That swing again!

First, before telling you about the swing...I am so excited and want to say "thank you"  and "welcome" to my new follower, "The Dancing Donkey".  "The Dancing Donkey" is a great blog that I thoroughly enjoy and look forward to reading every day!

Poppy surprised me Thursday morning by coming home with a board to build a seat for that darn swing I've dreamed about, talked about, posted about, seemingly forever! It is now finished and ready for swinging!


So what's the first thing I do...almost kill my foolish self by falling out of the swing!!!  Seriously!!!  Now we know why it is better to drill two holes in each side of the seat for the rope.   Like this image from "Wikipedia"...



This way the seat will not tilt backward or forward.  Foolishly, holding onto the phone instead of the two ropes, I sat down in the swing and it tilted backward dumping me out onto the ground with a thud!  Flat on my back! I  lay there looking up into that tree wondering, am I seriously injured?   Finally, getting my breath back and trying to stand up, Poppy comes running outside asking, "what happened to you"?  "I fell out of my new swing"!  What a sight this must have been!  Thinking about it now makes me laugh and laughing hurts with this sore back!!


 
Tonight we get our first hard freeze.  Not much left in the summer garden but peppers, so I picked everything...







Poppy left early yesterday morning going down home to see his nephews, Josh and Joey.  It is hard to believe that a month has passed since his brother Joe passed away.   Anyway, I am home alone for a couple of nights. 

Where does the time go???  I simply must get busy! :)  Thank you for looking at my blog!

Love,
Henny Penny
