County Fair

What a blast.  The annual county fair with roosters, chickens and all kinda farm animals.  And the exhibits, I have talents I didn't even know might qualify for a blue ribbon.  Just wait till next year!

Too bad the blue ribbon obscured the head of this beautiful rooster.  I told the people waiting for me to take the picture that this was Suzy's bird.  They were impressed.

The rodeo was fun too.  Best part was watching about 50 kids chase calves around the arena to grab a ribbon for a prize.  Great hometown fun.

Official Texans

Yep, we've finally made to Official Texan Status.  We're the proud owners of a truck that's too big to fit in the 3 car garage.  Who woulda thunk?

Crackers & A New Table Top

It's been a good weekend here on the river.  The weather is getting better and the Mertz family have been here 3 days in a row.  I made rye crackers on Saturday that were delicious with swiss cheese.
This morning we went to a Gospel Brunch with friends and then home to work on sanding and painting reclaimed floor boards for an outdoor coffee table my DH will put together.

Here's how they'll look put together.  They'll be cut to size, sanded and finished with a shellac to protect them from the elements.  More pictures to follow.

Our Barn Door

This is it, finally refinished and hung on the vintage hardware.  It functions beautifully and really adds a lot of personality to the room in addition to the privacy for the guest wing of the house.  

The backside is a different color and look but I forgot to take a photo of it so I'll add it soon.
