playing around

PicMonkey collage
I just love playing around with Picmonkey photo editing!  I planted flowers and played in my yard yesterday, which is in terrible need of a lot of attention..  But, when I tried to get some pictures, everything looked so blaah!  so I doctored them up!
My house is old and pretty beat up and in need of scrapping and painting.  its isnt however stained like I made it look in these pics.  But I love how it looks this way! lol
I didnt use the flower pics because they just didnt have much character..   Maybe in a couple weeks when they have filled in a little more.  I still have a lot of work to do out there today, but I really am not feeling well at all, and Im not sure I'll get back out there.   I have a head cold that is kicking my butt.  not to mention that my whole body is a bit achey from working out there yesterday.  Ive taken three tylenol and drank 4 cups of tea since 5:30 this morning.. its almost 9:00 and Im still feeling pretty foggy!
I probably have told you before that I really dont like gardening.   I dont.  I do all container gardening.  I still need to do my fairy garden.. hmmm.. I just inspired myself to feel better for a trip to brockport to sarahs garden shop, where Im sure I'll find perfect fairy garden plants!!    (I'll just have to take my box of vicks kleenex with me!)
Definitely need to feel better for tomorrow.. beach day with the family for memorial day!   I bought myself a new beach chair and I have patriotic paper plates, cups and napkins!   I cant wait to play with torry and marlaina in the sand!  I bought Torry a little chair for the beach too.
I dug out my bin of patriotic decorations.  I dont have many!  maybe I should work on that.  hoping to put them out later today.  I have a miniature memorial day parade in my brain!   hmmmm.... !  Gosh, I wish I felt better though!  oh well.. things to do, things to do, things to do!
 I think I hear thomas the big white stray cat mewing at my front door for his breakfast and I am now inspired to at least get dressed, so off I go!
have a lovely day everyone!

Hoping you feel better!Nothing like a day at the beach with the grandkids for inspiration!! My aunt used to give us all mini flags and have us sing "You're a grand old flag"! It was a ton of fun!!

Morning Vivian! It just dawned on me that I don't have to work tomorrow! Holiday!!!! Too hot here to go outside, I guess I will have to begin on 4th of July, too. Oh My Gosh do I love the way these pictures look. Your Gbaby is absolutely adorable in his chair. Have a great Memorial Day with your family! E

I hope you've had a chance to get some rest today in preparation for a fun day with your family tomorrow. How sweet is that itty bitty beach chair!!

Your gardening pics are very pretty. If my husband didn't have such a green thumb, I'd do all container gardening too. I'm good at dragging hoses and cutting the lawn. That's it.

My walking cast and I braved 94 degree heat today and hit an outdoor antique market. Whew! Hot. Very hot. I might have to join Josie in the sprinkler later tonight. Hugs!
