A Picture a day for the Month of May (May 9th) - I've been slacking

This is what my mother-in-law got for Mother's Day. Her family putting a new roof on the old church. She's the caretaker there, and the roof was leaking very badly in several places. They were able to buy the metal for a new roof, and this weekend her 3 sons, her brother, and another friend of the family all pitched in to put it on. In this picture, my husband is the one on the bottom, his brother Josh is in the middle, and Uncle Chuck is at the top. It was very hot work, with many many wasps and wood bees buzzing around, but they got it done in just 2 days (with a rain delay in the middle of it). That was one proud mama!

Never too old to learn new things

So I was looking for a doll pattern, and I found this super cute free doll pattern. Only problem is... it has charts. I don't know how to read charts. No problem, I'll learn right? But it's in Russian. I don't speak or read Russian. Yay for Google translation. I was able to translate the written-instructions part of it, and decipher most of the symbols. Now all I need to do is learn to read a chart, and I'm plugging away at it. I can't wait to get it all figured out and make the doll.

My little grease monkey. He helped his daddy change out the starter on my car. He was very proud of his "mark of a man" grease all over himself. This is the same boy that last year made the statement: "I'm not a working kind of boy, I'm a sit on the couch and watch TV kind of boy"  Yeah, that's made me try to get him outside more.

A Picture a day for the Month of May (May 1st)

Well, the only pictures I took yesterday were some "in progress" pics of my current crochet project. It's supposed to be some sort of critter, I'm not entirely sure what it will be, though. Maybe a horse? (and yeah, I know I'm a day late, yesterday was my lazy day and I didn't do much of anything)
