Cuteness for the day

Can you see it. Caught my eye because of the glistening.
Toad, tree toad? Not sure but how cute is this!

It blended in with the cement!

It must be living in the birdhouse next to it.
I need to read up about these little guys.
Sitting there so still and it is 87 degrees out.
Happy Saturday

Saturday morning walkabout in my yard....the weather has been fantastic here!!!!

Our lilac bush this year is profuse with blossoms. It is the prettiest I have ever seen it bloom.

The same with the bleeding hearts, they spread like crazy this year.

The back of our house. 

 Sweet peas starting to climb.

Rusty crusty milkcan

These are sugar snap peas climbing up a trellis.
See what I did?

See the trellis here...well these are left over sunflower stalks from last year, still very thick and sturdy so I wrapped twine up it and using it for my peas. 

These are the seeds and they were awsome and huge. I got them at the Garden Mill in Chelsea and planted some more today. Out of all the seeds I planted last year  these were the only two that survived.

This has 2 tomato plants, one green pepper, one pickling cucumuber and arugala. My veggie garden for this year. And some flowers.

Time to get off the couch and get outside.

What's new here?

Well my granddaughter Rachel will be 13 tomorrow. She is coming over tonight to celebrate and we are having pizza and I am making a yummy salad.  She is growing too fast.
The reason for tonight is because tomorrow I will be busy. I am picking my friend Cindy up at 4 and we are going to dinner and then off to Joe Louis Arena to see a concert.
"Lady Gaga" I have been waiting to go for a long time and it's finally here!

Tried to cut my lawn this afternoon. What a mess. I couldn't finish because of the flooding. It would be great if you wanted to go mud bogging.

Here is a pick of my new couch in the room...sorry a little late, just too much going on lately.

 Moved this dry sink in my kitchen.
Moved this dough box in my pantry.
That's all folks.
Have a great weekend!!!

Terrible storms all around us today and look what I came home to!!! Gail if you see this it was unbelievable. I have lived here 25 years and have never seen it this bad!

Flood in front of my house

The driveway is covered

 What driveway

Water onto the road ( my car)
I had to get out and take these pictures

This is the view from my house

We had tornado warnings at work so we all had to stop treatment and go with our patients to the basement. It was 1 1/2 hours down there!!!! Awful!!!! I worked late to finish the patient we were working on and the last 2 rescheduled. Now times that at least 200 plus, meaning the rest of patient care in the building.
I'm tired!
Hope everyone is safe and okay.
