Adult Truths


*** Adult Truths ***



1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.


2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.


4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?


6. Was learning cursive really necessary?


7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.


8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.


9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.


10. Bad decisions make good stories.


11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.


12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.


13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.


14. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.


15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.


16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.


17. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.


18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.


19. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?


20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!


21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.


22. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.


23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.


24. The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.


Heal the past, live the present, dream the future.

Sunny Skies and Bird Song

Please join me over at Tootsie Time for Fertilizer Friday
and see what's happening in our blog friends gardens  


We have been having some gorgeous weather
and all the fruit trees are exploding
and the birds are singing their hearts out!

** warning...this post is photo laden **
couldn't help myself ;)


The Nectarine we rescued from our new neighbor
who was going to throw it away.


Such pretty pink blooms


When he ripped it out he broke some branches and I'm still trying to shape it.
One of my Rosemary's showing off it's stuff in front.


This is a Cherry Plum "sucker" from my Sister.
it was about 12" when I first received it.


Look at the gorgeous blue sky!


It is totally covered in blooms!


A branch spray over the pond


My blooming Cherry Tree 'Glacier'


It makes for a great shade tree for the backyard.
I have a fruiting Cherry in the front garden
which is much younger. Pics of it later.


The bulbs are bursting in front too ♥


The fragrance is delish as you walk by when the sun hits them


A few Daffodils among the trailing Rosemary


My Poor Man's Orchid (Berginia) is so happy this year!


Grape Hyacinths


I found this great little solar security light at Walmart for $10.
It's all adjustable and works fabulous!
I had a dark corner in front that none of my lights hit,
so this is perfect.


They have all sorts of different designs in solar garden lights this year.
I fell in love with these at $3 each!


A nice inexpensive way to light up the front for security reasons.

Who Do You Think You Are?



Jar Of Hearts


I know I can't take one more step towards you
Cause all that's waiting is regret
And don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore
You lost the love I loved the most

I learned to live half alive
And now you want me one more time

And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are

I hear you're asking all around
If I am anywhere to be found
But I have grown too strong
To ever fall back in your arms

And I've learned to live half alive
And now you want me one more time

And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are

Dear, it took so long just to feel alright
Remember how to put back the light in my eyes
I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed
Cause you broke all your promises
And now you're back
You don't get to get me back

And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

Who do you think you are?

Who do you think you are?

Who do you think you are?

This song just seems to speak to me lately......

Powerful Women

Live your life in such a way
that when your feet hit the floor in the morning,

Satan
shudders and says...

'Oh shit ...she's awake!!!'

I'm A Grandma.....

Brandon and Tanya adopted a German Shepard mix puppy
a couple days ago.
I have a grand fur baby!


This is Lily ♥


She's such a little sweetheart.
But she's already had to go to the ER.
She was saying "hello" to their cat and
took a swipe to the eye,
which went through 2 of the 3 layers 
but the cornea is OK.
Just need to watch it and apply antibiotics
to it. 


She's a Daddy's Girl


Tanya's parents, brother and Tracy came over and we had a BBQ.


Cyndar wanted to play with Lily, but she's a little big..
besides Lily's eye she has stitches from being spayed.
Cyndar's excitement was just too enthusiastic.


Linda, (Tanya's Mom) and TJ danced up a storm!


Thank for BBQing Tanya!
Linda was singing for their music.


LOL
We had such a great time!


Bailey turns her back on Lily...
"don't tell me you're bringing another one home?"
No Bailey, she's just visiting :)


Lily chewing on her toy...


think shes pretending it's the cat who scratched her??


XOXOXOXOXOXOX

Also,
I received an award!
This one is from Maggie from The White Farm House.
Thank you Mags!!


OK
Now I have to list 7 things you don't know about me.

Let's see....

1. I can't swim. Believe me, I've tried. I think some people are just not meant to know how...My sister, who can't swim agrees, with me on this one! ;)

2.  My kids used to call me "Chyna of the Court", as in Chyna from wrestling and we live in a court.  When we moved into this house in 1994 there was no landscaping. I used  railroad ties and bricks from the farm to do the hardscaping. They couldn't believe how much I could lift and move. LOL

3. Easter is my favorite Holiday. Everything is new and fresh, like a new beginning and anything is possible.

4. I love to watch all the paranormal shows on TV.

5. The older I get the less I like to cook.
Can you have cooking burnout?

6. I've always wanted red hair,
ever since my sister put her red wig on me when I was little.
She had and still has a friend who has red hair and I love it...and her.

7. I can wiggle my ears!
Yep, I'm one talented lady! LOL 

There ya have it!

Now I need to choose 10 blogger to pass the award onto.

Faded Charm
Four Sisters in a Cottage
Linens Lace and Lattes
Rose Petals and Rust
Shirley Stitches.
Those Northern Skies.
My Vintage Mending
Last Dollar on a Dish
All in my Cottage
Treasures from the Heart Gifts

OK ladies, time to write a post with 7 things about you.
Then pass it on to 10 bloggers.



Have fun!

It's Getting Closer!

They've been sent!


Lovin' the seal!


I love the invitations Tanya and Brandon picked out
for their wedding.
The way they unfold into a ribbon tied card of loveliness.
It's like a mini scrapbook with fun pockets holding all the necessities. 

It's just around the corner....

Yikes I need to get my shoes!
