Have you noticed that Nana Diana is back?? Boy I have missed her. She'll start you day off with a laugh usually. We all need to laugh, it's good medicine. Hope all of you had a good day. I got out and away for a bit today. Just tired of chores. Well I think I'll go on the porch and relax for now. xoxo

My husband has been gone for 3 days counting today. No, don't put out an APB...he is over my daughter Karen's, helping her husband do the roofing. The thing is, now I have had some time, to do everything . I may even wash windows, outside, today.
Thank goodness for squeegees. I put vinegar and hot water in a bucket, get the squeegee and some paper towels. Wash the window with the sponge side of the squeegee. Then use the scrapping side, wipe down, then use the paper towel to wipe the blade of the squeegee. You will never have streaks, and it goes so fast. Then you can use the water and paper towels to clean the sills. I know we all have our methods to clean things, but this has really worked for me.
I will find some time for fun today, also. xoxo

These photos are of our Japanese maple( drawf) in the front flowerbed. A little pot of violas, that I planted in with the moss, that was in the pot. They are getting along nicely, the moss and the violas. The bottom picture is a coral bell plant. I love the color of it. Later some wee bell flowers will appear on wispy stems.
I am heart sick about the lose of lives and homes in Oklahoma. Will all of you,please,keep these people in your thoughts and prayers? xoxo

We have some carpenter bumble bees around our dri-gas tank....yikes, they are very aggressive. I looked on line for ways to take care of them....paint the treated lumbers around the tank. Because those bees return every year. They are paired bees...honest to pete....I have never heard of that before. They do not colonize like other bees. Dang, I am older than dirt and still learning, wow. But now that will have to be done next winter/spring...I am going to call the gas man and warn him. xoxo
Why is it whenever things seem to have worked out, Blogger messes up again. I am going to blame them, because I have just read where someone else was having trouble making a post. My problem is when my page comes up to make a post...it's different than I am used too seeing. I hope all of you are safe , after all the storms. Please be safe. I'll check my site later today. xoxo

I had a great mother's day. Hope all of you did as well. I have been in limbo, worrying about two of my daughter's lately. One lost her job, and one was diagnosed with diabetes.
Karen, has met with a dietician and endocrinologist. She's going to be the brave tough girl, that I know her to be, and get control of her health.
Parents you can't try to be tactful and drop hints...just tell your children . I have warn my girls about diabetes since they were small.
Kathy got a job, just a month from losing the job she didn't like . I will say she was on line everyday looking. She has had numerous interviews. She landed a job, just 10 minutes from her house. I feel so much better today. xo

Once thing about Mrs. Chancellor...she wore all the big rings. We used to call our mother Mrs. C , because she loved rings also. I remember watching the show with my Mom. I can also remember watching it from the first episode.
I was hoping the show would have had a tribute to Jeanne today. They surely will soon.
It's going to rain here later and can get severe. I'll be doing inside chores. Hope all of you are safe. xoxo

After we left goodwill , we came here and watched birds. Then I fixed us a bit of lunch. It turned out to be a great fun time. We needed this day together. Jeanie likes junking even more than I do. She has recently taken up bird watching, so that is a couple of things we have in common. Those are the fun things, for us. I truly enjoyed my day with Jeanie. xo

I want to thank everyone who sent me well wishes. I hate feeling sick and I try to fight it. Your wishes, my sister Jeanie calling me , my daughter Karen and granddaughter Savannah bringing me flowers....well it all lifted my spirits. I feel great today. Thank you so much. xoxo

When I arrived at Liz's , she was putting something in the oven . she goes off to get dressed. Emma says her ear is hurting. She was running a slight fever. So when Liz is dressed, she gave Emma fever meds. and Matt goes to the store for ear drops. Then Liz is trying to find someone to watch Emma. That is awful short notice....so guess who watches Emma? Yes, me. What could I do ? So Liz's family goes to the ceremony and I stay with Emma.
Emma started to feel better and I surely hope she did okay today. But after I get home, I start to feeling rather sick myself. Can't say what it is or was. I woke up with a headache. It is easing some..not taking anything for it, because I am not sure it would stay down. Then I realized, I had not drank anything for over 8 hours , at my daugher's house. Probably a bit dehydrated. I have had about 3 glasses of water already.
I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend...I also hope your plans worked out . xoxo

When my mother moved in the house , that I called the little red house on the corner...there were three lilac bushes in the front yard. One died, shhh, we kids were jumping over it too many times. Mom used to yell at us for that. We were a pack of wild things, I am sure. But mom loved the lilacs and the little group of irises that were under the picture window. Honestly, other than some peach trees, violets and dandilions...we never had any flowers anywere we lived. Heck, we hardly had grass from all the thundering feet running around our house and yard. We always had a dirt ring around our house. When we grew older and left home , one here and one there, the grass grew and mom had a nice lawn. But I think in her heart she would have loved having that ring and us kids more than any lawn. Oh by the way, there were eleven of us kids...that's twenty-two thundering feet. I bet that ground is still hard packed. :):):)
