Where have I been?

I wish I could say somewhere exciting but no!

The most exciting in my life right now is checking to see if the grass is growing!
This is what my yard looks like right now.  We ended up raking up the whole yard as the perfectionist in me didn't like what they had done.....I know but I'm anal like that!  We had 3 yards of top soil delivered which we took wheelbarrow by wheelbarrow to the back & spread, raked & re-seeded it. 
Notice all the leaves?  Well apparently all the digging sent my trees into temporary shock & they were dropping leaves like snowfall!  It lasted about 4-5 days & thankfully has now stopped.

Of course the seed they put down is growing beautifully in my garden & in the mulched area along side the garage. 

I keep repeating to myself "Patience.  It takes time for grass to grow.  Rome wasn't built in a day." 

It's not helping!

I want my yard back!

Sniff.  Sniff!



  1. You know how Popster takes a trip to Florida each year for a few days? Now would be a good time for you to do it. Run away for a few days.

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!"
