A Good Day Around Our Home and Outdoor Wednesday

Welcome to another Outdoor Wednesday. Hosted by Susan at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com. Be sure to swing by for a full list of participants and some wonderful outdoor spaces.
Each day around our home always brings new and different surprises. So, when Mr. P feels good he likes to be out on his toys. Yes, you all know what I'm talking about. Men and their toys. lol It always makes my heart sing when he's having a good day. They come so rarely anymore. Most days he spends sleeping.. so out we went for him to get in some play time. After all the rains we've had the driveway was in desperate need of being graded. We hooked up the blade scrapper and off he went.



So down the drive he starts. You can see a little better picture of the blade scrapper here.


I"m not quite sure why he stopped to look at the top of the barn, but he was sure intent on studying it. He sat there for the longest time. Must have been something that grabbed his attention.


. Looking back to see if things are coming out like he wants them too


Again with the stopping. Ummmm I wonder what has his attention? I never did figure it out.


Watch out here he comes.

Okay, we've decided to head up the lane this trip.


Stirring up lots of dust. Amazing how dry it is after all the rains we've had. Even Murphy has had enough and is coming back down where I'm sitting. lol





After playing on Little John for a while, he decided to get the Grasshopper out and do a bit of mowing.


Concentrating on doing a good job for me. There he goes that direction.


Now, lets go the other direction for awhile..

Even the birds are keeping a close eye on him. :-))
I think he might prefer the size and air conditioning of Little John. The mowing didn't last too long. lol


I'm so glad you popped in for a visit today. Don't forget to swing by Susan's for a full of list of participants. Thanks a million Susan for hosting such a wonderful event. I'll see you there... hugs ~lynne~

It's good to hear he had a good day today!

I am amazed at the amount of dust, even with all the great rain, we've had this year. We really haven't had summer at all! Makes me wonder what winter will be like!!

O, darlin', I enjoyed watching him work..I love his old hat, shading him from that hot sun. Bet you had a big ole glass of sweet tea in a glass of shaved ice...and maybe a lemon cookie?
Good Outdoor Wed. post..

You know Lynne, there is just something about a man and his John Deere tractor. It has always taken my breath away and will for the rest of my life. I can still see Grandaddy on his. I believe it is the hard work that they do and they love they have for the land. These pictures truly took my breath away. Brought back memories. Okay here is the latest honey. We have a surgery date. Monday - August 10th. It is going to be a long day. If I understood everything correctly it will be 15 hours at the least. A long day. We are going to need prayers come Monday. I will keep you posted honey I promise. I will need something to keep me occupied. Thanks for stopping by. Country Hugs, Sherry

I loved seeing he was having a great day! A is such a weird and horrid affliction. I enjoyed seeing him have an enjoyable time.
My mil loved lights and would fixate on how the sun would reflect on license plates and other shiny objects. She had been a fabulous artist. Right up to the day she died she could see and loved the beauty in all things.
Thanks for sharing...this made me smile!
