July Fun


As in many cities and towns the 4th will 
looks different. Here in Lenexa, Kansas 
we normally have an actual parade but 
not this year.
The parks and Rec people came up with 
the idea of a Porch Parade where residents 
could enroll and decorate their porches. 
Each entrant was placed on the city map and
everyone is encouraged to drive by the houses 
on the route.

Here is our entry. Enjoy!

Wishing you and your family a happy 
and safe 4th!

Time Passes By

Hello! Hope everyone is well.

My quest to be a bit more organized and
get more decluttering accomplished while
I am on break continues.

Mr. Ken and I are notorious for taking
pictures, LOTS of pictures. Always had
some kind of camera growing up and
nothing has changed as an adult.

When Mr. Ken and I were dating soooo
long ago, film cameras were still the way
to go, then cameras with SD cards arrived
and BOOM we all went digital.

We continue to document everything that
happens in our lives. Most of our phones
have had cameras and we use them. Plus I
have a big Cannon that I got for Christmas
that I use too.

Pictures provide a way to step back in time
to remember past events. Some happy some
sad. Sometimes "oh yea, I remember that."

Over the last to days I went through 107
packets of pictures! Yes, indeed! The
picture above shows a fraction of the
packets I went through. These are 
pictures that begin when Mr. Ken and I 
started dating in '98 and ended with my 
birthday in '07. We still have rolls to 
develop. Need to find out who still does 
that if any do. I bought clear cases
from Michael's that have 16 individual 
cases in each case, I put as many pics in 
each of the cases.
Now our pics are more protected from 
any calamity. NOT that there will be one. 
Glad that project is finished for now, we'll 
see if we can find a developer.

Take care and be safe.

Thursday's Thought

~Keep on Dreaming~

Sunday, June 14, 2020



Remember when we started this project?
The pic above was taken on April 19th.

This was when we added the weed canvas, 
it was taken on May 3rd. I guess we didn't 
get a pic of when we added the dirt and 
plants. Hum...

WELL... ta da! Here are the beds as of this 
morning. Flowers blooming on the right 
and veggies springing up on the left with 
some Marigolds mixed in. Hopefully soon 
we will have tomatoes, onions and peppers 
for salsa! Ole'!

Brace yourselves! These first two pics are 
before the haircut. As most of you know 
through Facebook, my stylist was MIA for
a bit due to COVID closings. Well, my shop 
did not reopen and I couldn't locate my 
stylist. Fast forward and long story short, 
she decided to switch to just Men's hair-
cutting. So, I who trusts literally NOONE 
with my hair had to find a new stylist.

TA DA!!!! Found a new stylist and she was
great!  New do, new me!!!!

I feel sooooooo much more like myself. 
Now I know after not being able to get 
my hair cut for several months, that I 
NEVER grow my hair back out!

Last BUT certainly not least we have a 
new addition to our family!
I'd like to introduce my Great-Nephew 
Everett to you. He was born last

Hope everyone is well and enjoying your 
almost Summer weather.
Mr. Ken will be on vacay this week, so I
will be in and out.

Leslie at Dandelion Sprinkles said it
correctly, it is the little things in life
that bring joy. Hers was an Egg Salad
Sandwich. They bring memories of an
There is so much upset and frustration
right now, I just want to stay in my quiet
little house. Tomorrow we will head to
church for a Community Get Together.
It will be a time for sharing, listening
and learning and it will be nice to see
church friends in person (social
distancing) of course.
Life right now is definitely not perfect,
it is up to us to make it wonderful and
that is where those little things in life
bring us.

Take care my friends!

End of the Month

Good Morning!

As we come to the close of another 
wild month, I hope you have enjoyed 
the "little things in life."

We continue to hang at home, getting 
projects done or just resting, We aren't 
"resters" by nature so we have had to 
learn a new routine. How about you?

June promises some house projects, 
vacation days for Mr. Ken and time 
spent with family (all together is one 
place) for Father' Day.

We should be in our last "phase" of 
sheltering in place and normal should 
return but I think it will be a new normal 
for most. As things continue to open up 
here, people are still hanging at home, 
restaurants are being supported by 
carryout or curbside pickup, stores are 
seeing more customers returning,
and outdoor spots are very busy.

I hope that June is a smooth month for 
all my friends in blogland!

PS: I think I lost a comment on my last 
post if I did and it was yours, it was an 
accident-sorry. Please re-comment if
you would.

Blooming Beauties

Happy Friday, I hope you are all doing 

Last Sunday Mr. ken and I enjoyed an 
impromptu picnic at one of our local 
parks. As were leaving we stopped at 
the rose garden.
The rose garden has been in the park 
since 1974 and is named in honor of 
Helen S Cuddy, for her "dedication
and beautification through her life-
long service and work with garden 
club projects."

It was also established as a community 
project of the East Central Kansas 
Garden Club.

There is an estimated 500 different 
roses is the garden.

The garden is a very popular place 
for weddings.

There is a fountain, a Gazebo, a sundial, 
peony bushes, plus many shrubs, trees, 
ornamental grasses, bulbs and perennials 
to be seen in the garden.

Our blooming season for roses has been 
slow this year, several cool days. We are 
going to have sunnier and warmer days 
ahead which I'm sure the roses will enjoy.

So many pretty ones to see.

Such delicate creations!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Memorial Weekend Happenings

On Saturday, I took Mr. Ken on a 
"Mystery Date." We are lucky to have 
this cute little event space in 
neighboring city. The Hostess came up 
with a different way to bring people to 
her home while "social distancing" 
continues. She titled it "A Fresh 
Perspective" and I booked the house 
for two peaceful hours.

Welcome to Vintage House, a unique 
event venue. One can plan all types of 
parties and social events for small groups.
This cute little home is situated in the 
downtown are of the neighboring city.  
The photos below tell their story, so enjoy.

This area above was where we enjoyed 
some  light snacks and flavored water. 
So fun!

A mean card game was played before we 
had our light snacks.

Vintage House truly is a Happy House. 
We enjoyed the two hours spent having 
fun together away from home. Ms. Lauri 
has a beautiful house that she is willing to 
share with anyone wanting a quaint venue 
for their event. This package provided us 
with the opportunity to see the house AND 
get to spend time there.
I think she hit the nail on the head with 
this creative idea. When viewing the 
calendar to book our day, a lot of dates 
were already taken. Several people had their wedding there and came back on their 
anniversaries to celebrate by themselves. 

Hope you enjoyed Vintage House.
