Beating the Heat and exploring

The Summer Dog Days are here.  While the heat has been kicking we've been trying to stay cool in a house with no central air.  Just window units in 2 rooms.  So weve been trying to beat the heat. Meanwhile we've been exploring what's around us.  We realized that we have Black Blue Berries.  Her are some pictures of what we found and the fun we had picking them.  So i'm not going to mention any names... but someone could not wait to have a "little" berries while we were picking them.  OK, 2 of people...

Yeah, that's the flag!

 Wrong time wrong place for somebody... Nora didn't traumatize him too much though!

 Look at these 2 beauties!  Only thing they need is to have their beautiful Mama in the picture as well.  

Thanks again for visiting and More posting to come.

3 Weeks in...

It's been 3 weeks here in Indiana and we are enjoying ourselves and enjoying the country.  Sharing some pictures of a tree swing that i built. Here is the web site i used to build the Tree Swing

Here is our nightly sunset.  This particular night we had some clouds which actually made it even more beautiful, but the sun sets right over those trees every night!!

So here is the tree where the tree swing will be situated. It's the branch that is going left.  It's on the front lawn of the house.  

 Here is a close up of the limb.  It's about 20 feet in the air.

Here are the supplies that are listed at the top

 Here is a good shot of the front porch of this old house.  On the right in the middle you'll see a whole in the deck.  Watch Out!!  Dont trip!

Because I can tell your curious, i took another picture of it. 

 Step 1 is to drill 5 screws into the longer board
 Don't forget to use Gorilla Glue

 Next drill the holes in so they can accept the rope

Here is the top side of  the board

Now the rope is through the board

Make sure to tie good knots!

Another shot of the board with the rope.

Thanks for stopping in and please come back soon!!  I'll try to keep updating pictures on a weekly to biweekly basis.
Cheers and Chat Soon!
