Yesterday, my father, nearly aged 75 did the following tasks:
1. Repaired the screen door that Sat Nam, the crazy dog we "adopted" for one week tore up that infamous day. If you need a reminder, read here.
2. Fixed and made more convenient several electrical outlets in our house
3. Went to nursery, bought an 8' X 4' raised garden bed and installed it with Oliver in our backyard, complete with lettuces, herbs, Swiss chard and strawberry plants.
4. Climbed on roof of guest cottage and re-tarred areas that were causing leaks inside.
How awesome is that?
Here are some random pictures from our day:

Quite a handsome family you've got there...ReplyDelete
Elizabeth, thanks for sharing your holiday. The table looks so cozy and inviting. The food looks delicious--how lovely to have your own private chef! And I loved "meeting" your family.ReplyDelete
Hope you are enjoying leftovers today. I'm sure looking forward to a turkey sandwich!
Your dad could be "Mr. Incredible!" .... And The Husband too .... Super heroes ;) ..... Hoping for you to have some Time with Your Chef - I know it's a crazy seasonReplyDelete

I cut my hand yesterday with a crystal candleholder, don't ask, and typing is an adventure, but I wanted to ask if I could adopt your Father - and your Mother too.ReplyDelete
Political differences aside, they both look like one could love them to pieces. Beside, anyone who goes out into the desert on a camel is my kind of people.
Could you please send your dad down here? I have a few chores he could attend to.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful family!
Thanks for sharing, sweet Elizabeth.
I would echo Ms Moon- can I borrow your dad?!!! What a guy!!! Your table is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, Elizabeth, with those books behind it and that lovely thick wood and the light...wow, I want to come! Happy Days, sweet lady.ReplyDelete
everything is inviting,ReplyDelete
the setting , the people,
What a gorgeous family! Now I see the resemblances so clearly. It looks like a feast made with such abundant love by your dear Husband. I wish he could have been with you, but I can tell that his spirit and talents nourished all of you.ReplyDelete
God bless you. xoxoxo
Looks like you had a lovely Thanksgiving. Take care.ReplyDelete
Your dad did all of that in ONE day? That's incredible really, and so wonderful. I loved seeing pics of your family!ReplyDelete
oh wow, your father is a SUPERHERO!!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
You're husband's not bad either, that dinner looks amazing.
Lovely family! these were great photos!ReplyDelete
Your family is beautiful. I enjoyed this :) At your dad's age, I'm sure he loves being important and helping out. The garden is very nice, and I'm a little jealous (I live in Wisconsin--There's no way we could plant anything right now!)ReplyDelete
Totally jealous. Always wanted a father like that. Glad you have him!ReplyDelete
Beautiful family! Makes me miss my own father desperately, though he never could have tarred a roof or moved electrical outlets--and gardening? Forget it. But it makes me miss him all the same. xxkReplyDelete
