Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Game Called Due to Rain

It's been raining here on and off for the past few weeks. We'd really like to be out working in the yard. There's so much to do while the weather is cool. We did get a few perennials planted. We also seeded our new front lawn. It rained on Saturday, Sunday, and it's supposed to rain tomorrow.
Because of the rain and the mud it makes, we've been working on the window trim. Do you like my mistreatments? Poster board. 79 cents at Walmart. Makes a statement don't you think?

I've been meaning to show you my cute ironing board cover. They were at Home Goods a few months ago. They had red and cream toile too. Love that store.

I don't mean to complain about the rain. Here in the desert we need all the rain we can get. I just need to get out in the yard. Please.

I wish we had a Home Goods here. Shoot, I wish we had anything except Walmart.
It's been a weird spring in Utah. One day nice, the next day we need the heat on again.

I need to get my kids out in the yard.

So do you go to the Home Goods in Brickyard Plaza, or is there one closer to us?

You MUST enter those "mis"treatments in the Nester's next party. : )
LOVE your ironing board cover. How luxurious it looks now. Way to shop!

Yes, though we always need the rain, it is the sunny and cooler days that prompt us to seek our inner most gardner. :)

I missed some adorable birthday parties!! Such cutie patooties they all are and the decorations and banners are fabulous!!!!

happy day,

Send the rain here. I got some gardening done last weekend and the new flowers need rain! The roses in your header are so pretty.

Is ironing fun with that gorgeous cover? WE certainly have gotten our share of rain...and we don't usually get a lot of it here. cherry
