Rain Dance...

I feel the need to do a rain dance. We have had rain all around us the last few days, but it just goes right around us.

My Faithful Oakleaf Hydrangea is full of blooms. I think she is the "Queen of my garden".

I have been trying for years to grow Shasta Daisies from seed...with no luck. I finally did it! This is my first bloom. Yeah!!!
I have bought several from the nursery only to have them die ~sigh~
Mr. Fly seems to like it too.

This is the first year I have tried these Lemon Zest Petunias. I hope I can keep them blooming during the heat of the summer. I usually don't have much luck with Petunias when it gets hot.

New Sitting Area...

I have always wanted a little sitting area in my bedroom. Yesterday I pulled one of my wicker rockers off the porch and cleaned it up. My husband painted it for me and I put it in a corner in our bedroom. I really like how it turned out.
Ooops I need to hide that cord.

It snowed in East Texas...It was so pretty. I did not get to take good pictures because I had to go to work and it was still dark when I left. Including power was off. It is not fun getting ready in the dark. Ever tried to put on make-up by candle light? I figured when I got to work in the light I would look like a clown. Oh well, I work at a primary school, so that could pay off with the kids. LOL
BTW my power was only out for the early part of the day :)

Remember Bubba on Forrest Gump, the way he went on and on about shrimp....that's the way I feel about lemons! I love lemon tea, lemon cleaners, lemon cake, lemon pie, lemon drops, lemon air freshener, lemonade. I could just go on and on, but I won't! I just love lemons.

I think lemons are just about the best thing ever...

Having Withdrawals.....

Oh my! I sure wish Spring would get here...I am having Garage Sale withdrawals. LOL The weather has been so nice the last two days, I just knew there would be some in the paper this morning...only two. Sighhhh. Maybe next week, but then again it might be 20 degrees out. It was in the teens one week and the next it was warm with tornado sirens blaring. Gotta love Texas weather. You will never get bored with it and forget knowing how to dress in the mornings. Watching the weather man is a must! I'm really not complaining. Just being silly. I love Texas and wouldn't know how to live anywhere else. (although a tropical island with sandy beaches...just kiddin')

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Coffee or Tea...

If you love coffee or hot must have one of these! It's a Keurig coffee maker. It makes one cup at a time. You just pop in a K-cup and press the button and you have a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocalate in seconds. There are so many flavors to choose from too. We have one at work and I just had to have one here at home. My sweet family got me one for Christmas. Ladies drop by and lets have a cup.
