What really makes you happy? When your in your garden,is it the flowers or the little accents in the garden, maybe your little sitting area ,or its just the whole thing.
Right now the weather is blah , and i cant get out , plus im sick , another blah.
Its gonna be lousy till next week.
Im gonna write about something different.
my favorite car.
When i was 18, i got my 1st car. I was married had 1 kid and pregnant with the 2nd .
One christmas, i got my 1st car .
It was a 67 mustang fastback, bought for 350.00,and then a motor and transmition was to be bought for it.
I loved that old car, took it every where. Ive had 2 other mustangs since . I see the new ones today, the fastbacks , Their nice , but give me a old classic !
Have a great evening all!

Gonna loose the front yard shrubs.....
Category: GARDEN ROOMS | Posted: Tue May 01, 2007 7:34 pm
Well the front yard is gonna be a mess,sure is! The pipe at foundation is cracked ,oh boy!
The gigantic shrubs will have to be pulled out. The shrubs to left are the ones having to go.
But with that in mind , a new bare spot! That will mean new bushes ,or a nice japanese maple ,or who knows . This side of the house is the north side , shady ... ferns maybe.
But i know Ron is not a happy camper , i should be more reserved on this right now . For now i'll think this to myself...

Summer and with it , a bit of a cold
Category: GARDEN ROOMS | Posted: Tue May 01, 2007 2:24 pm
I've been coughing and my throats sore. Dont know if its from being out in the rain, putting mulch on azealas, or what but my throat hurts.Was trying to coat it last night witha few homemade frozen margaritas. I slept good any ways, not like the night before.
We are having a plumber, here today to run a camera down our pipes, to see if there's a broken pipe.I know Ron is worried about that and $$$ cost wondering how expensive it will be , plus the mess they will make of our front yard .If they have to dig it up out front.
Its also looking like rain , carried my cushions in the house already this morning , even before my 1st cup of coffee.
Talked to mom, she's had strep throat for a few days now,is this a sympathy thing we got going, being away from each other , hmmm.
Daughter Maggie is working till 10pm every night at the mini mart , Jeremiah is being watched by his grampa there, or Matt(My 22 year old son) helps her.
I think some chocolate is what i need , to make me feel better , no not really.
Here's the cats..

Another sunny day in Missouri
Category: GARDEN ROOMS | Posted: Mon Apr 30, 2007 2:39 pm
Its suppose to rain some this week, so have to get whatever needs done today, and tomorrow.
I got sunburned yesterday . Wore a tank top all day , should have known better.
Couldn't sleep at all last night, maybe to much on my mind , tossed and turned. Even got up once and got on here.
May run to town,go to walmart and buy some pink spray paint for the metal lawn chairs in Rons barn.Like in the magazine article , the woman had pink lawn chairs. I thought they were quite pretty pink,Ron's are some shade of brown.

New ideas of picket fence
Category: GARDEN ROOMS | Posted: Sat Apr 28, 2007 4:28 am
Yesterday we bought two sections of picket fence off a lady we met at a barn sale. Today we played around with some ideas to do with more picket fence.So i took some pics of what it could look like,by propping it up.The arbor of course would be painted white to match. We would have to buy new picket fence though . I priced some at lowes,they have it for like $22.00 for 8 foot long sections.
Here is my pics of what it might look like with fence propped.
Now we would go from the start of the boxwoods , to down where the yellow peace rose is at the end of the driveway.
Here are some other pics.
The azeala's planted,but before we mulched them.
My hydrangea tree.Thought i lost it to the frost,but its coming out again.
Our new rain gauge.
