Happy Labor Day

I hope everyone is having a safe and fun 3 day weekend. And I hope you are doing exactly what you want to.

Some folks are getting in the last hurrah before summer is over. Picnicking, camping, boating, swimming are all favorite ways of celebrating this weekend. 

But as for me and my house we are spending it at home quietly. We are enjoying the solitude and peacefulness of just the 2 of us being together and doing nothing. Now hubs washed the van yesterday and is washing his vehicle today. And I am doing some creative things in the studio. But that is it for us. We have enjoyed good food and times just sitting and talking together.

We like not being out on the roads with some of those crazy folks!

So what are you doing this weekend?

Oh, I almost forgot, this is the view from my hammock!


Be safe out there!

Beautiful Things

It has been busy around here and busy means some things just don't get done. And lately it seems that I am not posting much.

Maybe that will change as the weather does, or doesn't. It has been so hot and humid this summer. The air is thick and breathing is hard to do in the midday sun. As you look around outside there is beauty everywhere though.


The trees are green and sky is so blue. I love seeing the beauty that God has created. 


This banana leaf is way above my head. And look at all the shades of green that are showing with the sunshine and shadows.


Black-eyed Susan and Four O'clock, now that I look at this picture I believe I took it at the wrong time of the day! Oops! Must have been before 4pm! But it's still pretty.

So no matter how hot or humid it gets there is still beauty all around us. We just have to decide to see it sometimes. So I have been trying to take time to see the beauty. Even if sometimes I have to do it from inside by looking out the window.

Sometimes it is just to hot to go outside. At least that is the way I felt on this day. 


And I am in West Virginia, I can only imagine how you all are feeling who are further south.

 Everyone take care and enjoy the beauty that is around you, even if you have to do it by looking out the window!

Water For My Plants

Most of the water for my plants around the yard has been coming from the watering can. But last evening we had about 2 hours of a slow steady soaker. I was hoping it would continue throughout the night but I will take what I can get.

From the looks of some of the plants, I would say they are happy as well.

I hope you enjoyed a small bit of my flowers today.

A Little Fun

It was fun for me at least! 

And it added to my Etsy shop. 

I thought I would share with you what I been doing since it has been so hot that you had to stay indoors or fry!





There is one more but I can't seem to get it to take so here is the link. Get ready for some sparkle!

So what have you all been doing on these stifling hot and humid days?
