Busy, busy busy..............

"The hurried I go the behinder I get!"  So true of me lately.  But I keep moving along and hopefully making some progress.  It's been so hot here that this morning I got up early and outside to water about 6:00 a.m. and then I sprayed weeds (poisonous ones) after the girls were out and back in.  Yesterday was bills and I went through a bunch of old paperwork that was no longer needed and filled my garbage in the kitchen!  I always feel I am doing well if my garbages are full and if there are cleaning
rags in the laundry! LOL!
This is after I got done paying bills and cleaning it all up......the tea towel on the table was made by a friend several years ago.........the fabric strawberries in the bowl were made by me........
The boys toys that I ordered have all arrived and just need to be wrapped now.  I have one more thing I need to order from Amazon today and that will be it.  Their birthday toys were ordered from a great place that I highly recommend.........

They have the "approval" of several parent and teacher organizations and encourage learning yet also fun.  They have all kinds of categories which was a big help to me as I don't see the grands but once a year.   You can search by age, sex, interests, price and bestsellers.  There are reviews and their service and shipping was fast and efficient.  I picked out some things and then consulted my daughter who is a mother and a teacher and I had actually picked one toy that one of the grands had been wanting!  Bingo! (No, he didn't want a bingo game...just an expression).  The other ones she was sure would be a success and she said she had heard good things about the company.  I think Grandma Sam scored!  Now, the real test will be when they open them and I see their reaction! LOL!  I can't wait!
I  found that lawn edging I was looking for and lo and behold it is carried at Walmart although it has to be shipped to my house.  There is no delivery to my local Walmart store.  But there is free shipping over $50.00 so not a problem.

It's on sale right now for $52.00 for 20 feet which seems pricey since it's plastic but my neighbor's has been in for many years and has held up well.   I  haven't made up my mind yet.  I'm thinking maybe the kids could help just put rocks there as those are free and plentiful down here! LOL!  I have a riding mower and I'm not sure that the space for the lawn mower wheel would fit on there.  My neighbor weed whacks around theirs.  Oh well....we'll see but now I know where to get it if I want it and also to share it with you as several of you expressed an interest.  Here's the link to it
That's all for today.  I'm off to renew library books (by phone), iron, bake,  cook and clean...all the usual stuff and more!  Have a great Saturday...see you tomorrow for YOP!
Happy Trails!


  1. I agree, full garbage cans and full dirty rag baskets equals a good day. I bet you are so excited for your grands to get there. You surelynhave done quite a bit to get ready for their visit.

  2. I like the lawn edging. It's medieval rustic and modern at the same time. The toys for your grandsons sound fun.

  3. You are a busy, busy lady my friend. I feel the same about the garbage and recycling bin.

  4. I think my comments are on the wrong posts! Oh'll understand! You KNOW me! Hugs!

  5. I think the edging is nice, but if your grands are anything like my boys, they would love to fashion a wall from stones, for free and you get exactly what you want!

  6. Oh you sure are a busy one!!! Love the tea towel and berries. Adorable!! That's very nice edging. That is a really good company for toys!


Thank you so much for stopping by and for commenting. Comments are "grist for the mill" and I appreciate each and every one of them!
