Good morning on this damp day. I’m not complaining because otherwise I would be out there with the hose wetting every thing down.

This and the following are blooms off the butterfly bush.

It grows in the left hand corner o0f in the front yard.

I have seen a Monarch butterfly in among the branches so it is doing it’s job.  I water it every morning unless, like this morning, Mother Nature is doing it for me.  I also water the hanging plants out front and those around the back porch.

This morning I have my zoo fed, the curtains open, and my coffee on the desk.  My Brandy is here.

Not quite ready to get up but not wanting to miss anything either.

A little later we will get out and walk our 2 or 4 blocks for exercise if the rain doesn’t increase.

In the to read section I have the following.

A little dark.

Still working on King’s Sleeping Beauties, also Dean Koontz’s The Whispering Room ( this one goes with me when I’m out in the car while Cindy does errands because it fits in my purse),  I also just bought Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls.  It is part of her true life series.  After reading the item in the AARP issue I decided to buy  The President Is Missing by Bill Clinton and James Patterson.  So I have a lIttle reading to catch up on. At least I have broadened my selection of authors in my old age.

I have changed the front window decor.

I put Cindy’s Fairy stump in the front living room window.

I also added these.

In the left side panel of the window .


In the right s8ide panel is this.

Just a little fantasy to add to our decor.

Yesterday my friend Darlene came up ro spend the day with me.

We decided to walk the Meijer’s store

Well as per usual I can’t visit a store without finding some thing to spend money on.

To replace the broken and chipped dishes I have destroyed over the past two years I found these.

I plan to buy one more set shortly so we will have enough to feed 8 people on.  I also need to find some serving bowls.

Darlene took me to lunch afterward and I ate too much.  This I paid for last night –getting up a couple of times to try to settle my stomach.  I deserved it because I know better– I’ll learn some day–but it tasted so good.

Grocery shopping the other day I found these.

Just the thing to bring smiles into the kitchen. Well that is this for now.  But I’ll be back.
