Love having a three day weekend ahead.
What are your plans?
I want to clean out my garden beds. If it is not too hot. We have been in the 80's and 90's, and very muggy.
Time to cut down some spent plants, it is looking pretty shabby.
Watching the Florida A & M football game on Sunday with my sister and bil. Their grandson ( my great nephew) is on the team and attends college there. His name is James Broaddus.
Enjoy your weekend, be safe.....HUGS.

Great job Vicky!

Why wait...I will leave them out now 0:)

If you want to laugh your...

Larry the Cable Guy only in America

He is on Wednesday nights after Pawn Stars.
This guy is so darn funny.
I would love to see him  on stage if he ever comes to Michigan  but let me tell you he is hysterical!
Have you ever watched his show???
The things they come up with :0)
Hope you get to watch it.
You will get a good laugh.

Happy Hump Day

Saturday, August 17, 2013

Today has been a beautiful Summer day!!
I was out and about running errands and made a stop at Treasure Mart in downtown ( Kerrytown) Ann Arbor. a must stop if you ever visit.
An old house with three levels full of resale/consignment.
I found one little treasure today for 15.00 and snapped it up. I think it is pretty old, not sure, but liked it and will add to my collection of pantry boxes.
Do you think it is old or a great reproduction?

Has this ever happened to you?

I was driving home tonight after work ( 32 miles) listening to the radio, 80's station on Sirius, and do not remember the drive. Traffic light, stop sign, nothing!
Let me tell you the music that was playing was awsome. Every tune that played brought back memories of those times. Good, bad, happy and sad.
I can remember exactly what I was doing then at each  one.
I pull up the driveway and ask myself how the heck did I get home?
Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!

Meet our new kitty...Junior

Well.....this is Junior.
He actually showed up at our house about 3 weeks ago.
Good thing we love cats because we are keeping him.
He is about 6 months old...and he has an appointment at the vet on Tuesday morning to be neutered.
He loves sleeping on my porch.
Look at his little tongue sticking out in the first was hot that day.
Anyway, he is not coming in the house because Norm wants him for the shop cat a mouser.

Tomorrow is Hump Day already.
Make it a good one.

Some of my pillow collection

I have a huge collection of pillows and they are scattered around the house. These are just a few, I have many packed away for the seasons.

 This is a hooked pillow I purchased a couple of weeks ago. The muted colors look good on my sofa.  Looks faded in this pic though but has great mustard hues.

 This is OLM misfit  ordered from her a few weeks back.

 This pillow is filled with sawdust.
 Aw kitty


At the end of this month I will be setting out all my Fall .
Have a wonderful weekend friends.
