How to make s’mores out of lemons…

The Watkins Castle was under attack by lemons last weekend!
Ok, not really…but, it sure felt like it!Our hedges had grown into the sewage pipe, causing a backup.
So every time I tried to wash the laundry, the basement toilet
would “wash” the basement floor! Ummm YUCK!

When my husband couldn’t pull the rug up from under the wall to dispose
of it, he did a little investigating by tearing down a part of the wall…only to
find out that our house has a GIGANTO crack in the foundation!  A tree
is trying to grow into our house!  I LOVE nature!
Just not when it comes over uninvited, LOL!
So, needless to say, by the end of the night, my husband and I were exhausted.
We had dished out $450 to the plumber & still had tons to do for the rest of the issues ahead.
But, the house was still standing (even if a little wet & crooked).
We were all together.
We were going to be alright.
We thankfully had the $ to pay the plumber.
There were still so many reasons to celebrate!
So, equipped with a cool idea to use a flower pot, foil & charcoal that I found on Pinterest,
we laughed loudly, shared silly stories, swapped sticks, graham crackers, chocolate &
marshmallow containers & enjoyed our sweet treats in our backyard under the stars.
It was pure peace.  Not even the sourest of lemons could take that away from us.

So the next time you get handed some lemons, yes, make some lemonade…just dont
forget the s’mores.
Life is what you make it!***************************************************************************************************************
