This was a stay home week for us…
watching the neighbors doggies
enjoying our back yard (and the neighbors back yard Sanctuary)
playing in the summer sun… on the green grass…
Grass about the only living “plant” I can keep kindof alive in my back yard…
between the deer eating my shrubs…fruit trees etc…
and my lack of time, funding and serious lack of GREEN skills…
and the limited breaks between rainy days here in WA…
well… never mind… more on that in a minute…
Let’s get on with the Sunday Scavenger Hunt shall we
198/365 Music to My Ears
having my morning coffee listening to the sound of birds chirping
up early to collect breakfast for their young
while I sit quietly enjoying me time before I have to feed my young! =)
simple pleasures of summer =)
what are my children doing there? oh dear… never mind…
much like his daddy
Sammy wears a hat all summer long
love it. =)
this isn’t my best picture… bear with me…
I took it with my cell phone at the indoor pool
less glare at the indoor pool for my low vision kid… =)
I was trying to get pictures of my kids jumping off the divers block
do you know how hard that is??! =)
there were a few kids in line with my kiddos and their friends
and there was also a dad in line… 7 jumpers in all…
one by one as they jumped in
splash, splash, splash… HUGE SPLASH… splash, splash, splash…
those of us on the side bench got a little wet each time the dad jumped in =)
I never manged to capture the kids in the air…
lots of pictures of bubbles after they went under… *sigh*
but I did get a funky picture of the Clear water flying HIGH in the air??
sorry… its all I got for clear this week! but I like it… for some odd reason….
sprinkles of coconut! =) ???
Have you ever had a Chick – O – Stick??
It is a childhood treat from the 70’s =)
We loved those things as a kid.
It tastes a lot like the inside of a butter finger candy bar.
VERY yummy when used as SPRINKLES on top of ice cream!!
I bought them for my kiddos when we were in Leavenworth last weekend.
I love introducing my kids to things I loved as a child!!
oops…. They never made it to the Sprinkle stage!! =)
201/365 Out of This World
This week we watched our neighbors doggys …and watered their flowers
in her OUT OF THIS WORLD sanctuary of flowers!!
I heart flowers… too much… =)
if I didn’t home school and I worked (thus giving us a second income)
I would probably spend more time and money trying to garden! =)
Her garden is seriously Out. Of. This. World. Beautiful!
I loved every minute I spent in her back yard
(well… not the picking up doggy poo part)
border lilies (love, love)
and yellow roses
and whatever these pretty flowers are =)
she has beautiful hanging baskets too
Calla Lilies and Astibles (spelling?) =)
and these beautiful flowers…
whatever they are…
Seriously “Out of this world Flower Gardens”…
That was just a glimpse of her flower beds
many of those flowers are my favorites too…**swoon**
my problem is picking out flowers that will compliment each other…
how do people do that!?!! (ha ha ha)
well…ok… I have an issue with keeping them alive too… =)
Maybe one day my thumb will be half as green as hers… =)
I’d be ok with that…
maybe if I eat more spinach?
A girl can dream, right?! =)
Anyway… It was lovely spending time in her flower sanctuary …
throwing the ball for Bella … soaking up the beauty…
More Simple summer pleasures.
Slower Summer daze… =)
Do you have beautiful flower gardens?
or do you just photograph them like me?
ah ha ha ha
Now where is my shovel?? =)
ps I had this cooking bug this week too…
and I photographed some of my cooking
feta, basil, Parmesan turkey burgers. YUM.
and a gluten free apricot, raspberry tart. tasty enough. not my fav.
and gluten free banana walnut loaf. YUM.
but today I wasn’t in a food mood… ya know?!
maybe I will post a recipe mid-week… just because…
remember I said Maybe! =)
I am a terrible blogger these days! =)
