Just because......

I loved them at first sight! Pink, a bit wilted, perfectly shabby! So I bought them for myself! Yes...I do tend to buy myself flowers all the time. I love fresh flowers around the house to brighten my day. Hubby occasionally brings them home...but in between I need to fill my flower addiction! One time a friend of mine saw me in the store with some in my cart and asked what are they for? I told her..for me of course! Lol! She replied that she never buys flowers. I thought how sad!Actually now that I'm thinking about it I should go buy her some! Everyone needs to have fresh flowers around once in awhile. Anyways ,I thought I would share my bouquet with you. Have a great weekend!

On my mind lately

It's amazing to me to think my son will be behind the wheel in a couple of months. Such a scarry thought actually on my mind. I myself don't like to drive if I don't have to ,so the thought of teaching my son is boggling. I know my husband will be doing most of it and he'll take classes but... Oh my! So lately all the talk about is which car he would like. It ranges from an old Ford pick up trucks to a Jeep wrangler to a mustang. Lol! We shall see! Anyways ,it's definately a time in my life where I have to start to let go and this is hard! We all did it and are or will be going through, it but I'm not looking forward to it. I have to do this three times. Then I'll have five vehicles in my driveway...imagine that!I guess I'll be aging very quickly soon! Just thought I would share what's been on my mind. Have a great day!

Just one of those days...

It's a dark and dreary, rainy day. So it looks like a day to clean inside and to do the laundry. Fun! Fun! Fun! We tend to hang dry alot of our clothing. I have those metal rollers to hang our clothes on hangers and the folding laundry thingy to dry other garments. They will be air dried in the house fresh outside smell today. I love that fresh clean smell when you air dry the sheets! I have not done that in a long time. We do have a covered porch where I could hang a long rope to dry them too. How about you? Are the days of hang drying laundry gone? Of course I'm sure not for my in the country {or on the farms!} I remember the metal poles in my back yard when I was a kid with the laundry line. I remember them well because I used to climb and hang on them like monkey bars! Anyways,wishing you all a lovely day laundry day or not!

Tempting your tummies with these fresh baked,warm ,chocolate croissants! I can't say enough about these. I've blogged about them before,but they are just perfect! My secret is Trader Joes!
