A Relaxing Weekend

Do you know how difficult it is to get a picture of a hummingbird? It's tough! This is the best I've been able to get. Jason and I love watching the hummingbirds! They're such awesome little creatures.
I took a few pictures of the view from our house today. It's Beautiful!!! I love seeing this view everyday.

I also took this picture today. Jason put up a couple of American flags and I think they add a lot to the house!This is the shed in the back yard. We planted a little garden around it.

Here's a close-up of our tomatoes.

Earlier this week Jason and Murphy did some work on the bathroom. Check out Jason's beard.Later that day, Charlie helped Jason send some emails. It's a good thing that Jason has so much help around the house! ;-)
Jason and I went to a political dinner last night and I talked Jason into a picture. We don't have a lot of occasions to get dressed up :-)

Moved in and HAPPY!

It's been quite awhile since we've posted anything but I assure you there's been a good reason! :-) We moved! We're now in the mountains of North Carolina. And life is Good!

This is our new home. This house was built by my great-grandfather on my Dad's side of the family. Jason wasn't able to move in at the same time as me and the animals since he was at his National Guard training and finishing his last weeks of work. So when he finally arrived I wanted to welcome him home (that's why the balloons are there). We've since added more plants and bird feeders so I'll try to add some updated pics soon. One of my favorite past-times is watching the hummingbirds come by to eat and hover around the house.

A few weeks ago I was sitting on the front porch and saw this go by:

You don't see that everyday!

It's great to be in the mountains! We are even growing a little garden. A very little garden! We have a hot pepper plant, a cucumber plant, and 3 tomato plants. We also have some sunflowers that are growing pretty fast (a little piece of Kansas) :-)

I hope to write more soon. I have several topics to blog about so hopefully I'll get back up-to-date soon.
