My garden happiness

I have been wishing for two years on this Plumeria plant to just give me one flower, two have now become my happiness.
I looked at it in the morning and's looking good.  Then by 3 in the after noon...happiness shines in my garden!
It took some time but now that it is here, I need to scream with excitement!!
My Mother always wanted a red plumeria plant and now I hope she is looking down from heaven, this is for you Mom!
  Enjoy every bloom it gives us.

How long will it last?

This is my neighbors new car or clean version of an old one.
The kid who lives here has had a red car every year I have lived on this street.
He doesn't drive to good so they don't last to good.
I wonder how long it will take for him to mess this beauty up.
It's July 26, let's count the days when this finds the junk yard as its new home.  It will be very sad.

Sunday secrets

My beautiful daughter came home from being with my God Mother in MN for 7 weeks with.....Blue hair on the left and Purple on the right side of her head.
Two years ago she came home with dark purple hair after spending 4 weeks there.
She couldn't wait to wash her hair because Grandma's water doesn't come out as fast as ours.
When I went into the bathroom the next day this is the surprise I got on the towel rack..

I guess I should be happy that she wrote me a sweet note saying that she was sorry she messed up a towel.  I'm glad my towels are old and she got a nice shower.
Her hair is really something I will have to get us too.

Broken but working

I know I have the oldest cell phone around.  But, it still works and my kids have my up grade.
When the numbers started to fall off I wanted to cry.
This isn't a good time for my phone to die.
I need it to get a job, to text my baby girl when I need to feel some love, when I take a walk, just in case!
It needs to live just a little bit longer.

My poor phone, you have heard every kid ask for something, heard me when I'm lost, heard bad news from death to I'm laid off from my job and now to a job offer I can't wait to start.  Just a little bit longer, we don't have this job yet, we won't drown, we will stay strong together, even when everyone else has walked away.
Thanking my phone for a good life seems strange but, it's my life line right now and I'm grateful for it.

A Tea Party

I have a pen pal from Ireland and she sent me this tea bag.
Having a little tea in the after noon is always fun.  This one is really tasty.
I love my different tea bags.

I've been a little quiet here lately.  But, life is looking up for me.

Aug. 1st looks like it's going to be a good change day for me!
I'm looking forward to a new start in life.

Vintage Pokemon

I guess these are really vintage now.
Everyone is playing the new one on their phones.
Wonder how much these are worth now?
Got to keep them around for a while.  I posted these up on Face Book and funny how my son called me and said, Hey Mom those are mine.
Now I know that my kids read what I post on

Snail Mail

My amazing friend in the mail, Bonnie, sent me this beautiful card. We chat in comments on her blog, she is so much fun.
She knows I'm going crazy looking for a job, and all those life lessons that I'm going through.
I love this card, it made me smile.
Hope all is good with you!
