Feels great to slow down. :)

Hmmm I was going to try and take a photo of my hair. Got it cut and colored today. My hair seems to blend right in with the tiger curtains. lol The curtains are beach towels. I put a hem in them and used them for curtains. I made the lion pillow about 10 years ago. The scarf on the end table is a towel. I got the comforter for the day bed at Wal Mart a long time ago. This is the room that I had to clean up for company April 21 st. Feels great to have it cleaned up. It is not a very big room so kind of hard to get around in it when the day bed is made out. Now I have to clean up the other extra bedroom. Does anyone do like me... move stuff from one room to the next??? hahaha! I am ready to sit back and take it easy for the next couple of days. All I have to do is load everything in the Blazer. Gary will be helping a friend move tomorrow so I will be home alone. :) It seems like since he has retired people are coming out of the woodwork needing something done... friends, neighbors, and people we know. Yesterday he had to weld a tractor for a neighbor, fix my step-dad's stool, and help an elderly lady with her electric lawn mower. Have not helped the kids that much... but really need to find the time to help them a little too.

Wishing all of you a blessed week... and please be careful if you are taking a trip. :) Will be keeping everyone of you in my prayers. Hugs, Janie

Finished with the flower arrangements! WooHoo!

My Granny use to say... "No rest for the wicked." I must be awful wicked. lol

Well I finished all the flower arrangements today. Gary also made the stakes. I have 7 saddles, 13 flower pots, and 2 hanging baskets. I am so glad that I started early. We will decorate on Saturday. I will be ready to do something fun. :) Maybe we can take the kids to the zoo.

Tomorrow (Thursday) I will get my hair cut. :) Friday I will load up all the flowers so they will be ready for Saturday morning. Sunday we will be in church and maybe we can go to the zoo in the afternoon; if not we can go on Monday. Wichita has a great zoo. They just got Tigers. Tuesday will be Assistant Living again. We really do stay busy.

Please be careful over the holiday if you have to travel. All of you are in my prayers. Wishing all of you a blessed week with lots of blessings. Prayers & Hugs, Janie

Photo of my mother's Memorial Day saddle

Well it took me about 1 and 1/2 hours to do my mother's saddle. The only roses the color that I wanted was on a wreath. It was really hard to undo the wire. She loved peach colored flowers. The center is a small plaque. The little boy and girl Precious Moments are window hangings. She had 2 whimsical pictures hanging in her extra bedroom of a little boy and girl. She said they reminded her of Stan and Terry Ann. I thought this was a little similar. I got 7 saddles and 10 flower pots finished in the last 3 days.

Hope this finds everyone well. All are in my prayers.
Love and hugs, Janie

Have we been too busy??? LOL

I sometimes wonder about Gary and I. lol Last Tuesday, the 28th we went to the Assistant Living and took my step-dad home. He had stayed with us for 3 days. I was waiting on 2 men instead of just 1. lol Wednesday Gary went to town for something?? When he walked in the door he had a bouquet of red roses that he had gotten at Dillon's for $13. He immediately said ... Well this is late. haha! I said... Oh our anniversary is today. He said... No it was yesterday. haha! We have been married 34 years... is that what marriage is like after 34 years?? hehe!

Well needless to say... I have been on SingSnap. It has become very addictive when you like to sing. I use to tell everyone that I would rather sing as eat. lol Singing has slowed down for me and I have gotten lazy on practicing. Not as good as I use to be with age. :) I recorded 3 songs Thursday night, 3 songs Friday night, and 2 songs tonight. Hmmm They have a community there just like blogger has. lol The Lord only gives me the friends that He wants me to meet. I have met one lady 50 years old and her husband is a minister in Kentucky. The other lady is in her 50's also. One is Sherri and the other one is Sharon. Nice ladies. They have some good singers on there and I am always amazed at how good some of the older people are. haha! I use to think anyone over 35 or 40 years old was ancient!!! haha! Isn't it funny how we all change our point of view when we get older. We even realize that our parent were pretty smart!! hehe!

When the rain quits some I have got to make 25 decorations for the cemetery for Memorial Day. Hmmmm that will be a week long job non-stop. The Lord has been soooo good to me by letting me buy artificial flowers and vines at auctions for hardly nothing. I have 6 BIG plastic tubs full of flowers and vines. I bought about 30 medium sized plastic vases last month for $7.50. They will have to be staked down in the ground so they won't blow over.

This is kind of a long entry so will make another entry about something that happened today. :) All are in my prayers. Hugs, Janie
