Here is our holiday weekend recap…in mostly pictures!
We have been pretty busy since we both go off of work on Friday evening.
On Saturday we go up early and headed to Chester for the day. My parents hosted an 80th birthday party for my granddad.
My great aunts and uncles and my grandparents (my mom’s parents)
apparently my family really loves the name Katherine…thats all of our names in the picture below 🙂
A little visitor came to see what all the commotion was about …
then I took off to take pictures of stuff around my mom and dad’s house…
the pool that my dog LOVE to swim in!!!
my dad’s model T…I rode in it at our wedding!
The pups had a blast swimming, running, and playing with everyone!!!
I made orzo salad…it was a big hit! The recipe is “here“!
Then on Sunday we had a cookout at our house! Andre cooked BBQ chicken on the grill and I cooked BBQ jalapeno poppers, and potato skins!…healthy…I know 🙂
**at least it was with turkey bacon**
The dogs were pretty bored because Andre was not dropping enough stuff on the deck for them to eat 😉
Then on our day off (Monday) we ran some errands (Lowes, Belk, and such), cleaned up, cut grass, and I even snuck in a little nap 🙂
Then one of my worst fears came true last night.
Let me paint the scene…
I was watering my tomato plants and minding my own business. I was looking around as always because I am super paranoid about snakes and them biting me. Then as I was getting ready to leave the tomato enclosure I saw that Tillman had his head in a tree and was looking at something (which is totally normal…usually). Right then in front of my eyes a snake slithered out of the tree and was right at the gate of the enclosure that I was trying to get out of….of course I FREAKED out. I screamed so loudly that Andre came rushing out there (and probably everyone in the next county over hear me too). Then Tillman lounged at the snake and it struck at him. I started to really freak then….thinking that I was never going to be able to get out there to save the dogs and they were going to get struck and die and then the snake was going to eat me alive…so being the rational person that I am (not) I jumped over the fence and over the dogs calling them as I jump. They listened to me (thank God) and I got them in the house. By the time that we got the shed unlocked and the shovel out the snake was gone. I was pretty shaken up…needless to say. I am TERRIFIED of snakes. So the snake won last night 😦 and We are not really sure what kind it was but Andre thinks it was just a rat snake…I’m hoping that is what it was. I just hope that it does not make an appearance ever again. Hopefully my screaming scared it off 🙂
On a better note….I only have to work 4 days this week
but this forecast does not look so great!
where did spring go….
90 degrees is not spring!!!!
My farmers tan is epic this year. Maybe I will take a picture, but I am pretty sure that I would lose some followers over its greatness 😉
