One Saturday Project

Today I got an interesting phone call from my neice. She called and said she wanted to paint her suitcase, oh I mean bookcase. She said she wanted sparkly blue and then changed it to hot pink. She asked me to go to the store and get some paint so we could paint it. Well of course Aunt Kim can. I went to home depot and bought supplies (should have bought more sponge brushes). Anyway, I was greeted at my car by 2 excited children. I quickly changed into my paint clothes and drifted back 13 years when my kids were this age and so easily amused by such a project. We moved the bookcase to the patio and they went straight to work. I was not given much of a chance at first. They painted and painted and I tried to teach them how to do it. When it started to drip, Luke said "It's melting", such a fun way to describe it and it did look like it was melting. I said it is dripping and he said, no it is melting. They painted almost the whole thing and then decided I could finally have a turn. So I proceeded to touch up a few spots and then cleaned up. It was fun.

garden shots

Mexican Bush sage
My new next door neighbors!!

This is 1 lantana that grew ginormous!!!!

A great place to sit and relax.

Beautiful Mexican bush sage.
Zinnia's splash of color!

It is pretty darn hot in Texas today. Allergies are flying. I did find some beauty in the yard to share. My gardens need to be weeded and mulched, grass needs mowing and weed eating, but I am not brave enough to tackle it yet. So for now I just photograph it.

Used car hunt

Nothing like hunting for a used car. Almost one week ago, darling daughters car bit the dust. She needs a new one and it is hard to find within her budget. I need her to have a car....she is running me ragged and we kinda got used to her independence. Lots less friction when she can drive herself and be responsible for it if she is late. I am a very early or right on time person, yet she still hollers that "I" am gonna make her late, even though I am the one in the car waiting for her....anyway finding a car=less stress for me. back to my hunt....have a great day!

Remembering 9-11

Yesterday, I remembered 9-11. The terror, horror, and sadness. Today I am wondering WHERE IS OSAMA BIN LADEN and WHY after 6 years has he not been captured! He inflicted this pain on the US and he needs to be found and pay the consequences.

What is Whack?

Wisteria blooming in Sept? This is so confusing! But Beautiful and sweet smelling! My poor neglected (blurry)potting bench,
I hope to use you soon to plant some fall flowers!
Please send the 1st cool front soon!I just love the colors of the sky. Which one should I paint my laundry room? blue, yellow, gray, white, pink, purple, gold? I cannot decide.
