
from where I was sitting, I think this guy did a nice job, ha! Ok, so I'm a little partial =) Ronnie umpired and Chase was the catcher........
Chase made sure he got all the right signals -
and when it came time for pitching...the game face was on!
We have a great team this year and I'm very excited to spend the next few months with our new 'baseball/CTR family'!
are in need of a make-over. I'm talking, walls, floors, the whole nine yards! But when I think about what color I may want, I am totally overwhelmed. Overwhelmed for a couple of reasons. First, once I convince Ronnie to paint, IT WILL STAY that way for AWHILE! Guaranteed!
Over the weekend while visiting some of my favorite places -
she had a perfect solution to my paint dilemma. Yep, a paint quiz.
I checked it out and it's pretty interesting. The colors selected for me based on some questions are very close to some of the rooms in our house. Check it out!
So if you are ready for some Spring cleanin' and want to change up your colors, click here and take the mycolortopia quiz. Happy painting!
This weekend was another exciting one at our barn. All the excitement has been with Cierra and her lambs up to this point however it was time for Chase to get his 2012 Market Goat.
He watched several for a while -
And eventually narrowed his choice down to two. He checked this little guy out -
After deciding, helped get him tagged -
And by the end of the month, he will join in the fun at the Triple C Corral!
But that's not all the excitement. Cierra received her lesson in turning 'ram' lambs into wethers, lol. With all the right tools and being ever so careful -
First, let me just say that I LOVE my mac. It's been nearly 3 years and it's still running fine, still under warranty, and still my all time favorite, best laptop. I don't plan to ever own another brand. And one of the beauties is that you don't have to have anti-virus software. No annual upgrades/purchases, no need to worry about deadly viruses that may bring you to your knees. But....on occasion I do get that spinning, colorful wheel. I've heard this referred to as the 'wheel of death' however it honestly hasn't caused me any trouble, it's just annoying and I have to wait for it to settle down before going anywhere.
Over the weekend, I stumbled upon MacKeeper 2012. After reading what this does, I clicked, loaded and scanned. Geez -
Then after I clicked 'fix items', I discovered that part of my problem was I had too many languages checked in my preferences. Ummmm do I really need Deutsch, Portugal, Spanish and about 15 others? NO! So i edited my list and rescanned then woolaa!
I have to admit that it's running a whole lot better. I restarted and re-scanned without any issues and now seems to be pretty darn quick! So if you too, have experienced this and wanna give this a try, check it out.
