Great Day and a BIG Surprise

Sunday, May 22, 2011

Hubby and I left this morning to go pickup Mom from my brother's. Actually he meets us 1/2 way. We went to visit friends on the way to get her that we haven't seen for quite a while. She had baked a pineapple cream pie from a Southern Living Recipe. It was delicious. I only had a sliver. On the way to their house, we stopped at a nursery and I bout 96 begonias, a new type of lilac that blooms all summer, and 2 perennial hibiscus. While at our friend's house, we dug up about 6 berry Nandina plants to bring home. We got home at 5:00 and had dinner and I went out and planted the 96 begonias. Tomorrow I hope to get the other plants done and we are going to get a trailer load of mulch to try and finish the mulching. We have to pick up the poochie in the morning from the kennel. After planting all of the begonias, I went to sit on the front porch and admire them and there was a big beautiful pot of flowers on the porch table. There was no name on them. Larry thinks the lady next door brought them over. Last week I planted her flower pots for her front porch and she said she was going to treat me. Maybe that was it. Then I remembered the lady on the other side of my neighbor had surgery the other day and I thought someone may have dropped them off for her and put them at the wrong house.....lol...lol... I will find out tomorrow and will give them back to the other person if they are hers. lol... emoticon

    96 begonias, my goodness. Are you ever going to sleep good tonight. We have been getting rain since Friday afternoon. I'm ready for the sun and to dry out. But I guess there is more rainin the forecast tomorrow. At least that's what the DH is telling me.

"Us Today"

Saturday, May 21, 2011

Yesterday I blogged about taking Mom for a visit to my brother's and some of her friends were going to take her out to lunch. She has been here at our house since 2/25 and really misses her friends. She has had visitors here, but she was really happy for her to be going somewhere.

Today, hubby and I are are going to visit really good friends about 1 1/2 hrs away. We put the pooch in the kennel and are having a "free"' day. Our friend has just had some major surgery and we are going to visit with him and his wife. We used to visit them on a really regular basis, but haven't been able to do that for quite some time. That is because we were too far to just take a ride on a regular basis. Now we have moved and are a lot closer to them. Hopefully we will be able to visit more often.

Eat healthy, track your food, exercise, and drink your water.

Mom went visiting

Friday, May 20, 2011

Today my mom went to visit with my brother. We met half way for the trip which was about and hour and one half for each of us. After dropping Mom off, we went to visit some friends where we used to live at Lake Anna, VA . WE then met our son and his wife and went to dinner. Tomorrow Mom's niece is taking her out for lunch with some other friends. We go 1/2 way again to pick her up on Sunday. Since Mom isn't here, we are going to WV to visit with some friends tomorrow (Sat) and return on Sunday. We are having a "visiting" weekend.

Thanks

Thursday, May 19, 2011

I would like to say thank you to all that commented on my new kitchen. We absolutely love it.

Today, hubby tototilled around a tree in the front yard and I planted 8 hostas around it. I then planted some marigolds in the back yard. We worked mostly in the back yard today. AFter the marigolds, I planted 3 hills of squash and a row of green beans. I love doing a few veggies. We planted the tomato plants a little early and just had to watch for the frost warnings. We were safe. We now have some tomatoes the size of a golf ball. They have been planted for more than a month. We have so much to do in the yard that we aren't ;planning a large garden. Just a few things to have on hand.

Remember to eat healthy, drink your water, exercise and TRACK your food. It really works.

    I'm so jealous. I just got my garden tilled yesterday and still can't even consider planting anything until maybe a week more. So depressing. Enjoy your garden and the little sprouts when they pop up.

Old kitchen/New kitchen

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

We have been working really hard renovating the home we moved into in December.

Here is a picture of the old kitchen:



Here is a picture of the new kitchen: We still have to grout the tile and put the switch/outlet covers on




We even put a handle on the trash can to match the ones we put on the doors and drawers

    Wow, I love it. I sure wish I had a kitchen like that. I have a pretty big kitchen, but no counter space and not enough cabinets. I really love what you've done.
