Happy Friday!

Hope you are all having a happy Friday. It's just down right HOT here in Texas! I've done my errands for the day and before I get into stuff I need to do today, I thought I would jump online and show you a few pics. These are from a couple of weeks ago.

 I've had this metal flower forever - it moved here with us so more than six years because it was already faded when we moved. It has been hanging out in the garage all this time. I didn't mind the rusty part too much but it was so faded you really couldn't see it from a distance.

A couple of weeks ago I bought these flowers - we will get back to them later, in another post, but they inspired me to paint my faded, rusty flower so I could use it.

The result. You can see that baby now! I used regular craft paint and then sprayed it with clear coat so maybe the paint will be okay. I just parked it here to take the pic while some other stuff was going on in the back yard. More on that later too.

Hope you have a happy weekend!

Little birdies

Good afternoon! It's sunny and hot here in Texas.

I've had this pot of mums for years - the only time I've had any to last but these keep blooming all year round. Last week hubby was out watering them and a bird flew out - 

that's when we found this. I couldn't get a picture of the eggs, but we would go out and check on them every day. Once they start chirping, Autumn would have been all over them so I moved a flowerpot thingie in front of the chair where the mums are. That with the fact that she is slowly loosing her hearing (she's 15) I don't think she ever knew they were there.

The other day I was greeted with open mouths - guess they mistook me for their mama. I took a couple of pictures and left so the mama could come back

Day before yesterday they were quite adamant about wanting food!
I didn't get to go out and check on them yesterday and when I went out this morning they were gone. I guess they left the nest yesterday but at least Autumn didn't get any of them this time!

Hope you are having a great week!

Looking back

Since I don't really have anything exciting to share today, I thought I would go back and see what I was doing 5 years ago. I may do this now and then - good excuse to go back my blog and see what was going on. The above photo was taken last summer, I just put it there because I think every post needs a pretty picture. (not that I count my photos as 'pretty photos' but the subject is pretty. :)

We worked in the yard over the weekend but the few photos haven't been downloaded yet.

If you are interested here is the link since I don't know how to re-post the whole post here. I was happy to see that it was a good mail day so there are some nice pictures there!

Missed it

Happy June!

I had planned on getting this posted yesterday but the day got away from me. I took the picture on May 29, so I did have it finished in time, just didn't gt it posted. Now the debate - start July or skip ahead to August?

The rain has finally stopped and we are finally drying out. Our neighborhood didn't have any flooding issues but the ground is still on the mushy side.

Hope you are all having a great week!
