Ray and Jayden were busy bees outside this past Saturday. Ray did lots of yard work, he finished closing up the pool, and he and Jayden also washed the outside of the windows on the house.
Jayden did a good job soaping up the windows.
And he did a good job hosing them off.
Ray used the Windex Outdoor Starter Kit, he said one cloth washes twenty windows, it leaves the windows streak-free, and he said it was very easy to use. We were really happy with the results!
"Ray, don't forget the awning!" (He loves when I play the role of superviser! I'm surprised he didn't turn the hose on me!)
Jayden soon tired of this chore and decided to go next door to do some climbing.
I think he was trying to give my Aunt Florence and myself a heart attack!
Maneuvering his way around the garden hose.
"Look Aunt Florence! I'm holding on with only one hand!" (Doesn't Florence looked thrilled with that trick?)
Making his way to the end. Umma says, "Don't even think about turning the corner, Jayden!"
Whew! He's finally making his way back!
Here's one of Ray's tomato plants...
...it is still giving us a bounty...
...and there's still more to come!
Now that the 'boys' were done with their work outside, it was time for me to begin mine. The windows were now clean and shiny, but the furniture out on the front porch was a mess and needed a good cleaning...
...and a nice dressing for Fall.
I love this little decorative 'Nut House' pillow and there are many times that I think it's most appropriate for our house!
And now into the 'nut' house for a little snack. My sister Diane had dropped off these wonderful cupcakes to celebrate my daughter's birthday the day before, she got them from a bakery in Manhattan. They are so delicious and so rich. (There's also a little of Ellie's Birthday cake left, but I had enough of that already!)
Now which one should I choose? I love coconut, but I'm in the mood for chocolate.
I settled on a chocolate chip one, and I enjoyed it with a cup of coffee (with French Vanilla creamer added of course!).
There's lots more ~ 'wish you girls were here to share them with me!
