A Day Of Fun.

I set out on this fine warm morning to see what the garage
sales might hold for me.  Instead I found myself looking
at landscape.  The first one I didn't even think of
taking any pictures.  Why should I?   I was looking for
stuff.  But when I came to the second one
I had to ask if I could take a pic or two.  She was very surprised.

She said yes and led us to some nice conversation. 

This flower to the right was as bid as my hand wide opened.
This started my mind gasping with joy.  She told me that they
weren't as big as they have been.  And this led her to show me the one
in her back yard.

 I must say this one wasn't as impressive as the other one but
I was happy a stranger let me talk flowers with her.  And her deck was so
lovely.  I didn't dare as to take a pic of that unless I wanted her to call 911
on me.

My next adventure took me to our antique mall which my brother and sis-in-law
have 2 booths.  Went to see what they had new.  As I was looking at all the booths
I found this cute little red wagon.

 I looked it over and walked away.  I came back and looked at it again.
walked away.  Then I said...what the heck.  It's mine.  Only $19.00.
I thought it was a good deal.  And I really wanted it.

In the same booth was this picture.  I thought it was very interesting.
What was she looking at?  Or...What was she thinking of?  Hmmmm
maybe a fling with her boyfriend last night.  And momma is looking out the window for that scoundrel.  I passed on this one. 

I had to take a pic of this.  My mom always talked about these dolls.  It was
is good shape but I didn't want it.

And just as I had thought my 3 year old grandson would love to tug the wagon around.
In fact that same day he wanted to pull it around the sidewalk.
And guess what?  He stubbed his big toe and I had to pull him home in the wagon.
See how perfect his arm is to pull.  I am a little taller and my arm is a little longer.
So yes I had to bend over a lot.  My poor back.  By that time of the day it was up
in the 90's.  Time to go home and fix the toe.

I had a good day all in all.

Keep cool.  today it will be hot again and tomorrow we hit the 100's.

Thank you for reading and Blessings to all.

Time does pass to quickly.
Morning comes and you make 
your "TO DO" list and before you know
it the day is gone.  Each morning brings a
fresh chance to start all over again.

And again and again.  But when you
accomplish your list how free it makes
you feel.

My Lovely mother turns 80 on June 23.

This pic was taken 5 years ago on Easter with 
my oldest daughter and my grand son.  We all 
have aged. But youth has helped the two on the left.
Mom and I ...well.  You know us women.  I need to exercise 
and mom's age is starting to take a tole on her.
Aches and pains don't let us get out and play like we once did.
No hours of shopping.  No trips to other towns.
I feel robbed from spending the time with her that we once did.
But I do know we need to enjoy the time we have right now
and each and every day. 

My Sib's and I are throwing her a small party to celebrate
her turning 80.  I have asked all my friends and 
church members to send a card to her.
Hopefully to my house so she can have a 
huge surprise with all the cards. It will be such fun. 

I'll post pics of the adventure when it's over.  I 
have an update photo of mom but I 
didn't upload it before I started.  Another thing to 
put on my  "TO DO"  list.

Hope all your "to dos" get accomplished this weekend.  
If not...
May God grand us all another day to have a

Blessings and Love to all.

Vacation at Home

Vacation at Home

I went to see a friend the other day and 
we went outside to enjoy the warm morning.

What a fresh and relaxing spot to pretend
you were on a get away.

Even the dog thought it was a good place to rest.
I guess this is his favorite place to groove.

Love the happy flowers on her little barn.
 Wouldn't this be a nice little play house for children.
Heck, I'd like to stash my stuff  in here.

She likes to decorate in the "beach" style.

So for today I pretend I'm in my own Paradise.
Throw on some Kenny Chesney, put a drink in my hand
and we'll lay and wait till the sun goes down.  

After all it's 5 o'clock somewhere.

Rabbit, Rabbit

Did anyone ever tell you that on the first day of a new month
when you jump out of bed you should say
"Rabbit, Rabbit" ?
Today is June 1, 2012.
Can you believe it?  I can't.  As always I forgot to say it.
But  I did after I got up.  

So... if saying it will bring you GOOD LUCK.
Will forgetting to say it bring BAD LUCK?
I think NOT!

A N Y W A Y 

Jo Ann fabric is having a 50% off all scrapbook
supplies.  I stopped yesterday and got more then
I should have.  oops.  But I started playing with it last
night.  I see many things coming out of my 
new stash.   Can't wait to get back to playing
with it.

I will show my stash soon.

Have a lovely 1st day of June. 

 My Mother turns
80 on the 23rd of this month.  I've got to throw her
a bang up party.  She doesn't want a big
shin dig.  So all the bling with just Family.

God Bless.
