The very first thing I would like to show you is...
a link to Racheal's Romantic Porch...
she had a lovely post on her many jobs...
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It puts a whole
NEW LIGHT on the life of a mom!! ENJOY! :D
I have been a very busy beaver this last week...
to start our week off Samantha took care of the
grandkids, Scoti went to Mo. for the two days for
work... She attended some meetings, and some
meet and greets too. Samantha had Brock and
Taryn at their house trying to get them ready
for the upcoming days of School....
I can't believe that the whole summer is gone
On Wednesday what I was working on
was my flowerbed up around the house!!
I was putting in daylilies, and new potting soil,
then mulch.... I have daylilies growing already!!!
My Chiropractor GAVE me about 4000 bulbs,
of daylilies... so I brought them home, and started
planting them... (I got the bulbs in the beginning of
August...) Been planting little by little...
anyway I finished the bed on Wednesday!! Will show
you pics of that in a later post...
But here is the daylilies already growing!!! :D
I am sooo happy to see them!
They are yellow, a light orange, (almost apricot)
a dark orange, and red!!! Can't wait
to see them bloom next year!!
I have put a new decoration on my front door...
It was a wreath my daughter Samantha made...
with a sign I made... Love Lives Here!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! :D
I went garage saleing this last Friday and Saturday...
it was the LeRoy Citywide!!! I had a blast just checking them
out... there were more than I think I have seen before!!
Here are some of the wonderful buys I got!!
A copper boiler, $10. Three oak chairs...$2.00 for all
three... and yes... one of them is painted!! But very sturdy chairs,
no work needed on these... other than to strip the one! They are
going to find a new home at my mom's house!!
My dresser for $20.
This is the most expensive thing I bought.
It is minus the drawer...
But it will be my new bathroom vanity
when we redo our bathroom!!
I have to find my bathtub now...
Then the reno will start!!!
And my last garage sale find... is this headboard!!
it is king size... but you all know where this one is headed...
right?? You guessed it... another bench in the making!!
and this is the components for this one...
four bentwood chairs, well kinda anyway...
I took the chairs apart... and what I am left with...
space out the chair seats....
place the seats really close...
What do you think???? Help!!!!
Need your imput!!!
Then I will place a piece of plywood over
the top, cut to fit... and put cushion on the seat!
Will show the finished product later! :D
I wanted to share some shots of the
gords that are growing around here...
in the yard... this is where the gords
got run over by the mower... shed their seeds...
and decided to grow!! Now let me tell you...
when it comes to mowing... that ain't good!!
And if your hubby does the mowing...
like around here... well... lets just say...
IF I want something to continue
to grow in the yard... I have to make mowing easy
or the hubby will mow it off!! In order to
accomplish this I decided I had a ladder
lets make good use of it... I helped them
to grow up it!!! Now, we can mow sooo much easier!!
Not to mention, they don't look like everyone elses.
Here is Taryn and I project for this growing season...
she wanted to plant some different flowers this year...
they are called Heritage Moonflowers...
And they are FINALLY BLOOMING!!!
We decided we would show them to you as they bloom
look when the start to put their buds out...
You can't tell it tooo well... but they have swirls
around the bud... there are five in all.
This is fuzzy... sorry all!!! It starts to
unfold... or should I say unswirl...
You can start to see where the lines
are from the swirls.....
And in the end... if you look really
close you can see the five lines...
it makes a beautiful star in the center!!
And ohhhhhh you need smell-a-vision!!!
The aroma is just wonderful!!!
As you can tell... maybe...
they are growing on the bed by the
front porch... and we can sit...
while breathing in the wonderful
Finally, in this same bed is what is called
an Angel Trumpet Bush!!! Here is the lovely
flower of this one!! It is in it's second year of
I will be able to post more than
once a week!!! You all enjoy your week...
I know I will!
Always be honest. Count your blessings.
Bear each other's burden. Forgive and Forget.
Be kind and tender-hearted. Comfort one another.
Keep your promises. Be proud of each other.
Be true to each other. Treat each other like you
treat your friends. But most importantly--
Love one another deeply from your heart.
I hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed days!!
