A little pretty among the gloom

We have been getting some much needed rain for the past week& not seeing much sun
This magnolia managed to get some flowers but most were ruined by the cold nights we had during April.  Spring came early this year but has been much colder than normal

One thing that was not affected by the cold is the dandelions....everywhere you look is a sea of yellow
These pics are for Dawn who wanted to know what I do with the driftwood I find



  1. so that's what you! Great I do, you are so creative. It looks great like that.
    the dandelions made me smile. when we were kids my big sis used to chase me with them, make me touch them and say, ohhhhh now you will wee the bed, I'm telling. Or some such nonsense and of course I was scared to got o sleep. Silly thing is, I never wet the bed, ever.

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!"
