TACKLE it TUESDAY 4-29-08

Tackle It Tuesday Meme I am tired again today but did not want to put off posting for this meme.

My desk is still not finished, but every paper I file or throw away is getting it done and the clean side is staying that way. As the pics show, I am getting there—maybe by the 4th of July.

NO FLOWERS TODAY

Monday, April 28th, 2008

I have taken more pictures of the flowers yesterday and today but I am just too tired to go thru the process of loading them in a post.

I worked in the pharmacy from 9 til 5:30 with a 30 minute lunch and other than that break, it was almost non-stop.  I am beat.  Even the store manager made a comment about me looking tired.  That is my schedule for the balance of the week with the exception of Friday morning, I go back to the orthopedic for a re-check.

It rained this morning and tonight before DH ate he broadcast 8-8-8 fertilizer in all the flower beds, around the blueberry bushes and trees. At the time he did not know it was going to rain again but it started sprinkling before he finished and then a good shower of rain came.

BLOG your BLESSING

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

I have several (more than I can count or even think of) as I always do and sometimes it is just so hard to pick one.

Today I shall tell you a little about DGS#3. He is 9 years old and is developing a sense of humor, trying to make or tell jokes, etc. This is one: “Grandi, if you asked my professional opinion about something, I would tell you that I am not a professional.”

He spent Friday late afternoon and early evening with me. He quietly watched DVDs of his choice and played with Bullett. While I was preparing supper, he asked me twice if he could help me.

When he is alone with me, he almost always answers yes and no questions with ‘mam’. An expression that I require of them. He also ask for anything he may want and says thank you. If I should ask him if he wants anything he replies ‘yes, please’ or ‘no thank you’.

I do not have a pic on my camera that is up to date or I would post it. I must change that and soon. I will copy one from his mom’s site. This pic was made in February.

SELF PORTRAIT SUNDAY 4-27-08

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

As I have stated before I am not photogenic, but I do enjoy this meme. Won’t you join us?? Just take your picture and post a link to your site in the comment section here.

Not Good, but this is the best of 8 taken. I moved the camera just a tad, plus the subject is nothing to brag about.

SHOPAHOLIC & TIRED

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

DD is a shopaholic!!! I picked her and DGD#2 up today at 10:10. We got back to her house at 4:45. I am so tired. We went to K-Mart, Cato, Sams, Wal-Mart, back to K-mart, and then to the bread store. I only needed to go to Sams, Wal-Mart and the bread store. She wanted to go to those places, also. I did make an unscheduled stop at Bed Bath and Beyond that was all about me.

At Cato the three of us got a dress identical and also got one for DGD#3. We plan to wear them Mother’s day. I will be going to church with her instead of to my church.

My very thoughtful DH cooked supper after I got home. He is such a treasure that can’t be replaced.

I have worked a little on clearing my desk. I think now I will go sit in living room and crochet.

I think I am more tired than she is a shopaholic. :)

MORE AMARYLLIS and IRIS

Friday, April 25th, 2008

A few more pictures of flowers that I go in the yard just to see. Hope you enjoy looking at nature in my yard. Hopefully next year we will have more and bigger blooms.

dscf0674.JPG dscf0673.JPG dscf0706.JPG dscf0688.JPG dscf0686.JPG dscf0707.JPG The flower bed and red Amaryllis are from the back yard. The previous red and white are also from the back yard. Today’s pic of the red and white are from the front yard.

Only Iris in the back yard are blooming now. The ones in the front yard need a lot of attention.

The pics below were taken today, note the difference.
dscf0705.JPGThis is from the plant shown above with three open blooms. dscf0704.JPG This is from the same plant of the yellow single that begins the pics of the Iris. This plant has more petals per flower and the petals have more ruffles.

Hope you have not been bored.

CRAFT CLUB 4-25-08

Friday, April 25th, 2008

As you can see my project does not look much different than it did 2 weeks ago. Things happen that interfere with my crafting time. Mostly the interference is too much time spent on the computer.

dscf0628.JPG dscf0702.JPG

The difference in color is the lighting. I really have not changed yarn.

What have you done that is crafty–with needles, glue, sponges, scissors, hammer and nails or whatever needed to do your craft? Share it with us over at cassknits.

YELLOW IRIS

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

Irises are among my favorite flowers. Last evening, about 8, I took a picture of the bud of one at our back deck. This morning I took a picture of the full bloom. Nature, really God, is so amazing to me. Same flower, about 13-14 hours later.

dscf0693.JPG dscf0696.JPG

I do not know why the first pic has a blue tinge of color to the leaves and background. Maybe because it was almost dark.

More pics to follow tonight or in the morning. Different colored Irises and more Amaryllis.

TEEN YEARS

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

Teens today face many challenges, criticisms, and sometimes serious problems with physical appearance. Not the “drama” things which may include bad hair day, this shirt or blouse is not my best color, or even the food at lunch is not what I want. I am speaking of acne. Acne affects so many teens. It sometimes can influence how immature teens will treat the person that is bearing this problem. If you or someone you know is affected with acne, make sure you learn and tell them about natural acne treatments.

When I finally get it finished, I will try to take a pic without cutting off the sides.

I need to get this done because I have already decided on my next project.
