Rain




Just had to show off our beautiful blue skies and the rain clouds coming over the mountains. We don't have many rain falls except during the summer months; the local weather guys refer to it as the "monsoon season!" Yea, hello Mumbai is calling and they want their term back!! The other night it rained so hard, my car is now clean, so Mother Nature saved me a few bucks to take it to the car wash, but the windows still need some help!!! LOL


Today is another adventure with Miss Daisy. My mother remodeled her bedroom and now her living/dining room. It's been whirl wind visits to Home Depot and Lowes for tile samples, paint chips, and area rugs...oey vey, the whole thing has exhausted me. So today we're going to put the final touches on the living room...picture hanging time. I'm taking my nails since last time we did this in her bedroom, she had no nails except the originals ones she's had for 50 years...I'm only 8 years older than those nails!!! She did a great job, though, or rather, the contractor did, but under her strict instructions and specifications. She bought this gorgeous Persian rug years ago....paid an arm and a leg plus the souls of her future grandchildren and insructed me to her remind her that this rug would be passed on to my brother, Fred. Well, Fred informed me the other day he didn't like it or want it!!! Oh yea...it's mine now, mwahahahahaha!!!! But for now, it stays under the formal dining room table where it looks gorgeous.

Well, need to get ready to sweat in my 87 year old mother's 85 degree house (not if I can help it) since she's saving on electricity and turns off her central air conditioner and opens the windows!!! You know how to spell, "sweat lodge?" Well, I must be very sneaky and turn it on and way down while she's not looking, but then she knows my intentions and just may foil my little plan!! LOL Oh, my dear friends, please don't forget to enter my giveaway...look at blog below. Take care, God bless and beware of gift giving goats. Peace out.

How cute about your Mom!!! 87 and redecorating! My Mom is 87 too, and her style of decorating is to put every picture she owns on every wall available and then fill in the gaps with all the cards she has ever received! I am over the moon about my son's marriage. She is really a wonderful girl. **blows kisses** Deb

Picture-hanging time usually makes all the not-so-fun aspects worth it!
