A quiet weekend

For I think the first time this summer, we didn't have a ton of plans for the weekend. Well, we HAD planned to go to the county fair on Saturday, but a big ole storm came through here Saturday afternoon, & I pretty much lost my desire to leave the house even after it stopped. The humidity rose sky high & everything was .... well, WET. Ick. So we skipped it. This is the first year in 5 years we haven't gone. We've been in 4H the last few years & the boys have always had projects in the fair. We sorta decided to NOT this year. Fine by me, there was a lot less stresss in the house than there usually is the week of the fair. 

So .... we stayed home & just enjoyed the yard. I really have so much work to do in the yard, but I don't do well in humidity. I will not be moving south any time soon.

I have no idea what kind of bug this is ... but he was enjoying my flower & I thought he was rather unique. 

My lovely petunias .... one of the many plants that do well in pots for me, but not in the ground. I'm thinking we have B-A-D soil.

Rose breasted grosbeak .... nice of him to pose for me!

And these guys .... omg they made me laugh. The turkey babies were taking dirt baths :)  They are SO cute when they're little! 

We're building a fire pit & my kids had just finished raking the dirt smooth so we could lay the brick. This guy probably thought "Hey!! Really nice of you guys to make it pretty for us, thanks!"

That's really all I did this weekend ... take pictures in my yard LOL. We all need to just relax once in a while, right? 

Linking up with:

What did you do this weekend?

I thought the bug was made from glass, it is so pretty! We have wild turkeys around here, but I've never seen the babies. I wonder why. I love seeing pictures of yours.

I really miss having a yard and or even a small garden our own.
I miss having my plants, but I got tired of losing everything we plant in pots each winter.
Lovely pictures...
Thank you so much for sharing them at #debbieinshape friends!

Love your pictures, especially the bug :) I love having lazy days at home with the children. We should all have them I think now and again.

Occasional lazy weekend days are essential! And it looks like you spent them in a great way -- these are beautiful pictures. I really hate bugs, but do have to admit he's a pretty little guy! As for the humidity, ugh, I'm with you! Grew up in Florida, but may have to retire in Arizona! :) #debbieinshape friends
