What will you do today? Happy Memorial Day!

I cleaned my deck off last night, or finished doing it! It's so nice to sit down and enjoy knowing it's all swept and a fresh tablecloth and chenille bedspread is on the glider. I got really comfy last night, with a great breeze blowing across the back yard. Today, I am taking my other glider outside. I've had it in the dining room, for extra seating, besides, it's cute!
But, I am making room for my new chairs, tired of the clutter! I think I am bringing up another formica table to go with the chairs. I have had the blonde boomerang legged one in there, but I think it's time for a change.. and, formica tables just remind me of Summertime when I was a kid! So cool and clean..I gave my green set to my daughter when she got her own place.
Now, I can use my turquoise chairs out on the deck.
But there's always the weeds in the garden to deal with, especially after all the rain we've been having. After all, I want the tomatoes to look like they did last year (above)!
Me? I'm definitely hanging out with my doggies-Angel, Baby, and Ziggy! I may even take a cue from what they're doing right now, napping after breakfast. That breeze on the deck is very seductive.

Camping fun!!

My trip to my friends property was really nice! Believe it or not, I had never slept out in a tent before! My daughter and her boyfriend went too! Evey thing tastes better cooked outdoors. I wish my little trailer would have been ready to take, but it was still fun. They are in the woods so far back it's crazy! My dog Baby was having a blast, too. The other two stayed home. Maybe next time, but I wanted to see what one would do. She stayed with us, when we didn't have her on a tie out. My daughter pointed out this picture looks like I hunted her and she was my "catch"...Not the way I meant it to look~!
Here, she looks alive, at least. LOL
Bryan, my daughter's boyfriend, by their tent.

 I am gonna start practicing in my little trailer, until I get her roadworthy!
Hope you all have a great Memorial day!

China Cabinet Change/ Dining room redo part one

I've been meaning to do this for a while now. The dishes I found at the thrift store have been sitting in my van in a box and I finally took time to bring them in. The are the Colorcraft Jamaica Bay pattern, by Taylor, Smith and Taylor...with green and turquoise, and they match my other dishes well, so I redid the china cabinet in turquoise and white.
Tonight, I'll pick an apron winner...don't forget to enter by posting one on your blog and letting me know!
