Our new carpet...

Okay, before I tell you about my day, I'm going to give you a second to do me a small favor. If you haven't already noticed, I added a Frappr map to my sidebar. If you could just take a moment and let me know where you are from, that would be great. I promise I'll wait till you are done to continue (you don't have to post your pic, unless you want to) but it would be great to know where everyone came from. If you have already done so, you can take this moment to go get a cup of coffee or tea or take a well deserved break from the computer. Okay....go ahead...............(elevator music playing).........mmmmmm....mmmmmmmmm.......(more elevator music playing).....la, la, la, de-dum, de-dum.....(whistle-whistle)........(yawn)....zzzzzzzzz.......OH, OH....you're back! Okay, thanks! Now to the good stuff.
Just wanted to show you some pics of a favorite spot of mine. My front porch. Today, we had some carpet put down by my sweetie man's son-in-law and my sweetie man in the supervisory postion!
The job was done in an excellent manner!!!!! And his son-in-law never laid carpet before! We just kept him stocked in Iron City Beer and he was good to go. This next pic is me on the newly carpeted front porch. (with yarn in hand) If you are ever looking for me in the Spring and Summer, this is where you will find me.It is so relaxing. We'll be planting flowers around the porch soon and it will be so pretty. I am so happy about this cause it looked awful before with a peeling wooden floor.
Next pic is Ed's grandson (my future grandson) in one of his crazy new front teeth smiles.
I think he pretty much got pooped out for the weekend thanks to my son and his gal pal!
Last is Ed's daughter who wanted to learn to crochet. My first student...
By the end of the weekend she got down chain, single crochet, and double crochet. Unfortunately, she may have to learn the rest on her own as they will be going home on Sunday.
So that's it for the almost weekend. With all the activity it will be mighty quiet here on Easter afternoon so I'll probably pick up some yarn and crochet alot during the day. And if the weather is nice........you'll find my sweetie and me sittin' on the front porch....just swingin'! So till tomorrow............

Ha ha. I did the Frappr thing and then got all off track and missed commenting.
Your porch is great. Enjoy the swing!

You guys look great! The house I grew up in had a beautiful front porch that we spent a lot of time enjoying by either having dinner, swinging on the glider, or doing puzzles or playing dominoes. Enjoy your new, carpeted porch, I'm sure you and your honey will have lots of good times together. :)
