Mr. and I went to 1515 for the Labor Day weekend
but our usual "Labor Day Crew" was missing?
I think they must of been tired of yearly weekend where we work
on 1515 to make sure is is ready to go for another year!
want a look?
When we got there...they were having a wedding across the street!
A large Chalkboard welcoming everyone
the backyard was set up for the reception
I took the pictures with my i phone, did not want to be to intrusive!
But we watch the guest arrive and after we got back from dinner
we could sit on the front porch and listen to the band play.
The next day Mr. was busy...painting.
the front steps were peeling
do you remember when he painted it 2 years ago?
the pink primer in 2011
the area behind the shelf above the shelf had gotten ripped
he repainted all of it!
I was busy cleaning out drawers and rearranging since my cousin brought
my Grandmother Hoosier cabinet, I have more space.
This looks better here then above the stove where they use to fly out and hit us in the head!
this cabinet all the paint had worn off from everyone hanging their towels,
But the best was...
Mr wanted to repaint the cabinets and with a gloss
I had someone else paint them the first time and their was no gloss
and difficult to clean
My Christmas Pyrex storage is exposed!!
Looks so much better, he even repainted the window area
So clean and bright no chips or stains.
even the back door got new paint!
But there was time for relaxing
Cousin Fred wanted to host the usual
"Friday night gang"
for a cookout at his house.
The Friday night gang, is the twins, their neighbors (and my auction partner) and her sister and husband. When I am home cousin Fred and I join the gang on Friday nights.
I had not had dinner at Fred's since his wife passed away.
Get ready to see his gorgeous home!
Living room looking out on the screened in porch where we had dinner
his grand piano makes this room look so "GRAND"
I forgot to talk him into playing for us!
Fred in this kitchen
I told him he looked like he was hosting a cooking show
He was a great host
He had burgers, green beans, tomato's and corn on the cob
Of course we all brought things
I took a avocado and blue cheese dip, see my red Pyrex bowl on the left?
he has a pond a a huge wrap around deck
cousin Susan with Mr. or "my boyfriend" as she refers to him as
sisters Bev and Cheryl (my auction partner)
Fred says "Come get it!"
Mr and I took a table by ourselves over looking the pond
and we ended the weekend with a
Andy Griffith marathon!
How can you not laugh at one of my favorite ones
when the goat ate the dynamite
Hope your holiday was good.
Thinking of my dear cousin Bob who died that weekend
His visitation is today in Colorado.
Say a prayer for his wife Judy.
