Neighborhood Flowers

Don't you just love this time of year? When we do our sale-ing, I love looking at the beautiful flowers in the yards.

A few days ago, on the way home from Johnson's Garden Centers, we passed a house that had the most gorgeous flowers (please forgive me, I didn't have my camera) So I told The Husband to please stop so I could go ask them what kind of flowers they are. The man of the house told me they are poppies. Well, I've raised poppies and have NEVER seen any like these! So, I googled poppies so I could find a picture to show you their beauty - NO pictures like his... So, tomorrow, I'm going back to take pictures! But, the best part of this story is that in a month - he says I can have some of the seeds. I. can't. wait. !!!

The other evening, I walked around our cul-de-sac and took some pictures of our neighborhood flowers. Of the 5 houses, only 3 of us have flowers. The other 2 have beautiful trees and shrubs.

It was a relaxing beautiful walk!

Driving on 235 on Memorial Weekend

The Husband and I took flowers to a cemetery in Haysville on the Saturday morning of Memorial Day weekend.

On our way home, on 235 the traffic was typical for a holiday weekend. - Then we hit something on the high way. We couldn't go right, we couldn't go left. It was in our lane and once we drove over it we had to pull over because it was caught tight.

We couldn't get it out and we couldn't tell what it was. So we called AAA. Right before our AAA representative got there a State Trooper stopped. 

It was a cover for a boat motor.

I'm posting this blog because I just want to say:

This State Trooper 


This AAA representative

were two of the nicest men EVER...

Entertainment During the Garage Sale

Depending on who you are, having a garage sale can be either "fun" or "excruciating."  I think they take way too much work, but enjoy the benefits from the sale.  

$$$ and visiting grands. 

This year was particularly entertaining. I have some pictures of our daily entertainment.

Good Times.

Farmer's Market

One of the m.a.n.y. things we did on Saturday was to go to the local Farmer's Market. I LOVE getting fresh vegetables and walking through the market with The Husband. We always have a great time.

Our harvest for the day was enjoyed once it was lunch time!

Now that it's Sunday evening - I wish we would have gotten more tomatoes!!

I'm Not Tired, Really, I'm Not

Garage Sale Week

I'm not tired.

 Really, I'm not.

 I don't have to take naps anymore
and besides, I'm not tired.

 I take naps, but I'm not tired today.

 Can I just set here and rest. I'm really not tired.

Can I stay up late tonight, I'm not tired.
