Yard work & behavior modification

We finally had some beautiful weather today so we were able to get a lot of work done in the yard. I was able to get a lot of flowers planted but didn't get back to my big project of the new flower still looks like this!

I finally found the two trees I was looking for - a Kousa or Chinese dogwood & a standard hydrangea............I can't wait to get this finished!

It's not easy getting anything done as Miss Molly "demands" her share of attention! She seems to be responding well to being disciplined but definitely still has her "sassy backtalk" moments.
Mark Dani & Li Li came over Sat which was an experience.......Li Li wasn't about to get down from anyone's lap but seems to like her. Dani has a great talent with animals so she was able to calm her down. We came back here after dinner & they played with Miss Molly while Li Li & I took a walk down the street. She loves to throw stones in the storm drain so by the time we got to the corner, she couldn't fit one more "rock" in her hand! She just kept stopping saying "one more Nana"! I will post some pictures later of the flowers.


  1. Ever since your walk, LiLi has mentioned the name "Eileen" about a 100 times a day. She has incorporated the name in her nightly bed time stories.

  2. I will have to tell Eileen - she will be thrilled

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
