Scenic Pictures

Took a trip to the Brownville Flea Market. I didn’t buy anything, just had fun looking. I took some scenic pictures I thought were pretty. You can click on images to make bigger.

This picture just looks so calm and peaceful.

Here are pictures of the Missouri River. Needless to say it is pretty high. They are predicting bad flooding this summer. I sure hope this doesn’t come to pass.

Flowers, Dirt and Worms

It has been such a busy time lately, seems like there is something on every night. Tonight we have to go to a sports banquet.

Tomorrow is my last day at work and then I am off for the summer. Maybe I will be able to blog more often.

I got a few more flowers planted. I thought these were so pretty. They are perennials. I can’t remember the name though.

Then I got these little flowers planted. After I planted them in the little cups I realized there is a worm in each one. YUCK!

pcpics 3070

No, seriously I made these individual little dirt cups (oreos and pudding) to take to work tomorrow. When I went to the store to get some gummy worms, all they had were the sour gummy worms, but they’re colorful!

I was just in the mood to make something and since it’s our last day I thought I would take some to share. Of course Doug was complaining he wasn’t going to get any but I assured him that I made enough for him to have one!

Check it out!

Help Roberta over at Cottonwood Lane Primitives reach her goal of  100 followers! I always  enjoy checking out her blog and just look at the wonderful penny rug she is going to be giving away once she reaches her goal, and drum roll please……….it is a Maggie Bonanomi pattern!  I really had to struggle with myself to tell you about it because I figured the less people that know about it, the more of chance I would have to win!! Shame on me!!  So hop on over and check it out!

Found A New Trick!

Many of you probably already know how to do this. I have been playing around in Picasa 3 and I made my header all by myself! It was so much fun to do. Here are a couple of other collages I made. This could be addicting!

I used some of the same pictures in the graduation collage but just wanted to show you another layout.

Not Again?!

angry_puppy_answer_1_xlarge

Well yesterday I had been checking out the neat blogs I love out there and would have liked to have been able to leave a comment but……it said blogger was unavailable when I tried to do so. I sure hope they get straightened out sooner or later before blog land disappears altogether!  Seems like they have had more trouble lately than the whole time I’ve been on blogger.

Blogger finally fixed

Well I can finally quit my bellyaching! Blogger has finally fixed their problem and I can once again see my list of the blogs I follow!  It’s one of those things that you don’t realize how nice it is until you don’t have it.

We continue to be busy getting ready for graduation. I will be so glad when Saturday is over with and I can quit worrying about it! They had awards day at school Monday and we are so very thankful that Doug received quite a few scholarships, bless his heart! I have to say that he certainly worked his tail off applying for them.

I wish my flowers were in bloom for Saturday but it’s too early. Here’s what my arbor looked like last summer but of course my vines aren’t there now.

and my day lilies aren’t  in bloom yet. :-(

I don’t have a magic wand so I guess I will just have to wait on them.  I do have some flowers that I just planted and I have a few hanging baskets so it won’t be competely bare!

Now I need to get back to our “to do” list!

Coming Unglued!!

Mummy_falling_apart First of all, thank you everyone for commenting on my previous post. It has been 3 days now and my dashboard still says I am not following any blogs. I have restarted my computer, posted the problem in google, who knows if I did that right because I could never see where it says to actually contact any certain person. I have tried logging in on explorer and firefox, nothing is working. I am coming unglued! So much so that I don’t think there will be any pieces of me left to try and glue back together if this doesn’t get fixed soon!!  Any more suggestions?

Mindy

Question

For 2 days now when I sign in to blogger, I can not pull up my reading list that show the updates of the blogs I follow.  It tells me that I am not following any blogs. Is anyone else having this problem?

Mother’s Day

pcpics 650

Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and mother’s everywhere!

I saw the following posted on Facebook and as a mother I thought I couldn’t have said it better myself.

My promise to my children~~I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare & hunt you down like a bloodhound when needed.....because I LOVE YOU! When you understand that, I will know you are a responsible adult. You will NEVER find someone who loves you, prays for you, cares about you, & worries about you more than I do!!!

A Busy Time

pcpics 1054

One week until graduation. So much to do. So many things are going on right now. So many things I have in my head that I need to do. It certainly is a stressful time. It’s just one of those times where it seems like everything is happening all at once. I haven’t had time to do any projects lately. I did get some flowers that I need to get planted. I think I will spend the better part of the day tomorrow working outside. I bought these wave petunias. I've never seen this kind before. I love the purple.

My balloon flowers are starting to come up!

I bought a new vine this year called candy corn. I thought I would give it a try.

Today was Doug’s last day of school. He goes on his senior trip Tuesday. They are going to the Lake of the Ozarks. Then graduation will be on the 14th.  I will then have no more kids in high school. One of these days it’s going to kick in and I will fall apart, I just know it. Once again another chapter ending.

Bungee Run…

We had an obstacle course set up with the tricylces but a lot of the kids just had fun riding the tricycles around!

Here’s Doug and Megan on a tricycle.

We had a scavenger hunt and they had to do it in pairs but also they had to hold hands while finding their items. It was so funny watching Doug and Colin running around holding hands.

Then they played some Minute to Win it games. This one they had to see how many water bottles they could knock down with the panty hose over their head with an orange in it.

I think everyone had a good time. There was a lot of awesome prizes for the seniors like microwaves, TV’s, dorm refrigerators, etc. Doug won a Garmin (GPS) and a Walmart gift card. It was fun but glad it’s over. I think the staying up all night has just now hit me! :-)
