* ~ The Holiday Weekend ~ *

I spent most of the day Saturday working in the garden. Saturday morning I pulled weeds and chopped for almost 2 hours. I forgot my gloves and ended up with a nasty blister from the hoe. Then Saturday afternoon DH ran the tiller down the middle of the rows and I pulled more weeds. The garden looks fairly well , but we need rain. Hopefully we'll get some this week.

Ouchhh .......................................................... !
We went to my Mom's on the 4th , it was great to see family , friends and enjoy some good food together. Although I didn't see any fireworks this year , I did see a glorious sunset and that was the perfect show for me. Hope you all had a great holiday weekend !
~ Many Blessings ~

Lovely weekend except for that nasty blister. Hope you get some rain for your garden - I'd send you ours but it has finally decided to be sunny here - after a very drizzle 4th.

Your garden looks very nice and tidy. I need to pull weeds in our in-ground garden. Much blessings to you JoyceAnn.

Good Morning JoyceAnn...
Your garden looks wonderful and you can see the effort you go to!
Blisters are not much fun though!
We need rain too and it has been passing us by each day and going north of us. Let's hope and pray we both get some! :)
Enjoy your week and Many Blessings!

The garden looks great. Sorry to hear about the blister. I so wish I could send you some of our rain. I'd love to be able to get a blister from working in the garden. Right now I need muck boots and a snorkel to go into my garden.

Hi JoAnn ~ Please feel free to send any extra rain our way , we would greatly appreciate it (LOL).

Hi Vickie ~ Remember to wear your gloves , we don't want matching blisters (LOL).

Hi WolfSong ~ If JoAnn and Millie send rain my way , hopefully a cloud will drop some over you too (LOL). Seriously though , will pray for rain for the both of us.

Hi Lib ~ Thanks for the lovely comment!

Hi Millie ~ Muck boots and a snorkel in the garden (LOL), thanks for that image , it put a smile on my face.

Hi Flassie ~ I've been so busy that I haven't taken take to put anything on it. I have kept it washed , it's healing pretty good. I may put some of that pine salve on it tonight , now that you mentioned it.

~ Peaceful Blessings ~

Your hand looks like mine. I hate wearing gloves so keep blisters on my hands. Hope you get rain soon. Have a blessed day!

Hi Peggy ~ I hate wearing gloves too , but I wear them when I hoe or I always get a nasty blister. I was just to lazy to walk back to the house and get a pair. I need to take a pair and leave them under the shed , near the the garden I guess. Hope your week is going well.

~ Be Blessed ~
