Happy Hump Day, well, this is a differant morning for me, had to post it. I love the mornings, rise early everyday. This morning I took my cup of coffee outside to sit, enjoy the coolness and wonderful sound of the birds and what do I see walking down our street, a parade of wild turkeys, say what!!!! I have seen them near our place but down by the river, never by our home, and here they were, a turkey parade just for me. Cam ran and tried taking pictures of them but they got spooked and were running away. These are the pictures that turned out, to funny. Well, shall go make another cup of coffee and go sit out again, see what will happen next, tee hee. Heres hoping your day will hold good things to, Blessings Francine.

Happy Friday, wishing you all a good one. Well, the first day of summer yesterday was just beautiful,warm, sunny with a gentle breeze blowing,thank you Lord. Had a wonderful supper with Mom,the fish soooo good. Then went back and planted her flowers,now she can look out her window and enjoy the pretty pots of color. The only thing is I forgot to bring the camera once again,but will be going back soon to visit Mom so will snap a few pictures to post. Will not be taking off to the lake this weekend, for have a Nephews 3 year old sons Bday party to attend,YEY!!! family time. Love to be around the little ones and a barbacue to boot, can`t wait till Saturday. Will leave you with a post of a few pictures of my flowers pots, the flowers in the gardens are not that great, to much rain, they need to feel the warmth of the sun. Enjoy the weekend, be blessed, Prim Hugs Francine.

Happy Thursday Primfolk, would you believe I see a round yellow ball up in the sky,wow,I think they call that the sun, it has been way to long since we have had sunshine, great it finally has come out of hiding from behind dark grey clouds. After this post I shall pour a hot cup of coffee and go sit and enjoy the warmth of the sun on my old bones. How blue can you make me?? very blue, I love the color blue. I tend to always go for the color blue in alot of things,be it clothing,quilts,dishes, ahh lets face it,everything. I thought I would change the decor on my little blue trunk, it`s time, change is good I`m told. Finally left the small blue tin oil lamps,loves them so, blue patterned pantry boxes and dark blue bumpy candle on top. I find I just fiddle around way to much trying to get that perfect prim look, so after awhile thats how I left it. Going to take my Mother out for supper this evening, we picked a resturant called Joey`s Fish and Chips, mmmmm mmmmm good. Then go back to her place and plant some flowers she bought awhile back. She loves her flowers but has a hard time planting so thats where I come in. She has a cute little patio out back and boy she just keeps buying and buying flowers like she`s back on the farm, oh well,how can you say no to a 86 year old,if it makes her happy so be it. Will take some pics and post, she gets so excitied for she has wildlife right in her backyard smack dab in the city, a pair of Mallards come for dinner everyday, bunnies and even deer wander in to eat at her bird feeders,there are railroad tracks with feild out back so guess the deer hang out there somewhere. Well,enough rambbling on, will go out and catch a few rays, Warm Blessings Francine.

Good Monday Morning, hope all is well with everyone in Blogland and you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend. It has been raining here in The Peg since Saturday afternoon, feeling a little soggy, still hopeing the sun will come out, keeping my fingers crossed, but the weather man says more rain this week. Last evening thought I would putter around with some of my Sat. yard sale finds, find a permanent home for them, since I couldn`t putter outside in the garden. Took some time but finally placed the little syrup jug and 4 yellow bowls with the other yelloware in my chippy pink hanging cupboard. Oh I love that prim cupboard so, paid $45.00 many years ago,still is one of my favorite pieces, now it holds some of my dear to my heart goodies. Bought it at the Side Door Antique store I haunted as often as I could and I might add it was very often, the store was on route to my Mom and Dad`s when they still lived in their house, and I was always there visiting them and helping with chores as they grew older. I loved walking into that wonderful old store filled to the brim with such old treasures,hunting for that must have goodie, and thats where I found the pink cupboard and many of my antiques, spent alot of hard earned money there but the more I spent the better the prices,tee hee. The Antique store is long gone now, as is my sweet Father and my Mom lives elsewhere now but I still see the owner of the store Rob every Spring and Fall when the Antique show has it`s sale, he is the organizer, so it`s nice to chat once again with him. Well, thats all for now prim folk,enjoy the day, shall go pour another cup of coffee, OMG, is that the sun I see, oh but for a minute,think I`ll go start building an ark, LOL!!! Soggy Blessings Francine.

Tomorrow am going to Southbeach Casino,it`s about an hour away from where I live, feeling lucky now,tee hee.Cam is doing a job there, thats what you get for living with a handy man, everybody whats him to do this or that. The Casino is right across the street from where he will be working so I thought I might as well go play the slots for abit,my bad. Will let you all know how I`ve done, Warm Blessings Francine.

Happy Tuesday Prim Folk, beautiful morning here, birds singing,bees buzzing, all is good. Well, I`m a picker, garbage that is, was out last evening walking the dog, today is the garbage collection day, so there was garbage out last evening for pick-up. Walking by this one place and out by the rest of the garbage was this big ole metal watering can, oh my, my heart beat a little faster, I wanted it so, who would throw out that?? Went back home, waited a little longer, till darkness fell, and out I went, scooped up my prize,happy as a lark with my new old watering can. It`s a little worse for ware but thats the way I like things, just like me, tee hee. Like they say, other peoples juck is someone elses treasure, just had to share my little garbage story. Enjoy the day, Happy Trails Francine.
