Painting, Pond Tours and Patience until Noon


It's been a crazy, hectic week here at the Brick Street Bungalow.  We had painters for several days... As nice as the guys are and as much as our house needed painting, I really got to wanting the house  back to ourselves.


And, THEN there was the porch to have re-varnished.


And, a pond tour to get ready for...


The weather has been PERFECT!  We enjoyed the visitors for the pond tour...


And a fun, fun, fun neighborhood potluck party.


Fall is a fabulous time of year.  But, my favorite thing today is...


That in five and a half hours, I'll be holding this.  =)

You must be walking on air! Enjoy every minute.

I can certainly understand the whole painters in the house thing--no matter how nice they are.

Best,
Bonnie

I wish I could pay painters to come paint instead of me doing it. How cool to have a pond tour. I know you can't wait to hold and hug little man. Such a precious photo. Have a safe trip.

A Pond tour, how fun.Sounds like the neighborhood had a garden tour with potluck. You have a fun neighborhood.
Got your hugs ready?

Deb said...

I think I would love living in your neighborhood as much as I love my own. Have a wonderful visit with that special little boy!!!

Susan said...

I would have loved the pond tour and the potluck. Can I move into your neighborhood? Hug that grand baby. They grow so quickly. Fortunately, I still get lots of hugs from the older ones. ;-)

LOVE the photo of little man and his pumpkin! Have a wonderful visit.

Debbie said...

You have a lovely yard. I'm still working on mine. I've decided to forgo any ponds because of the hard winters we have here and the maintenance. But I love them!
Happy Fall!

Katherine said...

Enjoy your visit and this beautiful fall weather! A perfect combination! :)

Corners of My Life said...

fixing and painting is unpleasant, but the results are so worth it, huh?

Your pond is beautiful, so I imagine everyone enjoyed the tour. I hope you had a great week holding and playing with Little Man.

Artist Terri Smith said...

Sweet Tanna..Wish I Lived Nearer So I Could Take The Tour. :)) So Lovely! Your Place Looks Fabulous! I Love Mine Most After It's Been Freshly Painted. Looks Brand New Again.

Ahhh..And I'm So Jealous Seeing Your Sweet Babyboy! I Miss My Little One (what am I talking about she's 9 already ha) Every Single Day. She Sends Me Love Notes In The Mail Though..And Calls Me Often. Isn't Being A Nanna The Best Thing Ever?

Hey..I'm Offering A "Giveaway" this week at my place if you'd like to drop by and check it out. It's A Soldered Glass Piece in the colors of Autumn.

Sending Love, Friendship, & Autumn Sunshine, Terri

Carol............. said...

Will his sweet little cheeks ever be the same again when you get done? LOL

Katie said...

Just found your blog and enjoying all of the beautiful photos!! And I know how you feel about having your house back ~ we had our house painted last fall and I felt so misplaced. But, it was all worth it in the end. Can't wait to see how it turned out!
