Dirt Road Adventures – Celebrating Father’s Day

Hey Friends it’s time to look back at all that’s been happening on the Dirt Road this week.

We finished gathering field rocks (for the time being) and have secured our mulch with rows of rock boarders. It’s a lot of work but at least the rocks are free.

In other news, I enjoyed a fun girls night out with some friends this week. Do you spend time with your girlfriends? It’s so important for our mental and physical health to spend time with friends and you can see more tips on How To Plan Girlfriend Time.

We met at one of our new hot spots in downtown AsheboroThe Taco Loco Cantina.

Downtown Asheboro is becoming quite the hot spot with fun restaurants, lots antique and boutique shopping. If you are in the area, you should stop by.

Next we spent Friday evening with our daughter and son in law to celebrate Father’s Day at one of our favorite restaurants in Greensboro – Kau.

Brad received one of the items he choose for the Ultimate Father’s Day Gift Ideas Guide – the Apple Airpods Pro. It pays to help make the gift guide. LOL

This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.

In Case You Missed It

In preparation for this weeks Hawaiian Luau Supper Club theme, I shared a tutorial to make these Tropical Round Placemats.

One of my favorite Tours is The Bloggers’ Best Home Tours and here is my Shades of Blue Summer Farmhouse Tour. There are 30 homes on the tour and if you missed any, link here for all the inspiration.

For our Thrifting with the Gals monthly series, I shared How To Shop Barn Sales. Then I saw KariAnnes post – The Best Estate Sale Shopping Tips and thought you’d enjoy reading her tips as well.

Finally, for the Stars and Stripes Blog Hop, I decorated the She Shed Greenhouse with patriotic decor.

In addition, the Patriotic Ideas for She Shed Greenhouse was featured on CoCo’s – From the Front Porch and by Mary’s Saturday Meanderings.

In addition, Cindy at Farmhouse Friday featured How to Press Herbs for Botanical Art.
