Broken record

I know, I sound like a broken record. I'm way far behind on blog reading and posting. I really didn't intend to have so much time between posts this time but life does have a way of not going according to planned. Anyway - here is a picture of my early Mother's Day gift. Hubby bought me two wicker rockers for the front porch.

I've been looking for some since last summer when we moved the wooden rockers to the back porch (they didn't weather well on the uncovered front porch). Anywho - I hadn't been able to find any but then there was an ad in the Sunday paper with these in it so he said we could go get them if I wanted them for Mother's Day. I should have bought cushions (to match) for the chairs on the other side of the porch but I really didn't think about it at the time. I might go back and get them, but it is an hour drive so I'll have to think about it - both time wise and with the price of gas these days!
Mr. Wonderful has taken a few days off so he is home all weekend - I'm hoping we can work on one of the flower beds in front of the porch. (just because he is home doesn't mean he isn't working - the cell phone, pager and computer are never far away!) We have to haul rocks from the back to the front to edge it with. It's not going to be a big bed but the rocks are big - ur, heavy!
In case I don't get back to post before Sunday - have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day to the moms who are reading this.

How pretty is that. Can I come and sit in one of those chairs, I may not be able to get up though. Love the color yellow, so inviting.
Hugs, RoseMarie

Tina - Your porch is so inviting - I love it. Did you have to drive all the way to Houston for the chairs? Isn't the price of gas here in Texas crazy - guess it is that way all over. Have a great Mothers Day - Anne

Now all you need is a tall glass of iced tea with your brand new rockers for a truly blissful Mother's Day :)

Does that front porch ever look inviting. Nice cool drink and stiching is all we would need for a wonderful time.

Happy Mother's Day!!

Hey, Tina - great looking rockers. I need some of those on my porch. I just love your house. Looks like you've got the windows open, too. That really takes me back......
