starting off the weekend!

 Good Morning bloggy pies!    Happy Memorial day weekend!  Someone posted a picture on facebook this morning of a women and a child grieving at a grave site with a reminder that memorial day is not all about picnics and beaches and 3 day weekends..  etc.  I think most of us know that.  I am totally aware of the reason for memorial day and I am very very grateful for those who have fought for and died for the freedoms that we have in this country... and with that said... .I will enjoy my, not three, but 4 day weekend, hopefully with a picnic and the lake! lol!
 So.. I have so much work to do around here... I need a fairy god mother.. probably several of them!   I m starting my weekend out cleaning up my craft room, bedroom and bathroom, then I'm off to go shopping with a friend and out to lunch.  There are two yard sales I'm planning on stopping at on my way to my friend's house.. maybe I'll find some cheap treasures!  fingers crossed!!   Hopefully this afternoon I'll have some time to get some groceries. 
( I only have ONE teabag for this morning!!!) 
If its not raining I'll be out pulling weeds and cleaning up the... lol... "garden".  I LOL, because.. I am soooo not a gardener and I have NO CLUE what the heck I'm doing out there!
 I am excited to plant my fairy garden this weekend.. I bought all these little plants to use this year.  Im hoping to work in the yard tomorrow morning and then maybe shop for the rest of my plants and flowers I have time.  I'm babysitting for violet in the afternoon.  If its nice out, maybe I'll bring her outside and she can keep me company while I plant some stuff... we'll see!
I haven't made any real plans for memorial day.  I figure we'll cook out.  I'm really hoping to get to the lake for a while, not necessarily to the beach, but at least to the lake to sit in the sun for a bit!  OH I HOPE ITS SUNNY AND NICE OUT!!
anyways.. that's all for now ... I'm just rambling at ya's..  I've got go get something to eat and get busy!
Happy Day!

I'd love to see your fairy garden Vivian. I found a nursery here last Fall {beautiful place} that has a section dedicated to fairy gardens. Makes me want a bunch of them! Whatever you wind up doing have a great weekend! : )

Have a wonderful 3 day weekend, Viv. I can't wait to be done with work today. Emma will be participating in a memorial day parade with her marching band but we don't have any formal plans (hopefully something fun for my birthday) but we definitely need to get a handle on our yard too. Fingers crossed for warm sunny weather!!

Sounds like you have a full weekend. Doing a little gardening myself. I have to buy the easy plants and pray I can keep them alive. Have fun & hope you find some treasures and make it to the lake.

Happy Memorial Day weekend Viv! So looking forward to seeing your fairy garden. We haven't started ours, as it has been cool and wet, but hoping that will change soon.

I hope you have good weather and can get everything done that you want to do. Luckily, we are having good weather this weekend, so I can work outside some. But, oh, the house is a mess!

I haven't made a fairy house and garden for a long time. But after seeing a Fairy door at Hobby Lobby I'm ready to try it again! Your plants will be perfect!
