Just a Thought


 

Hello!

As I was going through files and pics, my 
eyes landed on this. Add your own if you 
like.

*Open a door for someone.
*Give a compliment.
*Surprise your co-workers with treats.
*Leave some flowers on your neighbor's
porch.

Can't believe August is almost finished!

Hope everyone is well.

Project Time!



Hello everyone!

Yes, I am still kickn'. School
has been is session for two weeks
and the kids have been back 6 1/2 
days.

So before school stared I tried to finish 
up some projects. This little table was 
one of  them.

It went from a CUTIE at the top. It was 
green with a  generic knob for the drawer.


 

To a BEAUTY. I painted it black and gave 
it a knob with a bit of sparkle.
I really love the change. This table sits in
our hall between the guest room and my
sewing room.

Hope all of you are doing well. Please stay 
safe!

Fun with Family--Part 2


Hello!
Today we return to our trip to Oklahoma 
back in May. If you remember, we went 
to downtown Oklahoma to a garden fest 
then on our way home, we stopped at one 
of their large lakes and watched wild and 
crazy people skimming across the water.



This one left the water! No thanks!


Later in the day we went to downtown Edmond,
our goal for the stop here was PIE! It is called 
the Railyard and boy oh boy do they have PIE!


Cute little area to fix your tea, get water etc.


Ta-Da! 
Apple Crumble. YUM!



Then we went wandering around. This 
sculpture holds locks. Visitors can 
"lock their love" for each other here.
 


Awesome mural. Sister-in-law in the 
foreground.


On the street corners were these wonderful 
sculptures. Sorry for the double pic.


As you can see below, this one is called  
"Storytime."




So fun to see what would be on the next corner.


Sunday was Mother's Day, so before we left 
town, we picked up a hanging plant for my 
Sister-in-law.  We kept it hid in the car but 
with the help of my nephew and brother-
in-law I got it in the house and hid it in 
our bathroom. Before we left, we gave 
it to her. She was pretty surprised!


On the road home.


Then for Father's Day weekend the crew came 
up here. Lunch at Dad's favorite BBQ restaurant.

Left to right: Dad, Dorothy (Dad's lady friend) 
Cindy (sister-in-law) and Mr. Ken. Backrow:  
Bradley (our nephew) and Gregg (brother-in
-law) I took the pic.


So good to see family!!

Thursday Thought


Do you find time to unplug?

Usually I read but that bug has 
not bitten me this Summer for 
some reason. I have a ton of
books on "my list" to read but 
nope, hasn't happened. Plus I 
have books on my shelf
but no interest. Weird???  

What do you do to "unplug?"


Have a great evening!

Fun Times!













Last weekend the air show was in a 
neighboring city.

The headline for the show was The 
US Navy Blue Angels and The Air 
Force Thunderbirds. We didn't really 
want to be in the middle of everything 
on the airport grounds so we decided 
to find road near the airport to see if 
we would get to see any of the planes.

After what seem like a loooong wait 
in the heat finally we saw some trick 
planes. Then we got to see the birds 
and the angels! What a sight!! They 
go sooo fast that you can't get pictures. 
When they go above your head the 
sound is LOUD!! Gave up trying to get 
pics, happy I got what I have. A lot of 
the time I was pointing and hoping I 
was aiming at a plane.  :)

For just parking and hoping to see 
something, we did pretty well.

Have a great weekend!

Old Glory


 

Good afternoon and Happy July!

Today let's chat about our flag. 
Some call it "Old Glory."

The information below is from the 
National Flag Foundation:

The current flag is the only one to 
have lasted for more than 50 years

There have been 27 versions of the 
American flag each with a different 
amount of stars.

As we know there are:
50 stars representing each state
13 stripes representing the original
13 colonies that became the first 
states in the Union.
History states that the colors of the 
flag represent:
RED--hardiness and valor
WHITE--purity and innocence
BLUE--vigilance, perseverance and 
justice


The flag always flies at the top of a 
staff above any other staff.


After a tragedy the flag is flown at 
"half staff" on land and "half mast" 
on a ship. This occurs for 30 days of 
mourning.

We have all been to a funeral at one 
time in our lives and I am sure you 
have noticed that if there is a flag, 
it is folded a specific way.
Correct? 
Military.com gives a great explanation 
of  the Meaning Behind the 13 Folds of 
the Flag. Most of this I did not know.

There is so much more that can be 
posted on Old Glory, so if you are 
interested ask your friend GOOGLE 
for assistance.

One way or the other my flags WILL 
get outside-hopefully the rain is 
FINISHED!!

Holiday Week


 

Well friends, here we are, the week before 
4th of July.

Time is flying, who is ready? Um...not me!
But beginning tomorrow things will start
happening. I am hoping to do several posts 
this week too.

Do you decorate for the 4th?
I do though not sure how much will get done
this year. Have tried to get flags outside but
that is usually when it decides to rain.
Hopefully we get a break from that.
I have several inside decorations that I would 
like to get out so we'll see.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Summer! WHAT?!

Happy Summer!



Popping in with a quick post.

A Summer bucket list. 
You will probably need to click 
on it to enlarge. Hopefully you 
will find something fun to 
celebrate Summer.

Here are some of the things I 
hope to do:

Go for a walk at night
Ride bikes
Go to the Lake (for the day)
Go to the movies
Swing at the Park  ; )
Have a picnic
Play games
Build a bonfire (in the firepit)
Roast Marshmallows (and  make
Smore's) 

We have planted veggies +flowers
We visit with our neighbors ALL
the time.
I will see my Cousins on Saturday
meeting them for dinner after a 
year of not being able to gather 
together!

What will you do this summer?

Most of this is geared for kids so 
have fun with the Grands or nieces
and nephews too. BUT don't let that
stop you, let us know what you may
do!!

Monday...


 
Good Morning, I hope your day
has started off well.

We had a great weekend ! 
Our neighborhood had it's annual 
Garage Sales, we did not participate
this year. I did go to some of the sales
though. One of my favorite sales was 
the . 25 sale my neighbor was having.
Everything except the large furniture 
was a whopping quarter.! Forgot to 
take a pic but I picked up a nice size 
universal calendar that you use a dry 
erase marker on, two very nice vintage 
tablecloths--yep vintage, some baking 
pans and a white porcelain like Holy 
Family.

BUT the BIG score for the day was that 
cutie in the picture above! Wanna guess
how much...I'll wait. FREE!! Yes, indeed
friends. I said FREE. It was on her curb
with a bunch of other stuff. I cannot tell
you how excited I am ! Looking forward 
to putting this on my porch this winter.
I did tease Mr. Ken that we might have 
"Christmas in July" just so I can put it 
out. He looked at me as though I was 
kidding. HA! HA!

This week will be busy around here. I am 
working at Bible School three days plus
getting ready for family to arrive on 
Friday. We are all going to the Royals 
game that night. On Thursday and Friday 
I will finish prep for them. Saturday we 
will do fun stuff and on Sunday we will 
all go down to my brother in laws to 
celebrate Father's Day.

Whew I'll need a rest on Monday.
Mr. Ken took some vacay time next 
week so who knows what will take 
place!

I hope to be back again but not sure
with this crazy schedule.

Random Thoughts



Happy Wednesday!

It is HOT here! I am not a fan.
Spring left very fast.   :(

We need some rain, getting a bit dry.

Ice Cream is becoming a daily thing.

Who gets a sore throat in June? I am
blaming the air conditioner and the 
heat.

I love 70's music.

Do not miss the early alarm to get 
up.

Salads are my fave in the Summer.

Told you it was random. :)


I'll be back soon with Part 2 of our 
Oklahoma trip.

Good Morning...

I have a little "life hack" for you today.

Keep one of these in your car and use 
it to carry multiple items. I use mine 
for groceries. Trips to Target, Wal-
Mart and I have even used it at the 
Garden center.

Saves on multiple trips back and 
forth and it helps my back too.
As long as I don't load it down. :)

There you have it, my nugget for 
the day.

Enjoy!

One of Those Fun Days



 Hello and Happy Friday!

Today is a big day! 
It is National Doughnut Day!!

Apparently the day was established in 
1938 to honor The Salvation Army 
Donut Lassies. These were ladies that 
served treats to soldiers during World 
War I. Traditionally celebrated on the 
first Friday of June.

Who knew??

I'll be honest here and say I LOVE 
DOUGHNUTS!!!

Chocolate covered ones
Long Johns
Crullers
Twists
Cream filled
Glazed
Cinnamon Rolls too

One of our fave places to get these 
yummies is at our local Quick Trip gas 
station. Oh MY! Love them from small 
Mom and Pop shops too.

How about you? What's your take on 
doughnuts?

Happy Weekend!

mix.
