Day Tripping!!! with my sweetie pie!!!!

Grannie Frannie and Caylee

We took a day trip down to Pickney, Mich to see our little sweetie pie Caylee Roxanne!! Oh she is so precious!! They live in a lake community and just up the hill from the lake. Caylee loves the beach, so her and I and Brooke hung out in the water while Papa Sim and her Daddy fished and Momma went to get us ice cream bars. She is so smart for being 2!!! LOL I know we all say that about our own don't we? We were down there for a late Father's Day dinner. Sim and Ryan both had to work on Sunday so this was on Monday. Ryan made the whole dinner for us.


Caylee put her own shoes on!! Don't ya love it!!!


Our little beach babe!!


Thought I'd show you the hose holder Sim upcycled for me!! Don't ya love it!! We had the watering can and had bought the new hose at Home Depot and when we looked at the prices of hose reels we decided we could use something we already had!! Sim came up with the ideal of putting my garden gloves inside and alittle shovel and rake.




Sim also makes these yard art rakes. Aren't they cool? I have two that are very rusty that I love and I have them in the garden beds. He sells these at craft fairs with his birdhouses when he can.

Well I can't believe how fast this week has gone by!! It has been so miserable hot here in Mich the last few days! Poor Sim has Poison Oak and the heat has been bad on him. He actually went to the docter today. I know he's bad when he goes willingly to the docter! LOL Our garden is rocking and rolling!! It keeps us super busy! LOL But the fresh veges will make up for it! I have had pigs on my mind lately and I am whipping up a cute little tiny pig doll. I got the coolest book on how to make little animal dolls from upcycled clothes and all the sewing is by hand! My kind of gig!! I will be sharing soon as I am loving the way it is turning out. I'm also sure I'll be making more of them. LOL
Til then Keep on keepin on!! XOXO Love, Fran.
