Long time no see!


Hello there prim friends! I can’t believe I’ve been away for 3 weeks! WOW! Crazy! It’s been super busy at Primcats house. The minute we saw that sun again it was OUTSIDE without a second to spare! There was SOOOOOOO much to do.

We did a major redo on the landscaping this year in the last few weeks. Rebuilding 11 year old beds, re-edging those beds, separating 11 year old perennials, replanting the hundreds of plants that came out of that, getting compost on the veggie beds, planting the veggie beds and the list goes on and on. We have worked our butts off! Felt great!!! I am so glad we have had the sun at least part of the time. After 2 months of straight rain we needed it!

I don’t have any pictures of the gardens today but I will get out there and get some taken. We are really proud to have completed so much in so little time. :)

The only fun news I have to share is that I got to meet Dierks Bentley last Sunday. Somewhere on someone's camera is our picture together but I don’t have it yet. I do have this though! Here is video proof I was there.

That’s me in the long sleeve white shirt and white bandana over his left shoulder on the right of the screen. :) Mr. Primcat is over my shoulder too. Pretty cool right.

I don’t know when but we will also be on CMT when they air a show about this. :)

He did his annual “Miles and Music for Kids” event in Columbus this year and we attended. There were nearly a thousand bikes there! They shut down all the roads for a 30 some mile police escorted ride. The line of bikes was 8 miles long! It was HUGE! Biggest ride we’ve been on.

Here is Dierks with the CMT guy.

You lookin at me? :)

Of course he was!


He was so friendly meeting and greeting EVERYONE!


He even gave a nice little speech to the riders!

Yep… somewhere about 850 bikes up there is Dierks!

And there’s the 250 behind us!   


After the ride there was a concert with Dierks, Uncle Cracker, Joe Nichols, Miss Willie Brown, and Josh Thompson. It was a really fun day!

That’s all for now friends! Hope to find some times to catch up on your blogs soon!

Until next time…

Simple Goods Show

A rainy Monday morning to you. I am seriously starting to think that the good Lord is gonna Ark us all again.


We have just had WAY to much rain this last month. Ohio hit the all time April record 3 days before the end of the month and it still rained everyday after that. Yuk. Everything is just a terrible muddy mess. I want to get out in my gardens and work them but I can't because it's such a disaster.

And I have completely given up on mopping the floors. They are just a muddy mess with 52 little muddy wet paws running in and out of the cat enclosure 1000 times a day. Soon I will have a nicely packed, fully dirt floor and I won't have to think about it at all. How's that for primitive? ;o)

The forcast is calling for only ONE day rain free this week. Wednesday. We can only hope we even get that!

I know you have all been waiting for my big Simple Goods purchase. I am so sorry I didn't get it posted over the weekend. We did go Ride the Harley Saturday all day even though it was cold. We just couldn't pass up the dryness. It was cold and cloudy most of the day and it barely reached 70 for about 2 hours. I was fully bundled from head to toe. And it did end up raining on us on the way home. It POURED at about 10:30 at night and we got drenched. But we rode 12 hours and 280 miles so it was nice to at least get the bike out even if we froze.

Yesterday was cleaning, laundry and coupon day. Not exciting but all necessary. :)

So here is my SG purchase! If you were paying attention on Thrifty Thursdays post you would have seen this in the back ground. 

Ta da!

I got a full set of Pewter dishes to serve 8 for my pie safe!


So pretty!


I got 9 large plates, 8 small plates, 8 goblets, 1 pitcher and 8 napkin rings.


I just love the look!


Besides the bonnet rack and pewter, I bought this last little item. A small Beeskeep purse which is in the front entry with the rest of the bee goodies.




So there they are. All 3 of my beautiful Simple Goods purchases.

Until next time...
