I invited my folks to have a barbeque in my backyard tonight. We had grilled lemonade chicken, fresh bread, salad, and grilled carrots. The grilled carrots didn't turn out too well, but the lemonade chicken was good.

The other day Christian was bored. He came into my room and told me that he misses 'the kids'. In other words -- Brayden, Cambrie, and Addie. He said he always finds something to keep himself and them occupied. (He wouldn't go for anything I suggested...he just wanted to play with the kids.) Cheryl, say hi to them for Christian and tell them he misses them.
My new lime tree. I got a lime tree to replace the peach tree that died.
We planted oleander bushes down the side of the house so I have something pretty to look at out the windows of my living room and kitchen.
I got my lilies! Lilies are my favorite plants but they don't last in the heat. The nursery guy said that these rain lilies should work if they are in the shade under a tree. Hopefully they do last as I would like to keep my lilies. There are also orange flowers that I don't remember the name of -- Mom suggested them.
Lastly, we planted a red yucca in the front yard. This spot is the 'danger zone'. No plant has ever survived there. I've tried several -- lantana, bush morning glory, ruella. Hopefully, this plant fares better.
Another good thing -- I learned how to add an emitter to the water line. Thanks Dad! Now I can do it all by myself. Of course Christian learned too and he can help me.

List of little projects:
