Hello! Long Time No See!

Hi everyone! I hope y’all are having a wonderful summer! I have missed visiting with y’all and reading up on the blogs I follow:)  I hope to be able to reconnect with y’all again. :) Please forgive me for not being around.   I promise to hang around more often.  Really, I do!  I have been busy the last few weeks with our boys since they’ve been out from school for the summer.  I appreciate those of you who dropped lil notes of concern for me.  I truly appreciate it! :)  I’m getting over the pain in my shoulder which turned out to be shoulder bursitis.

Oh! Let me share my latest baby! After this baby, I will not be able to splurge on big purchases but it’s ok! I’m so happy!

This is my baby…. A 2010 CTS Caddy.  Of course I had to choose it in red!!  Luv it!!


Did I tell  you that I luv it? :)


Thanks for letting me share my lil baby! 

So what’s happening in your part of the world?

Have a wonderful Monday!

My Little Chair Redo


Hi everyone!  I have to say that …..

“It's so hot that I have found out (the hard way) that my seat belt buckle could be used as a branding iron!”    I just got back from going into town and the thermostat said 115!!!  We are staying inside today!  And to top it off, I hurt my shoulder somehow.  Possibly a rotator cuff type of injury.  It was probably because I had picked up some heavy pine trees to plant.  My shoulder seems swollen compared to my other shoulder that does not hurt.  ugh  I am having to take Advil every four hours.  If it does not get better, I may have to go to the E.R. 


I love this little makeover.  I applied primer first and then spray painted it white.  After the paint dried, I used glaze to antique it.  I love the shabby look. 



I searched thru all of my photos to show you what the chair used to look like before.  Aaah, I love this picture.   My fall porch from last year. :)  Anyway, the chair used to be black and I love the way it looks in this photo. 


But for spring and summer, I decided to painted it white. 


I’m going to just sit inside my home and drink some iced cold tea.  Hoping that our weather will cool down a little bit soon.

Nothing Like a Good Natural Snack.

So refreshing!


Yummy! Aaah, sitting in the porch enjoying a slice of watermelon after school. :)  It’s a serious job to eat a watermelon and spit the seeds, you know.  *wink*  Yep, the porch had seeds everywhere.  I got the hose and just cleaned everything up. :)


Is that a watermelon smile I see? :)


Mmmm! Watermelon!

I hope y’all are having a great day!  It is terribly hot in my little part of the world.  We are expecting temperature of 111 in the next couple of days!  Oh help me! I will have to get up super early to work in my yard!

Busy as a Bee! & Updates…


I hope y’all are having awesome weather and lots of fun times too!

I am linking this with Tootsie at Fertilizer Friday. 


I been busy as a bee


here from gardening , cleaning, to graduations, and just relaxing as well. 

I had been so so busy and would check in quickly on my favorite blogs right before I’d go to bed!  I hope y’all don’t forget me! ha ha!! 

I went shopping today for some plants and found a garden center that had their palm trees for 70% off!   I had to buy two of them and I planted these big babies!   They were so heavy!


Oh!  Check out the booboo I made!  I broke this pot from the bottom!  I bought this pot in Fredericksburg, Tx so I will have to make a trip soon to Fredericksburg *wink*  Hey I’ll take any excuse just to go there.   It is beautiful and just relaxing there. IMG_6581

  I also bought some hanging baskets for 5.88 each!  I picked three of those!    I placed two of them here for now.  I need to get a couple of liners though.  My rose bushes are definitely not thriving.  I still see green on them so hopefully they will make it.


Here is a close up of the hanging baskets.  I don’t even know what these plants are called??  The leaves feel really waxy and small pink flowers grow from this plant.  I was told that it is a great plant for full sun.  Hmm?  Any ideas?


These Geraniums are doing really great here! 


This is my little getaway in the morning and in the evening as the sun is setting. :)  Hmm?  I see a little space next to the window that I could add something like a pot of flowers.  hmmm?  :)


I had been asked by my wonderful blogger friends about my oldest son and how is med. school going.  Well……he finished first year!  He got thru all of the final exams with flying colors!   He said that this semester was the hardest for him though.  The reason it was hard is more of an emotional thing.  One of the classes he took was Neuro-Science and he had to learn about Alzheimer’s.   His grandpa (my father-in-law) was diagnosed, oh about three years ago.  You can imagine how hard it had to have been for my boy to learn about the different stages and so forth of Alzheimer’s. :)  He made it though and his grandma (my mother-in-law) is very proud of him, as we all are. :)

I also had a graduate from high school!  My third son graduated from high school and we are very proud of him!  His plans are to go to college for computer science.  He is really into computers and I know he will excel in this field! :) 

So there you have it:)  A little bit of updates.

I hope y’all are doing great.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
