A lifetime of joy in just a few hours

That's the brazzle dazzle way!

Saturday was "work" day in the Curly household. We're STILL painting our house, but were able to get about 6 hours of work in before the rain came.

Some highlights from the day:

While Mr. Curly painted trim on the barn/garage (don't worry, he shut off the power to the building due to being so close the wire) and I finished up facia/soffit trim on the house (the awning is on the ground on purpose, we took it off the family room window and we are NOT putting them back up!)

the curly kids were doing this:

Yep. They are digging holes in the dirt where our deck used to be. All those boards have been cleared of screws and splinters, so they are perfectly safe. Before the camera came out, they were sitting next to each other, digging a hole, trying to fill a knot hole in one of the boards. Too cute! And SO messy!!

In the morning Curly Boy still takes a nap. While he did that, Curly Girl found a "snake"
(it's a chain, I don't know where it came from, she probably dug it up from some previous family who dropped it below the deck)
Apparently, according to Curly Girl, snakes eat birds and charcoal dust.

Because of the rain, and Mr. Curly 's mid-week cleaning of the kitchen and dining room, I was able to get the house clean and complete a few projects.
All in all, quite a brazzle dazzle day!
