Abigail golfing...









My 4 year old daughter Abigail has developed a obsession with her golf clubs. She is constantly wanting to go to the driving range and to the golf course. She must take that from her dad. I don't know how to golf but I am going to sign up for lessons this week. I'll let you know how that goes.


Dont' get me wrong I LOVE my children but I must say I am having a sigh of relief that school has started. I don't know where the summer has gone. I am worn out from the constant running and worrying that goes along with teenagers. I will enjoy a little break and some time alone with Abigail.

My sweet potato plants have taken over...........





Good Morning!
It is a wonderful cool morning here this morning. My sweet potato plants have taken over but I don't mind. I sure have gotten my money's worth from them. If you take a start of of them you can stick it into another pot and it will grow. It will droop at first but be patient it will grow and grow...
I also took a few new pics of Abigail's playhouse. This is the first time that I have planted sunflowers. I love them. I can't believe they came from a little seed. I feel they are a little reminder of God smiling down on us. My great grandfather had them and they remind me of him.
Have a great Day!

Have you ever heard of a bottle tree?




A few weeks ago my mother- in-law was on a quest for bottles for a bottle tree. I had no clue what a bottle tree was. The next thing you know my father in law dropped off a locust post so that I could have a bottle tree of my own. I have had such a good time looking for unique and pretty bottles. The tree on the bottom is the one I have started.( I'm sorry it's sideways) The other two are of my MIL's bottle tree. At some point I will post some pictures of her lovely home. I know bottle trees aren't for everyone but I sure have had fun with it. I am not at all superstitious. I just love the beauty of the sun hitting all of the bottles in the garden.


The following is from Wikpedia
-Bottle trees originated in Northern Africa during a period when superstitious people believed that a genii or imp could be captured in a glass bottle. Legend had it that empty glass bottles placed outside the home could "capture" roving spirits at night, and the spirit would be destroyed the next day in the sunshine. This practice was taken to Europe and North America by African slaves. The practice of hanging bottles in trees became widespread in the Southern states of North America, where they continue to be used today as colorful garden ornaments.
Bottle trees have been featured as accessories in most of the prestigious flower show garden displays all over the world.
Additionally, glass bottles, which have long been placed in windows for color ("poor man's stained glass"), are also commonly used to line flower beds.

A special day with my daughter






My oldest daughter and I were asked to do a photo shoot for hair. We were given free hair services. There was one small catch .. we had to let our stylist do what ever she wanted.
It took 2 straight days of coloring , styling & make up artist. I could hardly smile because I had so..o.o much make-up on.
I had never had my hair colored only highlighted. I was a little more than nervous. I now have chestnust, red, blonde. You name it I have it!
The photo shoot ended up being a blast! It was so fun to have this special time with Jordan. She will turn 17 on the 11th. I don't know where the time has gone. I am very proud to be her mom.
We will not find out for almost a year if we made the hard back hair book that you find it salons. No matter what, we had fun and free hair services.
