Hi Everyone, I just wanted to pop in to say hi and to thank everyone for the lovely anniversary wishes!  I would love to tell you that Mr. Tide and I traveled to Paris or Fiji for our special day, but we stayed much closer to home.  We did go to another city, visited some wonderful shops, ate good food, and managed to wander around in the heat, so we did have a wonderful time.  I'll share some pictures of our little adventure in another post!

Mr. Tide took the entire week off so that we could not only celebrate our anniversary, but also to get some things done around the 'ole homestead, and we are ticking off things on our to do list.  Like major yard work, and starting to clean out our garage in nearly 100 degree heat...woohoo, how romantic right?!  I have to admit that it felt good to be dripping in sweat today as we are on a quest to finally park a car or two in there after nearly 4 years!

I'm afraid that's as exciting as it gets around here at the moment, with more sweat and hard work in the plans for the rest of the week and into the weekend.  Misty Belle would like to say hi too, and she hopes you are having a relaxing and productive week, and that those of you who are suffering with this heat will stay nice and cool...she highly recommends using a sprinkler! ;-)


  1. Actually a usable garage sounds like a good tradeoff for all that hard work and sweat! So glad you even had time to get away for your anniversary. Misty Belle must be a hot doggie too, stay cool Kat! xo ~Lili

  2. Clearing out a garage so that a car can be stored in it seems to me like a really good thing to do.
    Not that I've ever done it, mind you. We have a double garage that has only ever seen the hulk of an in-restoration 1956 TR3.

  3. woo hoo sounds like it was a great time :) i love that mister tide took off a whole week! that's lovely!

  4. Hi Misty Belle!

    Sounds like you two had some great time away together. And a clean garage? What's that? ;-)


  5. So glad you had a wonderful time, it is not back to domesticity - but when it is shared it feels less like hard work all round.

    Glad someone has got some heat - we are in a cold spell over here in blighty.

  6. Hey Kat....Hey Misty Belle....!

    Nice to hear you've had a LOVELY Anniversary break....Even though it's included some work about the house I bet you've enjoyed sharing the load....!!

    Have a WONDERFUL weekend when it rolls around to your side....!

    Cheers for now,
    Tamarah :o)

  7. I'm glad you and Mr. Tide had a nice visit to another town! Good luck with the garage! It is really hot here too!

  8. Now that's my idea of how to get sweaty and close on an anniversary...a perfect example of true love!

  9. I don't think we own a sprinkler, but now I'm wondering if Rowdy might enjoy having one. He spends a lot of time outdoors. The thing is, we don't have strong water pressure since we are on a well and not city water and I'm not sure a sprinkler would work very well... must check with Hubby and see.

    So glad you had some away time and enjoyed yourselves!


  10. Look at all the fun and romantic things you are doing! :) Nothing says togetherness like cleaning and sweating. :) I am so glad that you got a chance to escape for a moment too, it sounded like a wonderful day. I hope you get some more things ticked off your list and also relax for a bit this weekend!!
    Hugs to you!

  11. Staying home and doing things around the house are my favorite vacations. But remember to relax some! Cute photo!

  12. Welcome home!
    So glad you took time
    for just YOU!!

  13. Happy silver anniversary and have a wonderful "stay-cation"!


  14. Belated Happy Anniversary... Glad to hear you enjoyed a wonderful day together, even though it wasn't Paris of Fiji. :-)

    Now, we haven't been able to fit even one car in our garage for nearly nine years.... come on over! It's COLD here.

    Warm blessings,

  15. Sounds like you guys did just what we love to do...spend time together.

  16. Happy Anniversary - and please give big pat-pat hellos to beautiful Misty Belle!


  17. Glad you're enjoying yourselves. I'm staying in out of this heat!

  18. Happy Happy Anniversary! I am so happy you had some time with your hubby!Even working together is bonding time!

  19. I had a high of 58 today. Now, I'm not going to go so far as to say I'd like to trade you, but how about we split the difference?!
    Glad you had a wonderful anniversary!

  20. miss misty belle has one precious face!!
    happy belated anniversary! I think your festivities;) sound perfect, as it's really the little things in life (like getting house projects done!) that are the most important, yes?!!

    happy weekend! and here's to cooler temps!

  21. A bit belated, but happy anniversary, Kat!
