A place to keep up with the Consford family of San Augustine, Texas.

Our Lord has been so good to us.

A Facelift for our yard

We never know what will happen from day to day at our house.  I can plan to do one thing and before I finish my coffee someone has replanned my day.  Buster planned to clean out his wood shop.  It is a mess and needs to be done.  I was telling him several things I would like for him to work on in his wood shop.  I was going to put the last coat of paint on my kitchen.  Then that project would be complete.  In true time, the phone rang; Betsy wanted to know if Jayne (12 years) could come make a birthday cake in my kitchen.  It is a surprise for her sister's birthday. 

Buster went outside and looked around.  His sister and her son came over for a visit.  They are going through a hard time right now and needed a diversion.  Buster decided this would be a great time to dig up all our bushes and move them.  It was very pretty outside.  With the extra help it would be a quick job. 
He loves working on his BobCat.  It does come in handy with jobs like this one.   He pulled all the bushes up and started planting them in different spots in front of the house. 
While all that was going on outside, inside we are just as busy with the cake making.  Jayne does love decorating cakes.  At 12 years old she does need guidance.  We started at 11:30am and finished at 5:00pm.  We were all tired when we finished.
Jayne wanted a 4-leaf clover for 4H, a basket ball, soft balls, and reeses peanut butter cups, and JO JO written around the bottom.  Her family calls Josie, "Reese Jo".  She did get all of what she wanted.  Yea for Jayne.  It turned out just fine.
Maybe next time we will get those other jobs done.  For now, we are tired, our family was comforted for a little time, and Jayne got another beautiful cake made for her family.
