These are my favorite flowers ~
They have a name.. Eci something , that I have no idea how to spell ~
We call them cone flowers.
I used to have a ton of purple ones.. but they didn't come back this year.
I think that the other flowers have over crowded them.
If you look closely you can see what else is lurking in the soil.
It is not unusual to find childhood momentos all over this house.
Frotto Baggins has found a great home in my impatients.
Silly things like this make me smile.
Some people have asked me about my wieght loss..I've lost a good inch or two from my waist line.
I am going to let yall in my pants!
and now I am going to let you in on my secret.
Remember a month or so ago when I was up on the roof painting the siding..
Well.. I am still going.
This is an old old house.. that needs a ton of work,
some of it I am trying to cut corners on the cost and do it myself.
I actually don't mind.. I like having projects.
My husband thinks that I am superwoman.
(and he's right)
As of now...
the deck is painted.
It went from this..
The siding and shutters on the back of the house are freshly painted.
The windows caulked.
The fence under the deck still needs to be finished..
The green is very calming.
I usually spend a few hours in the morning painting..
Then cool off in the pool in the afternoon.
I bought some molding and some pretty outdoor canvas material.
The garage was in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint.
