Busy as a Bee

I'm linking up with a Southern Daydreamer for

Larry and I are taking the RV (5th wheel) out for the first time this spring this weekend. We are just going about 20-25 miles away to Shoal Bay, a nice Corp of Engineer Park.

Doesn't that look inviting?

I spent Sunday cleaning the inside (ladybugs like to descend upon it during the cold months) and bringing all of the dishes in to run through the dish washer. Larry washed the outside, which was quite a chore. We always have to scrub the top (because we do not have it covered) and the awning (because even though we keep it closed, water runs into it when it rains and it gets yucky.)

We'll have to get groceries tomorrow night and finished packing everything. I'll have to take some hand stitching projects. Click here to see what I am taking with me to work on. I'll have to pack books, magazines, and movies because it is supposed to rain off and on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The park we are staying at does not have internet hookup so I will have a lot of catching up to do when I get back. See you then.

Take Care and God Bless!

Sunset and Gardening

It started raining here on Friday afternoon about 2 o'clock. It continued to rain off and on through Saturday morning. It finally stopped and this is the view out my window on Saturday evening.

And a couple of minutes later as the sun was setting. . .

My small raised garden plot.

It is finally starting to look like something.

This is the second planting of lettuce. It looks pretty sad, but hopefully it will perk up after being in the ground for a week or so. The first planting was enjoyed by some hungry animal. I think it was a groundhog because I saw one out in our yard one afternoon. But, we have also had 3 or 4 raccoons run over on the highway by the house so they might have been the culprits. We got a shock fence to put up to keep animals out. I just hope I'm not the one that gets shocked.

Take care and God Bless!

Color for the Patio

The town I live in is very small, therefore, there are few businesses, unfortunately. We have a Wal-mart (not a supercenter), a grocery store, a Dollar General, a shoe store, a couple of antique stores, and a flower shop. Yes, we have several gas stations, hair salons, a few restaurant and fast food places, and several banks. That's about it. Oops, we also have a couple of auto part stores, a plumbing store, and a two  furniture stores. We do have a small hospital and a medical clinic. It is enough to get by and there are elderly that probably never leave town, unless they need to go to a specialist.

But, if we need anything out of the ordinary, we have a choice to go west 40 miles to Fort Smith or east 40 miles to Russellville. This weekend we headed to Fort Smith to get some flowers to plant in large pots to put on the back patio. There is an awesome store called "Sharums Garden Center" that has beautiful plants that range from 3-4 inches tall in starter pots to large plants that are over 1 foot tall. They have hanging baskets and large pots full of different plants in a variety of colors hat are great for a front porch or a patio.

So we looked to see what types of plants they had in their beautiful patio pots and purchased the same ones separately and smaller plants. Now I have 6 great patio plant pots to spread around the pool and patio.

Entrance Redo

I mentioned in my last post that as I walked through the house I noticed I needed to pick up and redo. Basically, I had left the area empty after I put away the Christmas and winter decorations.

So I swept and dusted and then added a few things to make it look more homey and inviting.

And outside . . .

Be sure to stop by Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday posts.

Favorite Things Saturday

A big thank you to Laurie at Bargain Hunting with Laurie for hosting "A Few of My Favorite Things" Saturdays. 

I have several wood items that my dad made me that I will treasure forever.


I'm glad I went around with the camera because I realize I need to spend the morning tomorrow sprucing up by picking up and moving things around to fill in holes, such as on the ironing board and the bench. I also noticed I have a sofa table in my entrance that looks kind of bare. 

Hey, that could be my Metamorphosis Monday post.

Take Care and God Bless!

Happy Easter (Late)

I hope all of you were able to spend time with your family and/or friends during the Easter weekend. I just realized I had an Easter post ready and never published it.

I wanted to share this wonderful song with you. It is a great reminder of everything we live for. 


Take care and God Bless.
