this is my 3rd attempt posting this. my computer keeps shutting down...
we had a nice day but cloudy. rain is expected tomorrow & throughout next week! it's been a pleasure to see all the plants growing on the trail. today I noticed wild rose plants starting to grow. nettle is also growing. dandelions now are fluffy seed heads!! the wild geraniums are so pretty & abundant with all the rain (purplish bloom). I saw a muskrat getting some fresh green marsh grass & swimming to it's home. there are 2 muskrat homes on the marsh!
my daughter was over after work. she enjoyed my porch swing & listening to the birds in our back yard & the ducks on the pond!! my granddaughter had fun playing on the piano. she was caught up in the tune, "oh my darling, clementine". an oldie but goodie. she actually looked up all the verses on the computer & I had to decipher the "old time" language like brine & 49er :-)
all in all a nice day!! we ended it with an old movie, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off". too fun!
have a great rest of the holiday wknd!!
Christine we are on day 2 of our holiday weekend pact!! ♥ May 24, 2015 at 5:40 UTC
thank you to Donnie & Glenda for your sweet encouragements!! ♥ ♥ I am lucky to have such nice connections!!
I usually don't freeze food I make. we tend to eat it. if I do freeze something, I will label it!! that is a good idea!! :-)
our granddaughter is here overnight!! we saw the movie Tomorrowland. interesting plot! we made brownie's from scratch & she helped me do a bit of spring cleaning for allowance from Nana!! her brother is with his Dad visiting relatives out of state & my daughter is having a night home alone (a rarity!!).
my granddaughter loves her violin & has to turn it in on Friday to her school. we hope to maybe work out a rental for the summer! she was having so much fun playing for us!!
I hope everyone is off to a great start of the holiday wknd!!
Christine, day one of our holiday wknd pact!!

my granddaughter is coming tomorrow night for an overnight. my gift of time is time with her. hopefully we are creating some good memories!!
today has been a typical day for me. I walked 4 dogs, went swimming & came home to read on my screened porch. finally it's warm enough to sit out there!! yay!! ;-) I also enjoyed all the pretty flowers I potted yesterday! spent a couple hours in the yard weeding. with all our rain, those weeds are really growing!!
it was a perfect spring day. very enjoyable. I did get my walk on the trail too. the wild geraniums are in bloom!! the blooms are pretty & so delicate! the milk weed is starting to grow. I enjoyed listening to the birds today! with the sunshine they have been vocal!! it is so nice to hear :-)
thanks Rachel for the encouragement!! ♥
thanks Christine for a second invite to pact back to back!! ♥

Christine we have made it to the end of the yellow brick road!! let's see how many points the wizard of Oz awards us!! thanks for the pact!!
thank you Rachel for your kind encouragement!! ♥
today was in the 50's but we are to warm up starting tomorrow! I met my son for supper & we dared eating outside! I had my jacket on & he was in shorts (ever the optimist!). the sun did peek out just in time for us!
my son was so kind to push the cart at Bachman's while I bought some flowers on sale for my screened porch!! we had fun!! I was grateful for 2 gift cards I got for Christmas from a couple of the owners of dogs I walk who were so generous!! I was so excited to use them for flowers!! yay :-D (good one for the challenge yesterday! flowers boost my mood :-)

today I managed my mood with:
1. music (the lifeguard while I was swimming always plays some good tunes! enjoyable)
2. a walk on the trail & walking 3 dogs for my job today (I always enjoy exercise & nature)
3. date nite with hubby (always nice as he's a pretty happy guy & fun to be with)
4. a funny movie (our date was a funny movie, hot pursuit)
5. reading (can be a distraction as I get immersed in a book!)
thanks to my encouragers Lynne & Christine!
we are on day 4 of our pact Christine!! tomorrow we'll see if the wizard will give us some points at the end of the yellow brick road!

thanks Lynne for your nice encouragement! ♥
Christine we are on day 3 of our Wizard of Oz pact journey!! keep on skipping down that yellow brick road!! we can make it!
today was in the 40's!! we were in the mid 70's on the wknd. what a drop in temps! I enjoyed my swim today at the ymca. my favorite life guard's last day is Friday. he is moving out west to go to college. he always played nice music & kept the volume at a good level. he was very nice to us swimmers. I hope he enjoys his adventure!!
we had really high winds last night & I found a huge branch that fell down. fortunately it didn't fall on the garage! I spent an hour breaking that up!
I enjoyed my walk on the trail. it seems like after all our wknd rain, everything has grown about a foot!! everything is really green & growing!! the frogs are too cold & only one brave frog was croaking away!
for the challenge, I don't really have any dreams as I am retired now. I have some stationary that has cone flowers & goldfinches on it. that is my goal for my garden areas by fall. there will be the cone flowers & black eyed susans. I always enjoy the gold finches & butterflies that like those flowers!!
have a terrific Tuesday everyone!!

challenge done! for the record I never did use a fork today, just a spoon & my fingers.... just sayin' :-D
today we had to say good-bye to our granddaughter after a fun overnite!! we ended our day with her at the public library. they are doing a slice of Asian life series at a variety of libraries in our county. we got to see Korean teens do a cultural drumming presentation!! it was very fun. each instrument had a name: wind, thunder, cloud, heavens & water I think. they represent the elements of weather. it was very energetic!! 2 of the 6 teens did some fun dancing (like break dancing) to a techno beat. the kids at the library loved that :-)
we have had thunderstorms most of the day! temps are going down to the 40's tonight!
I hope everyone has a great start to their week!!
