Happy Mother's Day

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Mother's day! I have been a bit lax in my blogging lately, though for a good reason. Habitat for Humanity has kicked off it's National Woman's Build Week (May 2 - 10). At the local chapter that I attend we tore down, literally, an old restaurant (Big Mama's - loved the name), and we'll construct a new house in it's place. My poor sissy arms are done in form the rubble removal, sledgehammering and salvaged brick stacking. I am especially in awe of my beloved blue-heads! These woman do not know anything but full steam ahead. I have only managed to finish one more page on Dutch Beauty. I did however read a really interesting book titled 'My Lobotomy' about a twelve year old boy whose step-mother pushed this NORMAL boy into undergoing a lobotomy! He is fine now, but had an rough life. It's a quick read, I recommend checking it out of your local library.
Last month we went to Minnewaska on a beautiful day and the falls were so pretty that I though I would share a few pictures of them.

Our Mulberry trees are in full bloom too.

Your photography is always so lovely and crisp!
Maybe one of these days I will figure out how to take good clear pictures!(LOL)!
Kudos on your Habitat work! I have always admired people who had those skills!
