Weekend Rewind---


Weekend Rewind......

Horses--swimming----store---guns-------cookout---storms-- torn ligaments--all happened this weekend.





 Grandson wanted to see the Clydesdale Horses-me too-I just used him as an excuse.  These horses are beautiful. Of course, the storms rolled in and we didn't get to stay very long.

 Friday was spent at the Bristol Country Club's pool with our neighbors.


Then the storms rolled in. So--we-hub, daughters, and I went to do some work at the store-our new business adventure. What use to be......




                                       is now turned into-----


 future pharmacy and....




 future store with....

 coffee shop-the coffee shop will be located towards the back.
I must admit, we have done some serious work and it is looking good and I literally mean we (hub, daughters, uncles, and daughters boyfriends) have all helped.  Hopefully, we will be open next month.  I never realized all the hoops we had to jump through for little things-a permit to put a new awning on, inspection for this and inspection for that-a lot of red tape but I can see the end in sight and getting a little excited and nervous at the same time. Waiting on the rain to stop for a solid week  so we can finish filling in and putting the last siding on the building.

Not a fan of guns and have been scared of them all of my life, I was told I needed to learn how.  Brother-in-law said he would teach me.  Daughters have gun permits and needed to learn also.  Brother-in-law gave us a short course in gun safety and...
We began practicing with this...


 and then we all tried shooting a bottle that brother-in-law had hung on a tree.



 I never came close to the bottle! This made me too nervous.  Hub, #2 daughter, and I left shortly afterwards to begin preparing food for a cookout.  #1 Daughter and her boyfriend stayed.

Hub began cooking and.....


the phone rang-#1 daughter was swinging (brother-in-law has a porch swing) and the chain broke.  I could tell brother-in-law was nervous as he began telling me Amanda had hurt her foot. I got the bucket and filled it with ice and...

as soon as she got home made her stick her foot in.  
Then the storms came 


After eating, we all ventured out again and...


another round of the 'slush bucket'.  Boyfriend said it shouldn't be that painful...


he gave it a try and after a few minutes agreed with Amanda-the slush bucket can be painful.


While sitting out, Amanda began telling how she had gotten sick and almost fainted after the fall.  "What"?  "Why didn't you tell me earlier"?  I began asking question after question--I mean Gosh she takes her other state board test on Thursday and .....what now?  You know when you can't phantom what had happened and question and question keeps coming to my mind.  So that is why she didn't eat anything-you were still nausous from the fall.  She did not want to go and get an X-ray-so we kept doctoring her foot till the wee hours of the night....

Hey, the moon is out-no rain-at least for awhile.

I did take daughter to get an X-Ray the next day.  She has tore 2 ligaments and stretched the other ligament in her foot. The swelling has went down and she is keeping her foot elevated.   I just knew if she didn't get the foot X-ray-neither one of us would be worth a hill of beans!

Shoo...what a weekend.

  1. So sorry about the 2 torn ligaments. Hope she heals quickly. Sounds like a lot going on in your neck of the woods. I love your new venture and the place looks awesome! Best of luck to you.....

  2. Wow that must have been some fall the porch swing took. Hope it doesn't slow her down too much.
