Lights Camera Christmas!

YAY I finally got the outside lights up!!
Was starting to wonder if they would make it up at all this year.

A few little twinkle light in the Poinsettia

And lots of snowflakes and icicles ☺

After living in Alaska for 3 years, we really miss the snow.

So come Christmas, Snowflakes take center stage.

icicles too

Wishing all a wonderful Memory Making Merry Christmas!

Fertilizer Friday ~ 12/10/10

I'm joining Tootsie over at Tootsie Time
for Fertilizer Friday

We've been having rain and fog....

but nothing could deter my Meyer Lemon from ripening it's very first fruit!

One of the baby Roses still holding on.
leaves are changing colors tho

I think the roof of the deck must be helping
 this Impatiens stave off Jack Frost!

I'm sure most of you know, but some may not,
you can get free used coffee grounds from Starbucks
for you garden

I just side dress where I plan to put my Tomatoes next year
and let the rain "percolate" (sorry couldn't help it!)
it down into the soil. Come Spring I'll work it into the soil.
Great for any acid loving plants!

Not hop on over and see everyone else's gardens!

A Little Bit of Christmas

So I have some of our decorations up...yes I know I'm way behind!

A few of my Snowmen made it into the corner hutch.
I've been collecting Snowmen for as long as I can remember.
Most come from Thrifts or garage sales.

a basket of Snowmen in the entryway
(sorry for the bad lighting) 

This is the tree shaped shrub I purchased a few weeks ago.
It found it's home in the kitchen window, the only window facing the street.
I found the mauve garland at Walmart, along with the pink Dragonflys.
The icicles and prisms came from a garage sale, the angel from an Estate Sale.

Lit up ♥

I'm joining the Open House over at Coastal Charm

I Believe...

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born

A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we lived!
Have a seat . Relax . . .
And read this slowly.

I Believe...

That just because two people argue,
It doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
It doesn't mean they do love each other.

I Believe...

That we don't have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.

 I Believe....

That no matter how good a friend is,
They're going to hurt you every once in a while
And you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow,
Even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I Believe...

That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.

I Believe....
That it's taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.

 I Believe...

That you should always leave loved ones with
Loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe....
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe....

That we are responsible for what
We do, no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

 I Believe...

That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs
To be done, regardless of the consequences.

I Believe....
That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I Believe....
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down
Will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry
I have the right to be angry,
But that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe....
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had
And what you've learned from them and less to do with how many
Birthdays you've celebrated.

 I Believe....
That it isn't always enough,
To be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
The world doesn't stop for your grief..

I Believe....
That our background and circumstances
May have influenced who we are,
But, we are responsible for who we become.

 I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find
Out a secret. It could change your life Forever.
I Believe.....
Two people can look at the exact same
Thing and see something totally different.

I Believe....
That your life can be changed in a matter of
Hours by people who don't even know you.

I Believe....
That even when you think you have no more to give,
When a friend cries out to you -
You will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
That credentials on the wall
Do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe...
That the people you care about most in life
Are taken from you too soon.
'The happiest of people don't necessarily
Have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.
