Dollar Tree | Halloween Books/Storage Boxes

Dollar Tree | Halloween Books/Storage Boxes

While I am not big on the macabre style of Halloween decorating I wanted something cute for the coffee bar that was still spooky.  I saw these storage boxes in the Dollar Tree when I went to buy penny wrappers and thought they would be great because not only do they look like books they open up to hide your other junk in them. I think there we...

Nature's Daily Canvas | Sunflower Joy

Beneath a cloudy blue sky, nestled in between miles of corn fields...a vision of yellow joy came to view.  As far as the eye can see these little sun worshipers stood at attention while butterflies and bees happily gathered their nectar one flower at a time. I stood there in awe of it all, taking in the serenity of this place...this part of Nature's Daily Canvas.

Life Home and Backyard | August Hummingbirds

 While visiting my Aunt bringing her dinner after her surgery I couldn't help noticing the little flashes of something outside of her window.

Hummingbirds!

These little ones are super fast eaters and it took some time to finally capture these two beauties (with my cell phone) but I got them.

Woman's Day | 34 Painted Pumpkin Projects for the Best Ever Halloween | My Minion Pumpkin Project

Woman's Day | 34 Painted Pumpkin Projects for the Best Ever Halloween | My Minion Pumpkin Project

It was just after one am and, as per usual, I was still awake doing the last few things that needed my attention before closing out my day.  The air conditioners hum in the bedroom was not drowning out the sounds of the fireworks still booming outside of my window and all I want is to rest my eyes and fall asleep.

While checking out the last few emails that needed attention I noticed an email alerting me to a new back link on my blog.  What a nice surprise to see that Woman's Day used my 2013 Minion Pumpkin Craft Project for their Painted Pumpkin Ideas for the Best- Ever Halloween Post this past June 23rd.

The Peace of the Days Uninterrupted

The rain is pounding against the freshly cleaned windows as I sit here in my office watching as the sky changed from a shade of bright blue to dank grey in a matter of moments.

 

I had big plans for the day... well, for the week really, but with constant weather interruptions of wetness and the untimely dizziness currently happening in my head, the gardening is taking a breather for a time.  It is hard to put mulch down onto flower beds when your head is trying to be planted in those same beds.

March 14, 2017 Winter Blizzard Stella Attacks

March 14, 2017 Winter Blizzard Stella Attacks



  This was the calm before the predicted storm. And the snow fell and the world was quiet for hours.  For a time it stopped and the sky turned blue and the sun peeked out briefly. And then it began to squall all day. Winter Storm Stella dumps 27" of snow over the course of two days!

Just when you think winter is in the rear view mirror and spring is just around the corner...this happens.  And coming this Tuesday, the weathermen here are predicting a coastal storm bigger than the March 14th storm of 1993.  Oh Boy.  I woke to find the snowstorm they said was coming overnight; 4-5 inches worth of the whit...
