wishful morning thinking

fairy
good morning girls!  Its been awfully quiet out here in blog land...  must just be that time of year.  there are days lately that I've actually wondered, why am I doing this?  blogging.  And for a couple minutes I entertain the idea of giving it up.  but there is something very addicting about it and I love seeing all my bloggy pals.. so I keep coming.  and so here I am.  With nothing special to say or  to show you... just popping in..  
We've had awesome springy weather this past week, for which I am very grateful for... but I do hear that its supposed to be in the 50's and rainy by the weekend. 
greening
Hubby finally got the yard mowed yesterday..  it was looking pretty rough back there!   I'm dying to go flower shopping.  but it is too early yet.  my little fairy in the first picture is hoping to be out in the fairy garden very soon!  however, I do think I will wait two more weeks before I start planting.... or maybe just one more week.. lol!  Really, I'm sure Ive told you before, but I don't like gardening!  lol... I dont know how to do what I want to do, nor do I have the money to do what I want to do.. and truthfully  I'm not even really sure that I even know what it is I want to do!  LOL!  and thats the truth!  
What Id like is a lot of money.. a brand new house, built to look like a very old farm house, with beautiful gardens and trees and a gardener... as well as a gorgeous patio surrounding a beautiful pond like pool.. with a pool boy.  And well I'm at it.. a housekeeper would be great too.  Oh and lets add in a couple barns for my hubby to play in.  with a white picket fence surrounding it all........ or really I would love to have a stone fence surrounding it all.  
OK.. enough of that dream...  I wish that fairy was for real and she was able to wave that magic flower and make me rich!!  
and since shes not, I suppose I shall go kick my husband out of the bathroom so I can get ready to go to work... so I can at least have some money to buy some flowers!  LOL!
well, I had no intentions of taking this path on my blog this morning... but that seems to be what popped into my wishful little brain !!
have a lovely day!  and hey... if any of you hit it big in the lottery..   please think of me! LOL!
happy day!
oh.. and minus two more pounds last night.. woohoo!

Good morning, sweet lil' Vivvy! I'm not ignoring your blog! I read ALL my bloggy friends' posts daily, but wasn't given the doc's okay to be on the computer much until now. I still have to be VERY frugal with usage because my sighted eye is NOT BEING NICE! GRRRR! Love your cute fairy! And - wow! We have the same gardening dilemma. I also wish for a gorgeous home (much like what you described) and - in my case - something like an English garden (did you ever see the old movie, THE SECRET GARDEN? Like THAT!) but I can't grow ANYTHING well, and I hate being out in the heat so ... I'll also be waiting for the winning lottery ticket. LOL! Have a happy, happy Wednesday! This nut in Houston LOVES YOU!!!

Your yard is gorgeous! I know that you will get some flowers when the time is just right! I blog daily because it is my journal, sometimes with little to say:) My Oldest Sister reads it every day and looks forward to reading whatever I write:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGs!

It's fun to dream. It's what keeps us creative. Your yard is a lovely little sanctuary. I'm totally loving this gorgeous weather. It was a long winter.

Have a super Wednesday. We're halfway through the work week!

PS. I would be very VERY sad if you stopped blogging. Your my morning wake-up/inspiration!

I used to be a big gardener but I was always hurting myself. I bounced back pretty fast when I was in my 30's and early 40's but now? Hmmm... crafting and antiquing are easier on my body and I never kill those things either! ♥

I'm still chuckling at your "wishes", sign me up too! I love all my plants & flowers, but not the weeding. Doing lots of potted plants this year. Your yard is so serene and beautiful.

Hi Viv! I know I am pretty new to your blog...but I wanted you to know that I love popping in and checking out to see what is new or what you have made :) I often wonder why I blog.... I think I like it because you get to meet people that you normally wouldn't meet. I think most us are working and don't get to meet many people outside of work with the same interest ...so we look for it here. I know I do....I only work with one other person and he is a man. I also dream of having the perfect house, perfect gardens and lots of money to spend :) Your yard looks really good compared to mine....My soil is sandy and we have so much crabgrass...it cost too much money to keep up with it....I had a really nice garden one year but I just did not have time or money to keep up with it. My parents had a beautiful yard...but my mom was home she didn't have to work..and my dad would come home and work outside after work he really loved the outcome...he always said it was worth it :) Back in the day women could afford to be home with their families, today we all have to work and it seems we live check by check....anyway I do...and most people I know do. Your fairy is adorable!, what is she made of?

I always read even if I don't comment, so I would miss you terribly if you quit posting.

Your yard is wonderful with all that green! You have enough room to plant some big lilacs.

Your yard is so pretty! We've mowed already three times and it's looking a little wild out back again...lol. Love your fairy! xo Holly

Do not quit blogging - I love seeing your creations and finding out how you're doing! What a gorgeous yard and that fairy is wonderful!

Your yard is BEAUTIFUL! Love the new little fairy. She's adorable.
I love the way you think. :-) I want that Farm House, lots of land surrounding it with barns, cats, maybe a dog or two. Lots of flowers, trees, honey suckles, tiger lillies, rose bushes. A pond with fish, turtles, cat tails, etc etc.
Got a Power Ball lottery ticket hanging on my bulletin board that my hubby bought a few weeks ago. It's good thru May 25th. Keep your fingers crossed. :-)
Hugs
