Flip Flops!

Today is the first day I wore Flip Flops this year!

I started my outside chandelier   Hard to tell with this night time pic but I think it is gonna be cool when the ugly brass is painted black (if the wind would EVER stop sweeping down the plain!)


And to day is the 7th blog hop of Bead Soup.  Here's my entry.
To end this wonderful day we are about to get more rain.

Can't get better than that!

Not Enjoying this


Not enjoying this new blogger.  I am having a hard time posting as I don't have a clue what I am doing.  Kinda feels like I have to learn this stuff all over again and I never learned it in the first place.


  • Good excuse for not posting for months.


  • Had strep throat the last week.  OH.MY.GOSH!  How does one stop the pain?  Nothing worked.  Even the doctor told me "just tough it out".  I am NOT tough  :o)


  • Time to shop for a Spring/Summer back ground for this blog.  
  • Sleep is still not my friend.  I so need a good eight straight!

Friday 13

Friday 13 pictures of my garden before the storm hits and blows all my hard work away  :o)
 A couple of hungry moths did not care that I was standing so close.
 Front porch flowers in full bloom before their time.  These have been blooming since the first of March.  Unbelievable nice weather this spring.
 This is were I leave all my cares.  Work problems are buried under those hostas.  Co-worker problems are left under the bricks.  I come in the house dirty handed with a clean soul.
 I hide critters in my garden.  Critters of all sorts are born in my garden.  (Gopher go HOME)
 I just hope the hail does not ruin all these beauties.  The hosta leaves are their main beauty and hail really shreds them to pieces. 
The weatherman tells us it is getting more dangerous with each ticking moment.....not that they are loving all their drama but by Sunday Oklahoma could pretty much be blown to Texas  :o)   if the weather people are to be believed.  (Pray they are wrong)

Hope the tornadoes stay in the sky. Hope all of you sweet people stay safe.

RAIN!!!

Cool beautiful rain!  The cool makes the bones in my foot ache but I can almost hear my sleeping trees sigh with glee as they receive the cool hydration.  

I received my supply list for the soldering class.  Which of course means I will *have to* spend the week end setting up my studio, checking my supplies, ordering in supplies........so excited!!  I surely hope I am good at soldering as I've got some plans going on in my little head........total sigh of contentment.


Sorry, can't remember where I got this picture.  Cute envelope.
I want to learn how to make something like this cute envelope.  How on earth did the artist make that tiny little heart?  Isn't this just adorable?!?!?!   

Hope you can have a crafty week end also!
