Life’s A Beach

I know, not a very original title at all, but it’s the best I can do in my sleep deprived state.  We’ve been on vacation this week and got all over-achievy and drove the whole way back yesterday, so it was sometime after 2 a.m. when we pulled in the driveway.

Anyway, more about the vacation on Tybee Island, GA (and the fact that Miley Cyrus was on the Island while we were there, one of the condo maintenance people told us which house she was staying in, and I wouldn’t let my girls go knock on the door!) tomorrowish.

For now, just three pictures:

Life's a Beach

Saying goodbye to the beach yesterday morning before we hit the road.  I like this photo because it nicely illustrates the small/medium/large, light/medium/dark of my three girls.  People seem to get a kick out of that.

mostly finished swing set  This one is for my dad – the mostly finished swing set.  He’s been wanting to see pictures of the progress.  As you can see, McH ran out of lumber before he could finish up the tower on the left there.  I’m not too worried about it since you have to be able to do the monkey bars or monkey rings to get to it, so anyone big enough to accomplish that should also be old enough to know to be careful up there.  Also, those three tall towers in the back row will have roofs eventually.  Hmm . . . I just realized you can’t see half the swings and other things, but they are there.

meadow

Here is a really crappy picture of my circular wildflower meadow, for those who were interested.  Just for perspective, that middle circle is . . . hmmm . . . I was going to say six feet across, but I’m sure it’s bigger than that.  Anyway, I’m happy to see that it’s blooming now more than ever (which this photo doesn’t show well).  I was afraid by the time we got home the blooming would be done.  But it’s not.  Yay . . . (typed with mustered and lackluster enthusiasm).  So tired.

On tap for today:  weeding the meadow a bit, taking a nap, weeding the garden a bit, the hopefully catching up on all of your blogs.

And George . . .
