Let the Month Begin


Happy May!

Truthfully I never thought it would get here.
This has been a tough school year in a different
way than last and frankly I am D. O. N. E. I 
have 17 1/2  days left but if you want to get
technical, I have Friday off so I guess 16 1/2
days left in this crazy school year.

We had such great weather this past weekend, 
a lot of time spent outside. As you can see my
Iris' have bloomed! My neighbor gave me these
2 or 3  years ago and I plopped them in the 
ground hoping they would come back. Last
Spring I had some but this time around I have
more. Lucky me. Got a lot of my pots placed
in the front and back and then decided I needed
more so off I went to get more. Ha! But I 
was so busy cleaning, rearranging and updating
the deck for this season that I did not get them

We had new gutters put on the house and there
was some clean up form that, though they were
very good cleaning up their mess. Tomorrow
we get gutter covers!!! Mr. Ken will be a happy
guy then. It will be nice not to have to worry
about filled gutters.

We are going on a road trip! Yep, I said it ROAD
TRIP. We are heading to Oklahoma this Friday
to see Mr. Ken's sister and her family. We have 
not it seen them in a looooong time. We'll be 
hanging out at their house, so no hotel worries.  
Looking forward to getting away for a bit!

Hope everyone is doing well, able to get out and
about and feeling comfortable to do so. We are 
still a bit cautious but taking baby steps here and 

Hopefully I 'll be back this week before we head 

~Keep on Dreaming~


  1. Have a great trip!
    So nice things are looking up!

    1. Thanks!

      family again.

  2. Your irises are beautiful! I've always liked them and need to plant some. Sounds like you feel the same as ones here, just get the school year over! The gutter covers are wonderful!!! You and Mr. Ken have a great time on your road trip. Be safe

    1. Thanks, love them and to think I just popped them in the ground.
      Yep, get it done. Hard, hard year.
      We are very excited about not fighting with full gutters.
      We plan on having a great visit.

  3. My neighbor gave me iris last year and I haven't seen them yet:( I'm wondering if they're just slow or I didn't plant them in enough sun. Yours are sure pretty.

    Have a great time on the road trip! I'm itching to go somewhere. Take lots of pictures!

    1. mine didn't bloom the first year but last year and this year they did. Mine are pretty much in the shade most of the day.
      Will do!

  5. Thank you!

    Will be doing a post on our trip soon.
