Would you like to go for a swim?  We just got the pool all ready and getting hot enough for a nice swim anytime now.  I am not much for the heat or swimming but it does always look so inviting.  When I was a kid oh how I wanted a swimming pool.  My Dad would say, go dig you a whole, fill it with water and go for it.  Lol.  How funny.  Sure did not have this back in the time I was growing up.  Enjoy your afternoon.


Finally got this done.  Pinapple Doily and looks like grapes.  The Art of crocheting is so amazing.  I am so thankful I took the time to learn this.  I am working on a Afghan now for a friend.  Going to put it together with a fuzzy yarn.  Should be interesting.  Have a great day my friends.

Southern Style Sun Tea

4 - 6 - regular sized tea bags
10 - cups water (2 1/2 quarts)
1 - cup granulated sugar or your preference
Ice cubes
lemon slices, orange slices & fresh mint, optional

Place tea bags into a clean 3 quart clear glass jar. Make sure to leave the paper tags on the outside of the jar. Add the water and screw on the lid. Let the jar of tea stand in direct sunlight for 3-4 hours or until the tea reaches the desired strength. Remove the tea bags and discard. Add sugar to suit your taste, then serve over ice. Refrigerate any leftover tea. Use within 2 days. The longer you let the tea sit outside the darker it will steep. Your preference will tell you exactly when to bring it in. Keep in mind sun tea is not as strong but more mellow than regular iced tea.
I saw this on a looking around journey and thoight I would share with you.  I use to do this all the time, think I will get back to this idea.

Have you ever wondered where all the Aprons your Mother use to wear went to?  I do and think about how I wish I would have kept just one of them.  As I put on my Apron to cook today all the wonderful memories began to flow through my mind.  Here I am cooking in a air conditioned kitchen when my poor Mother would have sweat running down her from the kitchen being so hot but she never failed to have a great dinner on the table for us.  It did not matter how hot as she was determained to have that delacious food on the table.  Those was the good ole days.  Sit back, relax and think about when your Mother most likely did the same thing for you.

Do you remember these, going to the drive inn and listening to your movie with this hanging in your window.  I use to think now if it only put out heat in the winter and air in the summer this thing would be great.  But, we put up with the bugs, heat an cold as this was the THING back in the good ole days.  Today, I don't think they have drive inns anymore.  Don't want to say they are gone and a thing of the past as there just might be one somewhere.  Oh the Memories.
I wish you a great day, sit back and think of all the wonderful memories that once was a part of your life.

An old man and woman were married for many years, even though they hated each other. Whenever there was a confrontation, yelling could be heard deep into the night, and old man would shout, "When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!"

Neighbors feared him. They believed he practiced magic because of the many strange occurrences that took place in their neighborhood.

The old man liked the fact that he was feared. To everyone's relief, he died of a heart attack when he was 98, and the neighbors were happy, but a little afraid all the same.

His wife had a closed casket funeral and after the burial, she went straight to the local bar and began to party as if there was no tomorrow.

Her neighbors, concerned for her safety, asked "Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?"

The wife put down her drink and said,
"Let him dig. I had him buried upside down, and I know he won't ask for directions."


What a beautiful day it is in sunny Florida.  Nice and cool so a great day to be outside.  I am thinking maybe I will even go get some Roses and make myself a Rose bed.  Love those roses. 
I wish each of you a beautiful, Bless day.

FACES --> -->
We sit and we type, and we stare at our
We all have to wonder, what this possibly
With our mouse we roam, through the rooms
in a maze
Looking for something or someone, as we
sit in a daze.
We chat with each other, we type all our
Small groups we do form, and gang up on
our foes.
We wait for somebody, to type out our
We want recognition, but it is always the
We give kisses and hugs, and sometimes
In IMs we chat deeply, and reveal why we
We do form friendships - but - why we
don't know
But some of these friendships, will
flourish and grow.
Why is it on screen, we can be so bold
Telling our secrets, that have never been
Why is it we share, the thoughts in our
With those we can't see, as though we
were blind.
The answer is simple, it is as clear as a
We all have our problems, and need
someone to tell.
We can't tell real people, but tell
someone we must
So we turn to the 'puter, and to those we
can trust.
Even though it is crazy, the truth still
They are Friends Without Faces, and odd
little names.
I just had to share this poem with
everyone it is so cute. Almost makes you wanna cry =) !! anyways have a
wonderful day my friends!

Well I guess you can see that sign. I needed it today as I was in the slow lane, following another car, and a man I suppose thought I was going to slow decided he wanted to be rude to me. Oh well, I tell myself, just another day in this world of rude people. Always wear a smile and you will come out in top. Now, let me tell ya, down the road after he has passed me I see his car on the side of the road. He He He. Broke down, My My I say. Of course with a big ole smile on my face.
A pretty day here in sunny Florida. Birds are all out singing and eating all my bird seed up. Guess tomorrow will be a bird seed run. Wal-Mart here I come.
You have a great night my friends.

Monday, again, my how these Mondays roll around often. Come and sit awhile and lets chat about our day. Rather warm today, windy but still hot. This is Florida for sure. I bet it will be a long hot summer this year with the winter being mild for us.
Today I am so sad as my great grandson Landyn is not doing well at all. He just had open heart surgery 2 weeks ago and now the Doctors said they did not do something they should have so again, this little guy has to go through this again. They are saying about 4 more weeks and will have to reopen him. He is a little fighter but I know he is getting really tired of all this going on to him. I just want him well, happy and pain free. Just look at this lil handsome guy. I light a candle for God to Bless him and make him well soon.
You have a wonderful God Bless day.

Hello to ya from sunny Florida. Today some people take as a serious day but me, just another work day. Planted a rose bush this morning so now I have 3 of them. I bought the Knock-Out one as they bloom for a long time and stay easier to take care of. Think I am going to have to turn the Ac on as beginning to get hot in my lil house. I hope you have a lovely day and be happy.

Oh yes, the stress of life. Do this or do that, every day stress. Doing some laundry today and working on a piece for a tablecloth that I am crocheting. I remember my mother sitting with my Aunt while they both crocheted a tablecloth. Alot of great memories from this time in my life. Yes, I am sure there was stress but I bet nothing like in todays world.
A beautiful cool day here in sunny Florida. Windows and door open and the fresh air flowing through. Nothing could be better. You have a Bless stress free day.

Today I baked a Ham for Easter Dinner. I can remember on Easter Sunday as a little lady being all dressed up in my Sunday best and going to Church, after church we would hide Easter eggs and enjoy visiting with friends and family. What happened to this time in life, today so many people says they just do not have the time anymore. So sad as back then what wonderful times we had.
Do you ever think if only I could go back to that time in life? I sure do as it was a peacefull, stressfree world we lived in, we did not lock our home door or cars like we have to now. What happened? Well, enough of this, have a great afternoon.
Blessings to you and all


Morning, Wishing you a peacefull Easter Day. The sun is out, birds singing and looks as if it will be a beautiful day here in sunny Florida. Today I will spend time with family and friends but on the computer . Lol, Kids all grown up and gone, so sad for this mommie as I miss my children more than they will ever know. So hard to have them all over the place. But, life goes on and we live it to the best we can. God Bless you.

Oh the memories. Such a wonderful school to learn the things in life we need. If the children could have a school like this they would know the joys of friends, family and teachers. I went to this school for 8 years, then on the high school and graduated in 1962. Oops, did I just tell my age. I heard from a school friend the other day through facebook. I was very pleased to once again chat with someone I went to Harold school with. I hope you have a wonderful day. God Bless from Milton, Florida.

Do we take the time in our busy life to think of this and do as it says? I thank God for waking up today, for my family, friends and everything in life he has given to me. Waiting to hear news on my great grandson as to whether they will do the open heart surgery now or wait the 2 weeks as they had planned. Either way, God, he is in your hands. You have a wonderful thankfull day.

Just look at this lil guy, isn't he adorable. He is his nanny lil man for sure. This precious baby will be going through open heart surgery in about 2 weeks. I ask all my friend and family to keep him in their prayers and thoughts as he goes through this ordeal. God is good so he will take good care of him I am sure. Thank you all for my request and you have a Bless day.
