May & June 2013

 Have been really busy the past couple months.
We had grass to start mowing and a garden to till and plant.
And trying to get it done between rains,
 On our 2 days off from work didn't always work out very well. 
Plus I was a little down in May missing my Mom & grandmother.
So I told them Happy Birthday in Heaven on their B-Day and then on mine.
I love being born in their birth month. 

Our garden isn't doing so good this year with all the rain.
And we have a critter having snacks on few things,
 my lime a beans, onions and corn.
Not shore if it is the crows, rabbits or deer or maybe even a few chipmunks.
I have been replanting a few things that have been ate down to the ground.
It is hard growing a garden when you work and have only a hour each morning to care for it and then 1/2 days on your day off. 

I try to do the house work at night to keep up with it, but some times there just don't seem to be enough hours in a day to get it done.

Thought I'd post some of the photos I've took to share with you my friends.
