We had a great time on the boat for many years but it was time for it to gooooo. A sweet young couple bought it Saturday morning. Yahoo, the money is in the bank!
Hard to tell from this photo, tomatoes, cabbage, lettuce, garlic, yellow onions, strawberries, and herbs (that need to be divided).
Tropical dress for the little girls
Love the back.
And one in black. Val do you recognize this fabric? Leftovers from your Christmas purse.
Again with a sweet back.
I have driven by the lake a few times the past few days and thought I might miss the boat . Not a chance!! It had become one more thing for me to have to care for and pour money into. The boat slip rent was up to $1,800.00 a year, tax just over $500.00, insurance add an additional $200.00 not to mention gas for the day was well over $100.00 at last years prices. The big kids and Tyler are not real happy with us right now but they will recover! In our area we can rent a boat for around $250.00 a day, very doable compaired to what we were shelling out each year as owners. We have no regrets for purchasing the boat 5 years ago, our family has had some great times on it, lots of evenings out for hubby and I enjoying all the lakefront restaurants and such. We paid cash for the boat way back when, it's nice to get the money back in the bank with some depreciation of course but still a very fair price. I am so enjoying this simplifying our life!!!!
After Mason man and I did some running around this morning I got busy working on some pillow case dresses for the little girls. DD #1 wanted one in black for Karsyn without the ruffle and using a satin ribbon instead of grosgrain. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but in the end I really do like them. Less than $2.00 each using fabric in my stash (I have lots) and the purchase of the ribbon.
I really should be out working on the back garden getting a few more plants in before we have rain tomorrow but instead here I set wasting time on the PC. I am not too crazy about working outside at dusk right now, way to many snakes seem to be running around in yards lately. I am sure we have some as well.
