don't you just hate it when...

I just liked an article on the Facebook, and sure enough my liking upset one of my "friends."
They just had to post a comment that is unnecessary.
So, I deleted my liking and comment.
I am sure that is going to back fire in some form.
We will see if I have one less "friend" in the next few days.

Why is it that when I make plans I do not want to do them when the date arrives?
It happens all the time.
I have something to do tomorrow, but there are many other things I could be doing.
I know the activities will be fun, but I just do not want to.

look what I grew...

I planted things, and they grew.
My front yard has looked really good this spring and summer.
Lillies, tulips, daffodils, strawberries, yucca, lavender, and dahlias are coming up pretty here.
Who would of known?

Happy 4th!!

In celebration of America's birthday, here is the birthday cake I made for the 6th birthday of the boy.
His request - vanilla cake, chocolate frosting with rainbow sprinkles.
Next birthday request is the letter H.

another one

I have caught another cold.
My lovely daughter had one too last week, but hers did not last as long  as mine.
I thought I was getting better, but now the stupid virus has moved to my throat.
I do not have a cough, but when I do cough, it does not feel good.
It is 80 degrees out, and I want to rub Vick's on my chest.
I have no clue what we are doing tomorrow.
I made a potato salad.
We were invited to a BBQ, but I do not really feel like being social.
Honestly, if I wake up feeling better, I just want to take it easy and relax.

here we go

Okay, here we go....summer vacation is officially here.
I just love reading on the Facebook that my mom friends from school are already on schedule reading, writing, and workbook sessions with their kids.
I have not even thought of a daily schedule for the kids.
I am so thrilled that I do not have to drop off or pick up any one today.
There is a strong feeling in my gut that I will be insane by the end of summer.

Here is to keeping them busy......

so close

I am almost finished with painting the kitchen.
I wish I was an insomniac, so I could work all night.
I am not, so this project is taking forever because I cook 3 meals a day and have 2 lovely children that love to hang out in there.
I am so close.
I hope I will be done in the next week.
Fingers crossed for certain things to clear up my schedule, so I can finish.

summer drink!!

1 part coconut rum
1 part whipped cream vodka
1 part whipped cream liquor
3 parts guava, orange, passion fruit juice
fresh strawberries

Place all in a shaker with ice, shake with love, and pour over ice in a lovely glass.
So tasty.
Summer going down to my tummy!

I truly loathe the late spring cold.
I am suffering right now.
My nose is so stuffed up.
The children...the children brought these horrible germs into our home.
I thought I was done until fall.
Here is to hoping the Benadryl knocks it out, so I can feel better tomorrow.
