Summertime blues...

and reds and yellows and pinks!


                                                            I love hydrangeas                         

Just not enough time in the day lately to write.  David came home from Jessup, Georgia and was home a week.  He left Monday to go to Rockingham, NC for a month or so. 


                                              Dahlias  (Finally got rid of the slugs!)

I helped William move into his apartment.  He's been there about two weeks and is finally getting settled in.  Now he's got to decide whether to find a job or go back to school...hopefully both!


                                         My "Happy" Dahlias...they make me happy!

'Bama Girl is home for the summer.  She's taking core classes (like American Lit, the second part of Alabama History and Biology) at the community college .  She takes the classes for her major at Alabama during the year...the community college is much less expensive for the classes she needs that are not related to her degree.  She also got a job!  Yea!  We were afraid she wouldn't be able to find one for the summer because so many other people are looking for them.  But...on her first application and interview she got one.  Now...it's not the greatest, but she's making more bucks than she was at Books-a-Million last year.  Now for the kicker...she's working at the place I am least fond of going into!  Wal-mart.  Need I say more?



So...Weight Watchers.  I've lost a total of 9 lbs. in 4 weeks.  Not great...but at least I'm losing and not gaining.   I've finally started walking/running again...more walking than running!  That should help kick in the weight loss.  And do I have a tip for anyone on WW!  Have you tried Hostess 100 calorie cupcakes?  Mmmmmm!  1 point per package!  The chocolate ones are a little dry, but the strawberry and cinnamon coffee cake ones are to die for!  Just sayin'!


                                                                       My swing!

By the way, I threw in  pictures of my front yard...I spent a lot of time digging out monkey grass and re-doing all my flower beds.  So...I'm glad all that work is done and I can finally enjoy all the flowers...if it would quit raining!  Scratch that!  I'd rather it rain than be dry and hot!




  1. I like the Little Debbie 100 calorie snack cakes, too. Weight Watchers brownies are good. I wish we had the Chester's popcorn. I get the Smartfood (another Frito-Lay product) White Cheddar 100 calorie popcorn. You don't get alot in the little package but it's nice to take to the movies. And I also get the 100 calories packs of baked Cheetos. I used to live on Cheetos when I was a teen. Still love them!!
    Hugs, Susan

  2. Your flowers are beautiful. I don't like monkey grass either!

  3. Hey, your progress is admirable! Keep it up girl! Love the flowers too!
