Look What's Blooming!

Here is another mosaic of what's blooming this week in my garden....mostly iris and some clematis. The peonies are just starting but I probably have enough varieties to do a mosaic of their own.

I had a lovely Memorial Day vacation. My nephew's son turned one and had a big birthday party, that was fun....lots of kids everywhere. My sister and her daughter and my daughter were all here on Sunday, I love catching up with them.

So far, it has been cold and I have put the gardening on hold. I think we are to get rain the rest of the week. I really need to get to a couple more greenhouses and get some flowers in the ground. Maybe later this week.

wii fit-

I've got a huge pile of mulch in the driveway to be spread, about 3 major projects crying to be worked on, a crazy quilt block to be pieced for an upcoming challenge and I am having trouble focusing on any of it because I bought wii fit this week!

I've been having a lot of fun with it and getting some exercise. Unfortunately, as an overweight-out-of-shape woman who is used to sitting at a desk all day, I may have overdone it a hip is hurting making it difficult for me to do any gardening or other projects....

So, for today, I'm going to get reacquainted with my kitchen so there is some food on hand for the Memorial Day weekend. I have Monday off and I'm excited about that! I'm hoping to be somewhat productive that day, if I don't decide to play tennis, go bowling or learn yoga poses.

Big ole spider web!

Today in my exit to leave for work, I happened to notice this big ole spider web by the garage doors. I have a busy weekend planned that includes making improvements to the outside of our place. You know what I'm talking about....getting out the garden statuary, cleaning up a few more gardens, pulling weeds, making the porch look more inviting, etc. I'm making a mental note to get rid of that big ole spider web as well!

Dining Room Project

I have the dining room project just about finished. I still have some things on the hutch that I don’t have room to store anywhere, but stay tuned, that will soon change too!

My project is one of those face lifts that really didn’t cost much at all but made a big difference in the look of the room. All I did was paint the walls and the chandelier and added shades to the chandelier, making a big difference with very little money.

One more project for that room is to paint Molly’s high chair that has been stored in the attic. The finish has baked off, I want to bring it down and paint it white and put it in one of the corners. My nephew’s son Tucker will be happy for it the next time he’s here for a meal.
