Summer is not officially here but it sure feels like it. Dig out the flip-flops and sun hats and many lotions to keep us from burning up. We have had a ton of rain here, more than what we really need, and things are pretty saturated but these kids took advantage of the sunny warm day and had a ball.When was the last time you ran through a sprinkler?? A very long time for me. I felt bad, in a way, because so many are suffering in California with a bad drought. The waste of water would be hurtful to all those who are having to conserve every drop. Where I live we do not pay for the water and technically we are not supposed to waste it, but fun is fun as long as it’s just once in a while.
So also seen this week was this.. shocking…
Yes, blue lips.. they kinda took me off guard. I am not used to this new trend of bright unusual colors on lips.I have seen people on television wear all colors but not up close. We are living in 2015, the trends are all over the place. Retro clothing like bell bottoms paisley and platform shoes from the 70’s is back. I just don’t remember us using the purple,blue, black,green lips back then. Can you tell I am old and set in my ways?? It seems June is flying by someone last week posted that CHRISTMAS is only 27 weeks away. I prefer to keep summer alive.. have fun!!
This series of plates I saw at the Goodwill store and HAD TO HAVE.. Lyrics to Amazing Grace. Love the clouds.. I dedicated it all to Beth Marie and they hang in my dining area.
On the same trip I bought a candle.. an EMPTY candle. It was big enough that I could replace the inside with another candle. I am really “into” shells right now so this large one I could not resist. It smells like vanilla.
Mostly all I saw this week was 3 days and nights of loud machines and wet carpet and plenty of work cleaning up a big mess.My apartment was the only one with a lot of damage. Plumbers took 8 hours to clean out a tree root lined sewer that clogged up our entire building. It was HOT, noisy and stinky. Glad it is over and I did not have to pay the huge bill!!
It seemed like all the trees in town bloomed all at once. beautiful but not for someone with allergies.
This display gets an A from me..it was unreal looking. They were fresh and so colorful!
Near the entrance to my complex these bushes were so glorious, the smell was amazing.
First attempt at making a fake flower arrangement for outdoors.. I have changed it THREE times.. don’t know what the problem is with me .. but anyway.. had to bring it inside…weather changed and SNOW fell. I KID YOU NOT it got cold and stormy and very windy. Most everyone else took all the outdoor things inside too. Those are large shells I placed in the planter.. just can’t get enough of the beach I guess. Picked up a nice photo of Daytona Beach at sunrise for 1$. Framed and signed with date and what the photo was. Nice to know its origin. I liked the frame first BEFORE I knew what it was. Yes, it’s a little rippled in the frame so your eyes are OKAY!! ;-)
Poor neighbor’s garden had no idea SNOW was about to show up again. The flowers are drooping but still there. Snow clouds and covering the roof of the building across the way.. April 22. Last year we had temps in the 80’s!
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.
Please say a prayer for our dear friend Beth Marie DeShasier. I am sure that she and her family will appreciate them.
