We had a lake-swimming

watermelon-eating

house gazing

sea-doo riding

cliff-jumping

belly-laughing

kind of a weekend.

******

I’m gonna need a week to recover.

Hope yours was fun too!

I’m off to Dollywood again tomorrow

so say a little prayer.

I don’t do well when mixing

funnel cakes, 90 degree weather  and the dizzy discs.

I’d much rather sit in the shade in a rocker and

sing old country songs.

Maybe I’ll set up a collection tin and take requests.

And then if you’re lucky (or tragically unlucky)

someone will have a recording device.

Happy Monday!!!!

Edie-it looks like a super fun time. Wish I could be there!!! Have fun in Dollywood. I’m more for the rocking chair myself. Our temps were in the 90′s and now we’re in the 60′s with rain. I need some sun.

Have fun!!

Sounds like a lovely time.  The house is looking amazing! 

I’d pay to have you sing old country songs!  We’re planning on Dollywood this summer or fall.  Too bad I’m not there now.

That looks like so much fun! My 7 year old son peeked over at the screen while I was looking at the pics of your crew jumping from the rocks and begged to do the same. The house looks great!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!!!!!! Your sunset photo. What a wonderful weekend y’all had, next time invite me please. We love all of those things (Not  sure I’d jump off the cliff) but otherwise we’re up for it. Hahaha!  Love the house, so excited for y’all and thank you for letting us in on all the planning, it’s going to be stunning when you’re done.

I really enjoy seeing your house come along! We are building right now too. I picked the same grid pattern on our windows. I’m going for a cottage look! I’m so glad project restoration is moving along so well for you!

Oh Edie!  That is some house you have got there!  It looks like a magical weekend.  My offer is still open to helping decorate (especially if I get to look at the house from the lake at some point)!.  Hope you and your family are well.

  Your water/family time looks great.  Love the house.  The porch looks like it will be a great place for coffee in the morning.

First of all, that picture of the sunset is one of the most beautiful that I have ever seen!  Gorgeous!  It looks and sounds like you had an awesome weekend!  Good luck at Dollywood!  It has been *gulp* decades since I’ve been there.  Would love to take my teenager there.  Can’t wait to see the video of your front porch concert! :-)

Dollywood or watching the sunrise, hmmm not too difficult a choice. I’d stay put at the lake.

i was a drama queen jumping off. It took a lot of coaxing and making preliminary funeral arrangements :)
But I finally did it!!
