Good Monday Morning
It's such a pretty day,
it's hard to stay inside.
But, it's Monday
and it's wash day...
Sometimes, I wish I still had a clothesline.
Not all the time, mind you.
Just for the sheets and such.
Sometimes, does your hubby do something that just
drives you up the wall?
Mine said he was going to mow the lawn this morning.
He came back inside and asked me to come tell him how much
to cut back this tall palm tree in the front yard.
Just the dead fronds, I tell him.
(Is that what you call those limbs on a palm tree?)
And then I happen to look over,
and bless Pat, he has cut my Sago palms back,
just butchered them!
They were so lush and green!
What! Why, I ask?
They poked him when he mowed the grass, he says.....
I just come back inside, and continue on.
They'll grow back next year, I guess....
My little row of tomatoes and peppers and cukes
are really growing.
Can't wait to taste that first fresh tomato.
We did go to the fresh fruit market yesterday
and found lots of goodies.
I do love this time of year.
BamBam is watching a John Wayne movie.
Ms.Wilma told him he had to babysit.
I'd better go check on her,
no telling what's she's up to!
Have a great week,
Saturday, April 18, 2015
And it rained, and it rained and it rained...
It's rained for about two weeks straight!
But that hasn't stopped the Estate sales..
We found a great one a couple of weeks ago.
This vintage tablecloth with strawberries was square and my table is round but I brought it home anyway!
Every room in the house was full of vintage goodies.
Dishes, linens, books, Christmas decorations, furniture, they said everything must go!
There was enough of this fabric for me to make several dish towels.
I bought a stack of vintage hankies.
There were bags of lace, fabric, thread,
Vintage ornaments and a pair of cute German dolls.
I finally found one of these vintage metal
Christmas tree stands!
I hope the sun is shining where you are,
or at least you find a dream Estate Sale
in the rain!
That Wilma says just put on your rain hat
and go play in the rain.
and baby Dino
